Here is the reason this card sucks ass: Aside from the VERY SPECIFIC trigger for it to be special summoned, half of the monster destruction triggers on this game (Those from Bandit Keith gun machines) can't be countered by this card.
Why? Because they're not guaranteed to destroy the monster. It's the same with Stardust Dragon, the guy can't activate his effect against any of Keith machines on the IRL game.
Blame Konami, but ATM the card is absolutely useless.
Fool... It says it doesn't specify monster destruction in order to special summon it merely says destroys a card you control, which probably means you can summon it if they go to use something like twister (assuming they take the bait)
IT'S NOT A GLITCH. I already explained why cards that work against destruction based effects won't work against chance-based cards. This has been the damn case since YEARS AGO. Sometimes I hate this playerbase, they can't possibly be this lazy as to not search for the rulings.
Effects like the ones of Dragonic Knight, Stardust Dragon, Prime Material Dragon and Destruction Jammer
cont. can't be used against chance-based cards like the Gun machines because they can only counter ACTIVATIONS. At the moment of activation is not certain that the card is going to destroy a card because it's chance-based. Search Stardust Dragon vs Snipe Hunter. I'm done spoonfeeding you idiots.
I stand corrected twister wouldn't work since its a not monster effect,regardless though it still doesn't specify monster destruction so i'm assuming if a monster effect targeted a s/t card you control then you'd be able to spec this card
Most players aren't lazy as you call them most are simply ignorant of the rulings and a lot of players may not be aware of how to find rulings (or that they even exist) why you ask?simple most yugioh players play for fun and couldn't give a rat's 🔥 about how good they or other players,so stop an elitist and have some respect for people of ALL skill levels.
Not everyone understands how rulings, negation etc work also did it ever occur to you that some of this player base probably consists of newcomers, young children and other people who may not fully understand the game? I'm sure if most people knew how to find rulings (and I'm pretty sure most people don't) which means most people are merely ignorant and not lazy
PS: I'm the fool since twister is a magic card and not a monster effect,it wouldn't work but it doesn't specify monster destruction, so im assuming if a monster effect was activated that targeted and destroyed my s/t then id be able to spec this card, perhaps testing in ygopro will reveal the answer
@Daemon Blitzkrieg don't bother talking to edgar i seriously don't understand why people like him get so upset over some not understanding some ruling which most people aren't even aware of,in my instance however i did initiate the argument so I'm the fool xD both for calling him one and not reading the card text properly
I would just like it notified that I, DB, know HOW to look up the rulings. It isn't that hard, but complicated to new players which I get. However, I've legit been preoccupied w/ the 1.5x EXP event (which Bakura is in the way off) to even test the new Card Packs. So Edgar's tirades are w/e to me, but he still shouldn't be suck a 🔥 to any & everyone. -_-
@Daemon Blitzkrieg my argument wasnt targeted at anyone in particular so im sure you are experienced enough to understand the more complicated nuances of yugioh,as you self stated however rulings are complicated to most newcomers,also as far as the average yugioh player goes most aren't even going to thinking about looking up rulings
