Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Dogoran, the Mad Flame Kaiju is our Throwback Thursday choice, though it hasn't been too long in comparison with some other choices.
 
Kaiju's made a tremendous impact as Side Deck and Main Deck options for several decks. Interrupted Kaiju Slumber can wipe the field and then you give your opponent the weakest Kaiju from your deck while you take the strongest and run it over. Being a Dinosaur-Type, Dogoran can be Special Summoned by a host of Dino-support. A FIRE Attribute lends support to the Fire-based True King, and of course you can drop him on the field after you give your opponent your weakest Kaiju. Rarely is his effect of mass destruction going to be used, but is handy if you can pull it off, but why do that when you can just you Kaiju Slumber to the same extent? High ATK help Dogoran out as a good choice to run in the Main or Side Deck, and the previously mentioned support it can lend to True King or Dinos make it a front-runner for “Best Kaiju”. Trade-In Dogoran for more cards or if you can, Tribute Summon him and have a 3000ATK beater for your opponent to deal with.
 
Kaiju-based help is still around and can do in a pinch. Being able to mesh into any deck as a Side Deck option is great, but to be used in a Main Deck is even better. Worst scenario, tribute a monster your opponent controls to Special Summon this guy in defense and run him down with a monster of your own that's stronger than 1200DEF.

I have a love/hate relationship with Kaijus. Dgoran, the Mad Flame Kaiju is a Level 8 Fire Dinosaur-type monster with 3000 Atk and 1200 Def. Kaijus remove monsters, can push for game, and are really annoying because they come from the hand. This one being a dinosaur only makes it better in True King/Draco Dinosaur decks. If you happen to be running an actual Kaiju deck, 3 counters equals a Raigeki effect. Just amazing. Level 8 is good with Trade-In. So many good points and no downsides. Kaijus are a side deck staple and I hate that that's true.

Dogoran, the Mad Flame Kaiju:
 
It always feels bad when you summon a powerful monster, just for your opponent to drop a Kaiju over it. Today, we will review one of the Kaijus. The one just reprinted on OTS Pack 5 as a Super Rare is Dogoran, the Mad Flame Kaiju.
 
Dogoran can be summoned to your opponents field by tributing one of your opponent's monsters. Giving your opponent a Kaiju with 3000 ATK is questionable, you prefer to give them a weaker one. It doesn't hurt though if you have one of the 2 Kaijus with 3300 ATK, but you would more than likely summon Dogoran with his effect after you give your opponent a weaker Kaiju, cause all Kaijus can be summoned from your hand for free if your opponent controls another Kaiju. Now for the effect that every player ignores, you can remove 3 Kaiju Counters from anywhere on the field to destroy all monsters your opponent controls in exchange for this card to not attack that turn. This is easily one of the better Kaiju effects for the pure Kaiju deck, Raigeki is a powerful card even today, so a card with a Raigeki effect is very nice.
 
When you are choosing your Kaijus for your deck, this could be one of your choices as 3000 ATK is good to kill a weaker Kaiju. This is also great in the Dinosaur deck because Dogoran is a Dinosaur himself.
 
Advanced Rating: 4/5

Dogoran, the Mad Flame Kaiju is one brute of a Dinosaur.  This is a Level 8, Fire attributed Monster, who clocks in with 3000 attack (and 1200 defense).  This card works like a Lava Golem of sorts.  This card can be Special Summoned from your Hand to your opponent's Field by Tributing one Monster they control.  Furthermore, if your opponent controls a Kaiju Monster, you can Special Summon this card in Attack position from your Hand.  Once per turn, you can remove three Kaiju Counters from anywhere on the Field, giving you the ability to destroy all Monsters your opponent controls.  However, if done, this card is forbidden to attack the turn you activate said effect.  The counters are easy enough to come by, so pulling off that effect shouldn't be that difficult.  This could be a finishing move, even if your 3000 attack Dinosaur can't attack afterward.  I'd really like to see this Deck in action.  Ridding your opponent of a Monster to bring this out can be fun, and if you can keep it at bay and/or destroy it, things could go well for you.
