Pros

  • Can negate any card effect.
  • Destroys the negated card.

Cons

  • Needs to discard same type of card to negate an effect, making this somewhat situational.

Tips

Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord

When you negate an effect with Ultimate Providence, you can Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord special summoned special summoned from your hand and depending on what you negate he activates a different effect. And since Ultimate Providence can negate any card effect, you can choose what to negate and have Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord gain a specific effect.

Bountiful Artemis

Having Bountiful Artemis Face-up when you use counter traps allows you to draw a card. This will help you recover from the cost of using Ultimate Providence.

A Cat of Ill Omens

You can use A Cat of Ill Omen to search this card and put it at the top of your deck.

Solemn Judgement is bad?

I think he meant "banned" and yeah I agree solemn judgement would break the game

I was playing against a deck that had this card. I had Koa'ki Meiru Sandman on the field, but I was not given an option to negate Ultimate Providence effect. Any reason why that would be?

What the hell are you talking about?
How does it miss timing when it couldn't even be activated?
I guess u don't understand the concept of spell speed as well.

Well you can't negate a card unless it finishes its cost, then it has another effect. So its two effects but one at a time.

it's not even about missing the timing, also cost is not an effect

it's simply because monster effect has a lower Speed Spell than counter trap

You cannot negate counter traps except with another counter trap.

I have a question. Would Ultimate Providence negate Jinzo's effect or would Jinzo still be unaffected?

jinzo locks up, up only can negate activated effect (jinzo's is not)

Jinzo makes it so you cant even play the card. Just like how the presence of Invader of Darkness make it so your opponent can't even play quick-spell cards.

And if you can't play it you can't do 🔥 all.

Only trap cards that should work against Jinzo are CV and Solemn as they negate the summon.

It doesn't negate on summon, and jinzo's effect is a continuous one, not an activated one. So you can't use this against Jinzo

I think this card is bugged. I've got two in my deck and whenever the opponent uses a spell or trap card literally nothing happens. I don't get a prompt or anything to use it.

Do you have a spell or trap card in your hand? You need to discard the same type that you're trying to negate

You need to have the cards in your hand not in deck to trigger the prompt

I was playing against a guy that had this card set in his backrow and i had forbidden lance in my hand and it was my turn. He activated ultimate providence to negate and destory a monster i had but i didnt get a prompt to actiavte my forbidden lance not sure why that happened does anybody know why?

Because this card is Counter Trap. Forbidden Lance is Quick Spell, which is slower. You can only chain it by another Counter Trap.

Amanda Reply
Unfortunately, your Lance cannot protect your monster! That's due to something called "spell speed " Since UP is a Counter trap, no cards can be activated in response except for another Counter trap!

how can neos fusion effect to prevent destruction react to ultimate providence?
<< Anonymous(timelord1978)
Anonymous Reply
Destruction substitution effects don't activate/start chains, you just choose to apply them instead of destroying the card
<< Anonymous(timelord1978)

Neos fusion secondary effect skip activation phase and straight went into effect. Thats why any activation negation doesn't affect it. Card like Necrovalley or Anubis however disable the effect since it was negating the effect not preventing the activation.
