  • Destroys 1 set Spell/Trap on the Field.
  • Can be banished from your Graveyard to destroy 1 face-up Spell/Trap, during your Main Phase.


  • Not Quick-play Spell, cannot be used during opponent’s turn.
  • You cannot banish this card during the same turn it was sent to the Graveyard.


  • This is a great Spell/Trap removal card as it handles both set and face-up Spell/Traps, even though it needs to be activated under different conditions.


You can use Galaxy Cyclone on these cards when they were set by your opponent, in order to destroy them (it is still destroyed if they were to chain their activation to your Galaxy Cyclone). You can banish Galaxy Cyclone later on to destroy these cards if they activate other copies of it.

U can only activated it in ur turn
Part of the trifecta
I still can't figure out... I had divine punishment on the field and my opponent was able to banish galaxy cyclone from the grave and destroy my sanctuary of the sky... but I should have been able to use my counter trap! Yes? No? I'm honestly confused why I didn't have the option to use it.

It's because the GY effect of Galaxy Cyclone is NOT an activation of a card. You don't activate a card to get that effect.
The Good Boy.
For me it's basically the anti-Backrow-🔥 card, eating Treacherous, E.Con, and Wall of D for breakfast.
Okay, this card is too OP. I used Cursed Seal of the Forbidden Spell when a Vagabond tried to use it. However, he was still able to use the same one I stopped from the grave to get rid of my Ancient Gear Castle. Cursed Seal's supposed to sop people from ever using a card again, yet it can be used from the grave after getting sealed.

I realized I mispelled "stop". Still, this card defies logic.

It makes you unable to activing it, you know, from hand to board, if an spell has the power to make X thing directly from deck or graveyard, then it can
Rate 7/10
I always thought this card was not really that good because it was way too slow, I mean, it's not even a quick spell like cosmic is. But since i've destroyed spellbook of fate and even a lot of tth with it, I guess it has some merit.
i have 2 cosmic cyclone is this better than cosmic should i get atleast one of this?

I thinks cosmic cyclone is much better than galaxy cyclone as the former banishes making you avoid secondary effects of some cards that activates when they are sent to the GY

Situational. If you're running fast decks or using skills that require lp loss, then Cosmic Cyclone is better. If you're running slower decks, then Galaxy Cyclone would be better as it can remove or force backrow cards twice.

FYI an example of a relatively faster deck, U.A.

You can cosmic cyclone, then Cyber Style into tribute summon.

Cyber style is no longer for tribute summon
Is there a reason to grab 2 galaxy cyclones or is 1 enough? How future proof is this card?

I can't say which one is good for sure. But the best backrow removal right now are cosmic cyclone and galaxy cyclone. Both have their pros and cons. If you have no cosmic, then you may as well get 2 galaxy. Think about their pros and cons and you can decide which one to get with dream ticket.

Meh. As a generalist card, both are meh. Straight flush is more effective as general tech, and Vision Raider is more effective on some themed-decks.

^ you must be a troll or noob. Or both.

Straight flush is trap, wait for a turn, and only works when opponent set 3 cards. Vision raider is more effective "in some themed decks", and you says it's better as a general tech? Smh
y is it still destroyed when one chain the trap with galaxy cyclone?? It said explicitly destroying only set card, chaining it make it faced up.

It says "destroy it" and not "Destroy that target".

To elaborate

"it" = the target does not need to be in the same condition during resolution

"the target" = the target must be still in the same condition during resolution

Language is important. You find that out as you get older
Finally got this card. Now with this, cosmic cyclone, and dust tornado, I feel like I got enough backrow removal cards. I thought about heading over to pvp for a few matches before the maintenance starts. But now I'll just wait until tomorrow when the nerfs happen.

I used Shiranui, need luck to get the red coin toss tho
Yes, just listen to your credit card and make some purchases. Whatever you buy you cannot go wrong.
So bad it's too late for red-eyes darkness dragon, it won't see play. My favorite card...
