#Yugioh Card Review – Link Spider

Well here’s why I kept checking the “2017 Starter Deck” and just couldn’t find any information. Because Konami kept their mouths shut because it’s the new protagonist starter deck and it would’ve spoiled the surprise for the new Link Monsters. Well, cat’s out of the bag now!

Normal Monster
Once per turn: You can Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower Normal Monster from your hand to this card’s Linked Zone.
I actually love this little guy!  A Link-1 monster with 1000 attack and a South Link arrow. He’s a Cyber-type monster, EARTH attribute robo-spider with his little electro-web!  I know he’s going to be a throwaway monster in short order, but I love his artwork! It’s bold and bright and I’m just geeking over it.

To analyze the card itself, it’s very lackluster. 1000 ATK is going to get run over faster than a slow raccoon on a freeway. And with only one Link arrow pointing directly down, he’s clearly meant to just extend that first extra monster zone. Hence his ability to special summon a monster into that linked zone.

Then sac Link Spider and a few other effect monsters to get a “proper” Link Monster out on the field.

I wish he was better than a low-grade transition piece, but I think he’s just swell anyway .. it looks like he’s smiling! And we’re smiling right back at you, Link Spider!
