Mobius the Mega Monarch is outdated, not improved
enough, and not the Mega of anything. Level 8, two
tributes, Water, Aqua, 2800 attack and 1000 defense.
As opposed to the traditional Two Tributes, you can
Tribute a Tribute Summoned Monster, I'm sure
ideally. a Monarch. When Tribute Summoned, target
up to three Magic or Trap cards on the Field, yours
and/or your opponents, and destroy them. I suppose
if you destroy three, assuming everything went
through without chain and resolved, and neither
player gained/lost other cards, that is a +1 for
you. If you Tribute this card using a Water
Monster, the chosen Magic/Trap cards cannot be
activated in response to said effect. Well,
ironically, better as that is, it doesn't generate
you more than the original +1. Too many hoops, too
much condition and situation, and not enough

Another expansion and another new Mega Monarch, in
this case Mobius the Mega Monarch the Mega mode of
Mobius the Frost Monarch. Statwise it is a
WATER/Aqua which is good with 2800 ATK, what you
would expect for a level 8 and 1000 DEF, awful for a
Like most tribute monsters these days, it has an
alternate summoning condition, in this case it can
be tribute summoned using 1 monster that already has
been tribute summoned. No matter what way you look
at it that is still 2 monsters so the alternate
summoning condition doesn’t really help.
Effectwise, it has a slightly stronger version of
the original Mobius’s effect, now it can destroy up
to 3 Spell/Traps but to be honest unless there are 3
cards to destroy you might as well use the original
version. This card does get an additional effect if
a WATER monster was tribute for this card tribute
summon the target cards cannot be activate in
response to the activation of the effect. This
does give some protection but it isn’t enough to
warrant the use of this card.
Overall, like Granmarg the Mega Monarch the original
is the best, so far these Mega Monarchs aren’t that
Hello Pojo Fans,
The second of the “Mega Monarch” monsters is here
and it's a good one. Mobius the Mega Monarch is a
Water, Level 8, Aqua-Type monster with
2800ATK/1000DEF. “You can Tribute Summon this card
by Tributing 1 Tribute Summoned monster. When this
card is Tribute Summoned: You can target up to 3
Spell/Trap Cards on the field; destroy those
targets. If this card was Tribute Summoned by
Tributing a WATER monster, add this additional
effect.● Your opponent cannot activate the targeted
card(s) in response to this effect’s activation.”.
Attack is consistent with most level eight monsters,
defense matches with all “Monarch” monsters. Monarch
decks can run level eight monsters (Light and
Darkness Dragon) to combo with the Mega Monarchs, so
Trade-In is a viable choice to help you out. When
Mobius is Tribute Summoned, you can target up to
three cards in your opponents spell/trap zones and
destroy them, that's pretty good, one better than
the smaller Mobius. If a Water-Type monster was used
to help Tribute Summon this Mega Mobius, your
opponent can't chain any of the targeted cards, even
better! Nothing like destroying spell/traps your
opponent has and stopping them from activating them
at the same time. If you have a monster you Tribute
Summoned on the field (a different Monarch) you only
need one Tribute if you use that monster. This is
the best of the “Mega Monarch” monsters so far (and
Thestalos the Mega Monarch isn't going to top this).
Destroy three spell/trap cards your opponent has, if
you use a Water-type along with the Tribute Summon
they cannot chain them. Soul Exchange with Treeborn
Frog on the field and an opponent's monster, bring
out Mobius and get it's effect and destroy up to
Getting the Tribute Summon to only cost you one
monster may be a little tricky if you are trying to
get of Mobius's sealing effect on the spell/trap
destruction. There aren't many Water-Type monsters
you will be using a Tribute Summon on. You'll likely
have to use Soul Exchange with Treeborn Frog or
another Water-Type monster. Certain cards can be
used in combination with this card so you don't lose
advantage on the field or in the hand as you set
this up. The only real drawback would be if you
waited while setting this up, finally played your
move, and ended up getting an Effect Veiler dropped
on you for all your trouble.
Basically, an “upgraded” (scare quotes) version
of Mobius the Frost Monach. It's a hair better, but
the improvements are not nearly worth the added
400 more ATK and even an ability that prevents
your opponent from chaining cards (yet still lets
them use cards like Solemn Warning) pales in
comparison to the requirement of tributing 2
monsters. Actually, it's worse than just tributing 2
monsters because you have to wait a turn, hoping
nothing goes wrong.
Tribute summoning a monster is risky enough, but
having to tribute summon a tribute-summoned monster
just adds more restriction. The chances of being
able to summon this card in a duel are slim. You
would have to draw a LV5+ higher monster, draw this
card, summon the LV5+ monster and then summon this
card, all while your opponent conveniently does
nothing to halt you.
On top of that, when you somehow do summon it,
you will only get card advantage if your opponent
happens to have 2 or more Spell/Trap cards.
Actually, the opponent would need to have 3 in order
to make this card worth it. And most decks don't
rely on 2-3 Spell Trap cards.
As it stands, if the original Mobius is not
seeing a ton of use today (though it can be a useful
side-deck option for some), then there's definitely
no use for a much weaker version of him.
TLDR: Use the original Mobius the Frost Monarch
instead. This card sucks.
Traditional – 1/5
Advanced – 1/5
In the dark days of the GX era, there were only
two types of players: those that Monarch'd and those
that got Monarch'd. In memory of that series of
monsters, it would seem Konami has introduced newer
"upgraded" versions in the Mega Monarchs (really?
Mega Monarchs? Did you get that name off a 7 year
old?). Today we look at one of those monsters: Mega
What he does is fairly straightforward: he blows
up backrow so you can then pummel your opponent.
Also, they cannot chain to his effect with the three
cards you target (and most people don't set more
than three cards anyway), so you have nothing to
fear once you use him apart from the occasional
Effect Veiler (though almost every Effect monster
fears her icy touch).
He's not very good, but not very bad either. As
it stands, there are just too many better
alternatives out there.
Mobius the Mega Monarch
Although it has its issues, Mobius the Mega Monarch
is much better than the previous Mega Monarch,
Granmarg. For the cost of 2 tributes, Mega Mobius
destroys 3 spell/trap cards, compared to 1 tribute
to destroy 2 spell/trap cards for the original
Mobius. This makes the Mega Monarch a higher risk
for a higher reward. With cards like Warning, Veiler,
and even Fiendish Chain seeing play, this is
typically not worth it.
What Mobius does have going for it is its Water
attribute. Since the primary tribute fodder for
Monarch decks, Treeborn Frog, happens to be Water,
Mobius gains its additional effect. This additional
effect prevents the targeted cards from being
chained. This allows Mega Mobius to work around
commonly played traps such as Fiendish Chain.
Preventing your opponent from chaining the cards you
are destroying makes Mega Mobius a better card
overall than the original.
Getting 2 tributes out for Mega Mobius isn’t too
bad when you consider 1 of them is a free Treeborn
Frog. An easy way to get the other tribute is a
Battle Fader. Still, it’s a lot easier to get just 1
tribute for a Caius or a Raiza.
A significant problem with the card is there are
still ways to counter Mega Mobius too easily, even
with preventing your opponent from chaining the
spell/trap cards you target. Warning negates the
summon of Mega Mobius before its effect can
activate, meaning Warning gets around Mobius’s
anti-chaining effect. Veiler is activated in the
hand, so it also gets around Mobius’s additional
effect. This is only 1-4 cards in your opponent's
deck, but it's a risk you have to make when using
Overall Mega Mobius is playable in a Monarch
deck, but he’s a borderline option.
