  • Can only be equipped to a Dinosaur monster.
  • Is a Trap card meaning you have to set it the turn before use.


DNA Surgery

Jurrac Spinos

Jurrac Spinos can special summon a token with 300 attack in attack position to your opponent's field when he destroys a monster your opponent controls. Survival of the Fittest will then give Jurrac Spino an extra attack which you can use to attack the token. With two Survival of the Fittests attached to Jurrac Spino, you can OTK your opponent when attacking the token.

Is this card bugged? I destroyed monsters while it was equipped and the effect never went off.

The monster destroyed by the equipped Dinosaur in battle has to be sent to the Graveyard. If something happens that makes it not in the Graveyard, this card's effect is not applied.

Also, the equipped Dinosaur can only attack again if the opponent still control a monster. Says it right there, "second attack on an opponent's monster".
Yeah dude, drop rate of this card was kinda bad... not that I didnt get the trap. I really did but, it took a while lol... if we wouldn't have had bonus campaign maybe I wouldn't have 3 right now
Terrible drop rate

🔥ly terrible drop rate. I only got 2 and I fought him hundreds of time(no exaggeration)
Darwin's fav card ! Lol !
Unfortunately, this website is wrong. Attaching a survival of the Fittest to a Jurrac Spinos does not give you the desired outcome (something I have experienced first hand). Had to read more carefully. It says ''When it destroys an opponent's monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard: The equipped monster can make a second attack on an opponent's monster in a row.'' The key word here is opponent's MONSTER. A token is not a monster. So yes, I destroyed a monster and send it to the graveyard, summoning a Spinos Token onto opponent's field but I could not use survival of the fittest to attack that token. Sad really, I was so excited for the combo. Also remember that if you use Jurrac Spinos the next turn to destroy the token, again you are not allowed to use Survival of the Fittest (since you didn't destroyed a monster).

A token is a monster. I think you don't get an effect because the monster wasn't sent to the grave. Same thing with Masked Hero Anki destroying a summoned Paleozoic or a vampire retainer that was summoned with it's own effect.

So the token gets destroyed by battle then vanishes from existance and you won't get an effect since it wasn't sent to the grave
Omg I thought it was the MTG enchantment LOL
Will be really good on giant rex since it couldn't attack anyways. Shame it's a trap tho.
