You can only activate this card when your opponent declares an attack. Destroy the attacking monster.

*** *** ***

Today's COTD is quite possibly the most popular 1 for 1 trap in todays metagame. When it was first released, we still had cards like Raigeki running abroad, so we didnt really NEED to use this card, but once the first restricted list came out, this card slowly started to gain popularity. Before long the popularity basically snowballed to the point where it is now; at LEAST one copy is played in almost EVERY deck. Although it doesent GUARANTEE you protection (Cards like Mobius and V-Lord do NOT fear the armor) it can get you out of a tight spot.

Advanced Format 4/5

One word


I ususally use Bottomless Trap Hole to get rid of Vampire Lord

Let me do a COTD yo. I'm like, mega awesome!

Sakray Armour is gonna see even more play once Gadgets hit US shores. 1-for-1 Removal FTW!

its none chainability is the only negative... it was very good aggro format imo

^We're currently in an aggro format, Jeezy. Sakuretsu Armour may be slow, but it's as powerful this format as it was two formats ago.

that format Stein wasnt as huge... it is big now... and Saku vs. a Stein deck rarely works

Yeah I'm seeing a slight decline in its use, before people realized how bad Stein rocks souls I was seeing Sak in threes, but now people are playing one and other traps.

I think the element of suprise is a big thing. Wouldnt it be awesome to see a competitive deck running traps like Shift?

Good card. As earlier raters have said though non-chainable hinders it a bit. Plus it doesn't stop stuff like Phoenix. I run this in twos with Bottomless trap hole.

Yo man, Shift would be a gangsta card to put in a deck.

*thinks up idea*

I hate having this as my facedown against a V-Lord. Still pretty much staple. In three's. 3.5/5

4/5 Excellent Card, you can find out on your own why I said.

We should go to a regional and play 3 Shifts
