Compass Dragon Archetype (13/13)

Recommended Posts

Compass Dragon is an Archetype of Level 5 and 8 Wyrm Union Pendulum Monsters with different Attributes. They focus on Union monsters and Pendulum Summoning. Each monster has the same Pendulum Effect that can place a monster from the Deck in the Pendulum Zone and protect itself from destruction, and the Level 5 monsters can be Normal Summoned without Tributing if you control no monsters.They are based on compass as the name implies and based on the different cardinal directions for the Level 5s and ordinal directions for the Level 8s
 
This is my first Pendulum Archetype that is designed with the new format in mind as well as my first Pendulum Archetype based around Union monsters, so they are made less restrictive and made so that getting them back to the hand is easier, rather than using Link Monsters, though you can choose to play with Link Monsters if you wish as well.

How has this not gotten any reviews?

 

I found this while doing research for my own group of Pen/Unions I've been working on, and let me say these are great! The Pen effects are standard but useful, and the ability to keep recycling these monsters for protection makes a very competitive mechanic. Even the S/T support is really useful in getting your card's out there. Good job!

Probably because this thread's been dead for almost 10 months, so...yeah, this is technically a necro. The review is fine under the current standards, but in the future, if thread hasn't gotten posted in for more than 2 weeks, please don't post in it.

 

Zazu, you're more than welcome to remake this thread if you feel like revisiting them + making updates.
