• This card works really well against non-inherent Special Summons, it allows you to chain this card to the effect and declare monster you want to get rid of.
    • Against Herald decks, you can chain this card to the activation of "Dawn of the Herald"/"Advanced Ritual Art" and declare "Herald of Perfection" - Since "Herald of Perfection" can't negate the effect of a trap card without negating the activation of a trap card itself, he will be banished.
    • Against Dragon Ruler, you can chain this card to it's summon and declare it's name - Since Dragon Ruler has already used his effect this turn, he will be banished without triggering.
  • You can also use this card to prevent your opponent from summoning a monster, that have been added to his/her hand, by declaring a revealed monster's name.
  • You can declare name of your opponent's monster, that is hard to deal with by other cards, to prevent your opponent from summoning it.
  • Chain this card to Fire Hand/Ice Hand activating to remove monster summoned and stop the loop.
  • This card can shut down an LV Monster Deck if used correctly, as they constantly use effects that Special Summon other monsters, and one in particular (this can help shut down cards such as "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8" from being brought out and negating all of your Spell Cards, for example).
  • Activate this card after your opponent activates the effect of "Stardust Dragon". They will have two options: Summon "Stardust Dragon" so you can remove it from play, or not summoning it until this card is removed from the field.

Traditional Format

  • When your opponent plays "Premature Burial", you may chain this card to remove the monster summoned and this card from play. This will also work with any card effects which special summon that you may chain to.
