Waveweb Archetype (16/16)

Recommended Posts

Waveweb is an Archetype of Insect/WATER monsters with various Levels. They focus on negating their own activation and effects, as the monsters all have effects that Special Summon them from the hand when your effects are negated, using Counter Traps, as well as Synchro Summoning.

 

Their main playstyle revolves around simply using Seabed along with Sting to negate one of your own monster's effects, which is most easily done with the Tuners, and then Special Summoning a monster from your hand, or using Capture to take control of one of your opponent's monsters. While the Tuners have conditions that make it harder to get the Synchro Monster you want, but with Sting, you don't destroy the monster, so if you choose to negate your monster's effect, you gain the ability to use Capture or Special Summon from your hand, so you can gain access to Link and Synchro Summons easily.

 

They are based on sea spiders, which I figured would be interesting, as Insect/WATER has so few members, while I know that they aren't like normal spiders, it feels odd for them not to be Insect to me.

Interesting concept.

 

I think it's a little difficult to start plays because most of your monsters' effects are Trigger instead of Ignition, so you can't negate their effects "on demand." There can be some ways to improve it. The first one is to change the summoning conditions of the monsters to trigger when your Waveweb's effect is negated (instead of the activation) so cards like Forbidden Chalice or Axe of Fools work to trigger the summoning, or, add a throwaway Ignition effects on the other monsters so you can easily decide when you want to negate the activation of your own card effects. Something like maybe, "Once per turn: You can inflict 100 damage to your opponent" or "Once per turn: You can have this card gain 100 ATK/DEF." What matters is that now you can freely choose when to start your plays.

 

For the counter traps, aren't Sting and Meal too powerful? The negate effect is good but not overpowered, but being able to set them back afterwards is a huge power. Why don't change it so they got Set back only when you negate your own cards? That way you'll also rarely run out of cards to negate your own effects.
