Tranorix's Tantalizingly Terrible Tips
Inferno Tempest
August 8, 2005

This is a combo for inferno tempest. The cards you need are scapegoat,
Lava-golem, inferno tempest, morphing jar #2, and more than 3000 life
points.

Ok first have morphing jar already set then play scapegoat. Set
inferno tempest. Summon lava golem on your opponents side, the attack it
with a scapegoat token. Then play inferno tempest. Then in main phase 2.
flip morphing jar 2 and your opponent will deck out and you win since they
have no monster level 4 or lower in their deck but you have morphing jar
2and your scapegoat tokens were destroyed so they don’t count as monsters.
 

Gameplay Mistake #1: You cannot summon Lava Golem the same turn you activate Scapegoat.

Gameplay Mistake #2: You cannot manually switch a Sheep Token to Attack Position the same turn you activate Scapegoat.

Gameplay Mistake #3: You cannot activate Inferno Tempest the same turn you set it.

Gameplay Mistake #4: The opponent will not deck out, as the opponent will not need to pick up any cards.  Lava Golem is returned to the deck of its owner, not its controller.  The player who flips Morphing Jar #2, therefore, will need to pick up cards until he reaches two monsters: Morphing Jar #2 and Lava Golem. 

Gameplay Mistake #5: Sheep Tokens most certainly DO count as monsters, but they are simply removed from play when Morphing Jar #2 activates, not returned to the deck.

 

Strategy Mistake #1: This combo requires four cards and is therefore very unreliable.

Strategy Mistake #2: This combo is easily countered by any card that stops attacks, any card that negates Spells, or any card that negates monster effects.  It is also countered by the fact that it doesn’t work.
 

There are other, actual ways to use Inferno Tempest, of course.  You could activate Scapegoat on your OPPONENT’S turn, then summon Lava Golem on yours.  Also on your turn you could switch a Sheep Token to ATK and attack Lava Golem, then activate Inferno Tempest from your hand (because it’s a Quickplay!).  With all the monsters removed, a few decent stall cards to keep Lava Golem (and whatever else your opponent may have had on the field) from attacking are all you need.  D.D. Dynamite would also work well, to burn your opponent for massive damage.

 

So there ARE viable combos for Inferno Tempest.  This, however, is not one of them. 

 

Until next time…keep it rentsy, and remember: always recycle. 

 

TO THE EXTREME!
