 I am a huge Synchro fan so when I was looking through the cards for Judgment of the Light, I noticed this interesting card.

 

v67uo1.png

 

Armades, Keeper of Boundaries

Level 5/LIGHT/Fiend/Synchro/Effect

ATK/2300 DEF/1500

1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
If this card attacks or is attacked, your opponent cannot activate cards or effects until the end of the Damage Step.

 

 

What I like about this card:

● It is a Lv. 5 Synchro Monster.

Now-a-days, Lv. 5 & 8 Synchro monsters are the most popular due to the popularity of Rank/Level 4s & 7s. The basic Formula to Summon a Lv. 5 or 8 Synchro Monster is any Lv. 4 or 7 + Effect Veiler, which is the most popular Lv. 1 Tuner monster.

 

● It stops Damage Step Abuse.

With the new support of Bujins and Fire Fists, along with Beast-Warrior Types getting really popular, Damage Step abuse would be everywhere. This card stops them in their track.

 

● It stops Flip, Trigger and Trigger-Like effects.

You can attack with no fear of Battle Fader, Swift Scarecrow, searchers such as Sangan (*sheds single tear*), Bear, Ghostrick Lantern & Specter, Ryko, etc. etc. etc.

 

● It stops them even if it gets attacked.

Stops things like Crimson Blader, Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Bear, Goyo Guardian, etc.

 

● It only prevents your opponent from activating any cards and effects.

Do you have ANY idea how good that is? You can declare an attack, then activate Compulsory and your opponent can't chain it. You can attack, then activate Call of the Haunted and your opponent can't do anything about it.

 If you have Armedas and a Set Mirror Force, and your opponent has Stardust Dragon and Absolute Zero, if they attack Armedas and you activate Mirror Force, Stardust Dragon cannot negate it and Absolute Zero's effect cannot be activated when its destroyed. WOW.

 

 

What I don't like about this card:

● Weak Stats.

ATK/2300 DEF/1500 these days isn't much.

 

● It only works for its own battles.

Your opponent can still Mirror Force it when another monster declares an attack.

 

● Outside of its battles, it's defenseless.

It doesn't have any protection so its vulnerable to monster removal, monster negation, and No. 11 Big Eye :|

One thing to take note that if a monster attacks Armades, if you activate something like mirror force, your opponent can't response to the mirror force. Its because once they attack, they can't activate anything but you still can.

I knew we already had one of these

It's not updated with the TCG name and the pic is broken, but the thread already exists. Merge maybe?

At first I thought this was "just another Ancient Gear (with monster prevention)" but...working when it is attacked is interesting. Maybe I should consider this a bit more because I don't like Bujin since well I find this more fitting in a select few decks than Catastor...

 

I do wonder if this'll get a DARK Synchro counterpart with a similar effect (like immunity to stuff while it's not the Battle Phase or w/e...)

About the artwork I can agree that it is a copy of Laval but for the effect I cant seem to like it.It is nothing so special for me yes it will has its moments but very rear and most of the time he wont do any good well at least in my opinion. :)

I honestly expected better of Armades, being linked to its Xyz counterparts Adreus and Tiras. If it were something like this:

 

When this card is Synchro Summoned, while it remains face-up on the field or in the Graveyard: Your opponent cannot activate cards or effects during the Battle Phase.

 

Then a more useful card without the weaknesses of the current Armades is in the offing. But in keeping with the sissified releases of JOTL, this card is weak and paltry too. What a waste of cardboard.

Yes, because that's not busted at all...

 

The card's fine as is. Is it a "must have" Synchro Monster in your extra deck? Maybe, maybe not, but it does have its uses and I can see it seeing some use in a few decks.

How do you expect Synchro-based decks to compete then? Besides, this is nothing Prophecy or Dragon Rulers can't handle, so what's the big deal?

Synchro-based decks are doing just fine. Okay, sure, I mean, if you're looking at it from a strictly "uber-competitive" view, then perhaps not. But just because a deck isn't competitive doesn't mean it's a "bad" deck. There are plenty of really solid decks out there that aren't Elemental Dragons or Prophecy decks.

 

Would I like for there to be a very competitive synchro-based deck...? Of course. But let's not try and break the game doing so. Konami already does a swell job of that.

no thanks

speaking of weakness, i rather have the current one that gets protection including when re-summoned from the graveyard after being removed from the field

Synchro Spam, or a new deck that focuses on syncho summons.  besides, for that matter, most cards are "nothing Prophecy or Dragon Rulers can't handle" , so what's the big deal?

I just happen to be playing along with your game without realizing it, and in the end, I fell into your trap simply because I hadn't realized the circumstances of the conversation

you're like the puppet master, orchestrating this entire conversation as you please to make it what you want it to be

You're probably going to have to provide an answer before Star will let you go. Or you could run.

 I'm NOT saying this is official but... I found these:

 I have no idea how to read Japanese but judging by the Numbers underneath the big Japanese Letters thingies (1, 2, 3), I'm assuming these are the new Limited, Semi-Limited and Unlimited Cards for the upcoming Banlist.

 

 Glow-Up Bulb is underneath the "3" section. If this is True, then this card would be much more playable.

Any list with glow-up at 3 is more than likely counterfeit. It could be real, there's always the chance, but if it is, then unless the ban/ limited list plans on getting a ton of new tenants, then I'm absolutely sure that list is either fake, or not the ban list.

I actually agree with Mr.Gentleman for once.  It's not even a matter of making Synchro Decks "competitive" either, but rather making a meh card freaking fantastic.

The attack/type of this card sucks. Adreus is the better Keeper :P. i mean it negating stuff while in battle is cool though it doesn't stop main phase stuff :/
