Default Dark Highlander

http://shriektcg.twoday.net/stories/14877463/

Dark Highlander
DARK/Fiend/Synchro - Effect/7/2800/2300
1 Fiend-Type Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner Fiend-Type monsters.
While this card is face-up on the field, neither player can Synchro Summon. Once per turn, you can select 1 monster your opponent controls equipped with an Equip Card. Destroy all Equip Cards equipped to that monster, and inflict 400 damage to your opponent for each destroyed card.


The only viable Fiend deck are Fableds.

I guess fableds can pull it out easy enough. It's really not that great though, as the only decks which use equips (to my knowlage) are dragunities (which'll never be on your turn) and solidopplejunk - which'll have OTKed you if you let them get that far. As for the synchro lock....it's kinda meh. Otherwise it's good.

He's fantastic for my fiend deck (based around Trade-In, archfiend empress, Dark Necrofear and Puppet Master). It only uses level 1 tuners. Puppet Master + stygian security = this guy. Amazing

There can be only one.

Also, Infernities. Avenger + 2x Necromancer.

You are not using it for that part of the effect.

While this card is face-up on the field, neither player can Synchro Summon.

Many decks rely on Synchros in the meta. How would a Synchro centric deck deal with this guy? They would need to draw into some removal pretty quick.

That is what makes this guy good. Having 2800 beater status does not hurt either, though.

I think he's saying you won't have a chance to summon this guy before you get swarmed.

I would probably use this in a Stun Deck...notably, Fiend Stun.

Basically, getting this, and Stardust out, means good lock.

If this came out I'd have to throw a couple Tuners into my Fiend Anti-Meta deck.

If you're using it for that, use vanities' fiend or similar. If you have a fiend-based synchro engine it's fair, but ouside of a beater it doesn't do much more than easier options.

Can‘t see any reason why Highlander should be summoned over something like Vanity‘s Fiend.

Yes, Highlander has bigger attack and doesn‘t use Main Deck space, but Fiend just does it (summon negation part) better. And what equips could this destroy? Gearframe equipped to Fortress?

Besides, if we ever get 2800+ATK Exceed Monster, Highlander will be even easier to get around.

God, a thread about this guy comes up all the time and everyone asks the same questions.

The deck that really loves him is my Trade-In Puppet Master deck. I synchro him by tribute summoning Puppet Master and synching with a stygian security/Sinister Sprocket.

When I synchro in that deck, I prefer to synchro a fiend rather than a non-fiend because not only will it be fodder for Dark Necrofear, but it will also be a target for archfiend empress. Chaos King Archfiend already serves this purpose, but in case I have no need for his effet, dark highlander is better

I think he meant with Raven as his original lvl 2. But if you were using his effect Raven + Beiige--> Highlander

Big Bang Shot would be a nice complement to Dark Highlander - Do Damage AND RFP their monster.....

WINNING!!! Been wanting this guy for a long while; he'll be a great compliment to the Fiend Structure.
