The Calculator doesn't look very strong, but its effect makes up for it. Its ATK is equal to the total levels of all the monsters you have x300. Since Calculator counts its own levels too, it will have 600 ATK to start off with. As you summon more monsters, it gets even stronger.
-The Calculator is a good addition to the Rise of the Dragon Lords Structure Deck because of the high levelled monsters used in there.
-The Fortune Ladies can be used with Calculator, because the former archetype gains levels each turn, powering up the latter.
-You can use high-level monsters that are easy to summon (like Cyber Dragon or Beast King Barbaros) to give this card a major ATK boost. Metal Reflect Slime works as well.
-The Calculator works well with Junk Synchron and Junk Warrior. The former can Special Summon this card from the Graveyard (at the cost of its effect). Next, you can use Inferno Reckless Summon to bring 2 more copies of this card to the field, with their effects (assuming your opponent has a monster, and you have no other monsters besides the mentioned ones). Then, you can use the Calculator summoned via Junk Synchron and Junk Synchron itself to summon Junk Warrior, who will get a 5400 ATK boost (because of the Calculators summoned with Inferno Reckless Summon)
-This card can be used in an LV deck; as the LV monsters level up, they also power up the Calculator in the process.
-You can use this card in a Five Headed Dragon deck because said card is a level 12 monster. You can also include Red Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon because it can Special Summon itself, as well as a Dragon from your hand or Graveyard)
-To be honest, there are a multitude of decks that are capable of taking advantage of the Calculator's effect (like Swarm decks).
