Hello Pojo Fans,

Peaceful Planet Calarium is your Field Spell for the Mannadium archetype.

Searchable within the archetype by stuff like Abscission as well as the generic Terraforming. A searcher Field Spell like all are now in the game, searching a Mannadium monster or a Visas from the Deck. Small ATK boost for each Tuner you have in the grave and on the field isn’t going to help your LIGHT monsters very much.

If you lose one of your small Tuner monsters via battle or card effect you can Special Summon it using PPC once per turn. Good replacement value during your opponent’s turn, but even more handy with Riumheart popping a Mannadium to Special Summon himself. With this on the field, you will get your Riumheart on the field alongside two copies of Meek, one Level 4, one Level 2. As if planned by the archetype, this is what you need for the archetype’s star Synchro Monster: Mannadium Prime-Heart. You can only activate one copy of Calarium per turn, a good restriction as there are cards that allow you to get to other copies of your Field Spell and that wouldn’t end well with this card’s ability to Special Summon a Tuner off its destruction. Without this restriction you could end up with a field with several Tuners in a hurry within the Mannadium archetype. Theoretically, you could run Red Supernova Dragon within the Mannadium archetype, but I think it will do just fine without it.

These Planets really didn’t bring anything new to the table since we initially looked at Reichphobia, hence why there weren’t reviews for Perlereino or Wraitsoth, but this does more for Mannadium to where it felt worthy of a review, so here’s Peaceful Planet Calarium.

Calarium is a Field Spell that on activation searches for any Mannadium monster or a Visas Starfrost, which is standard and very good, not really revolutionary (especially in this lore). Your LIGHT monsters gain 100 ATK for each Tuner you control and in your graveyard, which can make it awkward with 1500 ATK/2100 DEF monsters if you want to Special Summon the Tuners, but it isn’t like this does anything to ruin the archetype really. The main effect is if a face-up Tuner(s) you control is destroyed by battle or card effect, you can target one of those Tuners and Special Summon it. Being able to revive the Mannadium Tuners you destroy with your effects is great, since it helps a lot more with Synchro climbing to be able to keep the Tuner you initially destroy to float. Mainly it helps you get into the Level 8 or 10 Synchros with the greatest of ease since you got a Level 2 Tuner back to use as material or to destroy again to float. Hard once per turn on that final effect and you can only activate 1 of these a turn. With all that said, Calarium does help Mannadium get to their important combo pieces and helps keep your Tuners on field after you destroy them with your effects. Certainly don’t go without this and the search card the archetype has for it.

Advanced Rating: 4.5/5

Another planet is added to the Visas lore with Peaceful Planet Calarium, the designated Field Spell of the Mannadium archetype. Like the other Visas Field Spells, you can only activate one per turn, and upon activation, you can search any Mannadium monster or Visas Starfrost. With how flexible the combos can be, you’ll usually be searching Mannadium Meek, Visas Starfrost (assuming you don’t use a Scareclaw line), or Mannadium Riumheart. While on the field, Calarium boosts the attack of LIGHT monsters by 100 for each Tuner on your field and in your Graveyard. This effect is normally just fine, but bizarrely, it will bring Mannadium Riumheart’s stats outside of the 1500/2100 statline that the Mannadium Tuners need to Special Summon themselves. If you play correctly, it’s not a huge deal, though it can be annoying when you’re doing follow up plays and can’t summon your Mannadium balls due to Riumheart’s stats being incorrect, forcing you to rely on Scareclaw Reichheart or Visas Starfrost. Calarium’s final effect is a hard once per turn, letting you Special Summon a Tuner that was destroyed by battle or card effect. This is obviously an excellent extending effect for Mannadium, since you can bring back Mannadium Tuners that were likely destroyed by Riumheart or Visas Starfrost, helping you set up big combo plays and almost guaranteeing the summon of Baronne de Fleur or Bystial Dis Pater. You’ll probably still want to run three Calarium just for the searching effect, and the extending is great as well; just watch out for the potentially fatal attack boost on Riumheart.

Art: 3.5/5 Doesn’t look very peaceful right now to me!
