Heavy Storm Duster
This card seriously irritates
me. What is the argument for yet another spell/trap
removal, especially one so simple in design? We have
a massive glut of these kinds of card. Pick and
choose which you like. Now, Konami has outdone
themselves and given players a pure two-for-one for
those who are so inclined. Ignore for a moment the
fact that Japan has Harpy’s Duster and many decks
over there don’t even use it. I simply don’t
understand why they keep making generic spell and
trap removal. It’s like one per set! They killed
that side of the game a long time ago, and now
they’re just beating a dead horse, or should I say
Regardless, the brainless
stumps at Konami have given us Heavy Storm Duster,
and now I will review it. It’s good. Hot take, I
know, but what else is there to say about a card
like this? If you wanted spell and trap removal in
the past but favored plusses over speed, this is the
card for you. And since the Link format has slowed
things down considerably, this card fits right in.
It’s a joke that it was made in the first place, but
That’s about it. It’s a boring,
stupid, good card.
Future Potential: 4.5/5
Hello Pojo Fans,
Heavy Storm Duster is one of the major hype cards of
the Code of The Duelist set.
Trading your Battle Phase for up to 2 spells/traps
on the field being cleared away is more preferable
than discarding for Twin Twister. While it isn't as
quick as Twin Twister, it still allows you to plus
off of it and get around the restriction by using it
on the End Phase of your opponents turn. I don't see
much downside to playing this card. It's simple to
use, cost-free, hurts your opponent or clears away
things you don't need or want to gain advantage of
thanks to destruction, it's a great card. Any
spell(s)/trap(s) that stay on the field is dead in
this cards sights.
Speed or not, Heavy Storm Duster is a great card.
Usable in any deck, just as good (if not better)
than Twin Twister.
Art-4/5- Dust Tornado and Heavy Storm meet...that
cow is never coming down.
Until Next Time
It is always nice to look at new, generic cards.
Today, we look at a really good generic card. Heavy
Storm Duster, a mix of Heavy Storm and Dust Tornado.
Heavy Storm Duster is a Trap that allows you to
destroy up to 2 Spells/Traps on the field in
exchange for your Battle Phase that turn. Don't let
the Battle Phase part distract you from the fact
that this is a really good card. You can avoid the
Battle Phase part by using this on your opponents
turn instead of your own. Even if you have to do it
on your turn, giving up your Battle Phase could be
worth it to not get disrupted for your powerful
This is a handy card that cannot afford a Twin
Twisters discard cost. Play it if Twin Twisters
doesn't really fit in your deck and Cosmic Cyclone
or MST isn't enough for you.
