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
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.
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.
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
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
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.
