"Dotedotengu", a card whose activation timing mentions possession

Possess is the term used to describe who has a card at a given time. It is similar to the term control, but it also applies to locations other than the field, such as the hand or Deck.

Cards considered to be in a particular player's possession are all of the following:[1]
