Ah the gadgets – where would an international super spy be without them? And Drone is extremely useful to Super Agent. By gathering intel and powering up Super Agent and allowing him to use all of his talents. Here’s SPYRAL GEAR – Drone.
If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can look at the top 3 cards of your opponent’s Deck, and if you do, place them on top of their Deck in any order. During either player’s turn: You can Tribute this card, then target 1 “SPYRAL” monster you control; it gains 500 ATK for each card your opponent controls. You can banish this card and 1 “SPYRAL” card from your Graveyard, then target 1 “SPYRAL Super Agent” in your Graveyard; add it to your hand.
Drone’s 1st ability comes in the form of intel gathering. When Drone hits the field you can take a peek at the top 3 cards of the opponent’s deck and reorder them! This does 2 things:
It sets up Super Agent clean. Guaranteed special summon plus you’ll get Agent’s second effect as well to destroy a spell/trap.
Second is benefit of deciding (if only in the short term) what and when your opponent draws his next 3 cards. You could really mess with their strategy and better map out your own.
His next ability is a quick effect that allows him to tribute himself to give any SPYRAL on your field a 500 ATK boost for every card the opponent controls. This (being a quick effect) can occur on an opponent’s turn. That’s a pretty good boost, all things considered. Also, there’s no “once per turn” on this, so you can use this effect – bring him back – and use it again to make a real monster out of Super Agent.
His final effect allows you to banish Drone from your graveyard to add a “SPYRAL Super Agent” from the grave to your hand. So Monster Reincarnation… Warrior Returning Alive, that kinda thing.
This is exactly how archetype support cards are supposed to work. It advances the main monster of the deck. Allows him to hit the field, juices him up, and brings him back. Now the effect is good for any SPYRAL monster so it’s not entirely dead if you have no Super Agents in hand.
He can be easily searched out by another SPYRAL monster and he’s a Machine Duplication target as well. This is one little machine you won’t mind being your eye in the sky!
