“What is a dragon, but a miserable pile of secrets!
But enough talk, have at you!” …...Come on, you were
thinking it too when you saw this card's art.
Funny enough, I never knew the Dracoslayers and
Dracoverlords were even enemies until this card came
out. Now it makes sense. Anyway, enough flavor
texting. Draco Face-Off is a Quick-play Spell, which
means you can trigger it on your opponent's turn,
which means if you draw this early on, you can give
your opponent a surprise before the whole turn's
over. It lets you grab one Dracoslayer and one
Dracoverlord from the deck; one goes either to the
Pendulum or Monster Zone, while the other goes to
the Extra deck face-up. I guess that's supposed to
balance things out, as you're now unable to summon
the second monster, but it's a small price to pay if
you're whole deck is based around these monsters.
Overall, it's a good search and grab card- though
limited to the two themes.
Final Score: 5/5, Dracoslayer/overlord decks only
I do love Quickplay Spells. This one is fairly
limited in usage, even beyond the fact that you can
only activate it once per turn. Draco Face-Off has
no cost and puts cards exactly where you want them
to be. You reveal 2 Pendulum Monster cards, a
Dracoslayer and a Dracoverlord, from the Deck. Then
your opponent has to randomly pick one for you to
Special Summon or Pendulum Zone. The other goes
Face-Up in the Extra Deck. This is great if you're
running the Draco version of Pendulum Summoning, but
if you have only splashed Dracoslayers, this card
won't work. Another problem is that there are only 3
cards you can currently reveal, so if that one
Dracoverlord is not in your Deck at the time, this
card won't work. However, it is great that you can
activate this on your opponent's end phase and
really set up your field early game.
Score: 3/5 Free Special Summon is good.
Art: 4/5 I'd watch that fight.
