Can someone please explain 3 things...
1-I just activated windstorm to stop relinquish from attacking and it didn't turn him to defense
2: they no longer let you use enemy controllers 2nd effect to take embodiment to your side of the field
3: I thought if you attacked, and opponent activated mirror wall, after one of your monsters died, you can twister it from your hand and destroy it before attacking again?
I dont know about the first and third complaint, but you were never able to take over the embodiment with enemy controller. Since it is still technically a trap card (as stated in its description) enemy controller doesnt recognize it is a monster
In order to take control of a Trap Monster such as Apophis, you need an empty S/T zone. In other words: you need 2 S/T zones total in order to take control of Apophis (1 to activate Enemy Controller, and another to place Apophis in: Enemy Controller does not remove itself until AFTER it has taken control of a monster, after all).
