If you can pronounce Svartalf's name right,
you're already good with it. This odd
fairy-type-thing-Tuner has a very awkward level at
5, and as a Tuner, and if you waste a summon by
tributing for her, you can add a Nordic to your
hand. Her bad stats keep her from being useful in
battle, and her effect won't work off of a card like
the Fetters of Fenrir.
Because she'll need another 5 non-Tuner
levels--awkward Tuner AND non-Tuner levels--she has
to live on combos. That's just plain not good for
consistency, since many of those combos will revolve
around you already having the pieces in play. Forget
about Loki and focus on a more consistent Nordic
Fun Fact: This thing is a demon elf, or something.
Today's card is Svartalf of the Nordic Alfar.
He's a 5star tuner who's primarily used for Loki,
though he could find a spot in other Nordic decks.
His ability activates when he's normal summoned, you
can pull any Nordic monster from your graveyard to
your hand. Since he's 5 stars, you'll have to
tribute to get his ability, but Nordics, especially
the black and white goats, can special summon
themselves and spew tokens easily enough that having
a tribute shouldn't be a problem. His recycling
ability is nice, but not too useful early game.
Definitely a good card for Loki decks, but other
flavors of Nordic have better support for them.
Art: Reminds me of the lunch lady from Danny
Svartalf of the Nordic Alfar is the outcast
Nordic kid nobody wants to play with. And with good
reason: He doesn't play nice with the other Nordics.
There's a reason Loki doesn't see much play, and
it's this guy. He's a tribute and his stats are
terrible. He sort of works with Dverg and Ljosalf of
the Nordic Alfar, but it's a lot of effort just to
get Loki when the Nordic Beasts can get Thor or Odin
And with the recently announced Mara of the Nordic
Alfar, this card just gets worse.
