Scrap Dragon comes in at #4...I actually like Scrap Twin Dragon more than this, but apparently the extra Level (9 as opposed to 8) makes Scrap Dragon far more favorable.  The Scrap Monsters are like Gladiator Beasts in a way, in how seemingly effortlessly they can recycle and replenish themselves to the Field. 
Scrap Dragon is a Level 8, Earth attributed, Dragon type Synchro monster, with 2800 attack and 2000 defense, and is Synchro Summoned simply with a Tuner and one or more non-Tuner type monsters, so no restrictions.  Once per turn you can destroy one card each player controls.  Just dump something you don't need, and it can almost give use to some weightless card in your Hand or on your Field.
In addition, when this card is destroyed by your opponent's card, either by Battle or by a card effect, and sent to the Graveyard, you can Special Summon one non-Synchro Scrap monster in your Graveyard. 
Fantastic.  So you can dump something purposely that you will want to revive later for insurance.
Traditional:  3.5/5 
Advanced:     4.5/5 
Art:  5/5 

Caution: No s/crap puns in this review!

What DOESN'T Scrap Dragon do? Who DOESN'T want Scrap Dragon? It blows up Geartown and takes out an opponent. It sets off Scrap monsters and combos. It turns fodder into destruction. It turns Debris Dragon and a Fluffy into THIS THING. Then it converts a surplus of Fluffies into a shortage of opposition.

Scrap Dragon has become a staple Synchro of this game, being generic yet Debris-able, powerful yet versatile. This card goes for $25 for a reason, and the only reason I don't have it is because I'm spendomoneyphobic. And it's quite expensive. Because it does everything. And it's a staple. And it's a generic level 8. And it's #4 on our list.

Art: Hang on! The saws are on the way!
Fun Fact: The third one is Atomic Scrap Dragon, and it's ironically the worst.
Tomorrow: Hey, you three were giving us a hard time last year!
