Hello Pojo Fans,
Libromancer Fire begins the Libromancer focus on CoTD. I remember reviewing Geek Boy what feels like a long time ago, now we get to look at the full archetype.
Solid Level 4 Cyberse monster, Fire is a Libromancer monster searcher for the archetype, as well as a good extender when you mix in the Ritual Monsters. Needing only a Ritual Monster to reveal to Special Summon a good Level 4 is pretty easy to come by when the deck has four Ritual Monsters in their archetype. This is the case for Special Summoning any of the Libromancer Main Deck monsters that aren’t Ritual Monsters. A simple Preparation of Ritues will get you what you need for your free summon and then you can get any Libromancer monster you want. Likely searching a non Ritual if you already have one in your hand, but that won’t always be the case. Getting a non-Ritual Monsters means another Special Summon. Geek Boy will get you to any Libromancer Spell/Trap (likely the Field Spell) and Magigirl could set up a Ritual Summon on your opponent’s turn. There aren’t any Libromancer Ritual Monsters that would wreck your opponent’s field by being summoned during their turn, but you can get an indestructible monster in terms of battle protection, or one immune to card effect destruction.
Good attacker for the archetype in terms of regular damage. Has the same Special Summon mechanic, which is good, and can get you a Libromancer monster off its Special Summon to extend into a Ritual Summon or Link Summon. Libromancer Fire alongside Geek Boy will get you your Ritual Monster, and it won’t even cost you your Normal Summon.
Until Next Time
Libromancers return this week with the last wave of support before the OCG gets it and we start with another consistency piece for the archetype: Libromancer Fire.
Libromancer Fire is a Level 4 FIRE Cyberse with 1800 ATK and DEF. Overall fine stats and a nice combo of FIRE and Cyberse. First effect lets you Special Summon this from the hand by revealing a Ritual Monster, so super easy to get this out without the Normal Summon. You don’t want to Normal Summon it anyways, since on Special Summon it searches for a Libromancer monster that isn’t Fire, so get you to the Ritual Monsters you need or get to Geek Boy to search for options to summon your Ritual Monsters while also getting the Levels for bigger Rituals. Hard once per turn on each effect. Fire is alright for Libromancers, it isn’t as easy to Special Summon as Geek Boy since he’s a Level 3 Psychic, but more ways to get to the monsters is nice.
Advanced Rating: 3.5/5
Art: 4/5 Who needs weapons when you can use your fists?
Libromancers come to the scene this week on CotD and Fire is first up. Level 4, Cyberese/Fire, 1800 atk is good for Level 4 (and 1000 def). This is a simple, yet effective card. Revealing a Ritual in your Hand, which is meaningless as that Ritual is likely dropping to your Field that Turn anyway. But said reveal nets you a Special Summon of this from the Hand, and a free Special Summon is always welcome. You’re also allowed to add a Theme Monster, excluding itself, naturally, from your Deck to your Hand, at Once per Turn (as is the first Effect). This guy is solid. Nice attack, easy to drop, and a free +1 in Theme Monster form potentially every Turn.
Art: 4/5 also… like the aesthetic here more than the art on the character, though that hair screams anime.
