Gemini Spark
 
Sorry for the delay in reviewing guys, I have been busy creating some new and exciting ideas for you, some of which I am gonna unleash in an article to be written sometime soon.
 
Anyway, today's card is Gemini Spark. This is one of the better Gemini support cards from SOVR, and actually makes a deck using them almost viable. It is a Quickplay Spell card, which is the best kind of non-monster card that functions as both a Tpell and a Trap.
 
The effect is that you Tribute a face-up level 4 Gemini and then select a card on the field. You then destroy the selected card and then draw a card. This type of removal/draw engine was already experimented on with cards like Morphtronic Accelerator and Fish Depth Charge, both of which are excellent cards, but in the wrong card category.
 
Level 4 Geminis are the only ones that are worth playiing in a cohesive deck anyway, as most of the high level ones fit in with more archetype themed support (Il Blud and Gigaplant come to mind). You can combine this with cards like Birthright and get a nice engine going as well.
 
Anyway, a beatdown deck using Geminis could very well become a reality with so much good stuff being thrown their way. I am onna play around with it and all of the new stuff in the Structure deck and see what I come up with, and you should too, and in any deck like that, you will need this card. Good thing it's a common.

Gemini Spark …
 
Icarus Attacks for Gemini Monsters … (why do people always say things like that? … Always wanna call a card by another card’s name, but with slight variation … lol … ANYWAYS!)
 
So yeah, that’s basically what this card is, but with … slight variation that makes it possibly even better than Icarus Attacks. For one thing – it’s a quick play spell, not a trap, meaning it doesn’t have to be set 1st. You can activate it from your hand on your turn if something doesn’t go your way, and want to make something out of nothing … i.e. – You summon your Gemini, your opponent uses Bottomless Trap Hole, so u Gemini Spark it right off the field and destroy one of their cards. They lost their Bottomless, and maybe another card, and you get to draw a card. … And that’s another difference. Icarus lets u blow up 2 cards on field, while G Spark lets u pop 1. But G Spark also lets u draw another card, which I’m actually in favor of. In both cases u are losing your monster anyway, sacrificing field presence. But G Spark lets u add to your hand as well, which helps even out the loss. And lastly, Icarus requires there be 2 targets to pop. With an uneven field, Icarus may wind up laying there unused if the timing aint right. G Spark can almost always get that 1 for 1.
 
Icarus is a good card. Gemini Spark is a better one.
Oh, and the picture is bad-ass!!

Gemini Spark doesn't have much to it so this review will probably be small, but its another Stardust Overdrive card that, at least in my area is being hyped up for Gemini decks. Tribute a face up level 4 Gemini you control. Select and destroy a card on the field and draw 1 card. Simple and small effect. This cards very similar to Morphtronic Accelerator and Fish Depth Charge, Sacrificing a monster or returning one to destroy a card then draw one. Honestly though Fish have enough cards and so do Morphtronics. Gemini decks needed support like this as well as stuff like Supervis which we reviewed last week. Gemini decks are really interesting right now, and im expecting to see Gemini decks at the upcoming jump as im sure people be interested in how the deck does. Gemini Spark is something I see Gemini decks using as well as Supervis.

Gemini Spark

Here we have, Gemini Spark , Today’s card of the Day.

Tribute 1 face-up Level 4 Gemini Monster and select 1 card on the field. Destroy the selected card and draw 1 card.

Now this card is promising. This is a similar version to the morphtronic card, Morphtronic accelerator or icarus attack, since it is quick play. They try to kill your monster or control it or whatever and you can pop it and something else. This card is best played in response to something your opponent does because then at least they can take the -1. Honestly this card has one big problem, most of the level 4 geminis are mediocre. Do you really want to play them to make this card work? The top Gemini decks right now are gigavis and bludvis and their main gemini’s are sixes. In a dedicated Gemini deck this card is amazing, overall it would be even better if you could tribute any level Gemini for the effect. Oh well, another card that come close.

Traditional 1/5, Advanced Casual  4/5, Advanced Competitive 3/5

Here we have another gemini card. Today we'll be reviewing gemini spark, a solid quickplay spell card which lets you tribute a level 4 gemini monster to blow up any card on the field and draw 1. This card gives you an awesome card advantage and is useful in a variety of situations my favorite being when they try to attack over your monster you can use this card to sacrafice your monster then destroy their monster and get a free draw. Run 3 in your gemini deck. While this card is a pretty good card it is not extremly broken and because of that it gets a ...
