Rating8.5 /10


  • Decent attack
  • Can lock 1 card on enemy spell/trap zone each turn while this card on face up on the field.
  • Its effect might force your opponent to activate the targeted spell/trap.


  • This card effect will be nullified when this card remove from the field, and its effect is really situational.
  • Defense is pretty low which makes it an easy target when switched to defense position.
  • Even though it has a decent attack, there are still a lot of level 4 or lower monsters that can surpass it.
  • It's not a guarantee lock on the targeted spell/trap. Your opponent can chain the targeted card if he/she can.


Back row defense

Since Sergeant Electro is susceptible to attacks, it's ideal to have these cards in your back row.

  • Dodge your opponent's attack by switching their monsters to defense position by using Enemy Controller and Security Orb.
  • Once your opponent's monster initiates an attack, use Mirror Wall to decrease its attack by half.

Stats buff

These cards would greatly help Sergeant Electro to make it not susceptible to attacks.

  • You can equip 7 completed to Sergeant Electro since it's a Machine-Type monster. Permanent 700 increase to attack or defense is a great increase in the current meta.

  • Destroy your opponent's monster with a very high attack by equiping Metalmorph. Besides from the 300 boost to its attack and defense, it gains half of the attack of the attack target during the damage calculation.

  • Rare Metalmorph is another card that can only be used to Machine-Type monsters. Activate this card to increase Sergeant Electro's attack by 500. It also has an effect that could negate spells that targets the monster that is affected by Rare Metalmorph's effect.

Leaving the enemy with one card would be very very mean xD
I used this against my opponents Econ Controller and it chained/activated Econ and turned my SE into Def Position?? Is it not suppose to negate that exact effect??
<< Anonymous(Question....)
Anonymous Reply said it yourself. It was chained to your Electro.

Chain Link resolve from the last one, so E-Con resolved first before Electro's effect resolved.

"What deck doesn't run backrow?"

SSA, Sylvan, CA, D-Hero (at least mine doesnt), Archfiend. Hello?

....SSA itself is a backrow.

I've seen Archfiend, D-Hero, and CA running backrow, but I admit I am not familiar with Sylvan.

SSA is a backrow but it can be chained if you use Sergeant. CA running backrow is a very low-rated playstyle, i mean you'll lose its consistency and cant perform OTK. While Archfiend sometimes running backrow and sometimes not, and their engine which is Call of the Archfiend and Escape from Dark Dimension can be chained if you use Sergeant.
How to counter this card ?

Don't fill your back row? Then play enemy controller straight away to flip to defence mode then overpower it"
You're an absolute fucktard dude. People who use electro, intentionally use defensive backrow such as SRH, Mirror Wall,e-con, windstorm, WoD to protect it because they already know the other player wants to destroy it.

summon a stronger monster and attack it while activating anti-magic arrows as a quick play during the start of the battle step.
It gets the opponent by surprise and they won't be able to activate any defensive traps/spells in response to it.

Econ take and then pin your opponent's own backrow with the Electro you just econ took.

Is it worth it to buy this box for this card? Or other box like Generation Next and Servants of Kings are better in terms of future potential? I'm f2p

Hard to tell how the meta will change. Sergent Electro is a good card to add in a lot of decks with the current meta (Horus, Control, Ancient Gear). But you need at the very least two of them + good trap / spell to protect it (Wall of Disruption, eCon, Mirror Wall, Floodgate Trap Hole)

Very good as long as you make anti meta deck and you have 2-3 copies of backrow staple cards

This card is still good. Despite the age of the box, sgt electro is still one of the better cards out there. but imo flame of the tyrant is a not a good box these days due to many of the regular cards being rather weak and outdated. Mirage dragon is a cheaper alternative if you want, but not as good as electro.
The problem with this card is not the effect itself. The problem is that it's ONCE PER TURN. This card, along with the powerful backrow rn (hello, mirror and headlong) to protect it and guarantee it stays on the field, locks most of your spells and traps by your opponent's third turn. If it only locked once, I would not have any issues with Sergeant.
