Tiger Dragon opens our week, a rather interesting Monarch-type card, but only if tributed the right way. Tiger Dragon is Level 6 Earth monster with the standard 2400 base attack and a reasonable 1800 defense, who is obviously a Dragon.

If you tribute a Dragon-type monster to tribute summon Tiger Dragon, you can destroy up to two face down Magic or Trap Cards your opponent controls. Is this card any good? Arguably. It does obviously belong only in a Dragon Deck, which aren't too big on the playlist this Format.

It does have a solid attack, and a reliable destruction effect, but unless Dragons suddenly become popular, Tiger Dragon is best left in your trade binder for now.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1.5/5
Advanced: 2.5/5
Art: 4/5

Tiger Dragon is like a Mobius the Frost Monarch for Dragons. The only differences is that its a Dragon, must tribute a dragon and the Spell or Trap cards have to be face down. Of course people would use this in a Dragon deck because it would be useless anywhere else. Tiger Dragon can be used with Future Fusion and Dragon's Mirror, while Mobius cannot. It has a little bit better defense than Mobius, so if somehow this is in defense Stratos and most other monsters can't get over it, but Dragons have been mainly a casual deck and never really regional worthy.

Advanced: 2/5
Anteaus Tiger Dragon:

This card is perfect for Dragon-type decks, because most everything in a Dragon deck is...well, it's a Dragon, right? So naturally you'll be tributing a Dragon for it, and to destroy two face-down Spell or Trap cards is just amazing. This card won't bring the Dragon deck to prominence or anything, but it will help it out tremendously - maybe to the point of making it a Tier-2 build. There are a lot of great dragons out there, and this card will only help the deck. Don't think of splashing it, though, because it belongs strictly in a Dragon build.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5 (In a Dragon build)

Tiger Dragon

Now here is a good card. He is a Dragon type with 2400 ATK and 1800 DEF, which is about average for a one tribute monster, but with slightly higher defense. EARTH attribute neither hurts him nor helps him, but his effect is decent. If you tribute a Dragon monster, you get to blast any 2 face-down sell or trap cards that your opponent controls.

This is basically a themed version of Mobius the Frost Monarch. If you want to destroy Spell and Trap cards with a tribute monster, you should still use Mobius. However, in a Dragon deck, you can actuallyk make use of this guy. Dragons hate face-down stuff, as it will usually stop the rain of destruction that they like to unleash. So any added way to get rid of cards like Solemn Judgment and Phoenox Wing Wind Blast is helpful.

As he only destroys face-downs, you have to admit that Mobius is better, but this guy had some pretty sick art.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-1.5/5
