This is a really fun card for a number of reasons,
but the main reason is because it’s the only one of
its kind. That being a level 4 normal tuner. And
frankly, you can kind of tell that this monster was
made to be the best at what it can be. With amazing
level 4 stats and being an earth/plant type, which
is what you want for synchros, it’s pretty much the
best normal level 4 monster in the game not named
All sorts of shenanigans can be had with Trumpeter.
From Rescue Rabbit to Painful Decision to Unexpected
Dai, getting a level 4 tuner with normal-monster
support is big time, and leads to easy Naturia
Barkion and Beast summons, rank 4 XYZ’s, and level 7
or 8 generic synchros. And I won’t fail to mention
it’s an easy drop in plant synchro decks and
actually fills a hole there. Plant synchros don’t
utilize many level 4 tuners, since there aren’t many
good ones that serve the purpose needed, but Angel
Trumpeter not only allows for easy summons through
Unexpected Dai and Tuner’s High, but it grants that
option even through normal summons. The deck runs so
many level 1 monsters/tokens, that a level 4 tuner
is just what the doctor ordered to get into those
level 5 synchro plays.
Angel Trumpeter is a card with a future. It will see
a lot of play over the years, especially if it stays
the only level 4 normal tuner for a while. I could
easily see this being in tier 1 decks in the future,
should plants ever rise again. The only way you
could make this monster better would be to make it a
pendulum, but then it would just be godly.
Future Potential: 4.5/5
Inherently speaking, it's nothing
It's basically a LV4 tuner with
Archfiend Soldier stats. Big deal.
It could have been released in the
very first set with Tuners in it.
This card benefits from being both a
Plant and a Normal Monster.
It gets plant support like Lonefire
Blossom and other great cards from
the Gigaplant era.
It makes Painful Decision more
viable to run in 3's by giving you
more targets to run it with.
It's good in combination with other
cards because it's easy to bring out
and it can even float.
This card is very versatile and has
room in rogue/niche decks (maybe
even mainstream variants)
Hello Pojo Fans,
Angel Trumpeter is a pretty simple monster.
Good ATK, Level 4, Tuner, with Plant and EARTH
support backing it. It gives plants another Tuner
option, and being a “vanilla” it gives Rescue Rabbit
an option to be put into a plant deck to fish out
some other Normal Plant-Type monsters. Being a
Normal monster it also benefits from the Normal
support around the game like Swing of Memories.
Likely won't see much play in a competitive plant
deck, but it has potential.
Normal Monsters are easy to review because they
are only their stats and have inherent support from
the beginning of the game to now. Angel Trumpeter is
a Level 4 Earth Plant-type Tuner monster with 1900
Atk and 1600 Def. I always enjoy cards that are bold
enough to use the word Angel. The name is also not
part of any particular theme, which means it could
go anywhere it wants. Level 4 is the best Level in
the game because it requires no tributes. This one
in particular is a Tuner which makes it able to be
used as XYZ or Synchro Material. Earth is good if
only because it isn't Light or Dark. Every relevant
deck these days seems to be Light or Dark or some
combination. Earth can be quite unexpected. Plants
have some support, but I don't think Angel Trumpeter
will take them out of obscurity. Finally, 1900 Atk
is great for Level 4. Even 1600 Def can stand up to
some attacks. There is absolutely nothing wrong with
this card, but it also doesn't do anything
spectacular. It's a combo piece to something great
in the future.
