Acolight Archetype (11/11)

Recommended Posts

Acolight is an Archetype of Spellcaster-Type/LIGHT Level 3 Special Summon only monsters with 1000 ATK and DEF. They focus on Tokens and Xyz Summoning. Each monster can Special Summon itself and a Token based on it, which cannot be Tributed or used as Synchro Material. Along with that, they gain an effect while you control that kind of Token, and also have an effect that benefits the Token, e.g. they cannot be destroyed by card effects. Lastly, they are destroyed if you don't control a Token. The name is a pun on "acolyte" with "light", hence their Attribute and their theme is based around religion and the themes typically associated with religion.
 
Main Deck Monsters:

That Token cannot be Tributed or used as Synchro Material. While you control a "Peace Token", this card cannot be targeted for an attack.

Very nice stuff !

Almost all the cards are individually and collectively well balanced.

 

I have still 2 things to add :

1 : You should 'homogenize' the names of your tokens. I know each card requires its OWN Token to use its effect, BUT since it's difficult to have 2 or more Acolight on the Field, and because they always come with their own Tokens (with their effects or the spells ones), it does not make a big difference. Plus, it would permit you to have a 3 Acolights + 2 Tokens Field with no problem using your effects. I must add that as it is right now, it seems a bit 'messy' to me...

Just something like "Acolyte Token" could work... well everything would work since it does not contain "Acolight", in fact...

2 : I have a problem with one of your cards : Acolight Blasphemy. Whereas it seems to be a -1 card, the 2 Tokens gift is a joke, and the card becomes easily some kind of +0,5 with no real 'cost' (and I'm not talking about what a cost refers to in the Yugioh TCG) appart from being a bit slow.

 

Finally, all your S/T cards are very strong, and maybe some of them should be less powerful, but in general, this is a great work you've done !

No, that's not how I want them to work, they are  going to stay with those names. And for the record, the acolytes are the monsters, not the Tokens.

 

Well yes, I can see it being powerful, we do have draw cards similar to that which do not give Tokens, while that is an effect that is suppose to be used with the Deck's playstyle, so it works well with them, other Decks may not wish to give these Tokens, so I don't think it's really a big issue.
