Noble Arms-Arfeudutyr
- #ABYR-EN086

You can only control 1 face-up "Noble Arms - Arfeudutyr". Equip only to a Warrior-Type monster. Once per turn: You can target 1 Set card your opponent controls; the equipped monster permanently loses 500 ATK, and if it does, destroy that target. (The ATK loss remains even if this card leaves the field or the monster becomes unaffected by card effects.) If this face-up card on the field is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 face-up Warrior-Type "Noble Knight" monster you control; equip this card to that target. You can only use this effect of "Noble Arms - Arfeudutyr" once per turn.

Noble Arms-Arfeudutyr, one of the many Noble Arms Equip cards out there, and this is one of the worst. You can only control one of these and it can only be equipped to a Warrior Monster. That Monster loses 500 attack permanently, even if this card leaves the Field, or is unaffected by Monster effects. It does let you select a set card your opponent controls and destroy it, but there's more effective ways to go about this, without a permanent attack drop. If this face-up card is destroyed, you can equip it to another face-up Warrior, Noble Knight you control. This is junk, and not even fun junk.

Every Knight has to have a sword so today we are going to review the sword Noble Arms – Arfeudutyr. Besides giving your Noble Knight its own effect, you also gain the effect to destroy one set card your opponent controls, monster, spell, or trap. Just remember that that card has to still be set on resolution and your monster will need to be able to loose 500 attack points.
Let’s take a look at a play from yesterday’s card of the day and add this card into the mix. Summon Noble Knight Medraut or special summon it with Summoner Monk. Attach Arfeudutyr to it and use its effect to destroy one of your opponent’s face down cards. Use Medraut to special summon Gwalchavad and re-attach Arfeudutyr to it. Then use Gwalchavad to get Gawayn to your hand from the grave and then summon it to the field. With two or three cards in you hand, you have gained three to four monsters on the field and destroyed a set card of your opponents giving you a plus 2 advantage.
While having the initial ability to summon an Xyz monster or two is really great, the consistency of a dependant deck is not worth it. The other problem that Noble Arms – Arfeudutyr has is that it has to destroy face down cards in a format that does not set cards and if it does, it is for chainable cards like Compulsory Evacuation Device or any number of Continuous “Drain” cards.

Hey guys today we're going to be doing Noble Arms - Arfeudutyr which is an amazing card for the archetype may I add. While once per turn you can destroy a set card by subtracting 500 atk per turn is pretty good. Lets add the fact that you can use it multiple times providing the card is still on board next turn. I really like that also when it's destroyed you equip it to another warrior which allows for easy xyz plays without losing any card advantage. Overall pretty good card, but this Archetype needs a lot more support.

Noble Knight monsters (not counting Joan) are based off one of the Knights of the Round Table, and all of the currently released Noble Arms are meant to be their swords (thankfully you can equip them to any Noble Knight you want; if you could only equip them to the same Knight, that would be horrible!). The Noble Arms are a series of Equip Cards; at the time of this publication, there are four, and it is reasonable that more will be made. They can only be equipped to Warrior monsters, and if these get destroyed, they can be picked up again by a Noble Knight. Equip Spells are normally shunned as they tend to get minimal benefit but are so easily destroyed; the recyclable factor of the Noble Arms make them a lot more playable.
This card may be the worst of the four Noble Arms, as it fails to give a distinct advantage to the equipped monster; if anything, it hurts them 500 ATK and it won’t come back even if this card gets destroyed! That being said, I do admit it has viability in the way it gets to destroy opposing set cards, whether they be valuable Traps or potentially harmful Flip Effects (or maybe just a simple defending monster that can prevent you from dealing good battle damage). Noble Knight Laundsallyn or Arms Hole can nab this from the deck easily just like any other Noble Arms, and this type of dependability is extremely useful, especially considering no other Noble Arms has an effect to destroy other cards. Equip it onto Gwalchavad or Medraut and sacrifice 500 ATK to blow up a card. Use the monster’s effect to destroy the Equip Card, allowing you to re-equip it onto that same Knight or to pass it on to another. Either way, sacrifice another 500 ATK to blow up a second card. Even though you’re giving up a lot of ATK, it doesn’t matter, because you are sacrificing the ATK of Level 4 monsters to clear out potentially dangerous traps in order to use up your monsters to Xyz Summon Blade Armour Ninja to swing in for 4400 points of damage! Heroic Champion – Excalibur is also capable of doing high damage, but is a more careful play. Noble Knights are also capable of playing Starliege Paladynamo, which is designed to help remove troublesome monsters. Finally, you can go into the Noble Knights’ very own King Artorigus, which can be hard to stop if he has all four Noble Arms on him. However, it is precious to conserve Artorigus’ ATK; you’ll want to use his effect to destroy cards to destroy this card, so that he can pass it off for different Noble Knight and use THAT ONE’s ATK to activate this card. You can sacrifice other Noble Knights’ ATK to help clear off set monsters (Artorigius’ own effect can help eliminate Traps) so that Artorigus can get some good Direct Attacks in, and if the monster with Arfeudutyr gets destroyed, Artorigus can just pick it up again and pass it on to someone else. One thing to note is that you can equip this card to your opponent’s Black Luster Soldier (or any other enemy Warrior, if they have them) to drop THEIR ATK to destroy THEIR OWN cards. You won’t always get the chance to do this, and even if you can it might not always be helpful, but it’s good to know these kinds of tricks if it’s the only thing that will save your skin.
In spite of all this, the most important thing about Arfeudutyr is its ability to activate Noble Knight effects and its recycle capability, like the other Noble Arms. If you don’t have Noble Knights, use Nobleman of Crossout or Mystical Space Typhoon for reliable destruction. (I do admit it’s interesting to see this being used outside of Noble Knights as a flexible one-time monster-or-Trap destruction before you use up the Equipped monster for Synchro or Xyz, but I bet it usually won’t be worth it, especially since it’s uncommon to set monsters now.)
Trad: 1/5 (lol you should use Harpie’s Feather Duster and Nobles aren’t even that good)
Adv: 2.3/5 (most top decks don’t use Traps anymore, and if they do, they’re chainable; most top decks don’t set monsters, and if they do, they’re meant to be destroyed; nevertheless, in a Noble Deck this can be helpful, but mostly because we don’t have that many Noble Arms to pick from and you can only have out one of each)
Aesthetics: 4.5/5 Arfeudutyr represents sword of Noble Knight Laundsallyn, who is based off Sir Lancelot du Lac, who is famous for being King Arthur’s best knight, falling in love with the queen, and searching for the Holy Grail. In a lot of fictional depictions of Lancelot (usually in Japanese video games), his sword is called “Arondight” (which is this card’s Japanese name) and “Arfeudutyr” would be the Welsh pronunciation. The crescent moon and the black sky certainly give a dark mood to this card. Also the round shape the sword is stuck through KINDA looks like a heart, which ties in how he fell in love with the queen, but it would look better if it had the cusp on the top was more pronounced.
