Currently the second best Sneak
Preview Promo, following Grandmaster of the Six
When I first saw this card at the
Sneak Preview, I considered this as the new 1900 ATK
Gadget. +1 advantage upon summoning was only
granted by the Clockwork monsters, Chaos monsters,
and very few (mostly restricted/banned) monsters. I
fortunately got 4 copies of this at the Sneak
Preview and made a Deck. Although I had trouble
getting Volcanic Shell, I essentially tweaked my
Gadget Deck into a primitive Volcanic Monarch deck
(gosh, I traded away 3 Rockets!!!!!). I failed
without needed copies of Raiza the Storm Monarch.
Before I forget, with a pile of
homework in front of me, this card CAN search out
“Tri-Blaze Accelerator.” Because Rocket searches
out a Continuous Spell, it can work well with Spell
Shield – Type 8, Chiron the Mage, Judgment of
Anubis, and other cards that specifically require a
Spell Card to be discarded. Phoenix Wing Wind
Blast, Snipe Hunter, Lightning Vortex…all these
cards can just be basically free.
This card can do some serious
damage with 1900 ATK. FIRE often symbolizes
destruction, and Volcanic monsters can
single-handedly be Raigeki. Cyber Dragon and Rocket
add up to 4000 damage, and if you run Volcanic
Scattershot (underrated in my opinion…Raigeki + 1000
damage + 3 Pyro-Type monsters in your Graveyard for
1 card and Blaze Accelerator?)…you will force your
opponent to act sooner than they wish to.
Of course, Gravekeeper’s Spy can
really be a pain. Drawing Blaze Accelerator can
also be troublesome. However, there are some risks
of bad draws in every deck.
With Volcanic Counter coming out
in Phantom Darkness, Volcanic monsters receive a
nice boost. Factor in Royal Firestorm Guard, and
you have an amazing deck.
Advanced: 4/5 This is an
amazing card. Watch out.
We're kickin' off these next weeks with
reviews of all you duelists' top 10 favorite
cards. I feel terrible because of a stupid
killer headache and fever especially in this
stupid cold weather here in North Carolina. I'll
do my best, though. Volcanic Rocket is
essentially helpful in Pyro-Fire Decks (Mostly
around the Volcanic Monsters and material) and
if you run Blaze Accelerator which is not bad
since its effect states that you can send a Pyro
in your hand to the graveyard to destroy a
monster on the field, but you can't declare an
attack, absolutely run copies of Volcanic
Rocket. Although the side effect kind of hurts,
it can change to the duel if you have the right
material. Plus, there is no limit to how many
times you can use its effect so abuse it as much
as you can at the right times. Volcanic Rocket
itself is a solid monster with 1900 ATK and 1400
DEF for a level 4 monster. It serves 2 purposes
- a nice beatstick and a good searcher for Blaze
Traditional (Almost forgot the name of
that format): 2.25/5 (Decent, but chaos
still rules here)
Advanced: 3.5/5 (Volcanic/Pyro
As one of the
key cards in the Volcanic Theme, Volcanic Rocket
is a four star FIRE/Pyro monster with 1900/1400
stats, which aren't too bad alone. His effect of
adding a Blaze Accelerator to your hand when
he's summoned isn't at all bad either, since he
would most likely be run alongside a triplet of
Volcanic Shells. However, because of the cost of
wasting a battle phase this turn of Blaze
Accelerator, Volcanic Rocket's effect can also
be used for thinning the deck or for discard
fodder for useful cards like Snipe Hunter and
Phoenix Wing Wind Blast. This card can be useful
in a Volcanic Monarch deck (as most of you may
have already noticed), since it can easily get
Volcanic Shell in the Graveyard while inflicting
some minor burn, and also just because it's a
fairly decent attacker. Being a decent attacker
also means that it can stay on the field for
more than a turn (most of the time) and can be
used for tribute fodder.
2/5 - Beatdown can be seen, but a FIRE attribute
isn't that great.

Alrighty, we are counting down the Top 10 cards for
Yugioh in 2007. Today's card is Volcanic Rocket.
It's a 1900 attacker that when normal summoned
allows you to search your deck or graveyard for a
This card made the top 10 because of Volcanic
Monarchs. The deck type offers a lot of removal and
control, which allows the Monarchs to give you the
advantage late game. With constant +1's floating
around in this deck, it's a fun deck to play. Now
with Rocket, the blaze accelerator allows you to
1 monster on your opponent's side of the field by
discarding 1 500 attack or lower pyro type monster.
So just discard those Volcanic Shells and load up on
the accelerator for maximum control. Although, you
can't attack if you use the accelerator, it's nice
to get rid of a problem monster. And with the Royal
Firestorm Guards that just came out with Gladiator's
Assault, Volcanics should make an impact since it's
basically a Pot of Avarice to load up those shells.
Without the Rocket, Volcanic Monarchs probably
wouldn't exist, that's just my opinion. In
traditional, I don't see this card being too good,
but Advanced format is where this card is at. Only
use this card in a Volcanic based deck.
Well, we are reviewing the top ten cards of the Year
2007, as chosen on average by us here at Pojo over
the next two weeks. So, this should be a special
treat for you readers!
I'm fairly surprised we put in a card that is
specific to a theme in the top 10, but whatever...
Volcanic Rocket is a great card for a currently
decent theme. This theme does have more support
coming in the next set, so it is good, but I'm not
going to argue with our list.
Volcanic Rocket...sickest picture ever. All right,
let's talk about versatility. You can add one Blaze
Accelerator from your Deck or Graveyard to your Hand
whenever you Normal, Flip, or Special Summon
That's an almost guarenteed +1 for you every time
you play Volcanic Rocket, unless you have all your
Blaze Accelerators in your Hand and/or on your side
of the Field. To top things off, Volcanic Rocket has
1900 attack, so he can certainly hold his own for a
It's good support for the Volcanic theme, and I
would love to see a successful Volcanic Deck top 8
at a Shonen Jump or a Regional or something, but
Advanced: 3.25/5 (It's own deck)
Welcome to the Pojo's Yu-Gi-Oh! Countdown of '07!
Today we have a real bombshell for you in Volcanic
Rocket. This is the card that makes Volcanic decks
rock. What made Stratos so good is that it can
search out a card from your deck in order to give
you an extra card to do battle with or whatever.
Rocket does much the same thing, searching out a
Blaze Accelerator or Tri-Blaze Accelerator from your
deck OR graveyard. The graveyard trick is something
that even Stratos cannot do. It is essential in
threes for the Volcanic deck that is running around.
Did I mention that it had 1900 ATK and can smashi
pretty much any non tribute monster in the face?
Combine this card with Royal Firestorm Guards and
you can have an endless destruction engine as well
as constant advantage.
well, todays review is volcanic blaster. not
much to say here, if you run a blaze deck, run
this. if not, dont.
5/5 volcanic deck any format
