Moving from Synchro, back to XYZ to close the week, we come to Adreus, Keeper of Armageddon...who hardly bring Armageddon, but we'll get back to that in a little bit.  This is a Dark attributed, Rank 5 XYZ Monster, who is XYZ Summoned with two Level 5 Monsters.  Didn't I mention XYZ Monsters who required more than Level 4 or below Monsters to be Summoned?  Anyway, that's a big investment, and those selected Monsters (at Level 5) are likely to be Synchros, even in a dedicated XYZ build.  Now, Adreus has 2600 attack (good) and 1700 defense (meh).  Now, by discarding one XYZ Material Monster, Adreus can destroy one face-up card your opponent controls.  Someone needs to explain to me how that resembles Armageddon, but I digress...this effect isn't bad either, and it may work twice, as the 2600 attack is solid obviously.  I'm not sure if I've mentioned this yet, but the XYZ need a card (or cards) to recycle XYZ Material Monsters to other XYZ Monsters, in order to be able to use the effect(s) more, like how some card can move Magic Counters from one card to another.  Anyway, the card destroyed can only be face-up, and the effect is gone if it survives long enough to use both of its Material Monsters.  Your opponent is either going to set something, or run it over, as it likely isn't going to purposely leave something stronger out just for you to destroy.  I just don't see the investment of two Level 5 Monsters being worth this.

Adreus, Keeper of Armageddon is a TCG-exclusive Xyz monster. At level 5, this thing is really awkward to summon, and won't be seen outside of Dark Worlds--and you'll be seeing a LOT of Dark Worlds once the next Structure Deck is released. Walking destruction like that is nothing to scoff at, especially on 2600 ATK. However, this card's counterpart, Tiras, Keeper of Genesis, is way, way better, with a destruction immunity.

2/5--the lesser of two Rank 5's.
Art: Weerd yo.
Fun Fact: Start hoarding Dark World cards.

Adreus, Keeper of Armageddon finishes out this week. A rank 5 Xyz, it requires two level 5 monsters to summon. This Monster does not have much going for it outside of its DARK attribute. Requiring two level 5 monsters means that not even monarchs will be able to make it and it is highly doubtful duelists will want to give up two level 5 synchros for it. Adreus’ effect is ok. Once per turn it targets and destroys a single face up card. I may be wrong about this card in the future, but for now even duelists dedicated to the Xyz mechanic will pass on this card.

Adreus, Keeper of Armageddon
Adreus is our second TCG exclusive to get reviewed and he, like Orient Dragon from yesterday, also doesn’t disappoint. At first glance, one might think Adreus will be difficult to summon. A rank 5 Xyz isn’t particularly easy to summon, but with the upcoming release of Structure Deck: Gates of the Underworld, Adreus gets a huge boost. Dark Worlds can easily summon Adreus and it gives them extra destructive power. Like the Dark Worlds, Adreus is a Dark, Fiend and will receive an attack boost from their field spell. He already boasts a powerful 2600 attack and 1700 defense with an effect that reminds me of Dark Armed Dragon. Adreus’ effect is a little watered-down compared to Dark Armed, but is still amazing. Once per turn by detaching an Xyz material, you can destroy a face-up card your opponent controls. If you are able to summon this card, you should be well on your way to winning, especially if you’re playing Dark Worlds. Expect to see this card in every Dark World player’s extra deck, but maybe not in extra decks elsewhere.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5
Advanced (In Dark Worlds): 5/5

Adreus, Keeper of Armageddon

Closing our week, we have a brand new Xyz Monster: Adreus, Keeper of Armageddon. I must say, so far I am very pleased with Generation Force as a whole. Very pleased is actually probably a huge understatement, since this set is looking REALLY good. Anyway, a whole slew of Xyz Monsters become available to the TCG in Generation Force, and Adreus joins the ranks of the just-about-staple Xyz Monsters. You give up 2 Level 5 Monsters to Summon this 2600 beatstick that gives you a +1 for each Xyz Material on him. I really like this card, and I know that both Fabled and Dark World really like him too, since Fabled can turn 2 Ragins or Trickys into him and Dark Worlds can do their Dark Worldy thing, spam the field with Level 5 monsters and drop 2 Adreus if they need to. Cards that generate advantage for no cost are really good, and Adreus falls right into that category, destroying any face-up card (that includes Spells and Traps). If your deck can put Level 5 monsters out easily, Synchros or not, you run this guy. No exceptions.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 4/5
