I'm a fan of this card.  It looks like a card that can be a little tricky to use, since it requires a discard (as well as having quality Continuous Trap Cards).  It is, at least on surface level, a minus one.  Let's just assume you're only going to retrieving the card from the graveyard and not the hand (unless you want to minus two).  But it has strong potential to recycle floodgates like Skill Drain and Vanity's Emptiness.  It is also chainable, which is a huge plus.  The opponent can waste their removal on this card, and then you can safely set the real threat from your graveyard.  The real question is what deck can be best able to use this card (mostly lower tier ones, I assume), but once you have that figured out, I think this card has good potential.
 
3.5/5

I love cards with very clear text. In fact, I'll just copy the text of Booby Trap E, the Normal Trap: " Discard 1 card; Set 1 Continuous Trap Card from your hand or Graveyard to your field. That Set card can be activated during this turn." If you have a Continuous Trap Card in your grave, you could even Discard a Continuous Trap as the cost and set it all in one activation. This essentially would bait out most Trap removal, like Twin Twister. In particular, against Twin Twister, this card is great because the cost is the same and would let you gain advantage. Try it out. Saving Vanity's Emptiness from the grave could be very powerful and certainly unexpected. 

Score: 3.5/5 The cost is a bit high, but I dig this Trap.
Art: 4/5 It looks like a Trap to me.
 
P.S. Happy Birthday to Me! And Happy Birthday to anyone else born today!

Moving slightly off the Raidraptor track, we have Booby Trap E, a card that can fit in just about any deck. I say this, because there's at least one Continuous Trap card in every deck... That, of course, being Call of The Haunted. But for those of you who rely on more than Call, this trap can come in handy. By discarding one card, you can not only set a Continuous Trap card outside your Main Phase, and activate it almost immediately, but most importantly, this works for a Continuous Trap IN THE GRAVEYARD! I doubt many people will realize the significance of this one effect: you're getting a free trap that you've already played, or tried to play but it got nuked by MST or something. That is pretty cool.
 
Unfortunately, this card only works for Continuous Traps; had it been any trap effected by it, then I would certainly give it a high score. It's the limitations that really dampens its awesomeness. Sorry, E, you tried. But in the end, your only real ally is Call.
 
Score: 2/5 (3/5 for trap heavy decks)
 
P.S. What does the "E" stand for?
