  • Prevents a monster from attacking.

The downside of floodgate is you have to use it when the target is summoned, where as chains you can trigger whenever.

You can Tribute this card; Special Summon 1 "Noble Knight" monster from your Deck.....

The text before ; is the COST you pay to activate an EFFECT. A COST is not considered an effect so it can't be negated.

Merlin tributed itself as cost and went to the gy, fiendish was no longer attached to it so the effect resolved.

It's a cost in name only.

A cost is only truly a cost if there is no advantage in performing said cost, aside from the effect that results from paying the cost.

The moment we can use cost to set up our graveyard for a myriad of graveyard effects, cost stopped being a cost. It's now cost in name only.

You are pretty interesting, I imagine you're the life and soul of the party.

Still cope. Decks that have cards that directly activate when discarded as a cost are a minority, and as for decks that have cards with graveyard effects, that only works if 100% of the deck has a graveyard effect. I beat so many tryhards discarding all their blue eyes without having any follow ups and running out of resources. Bricks will happen, so discarding is a potential issue pretty much alw
How can this card be a- while floodgate is b+
People prefer Karma Cut over this card after the death of Shiranui, Crystron & Karakuri.

Doesn't matter. I will set my backrows next turn. Next turn.

Thanks for not using Cosmic Cyclone instead.
By far the best trap card in the game. Overtook Floodgate. Just wish it was more accessible.

Floodgate works on monsters that cannot be targeted -like Cocytus and Sabre Dancer-, Fiendish doesn't. So I doubt it takes Floodgate's place but almost as good as it

"Any top tier deck still using normal monster?"
Not top tier, but still widely used: DM, Blue Eyes.
I don't know why you mentioned about normal monster, since Fiendish Chain cannot be used to them.

DM & BEWD are used by fanboys only. You need fiendish chain badly to stop Citree, 177 Merchant, Gozuki, Raikiri....

Best trap card in the game along with Floodgate. Negating those broken monster effect is just too useful in the current meta.

the problem that it not only negates but stops attacking.still unfair like those monsters.
every day that passes I feel like this cards is less good
This card is broken. My dragon spirit of white has stopped being treated as a blue eyes after fiendish chain is used on it. I could no longer synchro with dragon spirit of white, because the cards text of (this card is always treated as a blue eys monster) was treated as an effect instead of a statement of fact. Thus that "effect" was nullified by fiendish chain.

Yes, you have to distinguish between effects and Name conditions. And there are only very few cards that have a name condition:

(PS: This is similar to Archetype condition which are non-effects too)

Yeah, "changes own name" is not the same as "name condition". The former is an effect, the latter is not.

Here's a list of all cards that changes own name. For future reference, use Yugipedia, don't use Yugioh Fandom anymore.

There isn't really a difference between yugipedia and yugioh fandom though. Both sites cover all cards.

That guy is probably a Yugipedia contributor and he wants to promote it. But seriously, both are equally good.
