We continue our Breakers of Shadow week with what is quite possibly the most anticipated card of the set (if not that, then second to Friday’s card): Performapal Pendulum Sorcerer.

 

The Performapals are probably the game’s greatest example of a “rags to riches” story. At the beginning of the ARC-V era, the Performapals were derided for being overall subpar as well as not even being that cool. But recent cards have tremendously increased the power of the Performapals, with cards such as Skullcrobat Joker and Monkeyboard (the latter also newly released in BOSH) turning the Deck into one of the strongest Pendulum engines we’ve had.

 

Performapal Pendulum Sorcerer is the icing on the cake, because on Special Summon he can destroy up to two cards you control, and for each monster destroyed you add a Performapal to your hand (note that if you destroy a Pendulum Scale, you still get a search because it’s a monster off-field). Not only does this give you follow-up plays, but you don’t actually lose any advantage if you pop Pendulum Monsters. This guy also combos very well with Performage Plushfire in order to bring out extra Performages to work with. At the very least Pendulum Sorcerer is blowing up your own Scales to keep you safe from Wavering Eyes, while also letting you search out cards that will let you reset your scales in the next turn.

 

Performage/Performapal Decks have run rampant in the OCG for many months now, and the OCG is just now getting the Deck at its full potential (well, not quite; we don’t have nearly as many broken Rank 4 monsters) thanks to this card, as well as various other new support from BOSH. Performapal Pendulum Sorcerer pushes the Deck’s ceiling to astronomical levels, rivaling the likes of Dragon Ruler and TeleDAD in terms of sheer power. While the lack of cards such as Shock Master won’t make the Deck quite the menace it was in the OCG (where it would be tough to argue that anything in the game’s history was stronger than it), we may be heading into a Tier 0 format anyway, given just how strong the entire Performapal engine is with the introduction of this card and more.

 

Rating: 5/5

Performapal Pendulum Sorcerer is a Level 4 Earth Spellcaster-type Pendulum Monster with 1500 Atk and 800 Def and Scales of 2. Perform monsters are getting to be a dime a dozen. If this had a Magician in its name instead of Sorcerer, it would be that much more awesome. As it stands, the stats are fairly good. Spellcasters have support, Level 4 is the only Level in Yugioh sometimes, low scales are good, and 1500 Atk is good enough to do damage.

The Pendulum effect is only useful to Performapal monsters. When one is Pendulum Summoned, all the ones you control gain 1000 Atk. The Monster effect is probably the reason this card is $60 on Amazon. If this card is Special Summoned by any means, you can destroy up to 2 of your own cards to search Performapal monsters with different names from your Deck to your hand. You can only do that once per turn, but getting a whole new set of Performapal scales for free is worth it. Remember destroying your own scales still counts as monsters being destroyed for this effect.

Score: 3.5/5 Special, destroy, search, Pendulum. Nice.
Art: 3/5
