Only n i g g e r f a gs use this card.
This card need limiting. Not for for people going first.
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?

^This mean they failed to OTK that turn lol. Pretty much everything most deck needed to counter back during the next turn.
A difference between normal spell vs quick spell or trap card is really affect the duel lol.

Also why does it matter when this card is not Once per turn? If all monsters on the field are already destroyed. Then you obviously can't activate the second one. Unless the monsters your opponent controls has a floating effect that special summon a monster(s) after being destroyed. But do you really want to discard your entire resource on your hand? You wouldn't even able to do a comeback next t

It's very rare for Blue eyes decks to OTK turn 2.
Even if they wiped your monsters on the field. They to deal with backrow cards too.

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
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.
