INOV-EN019
Crystron Thystvern

Rating: 2
Comments: Like the other two cards, this guy can make himself self-destruct to get help from its friends and has the highest ATK of Crystrons so far.
INOV-EN018
Crystron Smiger
WATER / Machine / Level 3 / ATK 1000 / DEF 1800
You can target 1 face-up card you control; you cannot Special Summon monsters from the Extra Deck for the rest of this turn, except Machine-Type Synchro Monsters, also, destroy that card, and if you do, Special Summon 1 "Crystron" Tuner from your Deck. You can banish this card from your Graveyard; add 1 "Crystron" Spell/Trap Card from your Deck to your hand. You can only use 1 "Crystron Smiger" effect per turn, and only once that turn.

Rating: 2
Comments: Not much to say about this guy that hasn't been said about Prasiortle but it's DEF is a bit lower and can search out the Crystron Spell/Trap Cards.
INOV-EN017
Crystron Prasiortle
WATER / Machine / Level 2 / ATK 500 / DEF 2000
You can target 1 face-up card you control; you cannot Special Summon monsters from the Extra Deck for the rest of this turn, except Machine-Type Synchro Monsters, also, destroy that card, and if you do, Special Summon 1 "Crystron" Tuner from your Deck. You can banish this card from your Graveyard; Special Summon 1 "Crystron" monster from your hand. You can only use 1 "Crystron Prasiortle" effect per turn, and only once that turn.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: His 2000 DEF better ensures you can use the effect but it's not that great of an effect since you're limited to Crystron Tuners and Machine-Type Synchro Monsters.
INOV-EN016
Crystron Citree
WATER / Machine-Type Tuner / Level 2 / ATK 500 / DEF 500
During your opponent's Main Phase or Battle Phase: You can target 1 non-Tuner monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it, but it has its effects negated (if any), and if you do, immediately after this effect resolves, Synchro Summon 1 Machine-Type Synchro Monster using only that monster and this card (this is a Quick Effect). These Synchro Materials are banished instead of being sent to the Graveyard. You can only use this effect of "Crystron Citree" once per turn.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Need another reason not to Synchro Summon during your opponent's turn? This guy banishes the Synchro Materials and also limits you to Synchro Summoning Machine-Type monsters.
INOV-EN015
Crystron Quan
WATER / Machine-Type Tuner / Level 1 / ATK 500 / DEF 500
During your opponent's Main Phase or Battle Phase: You can Special Summon 1 non-Tuner monster from your hand, but it has its effects negated (if any), and if you do, immediately after this effect resolves, Synchro Summon 1 Machine-Type Synchro Monster using only that monster and this card (this is a Quick Effect). You can only use this effect of "Crystron Quan" once per turn.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: You'd be better off just Special Summoning the non-Tuner because Synchro Summoning won't leave you with much to defend you, not to mention you cannot attack with it either and are limited to Machine-Type monster Synchros.
INOV-EN014
Flower Cardian Peony with Butterfly
DARK / Warrior-Type Tuner / Level 6 / ATK 1000 / DEF 1000
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) by Tributing 1 "Flower Cardian" monster, except "Flower Cardian Peony with Butterfly". If this card is Special Summoned: Draw 1 card, and if you do, show it, then, if it is a "Flower Cardian" monster, look at the top 3 cards of your opponent's Deck, then place them all on the top or bottom of the Deck in any order. Otherwise, send it to the Graveyard. When this card is used as Synchro Material, you can treat it and all other Synchro Materials (that have a Level) as Level 2 monsters.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: Though it too has the same lousy summning requirements and gamble effect, it is also a Tuner monster and can treat the other monsters as Level 2, which can be helpful.
INOV-EN013
Flower Cardian Maple with Deer
DARK / Warrior / Level 10 / ATK 1000 / DEF 1000
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) by Tributing 1 "Flower Cardian" monster, except "Flower Cardian Maple with Deer". If this card is Special Summoned: Draw 1 card, and if you do, show it, then, if it is a "Flower Cardian" monster, you can destroy 1 Spell/Trap Card your opponent controls. Otherwise, send it to the Graveyard.
