Dark Paladin

Debris Dragon, an interesting little Rare open our week, who bares a striking resemblance to Stardust Dragon...why would that be? Here we have a Level 4 Wind attributed Tuner, who is a Dragon, with 1000 attack and 2000 defense.

Is it clear to you yet? When you Normal Summon Debris Dragon, you can Special Summon a monster with 500 or less attack from your Graveyard in attack position. That monsters effect(s) is(are) negated however.

Not terrible, at least not yet. Odds are you're choosing another Tuner for a Synchro Summon anyway. However, Debris Dragon itself cannot be used for Synchro Summon except for a Dragon type Synchro Monster...I get why it looks like Stardust now...

If that weren't enough, you can't use other monsters that are Level 4 meaning two things: either one, you have to use three monsters to get your other four stars, or use a tribute monster, and I frown at both of those options.


1.5/5 both formats

Art: 3/5 It DOES look like Stardust Dragon, but in a deformed almost Zombie sort of way.
General Zorpa Debris Dragon

This is the hyped up version of Junk Synchron. It is a level 4 Tuner with 1000 ATK and 2000 DEF and is a WIND Dragon. Those are not the most impressive of stats, but the fact that it is a level 4 Tuner should make waves. At this point there are only 5 of them, Debris, Trap Eater Rose, Eel, and Hyper Synchron.

The effect is where you get interested in this card. When it is Normal SUmmoned, you can Special Summon a monster with 500 or less ATK. The monster's effects are negated though. There are a few built in restrictions, like the monster cannot be of level 4 and you have to Synchro with it for a Dragon Synchro monster.

These restrictions make it hard to abuse this card, but it can really be a very useful tool for Synchroing up big monsters quickly. You can use it with Tuningware to get a draw if there were a level 5 Dragon Synchro. I can really see this guy taking off if that is the case.

Right now, I don't think he will be played competitively, but he might be played alongside Junk Synchron and friends for easy waves of Synchro Summoning. Alongside a bunch of protection and removal he can really make a ton of awesome monsters like Black Rose Dragon and Iron Chain Dragon.


Debris Dragon ...

Hmmm.... well, this guy just isnt what i can consider good. "Useful"? possibly ... but that's not the same thing as good.

What's the difference? - Well "useful" is a card that will do what u require of it, provided that all u really WANT out of that card and your deck, is one specific thing. "Good" is a card that can do a variety of things for u, usually fairly well, in a variety of situations that may occur.

Debris Dragon is a Wind Dragon ... both a fine attribute and good monster type. A level 4 Tuner - also nice. And his ability to special summon a dragon from your grave (99% of the time to tune with) is fantastic. But that's about where this card starts to lose momentum. The stipulations on him start to hurt him a lot. U can only take a monster that is 500 ATK or less. Ok, fine. U stil l have some choices here. Negate that monster's effect? - uhg. Debris can only be used to Synchro summon a Dragon type monster? ... uhm ... and THEN u cant take something that's Level 4??!?!?!
So that means, at THIS point, for what we have available, Debris Dragon's primary function is a shortcut to Black Rose Dragon. Because u cant use his effect to grab another 4 star, he doesnt make getting 8 star monsters like Stardust or Red Dragon Archfiend any easier. That leaves BRD (at 7 stars) as the only viable target right now.

And with 1000 ATK, he's even pretty weak for a 4 star.

If all u care about in life is bringing BRD to the field, then by all means - Debris is a great guy for your team. Otherwise? ... wait and be patient. There is this AWESOME dragon Synchro coming out in Raging Battle that Debris may be even more useful for,
Till then? Just store him somewhere.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5


N o V a
Here are the COTD reviews.

Debris Dragon, one of the cool cards from Crimson Crisis, though not a very good card its still a cool card for looking like Stardust Dragon. When its Normal Summoned you get to special summon back a monster with 500 or less attack in attack position and its effects get negated. Being a level 4 Tuner, you'd think that it would be easier to bring out some heavy hitting level 8 synchro monsters, but the draw back to Debris Dragon is you cant use level 4 monsters with it for synchro summoning, and on top of that you can only use it to bring out a Dragon-Type synchro monster.

There are a few good points to this card however. Its easily summoned and searchable thanks to cards like Sangan and Masked Dragon. And if you do summon it out with Masked Dragon, you can special summon it in defense, with its solid 2000 defense it can be an obsticle for a lot of cards.

The card is cool looking and I can see some hidden potential with cards like Tuningware combo'd with Machine Duplication. Not much else to say about this card, its nothing to game breaking so in peoples rare binders it will go for now.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5


Debris Dragon

Effect:When this card is Normal Summoned, you can Special Summon 1 monster with 500 or less ATK from your Graveyard in Attack Position. That monster's effect(s) is negated. This card cannot be used as a Synchro Material Monster, except for the Synchro Summon of a Dragon-Type Synchro Monster. The other Synchro Material Monster(s) cannot be Level 4.


I do not see this card being any good this format I guess maybe in a Cyber Dark Deck or Dragon.
