Master Peace, the True Dracoslayer
As discussed yesterday, Master Peace, the True
Dracoslayer is an addition to what is growing to
become the True King/True Draco archetype.
Unfortunately, this monster does not fit in well,
and has actually been crushed by its own summoning
requirement. Because while there are plenty of True
Draco and Dracoslayer monsters, there are not enough
Dracoverlord monsters to merit this monster’s use.
At the moment, there are only 2 real monsters that
conceivably could be tributed: Lector and Vector.
I’m ignoring the ritual monster Amorphactor Pain.
And while both of these monsters have seen play,
especially in the heyday of Draco Face-Off and
Luster Pendulum, which are now both at 1 on the TCG
ban list, that doesn’t mean they could fit in the
True King/Draco theme. There’s just not enough
space. So that leaves using Master Peace in a
straight Draco deck or other pendulum deck, but as I
mentioned already, those decks have long been hit.
With no other Dracoverlord options and very little
other support, not to mention very little searching
possibilities for Master Peace, it becomes a matter
of luck when you could use him. And the game doesn’t
tolerate even the slightest volatility these days.
It just can’t work well.
Now I say all this based on the current game state.
Master Peace’s effect is incredibly superb, and if
one or two new Dracoverlord and Dracoslayer monsters
were to be released in the future, he would be a
beast to be feared. Being able to negate anything is
no joke. Plus he’s a Light-type level 8 dragon,
which has the most support of pretty much anything
in the game. So he’s not very good right now, but he
has a super bright future of possibilities.
Future Potential: 4/5
Hello Pojo Fans,
Another Dracoslayer makes an appearance on CoTD in
the form of Master Peace, the True Dracoslayer.
You'll need a Dracoslayer and a Dracoverlord to
Special Summon Master Peace, and with no other ways
to Special Summon it, this limits its playability.
Negation power of any effect once per turn is very
good, especially when it is cost free. The hefty
cost of Special Summoning this monster gets repaid
when it is destroyed, Special Summoning a
Dracoverlord and a Dracoslayer from your deck.
Pulling two resources from the deck to the field is
a great effec to recover from losing a monster and
allows you to set up your next move (if the monsters
With two Dracoverlords and two Dracoslayers
availaible that aren't from the Extra Deck
originally available (3 of 4 able to be run in a
set), this card may not be too hard to summon in its
own deck. With more support on the way it may become
even easier to Special Summon this card.
Until Next Time
So originally I thought this card was average.
Then I read the Spell Card Forge of the True Dracos
and thought, "That's much better." Forge lets you
summon Master Peace, the True Dracoslayer with very
similar summoning requirements after a field nuke.
Obviously, field nuke is great for a Level 8 Light
Dragon-type monster with 2950 Atk and 2950 Def.
The regular way to Special Summon Master Peace is to
tribute a Dracoslayer and a Dracoverlord. Either
way, once per turn during either turn you can negate
any card or activation for free. Non targeting no
cost negation and destruction sounds pretty good to
me. Having it happen during either turn puts it at
the level of Infinity and Toad. The last effect
triggers after it's destroyed by the opponent while
under your control. Master Peace, Special Summons a
Dracoslayer and a Dracoverlord from the deck. I'm
glad it doesn't need to be sent to the grave to
essentially replace the resources required to
summon. This is useful if you are playing multiple
copies of Master Peace as it fulfills its summoning
condition again. Master Peace should be run at 2,
but only if Draco decks skyrocket in popularity this
Master Peace, the True Dracoslayer. What a
delicious pun in the beginning of the name here.
This is a Light attributed, Dragon Monster (both of
which are good, but honestly not the most helpful to
Crystron) who is Level 8, with 2950 attack and
defense. I don't know why, but Monsters with
attack and/or defense ending in 50 just irk me.
Not that this card isn't powerful with its stats.
This card is nothing short of awesome in the Draco
Deck. It can't be Special Summoned in any way
(which is sad, but balanced to a powerful card)
except by Tributing a Dracoslayer and Dracoverlord
Monster you control. Once a turn, during
either player's turn, you can negate the activation
of a card or effect, and if you do, you destroy that
card. That's phenomenal, and yes, your
opponent can use something not necessarily to
destroy this and hope you'll negate it, but then
your opponent is giving up at least two cards to
destroy your one. If this card under the
owner's control is destroyed by battle or effect,
you get to Special Summon a Dracoslayer AND a
Dracoverlord Monster from your Deck. So you
get a +1 when he's destroyed. This card has a
lot going for it, and he's a boss in his Deck.
Rating: 4.25 The no Special Summon
hurts, but he's very powerful.
