Just got my 4th copy of this in the card trader for a missclick... So 10 days of gold goes to the trash and 4 UR Jewels too.
Fantastic card. Great tribute fodder for pretty much anything you want to tribute. Use it with econ to tribute summon a monster and remove your opponent's monster in one go! Use order to charge on it. Having an easy special summon that works in any deck (that isn't a meta deck like red eyes) is vital. If you don't want to use meta decks you should put two in your deck. It can easily boost your win ratio.

I was having all kinds of trouble because my deck just wasn't capable of putting two monsters on the field in a turn. Decided to put two of these in and went on an instant win streak.

No. You can not.
For some reason my discblade rider does not recognize it in the graveyard when it is destroyed while summoned as a monster. Is this a glitch or some ill-explained game feature?

Discblade riders effect only works on normal trap. Apophis is a continues trap not normal trap

Yeah, not worth anyway. If it is for a mission, play with a friend and tell him/her to use Embodiment of Apophis, use Exchange card (from Joey drop) or use a card to get EoA out of the graveyard.
Most players underestimate this card quite a bit.
It has a good def, can be summoned instantly like a trap and is great for tribute fodder.
And it also has a good synergy with storm which is an awesome card.
How to summon 3 times in a duel? Phase 59, please just have one.

Get it in Card Trader. Or use Pot of Benevolence to bring it back from the grave, with Temple of the Kings activated if you happen to have it as the bottom card in your deck, and destroy it with Twister or something, and recover it again from grave with another Pot of Benevolence. Or have an agreement to Duel someone with 2 Apophis in their deck and use Exchange spell card to take theirs.
Can relinquish absorb it since it's still a trap card ?

I have tried it before. It can absorb this card and copy its atk and def (1600/1800).
Does Hane-Hane work on this card?
Will Hane-Hane destroy it instead?

Never mind, I just tested, it works!!! Now I can do lvl 59 mission with just 2 copy of this card :)
This card has been a life saver on numerous occasions. Makes it too easy to tribute a 5-6 monster and has decent defence too in case you need to summon it on your opponents turn. There are drawbacks though in the fact that it takes up both a trap slot and monster slot if you summon it for any other reason besides tributing.

Can you summon 2 at the same time? If yes then you can tribute them for level 7+ card too.
