  Twister Fish
McDonald's Promo

Card # M1/Y2

Date Reviewed: 06.21.05

Constructed Average Rating: 3.5
Limited Average Rating: 3.5

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.

I am writing this right after the last card as I really need to get the cotds for this week finished and we are reviewing twister fish who is a mcdonalds promo as are the rest of the cards this week and the week there were 5 cards to review had to be the week I went on vacation. Lol.  Again, no stats.  Twister fish is another meh card as it is nothing that special.  Its race is bad and so is the cost to pwr ratio at 5:3000.  What redeems it is the fact that it is a shield trigger.  Being that and a creature is great and I like shield trigger creatures.
constructed: 3.5/5

Mana Generated:1
Rules Text:
Sheild Trigga! (private joke ^^)
Power: 3000
Type: Creature
Drizer's Flavor Text (For cards that don't have them):
Flavor Text: doesn?t really matter

Hey everybody! I thought since I haven?t done anything since that little article, I?ll do cotd, that and the fact that I only had a half day of school and this was my last day. W00t. Let?s review

Good Points of the Card

-Shield Trigger
-*long silence*

Constructed Side

This card isn?t all that great In my opinion. 5 for 3k isn?t really bad if it comes with a worthwhile effect, but it?s only shield trigger. Since it is blue, there are extremely better choices for this such as Aqua Surfer, spiral gate, or even Hunter Cluster. That?s all I have to say about it.

Limited Side

I?ll quit dm if you pull this card out in limited.

Bad Points of the card

-High Cost for low power
-No double breaker

Overall Standings:

I think there are a lot better choices

Limited: 0
Art: 2.5/5

School?s out 4 summa! W00T!!

Till next time,
Steven Cantrell


Sorry I haven’t been writing anything lately. My family went on vacation last week which meant no computer access. Look forward to the usual tourny report after this weekend though. Hopefully I can beat Justin Florio to overtake him in DCI points. Both of us will probably end up in the Top 4 of Galactic Quest’s Circuit event in a few weeks too. Winning that trip to Los Angeles sure seems like a nice way to end my Duel Masters career. ^_^


Today’s review continues with the McDonalds promo cards. Since there are five of them, we are doing one each day this week. Mine will be shorter than usual today due to the simplicity of Twister Fish. Short, sweet, and to the point...


Twister Fish

Type: Creature
Civilization: Water

Race: Gel Fish

Mana Cost: Five
Rules Text:

Shield Trigger (When this creature is put into your hand from your shield zone, you may summon it immediately for no cost.)  

Flavor Text:

“They make great pets. But they make even better warriors.” -Tropico

Power: 3000

Set: McDonalds’s Promo


Twister Fish defines the word mediocre. There are just so many better options available. Aqua Jolter and Aqua Surfer are both superior if you really want to have a shield trigger creature. Corile and even Aqua Knight are higher quality drops on turn five. His attack power is overcosted, not to mention vulnerable to Searing Wave. His pathetic race is completely insignificant. There is simply no reason to use Twister Fish.


Rating: 1.5/5

Step away from the Twister Fish and put your hands where I can see them! Do NOT even consider putting this guy into a deck. Unless there is some incredible Gel Fish evolution in the future, just stash Twister Fish in the trade binder and let him collect dust. Everything will be alright if we just ignore him completely.
