Hello Pojo Fans,

Mementotlan Twin Dragon ends the week on Pojo and might run into looking into the archetype again next week…we shall see.

The only Fusion Monster in the archetype so far to go alongside Mementotlan Fusion, Mementotlan Twin Dragon only needs two Memento monsters you possess, simple. Twin Dragon imbues your Memento monsters with a DMoC battle ability, banishing anything they destroy in battle. Taking away access to monsters your opponent has cuts of the graveyard being a reliable resource, as well as avoids any destruction triggered abilities.

When you Fusion Summon Twin Dragon, you can trade a Memento for two other Memento monsters from the Deck. They all have to be different names, so no searching out the other two copies of a monster. Trading copies of Memento monsters you already have for different ones will get you quicker to being able to summon Combined Creation, but in a more practical way, you can swap out monsters for whatever situation you may be in. In any case it is a +1 in your favor. Special Summon ability for any Level 6 or lower Memento upon destruction is a good trade when losing Twin Dragon, though none of the Level 6 or lower Memento monsters pack anything to show in regards to ATK. You can trade Twin Dragon to search two and then Special Summon Mementolan Ghattic if it is in the grave to get back your Memento Fusion to set up another Twin Dragon next turn.

Mementotlan Twin Dragon will get better when the next bit of Memento support comes out in Infinite Forbidden when Mementotlan Mystical Sheep and another Fusion Monster are released. As of right now it is good at adding some speed to the deck, especially with all the Attributes making potential draw power difficult. Get to Fusion Summoning Twin Dragon if you want Combined Creation on the field fast.

Memento finally starts to explore it’s Extra Deck as we have one of the now two Fusions for the archetype: Mementotlan Twin Dragon.

Twin Dragon is a Level 7 LIGHT Thunder Fusion with 2800 ATK and 2100 DEF. Strong stats, LIGHT is good, and Thunder is nice. Fusion Materials are any 2 Memento monsters, which gives you ton of room for options to Fusion Summon this. Any monster destroyed in battle with a Memento is banished, which is a solid effect to make the opponent’s monsters harder to get back to. The remaining effects are each a hard once per turn, first triggering if Fusion Summoned to destroy a Memento monster in your hand or face-up field to search for any 2 Memento monsters with different names from your Deck, so trading 1 card for 2, and this can be free to summon thanks to the archetype’s Fusion Spell. It gets you to any 2 monsters you might need for your combos still, or setup for the next turn if you need. Final effect triggers if this Fusion Summoned card is destroyed, reviving any Level 6 or lower Memento from the graveyard, replacing itself and being able to trigger off its own previous effect. Twin Dragon is a good Fusion for the Deck if they were going to get any. It’s a consistency boost, and Fusion Summoning it is not hard at all. You can run a few in the Memento Extra Deck just to have more copies to keep shuffling back into the Extra Deck to summon your boss monster or keep doing Fusion Summons.

Rather depressingly, this card was revealed in the OCG right after I finished my initial Memento reviews, but now we have foresight! Finishing the week is Memento’s first (but not the last) Fusion monster, Mementotlan Twin Dragon, which, like its namesake, is a level 7 LIGHT Thunder Fusion monster. It’ll take any two Memento monsters, so you can make it fairly easily with the new Mementotlan Fusion, which lets you use Graveyard materials if any of your monsters was destroyed by card effect (IE, basically anything your Memento monsters do). Also like Twin-Headed Thunder Dragon, Twin Dragon has a decent stat spread of 2800 attack and 2100 defense, which is oddly high for a combo piece.

While it’s on the field, monsters destroyed by battle with your Memento monsters are banished. It won’t come up very often, but it can cheese certain rare decks that rely on their monsters being destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard like Ojama (I don’t think I have to explain why this isn’t a huge deal). Twin Dragon’s other two effects are both hard once per turn; the first triggers if it’s Fusion Summoned, letting you destroy a Memento monster on your field or in your hand to search up to two Memento monsters with different names. A lot of combo lines can destroy a Memento in hand, though there’s nothing wrong with destroying Twin Dragon itself, which leads to its other effect that triggers if it’s destroyed while Fusion Summoned, letting you revive a level 6 or lower Memento monster from the Graveyard. It’s not hard to see the combo applications here, since your Graveyard will likely be loaded up with Memento names to summon Mementotlan Horned Dragon and Mementoal Tecuhtlica – Combined Creation. The revival also helps Link climb, since getting your Memento monsters in the Graveyard is effectively free value when it comes to summoning Tecuhtlica. The combo lines are too flexible to list out, but it’s one of those things you’ll get a feel for; my only gripe is that Twin Dragon can’t directly search backrow, which are the bread and butter of Memento’s disruption, but I can’t complain about a double ROTA!

+Effects grant incredible value and advantage
+Fairly easy to make
-Doesn’t directly search backrow
-First effect and stats are wasted on a combo piece

Advanced: 3.75/5
Art: 4.25/5 Honestly I wouldn’t have been able to tell it had a second mouth if I didn’t know about Twin-Headed Thunder Dragon, but I love the color choice.
