Serpent Night Dragon
When I got the e-mail for this week's Card of the
Days and saw "Serpent Knight Dragon", I knew that
(A) Lord Tranorix picked this week's cards, and (B)
he would make out with a Serpent Night Dragon if he
could...well, maybe not that far, but it's the only
reason that this card made it to CotD.
A lot of people say they want to ask Konami "Why??"
when Yata was made. I want to ask Konami "Why??"
when they decided to make this card a Secret Rare.
Summoned Skull was already released as a Starter
Deck Common at this point, and Dark Magician and
BEWD were already out as well.
Even in a Dragon deck, you have much better support
than this card could give you. Spear Dragon, Tyrant
Dragon...if you wanted to play Dragons at the time
this card was out, you were playing the Lord of D +
2 Blue-Eyes White Dragon combo.
There's no specific cards that work with Serpent
Night Dragon, no great combos, nothing that another
card with the same tributing requirements can't
already do better.
1/5 in all formats
Monday: Serpent Night Dragon
Today we're reviewing the utterly awesome Serpent
Night Dragon, a Secret Rare from Magic Ruler and one
of Rex Raptor's Staples.
The stats: 2350 ATK is enough to take out just about
any monster your opponent can throw at you, and in a
direct attack it will knock out over 1/4 of his LP;
2400 DEF is enough to defend against most threats.
The effect: There is none. What does this mean? He’s
100% unaffected by Skill Drain!
Use Cost Down and he's only one tribute. Use Double
Ghoston (coming next set) and he's only one tribute.
He's DARK; that means Chaos food. He’s a Dragon;
that means he has an amazing number of support
cards. Is there any reason not to run this?
Typical tournament deck: 5/5
Rex Raptor deck: 5/5
OVERALL RATING: 5/5
