I have not seen this explained yet. To use Tribute doll to special summon level 7 in same turn do this.

Set Tribute doll first in the magic zone, then summon a normal monster level 1-4. You can now activate Tribute doll, and you tribute the normal monster you summoned to special summon your level 7. MAKES A GREAT OPENING MOVE!!!

ALSO, This level 7 cannot attack this turn, BUT, special effects can still be activated.

EXAMPLE, I use this to special summon with double barrel dragon and activate the effect to destroy opponents monster same turn.

I'm having trouble with Tribute Doll as well. Used Regretful Rebirth on my Blue Dragon Summoner and I couldn't activate it. Couldn't even activate it on monsters I normal summoned in the same turn.

This card is very buggy from my experience. Like Cry Havoc, you should be able to both normal summon in addition to using tribute doll according to its description. For example, you should be able to summon Feral Imp and then use Tribute Doll to summon Dark Magician in the same turn. I've seen CPUs use it. However, I'm unable to even activate this card.

Btw, message to mods: Is there a way to create an account on this website? I find myself commenting on much of it. I'm part of where I do research for Pokemon Go. Would like to be part of this website as well if possible. Thanks.

weird, i have been using this spell for long, i never had this bug. i can normal summon and immediately use tribute doll to special summon any 7 star monster. according to ur example, you summon feral imp and tried to use tribute doll so summon dark magician, in that case: 1. do u have dark magician in ur hand? 2. you didnt use scapegoat on that turn right?

Yeah I had Dark Magician in my hand. I did not use any other spells and traps during that turn. I'm not sure why. I'm on iOS

I thought so as well, but then how come the computer always summons a monster and THEN uses that in the same turn? Must be a bug of some sort
