Formerly: Quick-Play Magic Card


Quick-Play Spell Cards, known as Instant Magic Cards in the OCG (Japanese: (そっ) (こう) () (ほう) カード Sokkō Mahō Kādo), are a type of Spell Card that are Spell Speed 2. The turn player can activate Quick-Play Spell Cards from their hand during any Phase of their turn; either player can activate Set Quick-Play Spell cards during any Phase in either player's turn, except during the turn they are Set.

Cards like "Scapegoat" and "Rush Recklessly" are examples as Quick-Play Spell Cards.


Players may activate Quick-Play Spell Cards from their hand at anytime during their own turn (except the Damage Step, unless ruled otherwise), but cannot activate them from their hand during the opponent's turn[1]

Face-down Quick-Play Spell Cards can be activated during either player's turn, but they cannot be activated the turn they are Set, very much like Trap Card.[1] i.e. If a player Sets a Quick-Play Spell Card during their own turn, they cannot activate it until the beginning of their opponent's next turn.

Quick-Play Spell Cards are Spell Speed 2, and can be Chained to other cards.


Assuming Player A is the turn player.
