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.
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 ?
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.
This one counts as a reptile and so can be equipped with molting escape. This can make a rather sturdy defence if you have nothing else on hand to summon, although some people may find the cost of it taking up both a monster slot and a trap card slot too high.
