Tenacity of the
I use 2 of these in my Vanity Monarchs.
It gets my 2 March of the Monarchs and my 1
Return of the Monarchs to my hand faster.
Doesn't do anything profound but it thins the
deck a bit.
Pretty bland borderline card but gets the job
|Tenacity of the
Monarchs...more unnecessary and unremarkable Monarch
support. This is a very simple one-for-one,
and something I suppose you'd consider running if
you were running a very straight forward and
dedicated Monarch Deck. By revealing a Monarch
or Mega Monarch from your Hand, which allows you to
add a Monarch Magic/Trap card from the Deck to the
Hand, save this card of course. You can only
use one of these a turn. It's not bad, it's
just really not that good, and given how popular
Monarchs are on the scene, it's best just sitting
around waiting for a day they may be again.
Tenacity of the Monarchs
Isn’t it nice when you get that new toy?
Well Monarchs have just gotten one and they are
rather happy about it.
And this is because FINALLY Monarchs have a card
that allows them to search out a “Monarch” Spell or
Trap card from their Deck.
However to do this a Monster with either 2400/ 2800
ATK and 1000 DEF must first be revealed from your
hand… Luckily then that all Monarchs fit into this
ATK and DEF bracket!
There are some other noteable cards outside of
Monarchs that can also allow for you to make use of
Tenacity of the Monarchs… These cards being
Majesty’s Fiend, Dark Armed Dragon as well as 6
Once you can activate the card there are currently 8
“Monarch” Spell and Trap cards that this can choose
from for you to add to your hand… Although the most
logical choice most of the time really is going to
be The Monarchs Stormforth.
Because of Tenacity of the Monarch, running a
Monarch Deck that can make use of the Spell and Trap
support is now 1 step closer to an actual reality…
And Ghostrick Monarch variants are certainly those
who currently seem to be benefiting the most from
this ability to get exactly the card that you want.
Any Monarch Deck that is using the “Monarch” support
Spell and Trap cards will be using 3 Tenacity of the
Monarchs, a Monarch Deck that is using 3 of The
Monarchs Stormforth only will only be using 2
Tenacity of the Monarchs.
And while there is certainly a small chance that the
second copy of Tenacity of the Monarchs may be
“Dead” it is certainly worth the risk simply because
of how good The Monarchs Stormforth is.
The boost Monarchs needed.
Rating: 3.75. Because of the requirement needed to
activate this card, there will be times when you
actually will not be able to activate it, and this
will hurt this card from time to time. Adds much
needed consistency though and that allows Monarchs
to keep up.
