Artorigus is a Warrior that requires two level four Noble Knight monsters to XYZ Summon. Once he’s summoned, you can target up to three Noble Arms Equip Spells in the graveyard to equip to Artorigus, who can become a monstrous Warrior with a high ATK. Once per turn, you can detach one XYZ material to destroy any number of Spell or Trap cards on the field up to the number of Noble Arms Equip Spells you control. Artorigus is one of the monsters you’ll want to play around in a Noble Knights deck.

Last Chapter of the Noble Knights allows you to bring back a Noble Arms Equip Spell and a Noble Knight monster from your graveyard if your opponent controls a monster while you don’t. On top of that, you can Special Summon that creature with the equipment added to it. This is an easy way to get a monster back on your board and potentially start some combos.

Isolde, Two Tales of the Noble Knights

Isolde, Two Tales of Noble Knights is a weak creature with only 1,600 ATK. But the card makes up for this small offensive power with its various effects. If you Link Summon Isolde, you can add a Warrior monster from your deck to your hand. You can also send any number of Equip Spells with different names from your deck to the graveyard to Special Summon a Warrior from your deck with a level equal to the number of cards sent to the graveyard. This interaction with your deck can help you quickly reach out for a creature if you’re being dominated on the board by sacrificing a couple of cards.

Merlin is one of the Noble Knights cards that has the Spellcaster type instead of Warrior. It has three powerful effects that you can choose from to use once per turn. You can tribute Merlin to Special Summon a Noble Knight from your deck, but you can’t Special Summon non-Noble Knights for the rest of the turn. As a quick effect on either player’s turn, you can banish Merlin from your graveyard to Synchro Summon with monsters you control. As a quick effect on either player’s turn, you can banish Merlin from your graveyard to XYZ Summon with monsters you control. This makes Merlin a very flexible card, allowing you to adjust to the current board state and take over the game.
