Hello Pojo Fans,

Angelica, Princess of Noble Arms is another monster that Ricciardetto could lead into.

Generic Level 5 Synchro, Angelica off her Special Summon gets you a “Horn of Olifant”, a trap that can be a 1-for-1 or a Special Summon three FIRE Warrior monsters totaling 9 stars or something that mentions “Infernoble Knight Emperor Charles” from your Deck to your hand. Only two cards mention Emperor Charles in your Deck: the normal trap “The Continuing Epic of Charles, and the Field Spell Noble Arts Museum. Olifant is an easy 1-for-1 effect, but can be a slower Synchro Summon of your Level 9: Emperor Charles. Museum boosts FIRE monsters and is a 1200LP cost Noble Arms searcher, as well as a Special Summon of a Noble Knight that’s being treated as an Equip Spell. As for the Epic of Charles, you’ll need a Noble Arms for the Special Summon from the Deck. Its grave effect revolves around Emperor Charles (of course) so you’ll need him for that.

Banishing Angelica for a Foolish Burial of a FIRE Warrior monster and then Special Summoning “Roland” from the Deck or Extra Deck is a a +2 because Angelica will be back in the End Phase. The Main Deck Roland is a FIRE Warrior searcher when sent to the grave in the End Phase, or can equip itself to a monster while on the field, which will fuel the spot removal ability of Emperor Charles or Captain Oliver. Sending Maugis can cycle back three targets (Noble Arms or Fire Warrior) and get you a draw, then equip itself to a Warrior on the field in the same turn. Many of the Infernoble Knights equip themselves from the grave which then enable effect(s) on the field, however, Maugis does a lot in one turn as does the Main Deck Roland.

Angelica, Princess of Noble Arms doesn’t do much for Noble Knights, but she does a lot for Infernoble Knights. Easily summoned, a Tuner to further the synchro climb, can protect herself and facilitate big plays during either turn.

Next up for new Infernoble support, we get a brand new Synchro for the archetype to help make even more plays: Angelica, Princess of Noble Arms.

Angelica is a Level 5 FIRE Warrior Synchro with 1200 ATK and 2400 DEF. The DEF stat is certainly preferable, plus the FIRE/Warrior combo for all the Infernoble stuff. Materials are any Tuner and any non-Tuner(s), so generic. Upon being Special Summoned, you can add a Horn of Olifant or any Spell/Trap that mentions Infernoble Knight Emperor Charles in its text from Deck to hand. Horn of Olifant might be ok disruption to have be searchable, but you’re likely focusing on the latter part to get to some play enablers and extenders, which we’ll see tomorrow. The second effect triggers when this card is targeted for an attack or by a card/effect (which your Equip Spells qualify for), letting you send a FIRE Warrior from your Deck to the graveyard to banish this card until the End Phase and then you can Special Summon a Roland monster from the Deck or Extra Deck. It’s another way to use Infernoble Knight – Roland, whether sending it from Deck to grave or Special Summoning it to your field, or you can just outright summon Infernoble Knight Captain Roland directly from the Extra Deck for a quick Level 5 Tuner that also equips itself from the grave to your monsters as a Quick Effect, mainly to trigger Charles’ effect. Hard once per turn on each effect, of course. Angelica is pretty good for searching your important combo pieces as well as being part of the combo beyond that by getting to your Roland monsters and setting up your graveyard. This is a card you’ll almost always see summoned in the Infernoble combos, so a copy or two in the Deck is easily warranted.

Advanced Rating: 4.25/5

Art: 5/5 Noble Knights is another archetype that has always provided great artwork, but this is top tier.

Infernobles get another obligatory princess as a combo piece with Angelica, Princess of Noble Arms, a level 5 FIRE Warrior Synchro monster, much like the Infernoble Knight Captain monsters. Angelica only needs a Tuner and any number of non-Tuners, so it’s easily made with most Infernoble Synchro combinations. Though 1200 attack is rather lackluster, Angelica has a decent defense stat of 2400, which could plausibly come into play since Angelica’s effects let it stay on the field during your opponent’s turn.

Upon being Synchro Summoned, Angelica’s first effect triggers, a hard once per turn effect to search either Horn of Olifant or any card that mentions Infernoble Knight Emperor Charles. While it’s tempting to search Horn of Olifant for a quick pop or The Continuing Epic of Charles for follow up (and a roundabout quick pop), the main card you’ll be searching is Noble Arms Museum to access your Infernoble Arms cards and continue your combo, as otherwise you’ll likely be stuck at Angelica unless you hard opened enough extenders. Speaking of Infernoble Arms, this leads right into Angelica’s second effect, a hard once per turn Quick Effect that triggers when Angelica is targeted by a card or effect or an attack, letting you send a FIRE Warrior from your deck to the Graveyard and banish Angelica until the End Phase to Special Summon a Roland monster from your deck or Extra Deck. Fortunately for us, Equip Spells count as targeting, so the handy Infernoble Arms you just searched (or Phoenix Blade, in some combo lines) will be able to trigger Angelica immediately if you so choose. If you already have setup to revive a level 4 Infernoble, Immortal Phoenix Gearfried isn’t a bad choice to send if it’s not there already, but otherwise you’ll usually be sending Infernoble Knight Turpin to immediately set up summon Infernoble Knight Emperor Charles, as Angelica can cheat out Infernoble Knight Captain Roland from your Extra Deck, setting up Charles’s quick pop effect as well. Furthermore, Angelica banishing itself until the End Phase essentially lets you use it as follow up if it can survive until your next turn and seal your victory. Angelica doesn’t replace Isolde, but it’s a fantastic combo piece that complements Isolde and can function independently in a jam. Every list should run at least one, though some lists elect to run two so that you can use the second effect at a later time (since you might not necessarily want to banish Angelica early on).

Advanced: 4/5

Art: 4.25/5 Not sure why we suddenly went to an orientalist aesthetic, but I’m not complaining! Probably because Turpin also has an Asian aesthetic, for some reason.
