Queen Dragun Djinn...damn is she good in a Dragon Deck or what?  This is a Rank 4 XYZ Monster, with 2200 attack and 1200 defense, of the Dark attribute (despite all that Fire) who is appropriately a Dragon.  She is XYZ Summoned with two Level 4 Monsters.  Protection for a type of Monsters is a good thing, and Djinn provides that.  She protects your Dragons (excluding herself) from being destroyed by Battle.  Her 2200 attack (while perhaps a bit low for a Rank 4) still is solid enough to handle her own most of the time, and Dragons have a ridiculous amount of support as is, plus whatever else you're playing on your own.  Also, once per by detaching an XYZ Mateiral, you can Special Summon a Level 5 or higher Dragon from your Graveyard   Said Monster cannot attack this turn, and its effect(s) is(are) negated, but who cares?  This makes it that much easier to Synchro or XYZ Summon a high Rank Monster, like say Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon...take Stardust, Galaxy-Eyes, Blue Eyes, I mean I REALLY like this card.  She's excellent Dragon support.


Traditional:  3.25/5  (Rank 4 and below are obviously far easier to summon)
Advanced:   4.25/5
Art:  5/5

Apparently we do not have enough support for Dragon’s, so making Queen Dragun Djinn helps Dragons go from extinct to current. By summoning this card in a Dragon deck, you can then special summon a Dragon from your graveyard with level 5 or higher and even though it cannot attack and has no effects, it can be used for Xyz monsters and still has an effect that activates in the graveyard like Lightpulsar Dragon. You can even bring out Darkflare Dragon and activate its effect. Its effect is negated buy you will still get a Dragon from your hand and deck to the graveyard.
Hieratic decks love Queen Dragun Djinn as well sense most of the monsters in the deck are level 5 or more. Even though these monsters have no effects on the field, you can still tribute them to get their effects or Xyz summon with them. That gives us a lot of targets for Hieratic decks, like Hieratic Dragon of Asar, Teenuit, Eset, Nebthet, Su, and Seal of the Sun Dragon Overlord. You can also use Lightray’s in Hieratic decks like Lightray Diabolos and use them for the target of Queen Dragun Djinn.
Summoning Queen Dragun is as easy as Rescue Rabbit. You could also use this card with Golem Dragon to create a lock. You can then use Debris Dragon to special summon Golem Dragon in order to Xyz summon the Queen. If you are playing Dragon’s with level 4 monsters in it, you will want to have Queen Dragun Djinn in your extra deck.
Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5


Today's card is Queen Dragun Djinn. A Rank 4 Dragon type Xyz, needing 2 level 4 monsters. The Queen is a rather interesting monster, other than being good Dragon support in their various flavors. I can also go into into another archtype, but i'll get into that a little later. Need two level 4 monsters, easy to do in this day and age of Yugioh, with cards like Rescue Rabbit, Summoner Monk and Red Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon, it makes getting out Queen Dragun make it kinda easy. She has the ability that all other Dragon-type monsters can't be destroyed by battle, which means Golem Dragon could serve a real purpose when teamed along side Dragun. Once per turn, you can detach a Xyz material to target and special summon 1 level 5 or higher Dragon type monster from your grave. It can't attack that turn and its effect is negated. That's where you can use monsters like Vice Dragon to special summon REDMD, or bring back a Hieratic monster, or just a really big monster like Blue Eyes White Dragon. An interesting side note about Queen Dragun is she is also useful along side Yuma's musical Djinn monsters from the recent starter deck. With Djinn in her name, she falls in line with them and their effects. Overall, The Queen of Dragons is pretty good at what she does, provide protection, helps summon monsters from your grave to get your bigger synchro or Xyz monsters, and plays a mean flute along side the musical Djinns.

Angelic Nightmare

Queen Dragon Djinn

Dark/ Dragon/ Rank 4/ 2200 ATK/ 1200 DEF

2 Level 4 monsters

Dragon-Type monsters you control cannot be destroyed by battle, except "Queen Dragun Djinn". Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card to target 1 Level 5 or higher Dragon-Type monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that target. It cannot attack this turn, and its effects are negated.

Just looking at the card art leaves me in awe, but the effect of this card is something less spectacular. Most dragons are already high level monsters, but this card works best in Blue Eyes decks and Heiratics. Sure this card can be used in Chaos Dragon, Disaster, and Hopeless Dragon but those decks rely on the effects of their dragon cards to go off.

