Lightning Storm is one of the most anticipated cards from Ignition Assault, a mash-up of Raigeki and Harpie's Feather Duster that's set to become a Side Deck staple. It's going to change how we view going first and going second, and in the new format where trap cards are so much stronger, it'll be an important part of the competitive balance.

So how do you beat it? And how do your options stack up against other removal cards you'll want to prepare for, stuff like Twin Twisters, Evenly Matched, Red Reboot and Denko Sekka? There are lots of choices that can stop some of those cards, but very few universal answers. If you want to find the right options for you, then Doug has the answers you're looking for.
