I see Prominence Hand as the weakest of the three we look at.  This one is Special Summoned just by controlling any of the other three.  The 2000 defense is good, but it lacks the destruction effect of the others.  Fire and Pyro aren't the most desirable either but can work well enough in that Deck obviously.  The other two Hands have some good potential, this one, I'm just not quite seeing it.  Tune in tomorrow for..not a Hand.

To truly understand today’s card, Prominence Hand, you will need to go back a read the reviews from the last two days on Fire Hand and Ice Hand. There are three things about Prominence Hand that make it playable with Fire and Ice Hand. First, you can special summon it from your hand when you have one of the above cards on the field. This allows you to summon some pretty awesome XYZ monsters like Evilswarm Exciton Knight and Number 101: Silent Honor ARK. Second, it is a Pyro monster so you can use it with Royal Firestorm Guards or use it with Fire Hand to make Infernal Flame Vixen. Third, it is a Fire monster so it can be used with Frost and Flame Dragon.
 
The real power of the “Hand” monsters lay with Fire and Ice Hand, but Prominence Hand can be a plus for you by making Exciton or 101. In the future, we will be working with Pendulum Monsters and Cosmic Dragons so Fire and Ice Hand will be more of a factor along with Skill Drain. I think you can make a fun deck with the “Hand” cards but I do not thing they are top tier deck types. They are useful in a side deck to take care of problematic cards that are hurting your deck like Royal Decree and Ophion.
 
Prominence Hand is not going to get as high of marks as the other two Hands because it is not as useful or splashable in other decks. Its use is deck specific and thus makes it not as playable, unless that deck is top tier which “Hand” decks are not.

Prominence Hand
FIRE/Pyro/Effect/Level 4/600/2000
If you control a "Magic Hand", "Fire Hand", or "Ice Hand", you can Special Summon this card (from your hand).
 
Next up we have Prominence Hand another card used by Gilag from Yu-Gi-Oh! ZeXal. Statwise Prominence Hand is another FIRE/Pyro monster which is good, with 600 ATK and 2000 DEF, so it is the usual low ATK/High DEF level 4 monster.
 
Effectwise, if you control a "Magic Hand", "Fire Hand", or "Ice Hand" you can special summon this from your hand. Special Summoning is good, and the fact it isn’t a once per turn effect means you can summon multiples of this in one turn. However, this has a huge problem in its card design and it is the same that has ruined cards like Dark magician Girl and Others,” the list of cards I can work with” effect. Forever now this card will only work with 3 cards, it doesn’t matter if more Hands are released, it will only work for with those 3 and that is sloppy and hurts this card.
 
Overall, a good defender and no “once per turn” condition does help, but the fact that this card is now limited to 3 cards doesn’t help.
 
Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2.5/5
