Nope, you cannot flip it the moment you set it
I attacked this face down card, then its flip effect activated. My opponent select my attacker card, then my card was sended to the graveyard! Why? My opponent didnt used another spell/trap card.

Maybe the opponent's card has "your opponent cannot activate cards or effects"
My trick to destroying six sam synchro, take control of it for it effect attack LP directly than use destruct potion on it before the end of the turn lol
Snatch the opponent's monster, use it to destroy another monster, and destroy the stolen monster with Assault on GHQ. Good combo for a mill deck.

I remember facing a deck using that strategy. It is annoying.

snatch your opponent monster and use "oops!"

Take control of the enemy's monster and then use dimensional gate to banish it. When the effect of the gate in the gy is activated, the monster stay in your field. A very easy way to change the control of monsters (and clean the spells/trapd, if you use storm to destroy dimensional gate).
This card shouldn't destroy the taken cards when you're own spell zone is full -__-
why doesnt it work to gain opponent's toon monsters? The card doesn't target right??

I think it does target the monster you want to take control of.
This card is bugged in version 1.9. Selected opponent monster is destroyed when flip effect is activated.

Tried to make a deck around this card. This guy is actually very good. Manage to combo it with removal cards and it makes quite a good control deck.

yes, incredible with damage gate
So my opponent had three monsters on their side of the field, one of them a face-down Jowls of dark demise. I attack the jowls and its effect activated as it should. When he targeted my monster, it got destroyed because his field was full. I don't think the card should work that way.

Not to sound like a soar loser about it. Maybe I'm just unfamiliar with the circumstance. The situation never came up in the legitimate card game. Just verifying if the ruling is accurate.

The card works as intended, because when it flipped, the effect of taking control enemy monster activated, and because the field is full, instead taken its destroyed. The same case happened to parasite paracide with full field on the opponent side, its destroyed and the effect not activated and straightly sent to the owner graveyard. Sorry for bad english
This card is amazing, and highly under-rated.

Try thinking outside the box in it's usage, and take a hint from the image of the deck posted by "Italoipo".

Pair this car face down with traps to protect it for 1 turn. "A feint plan" - prevents any attack of face downs for 1 turn. Enemy controller, or "windstorm of etaqua".

Know that once it flips, it's exposed in atk position with 200hp, and work with it.

If you flip, and take enemy card, they can be face up or down, doesn't matter.

The taken card can be used in tribute summons immediately! So grab their card, then tribute it, and your atk facing Jowls . . now you've got a lev 7 or higher alone on the field.

I used Jowls to grab a "skilled red magician" that had 4 tokens on it, activated his skill to go thru my own deck and summoned an archfiend...nasty.

If Desert Sunlight is set beforehand, the effect can be used on the same turn too.
