Wednesday - Bait Doll
Effect: Force the activation of 1 face down Trap Card.
If the timing of the activation of the Trap Card is
incorrect, negate the effect and destroy it. If it is

and in his hand. Atleast you have that secondary
Strictly an average
card, but one that's worth playing in single-copy
