On its own, Scrap Archfiend is an easy-to-Summon Level 7 Synchro Monster with an unparalleled 2700 ATK! Since it doesn’t require any specific Synchro Materials, you can play it alongside almost any Deck. But for Duelists ready to take up a new Deck, Scrap Archfiendgets even better.
Jerome already gave you an introduction to the Scrap theme earlier this week, so by now you know that Scrap Decks are all about quick Synchro Summoning thanks to effects that recycle “Scrap” monsters from the Graveyard. Scrap Chimera can Special Summon a “Scrap” Tuner from your Graveyard, and since Chimera is Level 4, it’s easy to make big Synchro Summons. Setting it all up is easy – try this combo:
Destroying Scrap Goblin or Scrap Beast with Scrapstorm triggers your “Scrap” Tuner’s effect, getting you a monster back from your Graveyard – like the Scrap Chimera you just sent there from your Deck with Scrapstorm. Depending on which Tuner you used, you can then SummonScrap Chimera, Special Summon the Tuner, and Synchro Summon a “Scrap” monster immediately.
Remember, Scrapstorm is a Quick-Play Spell Card, so you can Chain it to your opponent’s cards. If you Summon Scrap Beast or Scrap Goblin, and your opponent tries to respond withBook of Moon or Torrential Tribute, Chaining Scrapstorm will let you destroy the “Scrap” Tuner first. That puts your combo into action, getting 2 new cards into your hand while your opponent’s Spell or Trap loses out.
Filling your Graveyard with “Scrap” monsters makes it easier to Synchro Summon with ScrapChimera, and creates bigger plays with Scrapstorm. But thanks to a new World Premiere card, you’ll get even more out of the “Scrap” monsters you throw away!
Guts of Steel is an all-new Spell Card for Scrap Duests. It lets you choose 3 “Scrap” monsters in your Graveyard, and your opponent picks 1 of them. You Special Summon that monster to either side of the field – your choice – and the other 2 monsters get removed from the game.
If you have three big “Scrap” monsters in your Graveyard, Guts of Steel will let you Special Summon 1 of them. Scrap Archfiend has 2700 ATK; Scrap Dragon has 2800 ATK and an effect that can destroy cards every turn; and Scrap Golem has 2300 ATK, plus it can Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Scrap monster from the Graveyard. Even weaker monsters like Scrap Goblinand Scrap Beast can be useful, since they’re both Tuners.
The 2 monsters you don’t Special Summon with Guts of Steel get removed from play, but with cards like Return from the Different Dimension and D.D.R. – Different Dimension Reincarnation, you can Special Summon them back to the field. As more new “Scrap” monsters are released, Guts of Steel is just going to keep on getting better and better and forcing your opponent to make tougher and tougher choices.
The Scrap Deck is all about recycling monsters from the Graveyard to make big attacks, and these 2 new World Premiere cards build on that theme. Scrap Archfiend gives you a second big monster to Synchro Summon with Scrap Chimera, and Guts of Steel gives you another way to make big Special Summons from your Graveyard. Play Scrap Chimera and Guts of Steel together on the same turn, and you can overwhelm your opponent with massive monsters! It’s exactly what Scrap Duelists needed.
