During your standby phase, since you discarded this card to the graveyard, this card will appear on your opponent’s field in ATK mode (this is not optional unless your opponent’s monster field is full), you can either use it to clog your opponent’s field, or you can attack into it and deal some damage.
You can activate its effect of switching either your own monster or your opponent’s monster’s position right away from the graveyard. Face-down monsters are flipped face up. Using this combo will allow you to attack using Chaos Hunter more strategically.
^... this cards value comes countering certain deck types like fiends, ninjas, massivemorph amazons, toon world, red eyes zombie and more... not being able to banish for those decktypes means instant loss. But you obviously let your pride get in the way of learning anything worth while about this game.
^^... it also counters beast rising & Cerbs special summon effect in hazy flame, mar / hym of light Cyber Angels + since its a ritual deck its almost all special summons, Evil Dragon Anata no banishing = final boss of deck is 0-0,endless trap hell stall decks ex: DD warrior/Dimension Gate. So at the moment this card does well against Tier 1 red eyes, Tier 2 Cyber Angels, Tier 2 Hazy Flame,
^ Tier 3 Amazon Burn, Tier 3 Dragon Anata Burn, Tier 3 Endless Trap Hell, Tier 3 Ninjas, Tier 3 Toon World and other less played but also good KOG decks like Fiends, Dark Worlds (Necrofear Version), Psychic Decks, Gia Plate Decks (most magnet decks that run this, Gandora Decks, Aromage Decks, Aliens (Gets rid of "A" Cell Recomposition Device Search effect=ez bricks)
can i summon this card when someone play phoenix from graveyard?
