We finish this week off with more Dinosaur support in Double Evolution Pill.
 
You can only use 1 Double Evolution Pill per turn, but you'll only need 1 per turn. You can banish 1 Dinosaur and 1 non-Dinosaur from the GY to Summon a Level 7+ Dino from the deck ignoring summoning conditions. This is another great way to summon Ultimate Conductor Tyranno, and it makes the Evolzaurs, True Kings, and hand traps more useful in the Dino deck.
 
The card is worth playing, as more ways to summon a monster as good as Ultimate Conductor Tyranno is worth having.
 
Advanced Rating: 3.75/5 

Syn
Rounding out the week is Double Evolution Pill, a normal spell and another support card for Dinosaurs.
 
DEP is pretty simple, banish a dinosaur and any non-dinosaur monster from your hand and/or grave, then special summon a level 7 or higher dinosaur from the deck, ignoring its summoning conditions.
 
And this is just silly support. Dinosaurs are really good right now, either as True King or True Draco hybrids. They're able to banish any used up Draco or King and special summon Conductor Tyranno straight out from the deck, rather than jumping through their minor hoops to add him to the hand. That's about it really, there're other options to go for, but Dino decks only really have Tyranno as their high level monster now.
 
Advanced 5/5 It's TOO good in dinosaur hybrids or in pure.

Baneful

The first Evolution Pill back in '03 (I think) was a little underwhelming.  But damn, this one really steps it up (at least it seems).  Only 14 years later.  However, I will use this card as a key example of how some cards are not as good as they seem on the surface.

 

Banishing 2 monsters from graveyard is feasible (and ensures this card is not a -1).  However, this requirement makes this card a dead draw early game (Especially turn 1).  As a result, you are not going to want to run 2-3 of this card in a Dinosaur deck if it's going to mean bricking opening hand.

 

Summoning LV7+ Dino from deck ignoring Summoning condition sounds amazing.  Three problems.  One, what if the Dino you really want to summon is a LV5 or 6?  Second, what if you draw the monsters before you draw this card?  Third, how many good LV7+ Dinosaurs are there?  Not many.

 

Lastly, the OPT clause.  I guess, it's important to prevent loops.  But if a player has the guts to run a Dino deck, takes the risk of running giant boss Dinos and has the graveyard fuel to do so, may as well let them go all out.

 

Too much risk and work for something that may only turn out to be a 1for1 (or a +1 at most).

 

2/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Some Dino support at the end of the week in the form of Double Evolution Pill.
 
Double Evolution Pill has the power to pull some really strong Dinosaurs out of your deck. It has those great words “ignoring its Summoning conditions” attached to it, making it even better. Level 7 or higher makes sense as most Dinosaurs are Level 7 or higher that have the specific summoning conditions attached. Two monsters this card requires, so it's like you're doing a double tribute anyways, but it's from the hand or grave. Banishing both will activate any effects of monsters banished this way, allowing for a combo to stack on top of the summon. The only clause in this is that one of the monsters has to be a non-Dinosaur. In dedicated builds this will be a problem, but in the True King Dino decks this just means banishing a Wyrm alongside a Dinosaur. 12 Dinosaurs to choose from for DEP to hit in the deck or hand, most notably Dogoran, the Mad Flame Kaiju and Ultimate Conductor Tyranno.
 
A decent card to experiment with, but I'm not sure where it fits. True King Dinos would be able to use it better than dedicated Dino users, however True King Dinos work well enough at Special Summoning.
