Evaluation

Rating9.0/10

Pros

  • It switches the Summoned Monster by your opponent to face-down defense position
  • The affected monster can't change its battle position.

Cons

  • None.

Tips

Monster Zone Lock

You can possibly lock your opponent's monster zone if he/she has no tribute monsters. Use Floodgate Trap Hole when your opponent Summons a Monster. Then disable the 2 remaining zones by using Ojama Knight's effect. You can then wait to get the cards that you needed or burn your opponent.

Rulings

The text "monster(s)" on Floodgate Trap Hole means that it can affect multiple cards. See these screenshots below for example.

The opponent used The Flute of Summoning Dragon to Special Summon 2 Blue-Eyes White Dragon on the field. Then the Floodgate Trap Hole prompt pops up.

Floodgate Trap Hole is Activated.

Both of the Blue-Eyes White Dragon has been switched to face-down defense position.

Somebody knows why this doesn´t work on Kidmodo Dragon´s eff?

If you destroyed Kidmodo by battle, then it is still the damage step, where the only cards that can be activated are ones that change the ATK or DEF of monsters. Floodgate doesn't.

Both is good in their own aspect.

Canadia is flexible whereas Floodgate is good at locking opponent.

Today I beat some whale who has 3 of this cancer, with him having successfully having used all 3 on me during the duel. That felt great. An UR in a large box that's like the second worst of the game, and there are people who have 3... what the hell is wrong with the world. Whoever I see using more than 1 of this, be ready to have one hell of a tilt duel as I will pull the most cancer tactics possible.

If I'm not mistaken:

It has to do with it's "when your opponent summon" timing requirement.

silent magician's eff when destroyed triggers during the damage step, which is why you couldn't use floodgate.

Once Jinzo hits the field, no Trap cards can be activated.

You need a Trap card that negates the summon, not a Trap card that response to a successful summon.

As the other anon said, those "losers" are the ones who finance the game and make F2P players still able to play the game for free. Some of the "whales" are actually good players too.

Implying Konami doesn't have enough money to keep this game going for quite a while as F2P with all the money they've wrung out of people over the years. They aren't EA bad by any means, but they sure are striving to be if the newest ""Metal Gear"" game is anything to go by.

Floodgate doesnt work on sylvan lotuswain

Anything that Rose Lover special summons on the field on the SAME turn the effect resolved will be immune to trap effects. Most likely, your FGT was used on a monster with the above immunity, hence it seems to not work on a specific Sylvan monster.

Why does floodgate not work on monsters summoned by amazones onslaught?

Bug?

It should work as long as Onslaught's effect wasn't chained to something else. If it was, the last thing to happen wasn't a Summon, so you wouldn't be able to use Floodgate Trap Hole.
