Hello Pojo Fans,
Artemis, the Magistus Moon Maiden is the Link of the archetype, as well as the searcher.
Link 1, Level 4 or lower Spellcaster monster needed means she’s a first-turn Link Monster for you. You’ll need another Magistus monster on the field for her to equip herself and get that search ability going, but with a card like Trismagistus and Magistus Vritra in the deck that could make things easier, along with Zoroa’s ability to equip itself and Special Summon a Magistus from the hand. The search ability is so key though, the archetype having only four Main Deck monsters, and in this strategy it is pretty easy to achieve even in the first turn.
Get a Magistus monster on the field, Link Summon this using it, Special Summon a Magistus somehow and get that free search.
Until Next Time
It’s time to get to the Extra Deck for Magistus and we’ll look at their best Extra Deck card: Artemis, the Magistus Moon Maiden.
Artemis is a Link-1 LIGHT Spellcaster with 800 ATK and an upward arrow. Low ATK as standard for most Link-1s, LIGHT is great, Spellcaster is great, but that arrow is pretty bad considering it gives the opponent a zone. The summoning condition is a Level 4 or lower Spellcaster, meaning Invoked can use this for Aleister the Invoker without more Extra Deck investment. If another Magistus Monster is summoned while you control this Monster, you can equip it to the summoned Monster, which is where you want it considering it lets you search a Magistus Monster while equipped via any way. It’s a great way to search for the archetype and it doesn’t have to be equipped to a Magistus, which first brings Borreload Savage Dragon to mind considering on summon it equips this from grave, but either way getting it equipped via any means is what you want. Each effect is a hard once per turn and you can only summon 1 of this a turn, likely for balancing purposes and I’m sure it isn’t the biggest deal. Artemis is a great Link-1 for Magistus and has some use outside of Magistus or justifies a small Magistus package in a Deck like Dogmatika or Invoked.
Advanced Rating: 4/5
Art: 5/5 I’m a big Selene fan, and the younger version does look nice.
Artemis, the Magistus Moon Maiden is definitely the cutest Yugi-lady we’ve seen in a minute. Light/Spellcaster, Link 1, 800 attack (fine for Link 1) with an arrow pointing directly above and Link Summoned with 1 Level 4 or below Spellcaster Monster. Which does only go to help this Theme. So, if a Theme Monster you control (not herself) is Normal or Special Summoned (save the Damage Step) you can Equip this card to that card. Which is a pivotal strategy in this Theme as you probably picked up a couple days ago now. Pretty open and easy conditions here with this effect, while adding another Equip element into it. While Equipped to a Monster, you can add a Theme Monster to your Hand via your Deck. A free +1 every time straight to the Hand is great for Deck thinning as well as furthering resources and combos, so that’s awesome too. Each effect is once per turn, and only one can be Special Summoned a turn. Which makes sense I suppose. Can’t get and flood TOO much in a single turn. Great card for the Theme though.
Art: Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. 5/5
