Probably one of the best cards in the game right now alongside canadia and drowning mirrorforce.
This one never gets old.
This trap is getting even more popularity due to Gladiator Beasts comeback.

I disagree, floodgate is more for future synchro summoning decks, Vampires, and Blue Eyes :I

I think he meant the card is getting popular in GB because they use it against future synchro shoukan, bats and Burū Aizu decks lol
When your Anki gets Floodgated
:PEPEcry: :Noooooooooooooooooo:
One of the best cards in the game, totally worth getting.
this is a very OLD card but really, reaaaaaaaaally useful :o
ultimate epicness
Can someone tell me why fgth is not working against yubel or his special summoned minion? I see nothing in the txt to stop it otherwise.

You can't use Floodgate Trap Hole in response to an effect activation that would summon a monster. The summon has to be an inherent summon, which you can read about more here:

Are you sure?
I'm fairly convinced I'd used Floodgate on all forms of Yubel many times over the past few weeks.
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.

It's not surprising I resetted ULTIMATE RISING box like 6-7 times when I'm a newbie before. Now, I have lots of Magic Jammer and Balloons that I'm not really using, lol.

The obvious answer would be counter traps.
Or construct your deck in a way that losing one monster doesn't hurt you too much. Simply tribute it for either a higher level monster or with Enemy Controller etc. There's no definitive method other than having counter traps ready, you just gotta use your creativity.
