Yu-Gi-Oh/field cards


My brother and i have an issue with field cards that affect both sides.
My question is,if i have a monster who can use the field card to my advantage(destroying the card to use my affect) if the card was summoned by my opponent?
Example: umi, i have a monster who can use umi by destroying e card, my brother states because he summoned the field card only he can use it to sacrifice.

Hello Carlos!!!

So, what I think that you are trying to ask is: If my opponent uses a field spell, and I have a monster that can use that particular field spell, can I use my opponent`s field spell for my own monster`s effect?

Now, this is a hard question to answer because there are so many field spells out there that can be utilized by both players. However, if you have a card that says, "You can send one face-up field spell card to the graveyard to..."  Then, yes, you can use your opponent`s field spell. But, if the card says, "You can send one face-up field spell that you control to the graveyard..." Then, no, you cannot send your opponent`s field spell because the card says that you have to control the field spell.

In your  example, you ask about Umi. I think that you mean the card Codarus, which states:

"You can send 1 face-up "Umi" you control to the Graveyard to target up to 2 cards your opponent controls; send those targets to the Graveyard."

Since the card says, "send 1 face-up "Umi" you control to the Graveyard..." then you cannot send your opponent`s card to the grave because you have to control the Umi.

I hope that I helped!!!

I can answer questions about deck fixes regarding decks such as Infernities, Frogs, Blackwings, Chaos Dragon, Chaos, Chain Burn, Crystal Beasts, Dark World, Dino-Rabbit, Elemental HERO, Final Countdown, Plants, Quickdraw, Six Samurai, Lightsworn, Machina, Ojamas, Wind-Ups, Inzektors, Gadgets, Gravekeepers, and pretty much any OTK deck there is. I am mostly an Infernity player, but I have been around long enough to be able to basically answer any questions regarding anything yugioh related. I am not going to create decks for anybody, so do not send me a request to make a deck from scratch. I cannot answer questions about Fire Fists, Prophecy, and Merlanteans. PLEASE READ THIS: Do not send me a deck in paragraph form, the question will be rejected.


I have been playing since the game came out. I have taken part of every meta since Chaos Emperor Dragon was a card. I have topped almost every event at my locals, but I have not been to any larger scale events such as regionals or a Y.C.S.

I am currently still in High School, in tenth grade. My average grade is an 87.
