Hello Pojo Fans,
Adamancipator Crystal – Dragite is the smaller version of the WATER Synchro for the archetype and the Main Deck monster you want to hit with the Adamancipator effects.
Special Summon it with an Adamancipator effect and you get a free draw. Simple, effective, what’s not to like? Each of the smaller Synchro versions can put themselves back into the deck by bouncing their bigger forms back to the Extra Deck from the field or the grave. Had that effect only been the field it would be terrible, but because it can cycle back its big form to put itself back onto the top of the deck, essentially guaranteeing a draw once an Adamancipator effect is activated, it is awesome. Once per turn restrictions are needed, otherwise you’d keep doing this over and over until you’d built up a board and had a full hand. The smaller forms of the different Attributes stack from the hand or grave to set up building your field, but this is a free draw, and that is better most of the time, if not all the time.
Until Next Time
Adamanciaptor week brings us to one of the archetype’s Crystals, so we’ll go with the one actually worth playing: Adamancipator Crystal – Dragite.
Dragite is a Level 4 WATER Rock with 0 ATK and 2200 DEF. A great DEF stat makes up for no ATK like yesterday, Rock works with the generic support that Type has, and WATER works with the best archetypal Synchro. Its first effect lets you draw a card if Special Summoned by the effect of an Adamancipator card, which is easy off all the Tuners, Risen – Raptite, and Adamancipator Signs. Free draws are always great, which is why this is the best Crystal in the archetype and the one that’s played. The second effect is if this is in your grave, you can target a WATER Synchro you control or in the grave to return it to the Extra Deck and this to the top of the Deck. Nice option to recover one of your boss Synchros to try and resummon it and put this on top to resummon off a Tuner for a free draw once again. It doesn’t come up often, but it’s nice to have it in the back pocket. Each effect here is a once per turn, since free draws can get insane in multiples. Dragite is a decent card in the archetype to get that free draw, even if all the Crystals are fairly boring in design. You never really want to draw them, even if summoning them helps you Special Summon a free Researcher or Seeker. Crystal – Dragite is a fine 1 or 2 of since you can get it to the top of your Deck by various effects, you don’t want to draw it, and you can always have the Haliqifibrax in your grave serve as the WATER you need.
Advanced Rating: 3.5/5
Art: 4/5 They’re pretty crystals, even if boring still.
Adamanciator Crystal-Dragite is next up. Level 4, Water/Rock, 0 attack but again an awesome defender at 2200. First, a Special Summon of this card by a Theme card nets you a free Draw.
Making this a is a logical choice to be brought out with our card from yesterday. If in your Graveyard, you can Target a Water Synchronize you control or in your Grave amen return it to the Extra Deck.
This card then then goes back to the top of your Deck. Meaning you should be able to grab an Extra Draw every turn. Once a turn peen effect, but you’d spam and abuse too fast if not.
Art: 3.5/5 The coloring here is great but the crystal kinda looks like a rocky egg