COMMON
Rating: 1
Comments: Really? A Level 10 monster that is literally a carbon copy of Clover with Boar? It should remain on the ground with all other leaves this time of year as it's no good in anyone's Deck.
INOV-EN012
Flower Cardian Clover with Boar
DARK / Warrior / Level 7 / ATK 1000 / DEF 1000
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) by Tributing 1 "Flower Cardian" monster, except "Flower Cardian Clover with Boar". If this card is Special Summoned: Draw 1 card, and if you do, show it, then, if it is a "Flower Cardian" monster, you can destroy 1 monster your opponent controls. Otherwise, send it to the Graveyard.
COMMON
Rating: 1
Comments: A waste of a Tribute to bring out this pitiful excuse of a monster, especially since the only effect you get is a risky game of chance.
INOV-EN011
Cipher Mirror Knight
LIGHT / Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 0 / DEF 0
When a "Cipher" monster you control is destroyed by battle and sent to your Graveyard: You can discard this card; send 1 card from your hand or field to the Graveyard, and if you do, Special Summon that destroyed monster. During the End Phase, if this card is in the Graveyard because it was sent there this turn: You can add 1 "Cipher" card from your Deck to your hand. You can only use this effect of "Cipher Mirror Knight" once per turn.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: Summoning or Setting it is pretty much a last resort because those stats are pitiful and it doesn't offer anything for when it's face-up anyway, though the last effect is pretty slow.
INOV-EN010
Cipher Twin Raptor
LIGHT / Machine / Level 4 / ATK 1600 / DEF 800
If your opponent controls a face-up monster that was Special Summoned from the Extra Deck and you control no monsters, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand). You can discard 1 card; Special Summon 1 "Cipher" monster from your hand or Deck, also you cannot Special Summon monsters for the rest of this turn, except "Cipher" monsters. You can only use this effect of "Cipher Twin Raptor" once per turn.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: You'll probably meet this card's requirements to Special Summon itself quite easily given all the Extra Deck heavy Decks that exist these days but you're limited to Special Summoning Cipher monsters for that turn if you bring out one of its friends.
INOV-EN009
Superheavy Samurai Soulpeacemaker
EARTH / Machine / Level 1 / ATK 0 / DEF 0
You can target 1 "Superheavy Samurai" monster you control; equip this monster from your hand or field to that target. While this card is equipped to a monster by this effect, monsters your opponent controls cannot attack monsters you control, except the equipped monster. You can Tribute a monster you control equipped with this card by this card's effect; Special Summon 1 "Superheavy Samurai" monster from your Deck. You can only use this effect of "Superheavy Samurai Soulpeacemaker" once per turn.
RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: It can help get Big Benkei out, which is still the main powerhouse of the Main Deck monsters with 3500 DEF to use during the Damage Step but its lack of any ATK or DEF makes it quite vulnerable on the field.
INOV-EN008
Predaplant Squid Drosera
DARK / Plant / Level 2 / ATK 800 / DEF 400
You can send this card from your hand to the Graveyard, then target 1 face-up monster you control; this turn, it can attack all monsters your opponent controls with a Predator Counter, once each. If this face-up card leaves the field: Place 1 Predator Counter on each Special Summoned monster your opponent controls, and if you do, any of those monsters that are Level 2 or higher become Level 1 as long as they have a Predator Counter.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: The counters themselves won't do much to your opponent's monsters but have them on your opponent's monsters and this won't be too bad.
INOV-EN007
Predaplant Moray Nepenthes
DARK / Plant / Level 4 / ATK 1600 / DEF 1000
This card gains 200 ATK for each Predator Counter on the field. When this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle: You can equip that monster to this card. Once per turn: You can target 1 Monster Card equipped to this card by this card's effect; destroy it, and if you do, gain LP equal to its original ATK.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: It'll likely need help from one of its friends, which are so few at the moment to have a higher chance at equiping itself with its destroyed foe, though only 200 extra ATK will put it among the ranks of regular beatstick monsters.
