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

Here are some cards you can discard as cost for the effect of Snipe Hunter.

  • When discarded, The Fabled Ganashia revives himself with an additional 200 attack.
  • Sinister Serpent can be retrieved from the graveyard during each of your standby phases, but keep in mind if he is sent to the graveyard the turn he was retrieved he will be banished during your opponent's end phase.
  • Discard Gusto Griffin to special summon another Gusto monster from your deck. A good target for this is Caam, Serenity of Gusto because she is able to recycle Gusto Griffin back into the deck for Reuse and also draw a card to replenish your hand.
  • Volcanic Shell, while in the graveyard, can search another copy of himself from the deck. This allows you to effectively replenish your hand and lets you activate the effect of Snipe hunter up to 3 times for the cost of 1 card in your hand while also thinning your deck.
  • 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.

I really don't understand why Konami hasn't yet limited (to 1 copy) or banned this card. Common, 4 out of 6 chances (66%) of being able to destroy any card on the field (monster, magic, trap) by simply discarding one card per failed attempt. This card is so OVER POWER and destructive that it will litterely change the game...

It doesn't matter if the chance is 67%, 33%, 20% or 90%. If you have bad luck you'll always fail. And then you might think that it is rigged even if it's not

I play Blue eyes and over the past few days I have had about 5 duels exactly like in the video, all were lost of course.

What funny I could 100% win if this freak destroyed just 1 card.

Snipe Hunter works decent on average but if you have bad luck there's absolutely nothing you can do. Too bad, that Blue-Eyes need to rely on this card

I'm not sure it's just bad luck

I played a lot of board games and I don’t remember getting so often triple or even quadruple 1 and 6

And 1-2 failures is pretty standard

If I got a nickel for every time this card gives me a 1 or 6, I would be a millionaire.
For example, when some GameA commenters ask for a Snipe Hunter limit, you can be 100% sure that’s typical case of inferior intelligence.

To limit a card with less than 2000 attack points that relies on luck. Just no.

Nobody in this post ever mentioned 'Down Syndrome', no one. Your intelligence is inferior, isn't it?

That's the problem with the people that comment here, they are most of the times, retarded and put words in the mouth of others.
Success rate of this card is VERY HIGH!
I almost never roll 1 or 6

Same here, I realized there are two types of commenters in this Snipe Hunter section. 1. The guys who want it limit it (talk about mentally challenged folks) 2. The noobs who think the card is bad just because they rolled a 6 and then edit pictures attempting to prove their points as valid. (Inferior intelligence)

LOL AT YOU ! Reply
People in reddit use MODDED duel links clients to prove their opinions as valid.

Isn't that Lame?
On the other hand, that lame ass player is attempting to destroy FACE DOWN MONSTERS huge lol, maybe that's why he FAILS. Damn use Snipe Hunter to destroy some 3000+ atk monster or at least backrow.
More like 6%...Really !? Hmm, let's see together if is the case okey ;) First: you need a 2,3,4,or a 5 to destroy a card on the field (that can be a monster set in defense or face up, that can be a spell set or face up and that can be a trap set or face up). Second: that card as only 1500 atk right but may i remind you guys that it's need only 500 atk to be half of your life points !? That card is so OP that many of you people's use it in they're deck because it's boost the chance of winning or turning the ties in a tournament. I'd be curious to see if people's would still use it if this one was reversed and if it was only the 1 or the 6 that destroyed a card on the field because that would really be a card based on luck as it would be supposed to be ;)
The guy who posted a picture of rolling a 6 twice in a row, that guy copied the dice with photoshop and pasted it again down below in the turn record.

The chances of Snipe Hunter work as intended.

Never trust computer generated rng, I believe that they have increased the odds for 1&6. Just like the dice monopoly event, you will always throw a 1 in normal room and always get 3 in a treasure room.

yep, the dice roll in that event is wacky too. Also, notice how you ALWAYS roll right into a Vagabond.
First duel I used this card it rolled dice four times, all four rolls landed on 6. I decided to keep track. It has now rolled 117 dice, with 91 of those rolls landing on 1 or 6. In other words, I have discarded 117 cards to destroy 26 cards. Game is rigged or I have terrible luck. Still useful to get specific cards in graveyard though.
40% chance to get 6
40% chance to get 1
20% chance to get everything else

It says something that BEWD has to rely on RNG to get rid of threats.

Is there any better card that you can put into BEWD deck to set up your GY apart from this card? I will be happy to remove this card if there is any.
