Back to the main COTD
Infernoids are an annoying Rogue deck that likes
to appear when people least expect them. Infernoid
Patrulea is a Level 4 Fire Fiend-type monster with
1800 Atk and 0 Def. Being Level 4 is always good,
but in this case it's a little better because
Infernoids need to have low level monsters on the
field to Special Summon themselves. Fiend gives the
deck some interesting support that they don't really
use or need. 1800 Atk is good, but 0 Def is bad. A
mixed bag of stats.
The first effect of almost all the Infernoids is
that they Must be Special Summoned by their specific
method while the combined Level and Ranks of all
monsters you control are 8 or less. Patrulea must
Banish 1 Infernoid monster from your Hand or
Graveyard to Special Summon this one from your Hand.
The cannot be Normal Summoned, Set, or Special
Summoned by other ways sucks. The useful effect is
to target and destroy a Spell or Trap on the field
once per turn. But then it can't attack. The final
effect only activates once during each opponent's
turn. You can tribute one monster to target one card
in your opponent's grave for banishment. That's
cute. At least it's a Quick Effect. I believe it can
also tribute itself for the cost of this effect.
There are too many restrictions on Patrulea and
Infernoids in general to be very good.
Score: 2.5/5 Infernoids got hit when Reasoning got
Art: 3/5 Too similar to the water giga monsters.
