Back to the main COTD
Aside from being a decent LV4 beater with a weenie
rush aggro effect, it offsets the cost of a discard
and is a searcher. This card was hit to 1 when
Mermails were in their heyday. Since then,
Mermails have fared quite well relative to other
decks, holding on an still winning regionals over
the years. Since DUEA and NECH, Mermails had
some difficulty keeping up and limiting their cards
no longer makes sense. So, giving them back
their support and allowing them a chance to
potentially thrive again is definitely good.
Atlantean Dragoons is now Semi-Restricted, which
honestly doesn't mean a great deal. Sure it's
nice as an extra asset to the Deck, and a good
attacker at 1800. But if only because it can't
search itself via its own effect, having more than
one doesn't really do you a GREAT deal of good.
I mean, it certainly by no means harms you, and
sure, it will allow you to mathematically Draw into
either copy faster than you would if you were just
running the one. Usually moves like this
follow falling off the list completely in a cycle or
two. To each their own
Rating: 3.25/5 It's a better than average
card in its Deck, but the theme just isn't quite
there right now
