Madolche Hootcake is very solid support for an Archtype still trying to take off. The Madoloche theme strikes me sort of similar to Elemental Heroes. An overwhelming amount of support, just very little of it being worthwhile. We have a Level 3, Earth attributed, Beast Monster, with 1500 attack and 1100 defense.

When this card is destroyed by your opponent, by Battle or by card effect, (although note that it has to be in your possession) and sent to the Graveyard, you can shuffle this owl back into your Deck. Then, you can target a Monster in your Graveyard and remove it from play.

Note too, and this is key, for this effect, it doesn't have to be a Madolche Monster. Any Monster can be used for this part of the effect. If you do, you can Special Summon any Madolche Monster from your Deck, present company excluded of course. You can only use the effect once per turn.

Madolche needs more support like this, desperately. Keep it coming

Madolche decks get a power-up with today’s card. Madolche Hootcake does some pretty nice things for Madolche decks. First, it functions like a Tour guide, but for Madolche monsters. It is a level 3 monster so you can special summon a monster like Baaple, use it’s effect to turn your opponent’s monster to defense, special summon Leviar, and then use its effect to special summon the monster you removed from play for Hootcake’s effect.

The issue with Madolche Hootcake is that it is a level 3 monster and Madolche decks would rather have level 4 monsters on the field to special summon their boss monster, Madolche Queen Tiaramisu. However, Madolches also like to get effects when they are special summoned so monsters like Madolche Messengelato will get their effects. Oh yes, Hootcake is also a Beast by the way. Another nice monster to get with Hootcake is Madolche Puddingcess so you can take care of those pesky cards that are being a hindrance to you.

Madolche decks have yet to crack to top tier. Even with Madolche Hootcake, they will need a lot more help to compete with the likes of Marlantean, Spellbook, and E-Dragons. Madolche decks take too long to set up while the above decks can beet you down in the matter of two turns. At least this food group has not been forgotten.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2.5/5

Number 8 is indeed a wise old owl. Madolche Hootcake does more than try to tell you how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie pop, as his effect can cause a lot of headaches. A level 3, EARTH/Beast-type (Y U NO WINGED BEAST?) with 1500/1100 for ATK/DEF, and it gets all the goodies that comes with being a Beast-type, but all the Madolche stuff as well. Hootcake is really good at being able to replace itself from almost everywhere, as if it is destroyed while he's in your hand or if you control him on the field, when he hits the grave after that, You can shuffle him back into the deck, then target 1 monster in your grave and banish it. If you do that, you can special summon 1 Madolche monster from your deck except Hootcake. This card is really good and gives the Madolche deck a lot more speed to its summoning, and its banishing of a monster doesn't restrict it to just Madolches. You can get out Leviair and get back that banished monster, or special summon Puddingcess to get that ATK boost. Or there's Messegelato and its ability to get Maldoche cards....Spell/Trap or Monster, otherwise. A great card for a good deck type.

Welcome to our #8 card of the Lord of Tachyon Galaxy Countdown! Today we are looking at one of the over-powered support cards we have seen in a long time for an newer archetype. In fact, because of this one card, it makes the deck incredibly powerful! Lets take a look at Madolche Hootcake!

Madolche Hootcake
Level 3/ EARTH/ Beast

When this card in your possession is destroyed by your opponent's card (either by battle or by card effect) and sent to your Graveyard: Shuffle this card into the Deck. You can target 1 monster in your Graveyard; banish it, and if you do, Special Summon 1 "Madolche" monster from your Deck, except "Madolche Hootcake". You can only use this effect of "Madolche Hootcake" once per turn.

1500/1100

Madolche... its a very interesting archetype. However, the entire deck received a major power boost thanks to this one card, though it is to be expected from this set. Lord of Tachyon Galaxy brought support to constant deck themes through many of the cards in this set; but Hootcake is definitely one of the most powerful. The effect is quite simple; banish a monster from your grave and summon a Madolche from your deck. In many ways, its a themed Tour Guide for the Madolches; except that it can bring some incredibly powerful plays for the deck.

For example, summon Messengelato with this card for a free madolche spell or trap search search (coughCastlecough) and thus getting a plus 2 off the effect. You could also summon this with Mewfeuille, banish a monster to summon Messengelato, searching Ticket, xyz summon your two level 3's into M-X-Saber Invoker, detatch one to summon another Messengelato from deck, then go into The Queen. Play your Ticket, detatch one from Queen to target your detatched and the material from Invoker to return 2 of your opponent's cards to the deck and then search a Madolche off of Ticket.

That's a two card combo by the way that leads to a +3! (took two cards from your hand [-2], you get two from the summoned Gelato from deck and the ticket and you return two cards your opponent controls back to the deck and searched off of Queen's effect toward Ticket [+5])

Its great support for the Madolche deck for sure. It also leads toward Synchro based builds in order to fill the grave with Hootcake with Targets, as you never have Madolches in grave, and allows access into the powerful Naturia synchros with engines like the Teleport engine.

Advanced: 4.0

Its powerful archetype support. Sadly, Madolches are simply out paced right now. Hopefully they, along with the many other decks supported from this set, get their chance to shine in the future

Traditional: 3.0

Its a Plus machine. I am sure there are possibilities here.

