Dark Paladin
Tuesday

I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day, and we open this week up with Dark End Dragon, essentially the weaker, Darker, watered down Synchro version of Light and Darkness Dragon. Now, while Light and Darkness Dragon doesn't see the play at all that it did 1-2 years ago, it's still far better than this card.

Why? Well, Dark End Dragon is a Level 8 Synchro with 2600 attack, which isn't terrible, and 2100 defense, which is equally not terrible.
Dark End Dragon is Synchro Summoned with 1 Tuner and one or more non-Tuner Dark monsters...not a huge restriction, but could be annoying none-the-less.

Now, once per turn you can have this card lose 500 attack and defense and send one monster your opponent controls to the Graveyard. The fact this is optional is good, but unless you're destroying something damn awesome, and winning about that turn, it's not worth it.

That all ready drops you to a monster with only 2100 attack, and 1600 defense, if that part matters. Light and Darkness Dragon is better, has more and better abilities, more attack, and while requiring two tributes instead of a Synchro Summon, I just don't like Dark End Dragon.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1.5/5
Advanced: 2.5/5
Art: 3.5/5 Not that impressive either.

N o V a
Labor Day weekend is up and so life goes on with more reviews, and we'll start this week with the current Shonen Jump Championship card, Dark End Dragon. Dark End Dragon was originally released in Japan's Limited Edition set with its counter part Light End Dragon and the other 2 monsters that were used to bring the two dragons out. Dark End Dragon however is the better of the two, big shocker there right? But seriously, Dark End Dragon is a level 8 Synchro monster that needs a Dark non-Tuner monster with the Tuner to summon it, and once a turn it can take 500 attack and defense from itself to send a monster your opponent controls to the graveyard. Now, this is really good for the sole fact that this card really doesn't have to attack to take out any monster your opponent controls. Since Dark End Dragon has a similar weakness when it comes to decreasing its attack, as that of Light and Darkness Dragon. Since its stats cant really be divided up by five, you have a limited amount of usage, and since you have to decrese its defense as well, you only have 4 times you can use Dark End Dragons ability. Now, thats enough to wipe out all monsters your opponent controls since more times than not no player has 5 monsters on their field during any game unless its like Scapegoat with another monster or something. Dark End Dragons ability could literally mean the end of the duel if the player with Dark End Dragon has the right field or if the opponents life points are just too low and easy to take out. Overall this card is quite the beast and if ever reprinted, its a must in any deck to use at least 1.

Traditional: 5/5
Advanced: 5/5

Dark End Dragon ...

Do I love this card? Yes, I do. What's not to love? 2600 ATK on an 8 Star Synchro? Well, that aint the best, but its still pretty aight, and his effect more than makes up for it. Lose 500 ATK & DEF, and send one monster your opponent controls to the graveyard. Lovely. What's best about that is the specific wording used. "Send", not "Destroy". So that wipes out all those immunities that some of those pesky monsters have to destruction techniques, as well as spells and traps that prevent them.

He's strong, he's Dark, and he safely removes obstacles. Plus he's not TOO too finicky with his synchro requirement as some Synchro monsters tend to be these days ... So DED is pretty gangsta.

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 4.5/5
