  • 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.

I also wonder why they called another monster Relinquished when its Japanese name is literally Sacrifice.
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.

I was really looking forward to this card. I guess they would most likely make this a UR in the next pack.
Awesome in Exodia's deck

Actually yeah, I've been playing exodia with 2 Sangans and I reached kog with that build 2 months ago. Since the deck focuses on getting the right hand asap I bet it's still pretty much viable.
I have a question.. do monsters with the "?" attack value count or no?

It doesn't count. "?" is not treated as any value.

Also, "?" is treated as 0 only when resolving an "original ATK"-related effect that affects "?" ATK monster that's already on the field. In any other location, "?" is not treated as any value.
Time to bring this beautiful creature back to the game. Need a few copies!

You get your wish, it's gonna be in the next Main Box apparently

Useful in other decks and VERY USEFUL when you use Yubel farm deck farming character roaming events outside GX bruh! Don't underestimate the cute Sangan.
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.
Currently in yami bakura lv40 deck
