Countdown to Infernity: 4…
May 1st and The Shining Darkness are fast approaching as the Countdown to Infernity continues! Infernity Decks don’t need to worry about playing with no cards in hand because they can easily get any card they need out of the Deck with Infernity Archfiend. It lets you add any “Infernity” card (not just monsters, Spells and Traps too!) from your Deck to your hand when you Special Summon it!
Infernity Archfiend has another effect that lets you Special Summon it from your hand if you draw it when you don’t have any cards in your hand. You can also Special Summon it from your Graveyard with Infernity Launcher and Infernity Mirage. These cards can both Special Summon 2 “Infernity” monsters from your Graveyard, and they’re vital to your really huge combos. Remember, every time you Special Summon Infernity Archfiend, you get another “Infernity” card from your Deck.
The basic combo you’ll use to Synchro Summon is to activate Infernity Launcher or Summon Infernity Mirage and then activate the card’s effect to Special Summon Infernity Archfiend and Infernity Necromancer from your Graveyard.
When Infernity Archfiend is Special Summoned, use its effect to get an Infernity Launcher from your Deck so that you can do the combo again after you Synchro Summon a monster.
Now, Set or activate your Infernity Launcher so that you don’t have any cards in your hand anymore. That lets you use the effect of Infernity Necromancer to Special Summon a Tuner monster from your Graveyard and Synchro Summon a monster. The monster you can Summon depends on which Tuner monster you use!
The combos above just scratch the surface! With an Infernity Deck, this combo can be used to Synchro Summon a monster of any Level from 4 to 9! Here’s a rundown of all the combinations you can use:
Infernity Archfiend (4) + Infernity Necromancer (3) + Infernity Beetle (2) = Level 9 Synchro Monster.
Infernity Archfiend + Infernity Necromancer + Infernity Avenger (1) = Level 8 Synchro Monster
Level 6 Synchro Monster + Infernity Avenger = Level 7 Synchro Monster
Infernity Archfiend + Infernity Beetle = Level 6 Synchro Monster
Infernity Archfiend + Infernity Avenger = Level 5 Synchro Monster
Infernity Necromancer + Infernity Avenger = Level 4 Synchro Monster.
Before you can do this killer combo, you’ll need to get all the right monsters in your Graveyard. To be safe, it’s good to try to have Infernity Archfiend, Infernity Necromancer, Infernity Beetle, and Infernity Avenger all in the Graveyard so you can get any Synchro Monster you need. Infernity Inferno is a Trap Card that lets you discard monsters that you’ve drawn and send more “Infernity” monsters from your Deck to the Graveyard. Use it to make sure you have all the cards you need in the right place!
Infernity Beetle is especially cool because you can Tribute it to Special Summon the rest of your Infernity Beetles from the Deck. Since Infernity Beetle is a Tuner, that’ll let you Synchro Summon 2 Synchro Monsters at the same time! It also helps you use some of the Infernity cards that’ll help you win your toughest Duels! Next time we’ll talk about the cards you’ll use to handle common situations like “What do I do if I draw more monsters than I can use?” and “How can I get around cards like Royal Oppression?”
