  • 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.
If opponent use mirror wall and I use this card twister during damage step would my monster attack also be halved?

it actually states the exact opposite;during the damage step you can activate traps and quick spells/mons yes,if your opponent activates the mirror wall you can chain a twister.It will result in a instant switch from halved to normal attk and then the damage step will end according to its regular outcome.this happens because the mirror wall effect lasts until the trap is on the field.

In my experience twister does not counter the mirror wall effect. If you have two monsters and you attack with the first, this one will be destroyed and afterwards the twister will come into effect and you can freely attack with your second. So my understanding is you CAN activate it in the damage step to destroy a spell or trap but never to counter its effect once it has been activated.

Yes..It can counter Mirror wall..Already watching yutube...Mirror wall eff does not active since it destroyed first by twister
This card does not activate when my opponent use trap jammer. I understand that it can destroy the card but does not negate the activation, but no pop up came up though. I thought it was a quick play card. This card is useless if I can't negate any effect. I rather get de spell which does not cost 500hp and combine it with magic jammer instead.

trap jammer is a counter trap, you cant chain anything except a counter trap to another counter trap, rolls eyes

Obviously the op is a newbie, young person or just has difficulty understanding certain game mechanics, too bad the community sucks and just rolls eyes at everyone who don't understand the game
Opponent activated a metalmorph during his main phase. I had twister in my hand. It gave me no option to use twister. Then opponent switched to battle phase. Still no option to use twister. Then he attacked me and still no option to use twister. Wtf?

Quick play spells like twister can only be activated on your opponents turn if they are already face down on the field. while you can activate them from your hand during your own turn, your opponents turn is a different story.

Setting quick play spells can be a game changer. When your options are limited or you're baiting, set em

cant activate magic cards from the hand ON THE OPPONENTS turn, duh
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.

Use trap jammer
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.
So how can I get this card now?

Get Wild Tornado. It is way better. Don't go crying over The Ultimate Rising.

Wild tornado is crap unless you use storm or use harpie decks. You can't destroy field spell with wild tornado so it's pretty much garbage.
Twister cannot be activated when a continuous trap is activated?

Wild Tornado can't destroy field spells. Wild Tornado is alright if you don't have Divine Wrath to counter field clears though.
If my opponent activade mirror wall I can't chain with twister. This automatically makes mirrorwall much stronger than it should be. No wonder that mirror wall is overused. The bug should be fixed as soon as possible in my opinion!

You can only activate twister in battle step (declare battle), and mirror wall can be activated in damage step (which is deeper). Thats why you cant twister them, unless they pay 2000 LP for make it longer

If mirror wall (or any other battle trap)is giving you headaches then you might wanna swap twister for trap jammer
errr... i don't know if the rules change based on country, but i'm from Brazil and this card here can only be activated if the opponent have 3 card on their trap/Magic card field... and it doesn't cost any LP to activate.
