Invasion: Vengeance (Page 3)

INOV-EN059
Catalyst Field
Field Spell
Each turn, 1 Level 5 or higher Gemini monster you Normal Summon can be Summoned without Tributing. During your Main Phase, you can Normal Summon 1 Gemini monster in addition to your Normal Summon/Set. (You can only gain this effect once per turn.) Once per turn: You can target 1 card your opponent controls; banish 1 Gemini monster you control, that is treated as an Effect Monster and has gained its effects, until your opponent's End Phase, and if you do, destroy that card.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: This can allow you to bring out your Deck's strongest Gemini monster with its bonus effect, though I wouldn't recommend using the other effect.
INOV-EN058
Fullmetalfoes Fusion
Quick-Play Spell
Fusion Summon 1 "Metalfoes" Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck, using monsters from your hand or field as Fusion Materials.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Most Fusion Summoning cards are not Quick-Play Spells but since this offers nothing else, I can't rate it any higher.
INOV-EN057
Crystolic Potential
Field Spell
All "Crystron" monsters you control gain 300 ATK and DEF. Once per turn, during the End Phase: You can draw cards equal to the number of "Crystron" Synchro Monsters you Synchro Summoned this turn.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: It'll help replenish your hand but that requires you to Synchro Summon at least once but the ATK and DEF boost is pretty poor.
INOV-EN056
Super Koi Koi
Normal Spell
Excavate the top 3 cards of your Deck and Special Summon as many "Flower Cardian" monsters among them as possible, ignoring their Summoning conditions, but their Levels become 2 and they have their effects negated. Banish the remaining cards, face-down, and if you do, lose 1000 LP for each. You can banish this card from your Graveyard and Tribute 1 monster; Special Summon 1 "Flower Cardian" monster from your hand, ignoring its Summoning conditions. You can only activate 1 "Super Koi Koi" per turn.
RARE
Rating: 1
Comments: Even with Flower Cardians, this card is quite risky because you'll probably draw it before you've arrnaged your Deck's top cards to get Flower Cardians on top, which'll mean you'll be down at least 1000 LP just for using this and the other effect is going to cost you more than you'll get back.
INOV-EN055
Flower Stacking
Normal Spell
Choose 3 "Flower Cardian" monsters with different names from your Deck, and place them on top of your Deck in any order. During your Main Phase, except the turn this card was sent to the Graveyard: You can banish this card from your Graveyard, then target 1 "Flower Cardian" monster in your Graveyard; add it to your hand. You can only use this effect of "Flower Stacking" once per turn.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: This can help get the Flower Cardians so you'll have a better chance at getting them out on the field but there are also more generic versions of this like Spellbook Organization.
INOV-EN054
The Phantom Knights' Rank-Up-Magic Launch
Quick-Play Spell
During the Main Phase: Target 1 DARK Xyz Monster you control with no Xyz Materials; Special Summon from your Extra Deck, 1 DARK Xyz Monster that is 1 Rank higher than that monster you control, by using it as the Xyz Material, and if you do, attach this card to it as additional Xyz Material. (This Special Summon is treated as an Xyz Summon. Xyz Materials attached to it also become Xyz Materials on the Summoned monster.) During your Main Phase: You can banish this card from your Graveyard, then target 1 DARK Xyz Monster you control; attach 1 "The Phantom Knights" monster from your hand to that monster as Xyz Material.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Thankfully, I can use it on any DARK Xyz Monster and not just The Phantom Knights but you will need a The Phantom Knights monster to attach as Xyz Material for the last effect though.
INOV-EN053
Amazing Pendulum
Normal Spell
If you have no cards in your Pendulum Zones: Add 2 face-up "Magician" Pendulum Monsters with different names from your Extra Deck to your hand. You can only activate 1 "Amazing Pendulum" per turn.
COMMON
Rating: 2
Comments: The best choices are Timegazer and Stargazer as they'll give you the widest range for Pendulum Summoning but they have to be already face-up on your Extra Deck.
INOV-EN052
Toadally Awesome
WATER / Aqua-Type Xyz / Rank 2 / ATK 2200 / DEF 0
2 Level 2 Aqua-Type monsters
Once per turn, during the Standby Phase: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; Special Summon 1 "Frog" monster from your Deck. Once per turn, during either player's turn, when your opponent activates a Spell/Trap Card, or monster effect: You can send 1 Aqua-Type monster from your hand or face-up from your field to the Graveyard; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy that card, then you can Set it to your field. If this card is sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 WATER monster in your Graveyard; add it to your hand.
