You can use enemy controller or security orb to protect it for a turn in order to activate the effect. Or you can use desert sunlight(has to be set already) to flip it in the same turn you set. When you get the fusion monster, use dimension hole to make it permanent. You're welcome
Dimension hole wouldn't happen to be a quick play card is it?
Please help. I placed Summoner of Illusions face down, as well as the trap card Machine King - 3000 BC face down in the tap column. The next turn, my opponent attacked me and beforehand his attack hit, i summoned machine king to the field in defense position. Once he flipped SoI, his effect activated and asked me to tribute 1 monster to activate effect. I tributed my Machine King - 3000 BC and all that happened was they were both sent to the graveyard. In the past I have tributed this trap to summon BEUD, but for some reason this keeps happening. Must I summon the trap before the initial attack on SoI?
Someone help. :/
So it seems you had the same issue I was confused about, each time you summoner a fusion monster via Summoner of Illusions, it will be destroyed and sent to the graveyard not sure if you have figured this out yet or not but that's what it does only for that turn it was summoned. This is best used with a magical hats combo so he doesn't get destroyed before you can use his effect.
Worthless UR card such your Shining Dragon friend. Worthless combo.
This is actually a really good alternative to Serket for farming. Just set him 2nd last turn (he wont get attacked) and flip him during your turn and summon BEUD and then martyr/union attack for piranha/vassal
With regards to BEUD, I honestly find it better to just run Poly in a Kaibaman deck. The drawback is you don't usually get him out til late game and you have to have a plan to protect all 3 BEWD, but SoI is just as situational and a lot harder to get than Poly. Also, Monster Reincarnation can add a BEWD to your hand to get the fusion off if one is destroyed, or you can use it to Kaibaman a BEWD while you have BEUD on the field.
Shallow Grave doesn't work for fusion monsters sent to the grave that was summoned by summoner of Illusions, just tried it.
Interdimensional Matter Transporter does save the fusion monster from being send to the graveyard.
This is a hard card to use. However if managed to pull this off, the ubewd shd bring big effect of game.
