  • Can't special summon other monster(s) for the rest of the turn.
  • You need to have the required monsters in your deck.


  • This card has multiple drawbacks, such as not being able to special summon other monsters, or go into Battle Phase during the same turn, which really slows down certain decks strategies.
  • Paying Life Points for activation can be seen as an advantage to activate certain character’s skill.
  • Use the filter option in the card catalog to search for which cards you can special summon with Ties of the Brethren easier.

Applicable monsters

Certain archetypes like Ghostricks, Harpies and Magnets are monsters that can really benefit from Ties of the Brethren. They can benefit from having multiple monsters that are similar to them, and they have the same type, attribute, and level as the others in its archetype.


Use this card on any one of Ojama Yellow, Ojama Blue, or Ojama Green to special summon the others. Then you can activate Ojama Delta Hurricane to wipe your opponent's board.


Ties of the Brethren works well on Geargia monsters since their effects lets you destroy your opponent's monster(s), and/or spells and traps depending on the number of Geargia monsters you control. This can make Geargia into a very strong control deck.

so you want your entire monster zones filled in one turn and attack?
This is a very strong card in Cloudian farming decks to thin out your deck. It also helps to activate KaibaCorp Bling searching Ra in cases where opponent deckouts first.

Using KaibaCorp Bling also means you are restricted into certain DM characters when farming, though.

Which is not a good thing when farming a character that only shows up in GX/5Ds overworld.

However, on the other hand, with the amount of deck thinning you can do in a Cloudian Ra deck (this card searching the monsters and Zeradias searching the Sanctuary field spell, not to mention if you also run a copy of Diamond Dust Cyclone like me), it's likely that KaibaCorp Bling is not that needed most of the time.
I rate this card as the worst of the entire set.

Positive thinking here, maybe he meant "worst" as in "the most broken"

Funny but many years ago I was collecting Yugioh cards in paper and having played chess a long time (now 41 years) I collected those. But yeah, they suck.
Awesome card, I'm testing it with 3 Necrovalley.

Zero regrets.

Not bad, I bet Necrovalley will be really cool in the future. Not really broken as some might fear, Ancient Gears became a solid tier 2 for a reason, people just... chickens out for no reason.
Wish this card was spell speed 4. Feelz bad when your opponent does ECon take or Canadia so you pay all those life points for nothing.
pulled two in the span of 30 minutes using about 500 gems, nice luck.

Yessss ! y'know, I whaled really hard back in the day and I'm glad I did because that's how I got my 3 Ties ! :B !
Is there any cards to special summon monsters from the deck with the same name?

There isn't a fairly generic one. But Machine Duplication and The League of Uniform Nomenclature exist for very specific things.
Also works well in a fairy deck.

Worst cards in the box are gishki apparently. I’m sad this one had to be in this box.

Except you're wrong. The worst cards in the box are clearly the original chess themed archfiends. Gishkis are 2x more usuable than those fiends becuase cards like Gishki Psychelone which can be used for ritual missions.
anyone think this would be good for the new cyber dragons? summon zwei, drei, and proto in one turn to fuse or beatdown?

You can’t attack or fuse the turn you activate this so you would have to stall a turn. It’s not worth it.
