If this card is sent from the field to the GY: Add 1 monster with 1500 or less ATK from your Deck to your hand, but you cannot activate cards, or the effects of cards, with that name for the rest of this turn. You can only use this effect of "Sangan" once per turn.

  • Searches your deck for a wide variety of monsters.
  • Effect activate when sent from field to the graveyard not only when destroyed.


  • Weak stats.
  • Needs to be sent from the field to activate effect.



  • You can set Sangan and let your opponent destroy him so that during your turn you can use the effect of the monster you searched.
  • Sangan's effect also activates when you use him as tribute for a tribute summon, or ritual summon. But for ritual summon keep in mind he must be on the field first to activate his effect.
  • Sangan's only search restriction is attack points. You can search out a monster with as much Defense, level, and whatever type and attribute you want as long as it falls with the 1500 or lower attack restriction.

Send to the Graveyard

You can use these cards to send Sangan to the graveyard during your opponent's turn so that you can activate the effect of the monster you searched.


Sangan can be used to search out any part of Exodia from your deck. Use him in combination with Emissary of the Afterlife amd Downbeat/Transmodify to quicken the search.

Because Sangan itself is a very powerful search card.
It was even banned back then in the TCG and OCG due to how powerful it was in the original Yu-Gi-Oh archetype
Can Sangan search for Egiptian Gods? 0.o Their attack is below 1500 to be fair

"?" is not even a number to begin with, so no :)

"?" is only treated as 0 when dealing with something that is determined by Original ATK on the FIELD. In any other location, such as in the Deck, an Original ATK of "?" is NOT treated as 0.

Are you sure it's not treated as zero? When experimenting in friend duels I put Cat Sith in defence mode. My friend had Ra on the field he attacked and Ra's attack was reduced to 200. When the turn was over Ra's attack was zero.

Read again, I even put "FIELD" in all caps there....

Your example was on the field, so of course it was treated as 0 when Cat's Ear Tribe's effect expires.

^ I never said that
Hmmmm are exodia would be competitive with 3 of these?
Question: The errata says "Add a 1500 atk or less, but you can't activate effects for the rest of the turn". So how this affect exodia in case of i add Exodia's head having the arms and legs in my hand. I don't win the duel until the next turn or what?

Win conditions can't be negated. If at any point you have all 5 pieces that's it you win
Sangan's new effect in OCG/TCG after errata:

If this card is sent from the field to the GY: Add 1 monster with 1500 or less ATK from your Deck to your hand, but you cannot activate cards, or the effects of cards, with that name for the rest of this turn. You can only use this effect of "Sangan" once per turn.

It's not used by most players even on TCG/OCG now, thanks to the errata

In fact, it's actually the reverse - this card is bad on TCG/OCG, but will still be used in Duel Links since Exodia deck is still a thing in Duel Links.
This will never be added to Duel links cuz its too op with Exordia Decks

It's actually not that great. It's not a Spellcaster so you can't use Wonder Wand and it really doesn't thin your deck. I would use one to replace my Deep Diver but that's it.

Exodia decks alreaddy have amazing draw power with Cards of the Red Stone, Soul Transition and Jar of Greed. Not to mention monsters like Blue Dragon Summoner and Deep Diver. Even Peten the Dark Clown can thin your deck.

It's actually coming lmao, Sangan is the UR for the new Selection Mini Box 01, it just got datamined
I hope konami will launch the legendary card combo for this card on next main box, which is consist of yata-garasu as UR card and Chaos Emperor Dragon as UR card. Because with this card and current YGO DL meta that has monster rebirth. The combo with this card is awesome. it will balance the incoming of "hey, trunade" which is not different with giant trunade.

That lock doesn't even work anymore. Both Sangan and Chaos Emperor Dragon have changed since then, and the changes to both prevent it. That being said, even the weakened Chaos Emperor Dragon is above DL's power level, and so is Yata. Of course, yours was a troll post, but it was a pretty poor one.
Need this and the of nigga forest
