  • Removal effect.


  • Requires you to tribute one of your monsters.


Tribute Cost

Tributing a monster can sometimes help that monster activate its effect adding utility to Ballista Squad’s effect. Here are some examples of monsters whose effects trigger when they are tributed.


The main deck Nekroz monsters have effects that activate when they are tributed by a card effect. These effects allow you to gain resources after their tributing.


Tributing some Hieratic monsters allow you to Special Summon a Dragon-type Normal monster. This gives you resources but the monsters will be at 0 ATK and DEF.


is this worth running in a burn deck with cards like amazoness swords woman winged kuriboh and fortress?or needle ceiling worth it?

and if you put in too many handtraps its not good either as u cant hold him off and he will have card advantage on field and in attacks too.
I've seen this card in many different decks. Top tier material.
Any substitutes for this in shiranui?

You can substitute this card with Raigeki Break but I think Ballista Squad has a better synergy ability with Shiranui.

Is there much difference between the two apart from the tribute. Im asking the question because I have 3 raigeki already so don't want to waste the gem if I don't really need it.

This one can help you to get rid of Lava Golem. And you can also tribute a Floodgated card or anything else that clogs your monster zone.

But other than that, both cards are very similar. Raigeki Break even has its own advantages.
Sounds excellent for dealing with lava golem decks!

Agreed and watch they scoop as their backrow is destroyed during the end phase they summon it to your side

Tribute your weakened monster to destroy your opponent's back row or field spell.
Trubute Kidmodo during your opp. Turn
