Back to the main COTD
What Formula Synchron started,
Crystron Quandax continued. However, unlike Formula,
Quandax can use his first effect during either the
main phase or battle phase. Does this add additional
value? Well, in a sense. While it’s quite easy to
use quick-play synchro summoning effects during the
end of the main phase, thus effectively leading into
a big monster as the opponent enters battle, there’s
something to be said for using the effect after an
opponent declares an attack, thus allowing for
potential wasted attacks.
It also shouldn’t go without
saying that there still aren’t that many synchro
tuners. At the moment, there’s only twelve, and only
two that are level 4. And the other, Phonon Pulse
Dragon, has big restrictions in his effect. A number
of big synchro monsters, namely Phoenix and Quasar,
need other synchro monsters to summon, so it’s nice
to see more options afforded to us for those.
Quandax fills a hole. And he’s a key cog in Crystron
that probably won’t be replaced, as he goes into
both Phoenix and Gliongandr. And let’s not forget
his harmony with yesterday’s card of the day,
Bahrastos. Alongside Phoenix, Crystron decks have a
lot of great spell and trap removal, and it wouldn’t
be nearly as easy without Quandax. This is a solid
Future Potential: 4/5
Hello Pojo Fans,
Crystrons take over CoTD for the rest of the week,
starting with Crystron Quandax.
Level 4 Synchro monsters aren't the greatest. If you
Synchro Summon this monster, you will get a Crystron
monster back once it is destroyed (minus any Synchro
Monsters). The ability to use Quandax as a material
for another Synchro Summon, and initiate that effect
whenever on your opponents turn is much like Yang
Zings ability to do the same. Quandax is more useful
in the sense that it facilitates further Synchro
Summons of better monsters within the archetype.
If running Crystrons, you'll need to make this
monster to get to your better Synchros.
Until Next Time
As we get into the Crystron cards of the week, we
start with Crystron Quandrax. Not the biggest
or strongest Synchro Monster, at Level 4, with 1800
attack and 2000 defense, this Machine is also a
Tuner, and is Synchro Summoned with a Tuner and one
or more non-Tuner Monsters. Despite not being
the strongest, this card is an integral part of the
Crystron Deck, namely to bring out Phoenix.
This card has a Quick effect, that allows you to
bring out another Synchro Monster, using material
that include this card also, during your opponent's
Main OR Battle Phase. Again, making summoning
Phoenix that much easier. If this card is
destroyed by Battle or Effect, you can Special
Summon (via target) a Cryston non-Synchro monster
from your Graveyard. The second effect is
standard par for the course for Crystron Monsters
pretty much, and still a welcome replacement.
But in this case, you really shouldn't get to that
effect anyway, having all ready used the first
Rating: 4.25/5 Again, the weakness of
the attack isn't a problem. He's a combo
piece, and he really helps get Phoenix to the Field.
