Another character card today, though from Mai
Valentine, not Joey Wheeler, we look at Harpie's Pet
Dragon. The best thing this card has going for it,
is that it's a Wind Monster. Being a Dragon is also
a good thing, but in a Harpie Deck, it's essentially
a moot point. 2000 attack and 2500 defense base
stats for a Level 7 Monster is garbage. There isn't
a nice way to put that. She does gain 300 attack
and defense for each Harpie Lady on the Field. Harpie's
are getting better, slowly, but still aren't quite
competitive enough. This Monster is outclassed by
an XYZ form, two to be technically correct.
Assuming you were using this in your Harpie Deck,
you're probably not likely to have more than three
Harpie Ladies on the Field at a time (2900-3300) but
with no protection, or anything else, there just
isn't room for her.
We are revisiting some old cards that may have an
impact on today’s Meta and that may be in Joey’s
World being released at the end of the week. Next up
on our list is Harpie’s Pet Dragon. What makes this
monster so good is not its effect, but the fact that
it is a Level 7 Dragon type monster.
You are only going to see Harpie’s Pet Dragon in
a Harpie deck. It is a fun deck, but it still lacks
the speed of the top tier decks, even with Hysteric
Sign. With the addition of Hysteric Sign and Harpie
Channeler, Harpie decks have become relevant again.
Pet Dragon is a key card in this improved deck.
What you want to do is summon Harpie Channeler
from the hand or from the deck with Summoner Monk.
Then you use Channeler’s effect to special summon
Harpie’s Pet Dragon. By doing that, you give
yourself two level 7 monsters on the field as
Channeler becomes a level 7 monster when a Dragon
type monster is on the field. Then you overlay for a
powerful Rank 7 monster like Dracossack, Big Eye,
Abyssgaios, or Master of Blades.
Harpie decks can be a lot of fun with all of the
support we have for Wind and Winged Beast monster
along with all of the new Xyz level 4 and 7 monsters
in the game. Harpie’s Pet Dragon is a key piece to
Harpie's Pet Dragon
This card gains 300 ATK and DEF for each "Harpie
Lady" on the field.
Continuing our look at Legendary Collection 4:
Joey’s World we look at one of Mai Valentine’s main
cards, Harpie's Pet Dragon. This was last
reviewed way back in 2002 check it out here:
yeah not exactly a bunch of glowing reviews, still
how have things changed?
Statwise Harpie’s Pet Dragon isn’t great for a level
7, only 2000 ATK which is really bad and 2500 DEF
which is okay. Harpie’s Pet Dragon gains a 300 ATK
and DEF boost for every Harpie Lady on the field
which isn’t great but still you could have a 3200
ATK Dragon if things go your way.
So what makes this card so playable these days.
First of there is Harpie Channeler which can
Special Summon this card from your deck and then use
both this and Channeler to get a Rank 7 Xyz Monster.
Also there are a lot more Harpie cards available for
people to choose from and plenty of support as well
and it seems a lot of these will be available in
Legendary Collection 4.
Overall from a card no-one touched to one of the
most desirable cards today. It is amazing what can
happen in 10 years. Still if you play Harpies this
card is a must.
