Scrap Dragon was Level 8 and had 2800 attack, and the ability to destroy one card you control, along with one of your opponent's.  Scarp Twin Dragon was Level 9 with 3000 attack, and the ability to destroy one of your card, and bounce two of your opponent's cards back to their Hand.  Today's card, along with the others, can Special Summon a non-Synchro Scrap mnster from your Graveyard when destroyed in Battle or by an opponent's effect.
Atomic Scrap Dragon is Level 10, a Dragon Type Synchro monster, of the Earth attribute, who is Synchro Summoned with one Scrap Tuner, and two or more non-Tuner monsters.  He has 3200 attack and 2400 defense.
Scrap Dragon is the easiest to Synchro Summon, using one Tuner and one or more non-Tuner monsters.  Scrap Twin is Synchro Summoned with a Scrap Tuner and one or more non-Tuner monsters.  Now, as opposed to bouncing, like it's little brothers, Atomic Scrap Dragon recycles, but in a different way.
After destroying your selected card, three cards you selected from your opponent's Graveyard are returned to the Deck.  This is interesting, but I think it certainly depends on what your opponent has in the Graveyard as to this being good. 
Odds are whatever you sent to said Graveyard, you don't want returning, so you better be winning this turn.  I think the two previous Scrap Synchros are better than this, but I wouldn't say the Atomic version is bad.

Thurday's COTD goes to Atomic Scrap Dragon. After Scrap Dragon and Scrap Twin Dragon, you probably had high hopes for this card. Ironically, Atomic Scrap Dragon is by far the weakest.

The power to return your opponent's cards to the deck, from the graveyard, can be powerful. Sure, it's great against some decks, like Zombies, but sometimes it'll actually help the opponent. Decks like Lightsworn, Quickdraw and Gravekeepers will love the returns. There's not much to say about this, other than that you'll throw one in your Scrap deck and probably forget about it.

Art: It isn't nuclear enough.
Fun Fact: Lock's Quest is a very good game.
Tomorrow: I hate that cactus guy in Mario.


Here we have the much awaited Atomic Scrap Dragon. Level 10 EARTH Dragon with 3200/2400. Pretty decent. This one like twin requires a scrap tuner and two or more non tuner monsters.

This one is, not that good. You tribute one card on your field, and 3 cards in your opponents grave, and send them to the deck.

Yeah..... its a mini Pot of Avarice for your opponent. I mean tributing your own monster is great and all for scrap decks, but what happens to your opponent is a good thing. So id rather not have that.

Also, when he dies you can revive a non scrap monster from your grave.

Traditional 1/5
Advanced 2/5
Art- Scrap Hydra BLARGH.
