I love the names for these cards. Layer makes
sense because of all the XYZ monsters this deck can
summon. Super Quantum Red Layer besides having a
great name is a Level 5 Fire Warrior-type monster
with 2000 Atk and 800 Def. So it's no Cyber Dragon,
but this card is technically easier to summon with
its effect. Level 4 might have been better to work
with ROTA, but Level 5 opens up Volcasaurus and
other Rank 5 plays. Fire only works with 200 Def,
but no card is perfect.
Super Quantum Red Layer has 3 effects that can
all be used in the same turn and all activate in
different places. The first effect is for it to
Special Summon itself if you control no monsters.
This effect makes it useful in non-Quantum decks
that need a quick summon. Furthermore, this plus
some Blue Layer and Emergency Teleports are an
alternate tribute engine in Monarch decks, but more
on that another day. The next 2 effects can only be
done once per turn. After it's Normal or Special
Summoned, you can target a Super Quant card in your
grave and put it in your hand. XYZ monsters would go
back to the Extra Deck, regular monsters including
itself can be used that same turn, or you can get
back the Field Spell or the Trap. Finally, if this
card hits the Graveyard from anywhere, you can
target a Super Quant monster in your grave except
itself for a neutered Special Summon. Just because
it can't activate its effects doesn't mean it can't
attack or be used for more XYZ plays.
Score: 4/5 Super Quantum have a huge boss monster
and a good Field Spell to get it out. The deck as a
whole might not be worth that, but this card has
great utility and versatility.
Art: 5/5 Red is my favorite color.
