Yu Yu Hakusho
Pojo's Yu-Gi-Oh! Card of the Day
Daily Since 2002!
All "True Draco" and "True King" monsters on the field gain 300 ATK and DEF. The first time each Tribute Summoned "True Draco" or "True King" monster would be destroyed by battle each turn, it is not destroyed. Once per turn: You can destroy 1 other card you control or in your hand, and if you do, add 1 "True Draco" or "True King" card from your Deck to your hand.

A common in Japan, a secret rare everywhere else.
You’ve heard this tune before. But that’s the
reality when a card proves to be this amazing. OCG
players truly are blessed. Dragonic Diagram, this is
your review, and it’s short and sweet.
Run this card in True K/D decks and every hybrid.
The end. Okay, no I’m kidding, but seriously,
there’s not much to go into. We have already
reviewed a small sample of the amazing monster
lineup available to True K/D, but there are many
more. With up to 6 presence is any deck thanks to
Terraforming, Diagram is a glue-type spell that
makes any situation you desire a reality. It boosts,
it protects, it searches. The Triple Crown of
Yu-Gi-Oh. I won’t waste time saying anything more
about a card that has been discussed ad nauseam by
players of all kinds. If you can afford it, run this
card until it’s banned.
Future Potential: 2/5
Hello Pojo Fans,
Most expensive card in the game right now, Dragonic
Diagram is one of the money card for the latest set
(if you can pull it, being a secret rare and the
massive messup that has occurred regarding the
Built for the True Draco and True King archetypes,
this Field Spell boosts those archetypes ATK and DEF
by 300. Not the best boost, but those archetypes
have high ATK anyways, so that isn't really a
critical part of the card. Protection against the
first destruction by battle each turn for each
Tribute Summoned monster from either of those
archetypes is good. With their high ATK they are
more susceptible to effects or spell/trap
destruction cards. A 1-for-1 search ability once per
turn will replenish your hand with something you
need out of the deck, either True Draco or True King
related. That effect is made even better by the
destruction of the card you give up, activating any
effect it may have. Graveyard effects firing off to
give you pluses while giving you a search from the
field spell, this can lead to a big turn, every
This is a great spell for either archetype, but if
you can't afford it, don't worry, the deck runs
pretty good without it regardless.
Until Next Time
True Draco week is still rolling along, and today we
have what I think is probably the greatest Field
Spell in the history of this game. Dragonic Diagram
has so much potential in the True Draco deck, as
well as making it splashable in other decks with
some True Dracos or True Kings.
As some field spells do, Dragonic Diagram gives
monsters a boost. This one lets True Draco and True
King monsters gain 300 ATK and DEF, because a 3250
Master Peace is fun to deal with if they didn't
tribute a spell. This card also prevents True Draco
and True King monsters that were tribute summoned to
not be destroyed by battle once per turn. You will
never tribute summon the True Kings, but having more
protection for that Master Peace is really good.
This cards last effect is why I think it is greatest
field spell of all time. Once per turn (not per
name, but per copy), you can destroy a card on the
field or in the hand to add a True Draco or True
King card from your deck to your hand. Pure True
Dracos will use this to get to Master Peace ASAP
(P.S. You can run 1 of the wind True King to pop it
to get a spell or trap as well as getting probably a
Master Peace). Not only that, but the Dinosaur True
King deck can pop the babies to get the Earth True
King and the baby can summon a monster (likely
Oviraptor) to search a baby to summon and pop with
Oviraptor to revive a baby while summoning another
baby from the deck to pop with the Earth True King
to eat away at your opponent's extra deck. This
isn't to mention True Draco Kozmo Metalfoe and True
King Yang Zing being decks because of this card.
Play 3 if you intend to use True Kings, and expect
this card to maybe get the banhammer one day.
