About this image

Order of a turn.

The Standby Phase (Japanese: スタンバイフェイズ Sutanbaifeizu) happens immediately after the Draw Phase. Some cards state that certain actions are to take place in this Phase, such as the effects of "Treeborn Frog", "Royal Writ of Taxation" "Bowganian", "Legendary Fiend" and "Armed Dragon LV3" , as well as the Maintenance Costs for other cards, like "Messenger of Peace" and "Fairy Box". The Turn Player may decide in which order any of these actions are performed. There are some cards that can only be activated in the Standby Phase, such as "Curse of Fiend".

Trap Cards, Quick-Play Spell Cards and monster Quick Effects may be activated in this Phase.
