When you have no card in your hand and you need a card to turn the table you will always draw this. I never trust this card after all.

You are trolls? Correct? If there is a spell in this game that can easily turn a table is this one. If you believe Snatch Steal and Change of Heart are healthy cards for the game you gotta have a problem.

Some staple trap cards are way better than this in the current meta.

The majority of people dont know how to properly use this card. This card can easily switch tables or end a duel out of nowhere. However most people just use it as a defense mechanisme.
Lowkey been broken since release...

nah, Treacherous Trap Hole is the one that needs to be Forbidden.
need banned since staple on every deck since 2017
only giving up a card. um, what?? you give up life points every turn using archfiend cards but 800/1000 life point cost was too much for a powerful spell card like enemy controller? but you have to pay 1000 life points just to "look" at someone else's cards (seal of the ancients)?

That's cause lp dont not affect card advantage. Look at brain control it was banned in 2010 in tcg until 2016 all it has to pay 800 to take. Econ is a minus 1 in card advantage while brain control is a 0. Giving up a card is a steeper cost then lp
Never gets old
what a classic
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.

Lol Thanks Without you I would never know that..

..E-Con is punish people for going first with a 🔥ty hand in this game

Never go first, draw correct answers and you will not lose

2 Econs is very Pro.
Trunade is played mostly by noobs, however some really op builds have 1 econ and 1 trunade.

Econ over trunade will be always better in my opinion. Econ can save your life points if you go second or if your field is weak, trunade cannot.
