Swashbuckler (Pirate Archetype)

Post by Asgore Dreemurr on Sun Mar 13, 2016 11:21 pm

I promised to make this archetype ever since I made the Werewolf archetype.

This deck mainly focuses on stealing from your opponent. The deck is meant to swarm and maintain heavy field control with monsters that have relatively low attack and support the bosses.

Landlubber, Swashbuckler of The North Sea
Level 4
ATK 1100/DEF 500
EARTH
Warrior/Pendulum/Effect
Scale 3/3
Pendulum Effect: Extra deck monsters you control are unaffected by spell card effects.
Monster Effect: When this card is normal summoned, add 1 "Swashbuckler" card from your deck to your hand. Once per turn, when a spell card is activated, look at your opponent's hand; if there is a normal spell card among the cards in your opponents hand, add 1 of them to your hand. If there is none, discard 1 random card from your hand.


Thatch, Swashbuckler of The East Sea
Level 4
ATK 1400/500
EARTH

Scale 5/5
Pendulum Effect: "Swashbuckler" monsters you control gain 500 attack for each card added from your opponent's hand or deck to your hand this turn.
Effect: This card cannot be normal summoned or set. Must be special summoned by effect of another "Swashbuckl" card, or pendulum summoned while 1 or more cards in your pendulum zones are "Swashbuckler" cards. If this card is special summoned, target one card in your opponent's hand, then apply one of these effects depending on the type of card;
Monster - Banish it.
Spell - Send it to the graveyard.
Trap - Set it to your side of the field.

Didn't notice but that field spell. Blackship of Corn was a ruse this entire time. It really was a pirate ship.

Bruh, you can basically steal all your opponent's backrow and use it yourself. You can solemn like 10 times.

This gives me an idea. How would you feel about a custom archetype contest?

I guess? I'd submit my Moonbornes. Most consistent Archetype I've ever made.

Alrighty, time for some constructive criticism. I'll basically just be going over cards that I think are too strong. Cards that are underpowered or just right won't be mentioned. Now let's get to it:

Thatch, Swashbuckler of The East Sea

This card is absolutely ridiculous. We have things like Trap Dustshoot and Confiscation banned for a reason. This may be random, but it banishes monsters and steals traps, which is absolutely insane. This card needs a nerf and a restriction, seeing as this card can just be run generically in like every pendulum deck ever.

Ronin, Swashbuckler of The West Sea

This one just seems a bit too open to abuse. Making it archetype-specific or making it negate the summoned monster's effects would balance it out pretty easily.

Skwaky, The Swashbuckler's Parrot

"look at your opponent's deck" WHAT THE FUCK

Sparrow, Swashbucklin' First Mate

You can probably just remove the battle immunity. The effect is good enough as is.

Bluebeard, The Swashbucklin' Rival Captain

No need to have this be able to activated twice. Makes for stupidly good plays. Just throw on another effect, some inter-deck synergy or something.

The Seven Seas

I get the thematic, but this card's second and third effect have literally no synergy, and the first effect is way too situational. This card isn't overpowered per se, it just makes no fucking sense.

Swashbuckler's Sword

Bump the ATK gain down to say, 700, and make it have a Saqlifice-esque effect of getting its effect when it's sent to the graveyard instead of it being sort of like a Wonder Wand deal (on the note of wonder wand, maybe send both the equip and the spell to the graveyard and keep the current effect as is).

Shiver Me Timbers!

This is insane. A banish all summon negate for one tribute in a pendulum deck. Seriously, make this restricted in some way. Like, change the monster(s) to monster.

Swashbuckling For Gold

A OPT Mind Control and BTS as a continuous trap... fuck no.

The Swashbucklers' Treasure Map

Seems like a cool idea, but it's too loaded with effects. JUST the first effect is insanely strong, seeing as it's able to recycle any spell (Soul Charge, Solemn Warning, etc.) generically.Take off the second effect entirely and put some serious restrictions on the first one.

Swashbuckler's Solemn Secret

Change this to a normal trap and make it only able to target normal traps and you're good.
