I just tested this in Anti-Meta Gadgets. This thing does damage. It stops swarms dead in their tracks.
From my experience, I've noticed that Gadgets have trouble
against decks that swarm a lot. Metaion not only solves that problem,
but it has amazing synergy with the deck. The only thing that will stop
it is a Solemn Warning or a Dimensional Prison. If the former is used,
your Gadgets are safe and you can +1. The latter can be a problem, but
decks like Six Samurais, Agents and Plants often don't run them.
It's got a few tricks under its belt. Firstly, it will
survive a GB War Chariot or Infernity Barrier, which is an astonishing
advantage (yes, I did check the ruling). That means that even if its
effect is fried, it will still give you an indestructible wall for a
turn. You could even CED or BoM it to have a second attempt at its
What Metaion allows a player to do is to essentially change
who went first. If your opponent summoned a few monsters turn 1, you can
use Metaion to bounce them back. Then you can set your own back row and
have Metaion to guard you for an additional turn.
The fact that Gadgets man 3 PoD and have a lot of deck
thinning really helps to counteract Metaion's drawback, and at the same
time Metaion helps deal with a lot of threats to the Gadget deck.
Metaion can be used in Agents too. You can use Valhalla to
summon this, then Normal Summon Earth. Get your search and bounce Earth
back to your hand with Metaion.
I highly recommend this card to anyone in the OCG who plays
Gadgets or Agents. It really helps against the Samurai and Plant match
ups, and a few other decks too.
