As with Rescue Ferret and
Linkslayer, Topologic Bomber Dragon is a monster
that can only be useful when link monsters reach a
certain plateau, and that will be when links are
ubiquitous. Currently, the card pool is too thin.
But even then, this monster is pretty rough on your
own field and it might never get a chance to truly
Bomber Dragon essentially
limits your own special summons to two spaces on
your field, which is a fair trade for a monster that
basically halts the opponent’s ability to link
summon continuously while he’s on the field. The
real deal-breaker, at least initially, is that this
dragon is a link 4, which is a tall order. If your
deck is capable of getting that kind of material,
you’re probably going for Firewall Dragon in the
first place. However, if you’re facing a massive
army on the opponent side, Bomber Dragon can
theoretically serve as this era’s Black Rose Dragon
emergency button, however unlikely such a scenario
I have to imagine that certain
kinds of cards would have to be made available over
time for Bomber Dragon to be a legitimate option,
especially over Firewall Dragon. I’m not optimistic
about it. If he were a Link 3, I’d think utilizing
him would be much more realistic, but since he’s
not, I can’t see a bright future for this monster
Future Potential: 2.5/5
Topologic Bomber Dragon has an interesting "code"
name. Topology is a slightly obscure math dealing
with geometry. Topologic Bomber Dragon is a Dark
Cyberse-type 4 Arrow Link Monster with 3000 Atk.
Having so many Links might be appealing but the
effect tends to nuke most of the field. Either
player summoning a monster to any zone any Link
monster points to will trigger the destruction of
all monster in the main monster zones. And then your
other monsters can't attack for the rest of the
turn. In theory, 3000 Atk on a clear field should be
fine for a turn on its own, and you can also just
attack before summoning any monsters to any Linked
Zones. However, your opponent can summon a monster
to a link zone and trigger the effect as well, but
their monsters can attack.
After all that Topologic Bomber Dragon has another
effect. If it hasn't completely wiped the field of
monsters and it attacks a monster, you get to
inflict damage equal to the monster's original
attack. Basically, you should be doing 3000 damage
every time this monster attacks. Hitting a monster
stronger should result in even more damage.
Topologic Bomber Dragon is strong with strong
effects without any protection. As such, it can be
considered a glass cannon. I don't typically like
glass cannons. If this is somehow summoned to a main
monster zone, it could potentially nuke itself which
would be bad. I'm going with an average score to
balance the risk versus rewards of this 3000 Atk
Score: 3/5 Too Risky
Art: 4/5 Math is cool.
We finally have the new set, meaning we finally get
more Link Monsters to use. This is one that is worth
considering to use. This is one of the rivals ace
monsters, Topologic Bomber Dragon.
Topologic Bomber Dragon is a Link-4 requiring at
least 2 Effect Monsters and points Up, Bottom Left,
Bottom, and Bottom Right. The Link Pointers sound
amazing, but the effect balances it out. If another
monster is Special Summoned to a zone that a Link
Monster points to, while Topologic Bomber Dragon is
on the field, you must destroy all monsters in the
Main Monster Zones and other monsters you control
cannot attack. This can be a very good disruption
effect combed with Call of the Haunted, Back to the
Front, or Oasis of the Dragon Souls. This effect
would be better if he pointed Upper Left, Up, Upper
Right, and Bottom... however that might be too
broken and ban worthy. Also, after damage
calculation, if Topologic Bomber Dragon attacked an
opponents monster, you can inflict damage equal to
the ATK that monster had. Burn is always great, and
this is a great burn effect.
This isn't the best Link Monster, far from it.
However, this is worth playing, as the effects he
has can be very powerful.
Advanced Rating: 3.5/5
Today we're taking a look at Topologic Bomber
Dragon, a Link 4 Dark Cyberse monster with 3000
attack. Needing 2 or more effect monsters to summon
for a total of 4 materials, Topologic isn't to be
First up, if a monster is special summoned to a zone
a Link monster points to, Topologic destroys all
monsters in the main monster zones. He's a mandatory
field nuke supported by a beefy bod. Coupled with
chainable cards that can summon monsters for you,
it's an effect to be reckoned with. But it's not
without its downside as when Topologic DOES use this
effect, he's the only monster you control that can
attack that turn.
Secondly, when Topologic declares an attack against
a monster, after damage calculation he inflicts that
monster's original attack as damage to the opponent.
Now, I know even if the opponent's monster survives
the battle due to battle immunity or equal defence,
Topologic still resolves, but I'm not sure about
Topologic needing to be on the field itself. It's
something I need to look into, but if he doesn't,
he's an even bigger force to deal with, possibly
resulting in victory after he dies.
Advanced 4.5/5 If you have the space to run him, you
