All right, welcome to Thunder week, as we continue
to delve into Return of the Duelist. Spirit
Converter, a Continuous Magic card, that has at
least one rather unique ability. Hypocritical as
this will sound (at least in tomorrow's review) I
don't find the first effect of this card all that
necessary. Once a turn, you can target an XYZ
Monster you control, and attack one Level 4 Light
Monster you control to the XYZ as Material. That's
not bad, but it sucks it has to be Level 4, and it
can't just be from your Hand and/or Graveyard, you
have to control it. Now the latter ability is good,
when this card is destroyed, you can target two
Level 4, Light, Thunder Monsters from your
Graveyard, and add them to your Hand. If they exist
in the Graveyard, this card turned itself into a +1.
Honestly, despite the second effect, hell, both
effects, I say take it or leave it.
It's a new week and these cards are best suited
for a card we reviewed last week, Number 91: Thunder
Spark Dragon. Today we get to review Spirit
Once per turn: You can target one Xyz monster you
control; attach 1 level 4 LIGHT monster to that
target as an Xyz material. When this cards is sent
from the field to the graveyard: Target 2 level 4
LIGHT-Thunder type monsters with the same name in
your graveyard; add those targets to your hand.
This card can help out with Xyz monsters by giving
them what they need, those precious Xyz materials.
But where this card shines most is in a Thunder deck
built around the Hunder family and Thunder Spark
Dragon. With this card, and the Hunder monsters
ability to swarm the field with three or four
monster in a turn, you can get Thunder Spark Dragon
to 4 Xyz materials in a turn, helping you get to
that all powerful 5 Xyz materials. Those monsters,
along with Thunder King Rai-Oh can make for a pretty
mean Thunder deck. Even Batterymen can use this,
even though the only level 4 Batteryman monster is
AAA. When Spirit Converter goes from the field to
the graveyard, you can get 2 level 4 Light-Thunder
type monsters with the same name from your grave to
your hand. A bit restrictive, but not bad. Thunder
lovers, this is for you, because this is pretty much
Thunder support....and they really needed it.
Tomorrow: MOAR Xyz SUPPORTING!
