because it can be activated any time unlike trap jammer which can only be activaved in damage step
After the recent increase in LP for pvp, I have seen it randomly in my opponents decks and it caught me off guard. Useful for most traps everyone’s running around with like treacherous trap hole, wall of d, and amazoness onslaught.
Are you sure they didn’t have Mirage Dragon out or something? Because otherwise, it should.
This is why magic drain almost never works. Who doesn't keep there valuable spell cards in their hand? Point proven magic drain is not worth it. Dude activated it to stop my Econ and I threw out my black pendant and ended the duel. Might as well use magic jammer. Better all
I always get a smile when I see someone running Drain. It gives me a -1, but it also gives me a chance to at least do some damage or destroy a monster.
Why would you even use magic drain. That's why it's a rare in real yugioh cuz it's garbage lol. 7 tools is a real ultra rare for a reason because it's that good. And if you think trap jammer is better, then stick with trap jammer and watch how you keep getting stomped 7 tools stops any trap for a 1000. Id rather take the more versitile card and that's 7 tools
