View Full Version : Metalsilver Armor
01-14-2006, 10:29 AM
While looking threw my card collection for equips cards I can search out via Iron Blacksmith Kotetsu, I came across an interesting card that never sees play.
As long as you control the monster equipped with this card, your opponent cannot use the effect of a Spell, Trap, or Effect Monster that targets 1 monster, except the equipped monster.
I really want to unleash the full potential of this equip card since it can stop a whole lotta cards played in this format.
Sakuretsu Armor, Call of the Haunted, Premature Burial, Snatch Steal, Book of Moon, Brain Control, Newdoria and Exiled Force couldnt be used while Metalsilver Armor is equipped to one of your monsters.
This card of course has a serious downside, the monster you equip Metalsilver Armor with is still affected by cards that target. Im still trying to find the perfect monster that I can equip the Armor to so I can start building the deck (im consider Guardian Kay'est right now).
Anyone else think this card has potential?

Equip it to a Jinzo or a Tinzo. At lease a monster with a big attack. Unless you want to put it on a Don Zaloong.

I do not think that Guardian Kay'est would work with your strategy because its text reads "This card is unaffected by any Spell Cards." thus Metalsilver Armor would not apply its effect. It would be an effect similar to The Legendary Fisherman.
C9XGMR: That is not the idea of this post, I believe Centric is looking for monsters that have natural negation that will work in combination with Metalsilver Armor to protect all monsters on the field.
I will see if I can find my Metalsilver deck I constructed a long time ago. Initially monsters that I would explore using Metalsilver Armor:
Gora Turtle of Illusion (the key card in my Metalsilver deck, with Umiiruka it can be a fairly tough customer)
Tyrant Dragon (negates traps and double attack, although targeted trap negation is rather useless without Ring of Destruction)
Chaos Command Magician (negates monster effects + 2400 attack)
Archfiends (if lucky could negate everything)
Fiend Skull Dragon (flip effect and trap negation)
Silent Swordsman LV3 (spell negation)
It is a great annoyance that Freed the Matchless General does not have an 'opponent's' in front of Spell Card.
Edit: I found my Gora/Metalsilver Deck (I have not tested it in a while so it might be a little out-of-date)

3x Gora Turtle of Illusion
3x Piranha Army
3x Mother Grizzly

2x Wave Motion Cannon/Smashing Ground
1x Dark Hole
1x Heavy Storm

1x Swords of Revealing Light
1x Mystical Space Typhoon
1x Snatch Steal
3x Sakuretsu Armor
2x Solemn Judgment/Spiritual Water Art - Aoi

Silent Swordsman LV5
This card is unaffected by your opponent's Spell Cards. If this card successfully attacks your opponent's Life Points directly, during your next Standby Phase, send this face-up card to the Graveyard to Special Summon 1 "Silent Swordsman LV7" from your hand or Deck.
Elemental Hero Wildheart
This card is unaffected by the effects of Trap Cards.
Looks like you could use a few in a warrior deck.

Sakuretsu Armor doesn't target. All the rampant removal doesn't target, which is exactly what makes handling it so difficult. I want to love this card, but it has no cards to work against. The real threats you want to control with this card never target.

Sakuretsu DOES Target, only cards in the current meta that does'nt target are DD assailant, Mirror Force, Smashing Ground, DD Warrior Lady and Torrential Tribute. Almost all cards used in the previous and current format are targeting cards.
Additional Note: Please understand game mechanics prior to posting such a statement in order to avoid confusion for younger/inexperienced players.
Edit: Thanks for pointing my speling error!

I'm gonna assume you meant doesn't target, right.
You might want to edit that "in order to avoid confusion for younger/inexperienced".

Why did someone post on this old topic? Im saying that and im the person who started the topic :p .

No, you're right. Sakuretsu Targets. I'm so use to removal not targeting that I forgot there is 1 that does. Wide Spread Ruin, Mirror Force, Bottomless Trap Hole, Trap Hole, Torrential Tribute, Smashing Ground, Fissure, Hammer Shot, etc, etc...

actually, I think Trap Hole does target. Bottomless does not though.
