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.

What monster(s) are you talking about? There could be several reasons why you can't activate it or why it has no effect

The most elusive card to avoid the ban/limited list.

It's because you are the one supposed to dodge that trap hole

Not being banned is a strong point of that card.
It's so expensive to obtain that the price ends up replacing the banlist in limiting its power.

Its sure unhealthy for the game in 3 card slot monster format, canadia is healthier than floodgate cause its doesn't clog and the game became stall

This card is an unhealthy card, yes.

But this card is also one of the few cure against even more unhealthy monsters in the game.

It doesn't work on monsters that are already summoned.
Canadia, Fiendish Chain, etc doesn't have this disadvantage.

10000000000 times better than Void trap hole ... Planning to get third Floodgate than searching for this void 🔥

I currently have 2 floodgate trap holes. Why do you think void is so much worse? I like voids negation of monster effect ability
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
Because void doesnt hit monsters with less than 2000attack and monsters special sumoned by traps/spells. Also it is preferable to let their monster blocked f/d in their field than in their grave. Keep in mind most mosters today have in grave effects and can still be useable

But most importantly, because it doesnt hit normal summons.

Floodgate has a biggest range in what to hit

Although I have 3 of this but this I wish that it will be hit with a limit 3 for a better gameplay experience.

who gets those cards with gems lol, that's what dream tickets are for.

Gems must be spent on old boxes during 50% off deals.

Besides, Old boxes contain MUCH MORE generic not archetype dependent cards than new boxes. In new boxes, except for a few UR/SR per box most other cards don't work outside their own archetype.

Totaly agree with above posts. Tickets should be wisely used on old box staples that usually contain 90% trash cards. Also, NEVER EVER let gem discount period to get away when you despirately need an old staple card. They come rarely and for about 5000 you can open complete a 200 pack main box, and if you are lucky much much less.

Not 90% trash cards because those old boxes contain more generic cards that are usable in any deck + a few staples.

On the contrary, new boxes contain a few staples. Everything else can't be used if you don't play the same deck. Like the recent ones mainly contained supports for Bunjin, Fishes, etc.

How do you expect a BE or SHS deck to make use of that?
Old boxes have more splashable cards

Just wait when link monster arrive, this card along with paleozoic canadia will be useless againts them

Today I beat some whale who has 3 of this 🔥, 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 🔥 tactics possible.

You were doing good there.....until the last sentence. Now it sounds more like you're just salty some players have 3 copies for free, just by using gems.

Salty that they used their hard earned gems for 🔥, yes. But not jealous. I just refuse to use this card.

Nah, not you. There was a post after yours, which I replied to. But now it's gone, deleted by either this site's system or admin, making my reply sounds weird and looks like it's referring to you XD
