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 little guy.

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 summoned easily.
Until Next Time
