Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Ancient Gear Wyvern gives Ancient Gears another solid attacker beside Ancient Gear Knight, as well as a little more.
 
Regardless of summon, Wyvern will search any Ancient Gear card beside itself. The deck needed another way of getting more resources to the players hand, so this is a good thing. Strong ATK, the deck lacked good support from Level 4 and below. Now with more Level 4's to run, Rank Summons of 4 are possible. You are forced to set cards before activating this effect, otherwise you are locked out until next turn. Not much of a drawback. Wyvern locks down monster effects instead of spell/trap, putting a new spin on the Ancient Gear assault. Flip effects locked down, destruction effects on the field dealt with, burn effects like Marshmallon? Wyvern will save you the 1000LP.
 
Depending on what this card searches you can combo with it to get more. Ancient Gear Box off of Wyvern will get you another low ATK Machine, setting up Machine Duplication. CoTD during the End Phase bypasses any of the drawbacks of Wyvern.
 
It may not lock down spell/traps during an attack, and that can backfire on you, but the archetype needed a monster like Ancient Gear Wyvern.

A good searcher is almost officially necessary for every deck. Ancient Gear Wyvern is a Level 4 Earth Machine-type monster with 1700 Atk and 1200 Def. It's good enough for a Level 4 and better than average for a searcher. Wyvern gets its ability to search any Ancient Gear card from the deck to the hand after it is Normal or Special Summoned. There is a minor drawback in that you cannot set cards for the rest of the turn, but activating is better so do that instead. Or you can Special Summon Ancient Gear Wyvern during your opponent's turn, gain the effect, and Set cards the next turn. The Ancient Gear effect on Wyvern blocks activated monster effects when it attacks. The search effect is once per turn and completely free. The attack effect doesn't stop Spells or Traps, but that is still good as well. Ancient Gear Wyvern is only good in its own deck. Since that deck needs good searchers, Wyvern will score well. Too bad it wasn't named Ancient Gear Gadget Wyvern, but yeah, that might be too much. 
 
Score: 4/5

Ancient Gear Wyvern
 
Todays card is Ancient Gear Wyvern, an angry looking clockwork monster at level 4 with 1700 attack and 1200 defense. This level 4 earth machine is one of 2 pieces of support that Ancient Gears sorely needed.
 
Wyvern's first effect triggers whenever it's normal or special summoned once per turn. And when it does, you can add any Ancient Gear card, except itself, to your hand from your deck. However you can't set any cards for the rest of the turn. Its second effect goes off whenever it attacks and it stops your opponent from activating any monster effects until the end of the damage step.
 
Wyvern is versatile and allows the deck to move faster than it could before, all with a nice 1700 body aswell. Preventing monster effects in battle is handy too, allowing it to stop honest and flip effect monsters to name two.
 
Advanced 3/5 It's great support for the archetype, but not much use elsewhere.
