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.
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.
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
don't ever touch this card, my deck relies on this.
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).
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.
