The basic rule is that Counter Traps can only be used against the card they are immediately following in a chain.

So for Counter Traps:

  • Chain Link 2 used against Chain Link 1 only
  • Chain Link 3 used against Chain Link 2 only
  • Chain Link 4 used against Chain Link 3 only
  • Chain Link 5 used against Chain Link 4 only
  • Chain Link 4 CANNOT be used against Chain Link 1's effect.


This also prevents "loading on" of "Magic Drains". So you cannot chain 2 "Magic Drains" to the same Spell Card, hoping your opponent won't be able to discard two Spell Cards to save his original Spell Card.
