Yu-Gi-Oh/Field spells


Hey Exo, I'd like to thank you in advance for answering a probably really noobish question.

I am working on a Wanghu Anti-meta deck, and I had thought about using The Seal of Orichalcos. How would a field spell and the effect of King Tiger Wanghu interact? Would a monster, say Psi-Blocker, get the boost BEFORE Wanghu's effect, or would it be destroyed?

No problem Zack, though this isn't really a "noobish" question - it's something that a lot of people get wrong.

It all comes down to the fact that the attack boost from "The Seal of Orichalcos" is a continuous boost, it doesn't activate.
That means it's in effect from the moment the monster touches the field. The most is effectively summoned with that ATK.

In the case of Psi-Blocker, King Tiger Wanghu would "see" a 1700 ATK monster enter play. He doesn't destroy monsters with that much ATK, so Psi-Blocker is allowed to remain on the field.

If an activated effect causes the attack gain, then the situation can often turn out differently.
Fortunately, most field spells that boost ATK do so continuously, so you should be fine.

Hope that helps.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of 4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
