  • Changes 1 face-up monster your opponent controls to face-down.
  • You can Special Summon this card as Normal Monster when a Trap card is activated (by you or your opponent). Gains immunity towards monster effects.
  • This card is not treated as a Trap card, therefore spell/trap removal effects does not work on this card.


  • If this card leaves the Field after it was Special Summoned, banish this monster.
  • Have weak ATK and DEF.


  • When you flip this Trap card after it was Set, it is still considered Trap Card, and it will only set a face-up monster your opponent controls, face-down. After that resolves, this card will be sent to the Graveyard.
  • After it was sent to the Graveyard, you can therefore activate its effect by chaining to another Trap card’s activation.
    Monsters set to face-down by this card effect, can be flipped face up again.
  • This card also acts as an easy tribute for Citadel Whale.


When Flip summoned, this card can search for Paleozoic Canada from your Deck to your Top Deck.

Field Spell

This monster will greatly increase its ATK with Wetlands on the Field.


You can further equip Amulet of Ambition to this monster to increase its ATK based on its level difference with the opponent’s monster.

Wait, what’s so good about this card? To me, it’s just a floodgate trap hole, that clutters your field with a 1200 beat stick (immune to traps)?

In the first place it's indeed just a Floodgate, but you have the option to special summon it from the GY in a chain with another trap card which gives you a free monster that you can use for a tribute summon.

So it's Floodgate + Free Tribute fodder.
a 2 for 1 card.

Well assuming your deck even does tribute summon, which only Hazy does and sometime archfiend. I’ll stick to my 3 flood gate trap holes thank you.

wrong on normal summoned monsters, nice try though
Anyone think this could be a viable f2p way of substituting floodgate while still getting new relevant cards? I started this game last month and dont even wanna touch the generation next box

New player so I'd rather buy stuff from the newer boxes which tend to be stronger and more relevant due to powercreep. Definitely looking at Anki as well.

its a trash box with main cards from masked heroes, amazoness, and geargias, all tier 1 decks? talking shit mate
Very nice card. Tech favorite.
weak against hazys, can't effect them
Palaeozoics combo well with the tiki trap monsters so if you crash with both tiki trap monsters on the field you destroy a monster then reset your trap
Wow a canadian paleozoic. Will there be an american one as well in the future?
Christ, I hate paleo as an archetype. I pray Toadally Awesome never comes to DL.
