probably has to be my favourite card from the entire
High-Speed Riders set list.
Monster is also very easy to Summon, Level 8,
Generic, great ATK and DEF and with no restrictions
to it at all.
This card is
going to be highly sought after, especially since it
has numerous highly useful and beneficial effects
and can also recycle itself, so lets have a look at
what makes this card so damn good.
with its first effect, it, during either players
Main Phase can Banish itself, and then 1 random card
from your opponent’s hand, until your next Standby
Phase, and this has many highly useful applications,
for instance, if your opponent activates a Nekroz
Ritual card, you could use this effect to
potentially Banish the monster that your opponent is
hoping to Summon, meaning that they will instead end
up not only wasting their Ritual card, but they will
also have to reveal their hand to you to prove that
they cannot Summon any Ritual monsters from their
hand. You can also use this effect to “Snipe” cards
from your opponent’s hand as well, this could
prevent them from performing follow up plays or
Summons that they would otherwise be able to do, and
even the loss of a card for an opponent can at least
work in a psychological way, the potential to be hit
by this card is scary, and can force simply by its
this effect of PSY-Framelord Omega is a Quick
effect, it can easily escape most Spell and Trap
cards, however, since it is an effect to Banish
itself, you can chain to its effect in order to
Negate it, Destroy it or other, in this way, think
of it like Wind-Up Rabbit.
Do keep in
mind though that your opponent will have to wait
until you either do something, or pass during your
Main Phase before you can use Omega’s effect, and
this actually brings about an interesting situation
which Monarchs and some Decks that use Tribute
monsters can create.
Standby Phase, activate The Monarchs Stormforth,
then when it passes to your Main Phase, as your
first Action for the turn, Tribute Summon Omega for
your Tribute monster, this way your opponent will
not be able to use its effect and thus cannot escape
being used as a Tribute monster… Hooray if you are
using Monarchs I guess!
And for what
well may be the easiest way of all to avoid PSY-Framelord
Omega from pinching your card(s) and nicking off, if
you do not have any card(s) in hand it will not be
able to even activate its effect, or if you can
chain any of your cards in hand to the effect of
Omega, so that you have no cards left in your hand,
Omega’s effect will not be able to resolve and so it
will stay on the field.
ways, how you play around Omega will already be
familiar to you, just think Nekroz of Trishula.
effect, which you can only use during your
opponent’s Standby Phase also has great
applications, here you can return a Banished card…
CARD!!! To the Graveyard, and this provides great
benefit to any/ all Decks that Banish cards for part
of an Effect or Summon, and can even help to hinder
some Decks/ plays to this additionally.
clearly, PSY-Framelord Omega boosts Infernoids
considerably, returning monsters to the Graveyard
allows for additional Summoning if needed, and also
may help to recover from an opponent’s otherwise
untimely use of Retaliating “C” against it.
can hope to gain from this card as not only can it
be used to return a required card back into the
Graveyard, but it can also at least effectively be a
great follow up play against your opponent after
you’ve already upset them by Summoning Trishula.
general, returning a card to your Graveyard could be
used to return a Glow-Up Bulb that you haven’t used,
a Performage Damage Juggler so that you can use its
effect during your next turn or even to return a
Mezuki so that you can Summon a Zombie from your
Graveyard during your turn.
those of you who hate Lightsworn, you can also use
this effect to prevent your opponent from adding a
Judgment Dragon that has been Banished via the
effect of Eclipse Wyvern, obviously before your
opponent would get the opportunity to do so!
And in what
may be the greatest upside benefit of its effect,
you CAN return face-down Banished cards to the
Graveyard, and this effect could come in highly
useful for those few times when a Banished card that
is face-down would be far better off returned to
And for its
final effect, if PSY-Framelord Omega does happen to
make its way into your Graveyard, during your Main
Phase you can return this card and any other card
from either players Graveyard back into the Deck.
Not only does this mean that this card recycles
itself, meaning that realistically, 1 Omega in your
Side Deck will almost always be enough, but maybe
even better, you can return either a card back to
your Deck that would be beneficial to you, or you
can use this effect to disrupt your opponent,
possibly by returning a Performage Trick Clown to
your opponent’s Deck for instance
all of the above already suggests quite how good
this card actually is, and the impact that it can
potentially have on the game, I haven’t had to
mention PSY-Frame’s once, and this card is truly
“Boss” for that Archetype, allowing them to Special
Summon upon clear fields easier and more
This card is GOOD, really good, it not only supports
Meta, but it can also be used as equally and
effectively against Meta of almost any type.
This is a
must have card, regardless of whether you’ll be
using it in your current Deck or not.
