Hello Pojo Fans,
Madolche Teacher Glassouffle is another Rank 4 Madolche, and some more support that could have been better years ago.
Madolche-specific (obviously), protection from any monster effect for any Madolche, even herself. I like the self-protection as it is sometimes ignored. Being a quick effect is also good. Teacher applying the shuffling back to the deck effect for any card in the graveyard is a great way to recycle spell/trap or monsters you tech in that aren’t archetype specific. Total protection would’ve been nice, but monster effect protection is still pretty good. Any Madolche card going to the grave will trigger her cycle-back effect, keeping your spells and hand traps available to you.
This monster was needed a long time ago and who knows how good Madolche would’ve been had she came out at the same time we were getting all the support for the archetype.
Until Next Time
Eh. Madolche Teacher Glassouffle is a Rank 4 Earth Fairy-type XYZ Monster with 1800 Atk and 2500 Def. New support is usually good, but the stats are not exactly right. She also requires 2 Level 4 Madolche monsters, and there are better generic Rank 4 XYZ Monsters. Then the first Quick Effect is a hard once per turn that only grants protection from monster effects to one Madolche monster while its face up at the cost of detaching one material. If she protected all Madolche monsters, there might be something, but just one for the turn isn’t really good enough. At least the detach of a Madolche monster will trigger the second effect. If a Madolche card is sent to the grave you can shuffle any 2 cards from either grave back to the deck once per turn. That’s a nice replenishment effect if the Field Spell is up, but Madolche Teacher GLassouffle needs to be face up when all of that goes down. No real offensive pressure, some interesting protection, and some recycling of resources don’t add up to something too great. She looks a little too old to still be indulging in sweets. The students have become the masters here.
Score: 3.25/5 Art: 2.5/5
New Madolche support always makes me happy, and this new support piece gives the archetype something decent to do on the first turn, Madolche Teacher Glassouffle.
Glassouffle is a Rank 4 EARTH Fairy with 1800 ATK and 2500 DEF. Bulky DEF makes up for meh ATK, EARTH is ok, and Fairy is useful in Madolche. The summoning requirements are any 2 Level 4 Madolche monsters, which is easy in Madolche of course since Tiaramisu is still so good. She has a Quick Effect where you can detach a material from this card to target a Madolche you control and have it be unaffected by other monster effects for the turn, excluding its own of course. Any protection is nice protection, and it isn’t overpowered protection for the ease of effort it takes to even summon this thing. Monster effects are probably the best thing to be safe with as well. Glassouffle also has an effect where if a Madolche monster is sent to your graveyard while you control this card, you can shuffle up to 2 cards in the graveyards into their owner’s decks. Combo this with Chateau and you can add back the monsters you targeted back to your hand, and she doesn’t have to target Madolche monsters meaning you can get back hand traps with this if you have Chateau. It’s easy to send a Madolche to the grave as well with Link Summoning and detaching Xyz Material. Each effect of this card are hard once per turns, which I’m sure you’d expect that by now. Glassouffle is something Madolche needed for a long time, it isn’t the strongest turn 1 play, but it makes going first not that bad anymore.
Advanced Rating: 4/5
Art: 4.5/5 A sweet old lady, pun intended.
The Madolches are such a fun, cute little group. Madolche Teacher Glassouffle (not their best pun namee) is a Rank 4, Earth, Fairy XYZ Monster, who needs any two Madolche Monsters for an XYZ Summon. She has 1800 attack and 2500 defense. The first effect here is a Quick one, and very nice for the theme. Detaching a Material from herself lets you Target a face-up theme Monster (oddly it doesn’t have to be yours).
Said Monster is then protected from all Monster effects (outside its own) for the duration of the turn. Protection is always welcome, that’s a great way to protect a Monster, even just for a turn. Secondly, if a theme card is sent to your Graveyard while you control Glassouffle, you can shuffle two cards from the Graveyard(s) back into the Deck(s). Both effects are once per turn.
This second effect is one too, and useful to assist yourself, while also potentially disrupting your opponent’s Graveyard. There’s no guarantee you (or your opponent) will see what you cycle back into the Deck(s) but it’s never a bad thing to bring resources back, even if it’s just to be potentially used again. The attack isn’t great, but she can sit on that 2500 defense for a while. I like her.
Art: 4/5 Definitely an elder, and I feel they put more art effort into the food and background then her. But she seems happy and content, though I’m not liking the color of her hair/that dress.
