  • High Attack.
  • It can negate any Spell Cards.


  • Defense is not that high for a level 8 monster. Susceptible to level 4 or below monsters with 1900 attack when it's switched to defense position
  • It cannot be Normal Summoned/Set or Special Summoned by other ways besides from the effect of Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV6.


Ultimate Providence

Ultimate Providence can negate Spell, Trap or Monster effect at the cost of discarding the same card type. Since Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8 can negate Spell effects, you can then focus on negating trap and monster effect with this card.

Level Up!

You can Special Summon higher level Horus by using the effect of lower level ones but they are required to destroy a monster to be able to use the Special Summon effect. You'll get rid of this problem by using Level Up!. You can use Level Up! to Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV6 since sending 1 face-up "LV" monster you control to the Graveyard is a cost.

Negate Traps

Use these cards for a lockdown. Seven Tools of the Bandit can negate trap cards at the cost of paying 1000 Life Points. While Xing Zhen Hu and Sergeant Electro have similar effects that can disable the set Spell/Trap of your of your opponent. Mirage Dragon prevents your opponent from activating traps on Battle Phase and The Dragon's Bead can negate and destroy any traps that targets a Dragon-Type monster.

Negate Effect Monsters

You can use these cards to complete your lockdown. Divine Wrath can negate monster's effect at the cost of discarding 1 card from your hand. Dark Ruler Ha Des and Wicked-Breaking Flamberge - Baou has the same effect, they can negate effects of monsters destroyed by battle. While Paladin of White Dragon and Sasuke Samurai can destroy face-down monsters without activating their flip effects.

Why when I negate some spells part of their activation provers still takes place? For example playing against a REZ deck they activated Cards of the red stone, they was able to send a card to the grave then I got to negate and destroy the card. The same thing happened with REZ insight. They was allowed the search but it only got negated after. Can someone explain? Because I thought negate means no chance of a whole activation taking place

Card effects have two stages, the 'cost' and the 'effect'. The cost stage acts before any other cards can be chained to it.

This is the worst card in the pack. Now this is something that actually deserves a 3 or a 4 out of 10, since basically it stops your opponents spells but also locks you out of your own.Poor souls the ones that get this crap.

Hmmm. I'm liking how all of you love to use my username "Naicha" during that one time where I've proposed a descriptive theorizing of classifications of players in duel links according to the perceived past meta. Just want to let you know, my dear trolls, that I may still post a numerous times here in this site, but I don't find the need to use "Naicha" anymore since you're enjoying it too much.

every horus user know they wouldn't attack rashly if enemy has face down spell/trap, only attack if you certain it is safe to do so, or you have a possible countermeasure for certain possible bad scenario.

Pair it with divine wrath and it'll be good to go
Silent Magician has this effect but is easier to summon and has higher attack.

'...Special Summon 1 monster from your hand or Deck that is listed in the sent monster's text, ignoring its Summoning conditions.' Horus Level 4 only has Level 6 in it's card text, so you can only SS Level 6 with 'Level Up!'

A good phoenix deck will destroy anything they put on field,people are thinking that this will be meta xhanging,but not top tiers will still be red eyes.,phoenix,toons,ninja etc.
But some body can make a good deck with this set only if he has money like some of the YouTube's out there

Just think about it bois,if you want to change the meta,you should have 2 copies of each cards
