  • Allows you to tribute summon during your opponent’s turn


  • Useless if you do not have any monsters in your hand to tribute into or monsters on the field to tribute.



Tribute summon into something that can destroy your opponent’s cards to disrupt their plays.


This card could be good in a Gravekeeper deck as it allows you to tribute into Gravekeeper’s Oracle during your opponent’s turn. You can do this after your opponent has already completed all their summons for the turn and leave them vulnerable to attacks during your next turn.

Notes :

  • You can use the tribute summon to dodge your opponent’s targeting effect.




Summoning categoriesAllows multiple Normal Summons / Tribute Summon with card effect


This + arrival
3 monster in 2 turn (if you first turn)
So why use this over Arrivalrivals?

and witch raider combo too
Fenghuang+this card. Lets say u summoned a venju or manju on ur first turn and ur opponent sets his backrow up and summons a 1500+ beater... out of no where u play escaltion and summon fenghuang, destroy all of his backrow. Ur opponent has to think twice before setting cards
since it's continuous, the traps can be used to tribute witch raider or as a fuel for parallel twister
use with cards that can be used as two tributes
This is a good card to counter other cards like Nobleman of crossout or special hurricane. Tribute summon a card before it is destroyed/banished.
useful with granmarg. stops certain decks in their tracks
Another cancerous continuous trap
Top parceiro ! Infinitas possibilidades pra destruir BackRow... #FengHuang
