Obsidian Dragon is a rather nice
monster for those of your playing Dark Decks right
Before we look at an effect, let's look at some
Obsidian Dragon is a Dark monster who despite having
Dragon in his name is a Rock monster with 800 atk
and 2100 def.
Let's talk about that...2100
defense in a Level 4 (with no negative
effect) is awesome.2100 defense is enough to defend against most
anything commonly played that doesn't require a
tribute, aside from the rare Goblin Attack (and
Elite) Force.2100 defense can also stand up to Cyber
Dragon, although his play has decreased some.
Now, onto the effect.As long as Obsidian Dragon is face up on the
Field, negate all Monster, Magic, and Trap effects
that target Dark monsters on your side of the Field,
and destroy that card.In short, that's reasonably solid protection
out of a card that can hold it's own, at least for a
Traditional:2.75/5Not completely useless, and people play more
targeting cards here.
Advanced:3.75/5Welcome protection for an all ready
Well, at least they tried. This is what I get when
most people talk to me about Obsidian Dragon. It
prevents targeting of your DARK monsters by S/T
cards. Well ok, since only four or so cards target
in the average DAD deck, this card is just not all
it's cracked up to be. A decent first turn set for
DARK decks, as he is basically invincible from his
own effect unless they bring out a beater.
Not a bad card by any means, but I prefer Dark
Illusion, as it kills whatever tried to target, so
that DAD, Raiza or Zaborg is sent to the afterlife
instead of breaking through your defense. Since a
DAD deck is capable of going so fast, this card
would likely only slow you down.

This card has an interesting
effect. Unfortunately, it's far too slow to be of
any use right now. It does have the nifty effect of
protecting your other Dark monsters from cards like
Sakuretsu Armor, Brain Control, and etc. But due to
its sub-par Attack and being a very slow card in
general, I can't see it ever being incredibly useful
outside of casual play.
obsidian dragon is a nice piece of
tech for dark decks. especially because the shadow
monarch does extra damage against it. this is a
great idea for a side deck, as it schools monarchs.
both of these are for a dark side
