From the first anime to the most recent one with the regular card game, we have Link into the VRAINS!
Link into the VRAINS! is a Normal Spell that lets you Special Summon a monster from your hand with its effects negated, then immediately after that effect resolves, you Link Summon a Link Monster using monsters you control as material, including the monster you summoned. The Link Summon cannot be negated and your opponent cannot activate cards or effects when a monster is Link Summoned this way. It’s nice for a guaranteed Link Summon if your Deck really needs a certain Link to get things going. It works in something like Magical Muskets to make their Link-1 for example so you can get his effect off and get all your Magical Musket cards. Second effect triggers if a Link Monster(s) you control is destroyed by battle or card effect while this is in your graveyard, letting you banish this card from the graveyard to add a monster from your graveyard to your hand with the same Type as 1 of the destroyed monsters, giving some decent recovery at least. Hard once per turn on each effect, symbolic of this being a VRAINS-era card basically. It’s overall pretty decent for a guaranteed Link Summon and insurance if one of your Link Monsters is destroyed. It won’t be a staple in every Link Deck, but any Deck wanting their Link Monster summoned should consider this.
Advanced Rating: 3.5/5
Art: 5/5 So this is a reference to logging into the LINK VRAINS in the anime with the name, both the OCG and TCG names, being what was said when logged in. Yusaku is of course in the background, being the main character of the VRAINS anime.
