Why do u want to try this skill anyway? Destiny Board and Compensation are better skills from Bakura

It needs to be triggered by a card effect, not by a Skill.

Cards cannot respond to Skills.
Just want opinions on how to better this deck. Thanks in advance!
Some guy
This is bakura's only normal skill (ie non drop skill that you gotta randomly find from legendary duelist) that's actually decent.
compensation and draw sense dark are just awful. They gave bakura crappy normal skills apart from this one.

Compensation is actually very useful as a substitute for the fiend farewell skill, or something similar to the fiend farewell deck. Draw sense however is just garbage, like no 🔥 we're going to summon dark/fiend monsters, what'd you expect? Plant monsters? Compensation is also pretty bad since you need to get inflicted 1000 damage to activate it, and the health you recover is just dissappinting.
Should Tether be ignoring the effects of cards it sends to the graveyard? This feels like a bug.

Skill effects are like phantom effects... nothing can activate in response to its effect for example card effects when sent to gy
I ran out of cards two times because I used Fiend Farewell and Magical Merchants to thin out my deck and my opponents then used this skill T_T
(I definitely wasn't prepared for so many Bakuras in PvP lately)
Does this skill allow you to tribe set or did I get cheated somehow

Well, if the person running a deck with this skill, send one effect monster from their deck to graveyard, it is a easy way to especial summon a monster, but no, this skill only send cards to graveyard, nothing else
My god, today was the first time I played against someone using this skill, how can they allow this 🔥ed up skills? 3SD, this 🔥 and the one from keith that steals one of your trap cards, like really? 🔥ty skills need to be thrown in the trash

Not many people use the latter 2 skills, though ToD is more popular with Vampire Lord (I do use Bandit, and it would be very powerful if the activation condition wasn't so harsh). 3SD is very popular though.

Well, i don't like decks built over skills, like mostly HHG, and 3*D. But this skill is not like those, is a fair one, and hard condition to use unlike other skills, plus isn't drop skill,so anyone can use it. So, not OP, but good yes.
This skill is really op

3SD is no match for the legendary top tier Tether of Defeat. But for real I have no idea how anyone thinks this skill is good rn LOL

This skill should be able to be used from the Battle Phase, not the Main Phase...OF THE NEXT TURN, to be best effective but still my legit fav skill.

And everyone claiming OP, it's not, it really isn't. Just be glad it isn't as "OP" as it SHOULD be.
