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.

just got my 3rd copy, 33% success rate confirmed.
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.
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.

Why can't sniper huner activate Dark World effects?

To plainly put it, Snipe Hunter discards not as an effect. Think of it as having too many cards in hand and discarding a card. Trance discards as a card effect. Card Effects and costs are two different things.

Whoever said this is rigged to 66% chance of rolling 1 or 6 is dumb, every single person who played this against me pulled it off in one turn. this card.
Snipe Hunter rating B+, Really? This card is Rating A easy, easy.

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 is quite useful in a fiend/dark necrofear deck. Instead of using trance archfiend, just use this to discard one of your dark fiend monsters, while also having a chance to destroy your opponent's monsters.
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.

Somewhat like an improved version of twin-barrel dragon.
