Trap Reactor Y FI, which alone should give you a
clue as to three other cards were reviewing this
week...now, here we have a Level 4 Dark attribute
Machine with 800 attack and 1800 defense...let's
take a look at that.
800 attack on a Level 4 monster, especially here, is
horrendous. 1800 defense is almost reasonable,
Anyway, once per turn, when your opponent activates
a Trap, you can destroy the card in question, and
inflict 800 damage to your opponent.
800 damage is respectable, plus you destroy the Trap
in question, both are good qualities. However, the
attack is miserable, and you probably won't attack
with this card...ever. Secondly, the 1800 defense
won't last all that long, and finally, your opponent
probably will have this destroyed before you can use
Advanced: 2/5 IF you play the Deck, and can pull off
Trap Reactor Y Fi
Welcome to DARK Machine Week! Here we are reviewing
some of the new DARK Machine monsters that are new
First up is Trap Reactor, a DARK Machine with 800
ATK and 1800 DEF. The stats are alright. 1800 DEF is
just enough to be a bit of a wall, but 800 ATK is
too little to do much and cannot be used with
Machine Duplication to boot.
It's effect is a little better, once per turn, when
your opponent activates a trap card, you can destroy
it and inflict 800 damage to your opponent.
Basically, that would be great is it said "negate".
As it does not, the effect of the trap card would
still go through. However, it is very useful against
Royal Decree and Royal Oppresion, but Trap Eater is
better for that.
Bottom line is that all of the Reactor Monsters are
only going to be used to Summon Sky Fire, so they
don't belong anywhere else.
N o V a
Todays Card of the Day
is none other than Grieger's Trap Reactor • Y Fi.
Once per turn you can destroy a trap card that your
opponent activates and inflict 800 points of damage
to your opponent. The problem is putting it face up
without having to set it and wait for your opponent
to attack it. 800 attack doesn't really mean it can
hold its own against a lot of todays monsters. Its
1800 defense on the other hand can hold off cards
like Gladiator Beast Laquari if it wasn't special
summoned by another Gladiator Beast, or other cards
like Elemental Hero Stratos. Its also a Crush Card
Virus target which is always a good thing.
Now its obvious that this card is strictly a theme
based card, which means the Reactor monsters can
only fit within burn decks or within a
Grieger(Reactor) deck. Which means they really cant
be staples or splashed into random decks.
Once per turn, when your opponent activates a Trap
Card, you can destroy the Trap card and inflict 800
damage to your opponent.
This card really isn't good in a machine deck let
alone this format but maybe if your local plays a
of burn deck side but there are just better cards
for it like Dust Tornado,Twister etc...
ATK 800/DEF 1800
Card Effect Type(s): Quick
Trap Reactor Y FI ...
I'm not too sure about these cards ... i haven't
seen the official rulings on them yet, so as of now,
I can only comment on what I gather from the text
1st off - It's a Dark Machine ... that's nice on
both counts. And ... that's about where the goodness
stops. It's a level 4, but with only 800 ATK, its a
PITIFUL level 4 ... but wait - does its effect make
up for it?!? ... No, it does not. Had the text read
- " ... NEGATE and destroy ..." u might have had
something here. But since it only reads "destroy",
at this point I can only assume that it is only
useful against continuous trap cards ... which we
discussed last week, so ...
Nope. Sorry, dog. It'll never work. The only thing u
could POSSIBLY make use of is the 800 LP burn ...
that's not ... "nothing" ... and if u are looking
for monsters to use in some kind of lock down/burn
deck, then MAYBE think about what u could do with
this ... but even then - don't think too too long. U
have much better options.
