  • You can Tribute Summon this card by using Traps you control, or Monsters you control.
  • Destroys all Spells and Traps your opponent controls when this monster is Normal Summoned.
  • Powerful ATK stats.


  • Cannot Special Summon other monsters except “HERO” monsters, during the turn its effect was activated.


  • This monster is recommended in Destiny HERO decks because of their proven draw power and Special Summon ability.
  • You can also use A Hero Emerges to Special Summon this monster from your Hand, but its effect will not be activated.
  • Using Vision HERO Vyon’s effect to search out this monster, banish Vision HERO Witch Raider from your Graveyard to search for Polymerization, and you can use Escape from the Dark Dimension to Special Summon Vision HERO Witch Raider from the Banished zone.

Recommended Traps

Using traps that are also considered monsters will grant you huge advantage due to the ability to quickly swarm the Field with enough Tributes for Vision HERO Witch Raider. Powerful Rebirth is another useful Trap to Special Summon a level 4 or lower monster from your Graveyard, and then be used as one of the Tributes to Summon Vision HERO Witch Raider.

Alternative Summon

You can pay 2000 LP to directly Normal Summon this monster to the Field, and subsequently destroy all Spell/Trap cards your opponent controls.

Possible Combos

If you are using Vision HERO Witch Raider in Elemental Hero Deck, you can use O-Oversoul to Special Summon Elemental HERO Neos from your Graveyard to the Field for potential OTK. You can use HERO’s Bond to Special summon 2 level 4 or lower “Elemental HERO” monsters from your hand, after you have Normal Summoned Vision HERO Witch Raider. If you are playing Fusion Elemental HERO deck, you can Fusion Summon Elemental HERO Neos Knight to potentially clear off 2 of your opponent’s monster in 1 battle phase, making way for Vision HERO Witch Raider to direct attack. If you are using Vision HERO Witch Raider in Destiny Hero Deck, you can use D-Spirit to Special Summon 1 level 4 or lower “Destiny HERO” monster from your hand, while having Vision HERO Witch Raider on your Field. You can Fusion Summon Vision HERO Trinity to attack 3 times in a single Battle Phase, potentially wiping out all your opponent’s monsters.

Can anyone tell me why it’s effect doesn’t work when I normal summon it?
I tribute 2 backrow and the effect just doesn’t work upon summon...
No special summons conducted, never seems to have worked for me.

Usually, the very first question anyone would ask when someone has a trouble with Witch Raider, is this:

Did you Special Summon a non-HERO monster before Tribute Summoning this card?

Sometimes it feels like she is the real ace of my deck instead of Anki.

So my question is... Is there another card similar to Witch Raider? Is there another special summon using traps like this one? Just wondering because I have 3 of these but I'm finally getting around to leveling Odion and running a lot more traps/monster traps than I normally do.

Uria, special summon by sending face up cont trap cards.

Hamon, special summon by sending face up cont spell cards.
Wetlands have brought this girl back u.u lolz, it's the 3rd time I encounter this one in rankeds. I think Im going to start playing wild tornado.
A really fun duel to play is user her as the boss in a Paleozoic-focused deck. Not especially consistent, but fun.

Half the time I summon her, she doesn't destroy all of the opponent's spells/traps. Is it a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

well, if only they could write it properly like this effect can only activate if no monster was specially summoned
people put this into their amazoness deck just to counter anti-trap

I use it in masked hero deck and it works fine if i didnt get hey trunade early enough
So you can't use the effect in the same turn you special summon a monster, but you can use Mask Change twice in one turn. Doesn't seem right.

.....because Mask Change summons a HERO monster.

Read Witch Raider's text again :)

You cannot Special Summon monsters during the turn you activate this effect, except "HERO" monsters.
Makes no sense that you can't chain cards to this effect.
