It can be great in tournaments like MCS
Could be a good tech against scrubterror

But final battle attack boost is still a problem

Not advisable though as not everyone uses a Subterror deck. You can potentially counter Subterrors but fail miserably against Neos, Red Eyes, etc. This would just waste a card in your deck slot.

No, don’t carry this. Waste of slot vs every other deck than SubT and even vs SubT isn’t even a guaranteed win. Unless you are in a Side deck format, it’s not advisable idea. Just like System Down vs Ancient Gears.
Doesn't work on flip monsters that aren't labelled as [Type/Effect/Flip] e.g. cards like Golem Sentry. Possibly an oversight on Konami's part, but worth keeping in mind.

That would be because those are not Flip Monsters. The /Flip (or FLIP: at the start of their text if they're old enough) is what makes something a Flip monster in the first place.
Nice in an Anti-Trap deck
I had this card face up and yugi Muto flipped guardian statue I'm not sure why he could do that??

Wrong. Shroom isn't a flip monster.

Only monster with "effect/ flip" can be negated by this
Why isn't this card not stopping Guardian Sphinx effect from activating?

It's not a Flip monster. (Previously known as a Flip Effect monster.) Only monsters with /Flip in their type, and FLIP: at the start of their text will be negated by Royal Command.

A flip summon is not the same as a flip. the effect trigger is the summon after, not the flip.

Functionally, Guardian Sphinx works identically to how a Flip Summoned Flip monster would. It just doesn't activate from any other means of being flipped face-up. It's more apparent on monsters like Ghostrick Skeleton, which work IDENTICALLY to Flip monsters. They just aren't affected by cards like this, since they're not a Flip monster.
This card is active, no flip effects, man eater bug and hiro shadow scout become nothing but trash

This is more useful in farm deck than pvp.. not many flip monsters in pvp unless you run worm deck. Plus any more copy than 1 copy of this is dead draw and less defensive ST for yourself
