Yu-Gi-Oh/Fusion Tag question


Hello Exo,

It is Brian with a ruling on Fusion Tag with summoning VWXYZ Dragon Catapult Cannon. If I were to use 2 Fusion Tag spell cards on 2 Vorse Raider cards(1 being treated ad VW tiger catapult and the other as xyz dragon cannon)am I able to banish the 2 Vorse Raider cards?

I hope that you can help me out with this question.

Hi Brian,

We can look at an OCG Ruling for this:

◾To Special Summon "VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon", you must banish "VW-Tiger Catapult" and "XYZ-Dragon Cannon" from your side of the field. If "V-Tiger Jet" is targeted by 2 copies of "Fusion Tag" by revealing "VW-Tiger Catapult" and "XYZ-Dragon Cannon", it can be treated as "VW-Tiger Catapult" or "XYZ-Dragon Cannon" when used as a Fusion Material, but you must control the other monster to Special Summon "VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon". (You cannot Special Summon "VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon" using only 1 monster.)

From this we can see that a monster targeted by "Fusion Tag" can be used for the Contact Fusion of the monster revealed by "Fusion Tag". (It just can't be used as both fusion materials at once...)

So yes, if you had 2 copies of  "Vorse Raider", both targeted by separate copies of "Fusion Tag", you could use them as contact fusion material for "VWXYZ Dragon Catapult Cannon".

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.
