  • Banishing your monster will protect it from getting destroyed, or targeted by your opponent.
  • Special summoning monsters will enable certain effects that trigger when monsters are special summoned.
  • Special summoning the monster will allow you to summon them in either attack or defense position instead of previous position.


  • Your monster can only be special summoned when the card is sent to the graveyard, through its effect activation, or if it's destroyed and sent to the graveyard.
  • This card can be cancelled if it's destroyed before banishing your monster. Like if your opponent (or you) chains their Twister to this card's activation.

I saw DG special summon Toon Summoner Skull... isn't it this is invalid!? Opponent does not hold Toon World, but DG still allow the banished Toon Summoner Skull special summon to opponent field, wield... any thought?

Is dg not working with fusion monster? I summon it properly with polymerization, when my opponent barrel dragon target my dark paladin, i use dg, but when my opponent attack directly, my dark paladin didn't special summon, but my dg sent to graveyard

dark paladin can't be special summon, if you read the card it says - must be fusion summoned and cannot be special summoned in any other way.

Can anybody explain why my BEUD is not comeback after banish with this card?
Note: i summon BEUD with summoner of illusion effect. And aftet that i use DG to bannish BEUD hope it will gate back. But its not after i destroy face up DG with storm or when my opponent monster declare a direct attack next turn. What exactly happening here? Why DG doesn't work instead of interdimentional transporter?

Think about it! Lets say the rule didn't exist! You set Summoner of Illusion! Summoner gets flipped! Ooops his effect activates! BEUD comes flying out! You use DG to send him away from being destroy! Than you use twister to bring him back! Than Booom a 4,500 attacking monster crushing your opponent into total dust! How Glorious! Who would play any other deck? Everyone would play this deck!

People always ask me about how I know about improper summons. I always tell them haven't you ever heard of the Great Yugioh scandal? Yugioh has been around for long time. Duel Links is basically a new format on an existing game. Their was a rumor that a World Yugioh Champion won his crown by doing an Improper Summoning! Have you ever heard of that?

I don't even know if the story is true! However, it is so funny! They had an article on it several years back. The person on their said the World Champion should have been disqualified! So much hate! It was so funny! Than their was another one with the Raidraptor - Ultimate Falcon combo! The improper summoning of the Ultimate Falcon. It was so hilarious!

The reason those stories are so funny is because the people in those matches were so emotional! Some Yugioh are very extreme. They are very serious people! Oh, man! Thinking about it makes me laugh all over again.
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.

Yep, we faced that combo a lot during the WC2017.
Can this be used to protect my monster from Order to charge and Michizure?

No you cannot protect your monster from Michizure with this. Tested

Michizure activated during Damage Step in which most cards including this cannot be activated.
Sometimes you cannot get back the bannished monster even if it was summoned normally (in this case by sacrifice). Is it a bug or I played vs a cheater? It happened me twice out of 50+ tries in PVP

if your opponent has declared an attack and you just activated DG in response to the already declared attack, then that attack will go through (direct attack). DG effect will activate when your opponent attacks you directly again. So before your opponent declares an attack, DG your monster. Then when the monster atk you directly, DG effect will resolve.

I just had a case where I bannished my monster 2 turns ago, and on direct attack of my opponent I've been prompted to activate DG effect, which I did, the card went to the graveyard and I didn't have the question to get back my bannished monster. I strongly believe some guys are cheating this effect ... Starts to happening a lot.

It's because you can miss timing with this card. It's a complex ruling.

Ur dumb as fuuuu Reply
Dawg don't blame hackers or cheats just cause you suck massive dick at timing or the game itself
Am i missing something? i have a faced up dimension gate(banished dunames in the previous turn), now in my opponent's turn he attacks my sonic bird with a vanilla harpie and then uses Econ to change my bird to defense position, i respond using OTC to kill his other monster and i lose, the vanilla harpie attacks directly and dimension gate never procs, no prompts, nothing.
platinium sr card
Hi i got to platinium without enemy controllers. Now I can choose an sr. Shall I choose enemy controller or dimension gate (only have 1 gate), so that I have 2 gates to help farm kaiba better. Or that will only work well enough with 3? Can you farm him well enough with 2 gates and interdimensional transporter?

i would choose Dimensional Gate. You can use Security Orb to subtitute Econ

And 2x dimension gate is enough for the kaiba farm deck?
Why is this card so good?

Because it save your monster from threat, like relinquished, order to charge, it also can reset position changing cards like econ, kuriboh, windstorm by banishing and return it later. Other use are combo with enemy controller, you tribute take one of opponents monster, banish it and that monster become yours, great versatility.
use this to farm Kaiba lvl 40 with P Bro skill Element Unite he won't attack

1x storm, 1x econ, 2x riryoku field, 1x field spell(don't use, its a storm fodder). Basis is kaiba will crash 2 of his D.D. warrior into sanga and suijin. if he summons a 3rd one, he will crash it, but if you use adhesion trap hole, it will prevent the attack.

Only thing you have to worry is getting 1x Dimension Gate before 3 D.D. warriors, 1x Adhesion trap hole before BEWD, and 2x Riryoku field before 2x econ. During the last turn, if you 1x storm, he should not activate the last econ.

because of this, you NEED 2x-3x dimension gate. without it, you cannot farm level 40 kaiba

Honestly, Labyrinth Builder is more reliable for this anyway. I get 8K from him 90% of the time or more with that variant.
