  • Protects your monsters from battle destruction.
  • Protects your monsters from opponent card effects.


  • It only works with specific kinds of monsters.
  • Negates your monsters’ effects


  • Boost a DARK Spellcaster monster’s attack so it can be protected by Black Illusion.


With Necrovalley active most Gravekeeper monsters can be protected by Black Illusion.

DARK Spellcaster

Here are some of the better monsters you can use Black Illusion with. Dark Magician and similar Normal monsters are not affected by the effect negation.




Monster/Spell/Trap categoriesUnaffected by Monster Cards / Unaffected by Spell Cards / Unaffected by Trap Cards / Negates the effects of your Effect Monsters
Attack categoriesCannot be destroyed by battle


To protect important monsters (like Dark Cavalry), I still prefer Forbidden Lance because of its speed and versatility. Not seldom, 800 ATK make the difference between you losing your monster or your opponent losing his whereas Black Illusion would just protect your monster one round but not destroy the enemy monster with more ATK.

Yep, just like the recently revealed Madolche Promenade card for OCG/TCG.

It would have been far more useful as a Spell instead of a slow Trap card.....

It´s sad to hear nowadays that trap cards are way too slow for competitive play. Barely none of the top decks at TCG in recent years had even one of them. Only way to change players´ minds was to start making traps you can activate from your hand.

Let´s try to enjoy these cards while we still can! Even though it´s a trap card, it makes DM immune to other cards effects. Give it a chance at least.
Amazing card.
Finally some damn support
