Hello Pojo Fans,
Dragonpulse Magician brings us back to Pendulum
Monsters, and though it doesn't have an effect as a
monster, its Pendulum Effect is pretty good.
As a monster it is a standard vanilla beater,
1800ATK, weaker DEF (900), and has the Spellcaster
support behind it. Highly searchable, place this guy
in the Pendulum Zone, ditch a Pendulum while you
have another Magician in your other Pendulum zone to
destroy a face-up monster.
Any face-up monster is available to target, you can
recycle the monsters you ditch with Pot of Riches,
and still be able to Pendulum Summon after you
activate this monsters effect. It would be better if
it were any position monster, or if you could target
any card. Archfiend Eccentrick is better even if you
lose Eccentrick in your Pendulum Zone.
There is some support in the archetype, but there
are better Pendulum Monsters.
Until Next Time
Magicians. The oldest archetype. This new wave of
magicians are Pendulum dominant decks. Dragonpulse
Magician is a Level 4 Earth Spellcaster-type
Pendulum Monster with 1800 Atk and 900 Def and
Scales of 1. These are some great stats. Pendulum
Magicians have new support. I don't think it matters
that it is Earth. Level 4 is always good for Rank 4
plays. Spell caster is a necessity for many of the
cards that get Special Summoned just for having one
on the field. Even being a Normal Monster is good
because of the support that they get from the
Graveyard if they end up there (Swing of Memories,
Silent Doom, etc.) 1800 Atk is decent for a Level 4.
I also like that the Def is exactly half. 1 is the
lowest a Scale can be, so this card has awesome
Dragonpulse Magician has only one Spell effect,
which is fine. At the cost of discarding a Pendulum
Monster target and destroy a face-up monster on the
field. You can only do that once per turn, but I
believe if you activate a different Dragonpulse
Magician, you can do it again. This is what I was
referring to about Pendulums ending up in the
Graveyard instead of the Extra Deck.
Finally, the combos. The magicians combo with
Performages, Majespecters, and even Saterllarknights
to an extent. Dragonpulse Magician has a lot going
for it and not a lot against. It's even easy to own.
Go get some.
Art: 4/5 Needs more Dragon Pulsing.
Ah, what a lovely lady.
Pojo Staff Member: whispers
in Snodin's ear
THAT'S A GUY????? …..Well, whatever. Still lovely.
Well, I can see why this, along with its brother,
would be in a Starter Deck. This is part of a small
but undoubtedly growing set of Pendulum “Magicians,”
which have no doubt already made their mark on the
anime- I wouldn't know, I gave up on the anime
franchises mid-way through GX. Anyway, it coincides
with monsters like it, in that when you have another
Pendulum Monster with “Magician” in its name in the
other Pendulum Zone, you can discard yet another
Pendulum Monster from your hand to kill one Monster
on the field. A simple yet effective move, and one
that's bound to see a lot of play with the growing
abundance of Pendulum Monster cards. But if you want
me to be honest, this is only one half of a deadly
duo, and we'll see the other half tomorrow.
…...Are you SURE that's a guy?
Final Score: 4/5- Excellent for Pendulum decks in
general, better still with Dragonpit Magician
