The card doesn’t work, I’ve ran it against multiple decks that summon from their graves. Like a blue-eyes deck, by passed my XYZ effect. I don’t know how. Maybe needs a patch or something

You need to activate this card to prevent your opponent from activating effect in GY. If you opponent activate effect before you activate this then it will be useless.

Prevent activation and negate activation is different thing.

Dweller doesnt negate anything just prevents them from happening. If you chain dweller to the activation of a grave EFF, the effect will still resolve properly since it already activate prior to dweller. Basically dweller has to happen before an effect activates.

You must activate dweller first before your opponent activate anything in the grave.

Necrovalley is the only card preventing movement from the GY. The rest, like Abyss Dweller, just negates effects.
What kind of deck this card can counter for these current meta?. I've just back after long hiatus

It counters Magnet Warriors and Triamids.
This card is very situational, I feel like it's a win more card because of its low stats. The graveyard effect is still good but I don't think you can summon this to overturn the result of a match
Horrible card. Weak stats. Many graveyard effects can still be activated. Not a single useful interaction in today’s meta. Blue-Eyes, Superheavy Samurai, Dark Magician, fireking, noble knights... all of them still can use their graveyard effects.

He probably chained abyss dweller to already activated effects thinking this would UNactivate them. Reading is hard

This card is basically a big threat for both defensive and offensive if atlantean heavy infantry is attached on it. Moreover, XYZ block strenghten its defensive power against most of meta cards like harpie slash or blue eyes alternative. You just basically need to know how to use this card :))

usually Xyz beat down decks take advantage of TTH instead and have no room for more traps.
This card is broken, opponent activates in end phase, yet, during next standby phase the effect is still active. Fix this glitch, when end phase is done, thatsbthe end of the turn. Effect shouldn't still be able to negate graveyard effects.

Are you sure they didn't activate it during your draw phase?
Too many people don't realize you have to turn toggle on and use this at the beginning of your/your opponent's turn for this to be useful.

ssssh you better keep it a secret
Only bad thing about this card is the artwork. The creature shoula been on the center of the picture, not hidden in a corner. At least I hope the 3D animation does it more justice.

Look at Dweller in the Depths.
It is barely visible. Abyss Dweller has better fate
Well done Konami. You released this XYZ now. Basically EVERY deck that can make a lvl4 must use 1. The new xyz staple. That means that all the other earlier xyz generic 4rank xyz monsters that are already in game or have not yet released will be just never used. Clap..clap..clever move.
