Firewall Dragon 

By now, most savvy players have seen the nearly endless combos that can be had with Firewall Dragon. As with monsters that came before it, any card that has the ability to bounce cards without real limit is bound to be an enabler. And while Firewall Dragon is a link 4, the fact that he can be summoned through any kind of monsters, even tokens, means he’s easily obtained. And that’s not to mention he has perfect link arrows. This firewall truly is fearsome. 

However, we shouldn’t get too ahead of ourselves. While Firewall is indeed capable of much, he’s not quite able to launch links into the stratosphere. Regardless of the method, he still needs four material to summon. And one Compulsory Evac takes care of him immediately (unless you also happened to have summoned Honeybot to protect him.) The overall weakness of link monsters in this new format is embodied in what Firewall Dragon can and cannot do. At least so far. But he will no doubt be a player for a long time and he could very well be banned in time if future support goes too far. His effects aren’t limited to once per turn, he isn’t prevented from being special summoned from places other than the extra deck, and he possesses no shackles on his ability to attack. Konami avoided all their usual nerfing measures, which means he can only be a great card for the foreseeable future. 

Just as a monster that can add monsters from the grave to the hand, Firewall Dragon is a gem. But his additional effects put him over the top as a standalone card. He’s an expensive monster to summon, but one that allows you to reap rich rewards as a result. This dragon that isn’t a dragon is a superstar nonetheless and should make its mark on the game eventually. 

Advanced: 4/5
Future Potential: 5/5


Hello Pojo Fans,
Firewall Dragon has been one of the more hyped link monsters since Link Summoning was announced.
You need at least 2 monsters, but being a Link 4, you will need up to 4 monsters to Link Summon this Cyberse monster. Being a Cyberse and not a Dragon hurts Firewall with the tremendous amount of support it loses out on (the idea of Special Summoning Firewall to the Main Monster Zone from the grave is overpowered). The best way of summoning Firewall Dragon would be through Scapegoat and summoning a Normal Monster and first Link Summon Link Spider. Great ATK for the amount you commit to it, great Attribute support behind it, and while not a Dragon-Type, Cyberse do have some support.
The more co-links you make with this card, the more you get off of the one-time quick effect. Compulsing a monster(s) off the field avoids destruction and slows down your opponent. You want Firewall Dragon in your Main Monster Zone so you can point to more monsters, but at the least you can get one off of it pointing at your opponents Link Monster (if they have one).
If you lose a monster Firewall points to, Firewall can replace it with a monster from the hand. Crash a monster of yours into an opponents monster, get a new one from your hand and gain off your monster going to the grave. Unlike the first effect this one can be used as many times as you want, and as many times as you'd like per turn.
If a deck can Special Summon a lot without losing out on resources, Firewall Dragon is a great choice.
Until Next Time

Every set has a cover card, and today we get to talk about the cover card, and probably the best card of Code of the Duelist, Firewall Dragon.
Firewall Dragon is a Link-4 requiring at least 2 monsters and points Up, Left, Right, and Bottom. These are great Link Markers, considering the powerful effect Firewall Dragon has. Once while Firewall Dragon is on the field (Quick Effect): you can target monsters on the field and/or in the GY up to the number of monsters co-linked with Firewall Dragon, and return them to the hand. This is a great, versatile effect that can disrupt your opponent or extend your plays. We have already seen many FTK loops involving this card, as well as some powerful plays with World Chalice involving the Extra Link. This effect in the right deck can be broken. If a card Firewall Dragon points to is sent to the GY or destroyed by battle, you can Special Summon 1 monster from your hand. This isn't a once per turn effect, though it should be. This just begs for more abuse with Link Summoning.
The card isn't meta right now, because no Link Deck is consistent enough to keep up yet; however, the day will come when this card is broken in a Link Deck. The effects are too powerful, it is hard not to give Firewall Dragon a perfect score. It is too abusable.
Advanced Rating: 5/5


Todays COTD is Firewall Dragon, a newly released Link monster from COTD. Firewall weighs in at 2500 attack, on a Link 4, light Cyberse body needing 2+ monsters to summon him.
First up, ONCE while Firewall is face up on the field, he can target monsters on the field or grave, upto the number of co-linked monsters and return them to the hand. That effect is good for returning resources, and is a quick effect so it can also react to anything your opponent does, but it needs multiple link monsters pointing at each other for it to actually resolve.
Secondly, if a monster Firewall is pointing at is destroyed by battle or sent to the grave, you can special summon a monster from your hand. And that is just worded strangely to me. It helps the controller take advantage quite easily, allowing for potential multiple special summons.
Advanced 4.5/5 Like Topologic Bomber Dragon, Firewall Dragon is a must play at the moment, if you have access to him