SECRET RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Perhaps Konami's way of trying to rejuvenate Frogs when they've lost their most powerful combos to the great Banned List but I don't think it does much for them since it costs you resources from your hand or field just to stop effects and then your opponent will be aware of the card you just took from them. The last effect is at least more generic but that DEF is going to cost it and you eventually.
INOV-EN051
Darktellarknight Batlamyus
DARK / Warrior-Type Xyz / Rank 4 / ATK 2600 / DEF 550
2 Level 4 "tellarknight" monsters
All face-up monsters on the field become DARK. You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card and discard 1 card; Special Summon from your Extra Deck, 1 LIGHT "tellarknight" Xyz Monster by using this face-up card you control as the Xyz Material, also you cannot Xyz Summon other monsters for the rest of this turn. (This is treated as an Xyz Summon. Xyz Materials attached to this card also become Xyz Materials on the Summoned monster.) This effect can be activated during either player's turn, if you have 7 or more "tellarknight" monsters with different names in your Graveyard.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Apart from making every monster on the field a DARK monster, there isn't much to get from this card unless you Xyz Summon by its effect and you're not likely going to be able to to do it during your opponent's turn, not that that's any better.
INOV-EN050
Vola-Chemicritter Methydraco
FIRE / Beast-Warrior-Type Xyz / Rank 8 / ATK 3000 / DEF 3000
2 Level 8 Gemini monsters
When this card is Xyz Summoned: You can target 1 Gemini monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it. While this card has Xyz Material, monsters your opponent controls cannot target Gemini monsters you control for attacks, also your opponent cannot target Gemini monsters you control with card effects. When a Gemini monster is Normal Summoned: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; make your opponent send 1 card from their hand or field to the Graveyard (their choice).
SUPER RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: With the help of Oxy Ox, you can bring this card out more easily but this is only usable in Gemini Decks.
INOV-EN049
Dark Requiem Xyz Dragon
DARK / Dragon-Type Xyz / Rank 5 / ATK 3000 / DEF 2500
3 Level 5 monsters
If this card has "Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon" as Xyz Material, it gains these effects.
● Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; change its ATK to 0, and if you do, this card gains ATK equal to that monster's original ATK.
● During either player's turn, when your opponent activates a monster effect: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy that card, then you can Special Summon 1 Xyz Monster from your Graveyard.
SECRET RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: So Dark Rebellion got upgraded here but unless you Rank-Up to it, it's not going to help you at all given that both effects require you to have Dark Rebellion as Xyz Material.
INOV-EN048
Denglong, First of the Yang Zing
LIGHT / Wyrm-Type Synchro-Type Tuner / Level 5 / ATK 0 / DEF 2800
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
If this card is Special Summoned: You can add 1 "Yang Zing" card from your Deck to your hand. Once per turn: You can send 1 Wyrm-Type monster from your Deck to the Graveyard; this card's Level becomes the sent monster's. If this face-up card leaves the field: You can Special Summon 1 "Yang Zing" monster from your Deck. You can only Special Summon "Denglong, First of the Yang Zing(s)" once per turn.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: The DEF will keep it around for a while and you'll add to your arsenal with the effect right away but there are very few Wyrm monsters that are any good and while you'll also get to replace it when it leaves the field, you're not allowed to bring out more than one copy per turn.
INOV-EN047
Aromaseraphy Rosemary
LIGHT / Plant-Type Synchro / Level 5 / ATK 2000 / DEF 900
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
While your LP is higher than your opponent's, all Plant-Type monsters you control gain 500 ATK and DEF. Once per turn, if you gain LP: Target 1 face-up card your opponent controls; that face-up card has its effects negated until the end of this turn.
RARE
Rating: 1
Comments: This'd only be remotely good in LP Gain Decks but I wouldn't even recommend it there given it gives a measly 500 ATK and DEF boost and negates only one card's effects for the turn.
INOV-EN046
Crystron Phoenix
WATER / Machine-Type Synchro / Level 9 / ATK 2800 / DEF 2000
1 Tuner Synchro Monster + 1 or more non-Tuner Synchro Monsters
If this card is Synchro Summoned: You can banish all Spell and Trap Cards your opponent controls and in their Graveyard. If this Synchro Summoned card is destroyed by battle or card effect: You can target 1 other monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: It's practicially an Accel Synchro monster because it requires Synchro Monnsters as the Synchro Materials but even if it hits the field, your opponent can still fight back with the very cards this tries to get rid of.
