Card Effect TypeSummoning condition / Ignition Effect / Condition / Continuous Effect


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.

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)

@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)
Better version of relinquish

You serious? Relinquished is way stronger than this 🔥 for all the possible reasons! Easier to summon. Stronger effect. Etc

This card's ATK and DEF become equal to that equipped monster's. If this card would be destroyed by battle, destroy that equipped monster instead.


This card gains ATK and DEF equal to the ATK and DEF of that equipped monster.

Reverse Trap will easily destroy the Atmosphere by dropping its atk to zero.
Just run this along with Possessed Dark Soul to counter both!

To be fair 90% of the time, you wouldn't want to target a face down card with the atmosphere. The only reason this is good with Relinquish is because of its other two effects.
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

The only reason I know about this card was because of fubuki in gx

Use cards that can fill the field quickly. Anything that can summon tokens is perfect, since it's not a tribute summon. Besides the mentioned cards in the thread, Twin-Headed Behemoth can work, Blockman has some serious potential too if you have a way to stall while it's face-up. On the 2nd turn you can tribute it for 2 tokens so then you immediatly meet all requirements for the summon.

Use the card light impulse from Valkyrie's rage pack, because what it does is you can send two cards, one should be a monster, so you have 2 tokens on the field and 2 monsters in the gravyard
<< Anonymous(Boltflare)

Light impulse only works for tribute summons. Try venus instead. She can summon up to two shine balls for you to tribute. Bonus points if you have order to charge because that's one tribute in your graveyard AND an opponent's monster destroyed all at once.
This card is not out yet. I have checked the Neo Impact deck and it is not there. He is NOT in the game.

It's not in neo it's one of the URs in the new mini deck wonders of the sky
I tried this card, 🔥ing 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"
<< Anonymous(YourNitemare)

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
Whoops pic didnt show up lets try again

It has a condition for its first special summon that Dragonfly can't fulfill. Atmosphere has to be in your hand, not deck.
This card is terrible. Cannot use soul exchange, cannot unequip, does not survive like relinquished, cannot be returned from graveyard with contract...

It is not a ritual monster...... it is an easy special summon, use it that way..

hahahahahahahahaha you haven't even used it I can tell.
Very difficult to summon? You must be joking if this card is "very difficult to summon." Some things to be considered...

1. The monster can be ANYTHING, not limited to 1 type or attribute.
2. This is a FREAKING SPECIAL SUMMON. Means that 2 tributes isn't as hard as you think.

Say, you have a monster and you can stall 1 turn. Then you normal summon a monster next turn. On the same turn, after you normal summon, you can summon this card. It's not hard (unlike enrise).

Best combo is with sphere kuriboh (sigh, another sphere kuriboh. I really need a 2nd copy of this card for this and Necrofear).

Thought the same thing: harder to summon than 1-tribute monsters, sure, but easier than 2-tribute monsters.

You only need 1 tribute for this card.

Only thing is that relinquished can use the equipped monster to survive a battle. This thing can't. Then again, it'll probably be strong enough that only card effects can 🔥 it anyway.
