Pros

  • Can be Special Summoned from your Hand if your opponent controls 2 or more monsters with the same attribute.
  • Can designate 1 of your opponent’s monsters and stop it from activating its effects for that turn. This effect can be used once per turn during your main phase.
  • Good ATK and DEF stats.

Cons

  • There can only be 1 of this monster on the Field.
  • Can be slower to summon if your opponent does not use monsters with same attribute.

Tips

  • This monster may effectively disrupt monsters with continuous effects, such as Jinzo with Trap lockdown effect, or Silent Magician Lv 8 with Spell immunity effects, or Wiz, Sage Fur Hire that can negate your Spell/Trap activation, allowing you to plan your counterplays.
  • However, this monster lacks further synergy with other archetypes therefore it is still a challenge to use this card effectively.

Speed Summon

These are some of the fastest way to Normal/Tribute Summon Alector. Soul Exchange uses your opponent’s monster as Tribute cost to Tribute summon Alector, but you cannot attack during that turn. You can pay 1000 LP using Mausoleum of the Emperor to Normal Summon Alector. You can Special Summon Dynatherium from your Hand, and Tribute it for Alector. Berlineth, the Firestorm Vassal requires you to discard 1 card to Special Summon it to the Field, but you gain advantage by tributing it for Alector, you can view your opponent’s hand and banish 1 card from it till the End Phase.

Combo

You can activate Cost Down and discard Gusto Griffin as cost, to allow you to Normal Summon Alecto to the Field. Gusto Griffin’s effect activates at the same time to allow you to Special Summon another “Gusto” monster to the Field from your Deck.

What I wonder is, if you haven't used it's effect yet, can you use it to stop cards like Magic Cylinder and Mirror Force?

Nope, Alector´s effect can´t either be used during the Battle Phase nor as a response to another card´s activation.

Use with revival gift maybe???

Hi, can somebody tell me if this card has a glitch or is there a rule I don't know about?
Everytime I want to special summon this card on my first turn (and duel's second turn) after my opponent summoned and special summoned two or three monsters of which at least two of them have the same attribute - I can't special summon this card, I can only normal summon another monster, and if my opponent doesn't beat me after that I can special summon this card on my second (duel's fourr turb), plus normal summon another mobster. This only happens on my first and duel's second turn, all conditions are fulfilled and my oponent doesn't have a monster or card that stopped me from special summoning this card on my first turn....

Yes, as I said all conditions are fulfilled, I wouldnt know they were the same attribute if they weren't face up

My monsters don't prevent me from summoning him, I have this deck for a while, I know my monsters well, it's not even my oponent monsters, I double checked, and while those monsters and my monsters were still on the field I summoned this card on my next turn (I saved myself using Windstorm of Etaqua) nothing on the field changed except the turn I tried to summon him

Maybe more testing and probably a screenshot for us?

If it really is bug then you need to report to konami. It's getting a lot of bug lately

Not at all.
This card is amazing in both most common meta decks - Fur Hire and Amazoness.
Note that it can negate the effect of ANY face-up card on the field, not just monster card effect.
So, you can use it to negate the effect of cards such as Wiz, Onslaught or U.A. Stadium, AND it's easily Special summoned so it doesn't take up your Normal summon for that turn.

Good against Amazoness (most Earth attr.) and negate Amaz. Onslaught, Destiny-Masked Hero (most Dark attr.), SSA (most Water attr.) and negate SSA itself, Archfiend (most Dark attr.) and negate Call of the Archfiend, Hazy-Fire Fist (most Fire attr.) and negate FF-Gyokkou, Ancient Gear (most Earth attr.)

Of course, I just had to pull this thing first instead of widespread ruin.

Can someone explain to me why a card like Alien Warrior can still use its effect when destroyed even after being negated by Alector. Thanks.

Alector negates a card effect while that card is on the field. Alien Warrior left the field when it was destroyed, so it was able to place counters.
