Pros

  • Negate and destroys.
  • It can negate almost anything if Sanctuary in the Sky is on the field.

Cons

  • Can only be activated if The Sanctuary in the Sky is face-up on the field.
  • Weak to high attack normal monster since it can't negate a monster summon.

Tips

If The Sanctuary in the Sky is an important card in your deck, you can essentially bring more than 3 copies in the deck by bringing Zeradias since it can help search for the field spell. Same with Planet Pathfinder except you need to use your normal summon and tribute it on the field to use its effect.

Counter Trap support

Here are some other monsters whose effects activate and/or trigger when you activate counter trap cards. They can be used together in a deck centered around activating counter trap cards and then triggering monster effects to get the best possible value out of them.

I can’t believe this crap has been around for so long and completely unlimited. No cost, brainless wins with one single card. Who the hell thougnt adding something so broken would be a good idea.

But then they only have a 1600 atk monster that isn’t that hard to run over.

That's 1900 with that spell which ties with my beaters, and effects I'd use to special summon others get divine punishmented.

But you only have one, so if the opponent has other plays you’re f***ed.

My opponents get excellent draws in general. There's not much more that can be said from that.

I have played Vylon Epsilon's effect to destroy my opponent's monster, he used divine punishment to destroy my monster, but my Vylon Epsilon was equipped with Vylon Segment, which says in the description that it protects the equipped monster from trap cards.

Why my monster was destroyed. It should be protected byy Vylon Segment...

Segment only protects from effect that targets.

Divine Punishment doesn't target.

Couldn't use it to stop Dark Magic Circle when a dark magician is summoned on the field.?

because it negates the ACTIVATION, not Spell/Trap card's effects when they are already on the field.

You can use this to negate the activation of DMC

If it is a continuous effect it doesn't actually activate, and therefore cannot be responded by this card.

Even though it can negate traps and spells

fourth possibility:
- opponent controls Jinzo (even if Counter Traps have the highest Spell Speed in the game, that's only for chaining purpose, monster effects are still able to prevents it from being activated in the first place)

You can get this card from changing SR tickets from duelist event reward. I got 3 SR from that event and changed 2 for these cards... But after that you will need 3 Meltiel cards to build the sanctuary in the sky anti trap deck Lol..

Well one situation was yesterday against fur hires where I tried to use this card to counter wiz's effect but I wasn't prompted to activate this card. Before you ask I'm 100% sure this happened the turn after I initially placed my divine punishment.

Counter Traps won't negate continuous effects of monsters, for example black veloci can't be negated by this.

Thy already did they put it in a damb structure deck
Its lower counterparts are better: Inmato, Cherry Inmato
Yes true. In the first year, this alone is the pillar of Relinquished decks Tier 1 - 2017.
Let us not assume that VRAINs will come next year since we see sales of Komoney by half each pass...
