Today we look at one very powerful monsterrrr, who obviously works very well with the Gadgets as, depending on which one or ones you use to tribute for him he gains an additional effect or effects.

Ancient Gear Gadjiltron Dragon is all ready powerful on his own. 3000 attack is good, while 2000 defense is solid, but a little low. So, here's what this breaks down to: You will need to tribute two monsters, being Level 8, so:

Green Gadget gives this guy trample, if you're only going for trample, why not use Ancient Gear Golem? Red Gadget lets you do 400 damage anytime this guy destroys something. While Yellow Gadget lets you do 600.

So, if you do Red and Yellow, you're doing an extra 1000 points of damage a turn, but you could mix it up for trample and damage, it's up to you. For now, this is a good card, since Gadgets are all the hype, BUT, we get a new Ban List in about 3 weeks...

Ancient Gear Gadjiltron Dragon :
Ah, a return to form for the card name designers.

This isn't bad as such, but two tribute monsters must do something absolutely gamebreaking to justify the investment of resources, or be invulnerable to death.
This card contains neither of these, merely providing slightly more interesting ways of doing damage. I'm perfectly happy flipping a Stealth Bird every turn, so this doesn't do very much, especially as gadgets are really too fast for two tribute monsters.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5

Share and enjoy,

Ancient Gear Gadjiltron Dragon

As far as two tributes go this one is one of my favorites. I consider it a better ancient gear golem. The reason being that it sacrifices its trample ability for the ability to be special summoned. A gadget/chimera deck, any deck using multiple brain controls, or dimension fusion/premature burial/call of the haunted can benefit from the use of this monster. I have personally been obsessed with Mirage Dragon and Pitch Black Warwolf for sometime now. This is basically them on crack:)

It has huge stats, a self protection mechanism, and the ability to gain multiple effects (the trample one is the only important one outside of free attacks). I can see some people(I think to myself!) utilizing this for a surprise swing for the game.

4/5

A good monster, the two tribute issue will hurt you badly if your opponent is running 30 smashing ground like cards. But if you use this you should not be normal summoning it. Get creative!

Ancient Gear Gadjiltron Dragon

 

Gadjiltron Dragon is a good card. He’s Ancient Gear Golem without the Special Summoning restriction.

 

He sits at 3000 ATK and 2000 DEF, which is not bad at all. Even better, he has the ability to prevent anything from activating when he attacks. As a bonus, if you Tribute summon for him by Tributing a Gadget or two you get the effects listed on the card:

 

      - Green Gadget: During battle between this attacking card and a Defense Position monster whose DEF is lower than the ATK of this card, inflict the difference as Battle Damage to your opponent.
- Red Gadget: If this card inflicts Battle Damage to your opponent, inflict 400 damage to your opponent.
- Yellow Gadget: If this card destroys your opponent's monster by battle, inflict 600 damage to your opponent.

 

As far as I know these effects stack. I could be wrong though. I’m going to verify this by tomorrow.

 

Last Word: If you ever wanted to play with Ancient Gear monsters, play with Gadjiltron Dragon. If you Tribute for this card with a Green Gadget, you get the same effect as Ancient Gear Golem. Except that Gadjiltron is much more playable.

I’ve still got live discussion of the next Ban List coming on March 1st. I am doing some insightful speculation on what may come and I invite you to join as well.

 

Whether you agree or not doesn’t matter as long as we’re talking about it. The best thing is to be prepared for the changes that are coming and be open to new and radical ideas. You never know…it could get worse or maybe much better.

Turkeyspit Ancient Gear Gadjiltron Dragon

A Tribute monster in a Gadget deck? Weird, eh?

Well, I'm not going to cover the special abilities of this card because frankly, unless you are running Ultimate Offering, Premature Burial and/or Call of the Haunted, there isn't a consistent way to ensure you will have 2 Gadgets on the field to tribute for this behemoth. (unless you run Brain Control and you are facing off against another Gadget deck)

What I would like to bring to your attention however, is what is missing from the card. Let's have a look at the card text. See anything missing? How about the words: "This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by.."

Yep, that's right. This card ISN'T a Nomi monster. That means you can dump this card into the gravyard, and then bring it back via Call of the Haunted or Premature Burial.

And what card do we commonly see run in a Gadget deck? Yeah, you guessed it! Snipe Hunter.

So, toss this guy to the Graveyard with Snipe Hunter, flip up Call of the Haunted, declare an attack (which your opponent cannot respond to with either a trap or spell) and drop Limiter Removal for the lucksac...er..the win!

Ancient Gear Beast.
Ancient Gear Golemn.

Both would be awesome to summon in this fashion, but neither can be special summoned! Take advantage of that, and abuse this guy's 3000 ATK as much as you can.

------------------------

Traditional:

1/5 = Two Tributes, not LIGHT or DARK, etc etc etc..

