Hello Pojo Fans,
 
PSY-Frame week continues with PSY-Framegear Beta. Plenty of ways to Special Summon this monster (which is good), but the best way is its own effect. Stopping an attack and ending the Battle Phase is good, Battle Fader effect is useful. Special Summoning itself on your opponents turn is good to keep field presence, and Special Summoning a specific (stronger) monster from anywhere is great. Tack on monster destruction and this card is a great card to use.
 
Unable to be Normal Summoned/Set is a negative, as well as to activate the great effects it has you also have to be monsterless on the field, and be able to Special Summon “PSY-Driver” as well. If all your copies of “PSY-Driver” are banished then this card's effect isn't useful.
 
Good monster for the archetype, but useless outside the archetype unless you also tech “PSY-Driver”
 
Advanced-3.5/5
Art-2/5

So now we come to the gears that make this engine go. I picked PSY-Framegear Beta because its effect alliterates so well. Beta is for Battles. More on that in a minute. The gears are all Level 1 or 2 Light Psychic-type Tuner Monsters that cannot be Normal Summoned or Set and have 0 Def. Beta is Level 1 with 700 Atk. Alpha is Level 1 with 500 Atk. Gamma is Level 2 with 1000 Atk. Delta is Level 2 with 1200 Atk. Finally, Epsilon is Level 2 with 1500 Atk. All of the raw stats are bad. The only important parts are that they are PSY-frames and they are the only Tuners the deck has. 
 
PSY-Framegear Beta is a Hand Trap that activates during your opponent's turn. All the gears need you to have no monsters and only work during your opponent's turn. When your opponent battles, you activate Beta. Beta must be Special Summoned at the same time with PSY-Frame Driver (Level 6) to negate the attack and destroy the opponent's monster. Hopefully, you have Circuit on your side of the field to perform any Level 7 Synchro Summon. Usually you will summon Zeta, but any generic Level 7 monster that doesn't require specific material will work. With the Level 2 gears, you would summon Omega or any generic Level 8 monster. 
 
Something worth noting is that none of the gears have once per turn effects. In some strange scenario where your opponent attacks, you activate Beta, Synchro Summon Zeta, they use Torrential Tribute, they activate a Trap Monster and attack again, you can activate another Beta from your hand and then Synchro Summon again. All the gears work that way. If you activate Beta and they chain anything that isn't a Counter Trap, you can still use another gear because you still control no monsters. With Circuit you could probably Synchro Summon only once, but I'm not sure on that. Beta is an excellent anti Battle card, I just wish the other gears' names worked with their effects.
 
Score: 4/5 Emergency Teleport works on all the gears.

Normally when I look at themed cards, I tend to give them a high score based on their capatability with cards within the same theme. This review is no different, because PSY-Framegear Beta is a MUST in its deck. It's a Tuner that helps bring out the big guns, and its summoning requirement actually gets you two PSY-Frame themed monsters this, and Driver specifically for the price of one. How could you say no to that?

Of course, you'll want to run all of the other PSY-Frame cards in the same deck that you put this one in; this is a theme that really does not mesh well with others. With the Pendulum Magicians from last week, you can have a little experimental fun by splashing them with other Pendulums; this theme, however, is far more linear. If you have this card and want to play it, collect the whole set of PSY-Frames.

Final Score: 5/5