INOV-EN045
Crystron Ametrix
WATER / Machine-Type Synchro / Level 5 / ATK 2500 / DEF 1500
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
If this card is Synchro Summoned: You can change all face-up Special Summoned monsters your opponent controls to Defense Position. If this Synchro Summoned card is destroyed by battle or card effect: You can target 1 "Crystron" monster in your Graveyard, except a Synchro Monster; Special Summon it.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Perhaps this one should've been the higher rarity given that it can put all your opponent's Special Summoned monsters in Defnese Mode, where they'll likely be more vulnerable. Plus, should this card ever get destroyed, it can replace itself with one of its friends that isn't a Synchro Monster.
INOV-EN044
Crystron Quandax
WATER / Machine-Type Synchro-Type Tuner / Level 4 / ATK 1800 / DEF 2000
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
During your opponent's Main Phase or Battle Phase, you can: Immediately after this effect resolves, Synchro Summon 1 Synchro Monster, using Materials including this card you control (this is a Quick Effect). If this Synchro Summoned card is destroyed by battle or card effect: You can target 1 "Crystron" monster in your Graveyard, except a Synchro Monster; Special Summon it.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: As I've said before, Synchro Summons during your opponent's turn are pretty well pointless, even if they do have good effects. This guy doesn't have much aside from that though.
INOV-EN043
Flower Cardian Boardefly
DARK / Warrior-Type Synchro / Level 6 / ATK 2000 / DEF 2000
1 Tuner + 2 non-Tuner monsters
If a "Flower Cardian" monster you control attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent. Once per turn: You can banish 1 "Flower Cardian" monster from your Graveyard; until the end of your opponent's next turn, your opponent cannot activate effects of cards in the Graveyard, also they cannot Special Summon monsters from the Graveyard.
RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: It inflicts piercing battle damage but you're forced to use 2 non-Tuners and not even Flower Cardians have that many to use since their Levels are so high. The other effects aren't that bad either but will require you to run this with its friends.
INOV-EN042
Superheavy Samurai Ninja Sarutobi
EARTH / Machine-Type Synchro / Level 8 / ATK 2000 / DEF 2800
1 Machine-Type Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner "Superheavy Samurai" monsters
This card can attack while in face-up Defense Position. If it does, apply its DEF for damage calculation. Once per turn, during either player’s turn, if you have no Spell/Trap Cards in your Graveyard: You can target 1 Spell/Trap Card on the field; destroy it, and if you do, inflict 500 damage to your opponent.
RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: The only remotely good thing about this guy is it can attack while in Defense Mode, though even Big Benkei can do that and is not only much easier to bring out but has higher DEF.
INOV-EN041
Meteor Black Comet Dragon
DARK / Dragon-Type Fusion / Level 8 / ATK 3500 / DEF 2000
1 Level 7 "Red-Eyes" monster + 1 Level 6 Dragon-Type monster
If this card is Fusion Summoned: You can send 1 "Red-Eyes" monster from your hand or Deck to the Graveyard, and if you do, inflict damage to your opponent equal to half the original ATK of that monster. If this card is sent from the Monster Zone to the Graveyard: You can target 1 Normal Monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: It's asking for quite a bit not only to bring it out but in regards to either effect and the strongest Red-Eyes monster you can send is Darkness Metal, which means 1400 damage to your opponent, which is more than some cards deal but the last effect is limited to Normal Monsters.
INOV-EN040
Metalfoes Mithrilium
FIRE / Psychic-Type Fusion / Level 6 / ATK 2600 / DEF 1000
1 "Metalfoes" monster + 1 Pendulum Monster
You can target 2 "Metalfoes" cards in your Graveyard and 1 card on the field; shuffle the targets from your Graveyard into the Deck, and if you do, return the target on the field to the hand. You can only use this effect of "Metalfoes Mithrilium" once per turn. If this card is sent from the field to the Graveyard: You can Special Summon 1 "Metalfoes" Pendulum Monster from your Graveyard or face-up from your Extra Deck.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: You'll possibly have a Metalfoes Pendulum monster face-up on your Extra Deck just from bringing this guy out but both effects are pretty mediocre for an Ultra Rare.
