If you control no monsters, you can Normal Summon this card without Tributing. If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can target 1 Level 8 or lower Machine monster in your GY; Special Summon it in Defense Position, and if you do, its Level becomes 9, also negate its effects. You can only use this effect of "Arcjet Lightcraft" once per turn. You cannot Special Summon monsters from the Extra Deck, except Machine Xyz Monsters.
If we even get this card already, then what's left for V's level up reward and drop?
