Synchro Summoning Tune-Up Two!

August 25th, 2015

One of the most important things to think about when you’re adding Synchro power to your Deck is the Tuner monsters you’re planning on playing! Today we’ll talk about 2 new Tuner monsters from the Synchron Extreme Structure Deck that launches on Friday, and 2 Tuner monsters that you can add to your Deck right now!
Jet Synchron is at its best when you play it in a Deck with “Junk” monsters, like Junk Synchron, but it also has a lot of value in any Deck that needs a Level 1 version of Plaguespreader Zombie! Plaguespreader Zombie was a Level 2 Tuner that could be Special Summoned back from the Graveyard by putting a card from your hand on top of your Deck. Jet Synchron can be Summoned back from the Graveyard by sending a card in your hand to the Graveyard.


As a Machine-Type monster with 500 ATK, Jet Synchron can be targeted by Machine Duplication, letting you Summon 2 more copies of it from your Deck and employ a “Synchro Climb” strategy, and it’s the Tuner required for Synchron Extreme’s Jet Warrior! Jet Warrior is a handy Synchro Monster that bounces any card your opponent controls back to the hand if it’s Synchro Summoned, like a scaled down easier to Summon Mist Wurm, and it can be brought back from the Graveyard by Tributing a Level 2 or lower monster. That second effect is especially important if you want to pair Jet Warrior with the second new Tuner from Synchron Extreme, Accel Synchron!


Accel Synchron
is a Level 5 Tuner Synchro monster that anyone can use! The previous Level 5 Synchro Tuner, T.G. Wonder Magician, was only available to Duelists who were playing with “T.G.” non-Tuner monsters, making it tough to use outside a dedicated T.G. Deck. Accel Synchron works with any Tuner and non-Tuners, but if you play with “Synchron” monsters in your Deck, you can use them to adjust Accel Synchron’s Level to make it easier to Synchro Summon with.


Tuner Synchro monsters are important because many of the hugely powerful ace Synchro Monsters have to be Summoned using Tuner Synchro monsters and non-Tuner Synchro Monsters. Having a Tuner Synchro that can adjust its own Level makes it way easier to Summon things like T.G. Blade Blaster, Shooting Quasar Dragon, and Synchron Extreme’s own Stardust Warrior!


Tatsunoko from Clash of Rebellions is a Level 3 Tuner Synchro Monster that’s useful both as an attacker and as a Tuner! As a 1700 ATK monster that’s unaffected by other monster effects, it’s a safe pick for attacking past cards like Nekroz of Valkyrus or any of the many monsters that can take down any monster that destroys them. As a Tuner, it lets you break the rules of Synchro Summoning by allowing you to use 1 monster from your hand as part of a Synchro Summon! It’s way easier to Summon huge Synchro Monsters like Star Eater if you can use a high-Level monster from your hand as Synchro Material instead of needing to Summon it first!


Last but not least, Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit from Crossed Souls has been making waves all summer long, most recently in the World Championship! It’s a Psychic-Type, Level 3 Tuner that has the ability to destroy any card on your opponent’s field that activates an effect, making it an effective way to destroy monsters, Spells, and Traps in addition to being a handy tool for Synchro Summoning!


Synchron Extreme arrives this Friday, August 28th!
