Card Tips:Spell Gear
- To easily activate this card, use "Machine Duplication" on a face-up "Ancient Gear" monster with 500 ATK or less to summon 2 more of the selected card from your Deck.
- "Alchemy Cycle" can also help, as you can reduce the ATK of any "Ancient Gear" monster to 0, which will make them eligible for "Machine Duplication".
- You can also use "Darkworld Shackles" to reduce the "Ancient Gear" monster to 100 ATK. This is a simpler strategy if you draw "Spell Gear" early in the Duel.
- After using this card, you can use "Limiter Removal" to inflict massive damage, but if you cannot end the Duel by the end of the Battle Phase, you will be left wide open at the end of the turn.
- You also can use "Ancient Gear" non-Monster Cards, like "Ancient Gear Castle", "Ancient Gear Fist", "Ancient Gear Fortress", "Ancient Gear Reborn" or "Ancient Gear Tank".
- You can also Special Summon "Ancient Gear Engineer" or "Ancient Gear Soldier" and then use "Inferno Reckless Summon", but be cautious of cards such as "Torrential Tribute". For the requirements of "Inferno Reckless Summon", you could use cards like "Soul Rope" or "Back to the Front", but you cannot use "Giant Rat".
- Use "Change of Heart" before activating this card to destroy an opponent's monster.
