Sorry for the short review here -- this falls into
that one category of cards I hate.
We already have King of the Swamp. Monster that not
only searches Polymerization but is a Fusion Sub as
well if you already have Polymerization.
1/5 all-around, as it's one of those cards that has
a clearly better card out already.
This card is completely pointless. I’ll say that
right now. What Fusion Sage does, King of the Swamp
does better. The only reason to run Fusion Sage
would be that you want more than three ways to bring
Polymerization straight to your hand, or you don’t
have three Kings of the Swamp (but if you can’t get
three Kings of the Swamp, it’s extremely unlikely
that you’d be able to get Fusion Sage). Much like
King of the Swamp, the only Fusion Deck you’ll
really even want Polymerization for is a Dark
Run this card if you have a lot of trouble drawing
your Polymerizations, I guess…but the truth is that
this was released in the TCG way too late to be

As New Week progresses, we come to Fusion Sage, a
Spell that attempts to help the dying breed that is
actual Fusion Summons.
FS allows you to add a Polymerization in your Deck
to your hand. After that your Deck is shuffled. The
effect is EXTREMELY straightforward, and none to
useful these days. Why? For the simple reason that
we could use King of the Swamp instead. Not only
does King have an identical effect to that of FS,
but it can also be a Fusion-Substitute monster. And
King should only be your alternative to FS in a Dark
Paladin Deck, or a Deck that stays fateful to Fusion
Summons. In any other Deck I’d advise just using
Metamorphosis, or if you’re playing Traditional
Magical Scientist. So to be blunt, don’t bother
using FS. Ever.
Advanced: 1/5. If you get a TP6 version of Fusion
Sage, sell it.
Traditional: 1/5. A 1 is supposedly the lowest
Art: 2/5. Because I’ve yet to see a picture of
Fusion Sage, I’ll need to go off of memory for the
GBA artwork, which seemed to basically be some dude
squeezing energy in his hand.
Fusion Sage is a nifty tutor spell that allows you
to fetch Polymerization from your deck. This effect
allows a deck reliant on fusions to be more
consistent. In fact, some decks may have actually
considered this card for tournament play had it not
been released about five years after Japan saw it.
Since then, King of the Swamps has been released,
and it's not only a fusion substitute, but it's a
built-in Fusion Sage as well! Fusion Gate was also a
nice way to make a Fusion Deck more consistent. Not
only did it allow for multiple fusion summons, but
it gave a deck utilizing the gate an alternate
victory with Dimension Fusion power.
This means that Fusion Sage is completely outdated
and can no longer be seen as suitable for tournament
play. Don't expect this fate for the new spell card
to change either. The upcoming Elemental Heroes are
better off with Fusion Gate for a variety of
Limited: 1/5 (relying on fusions in limited is a bad
thing) Hurray! I finally can end my trend of 1/5s
that I have given cards for the past three days! =D
Fusion Sage; a simple review for a simple card.
This card seems like a waste unless you have a
Fusion deck and have already run most other
“filler” draw cards. I say this because, if
that is not the case, there are some very nice
Fusion Substitutes you can use instead, some of
which can also fill in for Polymerization.

Sorry about yesterday's review, I wasn't aware Neo
had been changed to a Nomi monster. Thanks to those
who brought it to my attention :)
Well, this card lets you bring Polymerization from
your deck to your hand and shuffle your deck.
Very few decks, if any can use this card as everyone
"Morphs" their for their Fusions now anyway. The
only deck I really see this helping is possibly the
Dark Paladin deck and that's a bit or a stretch too.
You can already use King of the Swamp to help get
Polymerization faster, but I suppose if you could
somehow find the room, go ahead and use one in that
deck as Dark Paladin can only be Fusion Summoned.
Sorry to be short today, but there are few uses for
this card unless you refuse to use Metamorphosis or
simply don't have it. I mean, Fusion Gate is a
