General description:
Calculators effect is "This card's ATK is equal to the combined Levels of all monsters you control x 300." Overall its an OK card but not very useful in case you got no monsters on your field. I wouldn't expect people to be using this card in their decks but with this tactic you would.

Uses:
It is used only if you have a lot of monsters on your side of the field. Otherwise its a waste of time and space. Its a simple monster card.

Strategies and game play:
Its good if you have "The calculator" in attack mode whilst got a Metal Reflect Slime face down. If your opponent attacks it then just activate your Metal Reflect Slime and BOOM 3000 points added straight to your Calculator!! (METAL REFLECT SLIME IS A CARD WHICH WHEN YOU ACTIVATE IT, IT BECOMES A LEVEL 10 MONSTER CARD IN DEFENSE MODE WITH 3000 DEFENSE)

Combos with other cards:
Metal reflect slime

Ways to counteract it:
Basic trap cards. Don't go for random attacks without backup against this card.

Strengths/Pros:
Unlimited attack.

Weaknesses/Cons:
Useless if alone on the field.

Variations:
This card is only available as common.
Metal reflect slime is available as ultra rare and ultimate rare.

Artwork and aesthetics:
The artwork of this card looks like a weak monster.

Overall rating:
5

In case someone misunderstands the Metal Reflect Slime/Calculator combo, I wanted to clarify that if you activate metal reflect slime when an opponent's monster attacks your calculator, you must activate it at attack declaration (not during the damage step), so once it hits the field a replay will ensue and the opponent will be able to call off his attack or choose another attack target. The Calculator's attack points will still remain increased as long as metal reflect slime is on the field though, as the review explained.

It can be searched by Rai-mei (the monster, not the spell). There's a monster which can increase its level, Greed Quasar, but I have some doubts if it can go above level 12... Anyway, monsters like Brain Crusher and Goyo Guardian can steal your opponent's monsters and pump up the Calculator at the same time.

Calulators are machines, you cannot make one out of a thunderstorm. WHY ON EARTH IS THE CALCULATOR A THUNDER-TYPE? It should have been an obvius machine!

I loved this card, when used with metal slime and stuff, its beast, and especially since special summons are used a lot in this game now, the calculators power is limitless...just try not to get magical cylindered if you attack, other than that great review.

At least it'll have 600 attack when you summon it because the card states this quote-

quote:
This card's ATK is equal to the combined Levels of all monsters you control x 300.

This'll include itself.
