I'm really intrigued by the Madolche Archtype, and I'm not entirely sure why. I've not played against a Madolche Deck, nor have I even seen somebody play one. Maybe it's the whimsical nature, and how they seem to have so much to do with food? Anyway, this particular Madolche is a Level 4, Earth type Warrior, with 1600 attack and 1000 defense. When your opponent destroys this card you control (by Battle or by card effect), she shuffles herself back into the Deck. So long as she is sent to the Graveyard, which I suppose isn't bad, a recycling of sorts. When Special Summoned, our female letter carrier lets you add a Madolche Magic or Trap card from your Deck to your Hand. That's a good thing, a free resource is usually a wonderful thing. But the thing that kills that is you HAVE to control a Beast-type Madolche to activate and resolve that effect. I don't see why that has to be so specific and restrictive, it makes it hard to play her, even in her Deck. So unnecessary.

The Madolche archetype is a highly underrated, underplayed, and fun deck to play. The focus of Madolches is to keep recycling your resources while your opponent expends theirs and to swarm the field with level 3 and 4 monsters to either power them up or to Xyz summon more powerful monsters. All Madolche monsters have the effect of going back to the deck when destroyed, so they can be reused. One of the key cards in the deck is a field spell card by the name of Madolche Chateau. This field spell card powers up all of your Madolche monsters and allows you to send them back to your hand when destroyed instead of sending them back to the deck.

This is where Madolche Messengelato comes in. It allows you to search for any Madolche spell or trap card when it is special summoned and you have a Beast type monster on the field. That is where Madolche Mewfeuille comes in useful as it not only special summons Messengelato, but is also a Beast, so Messengelato will be able to get its effect. The spells that you want to get with Messengelato are ether Madolche Chateau or Ticket. Together, those cards load your hand with Madolche monsters.

The question is; is Madolche Messengelato necessary to a Madolche deck? My answer to that question is no. First, Madolche Ticket and the Madolche traps are not needed to make a good Madolche deck. All you really need is Madolche Chateau and Madolche Butlerusk can get that for you and it does not need to be special summoned. Butlerusk only needs any Madolche on the field while Messengelato has to have a Beast.

I want to point something out before I wrap things up. Madolche Messengelato is the latest Madolche to be released and while all of the Madolche monsters that were released before it say “When this card you control is destroyed”, Messengelato says, “When this card in your possession is destroyed”. Apparently the boys in R&D have come up with wording that describes cards in your hand and on the field. Sense all of the Madolche monsters work the same, we should apply this to all Madolche monsters. This is not official as far as I know, but I would check with your head judge if you are playing Madolches in a tournament.

Traditional: 1//5
Advanced: 2/5
