Dark Saviors: Flying Furtress

May 31st, 2018

When you have a job and you can’t trust just anyone to get it done, you get the best.  And these guys?  They’re the best you can find, and they’re Fur Hire!


When you stumble across one monster Fur Hire, you’ll likely come across a lot more of them!   Once per turn, the Level 2 Beast Donpa, Marksman Fur Hire can Special Summon any monster Fur Hire from your hand except another copy of Donpa.  Also, once per turn, if another monster Fur Hire is Special Summoned, Donpa, Marksman Fur Hire can destroy any face-up card on the field.  Donpa’s partner, Recon, Scout Fur Hire has almost the same stats and effects, except Recon destroys Set cards.  All of the Level 4 and lower monsters Fur Hire have the Special Summon effect and another effect that activates when another one is Special Summoned, so getting enough of them in your hand to Special Summon the others, filling up your field of monsters Fur Hire, letting you take your strategy in one of a few different directions…


With so many monsters on the field, you can Link Summon a wide variety of monsters including popular Link 4 Monsters like Firewall Dragon, Borreload Dragon or Saryuja Skull Dread.  While the lower Level monsters Fur Hire are great for Link Summons, there are a few higher-Level monsters Fur Hire that you’ll want to stick around to do your dirty work.  First up is Wiz, Sage Fur Hire.  When Wiz is Special Summoned, you can gain 500 LP for each monster Fur Hire you control with a different name.  If your opponent activates a Spell/Trap card or effect, Wiz’s effect will let you discard a card Fur Hire to negate the activation.  This is most effective against Normal Spells and Traps since they go to the Graveyard after the chain resolves, but if you negate an effect activation of a card that was already face-up on the field (like a Mythical Beast Master Cerberus in the Pendulum Zone), the effect activation is negated but the card stays where it is, so make sure your mercenary is picking off your opponent’s cards before that point.


Wiz hits your opponent’s Spells and Traps, but Rafale, Champion Fur Hire can negate monster effect activations by discarding a card Fur Hire.  When Rafale is Special Summoned, you can excavate cards equal to the number of other monsters Fur Hire you control, then you choose any one of those cards to add to your hand.  If you control a lot of monsters Fur Hire, this effect becomes just as good, if not better, than Pot of Duality without the drawback of giving up your Special Summons for the turn!

We’ve seen a number of monsters Fur Hire, but we haven’t seen their tactics or their hiding place.  Stay tuned for more info on the monsters Fur Hire!