Advanced:

3/5 = In a Gadget deck
4/5 = In a Mirror Match against a Gadget deck with you running 2-3 Brain Controls.
2/5 = Everywhere else (think Blue Eyes, only you can use Limiter)

Card Art:

3/5: Looks like a rusty Cyberdark Dragon to me.

If this card attacks, your opponent cannot activate any Spell or Trap Cards until the end of the Damage Step. If you Tribute Summon this card by Tributing any of the following monster(s), this card gets the appropriate effect(s): •Green Gadget: During battle between this attacking card and a Defense Position monster whose DEF is lower than the ATK of this card, inflict the difference as Battle Damage to your opponent. •Red Gadget: If this card inflicts Battle Damage to your opponent, inflict 400 damage to your opponent. •Yellow Gadget: If this card destroys your opponent's monster by battle, inflict 600 damage to your opponent.

That's a lot of text isn't it?

Realistically this card could function in any machine deck but how well? Well it would need a seriously amount of protection. It rivals Blue Eyes with the attack (with a somewhat decent effect going on here – more lately) yet it falls short as Blue Eyes has greater support in the form of Kaiba man. Well try and not hold this against the card.

The effects which this card has when tributing is interesting. At first glance the red and yellow effect is rather really pointless, battle damage for 400, and destruction for 600 damage but the green gadget is what makes this a force to be reckoned with. For the remainder of the review ll lets consider if we can turn this card into a one-turn kill.

The fact that its impervious to harm during the battle step makes it really good at stopping those pesky Sakuretsu armors and widespread ruins. If only we could get piercing effects and boost it up to well over 12000 attack in one turn, if only. We can.

One of the best things about the Gadgets is that when they are summoned they are self-replacing. This means that you will always have a supply in your hand, so lets get them all on the field. Using the trap card Ultimate offering you can summon all three gadgets or two if you don't want to overkill and tribute them for this rogue of a monster. Then it's a simple case of boosting its power over 12000 and your set, with either some limiter removal or megamorph for a one-turn kill - were not fussy.

However has anyone noticed an alternative win strategy with this card? Why not just say discard them to the grave or remove them from play and bring em back for one foul swoop at a win. This card has potential.

The problems facing this deck are simple, it's based around a trap, its based around limited cards. These however didn't stop stein and this could work Just make sure you're packing plenty of stall.

Hello to all! Welcome to another week of reviews, we look at a few machine monster, and an old favorite. Today’s card is...

SD10-EN001
ANCIENT GEAR GADJILTRON DRAGON
Earth
LV8
ATK/3000 DEF/2000
[Machine/Effect]
If this card attacks, your opponent cannot activate any Spell or Trap Cards until the end of the Damage Step. If you Tribute Summon this card by Tributing any of the following monster(s), this card gets the appropriate effect(s):
•Green Gadget: During battle between this attacking card and a Defense Position monster whose DEF is lower than the ATK of this card, inflict the difference as Battle Damage to your opponent's Life Points.
•Red Gadget: If this card inflicts Battle Damage to your opponent, inflict 400 damage to your opponent.
•Yellow Gadget: If this card destroys your opponent's monster by battle, inflict 600 damage to your opponent.

Ok, let’s break this down. Machine is good, so it combos with Limiter. An 8 star is not so good. The effect of 2 tribute monster has to be REALLY good to see play. So, there are not really any two Tribute monsters that are worth playing, except for possibly DMoC. But it does have 3000 attack, and 2000 defense. That’s enough to beat out basically everything in today’s format in battle. And if for some reason this bad boy is in defense, the opponent needs something of Cyber Dragon attack or higher to take it out.

Now, on to the effect. Like most of the Ancient Gears it gets the nifty ability to stop the opponent from activating any Spells or Traps once the attack is declared. No Sakuretsu, no Mirror, no Enemy Controller, no Rush Recklessly. Keep in mind though that the Ancient Gear player can still activate Spells and Traps, making this card an even deadlier combination with Limiter Removal.

The second part of the effect is how you try to justify the monster being two tributes. While you don’t have to, if you sacrifice a gadget, you get an effect added to your dragon. Tributing a Gadget won’t hurt a player as much as other monsters, and these effects are used when this Dragon battles, which once again combos with its first effect. So, how good are the added effects? Green=trample=good, Red=400 more damage when you inflict battle damage=not worth it. Yellow=600 damage upon destroying a monster=ok, combos with the trample effect Green gives it, I guess. But 400 and 600 extra damage aren’t all that great. It might give you the win once in a while, but overall they aren’t worth it.

If you decide to run this card, it belongs in an all out Gadget Machine deck, and preferably brought out by tributing a Green Gadget. And even then I would probably rather play Wednesday’s card.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 3/5 (In an Ancient Gear/Gadget deck only)
