Divine Punishment

Divine Punishment
TypeTrap Card
Card Effect TypeActivation requirement / Card effect


Activate only if "The Sanctuary in the Sky" is face-up on the field. Negate the activation of a Spell Card, Trap Card, or Effect Monster's effect, and destroy that card.

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


  • 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.


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.

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

Thank you for the clarification.
I wonder if Konami would add Herald of Perfection in the game. Broken? Not? We'll see
looks like Parshat stuff
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...
This card is bugged. It says negate monster effect. Well monster used an effect and I couldn't negate it

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

Just because a card is searchable doesn’t make it good. Parsath Sanctuary is by far a much better card

Well yeah, but it makes sanctuary in the sky way more usable in the deck. You can't count on drawing parshath sanctuary to use it with the other cards in interacts with.

Either way I think we all can agree on one thing: the OP is the brainless one here. This card is nowhere near broken.

I can't activate this card to negate wall of disruption during battle phase.
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..
Is this cars bugged rn? I'm getting into alot of situations where i dont get the prompt to activate this card when i should be able to

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.
2 copies of these bad boys. Any ideas for a deck out of these card would be appreciated. Looking for a way to create an anti fur hire anti masked hero deck.

Yep, it's a cool card but sanctuary in the sky is not a very consistent deck right now. If your field dies this counter becomes useless, no field protection.

field protection might support this card in the future
