  • 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.

Boi I wish LV monsters had a skill to make them playable

Yeah, a generic "LV" monster skill would be great. It's one of the worst archetypes and most support cards are just garbage.

Why would someone who hates skills play a game centered on the use of skill instead of playing the normal format where they don't exist

I'd love something like:

You can only use 1 of these per turn

*Reveal 1 LV monster in your hand; add 1 Level up! to your hand from outside your deck.
*Reveal 1 Level up! in your hand; play 1 LV monster from your deck.

Will only activate if your deck contains 8 LV monsters. You can't special summon monsters from deck or extra deck, except LV monsters. You can only normal summon LV monsters

It's a shame konami forgot this gimmick very early in the physical format
To be honest a little bit bull crap but just may be due to the fact I’m playing a E-Hero deck which heavily depends on Magic Card.......

Yeah it’s kinda balance actually if you’re using the ‘right’ deck against it
Why it doesn‘t negate fieldspell?
Angry this does not negate Aroma Garden when it was activated.
Silent Magician has this effect but is easier to summon and has higher attack.

You can use Lv up, because its a cost, not an effect

It DOES work with Horus.. What a NOOB..
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.

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.

I openend 183 packs and still no Horus..
I once had an opponent trying to control my Horus by using Enemy Controller + Forbidden Chalice to negate my Horus' effect. What happened was the following chain: Enemy Controller > Horus Negate > Forbidden Chalice > Horus Negate. LMAO. In their face, Forbidden Chalice does not even work on Horus lv 8, I love this beast.

Someone used riryouku on a heretic dragon and for some reason i was not able to activate horus's ability in the chain...

Was the opponent using Angel 07?
HORUS LV 8 ROCKS! It's almost like if he has the Magic Jammer effect without discarding a monster!
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.
