roposphere

Simple effect.  It's unaffected by traps but you need to tribute a Winged-Beast for it.  Basically, it's only remotely useful in a Winged-Beast deck but with the nature of that deck type, there are probably other spell/trap negation/removal cards that will be better.  As it stands, Jinzo is a better monster that eclipses this card because it negates ALL of your opponent's traps.  Or, in the order direction, Elemental Hero Wildheart is a little weaker but way more versatile.

It's a vanilla (no effect) on Special Summon in an era where Tribute Monsters no matter how good they are are less valuable overall.  Not a terribly bad card but I don't see much room for it anywhere.
 
Traditional - 1.0
Advanced - 2.0 (context: Winged-Beast deck)

Troposphere
WIND/Winged Beast/Effect/Level 6/2400/2000
If you Tribute Summon this card, the Tribute must be Winged Beast-Type. This card is unaffected by the effects of Trap Cards.
 
Next up this week we have a card used by Atticus Rhodes from the Brilliant GX manga; Troposphere in the Manga Atticus is actually portrayed as a powerful duellist, so his cards should be a lot better.
 
Statwise Troposphere is a WIND/Winged-Beast, the best kind of Winged-Beast with 2400 ATK always good to see on a level 6 and 2000 DEF which is very good for a monster with such good ATK.
 
Effectwise first off is the condition that if it’s Tribute Summoned it must be done so by Tributing a Winged-Beast. Well; chances are you will be using this guy in a Winged-Beast deck and of course he can still be special summoned, so the condition is largely pointless. Its main effect is the same as what it has in the manga, it is unaffected by the effects of Trap Cards. So you have an E-Hero Wildheart with more ATK and DEF which is good.
 
Overall a solid level 6 monster, there is never anything wrong with some protection, not the greatest level 6 monster but for Winged-Beast players it might be something to look at.
 
Traditional: 2.5/5
Advanced:  3/5

Troposphere is almost like a worse version of Jinzo, which isn't good for its playability, as Jinzo isn't a very good card anymore.  Comparing the two, they have the same attack and are both 1 tribute monsters.  Jinzo doesn't allow your opponent to use traps at all, while Troposphere is simply unaffected by traps himself.  Troposphere allows you to play traps, but it doesn't provide protection to the rest of your plays like Jinzo does.  Which is better for you is largely a case by case basis.
 
The main thing that kills Troposphere's playability when compared to Jinzo is that you can only tribute Winged-Beast monsters to summon Troposphere.  This means that tribute engines like Frogs that can actually make its summon manageable won't work for summoning Troposphere.  You'd have to use a Winged-Beast tribute engine, and to my knowledge there aren't any good ones.  This forces you to take a minus to summon Troposphere or find a way to special summon him, like Call of the Haunted, Ninjitsu Art of Transformation, or Soul Charge.
 
Rating: 1/5 (Terrible)
