It's not like any monster can attack in face down defense position (yet), right?

it sounds stupid and would create a lot of ruling issues so I don't think it will ever happen
I got all my harpie needs in the first half of the box twice in a row but still no vortex. Should I reset again or should I dig so I can have 2?

You will not need more than 1. Also vortex will soon get powercrept.
Btw you are lucky btw. I got harpie perfumer teice in the last 10 packs. After that I never reset cuz soon harpies will get a hammer banlist hit.

Konami should learn from Kaiba, in Battle City arc, he banned all the card that destroy opponent's card.

Yeah, which is why Yugi had Mystic Box, De-Spell, Exile of the Wicked, Ragnarok and Dust Tornado in his Battle City Deck. ;p

Battle City only banned burn cards and easy mass destruction cards lol, not all card that destroys with effect.

Cards that destroy only 1 other card, or has certain requirement to destroy all cards thus balancing the effect, are still allowed.
This fcking card should be banned immediately

Kind of sacky, makes going second more OP than it already was. This card had decent usage when looking at the recent KC cup data. Wouldn’t be surprised if it gets limited for the same reason as TTH just so meta decks don’t have access to it.
This trash is not even useful for dueling npc, the AI never uses it

Doesn't work in gold and below either everyone just equips power of the guardians to everything making vortex useless

PotG is only useful if it already has a counter on it, though.
If I activate lightning vortex on my opponent Spirit dragon of white, can he Tag out into azure eyes and make his blue-eyes indestructible?

No. He needs to do it BEFORE you activate lightning vortex

Will we get a new Main box when Arc v comes out?
-Thank you for playing Duel Links.
If Shinchu L is a drop....we better be getting 3 copies of Shinchu R as level up reward.
Yeah, being able to use Poly or other fusion spells for Evil Hero fusions isn't really an ad...
