Custennin can actually help them extend their plays, so it actually adds to them, while isolde creates the equip graveyard setup.
The Xyz is alright, it might be a fine 0-2 off, though nothing special at all, it can be neat at times, though does not address noble knights all too much.
Pellinore is weird, it is the second main deck "boss", which does nothing to help the deck, then again it regenerating the equip and drawing 1 card might be fun (in the middle of laddering).
Clarent is trash, it does nothing for the deck, aadds no protection, nor any ability to push, it just sits there and sometimes steal a win, though not often enough to be good.
This wave of support is honestly disappointing, they are alright I guess ... however do nothing at all (apart maybe from Custennin) to address the decks flaws and strenghts.
Custennin is the MVP. It helps them get follow-ups with Isolde, possibly making an Xyz to fetch the arms that Isolde dumped.
Xyz Custennin feels like a 1-of. Floating into an Artorigus to grab equips in GY and non-destruction removal is nice. Downsides are that it doesn't fetch any equips from the GY, isn't a quick effect, and it targets.
I like Pellinore, for the most part. A pretty solid +2 each time you use its effect. Only part that sucks is that the Noble Arms has to be equipped to him (instead of any Arms you control) and it's reliant on your opponent having a face-up monster to begin with.
Clarent is definitely a 1-of, imo. It feels like a win-more, but if all you can do is sit on a protected Artorigus and your opponent keeps setting cards, you wouldn't do damage since you have to attack over monsters. This card can help remedy that by letting him attack directly, pressuring your opponent to get rid of your monster.
The support isn't game-breaking like a lot of people hoped, but I don't think they're too bad. It helps Noble Knights, but not in the ways they needed to be helped (same thing could be said for prior supports).
custennin is absolutely insane. its the additional play extender this deck actually needed,
big custennin seems like its good enough just being a card that you can get off of excalibur if you even play that lol
pellinore is crazy dope just for being a card you can easily drop on the board and it's a slower drystan but also draws 1? might not be as good as drystan by merit of the quick play tho
clarent seems awful
Noble Arms- Clarent actually looks more ideal with the Dark Scorpion archetype considering their low attack and their need to inflict battle damage to pull off their effects.
