Archfiend Spell/Trap

Archfiend Commander only requires you to destroy an Archfiend card not specifically an Archfiend monster so destroying Spell/Trap cards might be better for maintaining board presence.

Destruction Targets

Destroy these Archfiend monsters when you special summon Archfiend Commander to trigger their effects. Archfiend Cavalry and Archfiend Empress lets you revive monsters when they are destroyed. Trance Archfiend lets you recover a banished DARK monster.

Revival Targets

Archfiends have a bunch of powerful high-leveled monsters you can revive with Archfiend Commander. Here are some examples.




Monster/Spell/Trap categoriesDestroys your Monster Cards
Summoning categoriesSpecial Summons itself from your hand / Special Summons from your Graveyard / Special Summon by its own condition once per turn
Attack categoriesCannot attack

the revival target SPECIFICALLY a LEVEL 6 so Emperor and queen does not apply. useless card?
cool card
I feel like this can make some cool plays, but there aren't any other lvl 6 archfiend cards in-game yet that are worth comboing yet. I feel this will be awesome when more archfiend cards are released, but right now its just pretty to look at.
Oh well, better get it while its here.

I tried it with Archfiend Giant as you can see in my post below this one
If you get 1 Archfiend Giant fast and you special Summon Archfiend Commander, use the "destroy 1 Archfiend" on the Giant and use the Giant's ability to negate said destruction (500lp cost, one time only) and you have 2 nice creatures
That's one nice combo, nothing to write home about but still!

You can tribute Commander using Giant or itself and revive the tributed monster the same turn but since it's defense position, it can't attack and it's vulnerable tho' but that's that

Red eyes Archfiend of lightning is very much worth getting it to combo
We still need archfiend heiress
So you summon an Archfiend Giant (lvl6) then this guy and you pay 500lp to keep the giant to have both monsters on the field? Cool!
(then they both disappear thanks to Dual Wield)

They aren't unless you have that counter trap for dual weild
Hmm, why not archfiend emperor on the field, tribute it for this, special summon emperor via its effect... Why u use Calvary when you just tribute summon it to revive emperor? I know its a bit hard getting emperor out...

Man, only cavalry and empress can bring back emperor when Commander is special summoned because he destroy, don't special summon another by self.
Archfiend commander is a really terrible card, it has no good uses with the current game right now
So anyone made an archfiend deck with this? Is there a new wombo combo with this card that makes archfiend "better" or a little bit more competitive lije tgey used to be?

There’s no good combo we are still missing heiress unfortunately, we need heiress to make any good combos.

Luckiest comeback vs Epic Yami Yugi.
