  • Locks down up to 2 set spell/trap cards your opponent controls.
  • The cards are not destroyed so they still take up space.


  • The chosen trap can be activated as a chain to flip it up, partly negating this card's effect. Quick-play spells can be used as well.
  • If this card is destroyed, the set spell/trap can be used again.


Use this card before summoning monsters so your opponent can't use the commonly used cards like Windstorm of Etaqua, Enemy Controller or Order to Charge.

Recommended to use this right after your opponent sets down cards so that can't activate set traps right away.

Just another powerful yet underappreciated card that been in the game forever ago. You just need to play better.

maybe he activated the card by mistake
This card is pretty dumb to me, I have three and thought it would work great. It says "The selected Spell or Trap Cards cannot be activated." Which is a lie because righ after I selected two set cards they activated on. Which is beyond dumb. IDC if they are quick play chain or not. It states they can not be activated and literally right after you activate this card they can activate theirs. This card should say activate this card to select two set spell/trap cards your opponent controls. Your opponent must activate them now or will not be able to activate them. Because that's what it really does.

Dude, the chain system is supposed to be interactive: if you opponent activates an effect, you will have a chance to respond, and vice-versa. However, sometimes the chain system is pretty dumb. Example: Cyber Angel Idaten's tributing effect is immediately chained to Dakini's summoning effect, preventing the activation of a Counter Trap to negate Dakini's effect.

Why would I run a Counter Trap if I can't chain it when I need to?

the same applies to sergeant electro, basically, they waste their econs until they have none and then brick them with the card.
So I just combo'd this with straight flush and after the targets were destroyed this card stayed in my trap zone...Doing nothing.

Unless the card says something like "If the card leaves the field, destroy this card", it's going to stay. Then you'll have a dead S/T zone that you'll need to clear with Twister or the like to use. Just like if you Tribute a monster Summoned by Powerful Rebirth.
So I'm using this card against Arkana to block him from using his Dark Renewal on my final pirhanna summon (vs. lvl40), or using his Spell Shield when I try de-spell or Twister against his Ectoplasmer (vs. lvl30).

And I noticed a super interesting glitch -- Sometimes when playing this card, it actually shows me what his face down cards are !

It seems to only happen when I've already seen him play a card that he has multiple copies of. For example see this screenshot, I used a de-spell on his Anti-Magic Arrows, then several turns later use Xing to lock down 2/3 of his remaining face-down cards, and it SHOWS me that he put another Anti-Magic Arrows down, making it easy for me to just pick his other two cards. trolololol.

An... interesting combo glitch, very likely because you already revealed one Anti-Magic & No. Unless it says so like some newer cards do, Xing's lockdown only last as long as it is on the field.

Also just realized I can use Forced Ceasefire instead. Xing can be limiting bc need to pick 2 facedown cards. Ceasefire would simply block all cards, however many are facedown.

I found myself sometimes having to place and block my own card with Xing, if Arkana only had 1 facedown card :P

That's not a bad thing...Anon seemingly talking in place of Andrew, especially if you only have 1 Ceasefire(possible last card dilemma) or no cards you can sac for the Discard. I always have 2; 1st catches whatever 2 cards it can immediately, 2nd locks the 3rd while relocking another. Oh yeah, you can overlap the locks.

If they only have one facedown by the end, then that means you have extra card(s) in your hand.
Dish out your combo.
Set one of your throw away cards for Xing to lockdown.
No harm, just Pr0fit~
You need to be rather careful when using this trap.
The requirement is that you must select 2 set spell/trap cards. It doesn't specify only your opponent's.
So what can happen (if you're not careful) is that if you activate it when your opponent only sets 1, this trap card will force you to select one of your own set spell/trap, effectively locking yourself down as well. Locking down 2 of your opponent's set spell/trap can be rather tricky if your opponent uses them often, before you can wait for them to set 2.
this card is very broken
that moment when you get this card prismatic o3o(or any other card)
This card with Pegasus mind scan is really amazing. You basically know which card there laying down so you can cancel there plans.
I would rate this one higher than wild tornado.
meh, got 2 trap jammers already

Tea Gardner is a very underrated character but if you combine her skill Surprise Present with this card, then your opponent is doomed!
