Great card for the deck that provides it with consistency, versatility and power.  On top of being a Foolish Burial, it can adjust its level to help summon almost any XYZ or Synchro you want.  Plus you can gain any Infernoid effect you want (sans ones that activate on summon) to help you with whichever situation you have. 
 
4.5/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
As the first monster in the “Infernoid” archetype that can be Normal Summoned, Dectron, while lacking ATK/DEF power, has a great effect to substitute for that.
 
A Foolish Burial effect of any “Infernoid” in your deck (except itself) to allow Dectron to increase its level and gain the effect(s) of that sent card. While the big Infernoid monsters who gain efffects off Special Summoning won't be as useful, all of the Infernoid monsters have the tribute ability to activate an effect, and that is what Dectron will rely on.
 
Having another way to bury a specific monster will help Special Summon other Infernoid monsters. Not only that, but Dectron can help clear the way for Infernoid monsters to get at your opponents Life Points. As a Tuner, it gives more flexibility to the archetype, opening up Synchro summons, and with its copy ability, gives you another option for Xyz Summons.
 
Stronger ATK/DEF would have been nice, but the deck needed a monster that could be Normal Summoned, and Dectron is a pretty good one for this decks playstyle.
 
Advanced-3/5

"Mean and Evil"

What better bait to lure this fellow than with a card he already talked about? I've been gone for a while, but even I can no longer deny it's time to return to a life of regularity - you may hopefully expect about a review a week from me again from now on. In other news, did you hear that main sets' rarity ratios will be changed starting next year? A long story short, all sets will have seven common cards, one rare, and a foil (1/6 chance of an ultra rare; 1/12 chance of a secret rare) - great news for any player if you ask me!
 
On to Infernoid Decatron, I'm sure that I don't have to explain why this is one of the best (read: 'most versatile') cards ever released: send Infernoid Harmadik to the graveyard to destroy a monster, or Infernoid Patrulea to destroy a spell/trap card. Sending an "Infernoid" of a higher level allows one to tribute Infernoid Decatron immediately to banish a card in the opponent's graveyard while setting up their own, or one can put some pressure on the opponent by sending Infernoid Devyaty/Infernoid Onuncu. All in all what we have here is a Breaker the Magical Warrior and an Exiled Force combined, with some more positives slapped on (I heard Tuners were useful): the perfect Reasoning target.
 
For those that want to read more, I talked about this card quite a lot in my review of Void Vanishment some months ago; one final note: if you're sending Infernoid Devyaty/Infernoid Onuncu for Infernoid Decatron's effect, you had better have a plan to remove it from the field yourself.
 
Advanced: 4/5. It can be argued that the "Infernoid" deck was out of date even before its release, but Infernoid Decatron would have been very good a year ago at least. Oh, before I forget: I still believe the deck can be built to take on the big guys, so this comment is not to be viewed as negative.

Infernoid Decatron has horrible stats. It's a Level 1 Fire Fiend-type monster with 500 Atk and 200 Def. At least it's a tuner. Level 1 tuners are ok. It is nice to have another decent target for One for One. Hopefully, the effects make up for it's stats.

So Infernoid Decatron has only one effect. When it's Normal or Special Summoned, you can an Infernoid monster to the Graveyard to add it's level to its 1 and then replace Infernoid Decatron's name and effects with the sent monster's name and effects. I'll admit to not knowing much about Infernoids, but gaining any of their effects sounds good. Also, having a high level tuner on the field is good for most decks. I am glad there is no "Once per turn" clause to the effect because then you can use 2 and XYZ summon almost anything.  

Score: 2/5 Versatility is good, but only as good as the Infernoid sent.

Art: 2/5

Yowza! Not only is this a Tuner monster, but it can also copy the name and effects of a card of your choosing, AND increases its own Level by that cards' star count! I have a feeling this card is going to be Limited or even Banned in the near future.

Yeeaah.... I really have nothing else to say except, this card is Boss! Have at it Synchro users.

Final Score: 4/5 (point deducted for non-Synchro decks)
