Default Flaunt question

I have a question about the Flaunt rule. I know flaunt abilities can be activated on your opponent's turn (effectively as a mischief card). But the card 'Skeezix the Ill-Suited' (which is a 5,5,5 card) reads "Flaunt - Draw 1 card. Then discard this'. How can you ever use him in battle as a monster? Surely once he is hired, his ability triggers and he is discarded before he can dish out any damage?

Ordinarily yes. But a flaunt in a specific action. It's not a normal monster ability that takes place once flipped. It has to be used while still in your hand. Once a hired he has no special ability.

Trapt is correct. Essentially, Flaunt is optional. The cost to activate the Flaunt is to reveal the card then discard the card.

If the Flaunt ability is on a monster card, and you hire the monster, then itís just a regular monster. And the Flaunt is not activating cuz you are not paying its cost.
