Also, use the above strategy, then play "Snake Whistle" to get another reptile out.
Traditional Format: Whilst this card and "Begone, Knave!" are on the field, discard "Makyura the Destructor" or activate "Cathedral of Nobles". You can then continually return this card to your hand while it deals battle damage to your opponent, then special summon it again immediately. This only works once per turn because "Embodiment of Apophis" can only be activated during the Main Phase.
Use this card with "Imperial Custom" to have a monster that cannot be destroyed by battle, or by card effects.
Since it is easy to get 3 of these on the field, you can use "Delta Attacker" to inflict massive battle damage to your opponent.
