Scrap Archfiend, could be the first non-effect Synchro monster we have reviewed ever, but I didn't go back and check. We have a terrifying looking (like some kind of evil Iron Giant) mechanical, Level 7, Earth type Synchro, with 2700 attack and 1800 defense.

Now here's the beauty of this particular monster, and most Scrap Synchro monsters, the Synchro Summon is simply perfromed by a Tuner and
1 or more non-Tuner monsters. So for no effect, you get the easiest 2700 attack Synchro ever. Level 7 is workable, as only a Level 3 Tuner is required and a Level 4 monster, or vice versa, so two cards is good.

If you're playing Scrap you're very likely to be playing Scrap Archfiend, but at the same time, you very well may not be...

General Zorpa Scrap Archfiend

Now, unlike yesterday's card, this guy is actually not bad, even though he is a Synchro without an effect. Scrap Archfiend is a level 7 EARTH Fiend with 2700 ATK and 1800 DEf. These stats are amazing for this card level. It is the strongest generic level 7 Synchro, making a deck that Synchros to level 7 a lot happy as they can now get over Stardust Dragon without having to gamble with Acnient Fairy in DEF position.
 
As it stands, this guy could see some table time as just a fairly solid beater at the easiest level to Synchro to. However, he is now competeing with the newly unleashed Black Rose Dragon, which is pretty much the best level 7 we have at the moment. but there is still a chance that he can shine.
 
Since he is both a Scrap monster as well as an Archfiend, he can take advantage of both of those archetypes support systems, but they just aren't going to help the car out that much. As it stands, effectless monsters tendto be underused in the TCG, so I think that he is going to be as well. I do see him being a tech card in a deck that is missing one Synchro and makes level 7 monsters a lot.
 
Traditional-1/5
Advanced-2.5/5

Scrap Archfiend …

Well there isn’t all that much special about this guy, but it’s his basic stats that make him awesome. Namely being a level 7 Sycnhro Dark Fiend with no special restrictions on him, and having that big ol’ 2700 ATK. Goyo Guardian pulls off the miracle 2800 ATK with only 6 stars to his name, but the level 7 Synchros don’t have a huge amount of heavy hitting options when all u need is muscle … Thus, Scrap Archfiend stepped onto the stage.

The only downside to him is that right now, he’s as good as he’ll ever be, unless they start building all sorts of weird support and extras for him, like they have for Stardust or something. In the future, they will only be making more level 7 Synchros with big ATKs, but these will have actual effects to them, reducing the significance of Scrap Archfiend. But until then? – U should definitely find a spot in your extra deck for him.

Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced: 4/5
