    What the hell? Konami suddenly cares about Rituals all at once?

    I'm going to be really disappointed at Konami of America if this card isn't officially named "Ritual Summoned Skull".

    We're in the middle of the Link craze, so I think an executive said "make more blue cards" and the card designer interpreted it wrong.

    And we Archfiend players cry once again, because Konami can't seem to make good support for us... First Masterking, now this crap...

    ...I dunno what to say to that. I think you may be misinterpreting some things.

    That card designer might just be my hero.

    Here goes my hope of a good LV6 Archfiend monster to use for Archfiend Black Skull.

    If only this card treated itself as a Normal Monster while in the Deck, have good effects AND be able to be Ritual Summon from the Grave.

    Feels like that's asking for bit too much, though.

    What am I misinterpreting? I'm just tired of seeing cards with "Archfiend" in the name that do nothing to help the Deck.

    Well, that depends on what "Archfiend" Deck you are wanting to get support. Keep in mind, things like Summoned Skull were things long before Archfiends even became an Archetype, and "Chess"-Archfiends were the original version.

    To these ends, I see getting upset for them not releasing support for the version of the Archfiend Deck you wanted to be feel like a misinterpretation of things. Especially so since that's not a new concept, the card still technically supports Archfiends due to it supporting Fiends in general, even if with the somewhat specific nature of how it does so, and we just got Call of the Archfiend not too long ago.

    I say let Ritual Summoned Skull be. It's a Ritual retrain of one of Yugi's (and the game's) most iconic cards that evokes its namesake into its aesthetic. I think it's okay that it isn't trying to be anything more. It doesn't really need to be.
