T.G. Hyper Librarian (JUMP-EN051)
Card Name: T.G. Hyper Librarian
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
While this card is face-up on the field, each time a Synchro Monster(s) is Synchro Summoned, draw 1 card for each.
This is one of the best (if not the best) support card for any Synchro deck...PERIOD. I'm using the term "support" very loosely because he can stand on his own in most head-to-head battles. The 2400 ATK is very nice for a level 5 monster but it's the "simple" effect that is devastating (don't let the simplicity of this card's effect fool you though). T.G. Hyper Librarian has changed the landscape of dueling across all formats the moment he was released. The ability to be +1 for every monster that is Synchro Summoned has made it possible to bring out some of the most dangerous Synchro Monsters quickly and consistently. Not only do you gain a +1 card advantage when you Synchro Summon a monster, but also when your opponent Synchro Summons a monster. This makes it a priority for your opponent to try and remove this card before they do any Synchro Summoning of their own. In addition, T.G. Hyper Librarian isn't relegated to the "T.G." archetype. He can be splashed into any Synchro Deck out there and flourish just the same. To say this card should be used in a Synchro deck is an understatement...it should be mandatory. Unfortunately, T.G. Hyper Librarian is quite expensive right now because he is sought after by every duelist and collector. Hopefully they will release another card version soon so everybody can afford it. An absolutely fantastic card.
