Good ol' Circus Trick... making everyone question their sanity ever since the Duel Links app came out. Just be happy that deck doesn't use Zero Gravity and No Entry.

Dear customer,
If you are struggling against this trap card then everything is going as planned.
Indeed, this trap was made to promote Karakuri cards spread across many boxes.

Please, build yourself a Karakuri meta deck and enjoy playing against this trap card.

Have a fun time farming for hours.

Thank you for playing Duel Links.
Best regards.

Anyone else miss the days of making hard reads on this card by having a reliable attacker in defense mode during your battle phase?

Stall burn is the most universally loved deck of Yugioh. Everywhere I go there’s someone asking for mass support for itx3
How is this card still affected my Silent Swordsman on the battle phase I use Silent Sword Slash to make him immune to all other card effects???

Is this a bug or intended?

Either they chained it to your Silent Sword Slash, or they did it in another turn. It's not unaffected by card effects at the time in either scenario.

Definitely the same turn. First he activated a Draining Shield and it would definitely go through so he secondly activated this Windstorm card. Now I read somewhere that it affects "Effect Immune Cards" because it does not target the card but affect the field instead. That would explain it if this works just like the Curse of Anubis card.

If they were chained to your Silent Sword Slash, they still works because they resolved before Silent Sword Slash.

Also, Etaqua does not target, but it affect monsters, not the field.

You should have activated SSS in response to Windstorm, not at the beginning of the Battle Phase.

Either modded APK or, Pegasus skill extra extra
This card is too good to be R. Heck, lots of versatile cards are R, and lots of useless cards are UR. Way to go konami!

It's R because it can't be obtained by other ways aside from leveling up Mai.

Shouldn't that make it an UR then

The rarity of the level-up exclusive cards are pretty arbitrary. They're most often Rare, but also come in UR (Fossil Dig, Toon Kingdom, Sorcerer of Dark Magic, etc.), Super (DNA Surgery, Copycat, Magnet Reverse and many, MANY others) and Common (Relieve Monster, Gift of the Mystical Elf, Feather Wind, etc.), too.

Which is why calling it an R because it's unobtainable in any other way is kind of a flawed logic.
Should also mention that this card works better in PVP, when dueling the AI, they often Set their monsters when we have a strong monster on the field, making this card useless.
is this card still available i havent seen it at the trader in a long long time..

Didn't get option to use trap jammer on this card in battle phase :/ any idea why not?

did you try to activate trap jammer in the same turn you set it?

trap jammer only works if its a trap targeting a single monster. this card targets your opponents monster field not an individual monster
