Support

From Yugipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Support is an unofficial term for an interaction in which a card specifically affects cards with a particular property in some way beneficial to the player who possesses the supported card. For example, "The Warrior Returning Alive" adds 1 Warrior-Type monster from its controller's Graveyard to their hand, thus it supports Warrior-Type monsters.

The most obvious example of support is for archetypes, but support cards may also provide support for Attributes, Types, or monsters with a certain Level, Rank, ATK, or DEF, among other groups of cards.

Support is not just limited to card effects; support can also occur in activation requirements, costs, Materials, conditions, and Summoning procedures.

If a card instead affects the possessor of a card(s) with the specified property in a negative way, the interaction is referred to as anti-support. For example, "Acid Rain" destroys all Machine-Type monsters on the field, thus it anti-supports Machine-Type monsters.
