Yusei’s Synchrons have been taking inspiration from the other Signers recently, and today we look at a new Synchron based off Crow and Black-Winged Dragon: Assault Synchron.

Assault Synchron is a Level 2 DARK Machine Tuner with 700 ATK and 0 DEF. Stats usually don’t matter on Tuners, but being a DARK Machine is great. During your Main Phase, you get to Special Summon this card from the hand by taking 700 damage, then you can only summon Synchro Monsters from the Extra Deck as long as it remains in the Monster Zone. A fairly generic effect for a free Special Summon of a Level 2 Tuner. The 700 damage is so minimal, it doesn’t even matter, and you’re likely playing this to make Synchro plays anyways, so the lock doesn’t matter either. If a face-up Dragon Synchro(s) is tributed or banished (except in the Damage Step), you can also banish this card from the graveyard to target one of those monsters to Special Summon it. Fitting for Stardust Dragon’s effect to tribute itself or maybe banishing Black-Winged Dragon on the field for Black-Winged Assault Dragon maybe? This would of been so much better if Chaos Ruler was unbanned in the TCG like it currently is in the OCG, since that’s really what breaks this card over there. At least we got Accel Synchro Stardust Dragon to revive after you tribute it for its effect. Hard once per turn on each effect is more than fair. This is a pretty good generic Tuner to have in the game. TCG doesn’t have the same tools that really made this broken in the OCG, but I still can’t ignore how great of a card this is, and arugably it isn’t even the best Synchron we got this year, but more on that at a later date.

Advanced Rating: 4.25/5

Art: 4/5 Mostly since it’s cool that the card is taking from Crow’s Duel Runner.
