Ancient Millennium: Vellian Crowler’s Ancient Gears

February 23rd, 2018

Legendary Duelists: Ancient Millennium powers up strategies from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX!  Among those are Dr. Vellian Crowler’s Ancient Gear Deck, which revolve around his ace monster Ancient Gear Golem which has 3000 ATK, the ability to do piercing battle damage and prevents your opponent from activating Spells and traps when it attacks!  The cards we’re looking at here will give you more chances to Summon the powerful Ancient Gear Golem – or some form of it anyway. 


First up is Ancient Gear Frame, a Level 4 Machine whose effect lets you discard a card to add Ancient Gear Golem or a Spell/Trap card that specifically refers to Ancient Gear Golem from your Deck to your hand.  Ancient Gear Frame’s other effect will Special Summon up to 3 copies of Ancient Gear Golem or Ancient Gear Golem – Ultimate Pound from your hand if Ancient Gear Frame leaves the field because of an opponent’s card effect.  Popular traps like the recently unlimited Torrential Tribute could clear the field but Ancient Gear Frame could leave behind three 3000 ATK monsters in its wake if you prepared correctly!


If you already have enough copies of Ancient Gear Golem in your hand, you could use Ancient Gear Frame to add the new Trap Card Cross-Dimensional Duel!  When Cross-Dimensional Duel initially resolves, you banish an Ancient Gear monster you control.  In the next Standby Phase, it comes back to the field with its ATK doubled until the end of the turn.  If you banish an Ancient Gear Golem on your opponent’s turn with Cross-Dimensional Duel, on your turn you’ll have a 6000 ATK piercer that prevents all Spell and Trap activations when it attacks.  And even if your opponent finds a way to destroy your Ancient Gear Golem, they’ll have to do it twice thanks to Cross-Dimensional Duel’s Graveyard effect!  By banishing Cross-Dimensional Duel from the Graveyard, you can protect your Ancient Gear Golems and/or your Ancient Gear Golem – Ultimate Pounds from being destroyed by battle or card effect.


If you’re looking for an explosive play, you can instead use Ancient Gear Frame’s effect to add to your hand the new Spell Card Ancient Gear Fusion!  As you might expect, Ancient Gear Fusion lets you Fusion Summon a monster with Ancient Gear in its name using monsters in your hand and under your control as Fusion materials.  But if you use an Ancient Gear Golem or Ancient Gear Golem – Ultimate Pound you control as a material, you can also use monsters from your Deck as additional materials!  Now, you could go for the classic Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem, but you may also want to take a look at the newest weapon in Crowler’s arsenal…


Ancient Gear Megaton Golem requires any 3 Ancient Gear monsters and has 3300 ATK and DEF alongside the standard “opponent can’t activate Spell/Traps when it attacks” ability for the Ancient Gear monsters.  But it also comes with the ability to attack multiple times, up to the number of Ancient Gear Golems and Ancient Gear Golem – Ultimate Pounds used for its Fusion Summon.  And to top if all off, if your opponent gets it off the field with one of their card effects, Ancient Gear Megaton Golem will Special Summon the original Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem (a 4400 ATK monster with piercing) to take its place!

Crowler’s army of Ancient Gear monsters marches into your Official Tournament Stores on February 22nd and everywhere else on February 23rd!
