  • Quick-play spell usable during battle phase.
  • Can be used to bypass your opponent's Floodgate Trap Hole by chaining it to your opponent's card during battle phase.


  • Usable only during battle phase.
  • Normal summon instead of special summon.


Useful for catching your opponent off guard by summoning when you attack or attacked. Bronto can increase its attack significantly when gemini summoned, similar to Goggle Golem, and can then be switched back to attack during your turn. The A. Forces is for warrior type deck to increase each of your monsters' attacks. It's important to remember to not chain Arrivalrivals to your opponent's Wall of Disruption since your card will resolve first.

It's ability to normal summon during battle is very useful when used with cards that have effects that will activate when they are normal summoned.

When you enter battle phase, activate Arrivalrivals from your hand first, then chain it with your Anti-Magic Arrows to be able to summon your monster and your opponent will not be able to chain their cards to it.

After watching some random Playmaker video I just noticed ArrivalRivals + escalation of the monarchs + The monarchs awaken + Steelswarms = a great combo only a few noticed.

5 cards combo? Good luck in this second turn otk meta.
This + Ice Princess make a very decent combo.
Very useful in RA farming decks ^^
Can you use this during the damage step?

It doesn't magically make monsters that can't be Normal Summoned Normal Summonable. Not sure why you'd think otherwise.

Nope. Desmanian Devil, Hey, Trunade!, Downbeat, Call of the Archfiend, Showdown of the Secret Sense Scrolls Techniques, Oops!, Mystical Bestiamorph, Metamorphosed Insect Queen and Cocoon of Ultra Evolution are all newer. (From Extreme Force and Legend(ary) Duelist(s) 2.)
great for ra farm decks, instead of double summon. should work with the storm version, but not sure about the arrow version(dont think it works with arrows, since you need to activate them first)

It works. You have to switch the toggle to ON and in the beginning of battle phase activate Arrivalrivals first then AMA
Double summon powercreeped
wait so pretty much able to do normal summons in one turn and it's only a rare?? This card is insane! I'm making a sylvan deck so hopefully I can pick up a few of this too... probably combos with lots of decks like Playmaker's Gravekeeper deck

*able to do 2 normal summons
surprisingly still not as popular as sylvans or even spikeshield.
using this card is like playing ninjutsu transformation and duplication at the same time, and its your choice! (the transformation only for 5 or 6stars monster tho) and yes, you can use it even after your monster battle an opponent monster since it is a quick play.
and if you combo with econ, you can make a soul exchange-like play on enemy turn which is quite busted.

actually you can tribute 2 summons too but might be too slow
This card can summon 5star or above monster?

I googled the ruling for this card, and an experienced Judge says you can.....I'm just going by that.

Still, an in-game test would be nice, and confirm what is Konami's intention with this card. Anyone has this card and willing to test?

I don't think a test is needed. It's very straightforward.

Quick spell can be activated on opp turn. And normal summon = you can summon lvl 5 as long as you have a tribute on field.

It's not about that, it's about using this card on your own turn after you normal summoned a monster.

That's what should be tested.

I see. But the answer is same. You can since it is a quick spell.

Main phase: normal summon lv4

Battle phase: activate this and gain additional normal summon chance >> tribute summon lv5
