Urgent Training, another Super Rare Trap continues the week. Activate during the Battle Phase, (yours or your opponents), and Synchro Summon one Synchro Monster. I checked ude/yugioh, and there wasn't a specific ruling.

So, I assume this can even be from the Graveyard, but I'm not positive.
Even if not, being able to Synchro Summon, as long as you have the pieces (on the Field, in your Hand, or a combination of both) is incredible, especially during your opponent's Battle Phase :)

General Zorpa Urgent Tuning

This is great if you really want to spring a surprise Synchro on the opponent. You can use this plus Revival Gift or Emergency Teleport in order to get the cards that you need to the field int he battle phase, wher eyour opponent might not be able to respond as well with their defensive cards.

This is especially useful against decks packing Threatening Roar, as if all you have is a low level monster, you can then spring a Goyo Guardian or Stardust Dragon on them when they least expect it. This is a mildly useful trick, but one that I think that is more useful on the cartoon show than at the final tables of a Shonen Jump Championship where it will likely only be a dead card.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-2.5/5

    Todayʼs card up for review is Urgent Tuning. I feel this is one of the sleeper cards in Crossroads of Chaos. I see a lot of potential in this. You basically will get to attack with two monsters, then synchro them up for extra damage and a nice upgraded board. The fun trick I thought of right off the bat would to have 2 bleh monsters while your opponent has Threatening Roar face down. They wonʼt activate it because your board is small, and here is where you can just surprise them and get some big damage. I am sure there are some other cool combos out there, just use your noggin

Trad: 1/5
Adv: 2/5
Anteaus Hey all, sorry I've been a bit...absent, but the fact of the matter is that I just haven't been feeling too well lately and haven't had a chance to get to work, check my e-mail and do the things that I'm normally supposed to be doing for the website. But have no fear, I'm back at it once again and ready to get reviewing, so here we go with today's card, Urgent Tuning.
 
Urgent Tuning is a great Trap Card, in my opinion, because it's ability can be activated during the Battle Phase. It's dead weight while it's sitting on your field outside of the Battle Phase, but during it this card can rain down destruction on your opponent without them even knowing what's going on. It's ability to be used on either player's turn is phenomenal, and really the only downside I see with this card is the fact that it's a Trap Card; most Synchro decks are too busy flying off the shelves and attacking and maneuvering so quickly that it's difficult to see what's going on.
