Recover Life Points
By using these cards, you can recover the Life Points that you lost from using Mausoleum of the Emperor. You can gain 2000 Life Points from Supremacy Berry if you have less Life Points than your opponent. While you can gain Life points equal to the attack of the monster that is destroyed by Guardian Angel Joan.
Search from deck
You can immediately get Mausoleum of the Emperor from your deck by using Planet Pathfinder's effect. While you can draw it on your next turn by flipping face-up An Owl of Luck.
Prevent opponent from using its effect
Prevent your opponent from using Mausoleum of the Emperor's effect by returning it to your hand after using it. Use cards such as Gravelstorm and Murmur of the Forest.

You may already know this, but this card and many others can be found in the Card Trader's "Regular Inventory" (The section that has a blank Normal Monster, Trap and Spell card as its cover). You can only get 1 a day, but as long as you have the cash and SR Stones, you are set.
Can you use this card to summon either Slifer or the Tormentor with this card? I swear I used it to summon Slifer once with it but have not been able to do so since.
Its true, its not a "Tribute" just a card effect, you click "activate skill" and nothing...
played with a mausoleum deck that was really fun!! would replace one of my barrel dragon with another ancient gear golem when I get it.
I'm thinking whether should I take away my econ for another supremacy berry. but it works really well with Fenghuang
your deck makes no sense. At this point just use 3 star demo, and take out useless mausoleum.
If you play ddraw, you must play more "1x" to tutor.
Well, the trick is to have the darkness buff skill of yami yugi field... and summon dark magician of chaos by this effect card with and then, in the same end phase, return the field card and pray for no autokill for an opponent summon by that card. im new to this game so if u have better idea, tell me pls.
I don't understand why life cost zero doesn't work. If I have cyber stein set for a turn, then flip summon him, activate life cost zero, I HAVE NOT used my normal summon/set for this turn. Yet this card still cannot be activated. Also, the card says specifically "this is not a tribute summon" therefore it is a card effect. No one seems to be sure according to both skill and card definitions why this isn't working
