Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Elder Entity Norden is our throwback today, and a good target for the eventual banlist.
 
Anyone can run it, and can summon it, but the method of using Instant Fusion is the most direct. Pay for Instant Fusion, get Norden out, get a free Special Summon of a Level 4 or lower from the grave. Sure, its on-filed effects are negated, but that isn't the point of Norden. Xyz Summon using this card and the monster you bring back, or start up turn combos with the monster you bring back. Shaddolls get both their targets for Shaddoll Fusion, while Zoodiacs can launch another turn of combo plays. ABC's get one of their Union monsters back and can start attaching/fusing, Norden fits in any Extra Deck. It takes too many resources to bring him out naturally, so stick with Instant Fusion.

Elder Entity Norden
 
Since its release, Norden has been dominating the game via its ability to ensure that a player is able to complete a 1 card turn around for their turn...
And while Elder Entity Norden is almost always tied to Instant Fusion, once it has been properly Summoned (again almost always with Instant Fusion to begin with) a card such as Call of the Haunted can be used to revive Norden, and then its effect can be used to reload the field with an Extra Deck option.
 
One of the most powerful options currently available for players is to use Instant Fusion to Summon Elder Entity Norden, revive a Level 4 Water attribute monster from the Graveyard, Xyz into Bahamut Shark and then use its effect to Summon Toadally Awesome... Or maybe you use Norden to recover a Level 4 and go into PSY-Framelord Omega... Or Daigusto Emeral... Or a Zoodiac and then build into a 1 card Zoodiac Xyz with that card...
Essentially, the usefulness of Elder Entity Norden is only restricted by the Deck that you are currently playing, and the potential options that you can build into with its Summon.
 
I'm certain that there are some players out there that may think that since Elder Entity Norden does negate the effect(s) of the Summoned monster AND may potentially Banish the monster Summoned with its effect that Norden may be somewhat of a potential liability... Put it this way, Elder Entity Norden when Summoned with Instant Fusion is essentially a 1 card and 1000 LP investment for the chance to get yourself back into the game... Or push your turn further... If for some reason it doesn't quite work out, as plays don't from time to time, this is through no fault of Norden's.
 
It should be mentioned that Elder Entity Norden CAN be Summoned with Polymerisation (or proxy)... Lame!
But more importantly, Elder Entity Norden is a card that truly highlights how broken Super Polymerisation is, and while Norden stays Limited, Super Poly will remain Banned eternally.
 
Rating: 5. Sometimes the fact that Norden provides a hilarious boost to Abyss Dweller just goes to show that Norden is "Boss" when it comes to a card that can almost truly do it all.

Really? Elder Entity Norden. Again. Despite the name, the card is considerably younger than other "staples". I'm looking at you Raigeki. That being said, if you run Instant Fusion in the main deck, you run this in the Extra Deck. That will be the case until one of the cards is actually banned. Which is doubtful because the card in and of itself is not broken. It's not even all that powerful. It does grant access to legitimately summoning some of the most broken Extra Deck monsters. Is that a problem? No. If you can stop Instant Fusion than you're doing just fine anyway. Norden is a great card and has been since inception. As such it will score well until banned or nerfed.  

Score: 4.5/5

Art: /5 I don't remember what it looks like because it's always used for something else.
