Speedroid Dominobutterfly is a Level 2 Wind Machine-type Pendulum Tuner Monster with 100 Atk and 300 Def and Scales of 8. As a Scale Dominobutterfly is nice and high but it restricts from Pendulum Summoning anything that isn't Wind. It also allows you to discard a Wind monster to gain a Banished Wind monster back to your hand once per turn. On the field, just having a Pendulum Tuner Monster can lead to some interesting combos. However, the Synchro potential is limited to just Wind Dragon or Wind Machine Synchro Monsters. On top of that, Speedroid Dominobutterfly banishes itself if it was Special Summoned from the Extra Deck and used as Synchro Material. All the restrictions hurt, but the future potential is still high. You can use another Speedroid Dominobutterfly to get the banished copy to your hand. I even like that this can summon Stardust Dragon. A nice happy Friday butterfly.

We end Dimensional Guardians week off with the first Pendulum monster for the Speedroid archetype in the TCG (the other one will be a Manga promo at a future date, I believe) and that is Speedroid Dominobutterfly.
 
Dominobutterfly is a Scale 8, which is normally the highest scale you get without a restriction; however, Dominobutterfly decided to have a restriction anyways. You cannot Pendulum Summon monsters except for WIND monster and this effect cannot be negated. Hey Majespecters, if you wanted another High Scale, here you go! To be honest, you'll more than likely use this in Speedroids than Majespecters. Once per turn, this is a hard once per turn, you can discard a WIND monster to target a banished WIND monster and add it to your hand. If your 1 of Terrortop somehow got banished, this is a nice way to get it back. I just don't know how often Terrortop will get banished
 
Before I get into the monster effect, I'll go ahead and mention that this guy is a Tuner, and all Pendulum Tuners have restrictions. Just look at Luster Pendulum, Harmonizing Magician, Noble Dragon Magician, etc. This guy only has restrictions as monster effects. You can only Synchro Summon a WIND Dragon or Machine using this guy. You are mostly playing WIND Dragons and Machines in your Extra Deck if you are playing Speedroids, so this isn't too much of a downside, the other restriction; however, if this guy was Special Summoned from the Extra Deck and used as Synchro Material, banish it. Again, all Pendulum Tuners have restrictions because Konami doesn't like Pendulum Monsters to keep coming back and be used as Synchro Material. I get that.
 
This card isn't too great for Speedroids, and if you aren't playing either of the Speedroid Pendulums when they both come out, I understand why.
 
Advanced Rating: 2/5
