Rating7.5 /10


  • Clears the entire field, possibly turning the duel around when going against difficult enemy.


  • Low attack when not a lot of cards on the field.
  • Leaves you open after your attack.

Tips, related cards, skills

  • Paying the Life Points will enable draw skills like “Draw Sense” or “Destiny Draw” for your next turn.
  • Recommended to use when your opponent’s LP is low enough to be killed from the attack.
  • Cost Down to reduce the amount of sacrifice needed for tribute which can be good to increase attack if you have more than 1 monsters.
  • Gandora can be tribute set on the field and changed to face up defense position using Desert Sunlight which will not be considered as normal, flip or special summoned so it will not be destroyed in the end phase of that turn.

Cost Down

Guy just summoned it... had 1800 attack points. Destroyed 6 cards so (300x6 = 1800). Hit me for 3,600... am I missing something? Bug or just misunderstanding the card?

Why does this card gain atk points every turn? There's nothing in the description and there were no other cards on the field thanks to my opponent clearing the field with it's effect.

The only thing I can think of is that they banished their own cards.

So Access Denied stops this card from destroying itself..possible bug?

That's a feature---not a bug. Access Denied prevents monster effects from activating, but does not negate them. Since Gandora's effect which sends itself to the Graveyard is considered an activated effect, it doesn't get sent, so remains on the field.

That's not how this card works. You pay half your current LP, not 2000 LP. So if you had 4000 LP, first you would pay 2000 LP to Summon it with Masoleum of the Emperor, then you would pay 1000 LP to activate this card's effect.

The max atk is 3900 by destroying 13 cards. 7 on your opponent's side and 6 on your own. 13x300 = 3900

Wrong cards like raigeki will power gandora up for the whole turn so if you for example if you throw out wattail dragon and use gift of the maytr then you will have gandora at 2.5k attack plus idk 5 other cards between you and your opponent annnnnd boom 4k and you can maytr away stronger cards for more attack or more than one card

But if you summon this card, by an another way.. protecting him with "Half Shut" and in your turn just turn him to attack position, he become's permanently in your monster zone. So it's a good weapon!! ;)

Currently this card is broken. I can't pay life points in order to summon it. This is BS.

the first thing on the card is "Cannot be Special Summoned", so it has to be normal summoned. The part that talk about paying half of the LP is the cost of the effect "Destroy all the other cards on the field".
