  • One of the few cards that remove a spell/trap cards in current card pool.
  • Easy to use due to quick-spell type.


  • 500 LP to use and can't deal with a face-down card.
  • Does not negate spell effects since it only destroys.


  • A good way to deal with field spell cards since your opponent will no longer get the advantage over you.
  • Can cancel Fusion Gate's effect during enemy turn to prevent them from fusion summoning.

When you don't have Double CYclone to destroy Geartown.

De-Spell is only useful to destroy Geartown/Fortress though, and only on your own turn since it's a normal Spell.

Twister has a bit more use, due to being able to destroy face-up Traps as well, and is a Quick-Play (you can make a surprise play on opponent's turn by Setting it).

I prefer Twister over Double Cyclone. Bad AG players have 3xDouble Cyclone so whenever facing AG, I just dont set any S/T and only special summon to play around the castle. So many times my enemy didnt even summon one Reactor Dragon

Yep, smarter AG players would know carrying just Double Cyclone is a terrible idea.

Twister is way better, but it seems like most people don't want to open Ultimate Rising because it's too old. So they play double cyclone, galaxy cyclone or even De-Spell.
another of kaiba's classics
I used Champion's vigilance on my opponents twister to prevent him from destroying my mountain field spell. My spell was saved but twister dealt and it dealt 500 damage to MY life points. Anyone else seen this glitch?

You're the one that needs to read buddy.
He said that he used champion's vigilance on the opponent's twister. Using twister -500 from the USER of the spell card, not the opponent.

So if what he said is true, it's wierd.
Poor man's MST...
Twister doesn't negate, but it will destroy any continuous spells (Including field spells and equip spells) or continuous traps before they take effect.

So basically, if it's anything that stays on the field, twister will take priority.

AKA it counters the crap out of mirror wall
Some guy
Twin-Twister (the upgrade to this card) will be a new card from a new box.
So big problem here. At times when twister is set on the field and I'm in the battle phase I can get the option to activate twister right after my opponent activates mirror wall as a chain effect. Other times I don't get the option to chain activate until after the attack concluded. Is this a glitch or is there a reason you can activate twister in response to the mirror wall? Any help appreciated.

Mirror Wall can be activated in either Battle Step or Damage Step, while Twister can only be activated at Battle Step. If you can activate Twister in response to a Mirror Wall, it just means that your opponent is bad.

Wild Tornado can't destroy field spells. Wild Tornado is alright if you don't have Divine Wrath to counter field clears though.
How can I get Twister now? Ultimate Rising is no longer available...

Use de spell, wild tornado, storm, sergeant electro, xing zhen hu, straight flush, swarm of locust, spritualism, amazoness sage, toy magician, harpies hunting ground, twister is not the only one that can handle backrow
