The week ends off with the Dragon form of House Dragonmaid: Dragonmaid Sheou.
Sheou is a Level 10 LIGHT Dragon Fusion with 3500 ATK and 2000 DEF. Great stats overall, LIGHT is great and Dragon is great. The Fusion Materials here are any Dragonmaid monster and any Level 5 or higher Dragon, making it less generic than House Dragonmaid, but the archetype can easily provide those materials still. It’s first effect during each Standby Phase lets you summon a Level 9 or lower Dragonmaid monster from hand or graveyard. Nice to revive the maid forms of the Dragonmaids to cycle through the Deck with ease with Kitchen for your monster searching and Chamber for your Spell/Trap searching while Nurse revives, Parlor dumps from Deck, and Laundry mills. You can even get the bigger Dragonmaids, with the one you’d most likely choose is House Dragonmaid if able. The second effect is a Quick Effect if the opponent activates a card or effect where you can negate and destroy that card, then this card returns to the Extra Deck and you summon a House Dragonmaid from the Extra Deck. This is nice to give the archetype some form of negation while also cycling into your House Dragonmaid, though House can’t cycle directly back into this. I assume it’s mandatory to summon House for the negation, so you’d want to play House without doubt. This card makes immediately going for House Dragonmaid seem pointless as you’d like to get the negation first, then your House on field. Sheou is a great new boss for the archetype that fills the void of House Dragonmaid not having a Dragon form, but now we have Chamber Dragonmaid to lack a Dragon form instead. Each effect on Sheou is a hard once per turn, and that does seem somewhat fair. It’s an important card in Dragonmaids that you’d like to summon as soon as you could. It fills a void by giving you negation in Dragonmaids to play on the opponent’s turn a bit better.
Advanced Rating: 4.25/5
Art: 4.25/5 Now that’s a big Dragon, it’s most certainly House.
Dragonmaid Sheou is a brute of a Fusion to close this week. Level 10, Lighg/Dragon, a wonderful 3500 attack (2000 defense) requiring a fairly odd specific combo of a Dragonmaid and a Level 5 Dragon for a Fusion Summon.
You can Special Summon a Level 9 or lower Dragonmaid Monster from your Hand or Graveyard during each Standby Phase. Nice way to flood your board reasonably quickly and open up your Extra Deck plays. It’s a great effect.
Next, a Quick Effect gives you the option to negate and destroy a card or effect activation your opponent plays, returning this card to your Extra Deck if you’re successful but giving you a House Dragonmaid in its place.
Trading one beefy Fusion for another is cool. Special Summons that come this easily are amazing, and the ability to negate and destroy is always wonderful too. Nice close to the week.
Art: 4.5/5 Lots is darkness here but I love how the background is bright and complimentary.
