Pros

  • This card can be searched by A Cat of Ill Omen from your deck.
  • It manipulates the Monster Type on the field which certain themed decks may benefit. E.g. Declare Thunder-Type then use Makiu, the Magical Mist and Declare Dragon-Type to increase Buster Blader's attack.
  • Your opponent might be running a deck that benefits with the Monster Type that you declared.

Cons

Tips, related cards, skills

Destroy them all!

Declaring all monsters into a certain type, will allow you to use cards that destroys all monster of that type. Cards like Eradicating Aerosol and Breath of Light are examples of such cards. It's important to remember that using these cards will also destroy your own monsters.

A Cat of Ill Omen

There are a lot of potential combos by using DNA Surgery, but its main problem is that you can only obtain 1, and getting it early in a duel can be a problem. You can get 2 copies from leveling Ishizu, which can be used to get DNA Surgery from your deck easier.

I saw this broken piece of crap on a Platinum replay today. It destroyed an optimal Koaki deck. No level 3 weakling monster should be able to become a 3300 attack God against every single monster. This card needs to die.

Yes it is annoying. Not only it makes cipher soldier a beater, it also shut downs almost all synchro summoning. Generic synchro such as Stardust Dragon and Black Rose Dragon, and Shiranui Squiresaga still go through, though, so it's not that bad.

"Harmless" card shuts down opponent's entire deck. This is horrible, gets in the way of all summoning. I am only beating the Cipher DNA idiots because they're extremely dumb potatoes afraid of flipping up their big beaters so they give me the time to build a board that breaks down theirs.

So ready to see this my card trader. Wanting to run this with lava golem mask of restrict cipher soldier and cocoon of ultra evolution. With the weevil parasite skill of course and everyones favorite Lady swordswoman. Maybe a queen for the protection of my created insects.

You are a terrible person and insects should refuse to play with someone who doesn’t actually use an insect deck.

what if there are two on the field, with different types declared?

The new card that just activates will override the one that already face up.

does the 'not active' go to the graveyard on this situation? Or what when opponent destroys the 'newer one, does the effect of the old one stay active?
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
it just stays active until it gets destroyed or the other gets removed, if the newer one is removed the older one will resume effect.

If you choose "spirit" do all the face up monsters also get returned to hand? If yes, I think there could be a combo with a card that makes your monsters stay on the field.

Has anyone tried or knows if this works

We need official "term/keyword" to this "sub-type" things. Maybe "species" XD

Cherry Inmato Reply
fusion,synchro,xyz,and potentially link is a "kind". and that is an official term used on sacred serpent's wake. later on they are referred as "type" on the effects of cards like invincibility barrier and inspector boarder. there are "subtypes" that are written the monster type. how are people confusing secondary types with monster types is beyond me btw
<< Anonymous
Cherry Inmato Reply
btw primary typings are officially called "monster type" while the other types listed after that; effect,flip,tuner,spirit,link,toon etc dont have an official term unless you count sacred serpent's wake referring to fusion synchro and xyz as "kind"
<< Anonymous(Cherry Inmato)

The stuff like Flip and Tuner is listed as "card type" in the official database. (Though that is also the case for the "primary typings" like Fusion and Synchro.)

You're likely never going to find a card referring to the things fan-termed "sub-types" since it doesn't make sense for something to randomly support, say, Spirits, Toons and Unions all at once.

has anyone tried bujins with this card?
it could make them all to beast-warriors so every bujin could use the graveyard-effects

Yes, ironically this is also bujin weakness

Bujins are still op, they made it to kog without ties of the brethren almost a week ago.

So if you have 3 of these, and 3 DNA Transplants, you basically have 6 of the same card???

DNA transplant: Declare 1 monster ATTRIBUTE
DNA surgery: Declare 1 monster TYPE
Attribute and Type obviously aren't the same.

For anyone who doesn't know, Attributes are the element of a monster Ex. Light, Dark, Wind,Water,Fire,etc.
Monster types: Fish, Beast-Warrior, Beast, Insect, Fairy, Spellcaster, etc.

update: blader is meta
2 dna surgery ruling
Kinetic soldier deck vs buster blader deck. I let him resolve his dna surgery first calling dragon, I had the option to chain mine but common knowledge I decided to use mines after so mines would replace his. He fusion summons dark paladin, I use my dna surgery calling warrior, and he still got the boosts cuz all the monsters were still dragon. My Soldier didn’t not receive a boost either, so his dna surgery was still in effect. Is this an error in the game?
