This weeks Tech Card Choice is a card that can cripple some decks and help it’s owner control the field. It can get over most normal summoned mosters and even some XYZ summoned too. The card that I’m talking about is none other than Cyber Dragon.
If your opponent controls a monster and you control no monsters, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand).
You may be using this card right now in your deck or side deck. If so, you may already know what I’m about to say. But if you don’t, then you will have learned new ways to use Cyber Dragon.
One of the reasons why this card amazing is it can be special summoned. That means you can get a free 2100 atk monster for FREE and still be able to normal summon. So you just might be able to get 2 monsters on the field witin on turn. Can you say board presents.
Being that it can become a FREE 2100 atk monster, it baits out your opponents Solemn Warnings. You see no one, I mean no one, likes to see their opponent get a FREE 2100 atk. They will have to think about paying 2000 life points or get hit with 2100 and not be able to get rid of it from the field. Meaning Cyber Dragon makes your opponents use up cards they normally would not want to use. Can you say board present again.
With many people playing Thunder King Rai-Oh in their main deck, Cyber Dragon can just over power it with its 2100 atk. Similar to Solemn Warning, it also makes your opponents have to think about tributing their Thunder King Rai-Oh, monster removal, or worry about loosing it to an attack. Now that’s fire power!
Now here is where Cyber Dragon just gets ridiculous. You see if you have his partner in crime in your extra deck, Chimeratech Fortress Dragon, you can eliminate your opponents entire monsters on the field. You see if you are playing against any deck that plays machine type monsters you can use their, on field, machine monsters and your Cyber Dragon to fussion summon Chimeratech Fortress Dragon. Image what you can do against a Karakuri deck or a gadget deck.
Now here is something you guys may not realize. But one of the most popular and annoying XYZ cards is a machine type monster. I’m talking about Wind-Up Zenmaines. And being it’s a machine type monster you can use your Cyber Dragon and it to bring out Chimeratech Fortress Dragon. And since Wind-Up Zenmaines was not destroyed, it can not use its effect to save itself. It just goes to the grave with its materials and looks at a 2000 atk Chimeratech Fortress Dragon. How does that sound to you? Sounds good to me too.
One more thing, since it’s a light monster, it can be used to summon Black Luster Soldier Envoy of the Beginning or Chaos Sorcerer. You see if you are playing with any of these two cards, you can punish your opponent for sending yourCyber Dragon to the grave.
As you can see this is a very versitile card that can be put into most main decks or even side decks. If you have not tried using it in your deck, maybe you should. Getting a FREE 2100 atk monster is beastly.
