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.

Red Sprinter
 
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.

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 horse.

Snodin Good... GOD, what happened to that horse?? It looks like some mad scientist's after school project gone horribly wrong!

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, obviously)

Whats up everyone? So today we are looking at a card called.......
 
RED SPRINTER
 
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!:)
 
Rate 3.5/5
