Wow...this is a little card that packs a BIG punch. At first glance, Volcanic Scattershot is nothing special. A Level 2 monster with 500 attack and 0 defense of the Fire/Pyro type. However, he does have a couple of effects.

This first being the burn effect. When sent to the Graveyard, Scattershot inflicts 500 points of damage to your opponent. 500 isn't anything to write home about, but it is something, and traditional enough for a Pyro monster.

Secondly, if you send this to the Graveyard for the effect of a "Blaze Accelerator" card, by sending two other Volcanic Scattershot cards from your Hand and/or Deck, you can destroy all monsters your opponent controls.

Awesome! Destroying all your opponent's monsters is almost always a good thing to do. For those of you who are wondering, I looked on UDE.com, and here's something you may be interested in knowing:

If this card is sent to the Graveyard for the effect of a “Blaze Accelerator” card, its effect to inflict 500 damage to your opponent does not activate.

Ratings:

Fire Volcanic (constructed build): 3.5/5 A nice piece of burn, and a chance to destroy all your opponent's monsters? Sign me up.

Art: 3/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Volcanic Scattershot

 

I’ve been testing with a ‘Volcanic’ themed deck. Volcanic Scattershot is definitely one of my favorite cards in the series.

 

The Raigeki effect is more than worth the 3 slots you use for it and the 500 damage per copy that goes to the Graveyard.

 

Anyone using this outta give this a try.

 

Last Word: A deck with 3 of each Blaze Accelerator, Volcanic Shell, Volcanic Scattershot, and Volcanic Rocket will find that your opponent won’t have a creature on the field for any reason what so ever. Give it a try and see for yourself.

 

Ratings:

 

Traditional: 2/5

Advanced: 4/5

 

Hey guys, this week I’ll be going over the Nationals Decklists that were posted yesterday. I’ll be talking Nationals over with a few people I know that were there to get an accurate picture of what it was like and what was played.

 

I know…the season is technically over. However, that’s only for about a month or two, maybe less. If you want to get ready for the next season, be sure to stop by my blog at www.thebestyugiohblog.blogspot.com

When this card is sent to the Graveyard, inflict 500 damage to your opponent. If this card is sent to the Graveyard for the effect of a "Blaze Accelerator" card, you can send 2 "Volcanic Scattershots" from your hand/deck to destroy all monsters your opponent controls.
500/0

Well this card may not be Volcanic Shell, but it's still really nice. If it is sent to the graveyard, there is a quick 500 LPs your opponent loses. Being able to be discarded by Blaze Accelerator really helps out the deck, so there is even more support for Blaze Accelerator and Pyro decks. If you see your opponent really swarming fast with 3-4 monsters or even goats, this can really be useful just to kill off the field. Sure in other decks that aren't Pyro I would use Lightning Vortex, and even then your opponent would still lose the 500. So overall this is a good card to be able to discard and to do damage. Think of Snipe Hunter, destroy a card, and do 500 damage! That is amazing!

Traditional: 1/5 Really nothing to do here
Advanced: 3/5 So many ways this can be used. Snipe Hunter, Blaze Accelerator, any discard, this is really nice.

Volcanic Scattershot
 
 
Luckily, I have someone at my local who is trying this deck out, so I actually know what most of the cards do without having to look them up.
 
Scattershot is really only good as Blaze Accelerator fodder -- the 500 damage can be nice if you have to set it, but as the rulings stand, if you send it for Blaze, its 500 damage effect doesn't go through.  An unconditional Raigeki is nice, and being able to send the other two from the deck is great (which also boosts some of your other potential Volcanic effects) but it won't be consistent enough that you'll constantly be Raigeki-ing opponents.
 
It's still not bad at what it does, but beyond that I still don't see the deck as Tier 1.
 
 
2.5/5
