Hello Pojo Fans,
Proxy F Magician is like a monster version of Poly.
Generic materials benefits all decks that want to Fusion Summon. Having the ability to Fusion without the use of a Fusion card like Poly or Super Poly is great. You do need to use monsters on your field, while other cards allow you to use both hand and field. The Special Summon from the hand is nice if your playing low ATK monsters (1000 or less ATK), but the monsters that fall into this category that are most played are monsters you want to keep in the hand. You need those link points to summon to with this cards effect to get that Special Summon, but unless you are playing monsters that fall in that range you can Fusion Summon anywhere now. That effect can help if you have something like a Tuner in your hand and you really want to summon again but you already committed your Normal Summon. Its effect is good in a pinch, but you are still in need of at least two monsters on the field alongside this monster if you want that Special Summon. Regardless, you can use Proxy F and another monster for a Fusion Summon without something like Poly, and that’s a pretty good effect.
If you Fusion Summon, this may be a card for your Extra Deck. If you run monsters that align with this cards second effect, it may be a sure thing in your Extra Deck. It would have been much better though if the monsters could also be used from the hand for the Fusion Summon.
Until Next Time
Next up we have one of the cooler Links in this set as it allows for some cool combos in Fusion Strategies: Proxy F Magician.
Proxy F is a Link-2 FIRE Cyberse with 1400 ATK and arrows pointing to the two bottom diagonals. Fine ATK on Link-2, FIRE is alright, Cyberse is well supported now, and the arrows are great on any Link-2. The summoning requirements are any 2 Effect Monsters, which is easy to fulfil. Its first effect lets you conduct a Fusion Summon during your Main Phase by using monsters on your field as Fusion Material. No hand as an option, but it helps you make your Fusion plays without drawing a Fusion Spell. It shouldn’t be hard for most Decks to get Fusion Materials on field for Fusions anyways, this can work with Invoked to fuse itself with Aleister to go into Invoked Purgatrio as well, one of the better Invoked Fusions, which then puts Aleister in grave for your Invocation. The second effect is if a Fusion Monster is Fusion Summoned to a zone this card points to, where it can then let you summon a monster with 1000 or less ATK from hand. Pretty cool way to extend combos after you Fusion Summon with its own effect, even with a restriction on the ATK of summoned monsters. You could find a bunch of good options to summon off this for a free body to get some good effects and be used for Extra Deck Material. Each effect here is a hard once per turn, which does seem fitting. Proxy F Magician is a very interesting card overall, one I can see being used in Fusion Strategies. It’s pretty helpful overall.
Advanced Rating: 4/5
Art: 4.25/5 I like the design on the attire of this monster very well, to be honest.
Proxy F Magician is quite an asset for Fusion players (I can only assume F stands for Fusion) Link 2, 1400 attack, Fire/Cyberese (how a Monster named Magician isn’t a Spellcaster and looks like this?) with arrows to the bottom diagonals who needs 2 Effect Monsters for a Link Summon.
First this card lets you perform Fusion during your Main Phase using what you may have on the Field as Material. You can’t use your a Hand but that’s the price for not needing a Fusion Magic card here I suppose. Regardless, it’s still an easier way to drop a Fusion to your Field.
Secondly you can Special Summon a Monster with 1000 attack or less from your Hand if you Fusion Summon to a Zone this card points to. Despite the attack restriction, it’s another free Monster likely to further your Extra Deck plays.
All this can be done on the same turn and you aren’t forbidden from using this card, your Fusion, or the Monster from the latter effect as Extra Deck Material (or as a Tribute or anything else) so while very Fusion oriented, there’s a lot of combo potential here with and without the Extra Deck.
Rating: 4/5 Quite versatile
Art: 4.75/5 Great suit, love the staff, and the appropriate and expected background swirl we know represent fusion is actually not boring. The brightness in it compliments the bold and darker red very well
