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.
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.
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.
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
I dreamt I was being caressed by this water creature, then it coiled up in my body and strangled me until I choked hard. T'was such a scare, I wonder why my dream became like this :/
