Madolche Wyvernougat (Made With Sweet Tooths in Mind)

Recommended Posts

Did I put this in the same spot I made a video-famous Madolche Rank 3 almost three years earlier? Well yes I did and now you see just what lengths I'll go to to NOT have to address my lack of work on the Christmas set.




[spoiler=Madolche Wyvernougat: Info]

EARTH/Beast-Type Xyz Effect Monster/Rank 3/2200 ATK/200 DEF


Lore: 2 Level 3 EARTH monsters

When this card is Xyz Summoned: You can banish up to 3 cards from the GYs. Gains 100 ATK for each banished monster. (Quick Effect): You can detach 1 material from this card, then discard 1 card; activate 1 Field Spell from your Deck on either side of the field, then if the card discarded to activate this effect was a "Madolche" card, you can Set 1 "Madolche" Spell/Trap from your Deck, and if you do, the effects of other Spell/Trap Cards in that Set card's column are negated for the rest of the turn. You can only use this effect of "Madolche Wyvernougat" once per turn.




But seriously, this picture by DeviArt's krysfun was begging for a sweet societal tie-in, and I obliged in kind because I'm nice like that. Pretty sure the ways to abuse that first effect will come all too well to anyone who's breathed air about the Seal of Orichalchos. So naturally, I demanded the material requirement be stringent enough...to include Psychic Wheelder. Have fun folks. 


Does set stuff so it can't be immediately run, and it demands a discard to start the procedures off (aka cherries on top of the Hootcake), 


Till the next card, reviews, revelry, you know the drill. 


BD'S, signing off.


UPDATE I: ATK's at 1700 now, and the card gains 100 ATK for each banished monster, so some balance has been restored. Still not sure about making the requirements on this more strict-most stuff isn't EARTH, Level 3, and widely ran, though Wheelder could change that.

I don't like that it has such high original ATK for a 2+ material Rank3 with semi-generic requirements, and can further increase it with an effect. It would make more sense to me if it had a lower ATK but gained X ATK for each material used for it, or attached to it. That way the ATK scales the more materials you use for it.

I really like the detach effect. Activating Fields during either player's turn is deceptively good by grabbing floodgate Fields such as Zombie World, Secret Village (bonus if your have Magileine on board), so this offers value even when running it in EARTH non-Madolche decks. But, if you play this outside of Madolches, you have to pay with a discard, and this is a nice somewhat-balancing touch. However, in Madolches the discard not only pays itself off with a search, also it gets to negate a Spell/Trap, more value! This patches nicely what IMO something Madolches were missing: a disruptive archetype ED monster to go into when going first.


I'm unsure about the first effect. It already provides sweet disruption with its detaching effect. Giving it further disruptive power through GY banishment feel a bit of an overkill.

Amazing artwork.

I agree though that it should be more Xenophobic, you could also make it search their specific Field Spell instead, fixing these issues.

It definitely helps potentially freeing one's graveyard and being able to use this as both an advantage creator and Spell/Trap negator (in case the needed Zone is still empty).

Also it being actual disruption fixes their issue of being terrible at opening the game.

I like this, it is decent, powerful, yet balanced (in case you fix the field spell search) support for an old interesting archtype.

IDK about nerfing the Field searching, except for adding a hard OPT. The card is already non-generic, and a problem with Fairy Dragon was that its Field searching lacked a hard OPT, in combination with its summoning effect for plays in an opening turn.
