Neo Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon

July 15th, 2016

Your Blue-Eyes Deck got even better with the cards from Shining Victories but it’s about to go over the top with the newest Blue-Eyes Fusion Monster: Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon!

This behemoth has the same stats as the original Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, 4500 ATK, 3800 DEF, making it bigger than most other monsters in the game including most of the supersized ones like Kozmo Dark Planet, but this 3-headed monstrosity has a very fitting effect to back it up; if it’s the only face-up card you control and it was Fusion Summoned, after it attacks, you can send a Blue-Eyes Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck to the Graveyard to have it attack again.  You can do this twice per turn, giving your three-headed dragon three attacks in total!  And at 4500 ATK, Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon can end the Duel in a single Battle Phase!  Unlike most similar effects, the additional attacks don’t have to be on other monsters so Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon can potentially make three direct attacks!  While you won’t be able to use the multi-attacking effect if you control other face-up cards like Mausoleum of White, 4500 ATK is still nothing to scoff at.

But as good as attacking three times is, Neo Blue-Eyes White Dragon also has a Graveyard effect.  If a card or effect is activated that targets Blue-Eyes monster(s) you control, you can banish Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon from your Graveyard to negate and destroy the card.  This protects your Blue-Eyes from threats like Kozmo Dark Destroyer, The Phantom Knights of Break Sword, Farfa, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss and Castel, the Skyblaster Musketeer.  How can you get Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate into the Graveyard?  How about another copy of Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon?  If you have three in your Extra Deck, you can Fusion Summon one of them, then use its effect to attack two additional times, sending the other two Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimates to the Graveyard, giving you two chances at protecting your 4500 ATK monster.

You’ll need three Blue-Eyes White Dragons in order to Fusion Summon Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon and while it’s easier to use a card like Dragon’s Mirror to banish Blue-Eyes from your Graveyard, it’s a steep price to pay for the Summon since a banished Blue-Eyes White Dragon is hardest to Summon back to the field.  If you’re focused on Summoning Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, you may want to go with a more conventional Fusion Spell Card like Polymerization which will put Blue-Eyes White Dragon into your Graveyard where you can use cards like Return of the Dragon Lords, Silver’s Cry, Maiden with Eyes of Blue and Beacon of White to Special Summon them back to the field with relative ease.  Getting the requisite Blue-Eyes to your hand and field should be a breeze if you’re using The Melody of Awakening Dragon, Blue-Eyes Alternative White Dragon, Maiden with Eyes of Blue, The White Stone of Legend and The White Stone of Ancients.  And if you’re running Polymerization, you can use King of the Swamp to get Polymerization from your Deck to your hand, or use King of the Swamp as a substitute for one of your Blue-Eyes for the Fusion Summon of Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon!
