This card is the heart and core of the Qliphort deck.  Without this card successfully activating, the deck becomes inconsistent and completely falls apart.  Every Qliphort deck NEEDS 3 of this card.  If you don't have 3 Scout, don't run Qliphorts at all.

What this card enables you to do is Pendulum Summon without resource cost, unlike most of the other Pendulums out there.  The life point cost is very minimal compared to the things this card will enable you to do.  When you first use the search effect of this card, it immediately pays for itself but then you can subsequently use it every turn to start plussing.

Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon can also search Tool but I find it a bit slow for my tastes compared to the other options I mentioned above.  Performopal Trampolynx can also be used to return Scout to the hand so you can activate the search effect again.  I personally run 3 Summoner's Art, 3 Pot of Duality, and 3 Upstart Goblin in a Qliphort deck to ensure I get Scout turn one.

 

It's vital.

Qliphort Scout

This is probably the most powerful card in the advanced format to date. The ability to search any card for your combo and perform a turn 2-4 one turn kill is ridiculous. This card has 6 ways to be searched in addition to the search functions it gives. Qliphort have very few answers in the current format due to there protection clause as well. I look forward to the continued terror Qliphorts bring to the game in the coming months because of this card.

Traditional 3/5
Advanced 5/5

Qliphort Scout
 
Here comes the onslaught of the “Clip-arts”…
 
The first thing that actually makes Qliphort Scout so good (apart from it’s obviously awesome effect) is that it can be searched out from your Deck so easily, thus meaning that even if your opponent gets rid of one a second and possibly even a third are already on their way towards being brought out as a replacement. Likely candidates to search out Qliphort Scout are Summoner’s Art, Saqlifice and Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon. Furthermore it can also be recovered by using Rescue Hamster. And if all of that “Horror” wasn’t enough for you to get your mind around, it can even be “Bounced” and reused if you play Performapal Trampolynx (which IMO you should), just in case you need a further searching and consistency boost!
 
When Qliphort Scout is in your Pendulum Zone you can for the mere cost of 800 of your Lifepoints add 1 “Qli” (Qliphort) card from your Deck to your hand. This means that you can either set yourself up to be able to add another Qliphort Scout from your Deck to your hand as soon as possible by adding Saqlifice to your hand or you can add the other side of your Pendulum Scale, thus allowing for easy Pendulum Summoning straight away.
While this is a once per turn effect if you play the above mentioned Performapal Trampolynx you will get the opportunity to be able to use the effect of Qliphort Scout twice in the same turn, essentially adding in a “Turbo” aspect.
 
The only downside to Qliphort Scout is that you cannot Special Summon monsters other than “Qli’s,” again though, this is where Performapal Trampolynx can come in so useful since by “Bounching’ Qliphort Scout you avoid this otherwise negative effect.
 
This is an absolute STAPLE card for Qliphort’s, the ONLY reason you could possibly have to not play the maximum 3 that you are allowed would be that you don’t have 3!
 
Traditional: 3.75 Even here I feel that Qliphort’s may be able to make quite the impact.
 
Advanced: 4.25. This is the KEY card to the Deck, my score here reflects it’s absolute importance… Stopping this card is KEY if you are playing against Qliphort’s!

Qliphort Scout
 
We continue looking at The New Challengers and we start of this week we look at a card from the new Qli archetype; Qliphort Scout
 
Statwise, Qliphort Scout is an EARTH/Machine which is good, with 1000 ATK and 2800 DEF, quite standard for a high level monster with high DEF. It has a Pendulum Scale of 9, which is excellent and allows you to Pendulum Summon nearly all Qli monsters.
 
Effectwise it only has a Pendulum Effect; First off you can only Special Summon “Qli” monsters and this can’t be negated. So immediately this card is only useful in a Qli deck. Also once per trun you can pay 800 LP to add any !Qli” card barring another Scout to your hand. 800 LPs is a reasonable cost to search for any Qli card and be able to use it each turn.  This makes this card very useful as it is the archetype’s main searcher and summoner.
 
Overall the backbone of the Qli archetype, if you are playing Qlis make sure you are using this card. Other decks just ignore it.
 
Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced:  4/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
One of the new “Qli” monsters starts off this week at Pojo CoTD. Qliphort Scout is a Pendulum Monster that, with its effect and scale number, is particularly useful for its archetype. With a scale of 9, monsters levels 8 and below are able to be Pendulum Summoned as long as you complete the scale on the other side (among those with a scale of 1 is Qliphort Carrier). What makes Qliphort Scout necessary for the deck is that it starts the combos for the “Qli” archetype with its effect. Though you can't Special Summon monsters, except "Qli" monsters, you can pay 800 Life Points per turn to add 1 "Qli" card from your Deck to your hand, except "Qliphort Scout". A monster that each turn can search out any monster within the archetype for 1/10th of your Life Points is a great effect. Combine that with the fact that all “Qli” monsters are below level 9 (and all having 2400ATK or above aside from this card) means whichever monster you search is likely getting Pendulum Summoned that turn.
 
Outside the decktype is doesn't really have a place aside from if you are trying to Pendulum Summon level 8 monsters. It's a Normal Monster that has 1000ATK and, though able to be searched out by things outside the archetype, won't do much good aside from being a wall with 2800DEF.
 
Traditional-1/5
Advanced-2.5/5
Art-3/5
