Use Storm to destroy your opponent's spell/trap along with this card, then special summon your removed from play monster.
Lab Builder deck
This card is a popular choice to add into Lab builder farming decks, as your opponent will not attack you directly with monsters that have 3000 or lower attack when you remove Labyrinth Wall with this card. Allowing you to stall as much as you want.
The only cards or effects that can be activated during the damage step are:
Counter Trap Cards
Spell Speed 2 Cards or Effects that directly affect the Attack or Defense stats of one or more monsters on the field
Remember folks, if your fusion monster isn't properly summoned (aka not by polymerization), it won't come back to field.
I faced someone in duel who used this trap along with Enemy controller to perma-steal my lev 7 monster.
- used e-con, sac'd their monster, pulled mine to their side.
- then triggered dim-gate, sent the monster away
- then used a storm to destroy the dim-gate, once they got the monster back from banishment, it was theirs permanent.
This is actually wrong as it's not how it's stated in the rule. E-con description says "take control until the End Phase", which means no matter where the card travelled, its control should return to its original owner after the EP, anytime it returns and is controlled
i use my Crimson Ninja to get the monster back to my side... to get the ninja on the field i can use the ninjutsu to sacrefice and spawn as many ninjas as possible... Dice Typhoon works too but its possible to deal yourself 1000 damage BUT with luck you destroy the Dimension Gate + another enemie trap/spell card...
