Pojo's Yu-Gi-Oh! Card of the Day
Daily Since 2002!
If you control no monsters, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand). When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can add 1 "Speedroid" monster from your Deck to your hand, except "Speedroid Terrortop". You can only use this effect of "Speedroid Terrortop" once per turn.
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 is Horrible.
3 is Average.
5 is the highest rating.

Back to the main COTD
For good reason, Terrortop made waves upon its
release. It has the perfect storm effect. Special
summon with no restriction and gives you a plus.
Regardless of what it could search for, what combos
were available, and what its stats were, Terrortop
was destined to succeed. List other cards that can
do that, and you won’t be counting long. And the
speedroid engine as a result is very good, very
fast, and produces monsters like Clear Wing and
Crystal Wing that are top Synchro options in today’s
Speaking of synchros, the best part about Terrortop
is that he has extra deck options. And it’s always
noteworthy when a card is possessed by a key
character in the current anime. Future speedroid
support should be expected, which makes Top’s future
potential off the charts. This monster is unique in
what it can do, and it should be a regular sight for
several years until it’s finally abused beyond the
point of acceptance. I expect this card to one day
be on the restricted list, but not any time soon.
Like the infamous Stratos, enough support leads to
the banning of can trips.
Future Potential: 4.5/5
For Friday we have something completely
different. It's also the first of July yay!
Speedroid Terrortop is a Level 3 Wind Machine-type
monster with 1200 Atk and 600 Def. Though Speedroids
were intended for Synchro plays, this has become
part of a two card combo for Level 3 XYZ monsters.
In either case, the only stats that matter are that
it is a Speedroid and that it is Wind.
This Little Engine that Could pops in decks that
want easy consistency turn one, usually Burning
Abyss. Without using any Burning Abyss effects or a
Normal Summon, you could summon this and go straight
to Dante. Speedroid Terrortop can activate its own
effect to Special Summon itself while you control no
monsters and then trigger its other effect to add
any Speedroid from your Deck to your Hand except
Terrortop and only once per turn. So search
Taketomborg for easy Rank 3 plays in any deck.
Taketomborg just happens to Special Summon itself
straight to the field while you control a Wind
monster. Speedroid Terrortop will be one of those
engines that forum people say "does the Speedroid
engine work for x deck?" and with good reason. Keep
copies around even if you don't run it.
Score: 4/5 Combo cards aren't perfect on their own.
Art: 4/5 Bug dice things are cool.
