What's up, you guys?! It's about time we ended this
Dragon Promo week with one of the more unorthodox
Flare Whip Dragon
Race: Flame Dragon
[AUTO](VC):When this unit's drive check reveals a «Kagero»
<Flame Dragon>, this unit gets [Power]+3000 until end of
...Flare Whip Dragon is one of a very small handful
of cards in the game that focus on Race (see? There's a
reason I put that up for every card! XD), and for him,
he focuses mainly on Flame Dragons. When this card first
came out, there weren't very many of these, but after
Set 11 came out and the Seal Dragons came out, which are
all Flame Dragons themselves, you can practically make a
deck of pure Flame Dragons, which essentially makes
Flare Whip Dragon at 16,000 without boosts or Triggers!
The fact that this can force a non-Crossride unit force
down a 10,000 shield should be noted as no other unit in
the game can pull off that isn't a Limit Break or a
Break Ride unlike Dark Metal Dragon, which could've only
been at 14,000 at base. The drawback to this? Flare Whip
Dragon has to rely on Flame Dragon units to work, so
Bahr, Kimnara and the likes won't work with Flare Whip
Dragon's effect. That and being at 10,000 power isn't
very good in a tournament level, but still really fun as
a casual deck especially with Dauntless Drive Dragon...
Next Time: ...I dunno what Pojo thinks of anymore...xP
Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!
Flare Whip Dragon
Wrapping up Promo Week is Flare Whip Dragon. (3 Kagero
out of 5 cards, go figure.) His ability is whenever you
Drive Check a Flame Dragon-type Kagero, he gains 3000
power until the end of the turn.
I guess he isn't horrible. With the right amount of
Flame Dragons in the deck, he'll be swinging for 16k
without a boost assuming no triggers. so you could
easily pair him up with a 5k booster to swing for 21k.
8k+ if you don't feel so confident. I suppose there is
no shame in using Flare Whip until you can afford the
stuff to make your Kagero deck more focused since at
least it lets you use your Grade 1s elsewhere, and he
should be fairly cheap to get a-hold off.
All in all, he's okay as a springboard for a more
focused deck, but you will want to move on relatively
