Mirror Force

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...

5/5
Art: 5/5

Mirror Force

Would you believe we haven't rated this card in 5 years?

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.

Mirror Force

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)
Advanced: 4.5/5
