PackResonance of Contrast [UR]
Level-up reward--
Victory against--
Card trader--




  • Able to destroy any card on the field, if your dice roll is not 1 or 6.
  • Effect can be used continuously as long as you have cards to discard as cost.


  • Weak ATK and DEF stats.
  • Need to discard cards as cost to use effect.


Resources for Discard

You can send Volcanic Shell to the Graveyard as a cost, then pay 500 Life Points to get another Volcanic Shell from your Deck to your Hand, and discard as cost again. You can discard Thunder Dragon to the Graveyard, draw 2 more Thunder Dragons to your Hand, and use as cost for Sniper Hunter.

Dice Support

You can use this trap card to get another chance at rolling dice.


  • This card’s discarding effect is treated as a cost to use its effect, therefore it does not support Dark World archetypes.
  • This card also support decks that requires discard, like Dark Necrofear, in order to utilize their effects from the graveyard.

This is the worst card in the pack. Now this is something that actually deserves a 3 or a 4 out of 10, since basically it destroys your own cards while forcing you to discard with it's mandatory effect. Poor souls the ones that get this crap.

Fuck off you warty dick-loving idiot, you probably vividly imagined yourself doing that first. What a buffoon and a buffoonish narrow focus on something so stupid. You must be proud of your selective ADD like the idiots above me, good job for you? Idiot.

This card is the reason I start playing hazy back. Getting snipe multiple times in a row is more annoying than getting stall. I'm gay btw.

How is this card different from Trance Archfiend? Their texts seem identical, but one allows you to activate Dark World effects while another can't.

You need to discard a card before Trance Archfiend's effect kicks in, no?

Snipe huner says ''... discard..., then...'', Arcfiend says ''... discard..., AND if you do....''. So Snipe's effect is only destroying a card the discarding is the cost of the effect. On the other hand Archfiend's effect is discard AND increase attack. So it's effect includes the discarding. And Dark Word monsters needs to be discarded by an effect, they don't work if they are discarded as costs

I agree as I did play the TCG when this card was unlimited. I'm still surprised to see this card as Konami normally doesn't bring out any cards into duel links that's on the TCG's banned/restricted list

I just don't like how risky this guy is. 1/3 chance to fail is pretty significant. You might discard 2-3 cards and wipe your opponent's field, or you might have just lost 2-3 cards for nothing. Either way, the chance of losing more cards than your opponent is pretty big after multiple uses.

obviously you would want to combine it with cards that you want sent to the graveyard. If you discard bacon saver who gives a shit if you roll a 1 or a 6. You could (in theory) summon turn 1 dark necrofear with this guy while simultaneously clearing cards. add him in a bamboo/jar of avarice deck and watch the surrenders roll in
