After a long weekend, we come back, taking a brief break from the new set, to check out cards from the newest structure Deck, full of support for Blue Eyes White Dragon. Dragon Shrine is one of those cards that, at least for the time being, can't exactly be used to its full potential. Scratch that...Dragon Rulers can't really use this to its potential, but they can't use a lot right now. This is a Normal Magic card but is anything but Normal. Send a Dragon from your Deck to the Graveyard, and if said Dragon is a Normal Monster, you can send another Dragon from your Deck to the Graveyard. This card, as should be obvious, isn't great, on its own, and you can't just throw it in a Dragon Deck and expect good things. But it can work in any Dragon Deck, so long as you're running enough Normal Dragons. It's combo potential is just sick.


Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 4/5

Well, lets just make dragons even better than they already are shall we. Dragon Shrine is a supped-up Foolish Burial that was tailor made for the new Blue-Eyes Structure deck. By sending a Blue-Eyes White Dragon to the graveyard, we can then send The White Stone of Legend to give us a Blue-Eyes to our hand to use with Trade-In and a Blue-Eyes in the grave to use with Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon, Silver’s Cry, or Call of the Haunted.

And then of course, there are those powerful Elemental Dragon decks that Konami tried and failed to destroy. Send Flamvell Guard to the graveyard to then send the Elemental Dragon Ruler that you need to the graveyard which gives you two dragons to special summon your E-Dragons. Along with Dragon Ravine, you can load your graveyard with Dragon monsters to speed up the deck. Like we need it to get even faster right!

Dragon Shine can be used in just about any Dragon deck. Use it to put a light and a dark dragon in the grave for Chaos decks, or use it to put Dragunity Phalanx in the grave for Dragunity Dux in a Dragunity deck. Even if you are not playing normal Dragon monsters, Shrine still works like Foolish Burial to get the monster you need to the grave. While Dragon Shrine is limited to Dragon decks, it is the Dragon decks that are at the top of the food chain, so Dragon Shrine gets a high mark from me.

Traditional: 2.5/5
Advanced: 4/5


Dragon Shrine
Normal Spell
Send 1 Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to the Graveyard, then, if that monster in your Graveyard is a Dragon-Type Normal Monster, you can send 1 more Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to the Graveyard. You can only activate 1 "Dragon Shrine" per turn.
Well Card of the Day is back and for this short week, we are looking at the new cards from the new Saga of Blue-Eyes White Dragon Structure Deck. First off is Dragon Shrine, a new spell card which you can only activate once per turn.
That means it has to have a good effect and it does. At first glance it is just a limited version of Foolish Burial as you can only send Dragons, but with Burial at one if you are playing Dragons this would be a boost. But there’s more to this card, if the card in question was a Normal Dragon you can send another Dragon to the graveyard. So it is a double Foolish Burial. Of course this cards works in nearly all Dragon Decks and this card works for Gemini Monsters as well since they are treated as Normal Monsters in the Graveyard.
Overall if you are a dragon player and you need Dragons in your Graveyard ( a lot of them like that idea), then this card is a must. Of course if you don’t play Dragons avoid.
Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 4/5

How’s it going, Pojo? It’s been a little while since my last CotD; college and other things have been getting in the way. It seems like I picked a good time to come back; this week we’re reviewing three cards from the new Saga of the Blue-Eyes White Dragon Structure Deck. Today’s card is Dragon’s Shrine:

Normal Spell Card
Send 1 Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to the Graveyard, then, if that monster in your Graveyard is a Dragon-Type Normal Monster, you can send 1 more Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to the Graveyard. You can only activate 1 "Dragon Shrine" per turn.

This card is a more specific version of Foolish Burial, but in the right Deck it proves to be more powerful. The right Deck is obviously the Blue-Eyes Deck, as there are enough Normal Dragons to get the effect twice.

Sending Blue-Eyes is the most obvious play, and you can send The White Stone of Legend after to add another Blue-Eyes to your hand, or a Lightpulsar or Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon if you are taking a Chaos route. Another target is Darkstorm Dragon, as it is treated as a Normal Monster in the Graveyard. The card has potential in Blue-Eyes variants of Dragon Ruler as well, as a method of quickly getting several Dragons into your hand/Graveyard. This idea would probably rely on running extra copies of Flamvell Guard.

I feel this card is underrated. However, I feel that it also hasn’t found the right place for it to work. This card holds a lot of potential, and I can see it growing stronger over time.

Traditional: 2/5 (You probably won’t see a lot Normal Dragons here. But 2-card Chaos Emperor Dragons are always good.)
Advanced: 3/5

Art: 2/5 (Not entirely sure what the Shrine is supposed to look like. It’s honestly confusing to me.)

Tomorrow: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And this woman holds the power of the BLUE-EYES WHITE DRAGON!!!
