  • Protection against effects during battle.
  • Easy to summon.


  • Vulnerable outside of battle.



You can boost Armades’ attack to make it more threatening during battle with high attack and protection.


Armades can be Synchro summoned easily with Junk Synchron, Normal summon Junk Synchron and then use his effect to revive level-2 monster from your graveyard, then use them both as Syncrhro material. There are also a few level-1 Tuners that have inherent special summoning effects. Pair them with level-4 monsters to Synchro summon.

Fiend Support

Here are some cards that support Fiend monsters. If ever Armades is destroyed you can use Doom Shaman or The Puppet Magic of Dark Ruler to revive him.

Call of the Archfiend can also be used to revive Armades while simultaneously loading your graveyard for effects. Dark Ruler Ha Des negates the effects of monsters destroyed by your Fiend-type monsters.

literally happens to every card that is more generic in requirements.
Also the fact nerokius needs 3 monsters in a 3 monster field game. Come on think already.

With card such as unknown synchron, this card can be splashed in almost every deck with generic 4* monster. This card and catastor will be a must have card for almost every deck in certain situation.

Those cards can affect this monster, but they cannot be activated when that monster declares an attack, or is attacked by another monster.

A good example is when you use |Forbidden Chalice| on this card preemptively (before entering battle phase), and then activate the traps in response to the monster's attack declaration.

Wall and ruin can affect this card if another one of the opponent's monsters attacks
armades cannot destroy and negate monsters that cannot be destroyed by battle and reflect damage effect of amazon swordswoman...
in short armades cannot negate effects that are passive like reflect damage and monsters that cannot be destroy effect

Which anyone that reads Armades could figure out, since effects like Amazoness Swords Woman's don't activate in the first place.

What happens if I attack armades with ua slugger ?armades says when this card is attacked , meaning it activates when I attack ,correct ?does my ua slugger effect of no cards activate when this card attacks until the damage step is not negated cause of armades? And also does slugger effect even activate or it's just considered continuous ?
fiend but light type seem legit lol

No, you’re opponent will just activate it before your battle phase.
So i made a deck with phantom skyblaster+cosmic compass utilizing natural tune and creature seizures along with skyblaster comboing into a free dd sprite for easy lv 5 and 8s. Stardust and armades. Just totally wrecked a amazoness swordswoman 🔥 deck with armades

Finally some generic syncros and i do like the built in Anti Magic Arrows effect but i only see this being used as a 5th slot for extra decks in maybe a gusto, genex, x sabr"fun" deck but this is still in the top 5 best cards of the box
