Build Your Own Blue-Eyes White Dragon Deck!
The new Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Legendary Collection doesn’t just bring back six classic booster packs, it also comes with six of the most popular cards from the early days of Dueling. Amongst them is Kaiba’s legendary Blue-Eyes White Dragon, so today, we’re kickin’ it old-school to show you how to make your very own Blue-Eyes Deck!
With 3000 Attack Points, tons of support cards, and a history that spans a decade, Blue-Eyes White Dragon is a truly legendary monster. But to make the most of it we’ll need to get it from the Deck first, and we can’t just rely on the Heart of the Cards…
-Summoner’s Art is a Spell Card that lets you get a Level 5 or higher Normal Monster from your Deck to your hand – including Blue-Eyes White Dragon.
-The White Stone of Legend is a Level 1 Tuner Monster, and when it’s sent to the Graveyard you can grab Blue-Eyes from your Deck. Its effect works even if you used The White Stone for a Synchro Summon, or discarded it for the activation cost of another card.
-Paladin of White Dragon is a Level 4 Ritual Monster that you can Tribute to Special Summon Blue-Eyes straight from your Deck. Kaiba played it in the original Yu-Gi-Oh! TV show, and in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, Kaibaman used Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands to get White Dragon Ritual, then Tributed Manju for the Ritual Summon!
Of course, we can’t all be smooth like Kaibaman – not all of us could pull off wearing that helmet, for one. If you didn’t Special Summon Blue-Eyes straight from your Deck, but you have it in your hand, you’ll want to pull out all the stops to Summon it.
-Totem Dragon and Kaiser Seahorse’s effects let you use them for both Tributes when you Tribute Summon Blue-Eyes White Dragon.
-Kaibaman is a Level 2 monster you can Tribute to Special Summon Blue-Eyes from your hand. Normal Summon Kaibaman and Tribute him immediately!
-The Spell Card Ancient Rules lets you Special Summon Blue-Eyes, and it won’t cost you a Tribute or your Normal Summon for the turn.
-Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon’s effect lets you Special Summon Blue-Eyes from your hand or Graveyard, so you can bring it back if your opponent destroys it.
There are a lot of cool Spell Cards that can help you make the most of Blue-Eyes White Dragon, too. You’ll definitely want to consider them for a Blue-Eyes Deck:
Thanks to cards like those, Blue-Eyes White Dragon is more than just a huge attacker: it also lets you draw more cards to get to whatever you need, and defends you from the fiercest threats. Since it’s a Normal Monster, you can also play it with powerful Normal Monster support. Special Summon it from the Graveyard with Birthright, defend your field with Justi-Break, or draw even more cards with Common Charity. Here are some cards you could play in a basic Blue-Eyes Deck:
Blue-Eyes White Dragon (of course!)
The White Stone of Legend
Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
Cards of Consonance
Burst Stream of Destruction
Book of Moon
Mystical Space Typhoon
Bottomless Trap Hole
Call of the Haunted
Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon
You could play your Deck Kaibaman-style with Sonic Bird, Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands, and Paladin of White Dragon for a quick Ritual strategy. Or toss in some DARK monsters like Sangan, Plaguespreader Zombie, Dark Horus, and The Dark Creator so you can play a pair of Chaos Sorcerers. Once you control the power of Blue-Eyes White Dragon, how you use it is up to you!
