Thematically related to the Scarlet Chain, Azure Alliance and Lavender archetypes, "Silvercrest Sentinel" is an archetype of LIGHT Rock-Type monsters who cannot be destroyed by battle. They can only ever be destroyed by card effects, unless you negate their effects.
Appearance wise, they are Rock Elemental-esque beings. The lower level ones look cute, being comprised of only a few small rocks and wearing cute expressions on their faces. The higher level monsters are comprised of lots of huge rocks and look incredibly powerful. Just like the aforementioned archetypes, they also have their own insignia and everything, and the insignia is hidden somewhere on their rock body, though usually is on their shoulder. Also, their rocks usually have random bits of silver melded onto the rocks in random places.
Their playstyle is this: Stall. They already cant be destroyed by battle, but what about removal and card effects and banishing and stuff like that? The Spell Cards give them those protections. The littler monsters, along with their Copy/Pasted effects, search archetypal Spell Cards. The Spell Cards are almost all Continuous, and provide some sort of protection from card effects for archetypal monsters. The bigger monsters focus on not only being indestructible beatsticks, but crushing your opponent in the process, by making them discard, sending cards from their deck to their GY and stuff like that upon an archetypal monster attacking.
