I’m pissed as 🔥. Date is 11/30/19.

Fusion substitute monsters no longer work with this card.

Gigantic stealth nerf, making this card absolutely pointless

Absolutely livid right now

Know the spell that adds 1 "Buster Blader" from your deck or graveyard to your hand? You need that to make this card here work well now.

From what I see because destruction fusion and red eyes fusion says a fusion monster that lists BB or REBD the ruling force you to use the original materials instead of a sub. Still makes little sense but okay.
The META has diversity because:

We have Electromagnets.
We have Six Samurais.
We have Blue-eyes
We have Red-eyes
We have Neos Fusion
We have Koa'ki Meiru
We have Survival's End
We have TRIAMIDS (F2P and can climb in DAY 1)
We have Dark Magician
We have Mermails
We have Subterrors
We have Ancient Gears
We have Crystrons
We have Cyber Dragon Beatdown + King of the Swamp
We have Gem Knights

You seriously going to list Koaki Meiru when Konami themselves admitted they have trouble winning games?
wow I can't believe a single change of ruling can make a deck from annoying top tier to top trash.

You should probably take a read of his face-up Trap Cards.

Limited to 1
It stole my monster to fusion summon BB and then recover it from GY to steal another monster for second BB fusion. Ban this please!
I don't see any reason for this card to not be limited.
Cant chain the floodgate when the fusion monster hit the field. WTF? Absolutely broken.

The Summon has to be the last thing to happen for Floodgate Trap Hole to be activated. They likely chained Fusion to something.
This card makes last Mini Box totally worth getting... omg, what a power breaker ._. so tilty
