Quilbolt is actually marginally worse than Junk Synchron I think, but my thoughts on both these cards were covered yesterday.

General Zorpa Quillbolt Hedgehog
 
This card was supposed to be Junk Synchron's partner, but it just fell flat. Quillbolt Hedgehog is a level 2 Machine EARTH monster with 800 ATK and 800 DEF. The stats are less than impressive and the effect is rather meh in my opinion.
 
The effect is that if you control a Tuner, you can Special Summon it from your graveyard for free. The combo is that if you have a Tuner and a Cannon Soldier or Mass Driver with Imperial Iron Wall out, you have infinite burn damage. The combo was never really effective, just because of the lack of good support for it, but with Starlight Road, you can deifinitely do some things with this card that you would normally think was dirty.
 
Used in conjunction with Junk Synchron, you can SYnchro for a level 7 with little to no effort, which was a lot of the hype. However, without a bunch of good level 7 Synchros out there, the card just does not have enought toys to play with.
 
You can do some cool things to get Light and Darkness Dragon to the field, as you will see in my latest article with the possibility of using this card, but oherwise, it is just not really worth playing.

Quillbolt Hedgehog …

Again – looks like a Beast, but it’s actually a Machine. Fine. Whatever. The Hedgehog is pretty good. But only if u are playing and revolving your deck around Synchro monsters. This mechanical rodent (I think hedgehogs are rodents ... aren’t they?) pairs up nicely with yesterday’s Junk Synchron. Junk is a level 3 Tuner, and will grab a level 2 or lower monster from the graveyard when he’s summoned. Add to that QBH’s level 2, (per his effect - if he’s in the graveyard and a tuner is on your field, u can special summon him), and now, in 1 move, u have a level 7 Synchro monster at your finger tips, and there are several good ones to chose from. Even if u aren’t using Junk Synchron, QBH works with ANY Tuner, and the more hedgehogs u have in your graveyard, the more of them u can bring out, and the stronger a Synchro monster u can build!

So yeah – machines are well supported, so it will definitely fit in there. And an Earth Machine, at that. So it fits in EXTRA nicely with the new Machina cards. And … yeah. He’s good. I’m done.

N o V a
Quillbolt Hedgehog, this cards actually quite underestimated. When you control a tuner monster, you can just bring Quillbolt Hedgehog right back from the graveyard. Now, if it was a DARK monster, it'd be broken, maybe even limited or semi-limited. Considering if it was a DARK monster, you could Dark Grepher two Quillbolt to the graveyard and so on. This card works especially well with Junk Synchron and Quickdraw Synchron, because Junk Synchron revives a level 2 or below monster, which Quillbolt Hedgehog is a level 2, or you can discard it for Quickdraw Synchron so you can special summon Quickdraw, then since Quickdraw is a tuner monster you can just revive Quillbolt and synchro summon into Nitro Warrior or Junk Archer, since to my knowledge these are the only "Synchron" synchro monsters that are level 7.  This card also has its own "OTK" with Imperial Iron Wall and Mass Driver. Since Imperial Iron Wall prevents cards from being removed from play, Quillbolt will only keep going to the Graveyard, and so long as you have a tuner monster out you can keep bringing it back. With Mass Driver you can keep tributing it to do 400 points of damage for each time you tribute it. And thats basically how the OTK works. Quillbolt is a decent card, but really only fits in a few decks.

Greg Quillbolt Hedgehog:
 
     I don't have allot of experience with this card other than hypothetical combos I've discussed, and decks I've seen on the web.  I know there are OTKs that can be done with this card, Imperial Iron Wall, and some spell variation of Cannon Soldier like Mass Driver, but those multiple card combos where half the pieces aren't specifically searchable never seem to work out for me.  It's not a bad card, and perhaps now that the format is slowing down it will see some play.  But I'm not holding my breath or anything.
 
Traditional:  2.0  (there have to be more combos here I don't know about)
Advanced:   2.0

Otaku

Short and sweet: if Quillbolt Hedgehog were Dark it’d be everywhere, easily dumped into Graveyards to await a Tuner monster and resurrection.  It is an Earth monster, though, and too big a Machine for Machine Duplication.  I guess there isn’t much else.

 

Oh yeah, the OTK.  You can combine this card with any easy to summon Tuner, Imperial Iron Wall, and anything that can Tribute it for damage (like Cannon Soldier) and you have a OTK.  The only thing that makes me question it is… I hadn’t heard of it before researching for this CotD; it makes me wonder if there is something amiss.

 

Go.  Abuse it!
