Tips, Related Cards, Rulings

  • Although this card has good effect, its versatility still does not surpass cards like Enemy Controller, Windstorm of Etaqua, Curse of Anubis, in terms of position switching cards, the primary reason is that these cards does not have the prerequisite of having a Machine-type monster on the field in order to activate.
  • If you are to include this card into your deck, it is recommended to put at most 2 copies to make room for other versatile alternatives.
  • This card can be activated during your opponent’s Main Phase or Battle Phase, strategically it is recommended to activate during their Battle Phase, first reason is to catch your opponent off guard, second reason is to prevent them from adjusting their strategy during their Main Phase.
  • The strength of this card compared to other position-switching cards is that, during that turn this card is activated, all your opponent’s existing monsters, and would-be Normal Summoned/Special Summoned monsters, will be forced into Defense mode, this potentially disrupt current meta decks, such as Red-Eyes decks, which can activate Red Eyes Spirit during Battle Phase to Special Summon another Red-Eyes monster for a follow up attack; and also Ninja decks, which has the potential to perform multiple attacks using their Transformation/Duplication traps during Battle Phase. All these Special Summoned monsters are forced into Defense mode until the end of the turn Pulse Mines was activated.

This card ruins amazoness, Masked heros and furries day.
I'm gonna try this card in my Zane deck.
Got two of these at the carnival, so now I have three. Although having three of these doesn't really matter anymore...
No other way of getting this card? It is the only thing im missing form a few of my decks and there doesn't seem to be any good alternatives.

Does this work even if the machine monster you control is on face down defense position?

The name Machine Angels doesn't mean they are Machine-type monsters lol, they are still Fairy-type monsters and how do you plan to use Pulse Mines with it?

It's a common miss understanding you see machine ancient ritual is what I like to call a fake and a imposters it's a ritual card but it put machine in its name so it can pretend to be something it's not it's trying to fit in with the new surge of machine support it wants to deceive you and have poor folks like op here to fall for it's trap try reading the fine lines and it will be easy to spot
