Comment from the author:
Other than the tiki duo (Tiki curse & Soul) there are no cards that affect "Trap Monsters" so I decided to create this Dragon card that requires trap monsters to be summoned and focuses on the use of trap cards to activate its effects.

The monster has 3 effects and all of them involve trap cards:
1) A negation effects vs monsters + banishment. You most discard a Counter Trap to activate it.
2) A protection effect against traps cards controlled by your opponent on all your monsters.
And 3) A destruction effect vs Face-up cards. You most Discard a Normal Trap to activate it.

HMMM... I think I made it too strong (2800/3500 + negation of monsters and protection against traps)

I take suggestions, which part should I downgrade?
Which part should I keep? Which should I eliminate...

Sorry, but the card doesn't really need changes, it's not overpowered, the stats aren't too high or too high for the monster you are pulling out, it's fine, it's even a little boring, but that's not a bad thing. It's tame.


I can tell you didn't play test this card or you wouldn't be thinking the stats were too high. This card would not at all be easy to Summon let alone fast, so the stats are acceptable.


If you're wondering, you could play test this card merely by taking a piece of paper with the name and maybe some stats and slide it in a card sleeve with a real card and play it. Yes, make a proxy or 3 proxies so you can get it to your hand easier. You don't need to put all the wording on the card since you just need something to represent its place and you can leave the wording on a separate piece of paper.

Play the deck normally in a real deck, trying to get that card out (do whatever you would to do that) and see if the card is really as "overpowered" as you think it is.
