Summoning and utilizing

  • "Cosmic Compass" combined with "Double Summon" can make an excellent combo to summon "Obelisk", providing that your opponent has at least 2 monsters in play.
    • You can also use "Cosmic Compass" to benefit from the effect of "Obelisk". To destroy all of your opponent's monsters, play this card right and you get a deadly arsenal of Tributes for the price of one card.
  • A good combo to use with the effect of "Obelisk the Tormentor" is to include cards that can be special summoned easily therefore getting monsters on the field to activate the effect of "Obelisk" to Tribute two monsters to destroy all of your opponent's monsters.
  • You can use "Fires of Doomsday" for this card's ability to destroy all monsters your opponent controls.
  • A decent way of preventing your "Obelisk" from falling into the hands of your opponent from "Creature Swap" since it does not target (given if it is your only monster out on the field), you can use the card "Pole Position" to prevent it from happening since the card does not target your "Obelisk" and negates spells from affecting the strongest monster out on the field.
  • A good combo to summon this card is to use "One for One" in combination with "Destiny HERO - Malicious" and "Evil Thorn". Discard "Destiny HERO - Malicious" with "One for One" and Special Summon "Evil Thorn". Activate the effect of "Evil Thorn" in order to Summon two more. Then use the effect of "Destiny HERO - Malicious" to Summon another copy and then Tribute all three to Summon "Obelisk the Tormentor".
  • Use your opponent's monsters as Tributes for this card's effect using "Soul Exchange". The Battle Phase-skipping effect won't matter since this card cannot attack anyway, however this is only effective when your opponent have at least 3 or more monsters.
  • With some good Insect-Type monsters to put in your Graveyard, "Spider Egg" can both protect you from an attack and Special Summon 3 "Spider Tokens", providing another way to summon this card.
  • To temporarily prevent this card from being destroyed by battle, you can use "DNA Transplant" and "Honest". Since neither cards target "Obelisk", by having "DNA Transplant" having your monsters be LIGHT monsters, should your opponent happen to have a monster stronger than "Obelisk", you can discard "Honest" to prevent it from being destroyed by battle and inflict 4000 points of damage to your opponent.
  • "Machine Duplication" can get you monsters on the field quickly, allowing you to Tribute them to summon this card or activate its effect. This can be combined with "Magnet Circle LV2" or "One for One" to get "Obelisk" out instantly.
  • This card can be easily summoned in a "Frog" Deck thanks to "Treeborn Frog" and "Ronintoadin". "Frog" Decks also summon quickly enough to use "Obelisk" even without "Treeborn Frog".
  • If your opponent's field is full, "The Tricky" and "Tricky Spell 4" are a good combo to both summon this card and use its effect to instantly clear your opponent's field.
  • Use Photon Veil to get 3 copies of Watapon and Special Summon them by Watapon's effect, then tribute them for Obelisk.
  • This card works well in a "The Seal of Orichalcos" Deck; your opponent cannot attack your weak monsters while you control Obelisk.
  • With the Introduction of Pendulum summoning, gathering fodder for Obelisk's summoning and effect is effortless. Once Obelisk is in play, Tribute 2 pendulums for his effect, then Pendulum summon them right back into play for a swarm of free direct attacks.

Countering

  • Among the best choices to remove it are with cards that don't target like "Smashing Ground", using "Honest" to destroy it in battle or gain control of it with "Creature Swap" (this method often used in most X-Saber or Gusto decks).
  • This card will be a dead draw if your opponent has "Mask of Restrict" or "Fog King" because they prevent tributing altogether. So be sure to deal with them first.
