I don't need a Drytron Ritual Monster but while the artwork looks like quite the spectacle to see, it's masking how mediocre this card is as a whole.

Can't even name a single Ritual that would make using Machines and only Machines worthwhile, especially when you need their ATKs to be at or higher than the Ritual Monster's. This also hurts the Deck it was made for.

There is very little chance for you to have enough Level 2 or 1 monsters in your hand and certainly not on the field to achieve the 3rd effect of this card and even then it only applies to your opponent's Special Summoned monsters. What a disappointment for such a strong monster.
