  • Gives you knowledge of your opponent’s deck.


  • The condition of having 15 cards in the graveyard can be difficult and defeats the original purpose of this card.


  • You can use this card to reset your opponent’s graveyard setup by returning everything back to the deck. Although you will also need 15 or more cards in your graveyard to activate Exchange of Spirit.
  • This card can possibly save you when facing a mill deck.

Ace cards are UR, Ishizu does'nt have an ace monster, and she used this trap in the anime;I belive it have became UR because it could be considered one of her aces.

In the anime it was better than this card. The version we have now, is the errata for it. It made it suck so bad now, it used to be much better and kind of op.
What they should do is replace the tip section with "Don't use this." Neither tip will help you, unless BOTH of you have a low deck count, and even then, Jar of Avarice would be ten times better for you.
The effect of the card is superb ! BUT it's kinda difficult to activate. That's pretty much all needed 2 say

This card is absolutely awful though, how on earth do you expect to ever activate this card?

Needlebug, grass is greener, etc. Good for Exodia too I guess.

quite versatile but the lore seems even more intriguing...

so what happened? there was a normal warrior and then he exchanged his soul/spirit with someone's else?

I dont think theres an actual lore 4 it
I don't understand why this card has A rating value this card working in current decks?

Totally blank with complex explanation...

This. How the heck this card's rating is A-?

Sure the effect is devastating, but it's pointless if you can't even activate it due to the overly restrictive activation requirement.

Makes me question the credibility of the ranks in this site
Neither in deckout own deck this thing is reliable: you need both players which have 15 cards in GY. Lol
Really a great UR reward from konami.

It would be if it didn't have the requirement of having 15+ cards in both players graveyards. Considering that this game has 20 card decks most of the time, I don't see a situation where you would get a chance to use this card.

when you are playing "deck out" decks this card can be used.

Except, if you're playing a deck-out deck, why would you want to refill your opponent's deck, when you could just mill another five cards for the win instead? And why waste time filling your own graveyard, when you could just focus on filling theirs?

Yes... in the TCG, not in the Duel Links format were most decks consist of 20 cards and by the time 15 hit the Graveyard the Duel its over a long time ago
Sadly this doesn't translate to tgc well. Since 15 cards it almost a normal deck size so unlike th tgc you won't have a huge deck advantage.
if both players cooperated and tried to activate this trap card, they would still find it difficult
This card should be c cause it useless
we need pre errata verzion
