Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale. 1 is awful. 3 is average. 5 is excellent.
Finally Friday. Guardragon Agarpain is a Link 2 Dark Dragon-type Link Monster with 1500 Atk and with Up and Down arrows. I think we could all live with more Atk, but the effect is so busted that Agarpain gets a pass. You only need two Dragons to properly Link Summon, and it can only be Special Summoned once per turn. While you control Agarpain, you can only Special Summon Dragons. None of these restrictions or clauses take anything away from Agarpain. You can Special Summon any Dragon from your Extra Deck to any zone that two arrows point to. That’s insane. Currently awesome, a bunch of dragons now can fit into the Extra deck. Legacy support, current meta, and a ton of future potential, Guardragon Agarpain has the best effect. This is the most toolbox card I have ever seen since Rota. Happy Friday for sure.

We end Guardragon week off with the Link-2 Guardragon, Agarpain.
Agarpain is a Link-2 DARK Dragon with 1500 ATK and arrows pointing Up and Down. ATK is a little low, but not too bad for a Link-2, that Up and Down arrow help its effect (mostly the Down arrow, but Up can help if you somehow get an arrow pointing diagonally up) and once again love a DARK Dragon combination. The summoning requirements are any 2 Dragons, which is easier considering it isn’t locked to a specific Level but harder since you need two of them. You cannot Special Summon monsters except Dragons while you control this and you can only Special Summon Agarpain once per turn, which are much more necessary on this than Elpy and Pitsy. During your Main Phase, Agarpain has a hard once per turn effect to Special Summon any Dragon from your Extra Deck to an Extra Monster Zone or a Main Monster Zone that two or more Link monsters point to. Again, it’s insanely easy for you to get that condition off with Saryuja and the other Guardragons, since this doesn’t have to be pointing to that zone and sometimes it isn’t, and there are a ton of amazing Dragons in the Extra Deck with the most popular being Hot Red Dragon Archfiend Abyss, but you also got Crystal Wing, Number 38 (which I could recommend sometimes since it doesn’t need Xyz Material for its best effect), or a Borreload/Borrelsword. This accesses so many powerful Dragons with such insane ease that this might be the best of the Guardragon Link trio, and the one most likely to receive a ban one day since those Extra Deck monsters shouldn’t be coming out with such insane ease.
Advanced Rating: 5/5
Art: 4.5/5 I just really like how these Guardragons look.
Closing our week, we again shift back to Link, and have Guardragon Agarpain. We move up to Link 2 from our previous Link 1 Dragons. This is still a Dark, Dragon, only getting a modest attack increase from 1000 to 1500, with arrows pointing directly above and below. Agarpain needs two Dragons for a Link Summon (as opposed to specific Levels on our prior Links this week).
So, we still can’t Special Summon non-Dragon type Monsters, I’m still pretty over that as it’s no problem. We still have an effect to Special Summon a Dragon to a Zone that is pointed to by two other Link Monsters, and this time said Dragon comes from your Extra Deck, so we have every aspect covered here between today, Tuesday, and Wednesday, no?
This is once per turn, and as we saw twice before, you can only Special Summon one Agarpain per turn. Free Extra Deck Special Summon are good, and this one can bring Pendulums into play for either effect with the bottom arrow, so that has some more versatility to it also. Between the three, you’re covered in everything. The Extra Deck ability probably makes Agarpain the most powerful of the three I feel.
Art: 5/5 These Dragons have some very awesome artwork. This one has the best body, detail, and background of the three Links we covered this week easily.
