It's been a staple card for a long time due to it's versatility. It can simply be used to stop a monster's attack by changing them into defense position. It allows you to take an opponent's monster by tribute one of yours. This can open them up to go for the OTK. It is also a very easy to access card for newer players. You can acquire it from Seto Kaiba as a drop, Ranked SR tickets, or through the bingo event. This card has been put on the semi-limited list. This may clash with decks who already have semi-limited cards since they can only have two cards from the list.

Counter

DeckExplanation
Bujin
Bujin
They run a decent amount of backrow but what they do can turn the tide. You can hit one of their back row that might have stopped your attack from going through. This helps attack over Bujin Yamato their main playmaker.
Archfiend Emperor
Archfiend Emperor
One of the hardest thing to deal with is their ability to special summon
through Call of the Archfiend. This stops them from bringing back their high attack monsters from the graveyard.
Noble Knight
Noble Knight
One of the problems playing against noble knights is that they can bring back their equip cards from the graveyard. Cosmic Cyclone banishes them so they can't come back.
Geargia
Geargia
Geargias are very back row heavy using them to defend their monsters. If you can hit one of them you can possibly attack over their monsters. This leaves them without many options for next turn.
Amazoness
Amazoness
The backbone of the whole deck is Amazoness Onslaught so taking it out can mean an easy victory if they can't get to another. If they haven't activated their Amazoness Onslaught you can attack into one of their monsters and banish it when they activate it. This helps flush it out since most amazoness decks have a good bit of back row.
Masked HERO
Masked HERO
This card is great in general of taking out spells and traps. This can take out a Mask Change either forcing them to chain or let it get destroyed. This can give you the advantage if you have a way to deal with Masked HERO Anki.
Fire Fist Hazy
Fire Fist Hazy
They can pin down your backrow with Fire Formation - Gyokkou stopping you from possibly turning the tide in your favor. Cosmic Cyclone can take out their Fire Formation - Gyokkou allowing you to use that card they pinned.

Hey Trunade!

This card can return any set spell or traps to the hand. This card really shines on turn two when you have no cards on the field an your opponent has set back row. This is because you don't have to worry about them chaining it and destroying your monsters or back row.

Count

DeckExplanation
Bujin
Bujin
This is great to use so you won't have to worry about backrow from stopping you destroying Bujin Yamato their main playmaker.
Geargia
Geargia
Geargia are very reliant on their backrow to protect their monsters but if you Hey, Trunade! aside from Pulse Mines they can't really stop you.
Amazoness
Amazoness
This card returns any set backrow to the hand. While it may not destroy them it can help break throught the board. It can help keep your plays going without the fear of back row disruption. Amazoness relies a lot on traps meaning they have to stay set till the next turn. They can flip it up to keep it from being stalled but should your deck have a way to destroy it you can easily take out possibly their only Amazoness Onslaught they have at the moment.

Floodgate Traphole

This card is great at stopping your opponent's monsters from using effects that don't activate upon summoning. It leaves them stuck in face down defense position until you destroy it or they tribute it off. If you hit the right card you can stop your opponent's plays right in their tracks.

Count

DeckExplanation
Bujin

Archfiend Emperor
Archfiend Emperor
This can stop Archfiend Emperor, the First Lord of Horror from destroying your cards and leave it stuck in
face down defense position with only 2000 defense. This lets you have more time to deal with it. You can also hit Archfiend Empress to stop it from using it's protection effect.
Noble Knight
Noble Knight
This can stop Medraut from special summoning Noble Knight Drystan. This also stops them from equiping it with any equip cards. This stops their plays dead in the tracks.

You can also hit Noble Knight Drystan stopping it from destroying one of your cards and leaving them with no way to protect it either.
Geargia
Geargia
This can stop their main playmakers leaving them in a vulnerable position since they all have low defense. This stops them from using their flip effects to destroy your cards.
Amazoness

If they haven't activated their Amazoness Onslaught you can attack into one of their monsters and banish it when they activate it. This helps flush it out since most amazoness decks have a good bit of back row.
Masked HERO
Masked HERO
This is good to use on Masked HERO Anki to stop them from attacking and getting off the combo. If they don't have another Mask Change they have no way to continue their plays. This also makes Masked HERO Anki easy to attack over since it only has 1400 defense.
Fire Fist Hazy
Fire Fist Hazy
This can be used on Hazy monsters since it doesn't target. You can use this on Hazy Flame Sphynx or Hazy Flame Peryton to prevent their effects from going off. These are their main playmakers, so if they can't use their effects they won't be able to advance their plays. It leaves them vulnerable for you to attack over next turn stopping them from using it as tribute fodder their next turn.

Well timed Floodgate, Treacherous and Chalice are hard counters to furries. Using Sphere Kuribo also helps gainst Trunade being used on both Furries and Anki decks as it screws a lot of enemy OTKs.

Sphere Kuriboh isn't. Most of the time you just gotta survive that turn.

Yeah, half the time it's about leaving their monsters on the field so they can't activate any effects - until you're ready for the KO. In saying that, the aforementioned cards are ideal to prevent special summons in the first place.

Agree. A high available credit balance definitely counters a lot of the meta. I remember losing a past KOG promotion match against a complete Dark World deck the same night the box was released.

Memory loss can be a floodgate substitution, plus you can activate it on monsters that have already been summoned
