Hello Pojo Fans,

Aromalilith Rosalina begins our look at the Aromalilith archetype, which looks to be a an extended support to the Aroma archetype.

Another day, another target for One for One, as Rosalina is a Level 1. Nothing going for her with ATK/DEF, but her Tuner status and the ability to Special Summon a non-Tuner Aroma monster from the deck upon her summon opens her up to being a 1-card Synchro or Link 2 combo, or even a Fusion Summon with the one Fusion Monster within the archetype. The archetype boasts a Link and two Synchro Monsters that can be summoned off of Rosalina, and at no discard cost to boot. You can go outside the archetype for your summons after using Rosalina, but you are locked into Plant-Type monsters for the turn. Circle of the Fairies can help you gain LP while doing LP damage to your opponent, while Queen of Thorns can punish anyone Special Summoning from the hand.

Discarding this card allows you to target an Aroma you control and gain LP equal to half their ATK. The LP gain for you and LP depletion of the opponent is all part of the Aroma strategy, but I’m not sure why you’d want to discard Rosalina when she’s a combo within herself. I think the only reason you’d need this effect is to boost your LP over your opponent’s LP so that you’ll gain something like an ATK boost from Aromaseraphy Rosemary or Sweet Marjoram’s targeting protection for Plant monsters, otherwise that ability to get into your Extra Deck is too good.

Aromalilith Rosalina is a card you need to see in the opening hand or get to within the archetype. Granting easy access to your Extra Deck, you almost don’t need the discard ability, but that helps give you the potential to push your LP higher than your opponent, and that ties into the archetype’s monsters.

Advanced- 3.5/5
Art- 4/5- This archetype is all about the artwork

It’s time for Aroma to make yet another appearance after an absence for a few years, and now we seem to be getting a darker line of them with the -lilith series, so we’ll look at the first one with Aromalility Rosalina.

Rosalina is a Level 1 DARK Plant Tuner with 0 ATK and DEF. Bad stats, but being a DARK Plant is great, and Level 1 Tuners are nice. The first effect is a Quick Effect to discard this card in order to target a Aroma monster you control to gain LP equal to half its ATK. The LP gain is useful in Aroma to trigger your effects, some get you more cards while others will remove the opponent’s cards from the field. Having a LP gaining effect on a Quick Effect is good to trigger said effects on the opponent’s turn to make multiple disruptive monsters live. The other effect triggers on Normal or Special Summon, letting you summon any non-Tuner Aroma from the Deck, but you can only Special Summon Plants for the rest of the turn. Plant goodstuff at least has some nice monsters to put on an end board, some of which do come from the Aroma archetype. Being able to get a monster from the Deck to summon your Links, or maybe the Aroma Synchro, is fairly nice. It’s a fast way to get to Aromaseraphy Jasmine, which is a great card for anything Plant related. Each effect is a hard once per turn, which is fine for how much this does do for Aroma. It’s an overall great card, and it does help give Aroma a place in Plant goodstuff now for improving your end board. Pure Aromas you’ll likely play more than 1, but having this in the generic Plant Deck to add Aroma plays to your line-up is a good boost after the January F/L List.

It was bound to happen sooner or later– this week we’re covering the new Aroma support in Phantom Nightmare, which I was dreading since Plant deck combos are quite a handful to learn, but I’ll do my best to briefly break them down anyway! Aromalilith Rosalina is a level 1 DARK Plant Tuner monster; much like with Raidraptor last week, there are so many ways to search it I’m not even going to bother listing them out, though I’ve found that you’ll usually search it off of Aromaseraphy Jasmine or Humid Winds through tomorrow’s card, Aroma Blend. As expected of a level 1 Tuner, Rosalina’s stats are a pitiful 0 for both attack and defense, so don’t bother trying to fight with it.

Rosalina has two hard once per turn effects. The first effect is a Quick Effect, letting you discard Rosalina to target an Aroma monster you control and, in typical Aroma fashion, gain Life Points equal to half of that monster’s attack. Gaining LP during your opponent’s turn is essential with the new support, as one of your main disruptions is triggering Aromaseraphy Sweet Marjoram and Dried Winds for their pop effects, and in a pinch you can discard Rosalina to trigger Jasmine’s search as well (though on your turn, you’ll want to hold on to Rosalina unless you have a copy to spare in your hand to summon it later). Rosalina’s other effect triggers on Normal or Special Summon, Special Summoning any non-Tuner Aroma monster from your deck, though you’ll be locked into Special Summoning Plant monsters for the rest of the turn. Most of the time, this is the easiest way to summon Sweet Marjoram since you’ll summon (go figure) the level 5 Aromage Marjoram, grabbing Dried Winds in the process. Alternatively, you can summon Aromage Laurel and go into Jasmine for other combo lines. Usually I’d say the lock doesn’t matter, but in Therion hybrids, it’ll lock you out of Therions “King” Regulus, so you should probably avoid summoning it too early if you run that package. Still, Rosalina is yet another extremely powerful tool for Plant decks, not just Aroma, which will be a recurring theme this week. Pure decks should run three copies, though hybrids are fine with just one or two since it’s just a combo piece anyway.

+Instantly summons Sweet Marjoram
+Extra copies can help maintain LP and trigger disruptions
-Doesn’t fully combo on its own
-Lock can be problematic with Therion package
