This week we're reviewing some Generation Force cards, starting with Gagaga Magician.  This is a Level 4, Spellcaster type Monster, with 1500 attack and 1000 defense.  Now, once per turn, during your Main Phase, you can declare a Monster Level (1-8) and this cards Level becomes equal to that until the End Phase.  This would be great for Synchro Summoning except this isn't a Tuner (not the end of the world) but what is, is the fact that Gagaga Magician cannot be used as a Synchro Material Monster...Anyway, obviously the use here is for XYZ Monsters and Summoning, as some of the new ones do require much higher Levels than Level 4 and below as we currently see.  You can only control one face-up Magician at a time, so that adds a little balance I suppose.  Outside of XYZ, I see little to no use for this card.

Gagaga Magician kicks off our Generation Force Week. This Magician typifies Xyz support. Its effect allows it to change its level once per turn to anything you need from 1-8. This allows you to run the gambit of Xyz in your extra deck. Being a DARK Spellcaster is nice but it won’t really matter much and neither will its attack and defense, due to you will be using it to Xyz summon the moment you summon it. And this card has great design balance, you can only control one at a time and it can not be used for a Synchro summon.

Gagaga Magician

Our first review of Generation Force, Gagaga Magician has nothing that really stands out other than its name. A Dark Spellcaster, the attribute is great and the type is decent, but with 1500 attack and 1000 defense, it better have an amazing effect. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case here. This magician can change its own level during your main phase, but cannot be used as a synchro material monster. This card is obviously supposed to be used for Xyz summons, but since there really is no good way to summon this monster (other than normal summon), it may not be ideal to play this card. You may be able to use Gagaga as pretty much any Xyz material, but there are better cards out there to do it. If you could have more than 1 on the field at a time or if it could be used as a synchro material monster, then it might be better.

Traditional: 1/5

Gagaga Magician

This is Generation Force week, and starting it is (Lady) Gagaga Magician. This card can change its Level to anything from 1 to 8, but it cannot be used as a Synchro Material Monster. If it can change its Level, but can't Synchro, it must be Xyz Monster Support. Basically, he...she...it(?) allows you to make just about any generic Xyz Monster you want. It may be somewhat useful in basic Xyz-based decks, but it probably won't see play too much, since there are a lot of decks that can drop at least two monsters with the same level much faster.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5


Skyphantom

and we come to generation force week, and with Yuma's favorite monster: gagaga magician, with a rather average 1500/1000 body on a dark spellcaster, both good. Now, what lady gaga magician can do is change his/her level from 1-8 once per turn, but can't be used for synchro material for obvious reasons. He is great for exceeds, opticamoflauge armor, or advance draw. Hell be interesting to see what people do with him.

Traditional:2/5
Advanced:3/5
