Who here loves some good World Legacy lore? Hello Pojo Readers, Crunch$G back here again with another What You Should Know, this time on the Dark Neostorm main booster set. This set follows the trend of the last few and now focuses on Xyz Summoning in the VRAINS era, but it still has some Ritual, Fusion, and Synchro support to keep every other VRAINS archetype up to date with the summoning mechanics of the past. There’s also a ton of good generic cards in here, some noteworthy imports, and the World Legacy series has a ton of cards to talk about since that story seems to be approaching an end very soon, and we even got legacy support for many different archetypes, even those that haven’t seen support since they were first released, so without further ado, let’s get into Dark Neostorm.
Cyberse Xyz Evolution
The Cyberse cards now have support to help you Xyz Summon, as we probably expected after Cybernetic Horizon, Soul Fusion, and Savage Strike. Firewall Guardian is a Level 4 that can be Special Summoned from the grave if used for a Link Material (but it is banished if it leaves the field) and you can banish Firewall Guardian from the grave when a battle between your Link Monster and an opponent’s Link Monster occurs to negate the attack, make the opponent’s monster ATK become 0 until the end of the turn, and it’s unaffected by effects that isn’t its own. Grid Sweeper is another Level 4 that can be Special Summoned from the hand if there is a face-up Field Spell in the Field Zone and you can banish it from your grave and a Link Monster you control to destroy a card your opponent controls. Firewall eXceed Dragon is the Xyz you’d expect and it’s a generic Rank 4 of any 2+ Level 4 monsters, this Xyz Summoned card gains 500 ATK and DEF times the Link Rating of Link Monsters that are Linked to this, and once per turn you can detach a material from this to revive any Link-4 Cyberse Link to a zone where it would point to this, but you can’t Special Summon or attack directly for the rest of the turn. Cyberse Reminder is a generic Rank 3 of any 2 Level 3 monsters, can detach a material to add a Cynet Spell/Trap from your graveyard to your hand, and if this Xyz Summoned card is destroyed by battle or opponent’s card effect then you can Special Summon any 2 differently named Level 4 Cyberse monsters from your deck with their effects negated and for the rest of the turn you cannot Special Summon cards from the Extra Deck except Cyberse monsters when you use either of this card’s effects. Cynet Mining is a Normal Spell that lets you discard a card to search for any Level 4 or lower Cyberse monster. Finally, I’ll talk about the new Salamangreat support since there’s only two cards. Salamangreat Fennec is a Level 3 that can be Special Summoned from the hand or graveyard if a monster Special Summoned from the Extra Deck was destroyed by battle or opponent’s card effect (but it is banished when it leaves the field) and if Fennec is sent to the graveyard for the Link Summon of a Link-2 or higher Cyberse Link then you can search for any Salamangreat Normal Spell. Salamangreat Recureance is a Normal spell that lets you add 2 Salamangreat monsters with different names from your graveyard to your hand and if this set card was destroyed by a card effect and sent to the graveyard then you can search for any Salamangreat Spell/Trap from your deck.
