Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale. 1 is awful. 3 is average. 5 is excellent.
Back to looking at Rokket cards once again with the new Rokket Revolt Structure out, so we’ll start by looking at one of the newest Rokket monsters, Siverrokket Dragon.
Siverrokket is a Level 4 DARK Dragon with 1900 ATK and 100 DEF. Great ATK, bad DEF, good type, and good attribute. Silverrokket has your standard Rokket stuff where if a Link Monster targets it with a card effect, then as a Quick Effect you can destroy said Rokket and get a special effect, and with Silverrokket Dragon you can look in your opponent’s Extra Deck and banish a card of your choice in it. Great way to eliminate any of their one-ofs in the Extra Deck. Heavymetalfoes Electrumite, Sky Striker Ace – Kagari, El Shaddoll Construct, Daigusto Emeral, all of those and more are some good limited Extra Deck monsters you could hit, but you could probably hit other things people play only one copy of, despite not being limited, like Borreload Dragon, Borrelsword Dragon, Knightmare Unicorn, Knightmare Phoenix/Cerberus (if your opponent chooses to not play 2 of them), etc. It eliminates a potential threat before it can even hit the board, meaning your opponent would have to go through the effort of getting it back in the Extra Deck and then summoning it properly. Silverrokket Dragon also does that other Rokket thing where at the End Phase of the turn it was destroyed, you can summon a Rokket with a different name from the deck and I’m sure we all know the good options out there already, and of course this Structure Deck added a few more. Both effects are hard once per turns, which is on every Rokket basically and it doesn’t make this one any worse. Silverrokket Dragon is a nice little addition to the Rokket arsenal, one I wouldn’t fault anybody for playing considering most decks run an Extra Deck.
Advanced Rating: 4/5
Art: 4/5 A card called “Silverrokket Dragon” is a silver dragon, what a shock.
Are you part of Team Rokket? Maybe you will be after this week. Opening things off is Silverrokket Dragon. Dark, Level 4, Dragon, with 1900 attack and 100 defense. Naturally, we should be fond of any Level 4 Monster with 1900 attack, even if it’s paired with such a miserable defense. First here is a Quick effect, that is activated specifically when a Link Monster effect targets this (face-up) card.
By destroying this card you can look through your opponent’s Extra Deck and remove one card from it from play. It can be a big advantage to look through your opponent’s Extra Deck, especially if you’re not sure what is in there. Ridding them of a card too via the removal is another really nice aspect of this effect. Naturally, this IS dependent on your opponent targeting it, but if you get the chance, it’s a big asset for you.
Next, if this card in the Graveyard, so long as it was the turn it was destroyed by Battle or Card Effect, you get to Special Summon a theme Monster from your Deck, present company excluded, of course. It may seem a bit costly initially to destroy this card just for an Extra Deck removal, but it will replace itself (so long as it remains in the Graveyard) so I’m a big fan of both effects here. (Each of which is once per turn).
Art: 3.5/5 It’s a silver Dragon alright. The background is cool, the light and dark blues contrast relatively well together. Not much Rokket feel though aside from maybe the top of the head there.
