  • Protects your monster from being destroyed by card effects.
  • Negates cards that target your monster with card effects, by making your monster unable to be targeted.
  • Can also be used to reduce your opponent’s monster’s ATK.


  • The monster loses 600 ATK.
  • The monster still can be destroyed by battle.


  • This is a good protection card during your Attack Phase, when your opponent attempts to use Enemy Controller or Super Rush Headlong cards to disrupt your attacks.
  • You can reduce your opponent’s monster’s ATK during Battle Phase to enable your monster to destroy it.

Protection Against

That's actually a good idea
Why this card doesn't work to negate enemy controller s efect?

It's all about timing. FD can't prevent target or destruction effects until after resolving. ECON targets before resolving, so FD can't stop it if they're in the same chain. However, chaining FD to cards like SRH can prevent their destruction effects since they don't activate until resolving.

How can a spell still target a card that isnt a proper target? If it cant be targeted, it doesnt matter if it was targeted prior, dress target cant be a target. The spell should fizzle because it would have no target.

Forbidden dress DOES NOT UNTARGET YOUR CARDS, if your monster gets targeted by e-con you see the animation of targeting right? After that it is already too late, chaining dress DOES NOT WORK beacuse your monster is targeted already.....IT DOES NOT UNTARGET YOUR MONSTER
If it’s chained it’s ineffective, if it’s after the fact it’s ineffective. Kinda makes it useless really
This can now work with Black Rose Dragon, but I'm not sure how good that is.

Yeah I was thinking about the same, Sylvans back in the meta after more than 1 year. Crazy
My question is can this card prevent a monster from destroying itself by its effect?

Yes. But take note of destroy itself vs tribute itself.

Someone's salty
this card is infinitely better than forbidden lance, it prevents CARD EFFECTS. This includes spells, traps, and monster effects and you only lose 600 ATK
