Hello Pojo Fans,

Underclock Taker is a small Link 2 with an interesting effect.

Two effect monsters any deck can make. While it isn’t the best Link 2 out there, it can be good in a pinch. Get a monster into a zone Taker points to and you can drop the ATK of an opponents monster by the ATK of your monster. With the amount of Special Summoning available in the game you could easily drop your opponents boss monster to 0 with the monster you get into the zone Taker points to. Once that effect goes through, Taker can take down the monster and your other monster is free to do whatever you want. You could even go into other summons after using that effect. The ATK loss last until the end of the turn, so you have to get it in that turn or you lose your chance.

A card that is worth experimenting with. It can be good in a pinch and everyone is capable of using it.



Until Next Time



Cards like these are always why I recommend players to go through their common cards, cause you never know what hidden gems you have, and here is a hidden gem in Underclock Taker.

Underclock Taker is a Dark Cyberse Link-2 with 1000 ATK and arrows pointing Left and Bottom. ATK is terrible, attribute is good, type is still being pushed as long as Vrains is going on, and arrows are good for whichever Monster Zone you wish to put this in as long as it isn’t the far left Main Monster Zone. The requirements are 2 Effect Monsters, so pretty generic of a Link Monster. Once per turn, you can target a face-up monster this card points to and a face-up monster your opponent controls, the opponent’s monster loses ATK equal to the ATK of the monster this card points to. Solid effect for getting over a monster, as long as the monster this card points to has more than half of an opponent’s big monster ATK, then this can help you kill the opposing monster. This is also good for climbing the Link Ladder if you do not rely on Tokens to Link Summon. If you use Tokens to Link-Up, keep your Proxy Dragon, but if you still use your main deck monsters to get to smaller Link Monsters to use to Link into bigger Links, Underclock Taker is far superior thanks to the arrows and effect. Very immune to powercreep though.

Advanced Rating: 3.5/5


Underclock Taker…Link 2, only 1000 attack, with an arrow pointing to the immediate left, and directly below, and Linked with two effect Monsters.  Very simple to Link Summon, this is a fun little card.  Not game breaking, but could be useful in a tight spot for sure.  In short, you choose a Monster this card points to, and a Monster your opponent controls..their Monster loses attack equal to the attack of the Monster you chose linked to this card, for the duration of the turn.  Go big or go home, seems obvious here, as you could potentially be linked to something quite strong and easily doing 2000 or more Damage via this effect.  Unless you use this card probably immediately after for something, it’s likely to be destroyed, only having 1000 attack, but this thing wasn’t meant to attack.
