Back to the main COTD
Jector is better than some of the other Jinzo
support we've been getting (like Amplier and Psychic
Shockwave). He presents an easy opportunity to
summon Jinzo, which is good for consistency.
But Jinzo itself is not really strong anymore
though, and aside from the handful of decks which
can get hurt badly by trap negation, Jinzo is really
easy to get around nowadays.
Jector is a step in the right direction but there's
still not enough support to make Jinzo viable.
Jinzo-Jector. This is one of those cards
I'm not entirely sure what to make about. It's
not a bad card, but in terms of relevance, it's
about as relevant as Jinzo itself, so what do you
do? First off this card becomes Jinzo while on
the Field or in the Graveyard. The 800 attack
on a Level 4 isn't good but the 2000 defense is good
if it stays on the Field that long. You can
tribute this card to add a Jinzo card from your Deck
to your Hand, save itself, and then reveal all Magic
and Trap cards your opponent has on the Field.
That's a good effect definitely. IF you
revealed any Traps, you can Special Summon a Jinzo
Monster per Trap revealed from your Hand, so you're
guaranteed at least one, likely Jinzo himself, from
your Hand via this own effect. You can only
use said effect once a turn. You don't see
much Jinzo these days, but even in a Deck you were
playing him, I'm not sure you'd find space for this
Hello Pojo Fans,
It has been a long time since Jinzo has been
relevant in the game, but with Jinzo – Jector, Jinzo
has some new, useful support. Special Summonable by
Mystic Tomato, compatible with Creeping Darkness,
Allure of Darkness, Dark Eruption, and Jinzo –
Returner, Jinzo – Jector can even defend against
most level 4 monsters with its strong DEF.
Jinzo couldn't be added to your hand in the TCG by
anything up to this point. With Witch of The Black
Forest banned, Jinzo – Jector can search for any “Jinzo”
except itself upon being tributed. Searchable effect
for a bigger monster, good, then you get to see your
opponents set spell/traps and if there are any traps
you can Special Summon a number of “Jinzo” monsters
from your hand up to the number of traps your
opponent has set. Multiple Special Summon
possibilities alongside a searching effect and
revealing your opponents set backrows? All good.
While you likely aren't going to have more than one
of the original Jinzo in your hand when you tribute
this card, this card could free up a cluttered hand.
Add a Jinzo, then Special Summon it upon seeing all
your opponents backrows. The possibility to swarm is
there, and with the original on the field any trap
will be useless once the original Jinzo hits the
field. This card should always be able to Special
Summon whichever “Jinzo” it searches out. You are
less likely to summon this monster to tribute it if
your opponent has no backrows unless you are in dire
need of a bigger monster than this one.
It won't see time in any of the top decks, but
should be run in 3's in a Jinzo-themed deck. Jinzo –
Jector gives people more of a reason to play Jinzo
in a deck that would normally support him, but had
no room for him because he couldn't be searched or
Until Next Time
