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.

LOL I just tested this too, and it works!!!
Summoned Blue Eyes White Dragon with this trick :D
If destroyed by Baou does it affect his ability to gain 1000 atk, or due to it being a trap card it won't increase?

If it's destroyed, its counted as a Trap card so it won't increase.
It also combos with order to charge as the card is normal to clear a monster.
This card.. I hate it cuz I dont have it :(

All you have to do is unlock Odion.
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.

true, it's a good card and potential life saver, but there is definitely a trade-off when referring to those two slots
Ia this card worth trading?

nah, not really, odion already has it anyway so there you go, 4 UR for a second one is just too much as there are better trap cards out there that should complement your deck
