Can you activate this card withou having any LV monsters? Like activate it and let your opponent draw 2 cards and afterwards there is no more effect? Would be nice exploid for a destruction deck.

Holy crap amazing.
this card is bug on this duel link game. i have played all the other original yugioh game and its work by just discarding the upper level monster. there is one trap card for rainbow dragon same states that can special summon by ignoring the summon condition, and that works in yugioh duel link. But why? both the same but just nerf this for level deck? if special summon from graveyard, all the monster need to be shown on the field before, that mean all the other cards also cnt work right? (darklord, blue eyes and etc)

Keep in mind not all LV monsters, even the highest-stage ones, have summoning conditions, however. There is nothing stopping you discarding a monster like Dark Lucius LV8 or Ultimate Insect LV7 and reviving it with Level Modulation, but it won't work for something like Silent Magician LV8 or Horus LV8.

Sure It's the rules but logically it makes no bloody sense. "Ignores the summoning conditions" must mean the conditions required to summon that card are null and void. Thus summoning Silent Magician LV 8 from the gy or without "proper" summoning first shouldn't logically be a problem, (it should be treated like any monster card summoned from the GY through card effect). How is this rationalised??
Glitch in this card. I summoned silent magician level 8 and it was destroyed, so i used this card but it didnt let me summon iy

Before you state it, yes there WAS an "unofficial" ruling not supported by Konami at one point. There has yet to be a rewrite to the card, a specific ruling, or the specific limit in the card's description. So we go by what the card says unless we get word otherwise.

...Read that Level Down!? ruling I posted like a billion years back. That's all the proof you need, since the two cards work identically.

They don't need to give a specific ruling for every card in existence. Many cards work the same as other cards, and this ruling is consistent with every single card that ignores Summoning conditions except Timaeus the Knight of Destiny for some stupid reason.

To further back up my point... Almost every single card that Summons a monster from the Graveyard ignoring Summoning conditions has a ruling to the same effect, including Assault Revival, Double Hero Attack, Gottoms' Second Call, Infinite Light, Malefic Divide and Rainbow Gravity.

It's just how these effects work.

Dark Flattop, which has a similar "ignoring summoning condition" revival effect, was even clarified in a public forum post by a Konami staff, who stated it cannot revive the Nomi monster Flying Fortress SKY FIRE unless SKY FIRE has been Special Summoned properly first.
some smuck
Here's why it didn't work

1: In order to special summon it, it has to be properly sent to the graveyard from the field, either by battle or card effect. You can't just res it from milling it or sending it from your hand. Which means unless you properly summoned it the first time then you aren't getting it back

"1" implies there's a "2", so where's the "2" lol

There is no official ruling on this. This card, like "Level Up," specifically states "ignoring summoning conditions." There was a ruling on Level Modulation, but it has been deemed unofficial and unsupported by Konami. If it's not stated on the card, there is no card rewrite, and the rule book doesn't state it, then you follow the card's text.

However, if there is a card with similar effect, and it HAS the ruling, then you follow that ruling.

In this card's case, yes, there are cards with similar effect that has ruling stating the Nomi/Semi-Nomi monster has to be Special Summoned properly first before they can be revived from the Graveyard.
This card is busted. Sent Armed Dragon Lv10 from hand to the graveyard and I couldn't activate this.

Why ignore summoning condition on "Level Up" work and "Level Modulation" didn't work in the same way, it can only work if we already summon that monster on the field first, they should fix this card text so no one get confuse...

That's just how ignoring Summoning Conditions works. It's a game mechanic, it's not unique to Level Modulation.
This card is BUGGED you can only use it twice per duel, the third copy won't do anything at all.
Wtf man I made a deck with dark magician silent and I discarded him and then I could activate this card

needs to leave from field, (glitch) but that's how it works, whatever you are trying to summon from GY, has to have left from field, not hand or deck
An "LV" monster that normally cannot be Special Summoned except by the method in its text CANNOT be Special Summoned from the Graveyard with "Level Modulation" unless it has been previously Special Summoned by the correct procedure. The "ignore the Summoning conditions" text allows for these monsters to be Special Summoned only after they have been properly Summoned by their own effect. This applies to "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8", "Armed Dragon LV7", "Silent Swordsman LV7", "Silent Magician LV8", and "Winged Kuriboh LV10".

even if u use level up, u can summon them back, the only CONDITION is, whatever you are trying to summon from GY, have left from field, not hand or deck, i have succesfully summoned horus, 8 with level up, and then 6 from GY with modulation

You can search for a different Imp than the one you return. As to why the Skill doesn´t let...
The effects kinda confusing even for expert players but it's basically banish 2, draw 3. Bet...
Who dares to make a joke about the 2nd handsomest Yugioh character?
No, Scud is the 2nd handsomest. Nice pick too.
