Activate 1 of these effects.● Target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; change that target's battle position.● Tribute 1 monster, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; take control of that target until the End Phase.
This card is just so brokenly overpowered, it has no negative effects such as costing LP to use, and it's not limited or even semi-limited, which I find ridiculous. Other cards that are not overpowered, such as Pot of Greed, which only allows you to draw 2 cards is banned, because reasons. Drawing 2 cards doesn't guarantee you a win, at all, while either taking control of a monster, or just flipping them, does.
Honestly, how this card slipped past the banhammer baffles me
The reason why pot is ban is that it is a +1 and also a deck thinning card that allows you to go through your deck faster to get the cards you need. ECON is a -1 for first effect and -2 for second eff. If u want overpower then go player the TCG than where it is basically you are not allow to play if you do not run there cards.

Hi, I have taken control of enemy's Buster Blader the Dragon Destroyer with 7000 attack with this card but I couldn't attack during the battle phase. Why is that?
Nevermind, just realised he can't attack life points directly...
This card should not be able to take control of monsters, you only need this card and any monster to win a duel you don’t desrerve to win. It wouldn’t be so bad if we had 8000 life points, but that’s not the case, either limit or get rid of its 2nd effect.
Actually nowhere have I said you used dakini so great job showing everyone you can barely read English. Also you have never once explained why Econ is even broken you just say it's to good disagree with me and you're bad and you also never explained why dakini of all things shouldn't be limited cyber angels where hit twice because of that card alone but according to you it's unjustified
It is broken because it's first off without any cost, unless you use the second effect. Secondly, flipping a card during EITHER turn, meaning you can do exactly as you please at any time is just silly. And lastly, people run it solely because it's so broken and can't win without it. I'm willing to bed you run 3 copies in your deck since you defend it this much
Don't be like that. People run it to cover holes within their deck. I run 3 of them honestly when i'm building GB but now i don't run it anymore. I don't feel annoyed when ppl use that, because they know they're stucked and you're winning. Cut some slack man. I know you're running it too :)

This card is bugged on auto duel. AI won't set it for defensive purpose. Instead it will change enemy battle position even if that enemy monster has lower ATK points than your monster. Please help me and others to report this issue. Thank you.
Also, there should never be such a thing as "meta" as that literally means a very specific set of cards will be the only usable cards if you want to win, which in turn means everyone uses the same exact cards. Where's the fun in that exactly?
There will always be some cards that are better than others thats basically whats called "meta". However Yugioh has a big rng factor, because of that many decks are considered viable and thats what balances the game. Good decks are decks that minimize the rng factor,but they are not unbeatable. A Tier 4 Deck can still win against a Tier 1 deck.You can reach KOG with many decks, not just 2.
I would say 2 copies are fine IMO.
The issue is that people abuse the 2nd effect to use it as Brain Controler.
When you have only 4000 LP and you are quite open to attacks and get beaten up by your own monsters.
This card is necessary evil.
SRH doesn't have a cost, Wall of D doesn't have a cost, mirror wall doesn't have a cost on activation. Are you saying those cards shouldn't exist as well? Also e-con doesn't destroy shit, and it's not even good against the current meta deck except maybe CA
I love you're counter arguements it's literally you rewording the same stuff. Zero actual reason why the card is broken other than apparently changing battle positions= auto destroy and if you use Econ you're bad XDDDD
In response to your feedback we have now issued a new rule effective immediately to yugioh duel links and yugioh tcg/ocg. In order to change a monster from atk to def (or vice versa)either manually or through a card effect you must now discard your entire hand(minimum 7 cards). We apologize for making this card so broken lel.
3 Super Rush
3 Wall of D.
3 Mirror Wall
Simple, easy to play, complexity. People who want this banned either play CA or most likely Sylvans. Grow tf up pussies. You can't stop Seto Kaiba in the anime, you can't stop Enemy Controller in game. Except for me. Simple, easy, Complex.
You know, I lose to this card pretty often. I summon a powerful monster, then my opponent take control of it and beat me with my own monster. (Maybe special summoning another monster using Rose Lover or something for an OTK.) But when that happens, it is usually because I only have that 1 monster defending me and no defensive cards. If I had Windstorm of Etaqua or Enemy Controller of my own, I could weather that turn, and on the next turn, my opponent will be at a severe disadvantage. So if you often lose to E-Con in way I described... then you're probably too reliant on just a single monster and not having enough defensive cards. YGO is all about anticipating your opponent and counter play, so go and formulate a counter strategy!
That said, there is this once I defended myself using Etaqua... but then my opponent played Ultimate Providence to counter my trap, and proceed to beat me using my monster plus his own Carrot. That kind of stuff happens.
The problem with enemy controller is that it's a true "Get out of jail free" card, which should never exist in any game. It gives everyone a free win for no effort, which takes all the fun out of the game.
I wouldn't go that far. E-Con will only result in your loss if you only have exactly one powerful monster on your side, and don't have any defensive cards. What E-Con really does is punish people for having only one (face-up) monster or not having enough defensive cards. I hate E-Con too, but it is definitely possible to play around it... which is what I'm training to do now.
