Once per Chain, when a Trap Card is activated while this card is in your Graveyard: Special Summon this card as a Normal Monster (Aqua-Type/WATER/Level 2/ATK 1200/DEF 0). (This card is NOT treated as a Trap Card.) If Summoned this way, this card is unaffected by monster effects, also banish it when it leaves the field.

Evaluation

Pros

  • 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.

Cons

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

Tips

  • 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.

Search

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.

Support

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

I don't think it really needs limitation now that ancient gears and koa'ki meiru are ruling the meta.

at this point, I no longer know if it's good for heroes to die or not, they have been competitive for almost a whole year. At least they are not that overpowered anymore.

it's way better to overpower a deck than limiting cards. Just my opinion about this topic.

Overpower means power creep, which has infinite ceiling and ruins a game way faster than limitation.

Not really, no cards from the red eyes zombie era were limited. Aliens weren't limited, not hazy flames. It just happens that there are stronger archetypes; if you don't want to spend a single cent just play amazoness, hazy flames, or koa'ki meiru

Floodgate has become more useful in this current meta than canadia. When facing koa'kis, using canadia on urnight and maximus only stalls them for one turn but if you floodgate them, it clogs their monster zones and most koa'ki players have no way of getting them off the field. Same with ag - using canadia just stalls for a turn while using floodgate on their 3000atk monsters stops this deck in its tracks while you set up your own combo. And don't forget how great floodgate works against vamp queen, cosmo, anki, etc.

Vamp grace do you mean?
But they can tribute the faced down grace, and summon again from the grave with desire.

Floodgate IS becoming just as useful as canadia. Here's today's card rankings to prove it.

I SIMPLY LOVE THIS EVENT MAN !
Must add that... THE ARTWORK plays a BIG role in the western world.

Haven't you noticed, guys?.

If the dominant archetypes in the meta are CUTE LOOKING cards such as Sylvans, Cats (furries) and Amazons Ladies. Then PEOPLE RAGE A LOT !!!!!! LOL ! It's true... but... if they give us Rusty looking dudes as Ancient gear and Aggressive looking Koa'ki Meirus; then only a few complain.

They won't limit it because Ancient Gear has been added for a reason.

Fun fact: Canadia is the first card on the UR sales banner.

Konami knows it's op and they want you to buy it (spend $$)

Yeah, that's why they released Ancient Gear support; an archetype that negates traps until the end of the Damage Step.

What poisonous and deceitful freak you are.

Limit this garbage. How is this not limited to 2 cards? Nearly ever duel above gold has it and it just turns into a Canadia war.

It's a main box UR, that's why.

I'm sure eventually Konami will be brave enough to hit main box UR though, and I bet the first two will be Anki and Canadia.

But the game is great when you spend 4 consecutive turns flipping over one another's normal summon.

I wish someone could go back in time and tell the real Canadia how popular it would be, 505 million years in the future

I think you misspelled Pendulums there.

Canadia doesn't really stop Pendulums considering you can't flip down the Scales.

Synchro and Xyz are the ones most affected because the opponent can just flip the Tuner or the second same-Level monster the moment you summon it, preventing you from Synchro/Xyz Summoning.

That's why I think Canadia will be the first main box UR to get hit.

Card nees to be limited or semi ar best.
It's too good at what it does. It can shut down any monster in the game too easily. Applicable in virtually every single situation.
This card alone hard counters even a good portion of boss monsters. There is no reason why you wouldn't want to run this card.

Canadia is played so much because otherwise most OTKs would not have reliable ways to be countered. I am sick of fighting "Canadia wars" on ranked every single duel, however we have to understand it is a necessary evil right now

Canadia at least is a trap, so you need a turn to set up, imagine if every canadia is replaced by book of moon or (probably will be added) quaking mirror force or floodgate trap hole, what will you do?
Since i personally use 3 canadias all the time, it doesnt make any deck really better, it's just a stopper for those ****ing otk decks

so my dehero deck is coming along well and im looking to mix swordsman with anki and need 3 copies of mask/anki. however i dont even have 1 canadia and i do not want to waste 200 gems on possibly opening anki/mask change in selection box 2 when i could go for all 3 in valient souls. you guys think canadia will be around worth farming for a week to open this box and go for all 3 cards?

two is safest. with two copies you can combo it with the graveyard effect. if you're countering some deck or your deck specializes on the things that canadia does, then go for three as long as you can do it
