Pros

  • Greatly increases the ATK of the equipped monster.

Cons

  • The controller of the equipped monster takes 500 Life Points damage
    every one of their Standby Phase.
  • The monster equipped with this card has its effects negated.

Tips

  • You can use Parallel Twister or Double Cyclone to destroy Axe of Fools
    in order to have that monster regain its effects. These cards acts as a
    killswitch to Axe of Fools’ effects.
  • Gandora that has regained its effects after Axe of Fools was removed,
    will stay on the Field.
  • Similar strategy can be used to negate Spirit-type monsters to prevent
    them from returning to the owner’s hand.

Combo

You can use Massivemorph on your opponent’s monster to disable it from direct attacking, and then equip that monster with Axe of Fools to make your opponent take 500 Life Points damage every one of their standby phase.

Negate Effects

The Unfriendly Amazon would benefit the most from using Axe of Fools because it will negate this monster’s effect of requiring a Tribute of your own monster during each of your standby Phases, and greatly increases its own ATK to a whooping 3000 ATK. Similarly, you can Normal Summon Mist Archfiend and equip it with Axe of Fools, therefore Mist Archfiend will not be destroyed during the End Phase and you do not take 1000 damage. Using Axe of Fools on Gandora the Dragon of Destruction will negate its effect of being destroyed during the turn it was Normal Summoned, but it will also rob its effect of banishing cards from the Field to increase its ATK. Using Axe of Fools on Cloudian - Eye of the Typhoon will further increases its ATK to 4000, while allowing it to be switched to DEF position without being destroyed, but at the same time it loses its immunity in Battle and can be destroyed by your opponent’s monsters.

Healing Support

Since using Axe of Fools will require Life Points every turn, you can consider using these healing cards. Golden Ladybug is overall better because it will not clog your backrow.

Returning to the deck is treated as a cost according to GB cards' ruling.

Cost is not an effect, therefore it cannot be negated by Axe of Fools, even if the effect that requires that cost is negated. That's why Bestiari still can get out of the field.

And since Bestiari is no longer on the field after the cost is paid, its effect is no longer negated, and another GB is summoned into the field.

In other words, using Axe of Fools on GB monsters is a foolish idea XD

Rare Metal Dragon + Powerful Rebirth + this = PROFIT

I think that's the thing - Rare Metal Dragon has nothing to negate, so it loses nothing.

.....but in that case why not just use something like BEWD instead

Powerful Rebirth is lv4 or lower. But still, you are right as you can go Kaibaman -> BEWD instead.

So there's really no point in using Rare Metal Dragon here.

If I equip this card to petin dark clown will I still get his effect, becuase he is in the grave yard

Yes, graveyard effect would still activate as this card is not equipped anymore when in the graveyard.

.....But that also begs the question, why the heck you are using a terrible card like Peten in the first place, let alone equipping it with this card.

+ Panther Warrior = easy 3k beater at 500 LP to keep on the field.

Why? I'll tell you why, it's because if you go back and take a screenshot of the thread it's going to look very similar to mine. Conversations on this thread should be strictly yugioh or duel links related and nothing else, it's as simple as that.

I didn't derail anything but you sure did by saying "watch out, grammar please" which was both stupid and unprovoked.

How come Archfiend Emperor still gets destroyed at the End Phase even though it's equipped with this card?
<< Anonymous(Anonymous No. 2)

Because that part is a Condition, which is not effect and therefore cannot be negated.

Give this to your monsters while having Prime Material Dragon out on the field. It'll turn that -500 LP into a +500 LP every turn.

You must of missed the part about negating effects

you get a chance to deal 4000 battle damage for one turn. Also you can use his effect before setting the axe, so if your opponent set only one or two cards you can possibly get a OTK.
