OCG Rulings

  • The "2+", "4+", and "5+" effects can each be activated once per turn. (It is not "once per turn, you can activate one effect".)[2]
  • For the "3+" effect, you have to send a "Crystal Beast" Monster to the Graveyard. You cannot send a "Crystal Beast" Spell Card. This is a cost.[6]
  • You can activate the "3+" effect multiple times during the same Chain.[6]

Previously Official Rulings

  • These effects are cumulative. For example, if you have 4 or more "Crystal Beast" monsters in your Spell & Trap Card Zone, this card gets all of these effects except the last one.
  • Only the controller of this card can use these effects.
  • This card will be destroyed if your opponent plays a Field Spell Card, even if the effect “This card cannot be destroyed by a card effect.” is active.
  • This card’s effect “Once per turn, during your Main Phase, you can draw 1 card.” starts a Chain. It can only be used once a turn, even if the number of “Crystal Beast” cards in your Spell & Trap Card Zones becomes less than 4, and then becomes 4 or more again after you have used it in a given turn.

Mentions in Other Rulings

  • Field Barrier: This card only prevents the activation of Field Spell Cards themselves. The effects of a Field Spell Card already on the field (like “Ancient City - Rainbow Ruins”) can still be activated while this card is in play.
  • Last Resort: This card is resolved as follows: First, select 1 “Ancient City - Rainbow Ruins” from your Deck and place it in your Field Spell Card Zone, then your opponent’s Field Spell Card is destroyed and they draw one card.

Judge List Rulings

  • The "3+" effect of this card cannot be activated during the Damage Step.[9]