Alright!! Today we are talking about another fantastic card from Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy. It is so good it is in the number 8 spot on the Top Ten List. This card gives Madolche decks a huge boost and makes them pretty competitive. It also has “cake” in its name so you know it’s got to be good! So let’s see if there are any other reasons to play this card.

Madolche Hootcake
Attribute: Earth
Types: Beast/Effect
Level 3
When this card in your possession is destroyed by your opponent's card (either by battle or by card effect) and sent to your Graveyard: Shuffle this card into the Deck. You can target 1 monster in your Graveyard; banish it, and if you do, Special Summon 1 "Madolche" monster from your Deck, except "Madolche Hootcake". You can only use this effect of "Madolche Hootcake" once per turn.
ATK/1500 DEF/1100

This card has really decent stats but it becomes a 2000 attack beater when Madolche Chateau is on the field. Now what really makes this card so good is its effect. It can special summon monsters from your deck by just removing a Madolche monster from your grave. This means you can make powerful plays by special summoning cards like the Madolche Puddingcess, Messengalato, or another level 3 Madolche monster. Also if you special summon another level 3 monster with this card’s effect you can overlay into X- Saber Invoker and continue your combos. I really don’t see many downsides to using this card in Madolches. The only time it is bad is when you don’t have a Madolche monster in the grave but that isn’t too bad.

Advanced: 4.25/5
-This card is really good and the only things that would make it better is if it could special summon more Hootcakes and/or use its effect more than once per turn.

Traditional: 3/5
-I probably wouldn’t run Madolche in this format but if you do this card is probably a must.

Art: 5/5
This card’s art is pretty great but it is a bit weird that this monster is not a winged-beast monster.

Today's Card of the Day is Number #8 of the Top 10 Cards of Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy.

And we are going to visit a card that will no doubt boost an underrated archetype: Madolches! That card happens to be the Level 3 Beast-type monster, Madolche Hootcake.

This card is actually pretty big for the deck for a lot of reasons. It helps out with the deck's lack of speed, makes Madolche Puddingcess more playable, all while adding extra dimensions for the deck.

Before we go any further, let's cover the card's stats:

Level 3/Beast/EARTH/Effect/1500 ATK/1100 DEF
When this card in your possession is destroyed by your opponent's card (either by battle or by card effect) and sent to your Graveyard: Shuffle this card into the Deck. You can target 1 monster in your Graveyard; banish it, and if you do, Special Summon 1 "Madolche" monster from your Deck, except "Madolche Hootcake". You can only use this effect of "Madolche Hootcake" once per turn.

This is a Beast with 1500 ATK so Giant Rat can actually tutor this card from your deck, even though I'm sure you don't have to do that if you don't want to. However, if you do, you do get a Giant Rat in your Graveyard, which is great. Why is that important? I will explain in a little bit.

First of all, Hotocake gets the generic Madolche ability that if it gets destroyed by any means, it goes back into your deck, keeping your Graveyard nice and clean. As for its ability, it's sounds a bit counterproductive since you have to banish a monster in your Graveyard to use its ability but you also have to keep in mind that it says ANY monster, not just Madolche monsters. With that said, you can banish a used-up Effect Veiler, Maxx "C", the previously-mentioned Giant Rat, or our new Dragon Ruler, Redox. What makes Redox special in this case is that it does trigger its effect allowing you to search for another Redox from your deck.

Anyway, once you banish a monster, you get to Special Summon a Madolche monster from your deck. That's quite the deal. You can Special Summon Madolche Mewfeuille, a Level 3 monster, and make a Rank 3 Xyz Summon. Special Summon Madolche Messengelato and, since Madolche Hootcake is a Beast-Type monster, search your deck for a Madolche Spell or Trap. Lastly, you can Special Summon Madolche Puddingcess, the initial boss monster of the archetype, making the card a lot easier to use.

Overall, this card is really the backbone of the deck making the cards actually work in a solid deck. If you do play Madolches, definitely get your Hootcakes.

Traditional Format: 1/5 (I'm sure Madolche is simply way too slow to compete there.)
Advanced Format: 3/5 (With Hootcake around, Madolche has the consistency to be a solid sleeper pick at any time. It is something to keep watch as time goes on.)

Madolche Hootcake
EARTH/Beast/Effect/Level3/1500/1100

When this card in your possession is destroyed by your opponent's card (either by battle or by card effect) and sent to your Graveyard: Shuffle this card into the Deck. You can target 1 monster in your Graveyard; banish it, and if you do, Special Summon 1 "Madolche" monster from your Deck, except "Madolche Hootcake". You can only use this effect of "Madolche Hootcake" once per turn.

At number 8 of our top 10 cards from Lord of the Tachyon Dragon is Madolche Hootcake, another monster is the cake-based archetype. Madolche Hootcake has two effects, the first is the standard Madolche back to deck effect. The second effect is the powerful and worryingly getting more common special summon a monster from your deck effect. This time however, you have to banish a monster from your graveyard, in order to do so. The problem I see is that because of the standard Madolche back to deck effect it’s not going to be easy to get a monster in the grave, without so creative means.

Overall, a powerful effect but even in its own archetype it can be limiting.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3/5
