Hello Pojo Fans,
We’ve got a 2-for-1 Tuesday, looking at an Xyz Monster and a Quick-Play. First, we’ve got one of the possible three Rank 2 monsters in the Purrely archetype: Epurrely Beauty.
Two Level 2 monsters needed for the Xyz Summon, though this archetype doesn’t have dedicated Level 2 monsters, so you’re going to use Purrely and a Quick-Play for its summon, and it would prefer if you used a specific one, specifically Purrely Pretty Memory. Cost-free negation of an opponent’s monster’s effect(s) until the end of the turn is pretty good for a monster with 1600ATK monster. There are plenty of Level 2’s that could be used to make this monster as well, but you won’t get any of the archetype-specific bonuses. The effect becomes a Quick-Effect if you have “Purrely Pretty Memory” attached as a material. This makes a big difference than just having any other Level 2’s, making Epurrely Beauty a disruption instead of just a weapon on your turn.
Every Purrely Rank 2 has the power to up to three times per turn attach a Purrely Quick-Play Spell to them as material. When they do this, they also get something else to go with it. In the case of Beauty, you can change the battle position of a monster your opponent controls. With big monsters many times having weak DEF as a balance this could help with drawing out negations or succeeding and making it easier for your monsters to defeat them in battle (especially if attacking with the Rank 2 Purrely monsters). Link monsters aren’t bothered by this but every other monster is so it is a good effect. In terms of advantage, this effect isn’t the best that the Rank 2 Purrely monsters gets from using this attach ability, but it will likely always be available to you.
Ability to get several materials on it quickly to Xyz climb into the bigger Purrely Xyz monsters, good effect when attaching a Purrely Quick-Play to itself up to three times per turn, and you don’t lose out on activating the Quick-Play like you do with the original Purrely to Special Summon one of your Rank 2’s. Epurrely Beauty isn’t the best of the Rank 2’s, but she’s a good Rank 2.
Purrely Pretty Memory is one of the three Quick-Play Spells in the Purrely archetype. While I don’t like giving my opponent any sort of LP aside from with Upstart, each player gains 1000LP when you play Pretty Memory. PPM after activation can Special Summon a Purrely from your Deck at the cost of a card, making that effect a -1. No one likes a -1 unless it immediately gets you advantage from whatever you discarded. You only have one Purrely monster you are running in the deck, so PPM is a Quick-Play One For One. If PPM is attached as a material on an Purrely Xyz monster it gains a 1-for-1 effect that trades a card on your side of the filed to attach an opponent’s monster as a material. “Send” not “destroy” or “tribute” may prevent your from gaining advantage off this, but with the amount of cards that don’t care how they hit the grave to activate effect(s) nowadays it is really up to how you build the deck. Trading a card to get rid of an opponent’s monster without them having access to it until you detach it or they destroy your Xyz monster keeps them from using it again and is a great spot removal for you.
Attaching PPM onto a Rank 2 that can up to three times per turn attach a Purrely Quick-Play and gain an effect of its own through doing that each time translates into advantage for you on the field. Purrely Pretty Memory without being attached is another way to get to Purrely so you can start Xyz climbing if you don’t draw it or another way of getting it to the field.
Until Next Time
Speaking of Xyzs for this archetype, we got the first one and the Quick-Play Spell that goes with it to boot on this Twofer Tuesday review as we look at Epurrely Beauty and Purrely Pretty Memory.
We’ll start with Pretty Memory, a Quick-Play Spell that lets each player gain 1000 LP, then you can apply the effect to discard a card to summon a Level 1 Purrely monster directly from the Deck. It’s the easiest activation condition out of all the Quick-Play Spells since it requires no cards on the field, so it might be the one you’ll activate to get to a Purrely from the Deck. I kinda wish it only gave you the LP, as I don’t really think it’d be broken. Sure that effect is generic, but so is Dian Keto and I don’t see anyone running it. Either way it’s fine honestly, the main bit is to get your Purrely from the Deck. The second effect on this gives a bonus effect to a Purrely Xyz Monster that has this as material, letting said monster send another card from your field to the graveyard to target and attach a card the opponent controls to your monster as material, which is overall nice removal to have while also keeping Xyz Materials on your monsters so you can keep getting more and more to summon the archetypal boss monsters. A lack of hard once per turns anywhere on this is a nice bonus as well. Pretty Memory might not give protection to your cards similar to the other Memories, but it’s easy to activate since it has no activation condition, and the effect your Purrely Xyzs will inherit from it is probably the best out of all the Memories, so it’s an easy 3-of.
