Pojo's Yu-Gi-Oh! Card of the Day
Daily Since 2002!
Noble Knight Peredur
You can only control 1 "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. (This 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 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.

Nothing too exciting here, as this Noble Knight has
the prominent text in his own form that you've seen
on more than one occasion. But he does have great
things going for him...Noble Knight Peredur is Level
4, and Light attributed, with 1900 attack. Those
are the great things...a not so great thing, the 300
defense, it's insulting. Another good-ish thing, if
equipped with a Noble Arms card, this becomes a
Level 5, Dark attributed Monster. I've said before,
as good as the Noble Knight theme may be/is, being
too dependent on things like Equip Magic cards isn't
good. If this card is destroyed while equipped with
a Noble Arms card, you can add a Noble Arms card
from your Deck to your Hand. Not a great effect,
yet not a terrible one, just an effect. I mean, a
Monster would be better, and even being able to
recycle the Noble Arms card to another Monster on
the Field would help. It's just slow. These guys
mostly and basically do the same things anyway.
We get more support for Noble Knights in today’s
card, Noble Knight Peredur. What Peredur gives you
is another Knight that becomes a level 5 Dark
monster. The other two are Noble Knight Madraut and
Borz. This is important for the summoning of
Artorigus King of the Noble Knight and sacred Noble
Knight of King Artorigus. It is also important for
the special summoning of Lady of the Lake from the
graveyard to Synchro summon Ignoble Knight of High
The effect of Noble Knight Peredur is quite nice as
well. With 1900 in attack, Peredur can hold its own
with any level 4 monster. When you boost its attack
with Noble Arms Gallatin, you have a strong 2900 in
attack. If your opponent sends Peredur to the grave
or you Synchro summon with it, you get one of your
Noble Arms cards back from the graveyard.
Noble Knight Peredur does what the Noble theme is
geared to do and that is offset the disadvantage
that comes with playing equip cards. That
disadvantage is that they are normally a minus one
advantage when the monster is destroyed. The Noble
Arms cards and Peredur all work to nullify that
disadvantage. Noble Knight Peredur will soon become
a staple in Noble Knight Decks. My ratings on this
card reflect Noble Knight’s impact to the Meta.

Howdy there today's card is Noble Knight Peredur,
one of the new Noble cards from Legacy, I believe he
is one of the cards people aren't really taking much
interest with, I believe he is a good revival card
for the equip spells, I personally enjoy the XYZ end
of Nobles more, since this one is more effective
with Synchros obviously, it would have been cool if
he got his effect while being XYZ material.
Nevertheless, Nobles one day shall rise and never
Traditional: 1/5 (Not much to do here)
Advanced: 4/5 (More maybe in the future with more
support, but still has useage)
Art: 10/10 I am a HUGE fan of the Noble Knights,
their art is gorgeous, marvelous, prestigious,
brave, god so bad ass!!
Noble Knight Peredur
From what I see though, it's definitely a winner
in self-sufficiency for an archetype-based card, but
in context of the theme, it may not be as excellent
as it seems. The ability to change level and
attributes makes it quite flexible for Extra Deck
summons. 1900 ATK for level 4 is very good. The
ability to retrieve a Noble Arms card from the
graveyard does make this card revenue-nuetral, so
long as you aren't unlucky enough to have it die
unarmed. In the end, graveyard retrieval effects are
rarely the best kind (they suck early game), and low
level beater stats don't matter much in YGO anymore,
so this card is probably to be best remembered for
changing it's attribute and level to accommodate
more powerful monsters. Still, an overall well
balanced card that is worth running at least 1 of in
it's archetype, though not 3. Not really
recommended anywhere else.
Traditional: 1/5 (Bad) – Don't take it personal
Peredur; Trad format hates archetypes in general.
Advanced: 3/5 (Good) -- In
context of the deck type
Hello, my guppies. I see you are here for your
daily dose of enlightenment. Be still as the train
of enlightenment runs you over.
Peredurrrrr sure is slow. We've known him for so
long and it is now that he chooses to finally show
himself fully. Peredurrrrrr, I am disappointed. But
anyway, Peredur is an awesome guy! You can use
Arfeudutyr with him to blow up a facedown card, and
then he'll fall down to 1400 your opponent will have
to run him over! And then you get back Arfeudutyr!
Okay, that was a joke, you see. Peredur is
actually a most unwelcome addition to the Noble
Knight archetype, not doing much of anything for
them and being slow while not doing anything. The
only things he has going for him is being a Noble
Knight, Light and a Warrior. All the Noble Knights
have that going for them. Don't use this guy. Ever.
He will be a sad man.
How to counter Peredurrrr: don't worry about it.
You'll never see him.
