Pros

  • Good stats.
  • Heals your LP.
  • Protects Psychic monsters from targeting Spell/Trap effects.

Cons

  • Can be costly to summon.
  • Protection effect only works for single target effects.
  • Heavy LP cost for protection effect

Tips

Summoning

Use a level-5 monster that can easily be Special Summoned along with a level-3 Tuner to make Thought Ruler Archfiend. For example, you can Special Summon The Tricky and Normal Summon Dark Resonator.

You can Normal Summon Trident Warrior and with his effect Special Summon Delta Tri. Delta Tri can turn Trident Warrior into a level-5 monster then you can make Thought Ruler Archfiend.

Similar Effects

Here are some monsters with a similar effect that heals its user’s LP equal to the stat of the monster it destroyed. The strongest monsters with this effect might be Thought Ruler Archfiend and Guardian Angel Joan which are both difficult to summon without their own dedicated strategy.

DNA Surgery

Use this to change all your monsters to Psychic-types so that they can be protected by Thought Ruler Archfiend.

Lava Golem

Summon Lava Golem in defense position to get rid of 2 of your opponent’s monsters. Then use Thought Ruler Archfiend to destroy Lava Golem and heal 3000 LP.

Aromage

Aromage is a deck that really appreciates heal effects to help them trigger their own effects. Thought Ruler Archfiend can be useful as a beater which also heals in this deck.

Am I missing something. Thought Ruler Archfiend should be able to negate Dark Magical Circle (indeed it used to) but lately my Archfiend keeps getting banished without the effect activating? I can't see how that could be...

You could be missing the timing if they do something after activating circle's effect.

No dude, actually circle being already on the field its banishing effect serves as continuous effect. They don't activate the card when banish a card, and unfortunately archfiend applies only on activations. It would have won alone the dm natchup

let me guess, either they're not on the field, or their total Level is not 8, or you used something that has a restriction in Synchro Summoning (some Tuner can only be used for certain Synchro, for example)
