Ancient Dragon, Magmaarmor
The second of Ancient Dragons' Legion marks the third day. He legions with Knightarmor, and your reward for doing this is to revive a unit eaten during your Battle Phase by Counterblasting 1 and Soulblasting 1. Normal skill is to gain 3k when he attacks and you have another unit in the centre column.
So you may have noticed that Magmmarmor has no way to actually spring his Legion skill by himself; he must rely on something else eating a unit on attack possibly in order to actually use his skill. So in an Ancient Dragon build, it's either going to be Gattlingaro, Knightarmor or Dinocrowd. And all that's going to accomplish is a really crap Nova Grappler/Aqua Force, assuming you want to chain attacks by eating an attacker (probably only a maximum of two more, since there's only like 2 soul spare normally), or a column game, which Ancient Dragons don't do brilliantly at.
People put this aside for the old fashioned Spino Driver in new Ancient Dragons for a reason. He's a poor alternative to Tyrannoquake. Who I don't recommend even either.

Ancient Dragon, Magmaarmor
Ouch!  A living Volcano?!  Sheesh!  Nasty Ancient Dragon here!
Anyway, if this unit attacks and there's another unit in the center line, whether in Legion or just a booster, this card has an extra 3000 power.  So, standard stuff.
The cool thing about Magmaarmor is that during your battle phase, if a rear guard is retired, you can CB1 and SB1 to turn all rear guards into Tyrannobites.  Very nice.
While not AS good as Tyrannoquake, this is still a solid unit, but sadly, it can't eat units, you need outside help to do that.
Gee, I wonder what we're reviewing for tomorrow.
