When do dodge, redirect or repulsion field reveal in arena?

during the declare attack step (as written) or during the avoid attack step (as in arena cards)?

 they reveal as written. This way a dodge and a glancing blow can be used In tandem. I believe. Not in front of the cards right now. Regardless of the second part of the answer, they reveal during declare attack as written.

Yes, they Reveal as written, which is known to be different to the point an Arena-written card would trigger. This is known and intended (or at least knowingly accepted), and as Romeo says, will let you layer defences.

Repulsion field does not reveal during avoid attack step even in arena. It says cancel attack it is not a defense.

next question: fumble and repulsion field

my oponent attacks, I reveal fumble on him, his attack "doesn't affect me".
does my repulsion field trigger? (it should, since I'm attacked, but if I'm not affected...)

Repulsion Field would trigger. But luckily, Fumble is optional so you can just choose not to reveal it.

If fumble had not been optional, it still would not be revealed. Fumble makes an attack miss, and repulsion field makes an attack be cancelled. Correct me if I'm wrong, but cancelling an attack happens before it can hit or miss.

fumble is after the declare step, repulsion field too.

my hope was that fumble writes: "the attack doesn't affect the target".
out of that, both cards are revealed at the same moment.
