Mystical Refpanel List

Last Updated: July 17, 2019.

Mystical Refpanel
Normal Trap
Activate only when a Spell Card that targets 1 player is activated. The effect of that Spell Card is applied to the other player instead.

The purpose of this article is to provide a comprehensive list of cards that Mystical Refpanel can be used against (or with). This list is not official and may not be 100% complete, but it includes and excludes any Spell Card that you are going to find at a tournament.

“Targeting a player” is somewhat of an absurd notion, but it keeps Refpanel from being used against all but the most generic types of effects. Also, what isn’t mentioned on the card (but explained in its rulings), it can only be chained directly to the activation of a Normal or Quick-Play Spell. Therefore, it cannot be chained to a Continuous, Equip, Field, or Ritual Spell, or their effects, or the effects of Normal/Quick-Play Spells that aren’t being activated (such as the last effect of Miracle Synchro Fusion). But memorizing these rules defeats the purpose of this article, so here is the list itself.

If you’re wondering why a specific card isn’t listed that you feel should be, in general these are cards you cannot chain Mystical Refpanel to:

– Any card that targets, Special Summons, destroys, or in general affects specific cards.
– Any Ritual/Field/Continuous/Equip Spell Card, or Pendulum Effect.
– Any card that searches a card from your Deck (Spellbook of Secrets, Reinforcement of the Army, etc.)
– Any card that sends cards from your Deck to the Graveyard, either from the top or chosen (Foolish Burial, That Grass is Greener, etc.)
– Any card that affects both players (Upstart Goblin, Card of Demise, etc.)

* A newer OCG ruling (11/06/14) states that Mystical Refpanel cannot be used against Mesmeric Control.
* Note that Sekka’s Light and Pendulum Halt are not included, due to specific OCG database rulings, but I cannot really think of a reason they shouldn’t be on this list other than because of those rulings. Perhaps Konami thinks stunning your opponent’s Spell/Traps for the rest of the Duel is too strong.
