With the release of this card, the number of playable field spell cards goes up once again (Necrovalley, Rainbow Ruin, and this).

This card is used in the "Big City" deck that has been floating around lately. This card basically lets you constantly re-summon an E-hero (usually Stratos, Ocean, or Wildheart), re-use that monsters effect (if any), then you clear your opponents field, and swing for damage. The next turn, the destroy your monster, and you do the same this as before the next turn.

It's an interesting little deck, and relatively inexpensive (unless you want TP2 Jar and CP3 Snipe Hunter). Give it a shot.

If this card could revive E-hero Fusions, it would be really good in those types of decks too.....

Not much else to say about this card. It belongs in E-hero Big City decks, simple as that.

Traditional: 1/5 (E-heros? Here? Not so much....)
Advanced: 4/5
Art: 4/5

Field Spells generally suck, and with the exceptions of A Legendary Ocean and Necrovalley, they were never seen in competitive play. Apparently the Card Design Team has noticed this, because lately they have been releasing a slew of decent Field Spells that open up whole new decktypes!

SkyScraper 2 - Hero City is one of those cards, and it has been responsible for many wins at the top tables of both Regionals and SJCs. The card by itself has a decent effect, but when you combine it with cards such as Elemental Hero Stratos and Elemental Hero Ocean, it can become a true powerhouse.

The only way around the field spell is to "Tribute" your opponent's monsters off, instead of just destroying them in Battle. Since the current format seems to revolve around 3x Brain Control, that shouldn't be a problem.

----------------

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 4/5 - it creates it's own decktype, and it can cause all sorts of problems for your opponent.

Skyscraper 2 - Hero City
Field Spell Card
Once per turn, during your Main Phase, you can Special Summon 1 "Elemental Hero" monster from your Graveyard that was destroyed by battle. (Only this card’s controller can use this effect).

Well here we see one of the best Field Spell Cards in the game. The only one maindecked (because OD sided Necrovalley in one SJC) to be in Day 2 twice. This card is one of the main cards in the Big City deck which was piloted by Jeff Jones. Though he didn't get past his top 16 match, this card was a huge help to him and not only with that but Elemental Hero Ocean and Stratos. This is really one of the few really good Field Spell Cards and until Crystal Beasts makes a Day 2, we won't be seeing any other Field Spell Card maindecked other than Skyscraper 2. Sure you can all think that E-Heros are bad, but E-Hero Ocean and Stratos really help this card be really good in the format, not to mention E-Hero Wildheart too.

Traditional: 1/5 I don't like E-Heros here.
Advanced: 3.5/5 We've seen a deck do really well with this card a couple times, and that's why it's rated so high here. The deck is good and bad, but this card helps it run smoother than it would with E-Hero Ocean alone.

Skyscraper 2-Hero City is a good Field Magic Card. That is usually hard to say when referring to a card being good that is a Field Magic Card, let alone one that is for Elemental Hero Decks.

Each turn during your Main Phase, you can revive a fallen Non-Fusion E-Hero of yours, which isn't too shabby. The "Hero City" Deck is popular right now, if not the most successful thing in the world. If you are debating between Skyscraper, and Hero City, this is most likely the way to go.

Skyscraper 2 - Hero City
Field Spell
Once per turn, during your Main Phase, you can Special Summon 1 "Elemental Hero" monster from your Graveyard that was destroyed by battle. (Only this card’s controller can use this effect).

Its one of a few good field spell cards we have right now. This card works amazing when combined with Elemental Hero - Stratos. You can either get another Elemental Hero or free Spell or Trap destruction. If you playing this card your most likely playing Stratos.

Elemental Hero - Wildheart comes back too from the grave with the power of trap cards not effecting him in any way. You can double KO Wildheart with a Snipe Hunter and bring him back next turn for a +1 advantage.

As for defense Elemental Hero - Clayman will lost to a Cyber Dragon no matter what mode its in, but if you bring it back the same 2100 Attacker will have to attack it and that can save you some huge damage. You can also bring him back and tribute him for another monster too like any other of the Elemental Heroes that come back.


Traditional: 1/5 -
Advanced: 3.5/5 - Its very popular right now and it works really well.
Art: 3.5/5 - Heroes in the Future!
