Geargia monsters is a very small archetype. However, due their playstyle of continously recycling each other, they don’t lose field advantage while they Xyz summon the bigger creatures from our Extra Deck. This bring us to the ace monster of the Archetype, and the key of the entire deck.
"Gear Gigant X" is a searcher with very solid stats. Once on the field, the recycling power of the Geargias increases, speeding up the process looking for key monsters. What completes the strategy is, when this Xyz leaves the field (no matter how), he will revive a Geargia, ready for continue the cycle until summon “Gear Gigant X" once again.
Though this Xyz is specifically used for Geargias, we can still use him in other Machine decks, but losing the Geargia revival if we are not carrying them on the deck. Gadgets can increase their searching effects with him, Machina becomes even faster if we search for "Machina Gearframe", and we can swarm even further searching for Morphtronics. Get a "Black Salvo" ready for Synchro summon the next turn. You can also look for "Swift Scarescrow" in case a big attack is coming against you.
Is very easy to summon “Gear Gigant X”. "Geargiaccelerator" is a main card to instantly summon the Xyz on Geargia decks. Gadgets with "Ultimate Offering" can end summoning three copies of this monster in a single turn. "Iron Call" is a Machine’s "Monster Reborn", so various copies are necessary for swarm with this monster. "Fortissimo the Mobile Fortress" helps the Meklords to summon this creature and keep their aggresive Anti-Synchro tactics. Lastly, "Tin Goldfish" can summon another along him and already have the Xyz out. We cannot forget the highly popular arround Xyz summons, "Rescue Rabbit".
But obviusly the big potential of “Gear Gigant X” is with the Geargias. The Xyz only has two targets, "Geargiano" and "Geargiano Mk-II", but are good enough for summon a machine of a higher level, and summon our Xyz once again in an instant.
"Gear Gigant X" has big stats, searches other monsters, and has a revival effect. Is a very big creature which most Machine decks can build arround for don’t lose any card advantage. This Xyz is the main reason Geargia has become a competitive deck in an instant.
