Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) by banishing 2 monsters you control and 1 monster from your Graveyard. Once per turn: You can target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; equip that target to this card. (You can only equip 1 monster at a time to this card with this effect.) This card gains ATK and DEF equal to the ATK and DEF of that equipped monster.

  • Able to steal an opponent's monster and equip it to this card.
  • Good synergy with other banish-supporting cards.


  • Cannot be normal summoned or set.
  • Can be difficult to summon.
  • Low base stats.


Swarm monsters

Use cards like The Agent of Creation - Venus, Bubonic Vermin, or Caligo Claw Crow to make it much easier to summon this card.

Destroy your equip

Similar to Relinquished, cards that can destroy the equip card like Interdimensional Matter Transporter, Release Restraint Wave or Storm will let you equip another monster again on the next turn.

Tokens can be used as tribute

Use tokens as cost for summoning The Atmosphere. This makes him easier less costly to summon.


  • Token monsters can be removed to special summon The Atmosphere.
  • The Atmosphere in the graveyard that is special summoned can be special summoned from the graveyard using revive card effects.

when you run a certain type of deck and your opponent thinks they have you beat but you surprise them with this and win the duel =D
Aurora wing os a great addition to this deck
I personally love this build for the atmosphere deck but I'm open to edits if people would like to contribute n.n (I'm aware of the switcheroo change incoming thinking of testing restart or balance)

it will be more competitive if you focus on venus by adding order to charge and normal monsters, the atmosphere used as the finisher

I would recommend eCons,Venus into ball, take, tribute off, take win.
I've tried this in my pineapple plant beast deck it is quite consistent as a finisher to be honest. I know it doesn't seem to synergise with pineapple at first glance but turns out it totally does.
Too bad it's a WINGED BEAST... just had the thought to summon it with Obedience Schooled + Playful Possum but that won't work.
Really wish I had have got bubonic vermin when it was available. 2nd turn easy summon for this card. Could make a nasty deck.
Why doesn't kuriboh work against this card?

Don't know why people say this is bad, it's actually quite good people who say its bad jist don't know how to use it properly.

Heres me easily devastating an ultimate cyber stein deck
This card is terrible. Cannot use soul exchange, cannot unequip, does not survive like relinquished, cannot be returned from graveyard with contract...

hahahahahahahahaha you haven't even used it I can tell.
I tried this card, fucking terrible, takes a bit to summon, lost it to a first attack from mirror wall, summoned another one, got eCON'ed when I tried to take his monster, came back with a measly 1000 attack and got wrecked. LOLOL! relinquish is wayyy better. AT best, its a SR. NOT even worth a UR.

You never attack with it not usually .. just most imp and finishing attacks and let ur back row do the rest i reached plat 2 with it and stopped to boost my chaos deck .. anyway build a defensive minded deck around her u'll beat almost every body .. and yea add vinus to it

lol... if you use relinquished and attack into a mirror wall, you're most likely going to get destroyed next turn anyway. Same thing with the e.con, you won't be able to take his monster and left with 0 attack, which sounds worse than atmosphere. "LOLOL"

you obviously don't know how to use it properly. This is actually easier to summon than relinquished. Ive also mirror wall a relinquished before and killed it next turn, relinquished not dying equipped with a monster is a double edge sword. People need to assess what they both do before making judgments
Reached plat 2 with this and stuck something is missing ..
Any improvements guys ??

no vermin tripple venus, no grav axe or mask, 2 otc 1 econ and 3 shine balls. def not 2 trap jammer. 3 thunder dragon works well with this deck and consider a jar of greed for deck thinning.

What's the bird trap? And what's the name of the card to the right of blast held by tribute?
<< Anonymous(Mr.tepo)
Nikolay Reply
@ClassicManEnre the bird trap is Windstorm of Etaqua, the LVL 25 reward for Mai. It forced all opposing monsters from ATK to DEF positions. The card to the right of Blast Held by Tribute is Rising Energy, SR card from Wonders of the Sky, which increases your monster's ATK by 1500 by discarding 1 card from hand (for 1 turn)
