Cyber End Dragon
This review is going to be painfully similar to
yesterday’s, so I apologize. Cyber End Dragon is a
hilariously powerful monster – the strongest in the
TCG, actually. 4000 ATK is currently unmatched.
Add that to the fact that this monster has trample –
along with the other fact that Scapegoat is
everywhere nowadays – and you have a highly
effective monster. Throw in Limiter Removal. You
have…an even more effective monster.
But, alas, it’s a Level 10 Fusion that can only be
Fusion Summoned by combining three cards (Cyber
Dragon x3). Being Level 10 makes it unnecessarily
hard to bring this out through Metamorphosis,
leaving two real options: Power Bond and Cyber
Stein. Cyber Stein costs 5000 Life Points, meaning
you’d better get this out early on in the duel if
you plan on winning that way.
Power Bond has that nasty little drawback of still
needing the Fusion Material monsters, which really
means your only option (without my getting into a
review of Power Bond) is Cyber Stein.
Of course…it’s a Fusion. So run 3.
Machine Deck: 5/5
OVERALL RATING: 5/5
Cyber End Dragon
Yesterday's card had 3 uses. This has only one, but
if you're using it right, you've just won.
NO ONE with an ounce of sanity left in their head is
summoning Cyber End Dragon with Polymerization (or
even Power Bond). Metamorphosis typically isn't an
option here unless you're running a REALLY weird,
off the wall deck using Koitsu or something. That
leaves one possible deck for it to work in:
Cyber-Stein One Turn Kill.
Jerome McHale put out a great write-up on Metagame
as to how the deck works -- basically, you clear the
opponent's M/Ts with Giant Trunade or Heavy Storm
and hope the opponent chains Scapegoat; you summon a
Cyber-Stein, pull out Cyber End Dragon, and either
Limiter Removal it or Megamorph it (since it's a
machine, either will work!) to have an 8,000
trampler ready to tear up a sheep token.
The deck uses the same drawing engine as the
standard Mill deck, with Cyber Jar, Book of Taiyou,
Book of Moon, etc...in this case, Book of Taiyou
also doubles as offense with opponent face-down
monsters. I'd rather have to dig for a second
Limiter Removal or a Megamorph and a Limiter to take
out an opposing BLS than go through a face-down and
worry about whether or not I've clinched the game
The other beautiful thing is that the deck sides out
to a full first turn mill deck, so if your opponent
happens to let you go first in Game 2, thinking that
this way they'll be able to adequately prepare for
an opposing onslaught of the Cyber End Dragon...by
the time their turn rolls around they won't have any
cards left in their deck.
Seriously, get this guy. Get 3 of him if you can. As
he's a Fusion, there's NO bad side to playing him.
Hmm. Unlike yesterday's card, today's OTK isn't
built in. A 4000 ATK Machine is a very dangerous
thought. 10 stars makes him very difficult to Morph,
but still not impossible (damn you and your combos,
Koitsu). Cyber Stein is actually a good way to use
this. Giant Trunade, they play Goats... Ooh, my
stomach just churned at the though. Summon Cyber
Stein, summon Cyber End, attach Megamorph or play
Limiter, hit for 8000 to a Goat or something... It's
even worse if you pop out two Limiters. 16000. o.o I
only achieved that once when I toyed with a player
after getting 9 card advantage on him.
Unfortunately, the deck in question is nothing but
situational, and the best it can hope to accomplish
is knocking out the occasional unprepared player.
The First Turn Kill Mill is better than this, and
the FTK Mill is pretty inconsistent.
However, that doesn't detract from this guy's
playability by much. RONIN tells us that is the ONLY
10 star Fusion monster in the game. While some
people will cite UFOroid Fighter, I will cite 0/0
and tell them to go away, especially since a Level
of 10 doesn't matter if you're not Morphing it out.
So, as a more accurate note, this is the only
IMPORTANT 10 star Fusion in the game.
