Extreme Force: Black or White

February 1st, 2018

Extreme Force contains a ton of new Link Monsters, and among them are a bunch of Link Monsters for Deck themes both new and old! Today’s preview card is the missing Link of the Noble Knights – Isolde, Two Tales of the Noble Knights – a monster that you’ll soon find out you can use in just about any Warrior Deck you can think of!


Isolde, Two Tales of the Noble Knights is a Link Monster that requires 2 Warrior monsters in order to be Summoned. While Isolde is in the Extra Monster Zone, you’ll gain access to 2 more zones to Special Summon Extra Deck monsters to, thanks to its bottom-left and bottom-right Link Markers. Isolde only has 1600 ATK, but like many Link Monsters with lower ATK, it packs an effect that you’ll definitely want in any Warrior Deck! When you Link Summon Isolde, you’ll be able to add any Warrior monster from your Deck to your hand. The only downside is that you won’t be able to Normal Summon or Set it, Special Summon it, or activate its effects for the rest of the turn. Even with the downside, having access to any Warrior in your Deck is a great effect to include in your Extra Deck! Isolde’s second effect allows you to send any number of different Equip Spells to the GY, and then Special Summon a Warrior from your Deck with a Level equal to the number of sent cards. This effect works better in a Noble Knight Deck, but you might be able to make use of it in another Deck too, which we’ll explain below!

In a dedicated Noble Knight Deck, Isolde, Twin Tales of the Noble Knight allows you to search or Special Summon just about any monster in your Deck. Grab Noble Knight Brothers if you want to Special Summon a lot of Knights or reload your Deck, or stick to the regular combos with Noble Knight Medraut. With Brothers, Medraut, or Noble Knight Gawayn, you’ll be able to Special Summon Isolde with no problems at all! On top of that, Isolde’s second effect works wonders in a Noble Knight Deck, putting all of your Noble Arms into the Graveyard and Summoning any of your Noble Knights too! This, along with Glory of the Noble Knights give you more ways than ever to get precisely the Equip Spells you need onto your Artorigus Xyz Monster, and Isolde even helps you get more monsters onto the field to make that Xyz Summon happen. If you’re particularly ambitious, try returning those Noble Arms to your Deck with Noble Knight Brothers, then send them again to Summon another Noble Knight with Isolde on your next turn!

Outside of a Noble Knight Deck, you’ll definitely be able to find a place for Isolde, Two Tales of the Noble Knights. In Monarch Decks, you’ll be able to combine Super Quantum Red Layer and Edea the Heavenly Squire to easily Link Summon Isolde, adding another Red Layer to your hand for next turn and potentially adding some banished “Monarch” cards to your hand! Isolde will be able to boost this strategy even further in the future! In a HERO Deck, search out Elemental HERO Honest Neos since you can use its effect even on your opponent’s turn, or just search for a key monster like Elemental HERO Shadow Mist to use later! There are plenty of Warriors to choose from, so whether you’re looking for a new combo or just want to search out Marauding Captain, Isolde, Two Tales of the Noble Knights will make it happen.

Isolde, Two Tales of the Noble Knights helps Warrior Decks from past and present find the right monster for the job. Even without any Equip Spells, every Warrior Deck from Black Luster Solider to Ninjas will want access to Isolde’s powerful searching effect! If you’re a Warrior fan or want to build a Warrior Deck of your own, you’ll definitely want to get your hands on Isolde from Extreme Force!