Next up is another wave of Dinowrestler support. Eskrimamenchi is a Level 6 that can be Normal Summoned without tributing if you control another Dinowrestler monster and if your opponent Special Summons a monster during your turn while this is in the graveyard, then you can target and Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Dinowrestler from your graveyard and add this card to your hand. Dinowrestler Coelasilat is a Level 2 Tuner that once per duel can be Special Summoned from the hand if you control no monsters, but it cannot be used as Link Material except for a Dinowrestler if Special Summoned this way. Dinowrestler Martial Anga is a Level 5 that during damage calculation if your Dinowrestler battles a monster with higher ATK, then you can discard this card to make your monster unable to be destroyed in that battle and end the Battle Phase after the Damage Step and during the End Phase, if this card is in the graveyard because it was sent there via its effect that turn and your opponent controls more monsters, then you can Special Summon it from the graveyard. Dinowrestler Chimera T Wrextle is a Fusion of a Dinowrestler Link and any other Dinowrestler, prevents the opponent from using Spells/Traps when it battles, deals piercing damage, prevents your opponent from targeting other monsters for attacks, gains 500 ATK when it destroys a monster in battle, and it destroys all Attack Position monsters your opponent controls if it was destroyed via a card effect. Dinowrestler Giga Spinosavate is a Level 8 Synchro of any Dinosaur Tuner and any non-Tuners, prevents your opponent from using Spells/Traps when it battles, prevents your opponent from attacking other monsters, can once per turn target and destroy a monster your opponent controls, and if this face-up card would be destroyed you could instead destroy another card you control. Dinowrestler Terra Parkourio is a Link-2 of any 2 Dinowrestlers, has Up and Left arrows, lets you add a Dinowrestler from your graveyard to your hand if you activate World Dino Wrestling, and if it is sent to the graveyard as Link Material then you can revive any Dinowrestler in your graveyard in Defense Position, but you cannot Special Summon for the rest of the turn except Dinowrestlers. Tyrant Dino Fusion is a Quick-Play Spell that lets you Fusion Summon a Dinowrestler by using monsters you control as material and the first time the Fusion Monster would be destroyed by battle or card effect, it isn’t.
Remembering Your Destiny
Just like how last set had Neos support, this set has the return of Destiny HEROs. Destiny HERO – Drawhand is a Level 4 that lets each player draw a card if Special Summoned off a HERO effect and during the next Standby Phase after it is sent to the graveyard, it can be revived from the grave but it is banished when it leaves the field. Destiny HERO – Dominance is a Fusion of any 3 Destiny HEROs, lets you look at the top 5 cards of either player’s deck once per turn during your Main Phase and place them back in any order, lets you draw a card if it destroys a monster in battle, and if this Fusion Summoned card is destroyed, then you can revive any 3 Level 9 or lower Destiny HEROs with different names from your graveyard. Xtra HERO Cross Crusader is a Link-2 of any 2 Warrior Monsters, has Bottom Left and Bottom Right arrows, revives a Destiny HERO when Link Summoned, can tribute a Destiny HERO to search for any HERO with a different name than the tributed monster from your deck, and prevents you from Special Summoning any monsters besides HEROs the turn you use either of this card’s effects. Fusion Destiny is a Normal Spell that lets you Fusion Summon any Fusion that lists a Destiny HERO monster as material by using monsters in your hand or deck as material, but for the rest of the turn after it resolves you cannot Special Summon outside of DARK HEROs and the Fusion is destroyed during the End Phase of the next turn. Finally, D – Tactics is a Continuous Trap that can boost your Destiny HERO monsters by 400 ATK during your Standby Phase (even when this leaves the field), can banish a card from your opponent’s hand (at random), field, or graveyard if you Special Summon a Level 8 or higher Destiny HERO or Destiny End Dragoon to your field, and it can search for any Destiny HERO if it is destroyed by a card effect in the Spell/Trap zone.
