Crystron Ametrix 

Crystron Ametrix is one of those cards where I just feel it got the shaft, either by mistake or by unwillingness to create a monster that is too strong. As a generic level 5 machine synchro monster, there’s a lot to like from Ametrix, especially as a water type with high ATK for its level. But why couldn’t he have changed the monsters to face-down defense position? And why couldn’t he have gotten his special summon effect if he left in any way, as opposed to just by destruction? Are we really at a point where we’re worried about cards being too strong? 

The main reason you’re running Ametrix is for the potential to synchro summon Crystron Phoenix, which is the goal of Crystron decks. Even in the OCG, which has Gliongandr (a Trishula at heart), Phoenix is much more attractive, not to mention easier to summon. And while there are other generic level 5 synchro monsters you can pair with Quandax to get out Pheonix, only T.G. Librarian offers real incentive to do so, and he’s at 1. So until Crystron decks get more support, Ametrix is a must-run, which gives the monster a bright future despite its detrimental condition. However, I say “detrimental” lightly because his effects are by no means ill-advised. They’re just not potent. It’s probably going to be to your benefit a majority of the time. 

I hope Crystron gets more support in the future, because at the moment it feels like one of those archetypes that gets a brief introduction and is soon forgotten (Amorphage, Black Scorpion, Guardians, Iron Chain… breaks my heart to remember you all). And should it get that support, Ametrix will still be used frequently, unless a very similar level 5 generic synchro comes along to specifically replace it. 

Advanced: 3/5
Future Potential: 3/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Crystron Ametrix is an interesting Machine-Type Synchro for the Crystron archetype.
 
Good stats for a Level 5, a Zero Gravity effec ton all Special Summoned opponents monsters is a good effect, and with 2500ATK you'll likely be able to take they down with this and other monsters on your field of the field. If Ametrix was Synchro Summoned, then it will replace itself once destroyed. It doesn't have to hit the grave to have this effect happen, which is always nice against banish effects, and once you Special Summon a Cryston with this effect (non-Synchro) and Special Summon it, you could potentially bring out another Ametrix if you have another monster on the field due to sevearl of the Cryston monsters having a Quick effect to Synchro Summon.
 
It is easy to summon, has a good effect that can swing the game, and you could bring out another copy upon its destruction if things line up your way.
 
Advanced-3/5
Art-4/5

The Crystron Archtype is a very interesting one, and while this is the only one we review this week (I have a week of them coming soon) much like yesterday, not all the pieces of this family are in the English game yet.  Ametrix is a Level 5, Water, Synchro Monster, also a Machine (as I believe most, if not all these cards are) with 2500 attack and 1500 defense.  Generically Synchro Summoned with a Tuner and one or more non-Tuner Monsters.  These guys like to swarm and Special Summon, and you'll see part of that in the latter part of the effect here.  When Synchro Summoned, you can change all your opponent's Special Summoned Monsters to Defense position.  If this card (after being Synchro Summoned) is destroyed by Battle or Effect, you can Special Summon a non Synchro Crystron from your Graveyard.  That Monster is targeted, note that.  But anyway, this is one of the stronger, and better cards in the Deck, especially given what's available right now.
