I have read somewhere that you can set and activate a normal spell card in the same turn. I did do it in my locaction but the spoiled brat I played against said no and everyone in the room said no.

But I was quite sure I read it somewhere. Am I wrong?

why would you set something you will activate the same turn?..... also, i have an understanding that no, you cant, if you set a card you must wait 1 turn to be able to activate it...

This. You can't set anything and then flip/activate it that same turn.

I found it now on the yugi wiki:

Although Spell Cards are as powerful as a Trap Card, they have the advantage that they may be played the turn they are drawn without having to Set them first. A Set Spell Card may be activated the turn it is Set as well (with the exception of Quick-Play Spell Cards).


I think its very important, especially for my mill deck.

Just imagine you have a really important trap card that could save your ass and you some other spell cards or whatever on your hand. Set a spell card many activate MST or whatever in this turn so it wont chain.

that move of setting the spell works nicely at my locals. kids are so gungho to mst any possible traps that u can put down trap cards that activate "when this card is destroyed by an effect..." and they'll bite on it 50% of the time. then after they see you do it, they'll let u set bth and not go after it. chess games lol

if you've noticed, my builds are based around chess type strategies.

You really can set normal/continuous/equip spell cards and activate them later in the turn. It is so because the lockdown that cause a card to not be able to be activated after it is set is because of the possibility of chaining the card. It would be too strong to be able to set quick-play/trap cards and be able to activate them right away.

As to why you would set spell cards before activating them:
You can set your normal spell cards before flipping morphing jar for example, that way you keep everything and still be able to activate the normal spell cards later during the turn. You can protect your hand by doing so. (Morphing jar, Card Destruction, Reload, you may want to keep cards before activating them)

For example, set giant trunade and other cards, flip morphing jar, get a tuner in the new hand, activate giant trunade and synchro. Without knowing if you'd get a monster/tuner, it would've been risky to activate giant trunade before hand.

O_O Wow, you really do learn something new every day, lol. And yeh, for why you set them, shadowdragon is dead on. So many people love backrow hate, setting the occasional spell card as bait tends to keep them thinking.

you can also set your field spell over your existing one if it gets you a bonus.

i.e. geartown or karakuri showdown castle

and then still activate it later that turn
