Card Effect TypeCard effect / Quick-like Effect / Condition


Target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; change it to face-down Defense Position. 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.

  • 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.

Your deck relies on this? Ok so you are openly saying you are trash and need a broken overpowered card to even have a chance? That's precious xD

best tech ever, not just a combo breaker since it can help you to summon high lvl monsters as well like U.A. and I haven't tried to synchro summon with it, but it might work as well.

In this game you can get 3 copies of the UR card by reseting the box and starting opening packs all over again.

You can reset the boxes as he said, or get stupid lucky like I did. I got a copy in a guaranteed UR deal, then pulled the copy in the box, it was glossy...

Should I bother trying to get a third?
Honestly I don't see why this card so powerful , I play alien and I can counter this card ,mainly because thanks to mind scan ,mysterious triangle and "A"cell recombination device.

lol Alien, because that is the single most broken deck in the game.
They should change the requirements for certain cards like Brainwashing Wave to require 10 tokens at least.

But as we all know, Konami is trash at basic balancing, so that'll never happen.
So in short, you are just a trash duelist for relying on a broken overpowered deck to even stand a chance.
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.
What does "Once per chain" mean

You can't activate this card manually from the graveyard, only if your opponent activates a trap card, you can chain this card's effect from the graveyard, and only once, you can't activate it twice in the same chain if you have 2 of these cards in your graveyard.

You can also chain it in responce to your own trap card.

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
How to counter this thing?

Jinzo, or ANY form of backrow removal.

Cosmic Cyclone, Galaxy Cyclone, Chain Dispel (in case your opponent runs three and 2 of them are in the deck) Soul Release if in the graveyard, or even using Anti Trap cards like EH Wildheart and Blizzard Princess (although it only works once for Blizzard Princess).
Christ, I hate paleo as an archetype. I pray Toadally Awesome never comes to DL.
