Twin Twisters

 

My #1 card of 2016 comes in at #3 on pojo’s consolidated top 10 list. The reason I placed Twin Twisters at the top of the list was simple: this spell has the greatest potential of any of the other cards released in 2016. I mean, we are talking about the card that, for the majority of decks around the world, replaced Mystical Space Typhoon, the most used (and most reprinted) card in Yu-Gi-Oh history. It’s not even close. Twin Twisters didn’t make Mystical Space Typhoon irrelevant, but for the first time in forever, MST is no longer the staple it used to be.

 

And how did this happen? Well, it turned MST into two MST’s. It’s that simple. One became two, with the added risk of needing a discard, but also the added reward of GETTING to discard, which is often a bonus to most players. And in this era of pendulum revolution, knocking out two spells/traps at a time on a consistent basis even outclasses slower Harpy’s Feather Duster. This spell card might appear in 95% of all competitive decks or side decks for the next ten years. To me, that’s something other cards probably won’t be able to do. And that’s why it’s my #1 card of 2016.

 

Advanced: 5/5

Future Potential: 5/5

It's like Mst and Heavy Storm combined.  You get mass removal, but not in a way that could cause too much card advantage.  You can use it defensively, especially to break Pendulum setups, or you can use it offensively to [usually] eliminate the chance of a trap card being sprung off at you.  Discard cost makes it fair, but you can always discard a graveyard floater.

I'm not sure if a staple exists in 2016 (I wrote an article on this subject a while back), but I guess it's what you'd call "the modern staple".

We’re down to the top 3 now. Each of these cards have had a massive impact on the game and will likely continue to do so until either they are hit or something better comes out. #3 on our list is Twin Twisters!
 
Position on my list: #3
 
I feel like this card being the third best of the year was a given, so I’m glad others felt the same way I did. Twin Twisters is unique in that while it is a stronger version of MST, it hasn’t necessarily replaced it. Twin Twisters requiring a discard cost means that not every Deck can make use of it; Pendulum Decks in particular are not very suited to use it due to their need for every card in hand to be live, and as such are better off with MST or Archfiend Eccentrick.
 
However, Twin Twisters does fit in a LOT of Decks due to so many Decks being able to reliably discard a card to the Graveyard. Between Burning Abyss, Monarch, ABC, Blue-Eyes, and Paleozoic, among others, Twin Twisters has proven itself as a staple in either the main or side of any Deck that can make use of it well. Backrow has slowly grown scarcer as the game’s pace has sped up; we are no longer in the era of 20+ Trap Decks from early 2014; most Decks don’t exceed 10 (with Paleozoic being the clear standout). As such, being able to blow out two of them immediately can be a major shift in momentum for whoever uses it. Twin Twisters also came out right as Pendulums started to rise to the top of the metagame, and it has proven to be one of the strongest answers to the mechanic; wiping out both Scales the opponent sets can be what makes or breaks the game for them.
 
Twin Twisters has proven its worth since release, and unless they make something better (and for the love of Zarc I hope they don’t), it will likely continue to be a presence in the game, just as MST has after all these years.

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Twin Twisters is #3 in our rankings for 2016.
 
The Quick-Play found itself in almost any deck either as a side option or a main deck staple, depending on the strategy behind the deck. Ditch a card to destroy up to 2 spell/trap cards on the field. Target your own cards to trigger effects or halt your opponents moves with this card. The cost is minimal when compared to the damage you can do to the strategy of your opponent. With all the spell/trap cards being played either in the backrows or Pendulum Zone, this card is a must for every duelist. Anyone can play multiple copies of this card, especially if you are trying to get cards of yours into the grave to set up more combos.
 
Is it better than MST? That is up to the player. Play this though.

It must be easy to predict the next two cards now. Maybe not the order. In any case, number 3 is Twin Twisters. This is certainly the most splashable of the cards combining utility and affordability. The cost of one discard from the hand to get rid of any two Spells or Traps on the field is low enough to have use during any part of every game. 4.3/5 is a pretty good average. I gave it a 4/5 and continue to believe that is the correct score because this card cannot win the game except under very specific circumstances. Enjoy the last few days of 2016! Don't get Two Twisted!

Twin Twisters...kinda surprised this card is so high, but in its way, rightfully so.  You discard a card and then target up to two Magic/Trap cards on the Field, and destroy them.  A 2-for2, and a very powerful one at that.  While it's no Heavy Storm, it's a balanced destruction approach, and being able to destroy your own cards can help too.  Any Deck can use this, although you're going to have an easier time using it in a Deck capable of discarding, or one that is easily able to turn your discards into advantage, and/or recycle.  Things of that nature.
