Since this monster can be easily Special Summoned to the Field to make a direct attack in order to bypass your monsters defense, using Drowning Mirror Force will return it to the Extra Deck, however you opponent can chain with another Mask Change to halt Masked HERO Anki’s direct attack and send it to the Graveyard, since the ruling is that, when a monster that declared an attack is sent to the Graveyard, then it is no longer treated as a monster that declared an attack.
Returns from your opponent's field to your opponent's Deck
My Masked HERO Anki declared a direct attack and my opponent used Drowning Mirror Force, I chained with a mask change, get another Masked HERO Anki on the field and it was returned to the deck when the chain resolved.
Maybe because you lose ALL attack monsters? Shuffling back into the deck is for most decks no real help. It's a hardcore stall card. There is nothing tactical to use except to prepare a own OTK with such cancer cards.

Why did someone with anki attack me and i couldnt use my drowning?????
This card will always work if you use Astral Barrier (make it a direct attack instead). Drowning Mirror Force + Astral Barrier + Draining Shield = Gain LP, shuffle all of their attack monster into deck and have the upper hand.
my personal thoughts on this : ik some say its op and some say its overhyped but lemme tell this it is a rage quit worthy card as i tend to throw it face down when least expected in TCG and a bunch of xyz synchros and so on go back to the deck just like that (doesnt target , doesnt destroy = hrder to counter) my opponents tend to quit after getting hit by one but i think it will have less impact in duel links with current meta and format but still be very careful when least expected
Do you blame anyone for quitting after they're hit by this? Thanks to the Speed Duel Format, we only have 4000 LP and we don't have Main Phase 2. Recovering after getting hit by this is just incredibly difficult, and the ONLY thing you can do is not get hit by this in the first place.

Not sure why people are so worried about this card. Widespread Ruin is marginally better than this card, it doesn’t require you to be ass out for a direct attack and it protects your monsters. A lot of people should have it (furries) and yet not too many people play it, this new “OP” trap should be much different.
The thing is, your victory should be guaranteed if you pull off this card. It's not too hard to summon monsters from your GY (or just swarm), and you can even "survive" WoD with overwhelming ATK. But there is almost no way to save your monsters after they're sent back to the deck. Its only weakness is you can overcome this card with piercing damage or attacking an attack position monster.
