Well there isn't a WHOLE lot to this card. He fits
his theme very well ... Earth type Machines - the
I kinda like this group. And of them - he's the 2nd
best. Specifically because he allows u to grab any
other Machina monster from your deck when summoned.
9 times out of 10 u'll be grabbing the Fortress.
Depending on what the field looks like and what else
u have in your hand - u can probably them special
summon the Fortress to the field too, so now u have
an 1800 ATK Monster and a 2500 ATK monster on the
field. Attacking a clear field with a limiter
removal, and that's game. Yep - Gearframe is pretty
good in his specific deck.
Somebody PLEASE combine the Machina with the Ancient
Gear monsters somehow? ... Please?
Advanced: 3.5/5 (very close to a 4, but not quite
N o V a
Machina Gearframe, the Elemental Hero Stratos for
Machina mosnters. Solid 1800 attack points and can
equip itself to a Machine monster you control. If
the equipped monster would be destroyed you can
destroy Gearframe instead. Simple effect, and very
handy. You can add Machina Soldier or Machina
Fortress into your hand, which lets you special
summon Machina Fortress really easy, whether it be
by Fortresses ability or Machina Soldier later down
the line. There isn't much else to this card, being
a Union monster you could use Frontline Base to
special summon it but you couldn't use its ability
to search out a monster, however if you search out
another Machina Union monster like Machina
Peacekeeper, then use Frontline Base to Special
Summon Peacekeeper to the field and equip it to a
monster. There's a lot you can do with Machina
Gearframe, definately a must for any Machina deck.
starts out fairly normal: a Level 4
Earth/Machine with 1800 ATK and 0
DEF.It can access
Machina support, Earth support,
and Machine support.It can be dropped into play
and swing for decent damage.It is very weak in defense
position, but that’s really the only
dud stat and being a Machine is good
Now add in a useful theme supporting
Machina Gearframe is
summoned, you get to search your
deck for a
Machina monster and add it to
your hand.The only restriction is it
can’t search out itself (Konami has
Elemental Hero Stratos).That cements itself as a must
Machina decks.It seems simple: get a good
beatstick and a great search card.
Yet there is one other part to this
card, and it shows Konami is also
learning when it comes to Union
monsters: this is one!Instead of starting out as a
Union Monster, saddling it with low
stats and maybe giving it a great
effect, they start with a good deck
specific Monster and tack it on at
the end.Once per turn you can equip
this card to or remove it from
another Machine monster.If the monster it is equipped
to would be destroyed,
Machina Gearframe is destroyed
instead.Until now, I considered
Heavy Mech Support Platform to
be one of the best Union monsters:
while small it was insurance for
your best Machine monster.Adding a solid body to it is
very tempting, and gives
Machina Gearframe reason to show
up in just about any Machine deck.
