Today we’re going to talk about Heavy Dust Storm, a new trap from COTD(Code of the Duelist)
??? Sajin no Ooarashi (Heavy Dust Storm)
Normal Trap Card
You cannot conduct your Battle Phase during the turn you activate this card.
(1) Target up to 2 Spell/Trap Cards on the field; destroy those cards.
The name takes the 1st part of the Japanese Dust Tornado name [???(Saijin no)]???(outatsumaki) and The Japanese Heavy Storm name ??(Ooarashi)
While simple, it has a strong effect that can clear up your opponent’s backrow effortlessly. A twin twisters, but in trap form and without the need to discard a card. Not conducting the battle phase can be circumvented by activating it during your opponent’s turn so you can clear their backrow and go on your turn without worrying about Dimensional Barrier/Solemns etc. Note that the card can also destroy cards on your side of the field, so you can destroy your own S/T that have effects when destroyed and/or sent to the graveyard and combo them off. eg. Artifact Monsters, Geartown
Usage: You can play this card virtually in any deck. If you dislike the discarding cost for twin twister, then it’d be a good idea to add this card in your deck. This card will be more attractive in TCG as backrow is more predominant there than in OCG (OCG has Harpie’s Feather Duster).
That’s all for today! Thanks for your time reading this small Article!
