Flipping Trap Monsters

Post #1 by Shugunou » Tue Jun 09, 2020 9:38 am

If I were to use a card like Metal Reflect Slime and my opponent plays Book of Moon on it after it becomes a monster, will it just be a monster in facedown defense position, or will it be a set trap card?

If a Trap Monster is flipped face-down by Book of Moon or the likes, it will be Set as a Trap card (return it to the same position it was activated). You can activate it again the next turn,

However, with the new rulings where they no longer take up a s/t zone while being a monster, if your s/t zones are full when book of moon resolves, the card is instead sent to the graveyard by game mechanic

If the Trap Monster via effect is not treated as a Trap anymore, then it will remain in the monster zone flipped down.
