Despite this archetype's unorthodox "bait-and-switch"-like tactics, "Sibyl" have many weaknesses. Cards like "[[Dark Simorgh]]", "[[Searchlightman]]", "[[Light of Intervention]]" prevent "Sibyl" monsters from being Set or flipped face-down in first place. "[[Jurrac Velphito]]" is also dangerous to "Sibyls" because it destroys face-down monsters immediately without them ever flipping face-up. Other cards which prevent battle position changes, whether of the "Sibyl" player's monsters or the opponent's, such as "[[Gaap the Divine Soldier]]" and "[[Gravity Axe - Grarl]]" can halt most, though often not all, of the "Sibyl" player's moves. Additionally, the deck has difficulty removing monsters summoned by the effect of "[[Raging Cloudian]]".