INOV-EN006
Predaplant Flytrap
DARK / Plant / Level 2 / ATK 400 / DEF 800
Once per turn: You can target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; place 1 Predator Counter on it, and if it is Level 2 or higher, it becomes Level 1 as long as it has a Predator Counter. At the start of the Damage Step, when this card battles a monster with an equal or lower Level: You can destroy that monster, then increase this card's Level by the original Level of the destroyed monster.
RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: The more monsters it destroys by its effect the higher its Level will become and getting the counter on it is quite easy and once it has the counter, it'll always be a lower Level. If the effect is negated though, it's little more than a weed.
INOV-EN001
Performapal Changeraffe
EARTH / Beast-Type Pendulum / Level 1 / ATK 100 / DEF 500 / Scale 5
When exactly 1 monster you control (and no other cards) is destroyed by battle: You can destroy this card, and if you do, Special Summon that monster destroyed by battle in Attack Position, and if you do that, it cannot be destroyed by battle this turn (even if this card leaves the field).
When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; while this card is face-up on the field, that face-up monster cannot attack, also negate the effects of that face-up monster while it is on the field.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: It won't last very long to use or maintain its Monster Text effect but the Pendulum Text effect isn't too bad.
INOV-EN004
Performapal Seal Eel
WATER / Fish-Type Pendulum / Level 1 / ATK 100 / DEF 100 / Scale 3
Once per turn: You can target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; that face-up monster has its effects negated until the end of this turn (even if this card leaves the field).
When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can target 1 Set Spell/Trap Card your opponent controls; that Set card cannot be activated this turn. Neither player can activate cards or effects in response to this effect's activation.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: The weakest monster in this set so far but if there's a card on the field that's giving you grief, this can help, though not for long.
INOV-EN003
Performapal Flip Hippo
EARTH / Beast / Level 3 / ATK 800 / DEF 800
When this card is Normal Summoned: You can Special Summon 1 "Performapal" monster from your hand, but it has its effects negated until the end of this turn. Once per turn: You can change all monsters you control to Defense Position.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: It's no stronger than its original counterpart Hip Hippo and isn't as versatile as that monster but may be somewhat usable in Performapal Decks.
INOV-EN002
Performapal Whim Witch
DARK / Spellcaster-Type Pendulum / Level 3 / ATK 800 / DEF 800 / Scale 4
If your opponent controls a face-up monster that was Special Summoned from the Extra Deck and you do not: You can Special Summon this card from your Pendulum Zone. You can only use this effect of "Performapal Whim Witch" once per turn.
This card can be treated as 2 Tributes for the Tribute Summon of a Pendulum Monster.
RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: With many Decks these days having Extra Decks with monsters that are Summoned from there, this may pretty easily become Tribute fodder but she doesn't really offer anything else decent.
INOV-EN001
Dragon Core Hexer
DARK / Dragon-Type Tuner / Level 8 / ATK 2300 / DEF 3000
Many years of dragonslaying have bathed this huntress in countless amounts of blood. Each drop gave her more power, but at a terrible price, as her cursed body now spreads the dragontaint like an epidemic. No village will take her in, and she no longer even remembers what inspired her crusade in the first place.
RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: She should be thankful she's a Tuner monster because otherwise, I'd have no problem rating her the lowest rating I offer but even that is little consolation given that she really doesn't offer much else.
INOV-EN000
Space Dragster
Continuous Trap
Special Summon this card as an Effect Monster (Machine-Type/Tuner/FIRE/Level 1/ATK 0/DEF 1800). (This card is also still a Trap Card.) If Summoned this way, other Tuners you control cannot be destroyed by battle or your opponent's card effects while this card is in the Monster Zone.
RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: It becomes a Tuner monster once activated and doesn't have the worst DEF for its given Level as a monster but doesn't protect itself from destruction and having multiple Tuner monsters out is generally pointless.
