Hello Pojo Fans,
Omni Dragon Brotaur is a good searcher card for any deck to use if you have space.
Level 1 synergy with One For One, but its own Special Summon ability is easily activated. Banish when leaving the field is a typical balance for monsters that may be small but pack power in their effects. You need a monster on the field to activate Omni’s effect, so it won’t be of any use when you have a clear field or if your field would be cleared when activating Omni’s effect in your hand or grave. Ditch a card and add a monster with the same Type and Attribute is for decks that run a lot of the same archetype: Shaddoll, Blackwing, Pendulum, etc. This is a card that is easily splashable in almost any deck. It is another way to directly search something you need and use the card you discarded to set up your graveyard. You can link Omni away or use it as synchro material, but you are losing it when it leaves the field (unless you Xyz with it, but who Xyz summons a Rank 1 nowadays?).
While it is a direct search monster and can be easily Special Summoned, its play really revolves around having space for it. Many decks have ways to direct search already, as well as set up their grave. That being said, decks like Guardragon could use this card effectively without losing any steps along the way.
Until Next Time
Now we’ll really get into Dark Neostorm for a few weeks by looking at some of the more interesting cards of the set, starting with Omni Dragon Brotaur.
ODB is a Level 1 DARK Dragon with 0 ATK and DEF. I can never ask for good stats on a Level 1, but I still like DARK and really like Dragon. If a monster you control is destroyed by battle or an opponent’s card effect, you can Special Summon this card from the hand or graveyard, but banish it when it leaves the field. Easy way to get this monster on board outside using something like any generic Dragon card that summons them or using One for One to get this from the deck. Always nice to get free cards on board with minimal effort. The banishing part is something I’d expect on most cards that can revive themselves from the grave to prevent the abuse throughout the entire duel. Upon being Special Summoned via any means, so thankfully it can Special Summon itself, you can target a face-up monster on the field and discard a card to search for another monster with the same Type and Attribute, but a different name. The discard makes the search balanced since technically this little guy can search anything. Targeting himself alone can get you to Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon because we need more ways to get to that, right? The best home for this guy is in Dragon decks since you got a lot of LIGHT or DARK Dragons you’ll probably play to search, especially on the DARK side with the aforementioned REDMD or even Dark Armed Dragon or something else. This could be useful in other decks, the potential is there, but being a Level 1 Dragon that can get you to your other Dragons makes him great in Guardragon variants now.
Advanced Rating: 4.25/5
Art: 4/5 I heard the Firewall Dragon comparisons, which I can see minus being computerized like Firewall Dragon.
Do you even Omni Dragon bro? So we have a Dark, Dragon, Level 1, with 0 attack and defense and a plethora of text behind it. So, first we see this Monster can Special Summon itself from your Graveyard or Hand, when a Monster of your control is destroyed. To come from the Graveyard, it has to be there when that Monster was destroyed. No specific requirement to come from the Hand, however.
It is removed from play when it leaves the Field though. Next, we have a nice 1-for-1 effect when this is Special Summoned you Target a Monster on the Field (most likely one of yours, but if your opponent has something out that fits what your Deck plays, it can be theirs too) and after discarding a card, you get to add a Monster of the same Type and Attribute from your Deck to your Hand, but differently named.
Each effect, naturally, is once per turn. This guy is a nifty little Dragon, obviously good for them, but could be a neat piece of tech for others as well. Just because he’s a Dragon doesn’t mean you HAVE to use him for Dragons, because that’s not specified in his effects. Just something to think about I suppose. But he should thrive best for a Dragon player.
Art: 5/5 This kinda looks like a mini, mechanical Stardust Dragon to me. The body is great, the colors in the background (and at the base of the Dragon) are really great too.
