Archfiend Empress

Well, regionals didn't go as well as planned. Dropped after being 2-3 due to exhaustion (no place for lunch nearby and was feeling bad), but oh well...that stuff happens.

However, today's other topic is a new card I discovered upon getting back home.

Archfiend Empress...the STBL sneak promo.

Level 8/Fiend/Dark


If exactly 1 face-up DARK Fiend-type monster on the field would be destroyed except this card, you can remove 1 DARK Fiend-type monster from your Graveyard instead. If this card is destroyed and sent from the field to the Graveyard, you can select 1 Level 5 or higher DARK Fiend-type monster in your Graveyard, except "Archfiend Empress" and Special Summon it.

Well, this is certainly an interesting card for Fiend decks.

Protect your Caius, Dark Ruler, Dark Necrofear, or any other Fiend (perhaps Infernities) from any single destruction, but that's a rare thing.

What makes this card interesting is that when it's destroyed you bring back a high level fiend from the graveyard in exchange. Now, Dark Necrofear would be my prime candidate (gotta check the rulings, not sure at the moment), as well as Ambitious Gofer, Dirg the Dark Monarch, and Gorz.

Something fun to keep an eye on.


  1. Hey bro, dont sleep on this card.. :) I've been playing around w/ Archfiend's since they came out... Archfiend's Roar (Normal Trap)is going to be huge w/ this card... Pay 500 Life Points to activate this card. Special Summon 1 Archfiend Monster Card from your Graveyard. This monster cannot be Tributed under any conditions and is destroyed during the End Phase of this turn... (Key word Destroyed...)

    Pandemonium's 2nd Effect:

    Each time a player's "Archfiend" monster(s) is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, except by battle, that player can add 1 "Archfiend" monster from their Deck to their hand that is a lower Level than the destroyed card.

    That means you can pretty much search for any Archfiend card in your deck...

    Also, Mist Archfiend Lv. 5 2400 / 0 ...
    Effect: You can Normal Summon this card without Tributing a monster. If you do this, during the End Phase it is destroyed and you take 1000 damage.

    She protects him from "himself" and bottomless', DP, etc...

    Also, Run this w/ Armageddon Knight, TerrorKing Archfiend, Stygian Street Patrol, etc...

    Good card man, trade me yours...

  2. I also think that Skull Meister 4Star 1700atk will support fiends, just looking for feedback for a Archfiend build
