Reasons why this card is very good:
1) 1800 ATK beater (Strong in this format)
2) Easily searchable via Painful Decision, which
also dumps 1 in the graveyard.
3) Can be revived via Masked Chameleon for an
instant LV8 Synchro
4) Alow-scale Pendulum monster which can aid in
Pendulum Summons, as well as continually revive
5) LV4 for XYZ plays
6) Activating this card turn 1 (or any turn) will
disrupt opponent's pendulum cards (like Trick
Mirror, Luster Pendulum, and so on).
7) It's a splashable-generic so it works well for
any Pendulum deck, and works well against any
Pendulum deck. This makes it a long-term
investment against future decks to come.
The one downside is that if you're facing a
non-Pendulum deck (like Kozmos), it's negation
effect won't help you. In that case, just swap
it with Samurai Cavalry of Reptier when
side-decking, but like stated above there's lots of
other benefits to this card.
Look more Pendulums. Vector Pendulum, the
Dracoverlord, is a Normal Monster, but also a
Pendulum, if you didn't gather from his name.
A 3 on the Pendulum scale, and a Level 4 Monster,
who is a Dark, Dragon type Monster, with 1850 attack
and 0 defense. 0 defense is never good, and 1850
attack is quite good, although attack ending in 50
always irks me for whatever reason. This card
isn't the biggest but its Pendulum effect is pretty
sweet. It negates all the effects in your
Pendulum Zone. This card is good right now but
will only get better as Pendulums continue to rise.
Honestly I see this as more a Side-Deck option right
now, but hold onto the one(s) you have.
Hello Pojo Fans,
First time there is a card to counter Pendulum
Monsters that is a Pendulum Monster itself. Vector
Pendulum, the Dracoverlord has decent support behind
it, being DARK and a Dragon-Type, and 0 DEF even
yields it some support as well, but most of that
support involves it being a monster, you want it
being a spell. This guy belongs in the side deck to
counter decks that Pendulum Summon like Igknight,
Qil, and Majespecter. Drop this guy in your Pendulum
Zone and don't worry about your opponent firing off
any knights or searching with scout. It's a good
side deck card, but that is really all it is, a side
deck option at the moment to help counter Pendulum
Until Next Time
There is a beautiful simplicity to this card that
I just love. Vector Pendulum, the Dracoverlord is
obviously a Pendulum monster as the name suggests,
but it is also a Normal Monster and gains some
bonuses that way. He also boasts some other highly
supported stats of Level 4 Dark Dragon-type with
1850 Atk and 0 Def and with Scales of 3. The low
scales are good, and the stats lend themselves to
Summon some of the more difficult members of the
Vector only has a Pendulum effect. Negate all card
effects in your opponent's Pendulum Zones.
Fortunately, that effect only affects cards in your
opponent's Pendulum Zone. Unfortunately, this card
is a combo piece. He is a great one, but only as
great as the deck he is put into. Otherwise you have
a decent easy Normal Summon beater. Or, you have a
set of low scales that shut down opposing scale
effects. There are other cards that really want
Vector, but Vector on his own is a Dragon-type
Score: 4/5 Versatile combo piece or beater with
bonus negation effect.
Art: 4.5/5 Very cool.
