Safe Zone, a Continuous Trap to end the week.  So, you select an attack position monster.  The monster cannot be destroyed by Battle, or by card effects.  It also cannot attack directly.  Now, for whatever reason, I think you can use this on your opponent's monster, so these stipulations apply the same in that situation.  It might be fun if it was the only monster they ever played, and you never played one so they couldn't ever attack you.  When this card is destroyed/removed from the Field, and the same for the Monster, the other card is subsequently destroyed.  Your monster (the selected monster) likely becomes all but indestructible, but it leaves this big fat Continuous Trap on the Field.  Unless you can rid the Field of whatever your stalling against, this becomes less and less useful.

Safe Zone is one of those cards you hear/read people talking about but fail to care about until you have to review it....if your me anyways.
So I finally looked into this card and well...it suffers from good but not room in my deck syndrome. As with many cards in the yugiverse, Safe Zone is good but just not worth a slot in most of your forty card decks.  By losing the ability to attack directly one of your monsters gains immunity to card effects and destruction; battle as well. Your monsters cannot be "targeted" or "destroyed" but the card itself can be, so its far from amazing. However, it can lead to some really irritating situations. Imagine this card behind LSS Shien or Naturia Bambooshoot. Simply destructive. For that alone, the card deserves some testing. But as I said before, its outclassed by staples and other cards. Test if you feel bold.


Today’s card is Safe Zone, by far the best card of the week. It is a combination of Forbidden Lance and Chalice without the attack modifiers, although your monster cannot be destroyed by battle, and it’s continuous. This card can protect your themed deck boss monsters (such as Herald of Perfection) or toolbox oriented monsters that need to survive (such as Gladiator Beasts). The activation requirements are that the monster target must be in attack position, but it does not have to stay in attack position. Like all continuous equip-type traps when the monster leaves the field the card is destroyed and vice versa.

Safe Zone
Today's card was one of my favorites before the set came out. There was a lot of hype about using this card with Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En. Some builds succeeded with it, but most did not. The only decks these days I see it being successful in is Herald of Perfection and occasionally Gladiator Beasts. When successfully equipped to a Herald of Perfection, the player is in a very good spot. You don't have to worry about using your negates on things like Dark Hole, Smashing Ground, Mirror Force, etc since Perfection will survive all of that. The only big worries you have are cards that can remove Safe Zone and that's what your negates are for. When you combine this with Herald and the Djinn that stops special summons, you basically win the game. In Gladiators, I see this card used as a 1 turn Waboku so you can safely tag out and used on a Heraklinos because that's just annoying. In traditional, I see very few uses for it with all of the destruction and backrow removal. This
card is good, but will only find itself in a few decks.

Safe Zone:

This is one of my favorite cards from Extreme Victory. Being able to provide almost absolute protection for any monster is really good. You can drop this bad boy on a Shi En, Herald of Perfection or even a Kristya just to make sure they won't be going anywhere anytime soon. The clause about not being able to attack your opponent directly is hardly a deterrent to play this card, as you should feel comfortable just leaving the attached monster out there and picking off smaller monsters. I really like this card, as the only common things to really get around it are Brionac, MST or Trunade, but smart playing can make those ineffective.
