to get this to work, does this have to be in attack mode. i had it in defense mode, face down, my opponent had 1 serpent night dragon and one unused spell/trap card face down. when i attacked and this card was sent to the graveyard, nothing happened. only 1 card was in the spell/trap zone and there was no monster effect that made it so that this cards effect would be prevented.

I think it's a bug or it does have to be face-up in order to activate it's effect

Has to be attacked by your opponent
The card would be OP at level 4, y'all.

I'm genuinely getting a kick out of it. The computer almost always attacks it but humans rarely do.

A level five that gives me 2+ turns of stalling? Yeah, I'll run one for the lolz.

Even if you wanted to do that, you could run a better card like Amazoness Queen or Lightray Madoor.
Looks pretty good. Until you realise it's level 5.

Well, combine it with assault dog and the level won't matter as much.

Think again. You need to tribute 1 monster, tribute summon (2 normal summons = 2 turns), and it needs to be destroyed by battle.

Glifer can be included in dark world/ archfiend decks with no drawbacks. You just have to know the difference of discard as cost and discard as effect.
Cuff me daddy dragon
Yeah, back when this card first showed up in OCG/TCG, many people stated this card would have been actually usable if it was Level 4 instead.
cyberdark doesnt like this
lv 4 and this would change the game.
would be decent if it was lv4
Quite an interesting effect if you ask me.
