Back to the main COTD
Madloche Anjelly opens this week, and the
Madloches continue to be just adorable. But are they
any good? A Level 4, Fairy type Monster, with 1000
attack and defense, isn't off to a good start.
Furthermore, being Earth really hurts a Fairy. We
like our Fairies to be Light. She does do a couple
of nifty things though. When destroyed by your
opponent, she is shuffled back into the Deck, so
long as she was going to the Graveyard. Which I
suppose is a good enough effect right? Secondly, you
can Tribute this card to Special Summon a Madloche
Monster from your Deck. That's a unique ability in
itself. Said Monster, however, returns back to be
shuffled into the Deck at the End Phase of your next
turn. You can only use the effect once per turn
also, so that's fair and balanced. Said Special
Summoned Monster cannot be destroyed by Battle also.
It assist in Special Summoning other things I
suppose, but I'm still not seeing much of a point.
It's a tricky Deck to use.
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 Tribute this card;
Special Summon 1 "Madolche" monster from your Deck,
but shuffle it into the Deck during the End Phase of
your next turn. You can only use this effect of "Madolche
Anjelly" once per turn. That Special Summoned
monster cannot be destroyed by battle.
Another week of Primal Origin cards and we start
off with Madolche Anjelly. Statwise Madolche Anjelly
is an EARTH/Fairy; which is a strange combination
with 1000 ATK and DEF both are poor for a level 4.
However due to Madolche Anjelly’s effect stats
don’t matter. As well as the standard Madolche
effect. Madolche Anjelly’s main effect allows you to
tribute it in order to Special Summon any Madolche
monster from your deck. Not only can it be any
Madolche monster which makes this a really powerful
effect but to make it even more powerful it can’t be
destroyed by battle. Of course there is the thing
that the monster will return to the deck during the
End Phase of your next turn, but by then you will
have used the monster for whatever reason you
summoned it in the first place, so it doesn’t really
matter. Of course you can only use this effect once
per turn, no surprise there.
Overall a very good monster, poor stats but they
mean nothing to a monster that can give you a
indestructible monster for two turns.
One of the most sought after
chase cards of the new Primal Origins booster set is
undoubtedly Madolche Anjelly. The fact that this
card is just an ultra rare has not stopped it from
fetching one of the highest prices in the entire
set. A large part of the reason this card is so
expensive can be attributed to hype. But hype on
good merit? Anjelly's effect is quite powerful,
boosting consistency for the Madolche archetype
considerably along with opening up powerful options
and combos previously unavailable entirely.
The amount of combinations this card brings to the
Madolche deck is quite impressive. The main combo
will involve summoning Anjelly, tributing to search
Hootcake, Hootcake's effect then can banish Anjelly
from the grave, essentially allowing Anjelly to
single-handedly search and set up Hootcake and its
effect through a one card play. From Hootcake, you
can special summon any Madolche monster from your
deck, allowing you to summon another level 3 to
overlay into any of your rank 3 xyz monster options
such as M-X Saber Invoker or Leviair the Sea Dragon,
Another incredibly powerful play requiring only
Madolche Mewfeuille and Anjelly in hand can be
executed as following: Normal summon Mewfeuille, use
effect to special summon Anjelly. Tribute Anjelly,
to special summon Hootcake from the deck. Use
Hootcake effect to banish Anjelly, and then special
Summon Madolche Messengelato from the deck. Use
Messengelato's effect to add either Madolche Ticket
or Chateau (whichever you need at the time) to your
hand and then activate it. Now overlay Hootcake with
Mewfeuille to xyz summon Leviair. Use Leviair's
effect to special summon Anjelly from the banished
zone. Now overlay Anjelly and Messengelato for
Madolche Queen Tiaramisu. Use her effect to recycle
your Madolche cards in grave (if applicable, this
part of the effect is not required), then return two
of your opponents cards on the field to their deck
without targeting them! This two card combo is a
hard +3 resource advantage when executed in this
manor, not even including the benefits of having a
stronger field presence with Madolche Queen
Tiaramisu and Leviair the Sea Dragon whom can both
use their effects again next turn.
Madolche Anjelly is a monster with an extremely
beneficial effect. Many would even consider
Anjelly's effect to be over-powered when put in
comparison to other archetypes monsters with
searching or special summoning from deck options (or
lack there of). However, although Anjelly is
unarguably an extremely useful and essential monster
for the Madolches, it hasn't been quite enough to
propel them to Tier 1 within the meta, even though
they have risen a few ranks. This is due in part to
another card we will be reviewing at the end of this
week, Number 103: Ragnazero, so stay tuned to find
Mechanic Design: 2.5/5 (Arguably overpowered effect
with essentially no cost to special summon any
themed monster from the deck without restriction.
Card design like this speeds up power creep.)
Art: 2.5/5 (I know some niche type of players will
find this card art appealing. But even when in
direct comparison to the Madolche Archetype alone,
this artwork feels bland.)
