Pendulum Evolution: The Harmony of Time and Space

June 15th, 2017

Pendulum Evolution breathes new life into Pendulum Monsters, and one of the biggest boosts goes to the “Magician” Pendulum strategy which gets 2 monsters that can bring the Deck back to the forefront of competition: Harmonizing Magician and Timestar Magician! DontHarmMyEyes

Let’s start with Harmonizing Magician.  It’s a Spellcaster, Pendulum Monster and a Tuner, so right off the bat, Harmonizing Magician looks like a great fit for a Magician Pendulum Deck, which is fitting because it can’t be used as a Fusion, Synchro or Xyz Material unless all of the other materials are also Pendulum Monsters with “Magician” in their names.  Harmonizing Magician has a Pendulum Scale of 8, perfect for the “Magician” Pendulum strategy which contains Level 7 monsters like Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon and Xiangke Magician.  Its Pendulum Effect powers up all monsters you control by 100 ATK and DEF for every face-up Magician Pendulum in your Extra Deck, acting as a great late-game finisher.

You can’t Pendulum Summon Harmonizing Magician from your Extra Deck, but if you Pendulum Summon it from your hand, its effect will let you Special Summon any “Magician” Pendulum Monster from your Deck in Defense Position with its effects negated.  This lets you fill in the missing piece of a big Fusion, Synchro or Xyz Summon.  By bringing out a monster like Dragonpit Magician, you can combine it with another Level 7 monster like Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon to Xyz Summon Odd-Eyes Absolute Dragon (and when you use the monster as an Xyz Material, you’ll avoid the drawback of having the monster you Summoned with Harmonizing Magician be banished when it leaves the field.)  As a Level 4 Tuner, Harmonizing Magician can be used to Synchro Summon a wide range of monsters.  Combine Harmonizing Magician with the Level 3 Timegazer Magician to Synchro Summon the Level 7 Odd-Eyes Meteorburst Dragon, or you can use another Level 4 Monster to Summon Level 8 Synchro Monsters like PSY-Framelord Omega. For Xyz Summons, its Level of 4 makes it the perfect complement for an Xyz Summon with Wisdom-Eye Magician, Dragonpulse Magician or Xiangsheng MagicianTimeToStartTheMagic

And while there are a lot of Rank 4 Xyz Monsters you can Summon using Harmonizing Magician, there’s a new one that you’ll want to keep in mind: Timestar Magician is a Rank 4 Spellcaster Xyz Monster that requires 2 Level 4 “Magician” Pendulum Monsters – like Harmonizing Magician.  It must first be Xyz Summoned using the listed materials, so you can’t use a card effect to sneak it into play.  Once per turn, you can detach an Xyz Material to add a DARK Spellcaster-Type monster from your Deck, Graveyard or face-up Extra Deck to your hand.  In the “Magician” Pendulum strategy, there’s a bunch of good choices: Xiangke Magician, Timegazer Magician, Stargazer Magician and Dragoncaller Magician all fit the bill.  Outside of “Magician” Pendulums, the original Magician, the Dark Magician (and all of its alternate forms like Dark Magician of Chaos) are also good picks.  In a Deck using a mix of Pendulum Magicians, Odd-Eyes or Performapals, Timestar Magician can help you find one of your copies of Performapal Skullcrobat Joker, which in turn gives you access to nearly any monster in your Deck.

You can find these two Spellcasters in Pendulum Evolution, available on June 23rd!
