Hello Pojo Fans,
Number 97: Draglubion finishes out the week with back-to-back Dragon-Type Xyz monsters.
Two Level 8 monsters is MUCH easier than yesterdays requirements. Card protection against targeting is great protection. Draglubion can be used to summon the monster we reviewed yesterday. You can only attack with the one that gets chosen by your opponent and is Special Summoned, but that may not matter. Dragon Number monsters can have tremendous ATK and their effect(s) are online the moment they are summoned (they also get a material via the other choice of Dragon Number monster). Of the 18 potential choices you could have to choose two from ( Draglubion can’t be chosen), Titanic Galaxy is the best choice to go alongside Heart-eartH Dragon. They will be forced to select Heart-eartH, as you don’t want a negater on the field, but then you run into the problems Hearth-eartH can bring and its high ATK if there are banished cards. Prime Photon Dragon can gain an additional 1600 from Draglubion’s Rank and be 5600ATK during your turn. They may not have a choice regarding negations though, with Utopic Dragon being able to Special Summon a Number monster and being able to detach to negate.
For two Level 8 monsters you have a monster that can really put pressure on your opponent and get you to bigger and tougher monsters to summon with ease.
Until Next Time
We end this week with the new Rank 8 toy, Number 97: Draglubion.
Number 97 is a Rank 8 DARK Dragon Xyz with 3000 ATK and DEF. Stats are good for Rank 8, and DARK Dragon is good here like it was yesterday. The summoning requirements are any 2 Level 8 monsters, which is easy to fulfill in Level 8 based decks obviously. Your opponent cannot target this card with effects, which any protection is good protection when it doesn’t require a ton of effort to get to, so targeting protection on a generic Rank 8 is lovely. You can detach a material from this card to take 2 Dragon Numbers with different names from your Extra Deck or graveyard, excluding Number 97, and you can summon one and attach the other to said Number as material, also you cannot Special Summon or declare an attack with a monster other than the one summoned for the rest of the turn. So basically you can summon Number 38, or if you got a Link monster with two downward arrows, you can summon this and then summon Number 38 and get two monsters, one with Spell negation, for the price of one, or 2 since this is an Xyz. It’s nice to get extra big bodies on board, but Number 38 isn’t even the only option. Number 107 can be a solid choice, Number 100 can get to 9000 ATK with this on the field, and Number 92 as we saw yesterday can nullify the opponent’s whole turn and be immune to battle destruction and damages the opponent. It can summon a lot of powerful options, so it’s only fair that it shuts down the rest of your Special Summons after it and making sure only the summoned monster can attack, and to be extra safe it is a hard once per turn. Also remember, you cannot revive a Number from the graveyard if it wasn’t properly summoned first, but I’m sure you can attach it to something you summon as material. Number 97 helps get big bodies on the board for not that much effort, so it’s a worthwhile Rank 8, but just remember to get zones opened up for Extra Deck plays so you aren’t just summoning this without being able to fully use the card’s potential.
Advanced Rating: 4/5
Art: 4.5/5 That’s another big dragon.
Closing the week is another large XYZ Monster, in Number 97: Draglubion. This is a Dark, Dragon, Rank 8 XYZ Monster, with 3000 attack and defense. Draglubion requires any two Level 8 Monster to be XYZ Summoned. First, this card is immune to your opponent’s card effects that would target this card. Given how more and more effects target these days, that is awesome.
Next, we see you can detach a Material from this card to choose two other Number/Dragon XYZ Monsters from your Extra Deck. One is Special Summoned, and the other becomes XYZ Material for the other. You are then prevented from Special Summoning other Monsters (not a huge deal) or attacking at all, save with the Monster you chose to Special Summon via this effect.
The latter part of that I don’t like at all. That means you’ve got this guy and his 3000 attack body not being able to attack. I understand it’s just for that turn, but even if he’s the only other Monster you have on the Field, it’s not fun. But I guess it’s supposed to keep this card honest and fair at how easily he brings out another XYZ Monster. That effect is, once per turn. He’s big and powerful, and helpful too.
Art: 4/5 Good detail here, this Dragon does strike me a bit too much like Shenron from DBZ (not a knock, I absolutely love DBZ) but all the pretty colors and brightness contrast a bit more than I’d like against the over bland/darkness of the Dragon.
