Use Fiendish Chain on Aromage Jasmine to prevent deck out.
Is it just me or is this card not working anymore. The monsters still attacks when you use this.

Did you activate this during damage step?
this card is going to be abused. it does a better job NOT sitting uselessly on the field compared to fiendish chain and you can use this on lava golem and much more.....attacking into my face down flip eff? since it has the attack altering effect i can let you attack and flip my guy face up and chain this and still protect my dude
Budget Fiendish Chain, will see some play.

Yes it can. In such event, the attack will not stop.

This card also has interesting interaction with Book of Moon, which depends on whether you chained BoM to this card or not.

If you chained BoM to this card to flip this card's target face-down, Shadow Spell will still affect the target anyway, even if it's flipped face-up by another card effect later on.

But if you don't chain BoM, and just use it to flip the target face-down after Shadow Spell resolve, Shadow Spell will lose its target and just remain on the field meaninglessly.
I don't see any reason to use this instead of Floodgate or Fiendish chain

This card is very cheap. It might actually be good for beginners. You can still replace it later with better staples.
This gonna be in my troll deck :)
One of Kaiba's signature traps from the series

I don't get why people say this. He used it ONCE, and it wasn't even in a particularly memorable way.

He used Cloning 3 times and I still wouldn't consider THAT a signature trap of his.

I don't know why it's not memorable to you, but it was memorable to many people, because he used it on his own Blue-Eyes when Pegasus took control of it, preferring to mercy 🔥 it than having it be controlled by Pegasus.

Plus, this card was one of the holofoil in Structure Deck Kaiba Evolution in TCG.
Potentially in the blue eye's structure deck. But this card is useless now with fiendish chain in the game.

Ofc. Since konami has 0 plan when releasing cards. This card would be really good before 3 years. Now is utter crap.

And surely has a high rarity to be filler in a box and to annoy players. 2 birds 1 stone

improved spell binding circle.
decent old school card.. been waiting very patently for this card to show up