Should you get it? Actually, you already know the
answer to that question, but I'll tell you to get
one for your Fusion deck anyway.
Oh, it should be noted that this monster is actually
likely to be summoned. There is a deck based all
around Creature Swapping your opponent a Koitsu and
then attacking it with KA-2 Des Scissors for a quick
5000 damage. Assuming that you play this deck, you
can Sakuretsu Armor the Koitsu and zomg 2 - 0 ggnore.
Some people will expect me to make a note of its
Fusion summonability, so here:
You are more likely to see that view in person than
you are to successfully Fusion Summon this card
ever. With Power Bond... Wow, that has just blown me
However, 5/5 for sheer you can include it in your
Fusion deck with no consequence playability.
5/5 all formats (especially Draft, where it pays for
Cyber End Dragon
Our final card this week is the grand daddy of CRV,
Cyber End Dragon! And lucky for me with my time
constraints, CEndD is extremely similar to
yesterday’s card. I think you see where I’m going
Let’s mix things up and start with CEndD’s effect:
It has a piercing ability. With that said, CEndD is
a 4000 ATK Machine. I think it’s fair to say "dude"
in this situation. A 4000 ATK ANYTHING warrants
drooling, and a built in defender thwarter only
opens the floodgates for said drool. Then there’s
the whole Machine bonus. With Limiter Removal you
can make CEndD an 8000, 16000, or 32000 ATK trampler
depending on how many Removals you want to use.
Insert "dude" here.
So, now that we’re aware of CEndD’s awesome
potential, how do we reach it?
Well there are a few methods you can use: You can
TRY to use Metamorphosis, though I doubt you’ll have
an easy time getting a Level 10 monster onto the
field. You can try The Light - Hex-Sealed Fusion,
but that would require having too many monsters on
the field. There’s always actual Fusions utilizing
Polymerization or Power Bond, Power Bond reaping the
most benefits by making CEndD a default 8000 ATK
monster, but both of those options require too many
So that leaves us with Cyber-Stein. Not only is it
the easiest way to summon CEndD, but also it makes
Megamorph that much easier to use. Why Megamorph?
Well, if for some reason you haven’t figured it out
yet, CEndD is an excellent replacement for BEUD in
the TCG where it is not available. In fact, it’s
probably even better than BEUD is in the OCG as well
given that it has the piercing aptitude, making a
field barren of monsters less necessary. Of course,
Limiter Removal can serve the same purpose as
Megamorph, but if you don’t happen to have a Limiter
Overall, CEndD is the newest addition to OTK family.
Whether or not it will see great amounts of play is
not for me to say. But if you’ve got the right
materials, you might as well go for an easy win.
Advanced: 4.5/5. You should at least put it in your
Fusion Deck to show off.
You lucky dog.
Traditional: 4.5/5. The availability of Raigeki and
Harpie’s Feather Duster only make sit more
Art: 3.5/5. I’d think a monster with such
devastating potential would look more… devastating.
Wow. A morphable level 10 fusion monster…with
trample! It can also be summon via Cyber Stein.
Yeah, this card is officially stupid. Anything that
involves a first turn kill is stupid.
If you’re not running first turn kill, then sell
this stupid card. It’s bound to fetch you about half
the price of a booster box.
Advanced: stupid/5 (4/5)
our week of CRV cards comes to a close, here we come
to the only true reason to play Cyber Dragon or a
themed deck of that nature.
4000 attack with trample makes AGG from TLM look
like dogshit. 9000 attack with trample makes
everything look like horseshit.
On a final note, be one of the "few" *chuckles* who
comes up with the OTK/FTK with this card. First one
to send me an e-mail of it wins a 50 cent piece.
Seriously though, this card IS good, despite the
horrible hand management involved with Fusion. Read
my article about this card, if you haven't done so.
Cyber End Dragon FTK/OTK: 5/5
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
