Rainbow Dark Dragon (PTDN-EN003)
Card Name: Rainbow Dark Dragon
This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by removing from play 7 DARK monsters with different names from your Graveyard. You can remove from play all other DARK monsters you control and from your Graveyard to have this card gain 500 ATK for each card removed.
Rainbow Dark Dragon is an absolute powerhouse. The initial 4000 ATK is already at "God Card" levels but it also gains 500 more ATK for each DARK monster you remove. So when it hits the playing field you have a chance to end a duel with an OTK (one turn kill). But all this power comes at a very steep price. Realistically, when you are able to meet the requirement to Special Summon Rainbow Dark Dragon it will be pretty late into the duel. Getting the 7 unique DARK monsters into your Graveyard will take some time. On top of that, once the 7 cards are removed along with any other DARK monsters used to gain the additional ATK (if you choose to), it will leave your Graveyard and playing field depleted of monster cards. So if you're not able to end the duel or your opponent is able to destroy Rainbow Dark Dragon, you will be at a huge disadvantage. This card is an offensive power punch. If you connect you'll knock your opponent out. If you miss be prepared to get countered and be knocked out.
Some DARK monsters to consider in this deck:
- Doomsday Horror is a card that goes perfect with the strategy.
- Helpoemer thrives in the Graveyard making it difficult for your opponent.
- Dark Necrofear can be easily summoned in a DARK deck with the ability to hold off your opponent.
