Really short today, as there's not much to discuss here.  Tuning, which for some reason shows a lady playing a Harp, possibly Spirit of the Harp?  Add a Synchron Tuner monster from your Deck to your Hand, then send the top card from yoru Deck to the Graveyard.
 
It's a very simple one for two, technically, this card, plus the mill, for the Synchron Tuner.  Of course, it adds speed, and likely advantage, for said Synchro, etc.
 
Ratings:
 
Traditional:  2/5 
Advanced:     3/5 
Art:  2.5/5

Tuning ...
 
U know I like simplicity. So … hmmm … a normal spell card that thins your deck twice over and makes a fast and powerful deck even faster? … Cha! How good do u THINK this card is?!?
(in case u are unable to recognize sarcasm when I throw it, Tuning is VERY good)
 
These days milling cards off the top is more an extra added effect than a cost, and can be combined with various other tricks that I’m not even gonna begin to get into. And all for the luxury of getting any Synchro tuner from your deck that u want.
 
Yeah. Easy.
 
Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 4.5/5

Today's card is Tuning! You didn't know that, did you? I bet you also didn't know that it searches for Synchron Tuners (which means no Explorer Synchron, which means no fun allowed). Should you use it, though?

Probably not.

Most Quickdraw decks will use two Quickdraw Synchrons. If two Quickdraws isn't enough for you, you use one Tuning. If you STILL need more Quickdraws, there's something wrong with you. But if you're using Quickdraw Synchron and also Junk Synchron, meaning you're thinking about your Volcanic Quickdraw deck right now, then you should most definitely be using one or two Tunings.

That's really it. You'd want to think this card is crazy flexible and fast, but it's not. Also, notice how I haven't said anything about the one-card mill. That's probably because it's just a one-card mill, and it will very rarely knock off something useful. I'm looking at you, idiot who thought Hidden Armory/Naturia Butterfly would be good in Lightsworn. One-card milling might as well not be there. It's just a little bonus for Volcanic Quickdraw.

4/5 . . . in Volcanic Quickdraw, which is its only home other than crazy Junk/Debris.
Art: Spirit of the Harp be uppin' her game.
Fun Fact: You know who else plays a harp? Golden Sun. You should get Golden Sun: Dark Dawn.
Tomorrow: Another one of those guys with crotch armor.

Hey Pojo, Pheano here with another Card Of The Day For you.
 
Today we will be taking a look at a highly anticipated Ultra Rare from Starstrike Blast, Tuning. Tuning is a Normal Spell that lets you Add 1 "Synchron" Tuner monster from your Deck to your hand. Then send the top card of your Deck to the Graveyard.
 
Let me just start by saying that this is a really great card, if Charge Of The Light Brigade and Reinforcement Of The Army has taught us anything it is that searching and milling is good. You get to search for of the key cards of your deck like Quickdraw Synchron in a Plant Synchro deck and then get to send one card from the top of your deck to the Graveyard (otherwise known as milling). One of the great things about this card is that you can gain so much free advantage of the milling part of its effect. There are so many cards that you can send for the potential “plus”, for example; Dandylion, Glow-Up Blub, Spore, or a fifth Monster for a Pot Of Avarice. In a deck that already loves to mill cards from their own deck for “pluses” and the deck’s only real problem being its occasional bad hand a card that mills and adds consistency is a welcome addition to the team.
 
One other notable mention for this card is that it can be used in a Dark Synchro decks since you can load your grave with Dark Monsters for your Dark Armed Dragon and targets for you to bring back with the Junk Synchron that you will be searching.
 
In the Traditional Format this card will not see much play seeing as not Traditional Format decks have little to do with Synchron Monsters and are more worried about FTK combos.
 
Bottom line:
This card is quality support for the ever-popular Plant decks.
Advanced: 3/5
Traditional: 1/5
 
Hit me up on Pojo or Youtube (pheanoblack) if you have any comments or questions, I’m always open to constructive criticism.

Tuning, Konami’s sick way of improving the quickdraw deck. First of all, it is a spell which gives it some advantages. Next, add a synchron monster to your hand. Quickdraw *cough* *cough*. Having that ability is like getting a free summon of drill warrior or nitro warrior, etc. Then after that, you mill one card from the top of your deck. That makes this card even better. If you mill dandy, that sets up for another combo. I can’t see the downside of this card.

Traditional: 4.0
Advanced: 4.5


The
Crowing

One of the money cards from starstrike blast. Tuning is a normal spell card. You send a card from the top of your deck to the grave and add a synchron monster from your deck to your hand.

So, its ROTA for Synchrons, not bad. Chances are you are searching either Junk or Quickdraw Synchron, since all the rest are horrible.

Relatively simple card, but great effect nontheless.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-4/5 (Synchron Decks only)
Art- Not a very subtle pun.
