  • Level 4 monster with 1800 attack.
  • Effect to increase your other monster's attack can be used during battle phase.
  • Significant attack increase (and decrease), and not 1 turn only.
  • Getting destroyed by battle, or card effect will let him special summon a Fire Warrior-type monster, regardless of level.


  • Attack decrease will last until it gets destroyed.
  • Can only target other Warrior type monster for the attack increase.
  • Effect to special summon can only be done when it gets destroyed.

Tips, related cards, skills

Knight of Red Lotus

One of the special summonable monster from the Swordsman's effect. Even if your deck does not contain a lot of normal monsters, being able to special summon a 2100 attack monster after it gets destroyed will prevent you from being defenseless.

Phoenix Gearfried

Special summon Phoenix Gearfried will let you normal summon it on your next turn, enabling its effects right away. Can be very strong if you can send Phoenix Gearfried to the graveyard early, and your deck has many equip cards to make good use out of his effects.

The Warrior Returning Alive

A simple card to bring back Blue Flame Swordsman from the graveyard, especially since he is level 4 and easily summonable.

This guy and Obnoxious Celtic Guard make quite a duo. You buff Celtic Guard with the +600 (permanent) atk and now he's an immune to battle monster (you still get the battle damage, sadly) but that's one way to use both
Good card but yet to find a home in any competitive deck.
nice! second copy!
With the condition of 'destroyed by your opponent's card' does that mean you can attack your opponent with BFS, have it be destroyed by your opponents monster card due to higher atk, then use its special summon effect?

Not many effects that can special summon effect monsters; or it's very specific such as Fire-Warrior.

Amazoness Swordswoman and Boxer seem like good supports with The A. Forces and Sorcerous Spell Wall

Doom Shaman and Card Guard to keep cards from being bestroyed; Fiend doesn't play into The A. Forces but Shaman does which can special summon Sphere Kuriboh and Card Guard once they're in the graveyard.

I'm using Magical Something with ECON, Half Shut and SRH to cycle through those cards.

Riryoku and Rising Energy for atk boost

Cost Down and Double Summon are also very nice since Shaman is a Gemini as is PGfiend

Just waiting for a low lvl fire Warrior or a nice 5-6* Fire Warrior that is played with Cost Down.
Can only Special Summon Phoenix Gearfried and Knight of the Red Lotus, but that's still pretty good. Plus, 1800 ATK is 1800 ATK.

There's also the ATK transfer effect that can make your Gearfried a 3k(or 3.6k) beater

This card has to be banished from the Graveyard to Special Summon Gearfried, so unless you find another way to get Gearfried on the field, you can't boost its ATK with that effect.

The Gearfried I'm talking about is the 4* Gearfried. Activate effect on your turn to make Gearfried ATK 2400, then on opponent's battle phase activate it again to raise Gearfried's ATK to 3000. If its somehow survive, you can use it once again for 3600 ATK beater

Oh yeah, that works. There's too many Gearfried's, lol.
Now that warrior is becoming a viable archetype, this card would be a staple in a lot of decks, thanks to his 1800 atk and his boosting effect.

Also, note that you can attack with blue flame swordsman, and then activate his effect to boost another warrior on your field.
