Hello Pojo Fans,
Lyrilusc – Assembled Nightingale is the Throwback Thursday choice, though I would’ve thought the Fusion Lyrilusc using Assembled Nightingale would’ve been the choice.
Generic Rank 1 needing 2+ Level 1 monsters, this is generic but run only in the Lyrilusc archetype because of the obvious synergy with their swarming of the field and multiple Level 1 monsters. The more attached the more ATK, though 200ATK has been bested by other Lyrilusc Xyz monsters. Attacking directly is great and combined with the ability to hit for each attached material makes Nightingale a potential OTK card. Without stopping Nightingale, you could be facing down 5000 damage easily. To make these effects worthwhile you need to utilize the swarm ability of this archetype. Protection ability from battle and card effect destruction as well as no battle damage for all Lyrilusc monsters is fantastic all-around coverage for one material. Wagtail detach to protect everyone and reattach to do it again next turn. Quick Effect making sure either turn you can protect your birds.
If you could pump up the ATK of Nightingale then it becomes something to worry about, but it really revolves around getting four or more materials onto it…and in this archetype that isn’t hard.
Until Next Time
We don’t go too far back this week for Throwback Thursday, but that’s usually how it is for newer archetypes. Anyways, here’s Lyrilusc – Assembled Nightingale.
Assembled Nigtingale is a Rank 1 WIND Winged Beast with 0 ATK and DEF. 2 or more Level 1s let you summon this, so completely generic and you can get as many materials as you need on this. Gains 200 ATK for each material attached to it, so 5 should get you all the way to 1000 ATK. Either way, you need as many materials as you can get on this. This card can attack directly and can attack a number of times up to the number of materials it has at the given moment. So 1 material should guarantee 200 damage, 2 guarantees 800, 3 gives you 1800, 4 is 3200, and 5 should go up to 5000. You can see this is a good effect the more materials it has, especially as ZEUS fodder considering how strong he is. This does has protection as well as once per turn as a Quick Effect, you can detach a material from this card to prevent Lyrilusc monsters you control from being destroyed by battle or card effects, also you take no damage. This is protection you’d need on monsters as small as the Lyriluscs considering how good their effects are, yet they’re so fragile in their stats. Effect destruction protection is nice to add on as well, though you’re not completely immune with the protection this gives. Assembled Nightingale can get you some good damage, especially if you summon Recital Starling or use Beryl Canary as material to give this more ATK. Good damage, good protection, and perfect ZEUS material. Even when the latter part becomes irrelevant if ZEUS gets banned, it’s still a decent card.
Advanced Rating: 4/5

As we’ve seen this week, Level/Rank 1 is a key component to these ladies, and Lyrilusc-Assembled Nightingale is our Throwback Thursday card. Rank 1, still Wind/Winged-Beast, and 0 atk/def to start things off. Generic requirement here for XYZ Summon needing 2+ Level 1 Monsters. 200 attack per Material here is silly, but for a plus as I like to mention, it IS easy enough to cycle, reattach, and the like more XYZ Material to your Monsters, so there’s that. Being able to direct attack is always welcome as well, especially if you get an attack per the number of Material attached. So while the attack is going to be low, you can still chip away at your opponent here. Even just two Material (assuming your attacks are successful) is 800 Direct Damage from this Effect. The latter Effect is superb, even though it goes against the first one. It’s a Quick Effect letting you detach a Material to protect your Theme Monsters from being destroyed by Battle AND Card Effects (phenomenal) and you take no Battle Damage. That’s an insane amount of near total protection all for one detached Material.
Art: 5/5 This is a higher 5 than yesterday, all this color is so elegant and just beautiful.
This Throwback Thursday focuses on Lyrilusc’s in-archetype boss, Lyrilusc Assembled Nightingale. As expected of a Lyrilusc monster, it’s a rank 1 WIND winged beast XYZ monster. Though making it is trivial in a pure Lyrilusc deck, it has generic materials, being 2 or more level 1 monsters, so any deck that can spam level 1 monsters without locking itself can make it. It has a horrendous base attack and defense of 0, which causes problems if its effects are negated, but otherwise is balanced out by its effect.
In terms of continuous effects, this monster has several; it gains 200 attack for each material attached to it, it can attack directly, and its maximum number of attacks is equal to the number of attached XYZ material. Additionally, as a quick effect, you can detach an XYZ material to prevent Lyriluscs from being destroyed as well as preventing you from taking any battle damage. The game plan here is pretty obvious; stack as much XYZ material as possible and swing multiple times, hopefully for the win, and protect yourself should you fail. There are some fun cheesy OTK strategies you can do with equip spells, and finagling with Lyrilusc support makes it possible to OTK even without them. However, in a competitive match, you’re most likely going to use the direct attack effect to make the juggernaut that is Divine Arsenal AA-ZEUS Sky Thunder with multiple XYZ material, as the prevalence of non-destructive removal and the difficulty of giving Nightingale a substantial number amount of attack make the OTK strategy unreliable in the modern meta. All in all a pretty good card with both hilarious gimmick applications as well as serious applications.
Art: 3/5 Is it just me or does she kinda look like Meruem from Hunter x Hunter?
