Here's a mouthful, Construction Train Signal Red,
is our card today. This must have been a Syrus card,
and as such, would only really be appropriate in a
Roids Deck, despite this not being a Roid, but still
being a Machine. It's Level 3, Earth, Machine, with
a paltry 1000 attack and 1300 defense, but can be
Special Summoned from your Hand (in attack or
defense position) when your opponent declares an
attack. Plus he can't be destroyed by that Battle.
So he can save you from one attack, technically two
I suppose, but he's not very useful. Sad when even
the cards that have nifty tricks aren't worth
Construction Train Signal Red
When your opponent's monster declares an attack: You
can Special Summon this card from your hand, and if
you do, change the attack target to this card and
proceed to damage calculation. This card cannot be
destroyed by that battle.
Continuing our look at Dragons of Legend we have
Construction Train Signal Red a card used by Anna in
ZeXal. Statwise it’s an EARTH/Machine which is solid
with 1000 ATK and DEF which is nothing remarkable
for a level 3.
Effectwise Construction Train Signal Red joins
the likes of Battle Fader, Gagaga Gardna and others
in “the monster that is Special Summoned when you
are attacked” club. If it is special summoned that
way, to becomes the new target and you go straight
to damage calculation. Also for that 1 battle it
cannot be destroyed by battle. All the effects are
nice but there are so many of these cards out there
than Construction Train Signal Red doesn’t really do
anything different and many do things better. Battle
Fader can end the Battle Phase immediately and ones
like Gagaga Gardna have protection and better stats.
Overall, a pretty average card, it doesn’t bring
anything really new or special to the table.
Some will prefer Swift Iron
Scarecrow for the fact that it's protection can't be
countered or Gorz for the risk-reward nature, but
CTSR beats out Battle Fader for sure and offers
competition amongst the defensive handtraps.
1. It doesn't require a direct
attack. Any attack will trigger it.
2. It's not destroyed in
battle. It can be a wall against an entire swarm.
3. It's not banished when
destroyed, like Battle Fader, and can be every bit
as much a tribute
4. You can re-direct attacks
and essentially protect any monster you control.
5. Special summoning opens up
possibilities with XYZ's and more
Overall, it's for decks that
want an easy tribute or that want to protect their
monsters. If you protect one monster you control
and summon this one, you get 2 tributes for LADD or
whichever you choose. So, it has potential. Some
may find it a bit slow, but it will slow down your
opponent at least. You will need other cards to net
an advantage off this though. Like a tribute
monster or other XYZ material, or an aggro combo
waiting to happen. Take it for what it's worth.
It's a good (not great though) card.
You ever hear that expression "It's awful, but I
can't help looking, like a train wreck"? Obviously
you haven't since I just made it up, I think. The
point is trains. And things being awful. And trains
being awful. Yes...
Hello, my dear hoppity skippers, and welcome to
TerrorKing's review of a train card: Construction
Train Signal Red. It's not a very good card. Move on
with your life. Level isn't high enough to be used
consistently for Machina Fortress, it isn't Level
10, it has over 500 ATK despite being a Machine, not
having 1500 or more ATK despite being a Machine
(3000 ATK with Limiter Removal) and is a worse
Battle Fader/many other cards here with similar
effects to Battle Fader. Don't. Don't use this. This
card isn't a train wreck since generally you can't
help but looking at trains crash; it's an exciting
prospect. This is like looking at a regular train
running along the tracks on a normal day: so common
you don't even notice it. This card is such a train.
