Wow, a Fusion Monster, another thing we don't
look at very often. Meteor B. Dragon (I believe)
has the highest attack of a Level 8 Fusion at 3500.
This is a fire attributed Dragon who is a Fusion of
Red Eyes and Meteor Dragon...both cards are
relatively unplayable on their own, (while a case
could be made for a dedicated Red Eyes Deck) while
the latter Monster requires a tribute and has a
paltry attack and defense. I mean, at least in
Traditional, where you can use things like
Metamorphosis, you could think about it. Even in
said Dragon Deck, I still don't think you use this
though. I mean, Dragon's Mirror, Future Fusion,
there ARE ways for someone who is that committed.
As far as fusion monsters go, Meteor B. Dragon is
a beast, but in attack only. At 3500 attack, it can
attack over just about anything in the game, but
without an effect, it becomes week to almost
everything. The other major disadvantage this card
has is its dependency on normal tribute monsters, as
Red-Eyes B. Dragon and Meteor Dragon are both normal
Summoning Meteor B. Dragon is not that difficult.
The quickest way is to activate Future Fusion and
then Dragon’s Mirror. If you draw your monsters, you
could use cards like Card Trader, Phoenix Wing Wind
Blast, Hand Destruction, and Card Destruction. You
could also use card like Call of the Haunted,
Birthright, and Soul Resurrection to revive you
The issue that you have with trying to run a deck
built around Meteor B. Dragon is inconsistency due
to having to run the above cards. You can easily get
stuck with ether support cards or normal tribute
monsters. Dragon decks have tons of support, but if
you are going to build a dragon deck, you do not
want to be stuck with cards you cannot play.
Meteor B. Dragon
Dragon/ Fire/ Lv 8/ 3500 ATK/ 2000 DEF
Red-Eyes B. Dragon + Meteor Dragon
This card brings back so many memories the PS1 days
of Forbidden Memories. Unfortunately this card is
like 10 years too late. It’s great that this classic
piece of Yu-Gi-Oh! Is finally released, too bad it
came out during the era where it just might be
completely useless unless there is a deck completely
dedicated to it. Even so, it does not have an effect
and that alone deters this card from seeing play. At
the very least it has good ATK, DEF, and there is
plenty of dragon support.
Pros: Good Stats and typing. Elemental HERO Prisma
can make the summoning of this easier?
Cons: Released way too late and has no effect.
Meteor B. Dragon
""Red-Eyes B. Dragon" + "Meteor Dragon""
That's it, a fusion with no special effect. Not
much to say about this guy as there's easier to get
out monsters and ATK power isn't all the game is
about these days. MBD is a revisited monster from the
early days of Yugioh when the strongest monster was
the best to have. You'd have to combine Dragon's
Mirror and Dragon ravine to make him playable, in my
Cool card image, but not worth the effort.
And in this corner, we have Black Skull Dragon on
steroids, the only one of this week from the GX
I have an article for Blizzard Princess yesterday. I
tend to have a habit of not submitting the week's
reviews until all five are finished and this usually
means the first one is late >_>
Compared to Red-Eyes Black Dragon's other Fusion,
Meteor Black Dragon is in itself more powerful (and
not of the Dark Attribute, which usually will hurt
it more than not), but requires weaker Fusion
Material. Summoned Skull is indeed better than REBD,
although if you were ever considering using either,
you'd likely to use REBD as the main with a Fusion
Substitute for the other (unless you're planning to
use Future Fusion...in which case I'd use Meteor
Dragon to play Meteor Black Dragon anyway).
However, I'd never run Summoned Skull and REBD
together. If you ever find yourself actually running
Summoned Skull with a Fusion Substitute monster,
sure, run Skull Dragon, I guess. If you have REBD
and a Fusion Substitute...use MBD for the 300 more
ATK unless you REALLY want that Dark Attribute.
MBD's Fusion Materials are both Dragons, so that
deserves another look.
If you're willing to use the original REBD in a
generic Dragon Deck, and you have the POTENTIAL to
summon MBD, then by all means run it. Even in a
dedicated Red-Eyes Deck, I'd likely call out
Five-Headed Dragon with Future Fusion. You could
always splash Meteor Dragon in to get MBD off Future
Fusion, but chances you'd want to do that are
To sum it up, if you were to run REBD (and that
probably only ever happens in a dedicated REBD
build) and happen to have a Fusion Substitute in
your Deck (I can see this happening in an REBD deck
if just for the sake of either of the REBD Fusions,
and if you do that, I'm assuming you have a method
to Fusion Summon without Future Fusion as well),
then yes, by all means, it is justifiable to
splash the Fusion monster into an REBD Deck (the
only Deck I'd expect to see Meteor Black Dragon
Aesthetics: 4/5 You know, it would be nice to at
least name it "Red-Eyes Meteor Dragon" so that it
would at least get the revival off Red-Eyes Wyvern.
