This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by paying 500 Life Points when both "Andro Sphinx" and "Sphinx Teleia" on your side of the field are destroyed at the same time; then you can Special Summon this monster from your hand or Deck. When this card is Special Summoned successfully, pay 500 Life Points to increase the ATK of this card by 3000 points until the end of the End Phase.
These cards can be used to remove Pyramid of Light to trigger the condition to summon Theinen, at the same time eliminate most of your opponent’s backrow. If Wild Tornado is also destroyed, you can destroy opponent’s face up monster as well. Since Pyramid of Light is destroyed, results in Andro Sphinx and Sphinx Teleia being destroyed and removed from play simultaneously, you are now able to Special Summon Theinen. Theinen is able to end the game easier since there are no backrows to worry about, but still susceptible to Sphere Kuribohs. Since it costs Life Points to get this far, it is suggested you have some healing cards in your deck as well.
Because Pyramid of light need to be "removed" and not just "destroyed" as they said in this guide
This guy only looks powerful in Pyramid of Light movie (Pyramid of Light as added effect of negating God cards presence which is not even in the new pack's description). When it comes to duel links, good luck in getting it out. Everything fails to ECON take and SRH and those wall traps, and oh jolly floodgate.
Naa, if you destroy Pyramid of Light, it banishes the sphinxes for Thienen. There are combos for destroying your spell for the cost of a trap on your field to get Thienen out. Has to either be a glitch or they nerfed it mang.
Sphynx stats are great but....WHAT IS THE POINT KONAMI IF YOU HAVENT LIMITED SHIT LIKE SUPER RUSH, e-CON OR TRIBUTE TO THE DOOM WTF WHY ARE YOU RELEASING CARDS THAT ARE NOT EVEN IMMUNE TO THE SHIT THAT A MAJORITY OF SPELLS AND TRAPS PEOPLE ARE PLAYING HUH. PPL GO THROUGH ALL THE TROUBLE JUST TO GET SPHYNX AND BAM TRIBUTE TO THE DOOM or super rush eliminate those cards and we can actually start seeing monsters and archtypes do what the they are supposed to do, some of th emost powerful monsters in the game fall victim to the sluttiest most abused cards in the game no wonder ppl rather play against AI the multiplayer is littered with bullshit that prevents you from even playing a archtype
Yeah. In the OCG, all those cards are not that broken since there are many ways to prevent/counter them. However, in duel links, the card pool is not big enough, making it really hard to counter them. Really sucks
Today tried to use parallel twister to destroy the only enemy back row and the pyramid of light and thus the two beasts for otk. Still nothing popped up to summon this card. I surrendered next second. It sucks. Wonder when this bug will be fixed.. thought it would be ok since mini box came out.
Just tried the combo myself. Still not fixed. Is there maybe a “timing” thing? Not 100% on the rulings for Theinen.
I came up with a pure strategy to pop this guy out of the deck but every time this doesn't work, it asks if i would like to activate an effect but no card shows up and am forced to not activate anything, is this a bug because i think this deck could be pretty fun to use
two pronged attack works great, thunder crash is also a good one and then fire king island, works better than most people think. Actually win some games in KOG right now but this deck would be so much better if he can come right from the deck
I also use a very similar deck that revolves around taking them out using fire king island however I am experiencing the same issue you are trying to summon from the deck. A lot of people think this will be fixed when the new pack gets released but highly doubt it.
