Its a skill drop for the paradox brothers. The skill demote all monster in your hand by 3 star by paying 2000 life points. So you can summon any 7 star monster like barrel dragon, joan, dark magician without tribute.

What would be nice is if there were a skill that would actually let you havens fucking main phase 2
I summarized confirmed (by me and this site) common skills drop. Note that i have doubt on the orange one since i didn't found any pic as evidence yet. "No pics = hoax" or so people say.
