#Yugioh Card Review – Super Quantal Mech Beast Magnaliger

So what is a Quantum powered champion of justice going to do when the villians have them on the ropes?  Call the robots!

Level 5 monsters
Cannot attack unless it has Xyz MaterialOnce per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 monster on the fielddestroy it. This effect can be activated during either player’s turn, if this card has “Super Quantum Red Layer” as Xyz Material. Once per turn: You can attach 1 “Super Quantum” monster from your hand or field to this card as an Xyz Material.

Magnaliger is a Rank 5 FIRE machine-type XYZ monster with 2600 ATK.  It is the most physically imposing of the three Beast mechs.  Magnaliger would be piloted by Red Layer, but the Mechs are actually (and very conveniently) generic.  But there is a benefit to utilizing the correct Layer.

Magnaliger’s first effect is a restriction that says if there are no materials attached to this monster it can’t attack.  This may just be a coy little nod at the idea that the Mech needs a pilot, but it’s not a convenient one. This particular effect is shared by all three of the Super Quantal Mech Beasts.

His next effect is far more useful by comparison: during either player’s turn you can detach an XYZ material to target and destroy one monster on the field.  This is a pretty standard effect generally speaking, but the “either player’s turn” bit gives it a little more ooph.

His final ability is that while Red Layer is a material attached to this monster, you can attach a Super Quantum monster from your hand or field to this card as XYZ material. This is a fantastic ability.  The idea that if you’re a little judicious in its use, you can have Magnaliger ready to go anytime.

It should be noted that this card is a generic XYZ monster. You could overlay into him with Noble Knight Eachtar and Cyber Dragon if you were so inclined. But there’s an obvious benefit to playing the intended way.

Also this illustrates how powerful the field spell Magnacarrier is.  Magnacarrier (in case you missed it) can overlay a single Super Quantum Layer into it’s appropriate Super Quantal Mech Beast.  With the third effect live you can add more Layers to your Mech Beast as material to keep its effects live.  These things will just keep going after you.
