  • Able to destroy your opponent's monsters.


  • Can only use monster cards to banish.
  • Requires monster cards in your graveyard in the first place.
  • Needs more monsters depending on the level of target.


Magical Merchant and Veil of Darkness can be used to easily put some monsters in the graveyard, though they can be risky and gimmicky at times. After banishing the monsters, you can summon Doomsday Horror to have increased attack or also to return the banished monsters back into the graveyard, or just use Escape from the Dark Dimension to special summon any high level strong DARK monster.



Banished categoriesBanishes from Graveyard / Banishes from Graveyard for cost / Banishes for cost / Banishes from your Graveyard
Monster/Spell/Trap categoriesDestroys Monster Cards / Destroys Attack Position Monster Cards / Destroys Defense Position Monster Cards / Destroys face-up Monster Cards

I have the same problem, now I'm losing due to time out. I had 5 monsters in my graveyard. Tried to remove 4, 2, even 1, 3 and 5 but it kept saying "The number is invalid. Please try another one". The monsters on the field was level 2 and 4 respectively.
look glitch
Fought a gold rank 5 in gold 2

If relinq still sucked one of your monster when you did that, you can't destroyed it by skull lair.
Because relinq still got a "protection" that's count as a spell card, and skull lair can't destroy a spell card.
So, first you have to destroy the card that relinquished took by attacking relinq, then, you activate skull lair.

Just kidding
I dueled someone with the filthiest deck running this card, escape from dark dimension, and magical merchant
I tired activating it and it lost me the duel i selected every combo of monsters in my graveyard and it said invalid ewch time
For everyone saying this doesn't work on Relinquished: look up the effect of Djinn Disserere of Rituals and read it carefully.

Could someone tell me why are they giving us Sky Striker Mecha - Eagle Booster as a SR?! Is k...
I already got everything from this event using only a very simple deck with Blue-Eyes, Dark magi...
Wow, people do really believe every BS they read. Can't wait for the next silly theory.
It's very efficient. You can end your duels very fast and have a consistent deck.
