I'm thinking it's been YEARS since we looked at
Mirror Force, in fact, I could be the only reviewer
who has looked at it. That being said, seriously,
this is ALL you need to know...
You play this, period...
Would you believe we haven't rated this card in 5
Mirror Force is being dropped from a lot of decks
these days, and I don't really see why. In the
No-Storm age, you can drop 4 cards in the back row
and end your turn. Mirror Force would love to be one
of them. You need to run only the deadliest traps,
and although it's better to stop the summon than the
attack, you can only use two Bottomless Trap Holes,
one Solemn Judgment, and as many Solemn Warnings as
you can until your wallet/heart gives out (usually
two, if you're Bill Gates).
While some people are ditching Mirror Force, I've
ditched Torrential Tribute. I like to keep monsters
out on the field and use nasty flip effects, so I
prefer to take out my opponent's field, and just
that. Even netting one monster with Mirror Force
means it's done its job, and it's useful in more
situations than Torrential is.
5/5, after all these years.
Art: Should only be allowed in foil >:(
Fun Fact: If you use a common Mirror Force, I'll
yell "COMMONER" at you.
Mirror Force, an old but very good trap,
continues our Dawn of Xyz week. This is a very
simple trap, but we all know that simple can go a
long way in this game. When ever an opponents
monster attacks you can punish them for
overextending by activating this trap and destroying
all attack position monsters. It is a staple trap
that you will find in any line up for a deck. There
is not much to say that most don’t already know
about this card.
Everyone and their mother should know what Mirror
Force is. One of the most heralded cards since its
release in Metal Raiders. It was amazing back then,
and a few reprints later, it's still just as good.
Admittedly there are some more popular cards now
that are counters (Stardust Dragon, Shi En, Reborn
Tengu, the revival of Seven Tools of the Bandit),
but they shouldn't deter you from playing such a
game-changing card. People still played Heavy Storm
because it was THAT good.
Traditional: 3.5/5 (Not sure how much attacking
goes on in here, but I'm sure it's still good)