Hello Pojo Fans,
Starting off Monday we have one of the most hyped
cards coming out of Primal Origin: Madolche Anjelly.
This cutie has been sought after by the Madolche
archtype. An Earth, Fairy-type, Level 4,
1000ATK/1000DEF, When destroyed by your opponent's
card (either by battle or by card effect) and sent
to your Graveyard: Shuffle Anjelly into the Deck.
You can Tribute this card; Special Summon 1 "Madolche"
monster from your Deck, but shuffle it into the Deck
during the End Phase of your next turn. You can only
use this effect of "Madolche Anjelly" once per turn.
That Special Summoned monster cannot be destroyed by
This card is tremendous for the archtype, period.
Able to be targeted by several cards run in the
deck, Anjelly becomes broken with Chateau. Tribute
her, Special Summon a Madolche monster from your
Deck, return Anjelly to your hand. Throw Madolche
Ticket into the mix and you can have an instant
Madolche Queen Tiaramisu. Even if you aren't Xyz
Summoning initially, the monster Special Summoned by
Anjelly cannot be destroyed by battle, and won't
return to the Deck until the End Phase of your next
turn. Special Summoning capabilities, searchable,
protection of Special Summoned monster, and ability
to jump-start a strategy even when topdecked, this
card is great. Its low stats don't even matter in
this case, Madolche Anjelly is tremendous for the
archtype, run it in threes.
Traditional-1/5 (Madolche- 5/5)
Advanced-2/5 (Madolche- 5/5)
Art-5/5- too darn cute!
Until Next Time
Anjelly, an angel representing gelatin, is the
lowest-calorie card of the Madolches and also one of
the best cards they have at their disposal.
The #1 thing that every deck needs is consistency
and Madolches have got this here. For those who
don't know, Madolches are a Disney-esque deck theme
based around wealthy mansions, high living and most
importantly dessert foods.
Practically speaking, their card Madolche Chateau
(for those who don't know) returns Madolche
monsters, that would otherwise be returned to the
deck, back to the hand. So basically, its really
difficult to destroy Madolche monsters. You can
only fend them off until the next turn unless you
destroy the Field Spell.
This card is granted with the standard Madolche
effect of being able to return itself when
destroyed. Mixed with Chateau, you don't -1 when
you lose this monster. But usually, you'll be
tributing this card to Special Summon another
Madolche. Yes, you can have any Madolche you want
to use, right away. So keep in mind the "drawback"
of having to return your monster next turn is often
not a serious one. If anything, if you can play
fast, you'll only need that monster for a turn or 2.
It only has 1000 ATK (1500 with Chateau) but you
don't need to attack with this card any more than
you do with Lonefire Blossom. This card is meant
for searching monsters, and it does that very well.
It works with the others really well.
Hootcake - Anjelly sends itself to the grave for
Hootcake to banish
Messengelato - When Special Summoned by Anjelly, you
+1 a Madolche Spell card
Puddingcess - This LV5 monster just got easier to
summon. No tributes needed.
Cruffsant - Bring him out for some XYZ combos
Mewfeuille - Can Special Summon Anjelly and search
out the monster you would've wanted to summon from
your hand anyway.
Oh, and this card is a LV4 for Tiaramisu.
All in all, amazing card for a deck that needed a
Obviously this card is for pure Madolche decks only.
But for those who run Madolches, it is mandatory to
own 3 copies of this card.
Hello, beauties, today I come to you from the
candy kingdom. No, not the cool one in Adventure
Time, but a candy kingdom filled with 2000+ ATK
monsters that swarm onto your field and maul you.
Today we look at Madolche Anjelly. She is a
questionably-designed card, and the main reason
Madolche has been performing as well as it is. This
card was made for one purpose, and one purpose only,
to be used for Hootcake. There's no other reason she
tributes herself other than so you can have a
Madolche in the Graveyard for it. Let's look at a
little combo with her:
Madolche Anjelly ---> Madolche Hootcake --->
That's the opening move every Madolche player
will go for, and it only requires them drawing
Anjelly. That's a strong first turn play that
usually leaves them with 4100 ATK on the board. Now
the ideal combo is something like:
Summon Madolche Mewfeuille--->Summon Madolche
Anjelly--->Summon Madolche Hootcake--->Summon
Madolche Messengelato--->Summon M-X Saber
Invoker--->Summon a second Madolche Messengelato--->Xyz
the Madolche Tiaramisu by using the two Messengelato
That combo only requires you open Mew and Anjelly,
or have them in your hand at any given time, which
isn't hard to do since Madolche has so much search
power. I could go on giving you combos, but you
should already get the point that Anjelly is
absurdly powerful and should be a three-off in any
Madolche deck. Use it. Use it well.
Art: 1/5. Very tempted to give a 0 here. Look at her
feet. Look at her face. Bad. Bad art.
