Swallow Flip, an excellent Counter Trap, and only a
Super Rare, that negates the activation of an Effect
Monster's effect that activates when said monster is
Special Summoned, including itself, and destroy it.
Swallow Flip can be a beautiful tech card, but I
just have that "brushed aside as crap" feeling about
it. You guys need to open your minds up a little
This card is the inferior version of Mirror of
Oaths. it is a Counter Trap, which means that it is
going to be hard to activate, and is generally not a
good sign. The effects is similar to Mirror, but
instead negates the effect of the summoned monster
at Counter Trap speed.
As most of the cards Special Summoned from the deck
do not have effects that activate (besides
Gladiators) this card is far more less utilitarian
than Mirror. Though it does have the advantage of
not being able to be chained to (except by another
Counter) it is not nearly powerful enough nor
versatile enough to be played well. Plus, it doesn't
draw you a card, something that you should always
choose in deciding between similar cards.
Swallow Flip ...
Quick - name as many monsters as u can that activate
their effect when special summoned ... (not normal,
not tribute, not continuous)
ok ... uhm ... yeah .... go on, .... yeah .... i'm
ok. Time's up. And now how many of those are people
playing with? ...
Exactly. And that right there should tell u how good
this card is ... or is NOT ...
Don't play it. Ever. Just set a bottomless trap hole
N o V a
Thursdays Card of the
Day is Swallow Flip. Personally when I saw the
spoiler and no effect, I thought this was going to
be some Blackwing card. Anyways, Swallow Flip is a
rather complicated counter trap. It negates the
activation of an effect monster's effect that
activates when a monster is Special Summoned,
including itself and destroys the monster. Not many
monsters really come to mind, Gorz, Dragon Ice,
Cyber Dinosaur are the only ones that really come to
mind since they activate. Cyber Dragon doesn't
really activate it just can Special Summon itself.
The others need something to happen. Another 2 that
just came to mind is Phantom Dragon, which is almost
as popular as Gorz and more popular than Dragon Ice
and Cyber Dinosaur, then theres Van'dalgyon the Dark
There are a few out there you can destroy with
Swallow Flip that actually see play, but more times
than not I believe you wont be able to activate this
card. But that could just be me not liking the card
since I believe there are better options like Royal
Oppression out there.
Swallow Flip…. Another
one of those Gladiator Beast-hate cards found in
RGBT. This card is basically the twin for Pulling
the Rug. If it were not for the existence of Mirror
of Oaths, you could definitely expect to see this
card being played.
Its effect is not bad at all, it does its main job
in shutting down the Gladiator Beast toolbox. Not
only does it have an effect on Gladiator Beast, this
card also stops Gale in Blackwings, however you are
not likely to see the latter occur.
There is no reason why a player would use this over
Mirror of Oaths. Not a bad card on its own right
though, just that there are better options.
