Starstrike Blast gave Fiend Duelists a new heavy-hitter, as Archfiend Empress entered the fiendish fray! Now Fiend Decks get another boost, as Storm of Ragnarok unleashes another high-Level Fiend-Type: Chaos Hunter. The Hunter is a Level 7 DARK Fiend with 2500 ATK and 1600 DEF…
When your opponent Special Summons a big monster, you can match it with Chaos Hunter to ward off attacks. And Since Chaos Hunter is a DARK Fiend, you can Special Summon it from the Graveyard with Archfiend Empress‘ effect. In a classic Fiend strategy it’s going to help you load your Graveyard to Summon Dark Necrofear and use Archfiend’s Roar, but the Hunter may be at its best in a different breed of Fiend Deck: Fabled.
The Fabled Deck revolves around discarding Fabled monsters to get special effects, so they combo really well with Chaos Hunter’s discard. Pitch Fabled Kushano to Special SummonChaos Hunter, and you can use Kushano’s effect to return it to your hand later. DiscardFabled Lurrie to Special Summon it alongside Chaos Hunter, or discard Fabled Krus to Special Summon another Level 4 or lower Fabled from your Graveyard. Use Krus to Special Summon a Tuner, and you can even use the Hunter for a Synchro Summon.
One of the best Synchro Monsters you can Summon in a Fabled Deck is Fabled Leviathan – the Level 10 boss monster of the Fabled family. To bring Leviathan out, all you have to do is pair Chaos Hunter with a Level 3 Fabled Tuner like Fabled Kushano. If you discard FabledKrus to Special Summon Chaos Hunter, you can use Krus’ effect to Special Summon Kushano then and there. One move with just 2 cards gets you everything you need to unleash FabledLeviathan: a pretty good deal, since Leviathan returns as many as 3 “Fabled” monsters to your hand when it’s destroyed.
While Chaos Hunter is a great attacker, a surprise defender, and a great Synchro Material Monster, it packs a useful effect, too. If your opponent can’t remove cards from play, they won’t be able to stop your attacks with Dimensional Prison, and the cards you control will be safe from Caius the Shadow Monarch and Chaos Sorcerer’s effects. In fact, your opponent won’t even be able to Special Summon monsters like Chaos Sorcerer and Gigantes, which require monsters in the Graveyard to be removed from play. Dark Armed Dragon’s effect won’t work; your Graveyard will be safe from D.D. Crow and Crevice into the Different Dimension; and cards like Miracle Fusion will be useless.
With more Fabled monsters on the horizon, and with Fiends continuing to get more support with each new set, Chaos Hunter arrives at just the right time. It’s even great in Sealed play, so watch out for it at your local Storm of Ragnarok Sneak Peek event!
