Hello Pojo Fans,
Aromaseraphy Jasmine wraps up support we’ve been waiting for in the TCG for a long time.
Corner arrows for Plant-type strategies, highest ATK of the Link 2 monsters we’ve looked at this week. LP manipulation is an Aroma strategy, but Plant-based strategy can do the same. Keep your LP above your opponents and Jasmine will protect your plants and herself from battle destruction (love that they included that in her effect). Pop a monster this points to and you get a Special Summon and deck thin for a plant. Doesn’t matter it’s in defense, its effect(s) are online and you don’t need to tribute a plant for Jasmine’s effect, it can even be a token. Any level plant monster means a faster way of getting to the plant princesses, which have pretty high defense. Normally you are using this to get to your key pieces like Lonefire, Spore, Glow-Up Bulb, etc., but you can get offensive beatsticks as well. Scorpio into Cobra makes her and gets you a “Fusion” card which will get you another monster, which you’d summon to the link arrow and then pop to get another Plant-Type from the deck to continue the plays. If you gain LP someway you get a Plant RoTA. This can happen during either players turn, so if your opponent Upstart Goblin’s you, you get that 1000LP bump and a search. If Dandylion was still legal in the TCG this card would even easier to summon and could be used in generic non-plant decks that tech a few plants like the Tuner plants, as well as Lonefire, and Dandylion.

Until Next Time
Aromaseraphy Jasmine closes the Link Week. She’s a Link 2 Light Plant-type Link Monster with 1800 Atk and the bottom diagonal arrows. She requires any 2 plant monsters to properly Link Summon, but none of her effects are tied to Link Summon. I suppose she needs to be in the Extra Monster Zone to point downward to anything. If your Life Points are higher, then any Plant she points to and herself are immune to battle destruction. You can also tribute a pointed monster to Special Summon any Plant from your deck in def position. Any and all effects of the newly Special Summoned monster are fair game, or you can just Link Climb some more. That effect is a hard once per turn, even if you did have multiple Jasmine on your field. The final effect finally doesn’t need her to be in the Extra Monster Zone. If you gain Life Points during either player’s turn, you get to add any Plant from your deck to your hand. That effect would happen multiple times if you had multiple Jasmine on the field, though that seems unlikely. Even searching just once during your turn is an added benefit to a card full of benefits. Aromaseraphy Jasmine has some protection, some combo potential, and some search ability. All of the effects directly aid Aroma themes, but can easily be utilized for plants in general. As such, if you run about 5 Plants, consider using Jasmine as some interesting tech. Happy Friday!

A week full of Link Monsters ends (don’t worry, there’s a few more next week) with the Aroma Link that seems like generic Plant support so good that Dandylion, Phoenixian Cluster Amaryllis, and Samsara Lotus were banned long before this thing hit the TCG (the latter two because of FTKs and Dandylion because of Links making Tokens busted), and this along with the mythical Crystron Needlefiber might get Glow-Up Bulb banned, so here is Aromaseraphy Jasmine.
Jasmine is a Link-2 LIGHT Plant with 1800 ATK and with Bottom Left/Bottom Right arrows. 1800 ATK is pretty satisfactory on a Link-2, arrows are lovely, I like the LIGHT attribute, and Plant is always a fun type. The summoning requirements are 2 Plant monsters, as you’d expect, and there’s a ton of good Plant support to make this possible, even without Dandylion. If your LP are higher than your opponent’s, then this card and any Plants it points to cannot be destroyed by battle. All Aroma monsters have something to do with you having more LP, so battle protection here is appreciated, and there are going to be moments when you have more LP, unless you play Destrudo, cause paying half your LP is big early on. You can tribute a monster this card points to in order to Special Summon any Plant from the deck in Defense Position. No restrictions means there’s so many things you can do with this, especially since you can grab Lonefire Blossom for massive deck thinning and summon anything like the Plant Princesses, Glow-Up Bulb, Predaplant Orphys Scorpio, there’s so many good Plants in this game. You can summon the Aroma monsters as well, which Aromage Jasmine is likely your target with its 1900 DEF. Fitting the summon a Plant from the deck is the hard once per turn on this card, as it should be. The final effect is a soft once per turn, and it has to do with Aromas again as if you gain LP, you can search for any Plant. Sure, there aren’t too many cards that let you gain LP that are worth playing, Aroma Garden might be the best for this card, but if you have LP gaining cards, then searching for literally any Plant is amazing, with your target most likely going to be Lonefire Blossom. Each effect here is meant to help Plants, with its best effect making it worthy for every Plant deck to have, but I can appreciate how the other two effects are meant to help Aroma decks and they’re both really good as well. It’s an amazing card for generic Plant support, but even better when you play it in the deck it is meant for.
Advanced Rating: 4.5/5
Art: 4.25/5 The original Jasmine was kinda cute, so this one is a bit cuter in my eyes. I just want Aromaseraphy Bergamot and Cananaga just so Angelica can transform all the Aromage monsters into Aromaseraphy monsters finally.
How is this card not a Fairy? Right, it would hurt her playability with Plants. Aromaseraphy (another word that’s not a word) Jasmine closes the week. Our Pixie little Friend is a Link 2, Light attributed, Plant Monster, with 1800 attack and (again, still) arrows pointing to the bottom respective diagonals. Jasmine is Link Summoned with any two Plant Monsters.
In a semi-weird twist here, this first effect deals with Lifepoints. Specifically, if you have more than your opponent, this card, as well as any Linked to her, can’t be destroyed in Battle. It’s an odd little, specific protection, but a protection nonetheless, and that’s a good (enough) ability. But it becomes more valuable when you throw in the second ability.
You can Tribute a Monster that is Linked to this card to Special Summon a Plant Monster from your Deck in Defense position. Lonefire Blossom immediately comes to mind, for one, which only further speeds things along. The second effect is once per turn, and I see why. Finally, once a turn if you gain Lifepoints, you can add any Plant Monster from your Deck to your Hand.
Glow Up Bulb, Dandylion (even though it’s Banned sadly), Spore, just off the top of my head, there are plenty of options and plays to go into with this, whatever you choose to Special Summon or fetch from the Deck. Jasmine just opens the entire playbook up for the Plant player. And the 1800 attack is actually not bad at all for a Link 2 Monster either.
Rating: 4.75/5 She’s damn good at what she does for/in the Theme
Art: 5/5 IT’S A FAIRY! She’s gorgeous, as is everything in this picture.
