Today’s card of the week is Vylon Matter. This is a spell card with mad support to the up and coming Vylon series, as well as any equip heavy deck.  Its effect goes like this: Select 3 equip spells in your graveyard and add them to your deck, then activate one of the two following effects: you can either destroy 1 card your opponent controls, or draw a card.

This card in the appropriate deck is very useful. The first thing it does is replenish your equip spells, which is most likely the focus if you’re playing this card at all. Then you can either draw, making it a one for one in hand advantage, or destroy any card on your opponent’s field. What makes this card extremely potent is its ability to outmaneuver stardust. Because you choose the effect after the equips are put into the deck, you don’t choose the second effect until resolution.

And since stardust has to negate the activation, it misses its timing and can’t stop it.

There are down sides to this card. Since you must choose exactly 3 equip cards, if one gets removed, the effect fizzles. But all in all, the flexibility of this card is what makes it so good.

Traditional: 3/5 (in proper deck)
Advanced: 4/5 (in proper deck)

Art: 2/5

Vylon Matter is a great new spell, though it won't work in the majority if decks out there. You return three Equip Spells from your Graveyard to your Deck. Then, you draw a card or destroy a card of your opponent's.
 
Since most Equips are unplayable in today's environment (even the good ones), you can't really splash this into any deck and get away with it. The best decks to take advantage of Vylon Matter are those set to abuse Power Tool Dragon. Gigavise and Morphtronic variants are the usual suspects. In Gigavise, your deck's fuel runs out when you're out of copies of Supervise. Instead of relying on Hidden Armory to reuse them (since it restricts you), you could use Vylon Matter to not only reuse your equips, but get an extra card or destruction out of it. The same applies to Morphtronic decks playing United We Stand or Double Tool C&D.
 
Unfortunately Vylon Matter won't see any serious competitive play outside of combo decks like those. Equip Spells are all but obsolete, with even extremely powerful ones like United We Stand being unlimited and still seeing no play. Being restricted to a small number of low tier strategies hurts Vylon Matter's score in the end, even if it is good support for those strategies.
 
Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
