We spared you from using reviewing Mekk-Knight Avram because reviewing Normal Monsters typically doesn’t achieve much, plus we don’t want to check THIS out. Instead we will look at a great Field Spell for Rokkets, Boot Sector Launch.

Obligatory Terraforming mention because this is a Field Spell. BSL boosts your Rokkets by 300 ATK and DEF, a nice boost considering the Rokkets typically have good stats already in ATK or DEF. This card has two effects you can chose to use one of per turn.

  1. You can Special Summon 2 Rokkets from your hand in DEF Position.
  2. You can Special Summon Rokkets from the GY if your opponent controls more monsters than you up to the deficit.

Rokkets are based on getting Link Monsters out so they can target the Rokkets and trigger their effects, so this card is meant to give you Link Fodder. Currently they want to turbo out Borreload Dragon, but we are getting Borrelsword Dragon and Booster Dragon one day to give you more options. I imagine they will print a Borrelguard Dragon, but no guarantee on that. Boot Sector Launch does what Rokkets need to do, get Rokkets on the field. Rokkets have some great Spell Cards and this is one of them.

Advanced Rating: 4/5

Art: 4/5 I think they made the gun look more like a laser.


Field Magic to close out the week?  And a good one at that!  Boot Sector Launch does some very good things for the Rokket Archtype.  You gain a marginal attack/defense boost of 300 points to start, anything is better than nothing I suppose.  It’s enough to help but not enough to be overpowering you know?  Then you have your choice of two other effects that you’re able to use once per turn.  Special Summon two Rokkets in Defense position from your Hand, or Special Summon Rokkets from your Graveyard if your opponent controls more Monsters than you.  (Number is decided by how many more Monsters they control, you get to Special Summon until you’re even).  Rokkets are a fast deck (pun semi-intended) and this only makes them faster.  A great card for them
