  • 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.


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.

If both players use this trap and ask for 2 different types does it cancel out?

No, the newest one played would take precedence so if DNA was on the field as Insect and the other player played DNA surgery and called out Dragon then Dragon would be the type canceling out the first DNA

Not unless you have cards that work with this one, like "System Down," which banishes every monster on your opponent's field... (considering they are all machines now)

Props for using the original name.
While I usually hate Frog the Jam clauses, I know that this card does not fit in with the rest of his "Archetype".

Please be reminded this is a "TRAP" card ;D

Why. Just why. Do they simply want all players to forget anything about strategy and use Cipher burn.

Cipher + equip trap + this = 3 cards setup as well as 2 ST zones locked.

If you don't run back row removal or negation you deserved to lose. Basically to all decks.

"Burn" refers to specifically Effect damage.
Cipher Soldier is a Battle Damage card, so I'd call it an OTK or Beatdown strategy. Maybe even a blowout or "Magic Cylinder" for the Spikeshield win condition.
