* By Fusion Summoning Sanwitch with this card and "Witch of the Black Forest" while they are both on the field, it is possible to trigger their effects and search two monsters. This can be used to get the "Forbidden One|Exodia" pieces faster, for instance. Also, De-Fusion could be used to return both "Witch" and this card to the field in order to set-up their effects again and search more monsters.
This card can be Special Summoned by the effect of "Tour Guide From the Underworld". Then, both monsters can be used to perform a Link Summon. This card's effect can then be used to search a Hand Trap, that are commonly activated on the opponent's turn, like Maxx "C", "Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring", Effect Veiler, etc.
