Extreme Force: Wee Woo Wee Woo

January 26th, 2018

Are you a fan of Level 4 monsters with 2000 ATK that you can Normal Summon? Do you like preventing your opponent from using monster effects? How do you feel about card names that are puns? If you’re a fan of any (or all) of those things, you’ll love Inspector Boarder in Extreme Force!

Inspector Boarder is a Level 4 LIGHT Machine with 2000 ATK and 2000 DEF. Its effect reads as follows:

Cannot be Normal or Special Summoned if you control a monster. Neither player can activate a monster effect unless the number of monster effects that player has previously activated that turn is less than the number of monster card types currently on the field (Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, Pendulum, and Link). (If an effect’s activation was negated, it still counts toward the total for that turn. Only count effects that were activated while this monster was face-up on the field.)

Inspector Boarder’s text may seem complicated, but the card is quite simple. First, you can’t Summon it if you control any monsters. Then, once it’s on the field, its effect kicks in.

While Inspector Boarder is on the field, it “inspects” the field for Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, Pendulum, and Link Monsters before deciding whether or not to allow a monster effect to activate. If none of those types of monsters are on the field, no monster effects can be activated.

That makes Inspector Boarder a powerful first-turn Summon. If you Summon Inspector Boarder on your first turn, your opponent can’t immediately use the effects of popular monsters like SPYRAL Quik-Fix, Trickstar Candina, Aleister the Invoker, and Blackwing – Gofu the Vague Shadow.

NoNoNo

Each time an opponent wants to activate a monster effect, Inspector Boarder checks how many monster card types among the 6 types that it looks for are on the field. If your opponent has already used at least that many monster effects while Inspector Boarder was on the field, no more monster effects can be used.

If your opponent Summons one of the monsters pictured above and wants to use its effect while Inspector Boarder is on the field without any other monsters, Inspector Boarder notices that “zero” types of monsters that is checks for are on the field, and then prevents your opponent from activating more than “zero” monster effects in a turn.

Here’s another example of how Inspector Boarder’s effect works: Let’s say your opponent has the Link Monster Link Spider on the field while you control Inspector Boarder. If your opponent hasn’t used any monster effects during that turn and then Summons Trickstar Candina, your opponent will be able to use Candina’s effect to search for a Trickstar card. But if he or she does, there will need to be at least two different types of monsters on the field that Inspector Boarder checks for before Inspector Boarder will allow your opponent to activate another monster effect during that same turn.

In most cases, Inspector Boarder will completely stop your opponent from activating any monster effects. Since most Duelists rely on monster effects to build a field and then perform Special Summons from the Extra Deck, Inspector Boarder’s effect will stymie just about any opponent.

You can get your hands on Inspector Boarder at the Extreme Force Sneak Peek on January 27th and January 28th!
