Hello Pojo Fans,
Mementotlan Angwitch is a step up from Mace, but also can work alongside it.
Another search ability from a smaller monster in the archetype, Angwitch is strictly your monster searcher. If you wanted to get another Spell/Trap or another monster search, you can use Angwitch’s second effect and pop itself (or another Mementolan) and Special Summon a Level 2 or lower Memento from your graveyard. You’d go for Mace if you wanted the search, but you also have Goblin as a Special Summon option, and Goblin can be a double Foolish Burial for Mementolan monsters by trading itself or another Mementolan monster, which would then give you presumably four different Mementolan monsters in the grave, setting up your big boss monster: Mementoal Tecuhtlica – Combined Creation, quite nicely.
The smaller the monster, the more likely it is going to be used to speed through this archetype rather than contribute to Extra Deck Special Summons for attacking monsters. You have a few beaters in the Deck, but lets be honest, you want that big bad on the field as quickly as possible.

Until Next Time,
It’s weird to have the retrain of a monster before the actual monster itself, but one day TCG might import the rest of the old OCG vanillas. Anyways, here’s Mementotlan Angwitch.
Angwitch is a Level 3 DARK Spellcaster with 800 ATK and 1000 DEF. Bad stats, but a good Type/Attribute. Anyways, on Normal or Special Summon you get to search for any Memento monster from the Deck besides Angwitch. It does help get your Memento plays going or to have cards in hand for defense. You can get the hand-trap effects of Mace or Goblin, or grab Tatssunootoshigo to Special Summon and help get more Memento monsters in the graveyard as fuel to summon your boss monster. The other effect lets you target a Level 2 or lower Memento monster in your grave to destroy a Memento monster you control and revive whatever you targeted in grave, letting you target things like Mace to search any Memento card, Goblin to get 2 more Memento cards in grave, or Attic Ghost to add a Memento from grave to hand. Hard once per turn on each effect, of course. Angwitch is another Memento to help get your combos going, and the search doesn’t require you to leave the field empty, letting you Special Summon your big Mementos like Tatsunootoshigo, or destroy this and get more Mementos in grave for Horned Dragon. Another 3-of for the Deck.
Advanced Rating: 3.75/5
Art: 4.5/5 Angwitch waiting room starts now for the TCG I guess.
Not a sandwich, an Angwitch! Mementotlan Angwitch continues our Mementotlan coverage, a level 3 DARK Spellcaster monster based on Fairywitch. While DARK Spellcasters enjoy a decent amount of support, it doesn’t help Angwitch much considering the lack of DARK Spellcasters among the other Mementos, and it isn’t high enough of a level to qualify as a target for Magicians’ Souls either. Angwitch copies Fairywitch’s stat spread for an underwhelming 800 attack and 1000 defense, so keep it away from the Battle Phase.
Angwitch has two hard once per turn effects, the first triggering if it’s Normal or Special Summoned to let you search any Memento monster except itself. It’s a straightforward Stratos search, and since Tatsunootoshigo mercifully doesn’t count Memento monsters, you can still summon it, so Angwitch is yet another way to access Tatsunootoshigo. Otherwise, if you already opened Tatsunootoshigo, you’ll probably want to search Mementoal Tecuhtlica if you can’t mill it with Mementotlan Goblin. Angwitch’s other effect lets you destroy a Memento monster you control (which can include itself) to revive a level 2 or lower Memento monster. This effect will let you access Mementotlan Mace or Goblin after they’ve been milled, both of which have important combo effects. There’s not much to complain about with Angwitch; max out on it just like Mace.
