"can only be summoned by..." (and similar wording such as in this case) means the monster can be Special Summoned in any matter, as long as it has been Summoned in the described way before (of course, sending it to the deck or hand "resets" this) (including substitutes of course, such as Contract with the Abyss).
Contract of the abyss card should let you do ritual summon ANY DARK RITUAL monster right? I've put the card set, got 2 4 lvl monster, & 1 cakra (dark ritual monster lvl 8) on the hand. The abyss card wont activate at all & I cant summon cakra, why is that??? My oponent got only 1 monster with no special skill. Is this card a fraud?? Can someone help me figure this out please?
You can only ritual summon a monster with contract of the abyss if you tribute a monster with the SAME level, (exactly equal), read again tve description of the card bro
Just tried to summon chakra and I had resurrection of chakra in my hand along with garlandolf and another ritual monster with 8 stars. Laid down resurrection of chakra and it only let me set the card and not activate the effect for some reason. There were no cards on the field saying I couldn't use spell cards etc. glitch maybe?
