We continue our Top 10 Countdown with #7:
Position on my list: N/A
Archfiend Eccentrick is another card that just
barely missed the cut on my list. If you’re looking
for versatile spot removal, you probably won’t find
anything better. Her monster effect is equivalent to
Exiled Force (y’know, that really old monster from
back in the day?), and her Pendulum effect is a
slower MST. More or less, Archfiend Eccentrick can
answer any threat you’re facing, and being a
Pendulum Monster means that you can re-summon her
So on paper, Archfiend Eccentrick is great, but I
also believe she’s a little overhyped. The two most
effective Pendulum Decks in the game right now are
Performage and Magician; in the former, being Level
3 means it’s not that easy to bring her back, and in
the latter, being a Scale 7 means she’s effectively
useless as a Pendulum Scale. She also cannot deal
with Anti-Spell Fragrance, the main floodgate threat
Most of these concerns are trivial however, and
Archfiend Eccentrick is still an overall very solid
#7, and my assessment of it has
not changed since a few months ago: It's one of the best generic Pendulum monsters we've seen yet.
Atop of providing the overall Pendulum works, it can
pop a spell/trap and then come back to pop a
monster. Since Pendulum monsters revive
themselves with ease, it could potentially be like
having an Exiled Force for free every turn. A
Hello Pojo Fans,
Archfiend Eccentrick rounds out the week on Pojo.
With several ways to search out the LIGHT Fiend,
Eccentrick is a 1-for-1 regardless of where it ends
up. Drop into the Pendulum Zone to pop a s/t on the
field, or tribute it as a monster to destroy a
This card is a solid option to disrupt your
opponents field regardless of what deck you play.
Even if you have no way of searching this card out
and it goes against your strategy, this card can
still be used. It doesn't need to go to the grave to
complete its effect, and you can use it within your
Pendulum Scale before activating its effect. Also,
it does not specify which card you target with
either effect, so if you need to destroy a card of
your own to gain advantage or search something out,
this card can do that. Like yesterdays card,
Eccentrick is a great Side Deck option for any deck.
Until Next Time
This was the very first card I reviewed. Ah the
memories. When we reviewed Archfiend Eccentrick, we
gave it a 3.58/5. I believe it has only gotten
better with time. Even though it is a Pendulum
Monster, you can use this in any deck to utilize one
of her effects. If it can be targeted and destroyed,
Archfiend Eccentrick can get it off the field.
Within a Pendulum deck that can get Level 3 on the
field repeatedly, Archfiend Eccentrick will possibly
be able to pop two cards and still return to the
Extra Deck to try again the next turn. I really like
the design of this card overall because with awesome
effects comes a fairly low Atk and Def. Now I just
wish it had a lower price tag.
Art: 4.5/5 I still love crazy chicks.