The most odd part of this card is because of “DJINN” in its title, it works very well with the rest of the Djinn monsters found in the XYZ Symphony Starter Deck.

Pros: Chaos food, generic requirements, and recursion.

Cons: Subpar attack and defense.

Advanced: 3/5  (Heiratics only)

Traditional: 1/5


I'll talk about her positive qualities first.

She makes any attack on any other Dragon a wasted effort (except for herself and any other copies of herself). (She can protect herself if she changes her name, but the only such card to do so is the forgettable Hero Mask.) She does relatively little to protect Dragons larger than herself (such as Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon), primarily because monsters with really high ATK often come with effects to destroy the larger Dragon then attack Queen Dragun. Otherwise, Queen Dragun does well to divert an attack from REDMD so you can perhaps game-breakingly use REDMD's effect next turn. Queen Dragun can protect smaller Dragons, but Queen Dragun is pretty puny by dragonic standards.

Her main effect, while would've been better had it been ANY Dragon, is not bad. Although they won't have effects and can't attack until next turn, I wouldn't say no to a free REDMD or (lol) Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon. Five-Headed Dragon, for those who don't know, cannot be re-summoned due to its own effect. If you revive Lightpulsar Dragon, it WILL get its effect when destroyed, so that's not bad. Otherwise, you'll usually use up your Dragon right away.


It's hard actually summoning this card in the proper Deck. Sure, Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon can assemble materials quite quickly, but a Dragon Deck has relatively few Level 4's, and those that are used tend to be tributed quite quickly. If you actually get around to summoning a pair of Eclipse Wyverns, they can get their effects when used for Queen Dragun's cost.


2200 ATK is a little on the low side for a Rank 4 Xyz. She gets a lot of support from the musical Djinns, so if you're up to it, splash her into that Deck if only to have a 4400 ATK with Muzurhythm's boost.


Niche Decks: Dragon, Djinn


Traditional: 1/5

Advanced: 2.55/5 (some potency, and has "not bad" effects, but overall "meh," but at least she sits in the Extra Deck and won't be a bother)

Aesthetics: 4/5 In the same way Lord of D. goes into King Dragun, Lady of D. goes into Queen Dragun. The art and concept alone gets 5/5; she's very pretty. I'm really disappointed with the way the naming botched things up. I mean, yes, I guess the English team could not have forseen the Djinn archetype way back then, but there will be severe complications in giving the Djinns further support.

This is also unrelated, but I never forgave the dubbing team for not giving Lord and Lady of D. their full names.


Philosophy Corner: I wonder if all the anti-Pokemon and Harry Potter Christians out there also reject Yu-Gi-Oh, Star Wars, and all other sci-fi and fantasy out there.

Hello duelists, Blackmarketyugioh back again after a long hiatus. Ready to get to it?
Today, we have Queen Dragun Djinn.
    A 4 Rank dragon, with 2200ATK, and 1200DEF. She is not specific as the materials to summon her, which is always a good thing.
Queen's 1st effect is that other dragons you control cannot be destroyed by battle, except for herself. Cool, if you have a way to protect her. Her ATK is a little on the weak side for such a good effect. Her other effect, is a little more interesting. Once per turn, you can detach a material to special summon a Lv 5 or higher dragon from your graveyard, and said dragon loses it's effect, and cannot attack the turn it is summoned.
    Now, that lost effect is just like most things, you flip it face down, and up again, and it will regain it's effect. Use Queen's effect, bring a Lightpulsar from the grave, when LPD hits the grave, you can use his effect to bring another dragon out via his effect.
    All in all, I think that Queen Dragun is a good card, but not useable in most dragon builds. Being a 4 rank, most dragon decks do not play many Lv 4 monsters other than REW and Eclipse Wyvern. And most of the time, neither of those see the field of play. I see the possibilities of this card, and wonder if we may see a Hieratic build that plays the Lv 4 guys a little more than I am seeing now.
Advanced: 3/5
Traditional :3/5
I put this right in the middle due to the fact that I do see ways to use her, but just not in the current meta. I think that if she had been given a little higher ATK, we may see more duelists trying to actually use her.
Artwork: 4/5
Oh come on, this card is absolutely awesome looking! great job!
