Snodin “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.
