It's not limited to one per turn, it can be used several times if you are playing a burn deck. You can pick the card back from the Graveyard to your hand, there are many ways to do so. Then you attack with any monster, if your opponent dares to activate the remaining cards... omg, there will be a lot of damage.

Next time check your facts before commenting a card, you piece of ignorant mule.

- dead card when the opponent never put more than 1 S/T on the field

- "prevent activation" and "inflict damage" effects both applies only for one turn, on the next turn your opponent is free from all of this card's effects

"very good"? Yeah right /s

Subterrors often put 3 traps on the field, they are really popular in the ladder. This card can be "very good", yes, even if it's situational. It would 🔥 all weevils lol
Of all the anime-only cards to hit DL, this is the worst one so far.

Yeah, this is a terrible data filler. The little amount of data taken up by this trash could have been used for something else that's much better.
Trash but interesting.

If there are card effects that forces the activation of spell/traps then this card might be good for burning them alive... Probably
another anime card
