Twin-Barrel Dragon is a Super Rare because...?  Someone fill in the blank there.  I see Blowback Dragon blowing this card out of the water...no pun intended.  Hell, I think Barrel Dragon is better than this card.

 

Why?  Blowback Dragon and Barrel Dragon can both use their effects multiple times...as opposed to this, where Twin-Barrel Dragon only can use the effect once, when summoned.  You toss a coin twice, and if both results are heads, you destroy the chosen card.

 

I'm just not a fan of this card, at all.  We have a Dark monster (good) and a Machine (also good) with 1700 atk (respectable) and 200 def (terrible).  A member of the Barrel family that can be left in the trade binder.

 

Ratings:

 

Traditional:  1.25/5

Advanced:    2.25/5

Art:  5/5  Amazing, too bad it isn't a better card.

General Zorpa Twin Barrel Dragon

The latest version of the Barrel Dragon Series of cards. This one is the level 4 version. Unlike his big brothers you get his effect only once upon his summon. DARK Machine is pretty good though, as it can Chimeratech pretty well as well as taking advantage of the good DARK stuff.
 
All in all a meh card. I would rather use Reflect Bounder in a Machine deck. Same stats, but a more disruptive effect. The art is pretty sweet though.

Pros:
1700 4-Star DARK Machine
Potential spot removal

Cons:
Lack of consistency
A deck it would fit well in

Looks like we have another member of the Gun Dragon family. Unfortunately, he's outshined by his older brother Blowback Dragon. Blowback has to get heads 2/3 times and can be used once per turn while Twin-Barrel has to get heads 2/2 times only when it's summoned. It's a DARK/Machine Level 4 1700ATK which makes it at least somewhat solid of a choice for machine decks though they've lost most of the power the used to have.

Advanced - 2/5

I have not too much to say about this card other than the fact that it was created way too late in the course of the game. Had this card been out pre-Snipe Hunter during the era when machine beats was reigning, it would've been a decent pick. We have snipe hunter, which is far more versatile as it is searchable and has a better chance of destroying and opponent's card. Granted, Snipe Hunter's effect does have a cost, that is almost negligable when considering that it would have greater chances at getting the job done.

Casual Advanced: 1/5 Lots of better choices for removal, even when playing for fun. Could be good in a machine deck.
Competitive Advanced: 0.5/5 Effect only happens when summoned and isnt even sure-fire.

Mind Master
LIGHT
Level 1
ATK/100 DEF/200
[Psychic/Tuner]
You can pay 800 Life Points and Tribute 1 Psychic-Type monster, except "Mind Master", to Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower Psychic-Type monster from your Deck in face-up Attack Position.

Rare

 

One of the smallest of the new psychic monsters. Like other psychic monsters he needs you to pay life points to activate his effect. Basically you tribute a psychic monster to get out any other psychic you want. So far this tells you that Mind Master would work best around its own deck. You can tribute a psychic to bring out another one, use their effect and then bring out another one since it doesn't say once per turn.

 

Its attack power isn't that great, so you will most likely need to summon it after you already have a psychic on the field to use its effect. If you plan on using its effect when it is first summoned or flip summoned, you will need some defense to protect it or you will be taking over one thousand damage next turn. It is also a tuner, which can help you summon Magical Android or Thought Ruler Archfiend. In the current format it wouldn't be able to stand up to the power and speed decks are generating right now.

    Today’s card up for review is Twin Barrel Dragon. Yet another coin flipping, monster nuking monster eh? The upside for this, is this is the only monster to my knowledge with an effect anything like this for a no tribute monster. The downside, is that both of your results has to be heads for it to go off. Most likely, this guy will get killed next turn in the metagame that we have right now, so I personally do not see him doing too much good at the moment. If you have some lady luck on your side, try the card out for fun

Trad: 1/5
