Constellar Star Chart is an interesting Magic card, and one I think I'd be playing in my Constellar Deck. This is a Continuous Magic card that lets you Draw 1 card, once per turn, when you Special Summon an XYZ Constellar Monster. I suppose it's balanced in a way you can only do this once per turn, at least reaping the benefit of the Draw. This is not applicable during the Damage Step, however. So if you play this and gain the effect even once, say just the turn you activate it, the card pays for itself, thus being a 1-for-1, but you could easily enough turn it into advantage.

Ratings: (For Constellar)

Traditional 2/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

Constellar monsters have entered the Yu-Gi-Oh realm with the advent of Hidden Arsenal #7. Unfortunately, they tend to have a problem with keeping up with all of the plusses that the top tier decks generate. Constellar Star Chart is one of the few cards that can compensate for this deficiency. Constellar builds are all about special summoning their powerful Xyz monsters, so more times than not, it is at least a one for one.
Constellar decks have some pretty cool tricks to increase Star Chart’s draw power. First, play Constellar Star Chart. Then Xyz summon Constellar Pleiades (draw a card). Then bounce Star Chart back to the hand with Pleiades or Gravelstorm and reply it. Finally, overlay Pleiades with Constellar Ptolemy M7 to draw a second card. You can also make use of Constellar Star Chart on your opponent’s turn by playing the trap card, Xyz Reborn.
The only plusses that I see coming from a Constellar deck are with this card, Xyz monster effects, and Constellar Star Cradle (gets two Constellar monsters from the graveyard). With the Constellar deck’s ability to Xyz monsters at a fast clip, I would recommend playing Star Chart. If nothing else, it forces your opponent to expend resources on it. Constellar decks are not considered to be top tier so my ratings will reflect Star Chart’s limited playability and impact on the game.
Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5


Today we are looking at: Constellar Star Chart

“Once per turn, when a "Constellar" Xyz Monster(s) is Special Summoned to your side of the field (except during the Damage Step): You can draw 1 card.”

This card is pretty much the number one reason that Constellar’s are relevant. The power to draw one extra card every turn, if you special summon a Constellar XYZ monster, is pretty cool. (It happens a lot in Constellar decks.) Not quite to the level of ye old banned friend cards, but it still packs a punch. I like it at a one/two of in Constellar’s.

Advanced: 3/5
Traditional: 1/5


Today's Card of the Day Review is Constellar Star Chart, a Secret Rare from the Hidden Arsenal 7 booster set.

"Once per turn, when a "Constellar" Xyz Monster(s) is Special Summoned to your side of the field (except during the Damage Step): You can draw 1 card.

It is a decent amount of support for Constellars, awarding the player with extra draws whenever he/she Special Summons an Constellar Xyz Monster.

Note the wording on the card stating that you can draw whenever you Special Summon, not Xyz Summon, an Constellar Xyz Monster. By having it worded this way, you can abuse it by Xyz Summoning an Constellar Xyz Monster, like Pleiades, and draw a card and then later on in the game, activate the Trap Card Xyz Reborn to bring it back from the Graveyard and draw another card.

Speaking of Constellar Pleiades, there is a nifty trick using that card and Star Chart. First, Xyz Summon Pleiades and draw a card. Afterwards, use its effect to bounce Star Chart back to your hand and then activate Star Chart again. Then use Pleiades to Xyz Change into Ptolemy M7. With this, you can draw another card off of the same Star Chart so you got 2 cards out of the deal.

Lastly, this card effect stacks so if you got 2 Star Charts out, each Constellar Xyz Summon will net you a Pot of Greed. That's pretty cool.

Overall, this is a good range of steady draw power for Constellars and one of the reasons to actually want to play this deck. It's pretty cheap right now so if you want to give this deck a test run, now is the best time to pick up your copies of this card.

Traditional Format: 2/5 (While it does help in that format, there is quicker way to speed through the deck. Still, the option is there.)
Advanced Format: 3/5 (Even though this card is much welcome support, the deck is still a bit slow. Nonetheless, this is indeed a good card and I'm sure anyone who is playing the deck is not regretting having access to it.)

Welcome to our last Hidden Arsenal card of this week! Today we will be looking at a very interesting Constellar card that allows them to turn their xyz summoning into strong pluses, and thus keep up with the tempo of the fast paced game we currently have. Lets take a look at Constellar Star Chart. 
Constellar Star Chart
Continuous Spell Card
Once per turn, when a "Constellar" Xyz Monster(s) is Special Summoned to your side of the field (except during the Damage Step): You can draw 1 card.
What do Constellar monsters do best? Search, Summon many monsters, and then xyz summon into many different ranks. However, the summoning and xyz aspects of the deck take up a lot of resources when making your plays. Star Chart helps to alleviate and help this issue.
Once per turn, when you summon a constellar xyz monster, you can draw a card. While it doesn't seem like a lot, over time this can generate a large amount of advantage. It also helps to note that you get the draw even if the summon isn't an xyz summon (XYZ Reborn comes to mind here). Many of the constellar xyz monsters are strong picks to go into regardless (M7, Peladies, Omega [once released]), so getting those extra draws will help go into more plays,or at least let you draw into your defenses. As such, this allows you to push a bit more than you normally would as you gain advantage (or break even in terms of plusing).
You can also use it as a way to bluff out any set MST your opponent might have set. Many constellar decks are teching Fire Formation Tenki in their deck so search out Kaust; some even go the extra mile and use Fire Fist Bear in their decks. Playing Star Chart might make your opponent go after it with their MST to avoid you drawing extra cards, and thus allow Tenki to go through easily.
Advanced: 3.25
Easily a staple in Constellar decks. It isn't necessarily the main card or the game winner in the deck, but it does help.
Traditional: 1.5
I could see Constellars doing something here. 
Art: 2.5
Victory shot! Interesting art, though the secret rare does make it hard to see.