An Assault of Revenge
For the first time since they debuted in Crimson Crisis and the Yusei Tins in 2009, we see support for Assault Mode cards. Psi-Reflector is a Level 1 Tuner that searches for any Assault Mode Activate or any card that lists Assault Mode Activate in its text that isn’t another Reflector, and lets you reveal an Assault Mode Activate in your hand to revive any monster in the graveyard that lists Assault Mode Activate in the text and raise its Level by up to 4. Assault Sentinel is a Level 4 that can tribute itself to Special Summon from the deck any monster that lists Assault Mode Activate in the text that isn’t another Sentinel and it prevents you from Special Summoning from the Extra Deck for the rest of the turn except for Synchros, also you can target a monster you control and reveal a Synchro in your Extra Deck to change the targeted monster’s Type and Attribute to that of the revealed Synchro. T.G. Halberd Cannon/Assault Mode is an Assault Mode version of the original Halberd Cannon that can only be summoned off Assault Mode Activate by tributing said Halberd Cannon, can once per turn (Quick Effect) negate the summon of an opponent’s monster and banishes it along with every other Special Summoned monster they control as possible, and it revives T.G. Halberd Cannon from the graveyard, ignoring the summoning conditions, when this card is destroyed. Assault Mode Zero is a Quick-Play Spell that lets you tribute a Synchro to Special Summon its corresponding Assault Mode from your hand (summon is treated as being off of Assault Mode Activate) and during your Main Phase can be banished from the graveyard to set an Assault Mode Activate from your hand or deck and allow it to be activated that turn. Finally, Assault Reboot is a Normal Trap that lets you tribute an Assault Mode to Special Summon a different one from the deck in Defense Position, ignoring the summoning conditions, and Reboot can be banished from the graveyard to shuffle back into your deck any Assault Mode Activates or any cards that list Assault Mode Activate in the text excluding other Assault Reboots.
Go, Go, Super Quantals!
In an Xyz set, it makes sense for an Xyz based archetype to get support, and the chosen archetype was Super Quants. Super Quantum White Layer is a Level 7 that can Special Summon itself from the hand by sending a non-Light Super Quant in your hand or on your field to the graveyard, can send a Super Quant monster from the deck to the graveyard to change this card’s Attribute and level to that monster’s upon White Layer’s Normal or Special Summon, and when White Layer is sent to the graveyard you can get a Super Quantal Fairy Alphan from your deck or graveyard into your hand. Super Quantal Mech Beast Lusterrex is a Rank 7 that requires any 2 Level 7 monsters, cannot attack if it doesn’t have an Xyz Material, can once per turn detach a material to target an Effect Monster and negate its effects (this becomes a Quick Effect if it has White Layer as material), and once per turn allows you to attach a Super Quantum monster from your hand or field to it as material. Neo Super Quantal Mech King Blaster Magna is a Link-3 of any 2+ Effect Monsters (including at least 1 Super Quant), has all three arrows pointing downwards, is immune to being destroyed by your opponent’s card effects if it was Link Summoned, lets you draw a card if a Super Quant Xyz with a different name than the monsters you control is Special Summoned from the Extra Deck to a zone it points to, and if a face-up Xyz Monster(s) this card points to is destroyed by battle or opponent’s card effect you can then Special Summon a Super Quant monster from your deck with the same original Attribute as 1 of the destroyed monster’s. Super Quantal Alphancall Appeal is a Quick-Play Spell that lets you Special Summon a Super Quantal Mech Beast from your Extra Deck and a Super Quant from your hand, deck, or graveyard that is listed on the Xyz Monster with both monster’s effects negated only when a Super Quant monster you control is destroyed in battle. Finally, Super Quantal Union – Magnaformation is a Continuous Trap that gives your Super Quant cards targeting protection from your opponent during your Main Phase 1 and lets you target a Super Quant Xyz you control and attach another face-up monster you control to it as material.

Knightmare Incarnation Idlee is a Level 9 that while on the field gives your Level 9s protection from being destroyed by card effects, can be Special Summoned from the hand during either player’s turn if the total Link Rating on the field is 8 or more, and if Special Summoned while your opponent controls more Link Monsters then you it can send all Link Monsters on the field to the graveyard.

Finally, Memories of Hope lets you draw a card for each Number Xyz monster you control.
This is a really strong set. I can tell they didn’t like the backlash of how poor the Savage Strike Secrets were and made every Secret in this set either a really good card, or a card with good potential. Some great generic cards like the hand traps, Crackdown, and Mystic Mine that various decks can use. Some great World Legacy support to really improve several decks and make Orcust even better than it already was. Some cool legacy support for casual players, and a ton of cards with a good future ahead of them potentially. Also some great imports and a few useful exclusives. A very strong set overall.
