Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Elemental HERO Voltic

[Thunder/Effect]

ATK/1,000 DEF/1,500

When this card inflicts battle damage to your opponent: You can target 1 of your banished “Elemental HERO” monsters; Special Summon that target.

Elemental HERO Voltic is a thunder monster with a single effect. Elemental HERO Voltic provides support for Elemental Heroes, and he is fusion material for a variety of fusion monsters. This card is a resourceful monster with a useful effect.

Furthermore, Elemental HERO Voltic is a thunder type monster. He is one of the few Elemental Heroes who is not Warrior. You need to play support such as E-Emergency Call due to his archetype. Generic cards for warriors like The Hero Returning Alive does not support this card unlike most Elemental Heroes.

Effect:

Elemental HERO Voltic has a useful effect for Elemental Heroes. Elemental HERO Voltic special summons a banished Elemental HERO to the field when he deals damage to an opponent. You regain a monster from earlier in the duel. It is a useful effect for properly managing resources and regaining a card when you need it.

Furthermore, Elemental HERO Voltic has synergy with Miracle Fusion. Miracle Fusion banishes Elemental Heroes for a fusion summon of an Elemental HERO. You may regain these monsters from this special summon. Elemental HERO Voltic special summons one of those Elemental Heroes, and you may reuse them for another fusion.

However, Elemental HERO Voltic has a low ATK of 1,000. This monster will not be destroying many monsters in battle. You need to clear the opponent’s field of their monsters for Elemental HERO Voltic can deal direct damage.

Special Summon Elemental HERO Voltic:

Elemental Heroes have a good amount of support. Some of their best support special summon monsters to the field. You have many options to special summon Elemental HERO Voltic to the field.

Elemental HERO Solid Soldier may special summon Elemental HERO Voltic from you hand when you normal summon him. It is an efficient tactic to special summon a monster. You have two Elemental Heroes with unique effects on the field.

Fusion Support:

Elemental HERO Voltic is fusion material for a variety of Heroes due to his archetype and attribute of light. Therefore, he is an easy addition to decks. You still maintain the consistency of your fusion summons. Elemental HERO Voltic is just one piece for a strong fusion. You only need the other correct materials and a Polymerization.

Elemental HERO Voltic has the attribute of light, and this trait makes him to be material for Elemental HERO The Shining. You would only need one additional Elemental HERO for the fusion summon. The easy requirements makes this a consistent option. Elemental HERO The Shining is a fantastic monster with strong effects.

Card Rating:

Overall, Elemental HERO Voltic falls short of being a good card for Elemental Heroes. He has potential due to his effect. The only flaw is his low ATK, and you have very few opportunities to activate it during a duel. I only recommend playing Elemental HERO Voltic in a casual deck.

Card Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