Advanced Rating: 4/5
Art: 4/5 Always keep your Purrelys clean.
Now we look at Epurrely Beauty, a Rank 2 WATER Fairy Xyz with 1600 ATK and 1100 DEF. Stats are fine for a Rank 2, WATER is solid, and Fairy is good. If you were to summon this properly, the materials are any 2 Level 2 monsters, so it is at least generic. With that said, you’re only ever summoning this with the effects of your Purrely cards. The first effect is a soft once per turn, letting you target an Effect Monster the opponent controls and negate its effects for the turn, with this becoming a Quick Effect if it has Purrely Pretty Memory as material. It’ll most likely have said card as material, so Quick Effect negation is pretty good to have, especially without a hard once per turn to make use of multiples at once. The second effect is a Quick Effect you can use up to thrice per turn, letting you attach a Purrely Quick-Play Spell you activate to this card as material, then you can change the battle position of a monster the opponent controls. The key part is gaining materials for more help summoning the boss monsters, though I don’t know if this is the Purrely Xyz you’d summon if you’re trying to summon those, as Epurrely Plump gets materials on itself much faster. Still, a way to load up on materials is good if you need to use this for the bosses of the archetype. Beauty is a solid Xyz for Purrely and probably the Rank 2 you’d summon most if you intend to keep it on the field for its effects long-term. Have a few in your Extra Deck ready to go.
Advanced Rating: 3.5/5
Art: 4.5/5 Reminds me of Vaporeon, my favorite Eeveeloution.
Today features a double whammy of cards to demonstrate the core combo of Purrely, Epurrely Beauty and Purrely Pretty Memory. Purely Pretty Memory is a Quick Play Spell; on activation, both players gain 1000 Life Points, then you can discard one card to Special Summon a level 1 Purrely monster from your deck, an effect that is shared by all Purrely Quick Play Spells. Naturally, the main reason to activate this card is to bring out Purrely, your main playmaker; the 1000 Life Point gain is largely inconsequential, though I’m not a huge fan since it makes OTK a tad bit more difficult (though Purrely certainly has ways to offset it!). Additionally, Pretty Memory has a second effect when it’s attached to a Purrely monster as an Xyz material (courtesy of Purrely) that each of the Purrely Quick Play Spells have. Pretty Memory in particular grants a once per turn effect to send one other card on your field to the Graveyard to target a card your opponent controls and attach it to the Purrely Xyz as an Xyz material. While I wish it was a Quick effect, it’s fine for what it is.
Art: 3.75/5 I’ve never had the misfortune of trying to bathe a cat, but I imagine it’s usually not this peaceful.
Pretty Memory is associated with Epurrely Beauty, a Rank 2 WATER Fairy Xyz monster. WATER Fairy monsters aren’t a combination you see often, and while it does have generic materials of only two level 2 monsters, you generally don’t want to summon Beauty outside of Purrely. While not the best stats for a Rank 2 Xyz, 1600 attack and 100 defense are okay, and all of the Purrely Xyz receive a substantial boost from Purrely Delicious Memory.
Beauty’s unique effect is a soft once per turn, letting you target and negate an opponent’sEffect monster’s effects until the end of the turn. Additionally, if Purrely Pretty Memory is an Xyz material, it’s a Quick Effect, making it a solid negation (though sadly it doesn’t do much against classic hand traps, as it is a field negation). Beauty’s other effect is a lot like the other Rank 2 Purrely monsters, being a thrice per turn Quick effect (expect to see this again soon-ish) that can be triggered if you activate a Purrely Quick Play Spell that attaches said Spell as an Xyz material. Each of the Rank 2 Purrelys has a bonus effect that comes with it; in Beauty’s case, you can change the battle position of one of your opponent’s monsters. This effect is honestly pretty low-impact compared to the other Rank 2s, so you’ll use it mainly for the attach effect. All of the Rank 2 Purrelys are pretty good, so you can’t really go wrong, but Beauty’s negate probably makes it the most ideal one for general usage.
