Now, maybe this is just me, and maybe I shouldn't be revealing this either, but I think Death Spin is probably the dumbest spirit card to put in a PvP deck unless you have some spirit banes going on. You're basically just asking me to punch you in the face, really hard.

Every time I can remember that someone's pulled it against me or a team of mine, it doesn't go well for them.

Death Spin is a cool card! Maybe it would be bad against a regular guy, but against a summonturtler, it just stacks up more summons for me to flush down the toilet.

Just fyi, once you have the severing slicers and the mana ruptures in there, you can pretty much use any tactic to finish me off :P

Also - death spin is actually quite good against CPB, as it turns one of their normal charms into an EA, therefore reducing the CPB applied to it by 80%. That can avoid some pretty serious damage if it comes up against a S&T or the like.

Oh, and Heady - using death spin on me would give me a better chance to boost my summon durations high enough to withstand the -summons you're firing at me. It probably wouldn't make a difference with the amount you have there, but for a lesser deck it would help more than hinder me.

Don't auras trigger before the extra action the card grants you, though?

I run both Auras and CPB in my two most successful characters' decks.

Nope, that only works with Kiai because the game doesn't know you're going to have an EA yet.
