Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon

Level 9

LIGHT, Dragon/Synchro/Effect

ATK: 2500 DEF: 3000

Effect: 1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner Normal Monsters

When this card is Special Summoned: Dragon-Type monsters you currently control cannot be targeted or destroyed by card effects until the end of the next turn. Once per turn, during your Standby Phase: You can target 1 Normal Monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that target.

 

One of the two monsters that makes a BEWD deck actually halfway decent (or good in my opinion) hell it's normal monster (and Gemini) support in general, it's not just limited to BEWD however it is in decks that utilise dragons that this guy gets the most out of its effects. I haven't lost when I've summoned this guy (and now that I've said that the next duel I go into and summon this guy in, I'll probably lose) which proved its power to me, being able to protect your dragons from destruction and effects that target on not just on your turn but your opponent's as well as your next turn is a pretty powerful (and useful) effect and the ability to bring back a beater (usually) is an added bonus, this guy can turn BEWD into a gates boosted Grapha (only with Honest support.)

 

His attack and defense are also pretty impressive (well attack not so much) being the inverse of BEWD's which makes him pretty durable, however he's probably going to spend most of his time in defense until you decide to finish your opponent off. His protection effect also has a flaw; any effect that doesn't target or destroy (Spellbook of Fate immediately comes to mind) can get through, it's not a big flaw (I can't name too many cards that don't target or destroy in the same effect) and his resurrection ability only applies to vanilla monsters (although that's probably a good thing given REDMD's place on the lists) so it does cut down on his usage as does his summoning conditions. But all in all the pros far outweigh the cons with this guy and thanks to him and Maiden Blue-Eyes is actually relevant, probably.

It's total crap.  I'm upset konami made this card.  They are like spitting in my face and telling well here is crap. 

 

No, don't try to defend this garbage! It is bad!

 

It only protects itself b/c I doubt you will have another draogn when this card is summoned.  Also, he's a total stall.  I can't stress enough how this is counterproductive with Blue Eyes.  You need to go agrro or go home this format not stall.   I don't like the card at all!

 

I do however like Roar of the Silver Dragon and Boneyard, those cards are good.

I do disagree with the above in many way.

 

you can build a deck to summon multiple dragon and one azure dragon. the immunity is to all dragons you controls at any time  for the turn and during your opponent. Also the best thing is azure doesn't need to be on the field, it just only have to be special summon successfully.

 

Secondly, it's effect is on special summon and not synchro-summon so any method that can revive it from graveyard also grants immunity.

 

It's a great counter to big-eye and draccosack, probably better in control play style, and thrives better against non-back row decks easily.

azure-eyes silver dragon. i have 3 in the extra deck of my main build. pretty easy to summon and powerful effect.

summon silver dragon, set torrential tribute. next turn watch your opponent rage before he gets a minimum of 5500 in the face xD

 

edit: btw. there is not a single card in dragon rulers that can get rid of this guy until his protection runs off.

I really like it. Been using Spellbooks with Blue-Maiden and Blue-Eyes lately. I can easily summon it and then stall for a little bit lol. Good card overall.

What are you smoking and can I have some? Azure-Eyes and Maiden are some of the best support BEWD has had in a while (or ever) it would seem that you haven't even played a BEWD deck with the new support. Also you saying it's bad in this format, so is Dark Hole but you don't see anyone saying that THAT'S garbage.

False, Lucky, Gaios, Oblisk, and you can chalice a blaster. In any case Rulers can drop him easy.  The "currently" in his effect ruins him to be honest

Best support for BEWD in quite some time (and Maiden too). The artwork is sick and he looks like he's about to go on a rampage.

It's inferior to Maiden as a piece of support. 

 

I mean, this isn't amazing. But it's not terrible either. It's average in an above average meta. That's all I really have to say on it. Hell, it could even have been generic materials.

 

Also to the guy who said that you have to go aggro this format: War Gods.

In a way, I feel like it's kinda its own win condition, just cuz the thing is so bloody hard to get rid of. It's almost guaranteed to get at least 1 Vanilla back out bar a Compulsory, and that's already a ridiculous amount of damage.

Its effect(s) is great, but the best part of it is IMO its stats. 2.5k is good, yeah, but the 3k def is virtually impossible for the actually good XYZs to run over (no, Fran Ken does not qualify as good >_>).

 

In a way, I think they gave it too many good points, to be honest. It's still not enough to bring Blue-Eyes up to relevancy (ironically, Prophecy/Spellbooks are doing that job), especially considering it's not the easiest thing ever to summon, but it'll sure help.

 

It is essentially just a beatstick facilitator, but it's damn good at it.

And its art is hella awesome too.

It better in hieratic, summon a redmd and finish with this you can tribute him next turn after getting normal and go into messiar bounce redmd and revive him and so on, the "currently" really nerfs him tho



Shreik and Pojo still dont have currently it may not be there in the english version people...hopefully

This card is lovely in a Blue eyes deck. Especially if you have like 3 Azure-eyes.  Basically I summon the first azure with dragons next to it. And then summon another one. As my opponent desperately try to destroyed them. 

This can push dragon's deck a little bit up because of it "defensive" effect. 


I want to be the very best

Like one way ever waass.

To buy them is my real test, to duel them is my cause!!!

 

I will travel across the land, Searching far and wide.

For each duel monsters to understand, the heart of the carrdddds!

Yu-gi-oh(gotta buy them all)!!!!

What I love about this card is Thunder End Dragon, get two blue eyes out while his effect is still active and field nuke. 

 

None of your dragons die, their whole field of monsters goes xD

I love this card. I run two in Spellbooks. I summon it, next turn my opponent has to go on the defensive cause:

 

-They can't pop it with Dracco or Blaster

-They can't Big Eye it

-They can't discard with Kycoo to destroy it

-They can't use Bahamut to take it

-3000 def is a biotch to get over

-They can't pop it with Heavy Infantry or make Catastor to get over it.

-They have to set up because next turn, this thing will summon a Blue Eyes.

 

I also love the fact that if you were running a gemini deck, you could bring back Chithonian Dragon and have a double attacking 2400 monster on board. Only think I don't like is that you have to synch with a vanilla dragon. But thats what balances it out I guess. Also I think its great his effect triggers every time he is special summoned, not just when he is synchro summoned.

It doesn't specify vanilla dragon, all you need is 1 non-tuner vanilla, any vanilla.

True, but think about it. WHat other vanillas are you going to be running in a deck that uses this card that arent dragon? Only other card I really see people using to make this is 2 alexandrite dragons.

I have to disagree with you..... with the support it has you cannot write it off.....blue eyed maiden makes this card so easy to summon so this card is playable....and its effect makes it give you back the material you lost to summon it.....you said this card stalls..... but that's good... think about you summoning a blue eyes everytime on ur stand-by phase...  

 

Lastly this card is ment to control not stall....its protection effect activates everytime its special summoned not only on synchro think of possiblities with Call and REDMD

This card is the nuts in hiearatic...summon it and its instant REDMD next turn with messiar, trishula in 2 turns and a infinite loop with him as long as you have red murder and a lv 6 in hand
