A card so highly effective it’s BANNED within the TCG! Imperial Order obtained the chop within the real-life card game again in February 2022 however in Master Duel, it’s fully authorized! Just like our earlier entry Anti-Spell Fragrance, this fully interrupts the stream of any spell-heavy Deck. Paying 700 LP each Standby Phase is a dangerous technique for anyone, therefore why Imperial Order is a card particularly for skilled gamers!
