That's such a waste when you precisely had one monster and decide to activate the mirror wall, your opponent will not attack twice
And who said females are only good for making sandwitches

Read the card description again:

Yeah i'm having a similar issue. Twice in my last match i was attacked and given no option to activate the card, but when i turned on auto duel the AI used the card when i was attacked a 3rd time. Made no sense.

Folks, the card basically attempts to trigger at the VERY LAST SECOND when the opponent attacks, like trying to use Inspiration/Reinforcements to buff your monster. It WILL ask you to trigger if you aren't say spamming your Back button. I've never had a problem w/ this card once I learn when it will attempt to trigger.
Seem good for subtitute mirror waijo
Definitely will use. Budget mirror wall just like security orb is a budget econ.

Security Orb is good if you run Diskblade Rider.
I see this card as a good alternative than Mirror Wall... Mirror Wall is predictable (just like SRH or Econ) because at each phase or action, you have to say "no" to its activation. With this card, the latency happens only when your opponent attacks.

Of course... But there is a risk of forgetting to turn it on when you need them ... (dsorry for my English)

Riryoku - almost always wins
Half Counter - doesn't work when attacking monster has 2x or more the attack of the defending monster.
poor's mirror wall... not increase def.. but in dmg calc we cant change the BPosition easly
The artwork though.
This seems nice
