Evaluation

Rating7.0 / 10

Pros

  • Useful if you perform a tribute summon, to stop opponent monsters effects and opponents traps from activating.
  • Easy to use because its a quick-play card.

Cons

Only works if you tribute summon, special summons do not count.

Tips

Together with Champion's Vigilance will make your high leveled monster cards get control of what your opponent can do.

True, but CV can't negate effect activation, so that's something at least.

Mausoleum of the Emperor considered normal summon,

So, this card wont work right ?
Guess, i gotta give it a try.

Correct: Mausoleum won't work because the monster has to be tribute summoned.

I keep getting a glitch where my Overwhelm won't trigger when I have a lvl 7 face up that I tribute summoned. Any idea why?

Tribute Doll specifically says it's a special summon... Learn to read my man.

you need to set first your overwhelm and wait for your opponents turn before it can be activate, and make sure that you already switch your kazejin into face up attack pos. hopes this help

So this happens, i tribute summon BEWD using bubonic vermin flip summon. Then i added overwhelm to my back row.i waited for almost 2 turns for overwhelm to be active since it doesnt work on my enemy's security orb then after 2 turns my BEWD was destroyed by michezure hence i got overwhelm.lol

Did you Flip Summon Bubonic or the Blue Eyes? If you flip summoned Blue Eyes then he was originally Tribute Set and never Tribute Summoned...

works perfectly if you dont have CV yet, can work with stray lambs tribute set or cost down. you just need to make sure that you set first overwhelm and wait for your opponents turn or your next turn. and make sure to switch first your 7* up monster into a faceup atk pos if you used stray lambs.

I used Kieser Seahorse to get BEWD and my overwhelm did not work against any traps or effects. Help?

What if monster was summoned with cost down, it wouldn't work the same turn but what about the later turns?

it works later turns

lot of you people are most likey setting the trap and attacking on the same turn, wont work.
Question though, will this work on the effect of the elemental gods? Suijin, etc.

This one applies to monster effects, which champion's vigilance can't do. It can also be painful to farm kaiba for it. Otherwise, though, it's better than overwhelm.

this card has not been working for me. i would use stray lambs to summon my kazejin or suijin or blue eyes and it would not work for me. same with kazejin effect some times. i think the game still has bugs.

Then stop Tribute SETTING & start Tribute SUMMONING? :/

Your poor grammer and spelling hurts my eyes
Cons: "Can't be used the turn it was set" That applies to all trap cards..
If only it's effect also carried onto the battle phase even for a turn... it would be UR mat...
