T.G. Hyper Librarian, a widely heralded card, and with good reason. This guy has been splashed into many a Deck, and while not the most powerful Synchro Monster, shows just how much fun and important it is to Draw cards. This is a Level 5, Dark attributed, Spellcaster type Synchro Monster, with 2400 attack and 1800 defense. Synchro Summoned with one Tuner and one or more non-Tuner Monsters. Level 5 is quite easy to Synchro, and as referred to earlier...while face-up on the Field, each time a Synchro Monster is Synchro Summoned, Draw one card for each. T.G. Hyper Librarian adds some well needed speed to about any Deck you are willing to put it in. 2400 attack is solid for Level 5, I see no reason not to use it.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 4/5

T.G. Hyper Librarian is one of the best cards to come out in the game in my opinion. Not only is this Tech Genius easy to summon, but it really works well in or against Synchro decks. Before the last Ban List crippled this card, we had a number of decks that utilized Librarian to its fullest. Coelacanth/Trishula Spam and Plant/Synchro decks would pump out Synchro’s like crazy nuts, draw like a mad man, and swarm the field to overwhelm their opponents. Now that T.G. Hyper Librarian and other cards that made those decks possible are ether banned or limited, Hyper Librarian has lost much of its relevance.
 
If you are playing a deck that loves to summon Synchro monsters, you need to extra deck Hyper Librarian and I will tell you why. First, it is easy to summon in numerous decks. T.G. Striker + T.G. Warwolf, Reborn Tengu + Glow-Up Bulb, Junk Synchron + Doppelwarrier, Deep Sea Diva + Spined Gillman, and Fabled decks are just a few combinations that bring out T.G. Hyper Librarian. Every time you or your opponent brings out another Synchro monster you get to draw. As we know, draw power and card advantage wins games.
 
Now lets try one of these nifty combo’s and experience the full force of HYPER Librarian. Special Summon Quickdraw Synchron by ditching Tuningware. Summon Junk Synchron and use it’s effect to special summon Tuningware then special summon Doppelwarrior from your hand. Synchro Junk Synchron and Doppelwarrior into Librarian and get two tokens. Then One-For-One into a Glow-Up-Bulb and Synchro into a Formula Synchron using a token, to draw two cards. Special Summon Glow-Up-Bulb and synchro into T.G. Recipro Dragonfly using the other token to draw a card. Synchro Quickdraw Synchron and Tuningware into Turbo Warrior and draw 2 cards. Then Send Turbo Warrior to the grave with Drgonfly’s effect and get Quickdraw and Tuningware back. Then summon Junk Destroyer with Quickdraw, Tuningware, and Dragonfly to destroy 2 of your opponent’s cards and draw two cards. Then summon Arcanite Magician with T.G. Hyper Librarian and Formula Synchron and blow up two more of your opponent’s cards. Now let’s add everything up. For the 5 cards you had in your hand, you ended up with 2 monsters on the field and drew 7 cards. That is a plus 4 advantage. Then add in the 4 cards we destroyed and now we have an 8 card advantage. Of course your opponent probably would have conceded long before that, robbing you of the pleasure’s you would have received by rubbing it into his face. Just saying.
 
So yes, T.G. Hyper Librarian is a really great card despite the current ban list and a staple in many top tier decks.

Our last day on JUMP promo week, and we are checking out a card that one or two people might have heard of, T.G. Hyper Librarian. Librarian is a Level 5 Dark/Spellcaster Synchro with 2400 ATK and 1800 DEF. This card's effect is simple, While this card is face-up, whenever  a monster is Synchro summon, Draw a card. What can I say about this card that has not already been said. I've seen duelists draw like 2-3 times a turn just for having this card out on field.  You have it, you like to synchro, use it

Been a little while, but at least I’m here for Tech Genus Hyper Librarian!

This card was recently Limited because of the unheard of draw power this card can give. When a synchro summon happens while Libby’s on the field, you get to draw one card. Because the relative ease some decks can synchro summon, Librarian offsets much of the hand lost from the summonings. And let’s not forget how easy he is to summon. T.G. Striker and T.G. Warwolf summon this without even using a normal summon; Junk Synchron can make this through a normal summon. Reborn Tengu and Glow-up Bulb can make this and Catastor, in the same turn.

And with 2400 ATK, this can run over Brionac and Catastor as well as several Xyz monsters. See everyone next week!

Welcome to the final Card of the Day for the week. I apologize for my slight leave, finals are killing my spare time and essays, unfortunately, don’t write themselves. Today we are looking at what many consider a “staple synchro” and it very well should be.

T.G. Hyper Librarian
 Spellcaster/Lv 5/Dark/ 2400 ATK/ 1800 DEF
“While this card is face-up on the field, each time a Synchro Monster(s) is Synchro Summoned, draw 1 card for each.”

Do you have a deck that synchro summons constantly, then look no further my fellow Yu-Gio-Oh! Players, this card is perfect for you! Although this card is a Shonen Jump subscripton promo that warranted a $70 price tag when it was newely released and unlimited, is now under half that amount and limited to 1. This card alone can give you so much advantage. In today’s meta, especially at higher level tournaments, you are guaranteed to see this in the majority of Extra Decks. The best part of this card is that even if you opponent synchro summons, you can still get to draw a card. Over all, this card is one of the best synchros available and is almost a must in every extra deck.

Pros: Non-specific requirements, decent attack for a level 5, and amazing effect because it activates when you opponent synchro summons as well.

Cons: It can be run over in defense mode with a thunderking, alius, and other 1900 attackers.

Advanced: 5/5
Traditional: 5/5

T.G. Hyper Librarian
Lv. 5/DARK/Spellcaster-Synchro/2400A/1800D
"1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
While this card is face-up on the field, each time a Synchro Monster(s) is Synchro Summoned, draw 1 card for each."

He has alright stats for his level and a passable effect, but not a lot else. Since Synchros still see a good amount of play, his effect can come off without too much worry and extra cards are always nice. However, he's not the most spectacular monster out there. I suppose he'd work well in a spellcaster deck, and can easily be splashed into any sychro-using deck, which ups his playability a fair deal.

Not a lot to say about this guy. He's not too hard to get out and does what he does well enough.

Traditional: 2.75
Advanced: 3.50
