Rank 7, Earth, Psychic.

2 Level 7 monsters
During either player's turn, when a card or effect is activated that targets this face-up card: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy that card, then you can destroy 1 card on the field.


Gonna be in the new Number Hunters packs

http://yugioh.wikia..../Number_Hunters


Right, because Derp-mental Dragons and Derpmails TOTALLY need yet another broken, unstoppable, LOL easy-to-summon boss monster right Konami? Because we TOTALLY need MOAR power-creep in this game right Konami? Even the art on this card annoys me. Nothing much to say besides looking like an XX Saber Fulhelmknight poser. Wouldnt be scary at all if Rank 7 Xyz actually required a fair investment to bring out. But I'm sure everyone knows that's ancient history now ever since Konami threw the definition of "cost" out the window. Anyway, Discuss!!!

It's Konami man; you should always expect broken cards in each booster pack. :P

It's a budget Dracossack with a semi-decent effect. Not really much else to say. It'll definitely be for those who want to build Budget E Dragons.

It's really not too broken, it's what bring it out that kinda kills it for me.

True, but there is most of the time that 1 card in a booster pack that is broken. I'm not saying that Number 74 is the one in this case, but it is still a mean effect. :P

It's not broken, but it very annoyingly covers the weaknesses of Dragossack. Between protection from targeting and protection from destruction, E Drags are pretty much set defensively.

It still has to be targeted folks. I find The Mecha Phantom more annoying than this. That said, it's still powerful and will be obnoxious.

Broken? No - its limit on its negation effect determined that. Defeated by non-targeting cards like spellbook of fate

Good enough? Yep - anti big eye and dragossack.

Broken? Hahahaha no. Decent at best. As a rank 7, you really can't compare this to Big Eye or Dracossack, or hell, even with harder summoning conditions, Abyssgaios.
Main reason it's useful is because Big Eye can't target it, Blaster can't target it, Priestess can't target it, Dracossack can't target it. Basically, it's the anti-XYZ for what we've got.

And even then it still loses to Abyssgaios.

budget compared to draco im sure.

That being said, card looks good sure, but you didn't see thought ruler archfiend get much play either

and this is technically the exact same card, except instead of Life point plussing you get a pop as the benefit

Rather a pop then LP tbh, most people would agree on that.

Most expensive card in HA7? $25ish.
I think given how expensive rank 7s are right now (other than Gaia, which isn't worth the 2 lv7 cost) that's budget.

The LP was easier to get with archfiend than a pop here. obviously no-one would be foolish enough to target this, and wasting your own lance/dress on this just for a pop isn't a good play.


The purpose of this card is just to tank the 1 for 1 cards like fate, and obviously he is fatter than priestess. the card is good no doubt, but I'm just saying archfiend didn't get much play either.


Where draco and big eye have more offensive, ignition effects, this guy waits for something to happen to have potential.

Oh i totally agree with that, I was comparing archfiend and this card, in the same situation, rather use this then archfiend is all. It won't get much play but it will be one of those "I have an extra slot and nothing to put in, might as well use him in case of a certain situation," Extra deck cards.

I like it. Mainly because it might be affordable lol. I wanna see a better picture of it's art.
No, Tony Stark plays yugioh. Not pokemon. I run a multi-million dollar company. I don't have time for IV breeding and EV training.

The important thing about this is:

It completely changes the Incarnate Mirror. It stops being a Big Eye war, and skill comes into it to a degree. Which frankly just made the format a tad better IMO.

Also the OP has far to much hate for this. Far far to much. It's not that good by the standards of Rank 7's, and is just fine in general.

I don't want to offend but i read a lot of bhurt from the OP. How this is even broken or unstoppable? A simple Torrential kill it. If you target it on purpose you deserve to lose a card. Dragosack and Big Eye are still FAR superior choices for edrags, that won't play this card a lot (just like Celestial Dragon).

Bring Heavy Storm back TCG!

This thing isn't broken or OP in any way. Infact, I think this is one of the better things Konami has done in a long while.

E-Drags were a mistake but at least the mirror match-up is a lot more interesting now. Though honestly, I think I would run one of these instead.

http://yugioh.wikia....at_Moral_Leader

Even without Norito, it is still better in the E-drag mirror then Master of Blades.

Good job Konami for making this game a little bit more skill based again.
