Back to the main COTD
This card isn't as exciting as the rest of the
week. Probably should have started the week
with it, but after posting to this point, I wasn't
shuffling the rest, and it wasn't going to be the
Friday card, so here we are. Red Sprinter is
very simple. A Fiend, appropriately Fire,
given the artwork, with 1700 attack and 1200
defense, with simple effectiveness. When
Normal or Special Summoned, you're able to Special
Summon a Level 3 or lower Tuner, from the Hand or
Graveyard, provided it's also a Fiend.
Obviously we'd prefer the Fiend part to be dropped,
but it fits given it matches type. It can
work, and obviously, it can't, but if you have
enough Tuners fitting the criteria, I don't see why
not playing this.
Lets you bring out any generic LV5, LV6 or LV7
Synchro by just spending 1 card. The downside:
It only works truly works with Fiend-based decks
(excluding Burning Abyss and Dark World). Good
for low tier play, though.
Red Sprinter is a lesser-form of Tour Guide.
Limiting its reach to a Level 3 Fined Tuner narrows
the amount of logical monsters a player would play
in a deck that would run monsters like Tour Guide.
Ability to Special Summon a monster when Normal or
Special Summoned is great, but it only works if you
don't have a monster on the field, which you don't
usually like. It also doesn't pull from the deck, so
no deck thinning there, you will have to have the
monster you want either in your hand or graveyard.
There are really only two targets for this card
outside a Fabled deck.
In a Fabled deck I could see this getting some play,
but outside of that I'm not seeing it. Tour Guide is
far superior to this card. Even at one, Tour Guide
outclasses this card.
Until Next Time
Evil Rapidash appears! Red
Sprinter is a minor combo piece for the new
Resonators from the new set. It is a Level 4 Fire
Fiend-type monster with 1700 Atk and 1200 Def. 1700
Atk is just barely a beater for Level 4. It's better
than nothing and it will beat a bunch of the usual
Normal Summon combo starters out there. Fire isn't
here to provide different support. It's here because
the tuners are all different Attributes. Hopefully,
it makes the deck difficult to counter.
The effect is very simple and
you can only use it once per turn. When Normal or
Special Summoned, Special Summon a Level 3 or lower
Fiend-type tuner monster from your Hand or
Graveyard. So realistically, you don't want to
summon this in the first turn the way you would want
to summon Tour Guide from the Underworld. However,
in the mid to late game, there should be a bunch of
tuners for you to use and Synchro Summon right there
then and there. I wish there were a Synchro tuner
monster that fit the criteria, but so far nothing.
Score: 3/5 It doesn't work in
many decks, but it does provide advantage.
Art: 4/5 It's a pretty red
Good... GOD, what happened to that horse?? It looks
like some mad scientist's after school project gone
Looks aside, this is a good support cards for
Fiends- as though they really needed the support?
Still, for being able to Special Summon a Fiend
Tuner from either your hand or Graveyard, you're
looking at a fast Level 7 Synchro summoning, and
that's nothing to sneeze at.
Final Score: 4/5 (Fiend/Synchro decks only,
Whats up everyone? So today we are looking at a
This cool looking monster has the effect to summon
another lv 3 or lower fiend type tuner monster from
your hand or graveyard.
Its really a good, quick way to make a synchro
monster for just one card if the tuner monster was
in your graveyard already. Decent card and decent
effect. Nothing more to say other than a good card
to use for a synchro deck. Lets Rev It Up!:)
