Hello Pojo Fans,
Dogmatika Fleurdelis, the Knighted is a powerhouse.
Same effect for Special Summoning as many other Dogmatika monsters, this is even better since Fleurdelis is Level 8 and 2500ATK. This effect is a Quick-Effect, so Fleurdelis can also be used as a blocker to maintain field presence during your opponents turn, as well as disruption. Breakthrough Skill if you have another Dogmatika monster isn’t hard to come by, you will be getting that negation effect. The ATK boost Fleurdelis gives all Dogmatika monsters and itself is needed in this archetype as four of the seven Dogmatika monsters are at or below 2000ATK, and that attack boost looks to be permanent, so you can keep adding on each turn. Extra 1000LP damage minimum can be the difference between your opponent being able to use a Solemn trap or not. When Ecclesia locks you out of your Extra Deck, Fleurdelis should be close behind offering support for your turn.
Dogmatika Fleurdelis, the Knighted is a stronghold for your Dogmatika monsters once you’ve set everything up and locked yourself out of your Extra Deck.
Until Next Time
We end the week not with the card that seemingly was designed to be the Dogmatika boss monster (Dogmatika Nexus) but instead we got the card that is currently the proper Dogmatika boss: Dogmatika Fleurdelis, the Knighted.
Fleurdelis is a Level 8 LIGHT Spellcaster with 2500 ATK and DEF. Overall pretty solid stats on Level 8, LIGHT and Spellcaster of course are still great. During the Main Phase as a Quick Effect, this card can be Special Summoned from the hand if there’s a monster Special Summoned from the Extra Deck on the field and then if you control another Dogmatika monster, you can negate the effects of one face-up monster on the field. Pretty good alongside Ecclesia to search this and summon it if you already got an Extra Deck monster or the opponent goes into the Extra Deck and disrupt them by negating the effects of one of their monsters. Even if you don’t control a Dogmatika monster, it’s a free and easy Special Summon, which also makes this a good target for Magicians’ Souls alongside Dogmatika Maximus if you have it and can recover it easily. When your Dogmatika monster attacks, you can give a permanent boost of 500 ATK to all Dogmatika monsters you control, which is a nice little boost to go for game and gets more lethal as you have more Dogmatikas. Each effect is a hard once per turn, which is fine overall for not too much swarming, disruption, or ATK power. Overall this is probably your go-to search for Ecclesia to get that negation when needed or get it off Titaniklad if you are able to dump that and instead you can use Ecclesia to get Punishment. Overall, Fleurdelis is a key Dogmatika as a Magicians’ Souls target or to get to hand for its effects and is fine at 1 or 2, depending on space and preference.
Advanced Rating: 4.25/5
Art: 5/5 Secret Rare certainly does most of these Dogmatika cards justice, especially here.
Dogmatika Fleurdelis, the Knighted closes this week. Being Light/Spellcaster still, Level 8, and 2500 attack and defense makes him a fairly formidable foe on both sides here. A Quick Effect lets you Special Summon this card from your Hand so long as there is a Monster on the Field Special Summoned from the Extra Deck (not even yours specifically) during the Main Phase. Then, if you control another Theme Monster, you can negate the effect(s) of another Monster on the Field until the End of the turn. This can work for you with your own Dogmatika Monsters, but also be a huge boon to negating something on your opponent’s side you might not currently have an answer to, but know you can take down in Battle once you don’t have to worry about its effect(s). When you declare an attack, all your Theme Monsters gain 500 attack, which bumps this guy up to 3000 (Mondays card to 2000) all of a sudden this modest boost makes your Monsters that much better. The best part here being that you don’t have the standard Extra Deck Special Summon turn lockout here attached, which might make this card the best of all their Monsters. Fantastic card, and a great boss in this Theme.
Art: 5/5 This looks like a comic book drawing, maybe more of a sketch, but it looks amazing. My favorite art this week by far.
