Surprise Present (skill)

Duel Links Breaking News
Banlist update has been announced!
update 07/04/2017

Overview

Giving your opponent a spell or trap card will make their field smaller for other cards. If you give them a card with a surprising negative effect like Card of Sanctity, they might lose the duel just by activating that.

Description

Select 1 card Set in your Spell & Trap Zone, and force it on your opponent. Only the player that activates this skill can view this card. This skill can only be used once per Duel.

Rating and explanation

If you don’t force your opponent to use that card, they can simply choose not to activate it. It is not a competitive skill because it is limited to only one activation per duel, so even if you build a deck around it, it is not guaranteed that you will manage to take good advantage out of it.

Hello :)
My surprise present would be lucky punch(which is a continuous trap) and if they take damage and get 3 tails, I’d win

I thought of that. However, if Lucky Punch gets destroyed, it appears damage gets dealt to the owner of the card and not the controller. So, if the opponent gets three heads, or you destroy the card through other means, your opponent wins even though the card is being played on their side of the field. You might have a better chance of trying to deck out your opponent with Lucky Punch though, mayb

It's an all right skill, though definitely easy for the opponent to overcome by simply not playing the card -- they have to be forced.

My favorite way to do it is with Sergeant Electro by disabling any other set spell/trap cards they have. Then my favorite card to surprise present is Destructive Draw; it is a continuous trap (so permanently occupies their space) that will deal them 700 damage each of their end phases and if they somehow get rid of it, they take 3000 damage. In addition, you will also get the benefit of its perk which is allowing you two draw two cards in your draw phase if you don't have any cards in your hand -- very useful. Granted, if the opponent gets rid of it while it's still set... well... darn. Lol. Though, still a great strategy for burn decks.

Lol good idea. I wonder if I force 'Solemn Scolding' on them, can they actually suicide with it (if they opened it while below 3000hp)? Or does the game simply not allow them to?

player can't activate this card if his/her life points is less than the cost

Its actually a decent effect, especially if you play defensibly. If your opponent sets 2 cards just set a card. usually they'll have some defensive cards like Mirror wall, WallOfD, Spike W/Chain, maybe a continuous spell card ect. (or even if they activate a equip spell, but thats rare enough)

I built a 'gift' deck Using Gift Exchange and Card exchange, its really fun to play as. Its pretty good against certain meta decks If played right.

The card I like to give isn't "Aegis of Gaia", its good, But I like "Localized Tornado" Because its a trap card, they will remind them to use it I find more people fall under the pressure using it more that way.

Give a card with a specific activation con + Zing zen Hu = no backrow for opponent.

You might be able to force a straight flush with this. Can't see it being used any other way right now.

what if i give them a trap that can only be activated in a certain condition?

I hope to combine this with Aegis of Gaia + bad reaction to simochi. How can I force them to active a trap though?

If your opponent needs that spell/trap slot they'll have to activate it (pumpkin/wonder ballons/OdionTraps decks). Good thing is they can't see under the card. Only you know what is the card.

You can olso give your opponent cards that are only activate their effect when destroyed. So you make one of your opponent's spell/trap zone useless and not yours until you storm everything. Also the oppenent my destroy them to free his zone. But it is still only once per duel.

That is a good idea! I am working on a Deck Out deck where I give my opponent a card that allows them too draw cards, which of course benefits me

Using this with Aegis of Gaia is just silly

Bait Dolll forces the activation of a face-down trap, then returns to your deck. It would be broken in Duel Links.

Can this skill still be used for farming? It seems like the AI doesn't activate it anymore?

Totally useless skill is competitive but if you just play for fun try to give yourself opponent ´card of sanctionary'
Managed to do the trick against a brain dead mai valatine.

Even with the Beatdown nerf, it seems like Fur Hire will still be a top tier deck. Though it does...
will 2nd year anniversary campaign or event bring Obelisk the Tormentor to duel links ?
Sorry sir please explain your point again
