Hello Pojo Fans,

Spright Sprind is now the only Spright Link Monster you got…for now.

Same requirements as Elf, same restriction of using it to link climb the same turn it was Link Summoned. Low ATK you’d expect for a Link 2, Sprind when Link Summoned can Foolish Burial a Level 2 monster. Sprind would work hand-in-hand with Elf, but for now that isn’t possible in the TCG. Of the many Level 2 monsters you can tech into Sprights, there is one that really enjoys being sent to the grave, and it is our Throwback Thursday choice this week, and would net you a +2 if you ran it. Aside from that, Foolish Burial your Spright to activate Spright Smashers would be the only other play I see for using Sprind’s Foolish Burial effect on a Spright.

Detach a material from an Xyz Monster you control to bounce a monster on the field back to the hand. This effect feels like a spot removal using Downerd Magician, ZEUS, or Ominous Soul Sweeper. An Xyz that has multiple materials on it that is being a body on the field would be perfect to spend a material alongside Sprind to get rid of a monster your opponent has. Given, to do this you need to Special Summon a monster while Sprind is on the field. This effect could have been a Quick Effect and made Sprind’s playability stronger when Elf was released alongside it, OR you could use each effect of Spright Sprind once per turn instead of “only one effect once per turn”. Having an Xyz Monster you want to detach from isn’t always available (you won’t be detaching from Gigantic Spright for Sprind) but Sprind does set up its own second effect if you use our Throwback Thursday choice and go stright into an Xyz Summon.

Spright Sprind is all Sprights have now for Link Monsters. It’s not even close to the power Elf had in terms of pushing advantage, but Sprind can get you a good deck thin and then get you to a Link or Xyz Summon. Its limitations are on its effects being restricted to choosing one of the two effects per turn.

Spright just lost Spright Elf, but they aren’t completely left without their own Link Monster since we got a second here in Spright Sprind.

Sprind is a Link-2 FIRE Thunder with 1400 ATK and arrows pointing Upper-Right and Bottom-Left. ATK is pretty middling, arrows are fine, FIRE is okay, and Thunder is decent. The materials are any 2 monsters, including a Level/Rank/Link 2 monster, so designed for Springans. It cannot be used as Link Material the turn it was Link Summoned, just like Elf, but you can at least use it as material for Gigantic Spright. You only get one of the following effects a turn and only once that turn. The first lets you send a Level 2 monster from Deck to grave on Link Summon, giving you some graveyard setup and triggering certain effects to help make your plays. The targets to send mostly aren’t all that insane, especially with Frogs losing Ronintoadin not long ago, and losing Spright Elf makes even less targets viable since you don’t have that instant revive anymore, but it isn’t like there is no way to benefit from this. The second effect triggers if a monster is Special Summoned while this is on the field (except during the Damage Step), letting you detach a material from an Xyz Monster you control to target a monster on the field and destroy it. This effect doesn’t come up too often from what I’ve seen, but I’m sure it’s been nice to have for some players. Sprind is now the only Link for Spright, and it’s a farcry from what Elf was for the Deck. With that said, it’s an alright card letting certain plays be accessible. It helps variants like Tri-Brigade Spright at the very least as well as pure Spright.

People were understandably befuddled when Spright, a tier 0 deck at the time, got new support, but lore marches on! Spright Sprind is another monster for the Spright archetype, a Link 2 FIRE Thunder monster, not unlike Spright Elf. Also not unlike Spright Elf, it only needs two monsters, as long as one of them is level, Rank, or Link 2, so any deck that can field one of those can make Sprind. Curiously, it has bottom left and upper right arrows, which are fine for Link purposes, though a little strange. Finally, it has a middling 1400 attack, but that’s to be expected for a Link 2.

Sprind shares Elf’s inability to be used as Link material the turn it’s Link Summoned, which shuts off Link climbing potential, but of course you can still use it to Xyz Summon Gigantic Spright if you wish. Sprind’s next two effects are a hard once per turn one per turn, though it doesn’t come up too often since the first one is a Link Summon trigger. If it’s Lin Summoned, you can send any level 2 monster from your deck to the Graveyard. There’s a lot of good targets, like Tearlaments Merrli, Plaguespreader Zombie, Tri-Brigade Kitt, or even Quillbolt Hedgehog in fringe builds, but the main target is Nimble Angler, which can flood your board with free bodies (more on that guy tomorrow!). Sprind’s other effect triggers if another monster is Special Summoned while Sprind is on the field, letting you detach an Xyz material from a monster you control to target and return a monster on the field to the hand. This effect essentially turns Gigantic Spright into an disruption, since it doesn’t innately do anything on the opponent’s turn. It also is a major boon to the new boss for the Springan archetype, but we’ll get to that in our Photon Hypernova coverage. With the banning of Spright Elf, Spright decks have to clutch even harder on Sprind, which is still an excellent combo tool and disruption. It’s not as abusable as Elf, but it’s definitely a consideration if your deck fields level 2 monsters and has a level 2 monster it wants to Foolish.
