Analysis

Suppressor Mage introduces a new type of floodgate unit, TD/OD abilities instead of special summons. Its primary value comes from turning off abilities from a much wider variety of decks than the special summon deniers, but since the units can still come into play they'll be able to clear Suppressor Mage off the board in combat to prevent further interference.

Its other notable trait is the Damage Reversal, able to flip face down one of your opponent's damage. While this ability is far more niche, against decks that use cards like Schrödinger's Cat or March of Darkness this ability can be very powerful by removing ideal targets from your opponent's options.

One last trait of note is the card fits into the colors typically used by last set's 1. A - Apprentice set spam strategy. While its been nerfed heavily by the improvements to hand rulers and the significant increase in anti-set effects, many of the new set removal is either or , so the deck might be able to adapt by carrying units like Suppressor Mage or Zetsuya, Master Onmyoji.
