Hello Pojo Fans,

Rindbrumm the Striking Dragon begins the week on Pojo and is the weapon used to help take down Aluber for the time being.

Another Fallen of Albaz Fusion target, this one requiring our favorite dragon boy and something likely belonging to the Tri-Brigades: 1 Beast, Beast-Warrior, or Winged Beast monster. Not that you have to use Tri-Brigades with Albaz, but they go hand-in-hand within the lore and support. In reality, this cards has found itself in Despia-centered decks using only Springans Kitt and Tri-Brigade Mercourier as potential targets in the Main Deck. Negation power on either turn again Extra Deck monsters combined with a Compulsory Evacuation Device effect, a double-whammy despite it not destroying what it is negating. Good stats make it a respectable attacking monster.

While in the grave Rindbrumm can bring itself back on your opponent’s turn or summon a Fallen of Albaz from your grave. You have to banish the one you don’t choose to summon, but that is a marginal cost. This effect can only happen though if you have both in the grave, so grave removal like D.D. Crow would put an end to that. You would only summon Albaz if you had the discard for his Super Poly-style effect. Even if your opponent doesn’t currently have an Extra Deck monster for you to negate an effect with this card you are likely going to see one and with this cards 2500ATK it stands a better shot of sitting on the field than Albaz.

Good Fusion Monster for any deck that uses Fallen of Albaz as a monster in the Main Deck. If you can make a Beast, Beast-Warrior, or Winged Beast out of your Extra Deck or run a few in the Deck you will be able to run this card (Branded Fusion helps this a lot). Play that Fusion Spell turn one, double Foolish Burial of your target and Albaz, summon Rindbrumm and pass.

We go deeper into the Albaz lore and see what Kitt is up to, as she has seemingly created Rindbrumm the Striking Dragon.

Rindbrumm is a Level 8 DARK Winged Beast with 2500 ATK and 2000 DEF. Stats are fine overall, DARK is great, and Winged Beast has good support. Materials are Fallen of Albaz and any Beast, Beast-Warrior, or Winged Beast monster, so an Albaz Fusion that’s especially for Tri-Brigade. First effect is a Quick Effect when a Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, or Link Monster activates their effect, letting you negate that effect then return a monster on the field to the hand. It’s good negation for Extra Deck bosses mainly, and the bounce is nice if you don’t care if said monster stays on the field and you rather get rid of something else. The second effect is another Quick Effect on the opponent’s turn when you got both this and Fallen of Albaz in the graveyard, letting you revive one and banish the other. Mainly this is good to revive your Fallen of Albaz in order to fuse with the opponent’s monsters and get rid of another threat, though you could revive this if the negation would be useful and you got more Fallen of Albaz copies to spare. Hard once per turn on each effect, cause of course, but this is overall a nice Fusion. The Branded Despia strategy could technically use Tri-Brigade Mercourier as the material, and this does let you run Albaz in Beast/Beast-Warrior/Winged Beast heavy strategies if you want. Overall a cool Fusion worth playing in several different variations of Albaz and friends.

Advanced Rating: 4/5

Art: 4/5 Oh Kitt is up to no good again. I just don’t know how this is a Winged Beast instead of either a Machine or Dragon.

Our Photon Hypernova coverage continues this week with more Albaz lore cards. Rindbrumm the Striking Dragon is another Fusion for Albaz’s toolbox, a level 8 DARK Winged Beast Fusion monster. As the second Tri-Brigade Albaz Fusion, it’ll take Albaz and any Winged Beast, Beast, or Beast-Warrior monster, which makes Tri-Brigade Mercourier and Springans Kitt prime targets as Fusion Material. Like most Albaz Fusions, it has a stat spread of 2500 attack and 2000 defense, which aren’t amazing stats, but decent enough for how easy it is to summon.

Strangely, Rindbrumm has two hard once per turn effects and both of them are Quick Effects, which you don’t see too often. The first effect lets you negate the activation of a Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, or Link monster’s effect, then bounce a monster on the field back to the hand. In addition to being a solid negate, non-targeting bounces can be useful for eliminating troublesome monsters, though being tied to the negate means it can be easily baited. Rinbrumm’s other effect can only be activated during your opponent’s turn while it’s in the Graveyard, targeting a Fallen of Albaz in your Graveyard and either Special Summoning it and banishing Rindbrumm, or the opposite, banishing Rindbrumm to summon Albaz. Obviously, depending on whether you get more mileage out of Rindbrumm’s negate or Albaz’s Fusion, you’ll pick one or the other, but both provide disruption either way. Note that you still can’t cheat Rindbrumm from the Graveyard if you sent it with, say, Albion the Branded Dragon, but at least you can still summon Albaz. While it’s not the strongest Albaz Fusion, it’s definitely an option especially if your build makes heavy use of Tri-Brigade Mercourier.

Advanced: 3.5/5

Art: 4.25/5 First Dracossack, the Blue-Eyes Jet, and now this, seems dragon-shaped aircraft are a recurring theme in Yugioh.
