Hello Pojo Fans,
Dragonmaid Tinkhec is the Honest for the archetype
Discard to add 2000ATK to any Dragonmaid gives your lower Dragonmaid ladies some power, while boosting their dragon forms even higher. You normally wouldn’t pop a 2700ATK monster back to your hand for a Level 3 monster, but as it is an Honest-like monster that can keep being brought back to the hand or field with other Dragonmaids you shouldn’t have an issue abusing this card. Level 3 Dragonmaid to the field is fine, Kitchen or Parlor, depending on your situation whichever effect you need if you have either in your hand. You can’t bring Tinkhec back to the hand if you are without a Level 3 Dragonmaid, but with Tinkhec’s ATK it is a win/win. The protection while a Fusion monster is on the field is a nice added bonus the dragon forms inherit, working with any Fusion monster you may summon, but likely House.
Until Next Time
We looked at Kitchen Dragonmaid yesterday, so for matching purposes we’ll look at her Dragon form, Dragonmaid Tinkhec.
Tinkhec is a Level 8 FIRE Dragon with 2700 ATK and 1700 DEF. Mostly the same as yesterday, only with a greatly better 2700 ATK. It can’t be destroyed by card effects while you control a Fusion Monster (hint hint), which is fine protection on a card you don’t have to put a lot of effort into summoning. Tinkhec also has two hard once per turn effects. The first effect is a Quick Effect to discard itself to target a Dragonmaid and give it 2000 ATK, which can be nice if you know you’ll be stuck with one of the smaller Dragonmaids with low ATK or you can make a big Dragonmaid that much bigger and more dangerous, and being a Quick Effect means you got the Damage Step to use this during. Secondly, at the end of the Battle Phase, you can return this to the hand to summon a Level 3 Dragonmaid from your hand (which is basically all the big Dragonmaid Dragons with their maid forms that are 5 Levels lower). I can appreciate this not making you specifically use Kitchen Dragonmaid in this scenario, but either way you can get the summon effects of your maids once again and those are pretty good. Tinkhec is a pretty solid Dragon in the archetype, so a copy or two is worthwhile in the Deck to make your Dragons bigger, whether it’s a maid or an actual Dragon.
Advanced Rating: 3.5/5
Art: 4.5/5 Just like the maids, I do like the Dragons in the archetype.
Speaking of Level 8 Monsters in the theme to compliment our card from yesterday, here is Dragonmaid Tinkhec. This is a Level 8, Fire/Dragon Monster, with 2700 attack and 1700 defense. I like my Level 8 cutoff to be 2800 (while the 2700 isn’t bad) but that defense isn’t great either. So we’ll immediately mention this card can be Special Summoned at the start of a Battle Phase via yesterday’s card.
Level 8 gives Trade In potential, and Fire (while not HUGELY supported) has some, and Dragons have an insane amount of use and support these days too. So Tinkhec has protection from destruction via card effects so long as you control a Fusion Monster. Boy, there’s a few Dragon Fusions out there, aren’t there, most of which can be played in about any hybrid or variant Dragon theme you’re playing.
Also attached are two effects you can use once each per turn:
*For a Quick Effect, you can discard this card to have a theme Monster you control gain 2000 attack until the End of the turn. Which makes all the weaker, low level Monsters not so weak, if even only for a turn. So I’m liking this, and if used on another Tinhek, that’s 4700 attack. I like that too.
*At the end of the Battle Phase, you can return this card to the Hand to Special Summon a Level 3 theme Monster from your Deck. Which makes me immediately think you’d use Kitchen and you could recycle everything I suppose, but you aren’t locked into that. This card doesn’t do quite as much as yesterday, but it’s still good enough.
Art: 4.5/5 This isn’t quite what I’m use to seeing from a Dragon, but I like all the scales (diamonds?) on the body. The horns are fun, and that bright swirl of colors in the background is pretty neat.
