People realize that this can summon level 8+ right? So why is it being compared to 3SD? Both are different

It's the same in some degree. Because if you say it like that you cant compare anything with 3SD even though the card cost 3000 lp and 7 star.
- It's a skill
- Need no card
- Cant use free cost card (if exists) because it's a skill.

You also cant compare Yugi power of dark with field spell which look so silly.

I dont think this will work like 3SD. You can only use that effect for one monster, I think

3SD alters the monster level on hand. Mauseleum just replace tributes needed with LP to NORMAL summon/ SET monster. If you have double summon, you CAN summon two 7/8 star monster IF you have enough LP.
This doesn't work with Life Cost 0, for some reason. Anyone else confirm?

I'm facing this kind of situation too, someone need to pls report this

It's not a bug, this is a situation more similar to the ruling for Star Blast vs Spell Economics mentioned above by another anon.

Mausoleum's effect depends on the amount of LP paid, so you cannot avoid it using Life Cost 0, as the effect cannot be applied otherwise. If you paid 0 LP, you basically do not replace the tribute with any LP.
Here is the price

i'd say most of the SRs in this game aren't very good, at least atm.

I've been f2p since release, playing a bit more than casually (all non-gx characters are lvl 38), and I just broke 2.5m gold and usually hover around 100sr jewels.

Have you bought ANYTHING from the trader?

This is way better than the skill. Sure both players get to use it with is bad but let's look at pros and cons
Pros- doesn't require a card to summon lvl 5-7
1. can't summon lvl 8 plus
2. Requires 3000 life points per activation
3. Reduces the monsters lvl to 4 for the turn( 4 star ladybug)
Masoleum of the emperor
PROS-1. can summon lvl 8+
<< Anonymous(Little kuriboh)

2. Needs a Max of 2k life to summon
3 life point cost scales allowing you to summon lvl 5&6 for cheaper
3 doesn't change lvl so can use things like champion vigilance on turn you summon

1 requires you to have masoleum out to summon
2 weak to s/t removal
LOL. What's even the point of nerfing 3SD if this exist?

just because cards are in the data files doesn't mean they will be released to the players.

Then again. Konami have a nasty habit of nerfing something and then introducing something more OP, ie: nerf switcheroo; introduce 3SD

Because this is a card you need to get into your hand while Demotion is a passive skill that you will always start with.

It's not like 3SD. You can also decide to pay 1K and tribute 1, you have the choice...

EDIT: I thought you could, but I read the effect wrong!
<< Anonymous

Well, you're half right. You can pay just 1K to summon a 5* or 6* monster, whereas 3SD costed you 2K (soon to be 3K).
Does the Card Trader still offer this card? I have been waiting to get my second copy for almost a month, but it has never appeared.

There are two many cards in the rotation... It's frustrating as hell.

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.
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

It's a nice build. Thanks for the idea. I'm missing some cards but it is fun!

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.
This and Rainbow life played the same turn ? Thoughts ? Suggestions? Would it work ...?

Rainbow Life affects damage.

Mausoleum cuts your LP as a cost, not as damage.

Gotcha okay thanks saved me from wasting a ticket
you still can use 3sd plus double summon just paying 3k lp instead of paying 4k for 2 7star summon

'just paying 3k'to run into a ladybug.

The benefit of this card is your monster lvl isn't reduced and you can keep 1k more lifepoints over the skill. Wich is neat because when poison of the old man reaches the game it will be splashed in most of the meta decks.

There's no way old man will make it in the game. They've just placed a restriction on restructure revolution. It seems counterintuitive doesn't it
Can l summon Obelisk with this field spell?

No. It says max 2000
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
The fact it says max 2000 is completely irrelevant (not sure why they printed that except so people stopped asking if you can use it for God Cards). Every card that Tributes 3 or more Tributes for a Tribute Summon either can't be Normal Summoned if you don't (Obelisk is an example of this), or do so to facilitate an effect, and thus won't work with Mausoleum anyway (such as Gilford the Lightning).
