This is a new Field Spell support card released in Primal Origins. Its first effect is to provide a small ATK and DEF boost of 200 to all "Scrap" monsters on the Field, keep in mind not just yours but ALL "Scrap" monsters.

Now to the important part of this card, "When a face-up "Scrap" monster(s) on the field is destroyed by a card effect and sent to the Graveyard (except during the Damage Step): You can Special Summon 1 "Scrap" monster from your Deck."

This card allows you to perform some quite interesting combo's, first that comes to mind is Scrap Dragon, "Pop" one of your own Scrap monsters, Destroy an opponents card and then replace that monster with another Scrap monster from your Deck for an easy +1.

Certainly this card also gives some use to Scrap Shark as its effect to destroy itself is incredibly easy to activate, and then this serves to be able to be used as a pseudo Foolish Burial as well as being able to be replaced another Scrap monster. This actually provides you with an opportunity to Summon either Scrap Dragon or Scrap Twin Dragon during this same turn. Basically you send either Scrap Goblin OR Scrap Beast to your Graveyard (both are Tuners) and then Special Summon to your side of the field Scrap Golem. Scrap Shark + Scrap Factory is quite a potent combo, and gives use to a card that I'd otherwise consider one that should stay in your tins.

And the final good/ easy combo is to use Scrap Orthos, this requires you to destroy another Scrap monster (you control) when you Special Summon it, obviously you don't simply have to choose itself as a target, you can always choose another Scrap monster to utilise its "If this card is destroyed by the effect of a Scrap monster" effect to gain additional advantages.

You could also use this card to good advantage in a mirror match also as if your opponents Scrap monster was "Unfortunate" enough to die, you would be able to use Scrap Factory's effect which could potentially become quite handy.

Finally, being a Field Spell card its searchable via Terraforming, as well as several other cards, but I would be considering only Terraforming as the relevant card in this instance.

I don't know how ultimately useful Scrap Factory will be in increasing the competitiveness of Scraps, but as I see it its certainly a step in the right direction and provides a much needed boost for the Deck.

And of course the longer you can manage to actually keep this card on the Field, the more potential advantage that you could be generating, and keeping it for more than even 1 turn makes it worthwhile.

 

Traditional: 1.5 (Sorry, but Trad is ruled by everything broken, this has no place here).

Advanced: 3.75 (Provides great advantage, searchable and allows for some real potential).

Scrap Factory

I saw T-Rex's review, it was quite good and I have to concur with him.  Scraps haven't been competitive and probably won't be competitive now.  But Factory does give them opportunities.  For those who don't know Scrap monsters function by being destroyed by card effects like Scrap Beast.  This spell card ensures a +1 each turn for an archetype that sorely needs it.  

What most people remember of Scraps is the almighty Scrap Dragon, and scraps surely need more monsters.  Especially more monsters like him.  The good news is I feel like this card is very much like Lonefire Blossom.  Remember when Lonefire was a great searcher but there were no great Plant monsters?  Then all of a sudden great Plants like Spore, Dandy and Sylvans came out?  This could very well happen for Scraps so it might be worth taking a chance and acquiring a few copies of Scrap Factory for now.

Traditional - 1.5
Advanced - 3.75
