  • Bans a specific card that you think your opponent may play


  • Requires the copy of the selected card in your hand


  • Useful for banning cards like Sphere Kuriboh, Mirror Wall, Enemy Controller, or any other commonly used cards that you know your opponent will use.
  • Banning spell/trap cards after your opponent already set them on the field will essentially turn it into a dead card.
  • You can use Exchange to take your opponent's card and use it as the cost of using armageddon.

Banish your own Harpie Lady.

Then proceed to lol on your opponent who runs Harpie.

You should try using this card, it is indeed good.
Banish your own Neos Fusion, and most of your duels will be hilarious XD

(Since most people's play depends on it nowadays)

Nowadays, it's "banish your own Cosmic Cyclone/Karma Cut"

Maybe try comboing this with Exchange. Could help against Kaiba or Bakura's E. Con's and Soul Exchanges.

That's not how this card works, if you want to stop a certain card you need to banish the exact same card, not a different card with somewhat similar effect.

But they're using Exchange to take 'the exact same card'?

Oh, I misunderstand what Shiloh said. Yeah, I agree that would work.
I just used this against Amazoness by adding Onslaught to my deck, they set two of them and couldn't play them at all XD

Banishing your own Wiz/Spellbook of Fate/Spellbook Magician/Mask Change is fun too.

Yeah, although you need to tech in cards that are useless for your deck, but combined with Armageddon Designator, they might just be the push you need to make a comeback and win the game.

I wonder if banishing your own Terror Incarnate would prevent the opponent's Terror Incarnate from blowing stuff up.
An interesting tech card, I guess.
Underrated sleeper card, to be honest.

Be careful with this card if you don’t have anything in your hand. It may cause the game to soft-lock. Patch pending.
This card is good If you have the control of the duel and your opponent could have a sphere kuriboh.
I'm going to get this just to shut down all the Relinquished players.
