I want to talk about the new support we got in “Invasion Of Venom” for my favorite deck from the last expansion, “The Dark Illusion”: Metalfoes
The archetype was pretty well supported when it first came out in the past set, and I’m happy to see that we’re receiving new support not too long after its debut: 1 Effect Pendulum Monster (the first Main Deck Effect Monster) and 2 new Fusion Monsters with one of them having been revealed during the countdown to the set’s release already, and one Quick-Play Spell Card.
Let’s move on to them:
Raremetalfoes Bismagia [FIRE | Level 1 | Scale 8 | Psychic/Pendulum/Effect | ATK/ 0 DEF/ 0] Pendulum Effect Once per turn: You can target 1 other face-up card you control; destroy it, and if you do, set 1 “Metalfoes” Spell/Trap Card directly from your Deck. Monster Effect If this card on the field is destroyed by battle or card effect: You can add 1 “Metalfoes” monster from your Deck to your hand during the End Phase of this turn. You can only use this effect of “Raremetalfoes Bismagia” once per turn.
Fullmetalfoes Fusion [Quick-Play Spell Card] Fusion Summon 1 “Metalfoes” Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck, using monsters from your hand or field as Fusion Materials.
Fullmetalfoes Alkahest [FIRE | Level 1 | Psychic/Fusion/Effect | ATK/ 0 DEF/ 0] 1 “Metalfoes” monster + 1 Normal Monster Must be Fusion Summoned and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. Once per turn, during your opponent’s turn: You can target 1 Effect Monster on the field; equip that target to this card (this is a Quick Effect). This card gains DEF equal to the combined original ATK of monsters equipped to it by this effect. While this card is equipped with a Fusion Material(s) listed on a “Metalfoes” Fusion Monster, you can use that equipped card(s) you control as a Fusion Material for that Fusion Monster.
Metalfoes Mythriel [FIRE | Level 6 | Psychic/Fusion/Effect | ATK/2600 DEF/1000] 1 “Metalfoes” monster + 1 Pendulum Monster You can target 2 “Metalfoes” card in your Graveyard and 1 card on the field; shuffle the first targets into the Deck, and if you do, return the second target to the hand. You can only use this effect of “Metalfoes Mythriel” once per turn. If this card is sent from the field to the Graveyard: You can Special Summon 1 face-up “Metalfoes” Pendulum Monster from your Extra Deck, or 1 “Metalfoes” Pendulum Monster from your Graveyard.
I like them all, to be honest. Fullmetalfoes Fusion kind of reminds me of the now banned El Shaddoll Fusion, that card along with Alkahest is very good combo: you steal one of your opponent’s effect monster and then use it as a material that same turn for a fusion summon. Mythriel is very useful to return cards such as Fullmetalfoes Fusion (that unlike Metalfoes Fusion, it can’t return itself to the Deck), Metalfoes Combination and Alkahest (since it can only be Fusion Summoned) to maintain the consistency of the Deck and to always have something to search with their pendulum effects. Bismagia is a very good searcher: you destroy it to set any spell/trap you need and then you add 1 “Metalfoes” monster during your End Phase; I’m a little bit annoyed of it being level 1, though, since it cannot be pendulum summoned, but there are other ways to get it back: Mythriel, Pendulum Reborn, Metalfoes Counter, just to mention some of them.
This new support is awesome, let’s see if I can make a very good Deck with it.
3 new cards for the Darklord theme in Destiny Soldiers.
You can only Special Summon “Darklord Mastema”(s) once per turn. You can only use the (2) effect of “Darklord Mastema” once per turn.
(1): If this card is in your hand: You can discard 2 other “Darklord” or “Fallen One” monsters; Special Summon this card.
(2): During either player’s turn: You can pay 1000 LP, then target 1 “Darklord” Spell/Trap Card in your Graveyard; this effect becomes that target’s effect when that card is activated, then shuffle that target into the Deck.
Darklord Kaidan (name to be updated)
You can only activate 1 “Darklord Kaidan” per turn.
(1): Special Summon 1 “Darklord” or “Fallen One” monster from your Graveyard in Defense Position.
