Have Your Hootcake, But Please Don’t Actually Eat It

May 21st, 2013

You’re going to think this new card is… a hoot! (Editor’s Note: We’re sorry… so very sorry. But Tyler isn’t!) …ahem. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, it’s time to introduce you to the best thing to happen to Madolche Decks since powdered sugar: Madolche Hootcake!


When this card in your possession is destroyed by your opponent’s card (either by battle or by card effect) and sent to your Graveyard: Shuffle this card into the Deck. You can target 1 monster in your Graveyard; banish it, and if you do, Special Summon 1 “Madolche” monster from your Deck, except “Madolche Hootcake”. You can only use this effect of “Madolche Hootcake” once per turn.

Like all of the Madolche you know and love, Madolche Hootcake will return to your Deck any time it’s destroyed by your opponent. But it’s Hootcake’s second ability that’s a real doozy: By banishing a monster from your Graveyard, you can Special Summon any Madolche you want, except another Hootcake, straight from your Deck!

Notice that you can banish any monster at all – it doesn’t have to be a Madolche! That’s great news, since you won’t normally have too many Madolches in the Graveyard anyway. With Hootcake, you can banish a spare Maxx “C” or Effect Veiler once it’s done its job.

Since Hootcake Special Summons straight from the Deck, you there are quite a few great combos to look out for. First, use it to Special Summon Madolche Messengelato. Despite its appearance, Hootcake is actually a Beast-type monster, which means you can search out any “Madolche” Spell or Trap with Messengelato’s effect. Get Madolche Chateau, and you’ll have an impressive pair of attackers that will go back to your hand if destroyed!

You can also have Hootcake bring out a Level 3 monster like Madolche Cruffsant, which you can then use with Hootcake for a Rank 3 Xyz Summon. Leviair the Sea Dragon is a great option, since it can Special Summon the monster that Hootcake banished. You can also make use of M-XSaber Invoker, which will give you yet another Special Summon from your Deck!

And last, but certainly not least, you’ll find that Hootcake is positively the best way to bring Madolche Puddingcess to the field. Previously, Madolche Mewfeuille was the best way to bring out Puddingcess. Unfortunately, that meant you had to rely on drawing Mewfeuille and Puddingcess together. With Hootcake, you just need a monster in the Graveyard to banish! And since Hootcake is helping to empty your Graveyard, Puddingcess will be that much closer to her lovely 800 ATK/DEF boost.

Madolche Hootcake is just one of the two new Madolche cards you’ll find in Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy. We’ll talk about the other, Madolche Nights, soon!
