In Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, Yuma uses the Spellcaster-type monsters Gagaga Magician and Gagaga Girl to Xyz Summon easily. He also uses Wonder Wand and (will use) Bound Wand, 2 Equip Spell Cards that work great with Spellcasters. Wonder Wand was released in Generation Force, but Bound Wand is an all-new card from Galactic Overlord! Here’s some of the cool things that you can do with Bound Wand to increase the power of your Spellcaster Deck.
Equip only to a Spellcaster-Type monster that has a Level. It gains ATK equal to its Level x 100. If the equipped monster is destroyed by your opponent’s card (either by battle or by card effect) and sent to the Graveyard, and this card is sent to the Graveyard as a result: You can Special Summon that monster from the Graveyard.
Bound Wand has two effects, one that works on the field, and one that works when the equipped monster is destroyed. Bound Wand will increase the equipped monster’s ATK by 100 points multiplied by its Level. This means that the bigger your monster is, the more they benefit from the Wand. Gagaga Magician, one of Yuma’s ace monsters, is able to trick Bound Wand to work the best for him too – since Gagaga Magician can increase his Level as high as Level 8, that’s 800 ATK Points that Bound Wand will give him during your turn! Powerful Spellcaster-type monsters like Dark Magician and T.G. Hyper Librarian become even stronger while equipped with Bound Wand, too.
While the ATK boost of Bound Wand can make your Spellcasters pretty tough, the second effect of the Wand can cause your opponent even more trouble. If your opponent destroys the equipped monster, then you can Special Summon that monster monster back from the Graveyard! Your opponent has to take out your monster twice in order to destroy it for good. This effect can combo well with Apprentice Magician, who summons a low-Level Spellcaster when it’s destroyed in battle and puts a Spell Counter on something when you Normal Summon it.
Special Summon Old Vindictive Magician from your Deck with Apprentice, and let Bound Wand summon the destroyed Magician from your Graveyard. Next turn, you’ll be able to flip the Old Vindictive Magician to destroy a monster, then Xyz Summon a Rank 2 Xyz Monster, like Gachi Gachi Gantetsu. You can use this combo with the Gagaga monsters too, returning your Gagaga Magician or Gagaga Girl to the field, to summon almost any Xyz Monster next turn.
Bound Wand also makes one particular Spellcaster card even more devastating. Secret Village of the Spellcasters prevents your opponent from activating any Spell Cards while you control a Spellcaster monster. A powerful Spellcaster-type monster combined with Bound Wand and Secret Village of the Spellcasters makes a crushing lockdown, from which your opponent can’t use any Spell Cards to escape. Mystical Space Typhoon and Dark Hole are unable to help them at all in this situation, and if they manage to defeat your Spellcaster once, they’re going to have to do it again when Bound Wand returns your monster to the field! Bound Wand allows you to keep a Spellcaster on the field for longer, putting even more pressure on your opponent and holding a powerful position in the Duel.
Bound Wand is a cool card that lets you do lots of interesting tricks. Whether you’re setting up Xyz Summons, beating down monsters, or stopping your opponent from mounting a comeback, Bound Wand lets you do all of these things with ease!
