Evaluation

RatingB+

Pros

  • Prevents all non-Spirit monsters from activating effects.
  • Can continuously lock-out monster effects.
  • Good stats.

Cons

  • Returns to the hand during the End Phase.

Tips

Normal Summon

Since this monster cannot be Special Summoned, you can use effects like Double Summon or Arrivalrivals to give you an extra Normal Summon for this card.

Staying on the Field

Izanagi lets you keep your Spirit monsters on the field while he is face-up. Mirror of Yata has a similar effect but only on the monster it is equipped to, it also provides the monster with one-time protection from destruction.

Rock Stun

Refers to a strategy which involves using Rock-type monsters with effects that restrict your opponent's plays. Koa'ki Meiru Wall and Koa'ki Meiru Sandman deck go well with this card because they negate your opponent's Spell and Trap cards respectively while Amano-Iwato prevents them from using monster effects. Amano-Iwato returning to your hand can then be used for both Koa'ki Meiru monster's maintenance cost.

Buster blader + DNA cannot negate the effect of this card because it doesn't require activation. You can say its effect is innate.

Cards like this one are: D-hero Decider, Amazoness swordswoman, Elemental HERO wildheart.

It's the skill that is broken, not the card. Only Tea with Duel Standby runs this card. Just like no one plays Cup of Ace except Sartorius with Master of Destiny

Some decks actually do run Cup of Ace without the skill, like Warm Wurm and Iron Chains mill

Well yeah, that's a different case. In that case whether Cup of Ace lets you draw or lets your opponent draw barely matters, you draw you get more key cards, opponent draw then it's easier to mill them to death.

No.. this deck will remain playable. As matter of fact, decks rarely die in the ladder, i mean.. look at samurais or darklords. Nothing happened to them, Amano will be less popular but still viable.

lol are you an idiot? Duel Standby is the only way and only reason Amano is even played.

They killed the skill = they killed the deck. Period.

Why a lot of the people using Duel, Standby! don't also use mirror of Yata for more consistency?

No, Duel Standby makes the deck actually work. Play a few games with it and you’ll see why pretty quickly

He's NOT saying Duel Standby should be changed with Mirror of Yata, though.

He said why not use both for more consistency.

this card works wonders against many deck types: but gets absolutely wrecked by U.A.s Ultra Athlete's "Effect" is not triggered normally - It's more like the passive ability to Special Summon BY returning a card, NOT by returning the card and then getting to special summon. Make sense? Also, if you're unsure, look for colons and the word "if". Usually giveaways that Amano Iwato will shut them down. (p.s. vamps are actually a little hard too but noooobody plays that sh** anymore lol)

can it negate BB fusion effect when it have dna surgery on the field?

Nope, you cannot negate it. Its not make any chain. Because Buster Blader had continuous effect not mandatory.

Is this card bugged? It seems to negate its own to the hand effect as well.

As you can see no other cards were activated (it's turn 2) and just nothing happened during the end phase.

Pay attention to what skills people use... I knew Tea was going to be involved before even looking at the image.

If I recall correctly, Duel Standby prevents you from activating card effects on your first turn. That actually works really well with Spirits.

Wow a Jinzo for monsters, that's amazing. Will this card synergize with the rock type monsters of the upcoming box? Maybe with ties of the brethern?

Ties of the Brethren doesn’t work with this for one simple reason: “Cannot be Special Summoned”

We have no Ash Blossom, Ghost Ogre, cherries and those things are what made this card used. Best thing to stop is, maybe SK and Skull meister. Probably not worth running because we’re not hand trap heavy meta

it negates as long as it is on the field

We already have cards to keep Spirits on the field even during opponent's turn.

Use Spiritual Energy Settle Machine or Izanagi to keep Amano-Iwato in the field even during opponent's turn.

Actually it is good in the TCG not only because it can prevent handtraps, but also because most of the negation in the tcg is in the form of monster effects, so you can just summon this, activate raigeki and there's absolutely nothing your opponent can do

Well, I sure do hope they won't release true dracos anytime soon or we're gonna see this card A LOT

true dracos in the next main box (the one after cyber)

True Draco most likely won't happen, they've stated they want DL to have a different meta than in real life.

That's why we have decks or cards that are never meta in real life, be meta in DL.

Subterror in TCG is completely different than DL
TCG is Guru control
you should used Six Sam as example instead
