  • Self protection.
  • Protects all Summoned Skull you control.
  • Floats into Summoned Skull.


  • Can be costly to summon.
  • Low defense stat.
  • Effect only protects monsters specifically named Summoned Skull.


Summoned Skull

Both of Archfiend’s Call’s effects only with monsters specifically named Summoned Skull, monsters of the same archetype like Toon Summoned Skull do not count. Luckily he changes his name to Summoned Skull while on the field, so at the very least he has self-protection.

Changing his name to Summoned Skull will give him access to specific support such as Makiu, the Magical Mist.


A well supported Fiend archetype. In particular Archfiend decks have a lot of revival options for you to revive your Archfiend’s Call. You can use Archfiend Palabyrinth while Archfiend’s Call is treated as Summoned Skull to summon a Summoned Skull from your deck.

You still get to special summon Demon no Shoukan though. If you removed her backrow you could try to econ take as a cheap shot counter for her cheap shot.
If you're having trouble beating the Wisel tower monster in a Riding Duel where you need to synchro summon to gain speed spell skills but he absorbs synchro monsters, this is the solution. He can't target it and if he makes the idiotic mistake of sacrificing his own ace monster to crash into it, you still get to summon a weaker 2500 beater. But just keep synchro summoning into this tough demon and building the meter so you can destroy the CPU's cards.

I have been getting blasted by Desperado Dragon. Shouldn't the card prevent that from happening?

Desperado doesn't target
Synchros ruined Yugioh. The 1 tuner 1 non tuner means that players can just splash multiple over powered synchros in their extra deck that has nothing to do with the archetype they are running. If all synchro monsters had to be specific to a card type and/or attribute I could understand.

That's why all Synchro decks are top tier! Right?

Synchro is actually one of the worst summoning mechanic due to the restriction lmao (needs both a tuner and non-tuner whose total level match the synchro monster's level).

Compare it with Xyz that can use any monster with the same level, or Link that can use any monster period.

Pendulum's power level would have been as low as Synchro had they not release cards that search other Pendulum....

Synchro deck can easily brick, unlike other summoning mechanic. With Synchro decks, if you happen to draw only Tuners or only non-Tuners, you're basically already dead.

That's why even in OCG/TCG no one play pure Synchro anymore, thanks to Xyz and Link existing. Xyz and Link means if the deck bricks at least it still can summon something else from the extra deck.

Current top tier deck is Darklord, Desperado and Invoked Neos, which are not synchro deck. Six Sams is still good but they might fall down if Konami decide to hit World Legacy Clash
This has to be a new record, Archfiend's Call just entered TCG roughly two weeks ago.

Nice, now you gotta get 3 summoned skull and support cards to make a deck out of it

Let me guess... this doesn't work with the Red-Eyes Summoned Skull, right?

Yep, it doesn't. Target protection only works with itself and the original vanilla Summoned Skull, while the special summon effect only works with the original vanilla Summoned Skull.
