As people may or may not be aware, I like to include
a Magic and/or Trap card in weeks I select when
possible, and this week I have selected Smashing
Horn, an excellent Trap card. Simply put, we
have here, a Counter-Counter Trap (or for the
unintelligent) a Trap that Counters a Counter Trap.
This is best used against Solemn Judgment and Solemn
Warning, just for starters. But this also
works on Monster Effects. When your opponent
activates a Trap or Monster Effect that negates the
Normal or Special Summon of a Monster, you counter
with this, and said card is negated and destroyed.
If you aren't maining this, I'd side at least one.
It may be tech, but it's awesome.
4/5 both Formats
Today's card is yet another downgraded version of a
card we already have, except with one minor
advantage. Smashing Horn stops the opponent from
negating your summons, and unlike Seven Tools of the
Bandit, it can stop a monster. This means you can
stop Thunder King Rai-Oh and Steelswarm Roach, but
that's pretty much it. Use Seven Tools of the Bandit
and you can stop other traps, too.
But this is too little too late. Cards like Solemn
Judgment and Solemn Warning aren't much of a threat
any more because of Heavy Storm + 3 Mystical Space
Typhoon. You'll almost always be able to blow those
cards up before they can stop your summons--and they
opponent will probably destroy Smashing Horn before
it can negate them negating your summon.

Tomorrow: This card is wonderful.
Smashing Horn is a waste of a secret rare,
similar to Mystical Refpanel. It’s a counter for
anything that destroys the normal or special summon
of a monster. It says no to the Solemn Brigade, if
Judgement is used on a summon, as well as Thunder
King or possibly Doom Caliber Knight if DCK’s effect
is used on something like a Tengu or Lonefire. This
card is quite situational, as most times any duelist
using this card will be waiting for solemn warning
to counter it. Mystical Space Typhoon at 3 and Heavy
at 1, better just place this card in the binder and
hope that somebody wants it.
