I have literally tried to use this to summon a Blue Eyes White Dragon 3 duels in a row and it would not let me. No other cards on the field to prevent it

let me guess, you tried to do it on turn 1 while also using a skill that prevents special summon on turn 1?

*oops, slight correction:

let me guess, you tried to do it on your first while also using a skill that prevents special summon until the end of your first turn's Main Phase?

IF BEWD perform well in the next KC Cup then this card could be a limit 2 along with Sage. Reasons? Because they will always limit free card first. Look at what happen to Crystron & Shiranui and you will know that nothing is impossible.

Good BEWD decks don’t use, or even need this card these days.
In the ancient rules of duel monsters, you could summon a high level monster by paying life points alongside with your KA

no tributes required
Why cant I use this on dark magician girl? For some reason it doesn't let me

It ain't a normal monster, it's an effect monster.

Dark Magician Girl has an effect, so it can’t be summoned with ancient rules. You could summon Dark Magician with it, though.
Useful in plenty of meme decks :D
Good to see this card added as a ranked ticket reward :)
This is going to get limited in a few months, once they 🔥 off Blue-Eyes new swag.

Makes things way too easy having 3 of them (along with the other stuff we have now). Mind you we'll have months to abuse it.

Masked heroes were in the top for 7 months now and remained almost untouched, the Blue-eyes came out less than a month ago and you already want to remove them?
I wonder what you play if you lose the vanilla monster

Anonymous Reply this card will never get limited, especially not because of Blue-Eyes.

They have a card that SS Blue-Eyes directly from deck.....

It was for past R tickets. I don't think any of the current R tickets give it.

Dude chill it's not that serious. I don't get why there's always someone in the comments of these card pages relying with some unnecessary b.s.
