No Tuners? Btw, they have good effects, but their stats suck. Or is that your purpose?

Card Name: Silent Strike Lizard
Card Type: Monster/Effect
Attribute: Dark
Type: Reptile
Level: 1
ATK/DEF: 800/0
Card Text: During either players' turn, you can flip this face-down card face-up in Attack or Defense Position to reduce the ATK and DEF of 1 monster your opponent controls to 0 until the end of the turn. When this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard while it is in Attack Position, you can flip 1 "Silent Strike" monster you control face-down.

This guy at level 1? Make him a level 2.Btw, my fix...

Card Name: Silent Strike Lizard
Card Type: Monster/Effect
Attribute: Dark
Type: Reptile
Level: 2
ATK/DEF: 900/0
Card Text: During either players' turn, you can flip this face-down card face-up in Attack or Defense Position to reduce the original ATK and DEF of 1 face-up monster your opponent controls to 0 until the end of the turn. When this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard while it is in Attack Position, you can flip 1 "Silent Strike" monster you control face-down.


Card Name: Silent Strike Serpent
Card Type: Monster/Effect
Attribute: Dark
Type: Reptile
Level: 2
ATK/DEF: 800/200
Card Text: You can flip this face-down card face-up in Attack or Defense Position to negate the activation of and effect of an opponent's Spell or Trap Card and destroy it. When this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard while it is in Attack Position, you can flip 1 "Silent Strike" monster you control face-down.

This guy's a little too imba.

Card Name: Silent Strike Serpent
Card Type: Monster/Effect
Attribute: Dark
Type: Reptile
Level: 3
ATK/DEF: 700/1100
Card Text: You can flip this face-down card face-up in Attack or Defense Position to negate the activation of and effect of an opponent's Spell or Trap Card and destroy it.

Card Name: Silent Strike Cobra
Card Type: Monster/Effect
Attribute: Dark

A wall? But blocking 1 single attack aint getting this guy far.

Card Name: Silent Strike Cobra
Card Type: Monster/Effect
Attribute: Dark
Type: Reptile
Level: 3
ATK/DEF: 800/1600

This theme seems to be revved around good effect while retaining stealth in exchange for stats. Try to keep it that way.

Your syncro seems to be fine atm, but id suggest removing the last 4 words in exchange for reducing his stats.

If you removed the last 4 words off the Synchro, it would just be way too broken. Free Solemn every turn. Throw in Roars, or something, and you'd negate half of your opponent's effects. Keep in mind that Solemn halves your LP, instead of just flipping a monster face-up.

This fix is fine, but does 800->900 ATK make that much difference..?

Pretty much the same thing, unless you BoM it or something. I'd prefer to keep it as before. Just consider that the opponent may just attack without activating a Spell or Trap, and it would be wasted.

Card Name: Silent Strike Cobra

There needs to be some sort of counter-measure against the opponent simply holding off all s/t until they attack the monsters, that's what Cobra is for.

Proposal?

Not sure I wanna add another synchro as yet, although I'll have a tweak of the python when I wake up next. Really tired at the moment.

As for the Lurker, I guess it could work, although like Aleva said, 1 Solemn per turn is very steep.

Well... 1 solemn per turn is steep id agree... but think about it. You have to keep protecting him becuz his stats are low. Besides, Stardust buster has the same effect. This card is easier to bring out than stardust buster, but is harder to keep on the field due to low stats.

When its face-up, you gotta worry about whether they can kill it with effects that target.

Like I said, low stats, good effects. Btw, when are you getting around to placing spells and traps for this archetype?

Once per turn, you can flip 1 monster you control on the field face-down.

Guess I'll try your suggestion for now.

Card Name: Silent Strike Serpent
Card Type: Monster/Effect
Attribute: Dark
Type: Reptile
Level: 2
ATK/DEF: 800/200
Card Text: You can flip this face-down card face-up in Attack or Defense Position to negate the activation and effect of an opponent's Spell or Trap Card and destroy it.

Card Name: Silent Strike Cobra
Card Type: Monster/Effect
Attribute: Dark
Type: Reptile
Level: 3
ATK/DEF: 800/1600
Card Text: During either players' turn, you can flip this face-down card face-up in Attack or Defense Position to skip your opponent's next Battle Phase. When this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard while it is in Attack Position, you can flip 1 "Silent Strike" monster you control face-down.

Card Name: Silent Strike Lizard
Card Type: Monster/Effect
Attribute: Dark
Type: Reptile
Level: 1
ATK/DEF: 800/0
Card Text: During either players' turn, you can flip this face-down card face-up in Attack or Defense Position to reduce the ATK and DEF of 1 monster your opponent controls to 0 until the end of the turn. When this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard while it is in Attack Position, you can flip 1 "Silent Strike" monster you control face-down.

For the Tuner I want an effect more like this...

Card Name: Silent Strike Python
Card Type: Monster/Effect/Tuner
Attribute: Dark
Type: Reptile
Level: 3
ATK/DEF: 800/400
Card Text: During either players' turn, you can send this face-down card and 1 other monster you control to Synchro Summon 1 Synchro Monster whose Level is equal to the combined Levels of the monsters sent to the Graveyard. If the other Synchro Material Monster is a face-down Reptile-Type monster, you can increase the Level of this card by up to 3.


So far I'm not planning on making this a fully fleshed archetype. I want it to be more tech-able, and less "put all these cards into a 40 card deck, plus a few staples". I might make one or two s/ts eventually, but no guarantees. I think I'd rather just make general Reptile support first, though.

Omg. Thats very gay. Make it by up to 2. Up to 3 means.

level 1 non-tuner reptile + this tuner which is lv 3.

1 + 3 = 4 normally.

but since u said can increase by 3...

1 + 3 + 3 = 7.

And during either player's turn? Omg.

Thats like... when they are gonna swarm you, you pull a black rose on them.

But this card is good. Seal of approval +1.

Thing is, you only get the Level increase if both the monsters were face-down to begin with. If you send a face-down SS monster to the GY for a sync, you don't get to capitalize on its effect. Besides, the idea behind Silent Strike monster is exactly that: to restrict your opponent's moves with uncertainty. Just as no one would swarm with 3 s/ts in the opponent's backfield, you'd have to be pretty rash to try it against 2-3 face-down chainable monsters.

The way you worded it. It says, as long as the other monster was a f/d reptile, it has the opion of increasing the level.
