A nice spell card. Remember the good old days with
Snatch Steal and Premature Burial ... those gems
that were easy to forget actually fell into the
category of Equip spell cards? Hidden Armory would
have made sweel love to those two cards ... but alas
Regardless, Hidden Armory is perfect for decks that
require equip spells. Gearfried, obviously. Ben Kei,
if u so want to play it. The decks built around
Power Tool Dragon and those little machines that
came out in the previous booster ... So it
definitely has its uses. What makes it better than
simply decking the actual Equip Spell u want to use,
is that u can pull any Equip you want from your deck
or Graveyard. In 1 word? - Explosive. ... No, -
Excellent. No, wait - Explosive. Yeah, i like
But still - only for decks that actually require a
heavy amount of Equip spells. Only then is this a
gem. Otherwise? - there's no point to it.
Advanced: 4/5 (but only for decks that need heavy

Hidden Armory.... does
anyone have a knife? Seriously, I want to /wrists.
They butchered the name, Arms Hole or Armory Hole
would have been a much better name. Summoner Monk
from Summon Priest wasn't a bad switch, this one is
just horrible. But I guess we're not here to review
the name of cards but their effects and how they do
in the game and affect decks. Hidden Armory was a
card in Japan that took them by storm. It was one of
the few cards that helped them OTK. Have Brionac,
Dragon of the Ice Barrier on the field and Rescue
Cat in grave, play Hidden Armory, grab Premature
Burial from your deck, bring back Cat. Use Brionac
to put Premature into your hand, tribute for Cat,
and you can kinda see how this works. You keep using
Brionac to return Premature Burial and keep using
Premature Burial to reuse Rescue Cat over and over.
Hidden Armory helpped speed this up. After Premature
Burial was banned, Hidden Armory became popular
again in Magical Explosion OTK. Being able to pull
D.D.R. - Different Dimension Reincarnation and
Divine Sword - Phoenix Blade from your deck was
always helpful to recycle Kuraz the Light Monarch
and to have it removed from play by Phoenix Blade.
Hidden Armory will now probably find its way into
Hopeless Dragon decks to pull Reincarnations from
the deck or graveyard and well you probably know why
they'd use DDR - Different Dimension Reincarnation
in the deck. There are many ways to use it and im
fairly sure Morphtronics, Ben Kei and Gemini decks
will use Hidden Armory too.

Here we have Hidden Armory, Today's Card of the Day.
Send 1 card from the top of your Deck to the
Graveyard. Add 1 Equip Spell Card from your Deck or
Graveyard to your hand. You cannot Normal Summon or
Set the turn you activate this effect.
Up until now, getting an equip card from your deck
or graveyard wouldn’t really be something to
celebrate, especially when you are losing your
normal summon for the turn. Well lucky for us this
card was released with another card that actually
worth searching for. That of course is Supervise.
This isn’t a review for Supervise though. Overall
this card is pretty balanced since it can reach both
into the deck and the grave. I’ve seen a pretty
strong Gigavise deck and this card is definitely
worth its weight in that deck. The reality is though
we really don’t have a lot of equips that see wide
play. Plants abuse it with Supervise and mark of the
rose and other decks gain access to DDR. Overall
this card isn’t really too bad, but usually you
don’t really want to run more than one. Great in
Gigavise, ok in others, terrible if you are gonna
search for sword of the deep seated.
Traditional 3/5 Advanced casual 3/5, Advanced
Art: Very cool, I would like to see this card as a
holo some day.
Sorry I didn't review Phoenix Gearfried yesterday I
had a pretty crazy day. So today's review is Hidden
Armory or Arms Hole. It's about time we got this
card! This gives any deck that runs equips a huge
boost. That's you powertool dragon. At the cost of
your normal summon Hidden Armory grabs you any equip
spell from your deck or grave and also mills your
top card. This card is key when you need an equip
card because it can grab it from everywhere. In the
right deck this card is a beast but it isn't a big
impact on the current metagame.
