  • Can also target your own monsters.
  • Banishing prevents certain monsters from activating in the graveyard.


  • Needs to discard a card to use.
  • Can only target face-up monsters.


  • This card is useful against monster that activates it’s effect when sent to the graveyard such as Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem to prevent Ancient Gear Golem being summoned from Graveyard by Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem’s Effect.

Escape form the Dark Dimension, Release from Stone & Spiritual Light Art - Hijiri

Banishing a monster can prevent them from being re-used like Red-Eyes Spirit for a Red-Eyes monster, but targeting your own can also be beneficial if you use cards that can special summon them. They are usually specific to certain deck types but can provide more versatility in certain situations.

Powerful Rebirth , Skill Successor , Bacon Saver & Destiny HERO - Dasher

Since the cost to discard can be any card, this gives plenty of opportunities for different deck types that benefit from being sent to the graveyard.

This is the anti-Yubel Terror Incarnate card for the mirror match to prevent your opponent endlessly reviving theirs.
That's just a bad copy of tribute to the doomed. The Monster has to be face-up. Get the hell out of my face you trash card

UR and SR rarity is the huge difference kiddo. 26 packs left in Dawn of Destiny still no Tribute to the Doomed. Meanwhile already have Dark Core x 2 after resetting two times new box.

I kinda like it in my REZ deck, enough cards I don't mind discarding to the grave I.E REZ, Bacon, REW
why Bad? This is the only card i like in this box.

Each card/deck has it GOOD & BAD side. This card is good using it on Phoenix, Necrofear, ojama king...etc.

Potential use in an archfiend deck perhaps?
Banish dakini and her friend
good at hurdling high atk monsters. dey usually not facedown
Good card when you have alot of card in hand but will screw you so hard in mid battle when this card is the only card in hand.

I believe this card is good against a lot of meta deck.

But I might be wrong, lol.

this card is bad the monster has to be face up lol gb turn 1 rapes u if they set first which is the optimal play of a turn 1 gb player. at least tribute to the doomed can be face up or down
this doesnt work with darkworlds right ?

While it can be more powerful than Tribute to the Doomed, it also more situational since it can only target face-up monsters. TTTD is more universal.
a tournament tech card in a side deck.

I hope they add more worlds to duel links that would be cool
fabled, any light deck, use your imagination...
I got it pretty early in the box, pulled about 2 UR every 10 packs too.
konami are killing the game off on purpose, they wanna start from scratch and have people buy all...
