Being the strongest ATK and DEF stats monster in its archetype, this card is an extremely powerful attack machine that can go straight for your opponent's’ monsters or even attack your opponents directly, disregarding any face-down - Spell/Traps they have in place. However, Sphere Kuriboh can still be used to switch your Ancient Gear Golem’s position so do take note on that, although by doing so your Golem still remains as a powerful defense monster on the field.
Always remember, Ancient Gear archetypes have access to both Machine-type support cards and Ancient Gear support cards, so you can build your deck with the best support cards among them.
Do take note that before/during attack declaration, your Ancient Gear monsters are still susceptible to cards like Forbidden Chalice, which will negate your Ancient Gear monsters suppression effect until your End Phase, in which this will allow your opponents to respond with their face-down Spell/Traps during your Damage step.
During a mirror match, if the opponent’s Ancient Gear monster attacks your Ancient Gear monster which is equipped with Gravity Blaster, it will negate your opponent’s Ancient Gear monster’s suppression effect and allows you to respond with face-down spell/traps.
These are among the most prominent Spell/Trap cards in current meta that are triggered during Battle Phase, to protect monsters on the field and it will be suppressed by Ancient Gear Golem during its battle phase.
This is the recommended support card for Ancient Gear Golem. Reason being not only this card boosts it’s attack by 400 every turn, it also grants Ancient Gear Golem the ability to negate monster effects that it destroys, effectively making it heavily immune to Spell/Trap/Monster Effects during the Battle Phase. And as a bonus, the 400 attack increase will continue every turn, even after this card is removed from the field. However, do take note that monsters’ effects are still able to be activated from the graveyard.
Ultimate Pound is basically a worse version that can attack multiple times, but require you to discard machines in your hand to activate- AND doesn’t come with the original’s important backrow negation.
In short, the Original Ancient Gear Golem is much better 9/10 times
MY BLUE EYES WHITE DRAGON WILL STILL BEAT THIS PATHETIC MONSTER
So I've played a few games in a row and it doesn't give me a chance to activate sphere kuriboh against his attack?? Any ideas why.. is this a game error or something to do with the settings or am I just wrong and sphere kuriboh counts as a spell??
