Tips, Related Cards, Rulings

Tips

  • This card is a very 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 Engineer’s position so do take note on that.
  • 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.
  • Take note that due to Ancient Gear Engineer’s immunity towards trap effects, you will not be able to use Metalmorph or Rare Metalmorph on it.

Trap Immunity

These are among the most prominent trap cards in current meta to disable opponent’s strong monsters upon summoning and it will not work against Ancient Gear Engineer upon its summoning.

Suppression during Battle Phase

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 Engineer during its battle phase.

Speed summon methods

  • You can use Treeborn Frog as a tribute for Ancient Gear Engineer.
  • Using Mausoleum of the Emperor, you can pay 1000 LP to Normal summon Ancient Gear Engineer.
  • Using Soul Exchange, you can tribute 1 opponent’s monster as a tribute to summon Ancient Gear Engineer, but it cannot attack that turn.
  • You can substitute Ancient Gear Castle with 1 Counter to Normal summon Ancient Gear Engineer.
  • You can use Cost Down to summon Ancient Gear Engineer without tributes, but you need to discard 1 card as a cost.

Machine Support

This is the recommended support card for Ancient Gear Engineer. Reason being not only this card boosts it’s attack by 400 every turn, it also grants Ancient Gear Engineer 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.

Ancient Gear support

  • These are the useful support cards that can assist Ancient Gear Engineer even further.

Combine this with Gravity Blaster and you'll get field dominance really fast.

I summoned this card and my opponent was able to activate Floodgate Trap Hole. Not sure if this is a glitch or if this is how it's intended to work but unless Konami addressed this I would suggest don't summon unless you're sure your opponent doesn't have it set.

Floodgate doesnt target so it can still work against this card (similar to Mirror Wall as it doesnt target as well). Engineer only negates trap effects that targets him.

Good with Giant Rat. However, since Giant Rat doesn't exist, use Ancient Gear Beast instead of this card.

Ancient Gear Beast don't have trap immunity and does not destroy 1 spell/trap after damage step. This card is wayyy better.

Depends on what you looking for, ATK points is not everything. But sure feel free to stick with Beast only.

Engineer is an underappreciated card. Of course w/ no Giant Rat, he's not worth the sacrifice realistically, but I always kept one around my old AG decks as a jnk (just in case). Not like we aren't rocking MASSIVE back field protection cards right now & Crowler's basic Skill = free tribute summon going 2nd.

Not really. AG monsters suppress spell/traps only when they attack, if ur other monsters attack, they still can trigger spell/traps during battle phase. So mirage dragon still has value.

Sure it's a super op effect but it is a lv5 AND weak.

I'd just stick to sargent electro. Its stronger, doesn't require tribute, doesn't have to attack, doesn't trigger "when this card is destroyed" effects, and stops opponent from playing new card to replace it. Only downside is that it isn't immune to traps, but that means it can be targeted by rare metalmorph.

1 Tribute is easy when Ancient Gear Castle is on the field.

Then why tribute castle for this other than something like, Golem? Getting 2 counters is easy because opponent normal summoning gets you a counter
