Pros

  • Switches all monsters your opponent currently controls, as well as monsters that would be summoned after the activation of this card to defense position
  • Effect does not target.

Cons

  • Must control a Machine monster in order to use this card.
  • If your opponent's monster can switch their position since it was summoned on the previous turn, activating Pulse Mines will switch them to defense, but they can switch it back to attack position.

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.

*AG and Geargia

In the end, Geargia just disappeared due to powercreep, and AG still marches on anyway.

Semi-limiting this card was rather pointless, in the end. Should be back to unlimited.

FYI regarding DAMAGE STEP,
Cards that could be activate at damage step are only cards that have the effect that manipulate ATK/DEF (increase, decrease, halved, etc)
For example : Forbidden chalice, world legacy clash, mirror wall, subterror final battle, etc.

But cards that have specific condition such as wall of D won't activate since it only trigger when a monster to declare an atk.

Also cards that manipulate damage (i think).
Such as regular Kuriboh.

Pulse mines plus tragedy=RIP monsters

OR you can use Earthquake or Card Rotator or Enemy Controller with Tragedy. You won't have to have a machine monster on the field then. Preferable to use on 1-2 monsters (waiting until they have 3 is too risky)

Funny how a card used in Geargias is now "interesting" in ancient gears.

This card was used in AG long before Geargias.

It's an insanely good Machine support. Obviously every Machine deck that doesn't require another Semi'd card will at least heavily consider this thing. It has nothing to do with Geargia players being geniuses.

Djinn Disserere of Rituals:

When you Ritual Summon a monster, you can banish this card from your Graveyard as 1 of the monsters required for the Ritual Summon. The monster Ritual Summoned using this card is unaffected by Trap effects.

I'm gonna try this card in my Zane deck.

Hmmm, this might be able to have interesting applications.
Gold sarcophagus can be obtained in the selection box, so yes "they have reprinted structure...
My Monster Cards (yugi's skill) but requires 6 cards instead of 3
the limit to this card is trying to get 3 of it from one pack, is time and gem consuming
