First, sorry that this article is type on today rather than Monday. I really don't have time since I have 2 test this week, so, after all of those things gone, it's time for me to update the site.
Welcome to Dragon Week! Of course, this is not the first thing we (me and Spikes) had done to the theme, as you can see, the two card reviews are both Dragons. Of course, as usual on Theme week, we would have a Structure-fix (which SHOULD come on Saturday if I'm not lazy...) and really, maybe a Card analysis article.
Anyway, just, WHAT THE HECK is Dragon??
1. A mythical monster traditionally represented as a gigantic reptile having a lion's claws, the tail of a serpent, wings, and a scaly skin.
1. A fiercely vigilant or intractable person.
2. Something very formidable or dangerous.
3. Any of various lizards, such as the Komodo dragon or the flying lizard.
4. Archaic. A large snake or serpent.
From the beginning of the game, Dragons are BIG, HUGE monster. Just how huge?? Of the 79 Dragons in this game:
1. Two of the highest attack monsters are Dragons (FGD/Knight of Ultimate Dragon)
2. 49 out of 79 have Level 5 or more
3. One of the largest Level 4 monster ([Rare Metal Dragon] with 2400 attack, only lower than [G Kozaki]), tie with [Beast Warrior] for Level 4 1900-2000 attack. They're not the biggest in 4 star, but they ARE in others.
As a big "duh", all Dragons have a BIG wing, some does looks like a Lizard or Serpent ([Evil Night Dragon], [Yamata no Doragon]). What about others??
I don't really know about the older Dragons (really, the older cards are just so random that it's hard to know that they actually exist!), but just some examples to the definition:
Lion's Claws: Victory Dragon (some of them have Elephant-like leg...)
Tail of Serpent: Really, all...
Scaly Skin: Cave Dragon
Wing: I cannot find any Dragons without Wing!
At last, the Dragon are describe as some people that are Dangerous, Vigilant...WHY it could be use this way?? Just by looking at the types of attack they could use...
REBD: Black Flame Blot (it's a BLOT!)
Horus: Blue Lizard Flame like "burn"
Armed Dragon: Spike Cannon...
Tyrant Dragon: Stomping Crush (and a lot of others, just look at the Dragon support Magic/Trap from SC and you can find how much TD can do)
Chaos Emperor Dragon: Self Explode!!
How they're Vigilant?
1. The Armor
2. Their size = they WANT to attack you!
Now, Dragon also varies from Main-Type to Main-Type. How?? Dragons can pretty much live in all the places you can imagine (of course, if they're BIG enough!). However, there're certain types that Dragon sub-type have "dominance".
This is the monsters stay on the ground, or monsters that is "make of" stuff from ground (dirt/mud). Since Dragons have wings, they would probably fly. Also, Dirt/Mud is not HARD stuff, they're so soft, they could be smash by other Dragons easily.
Example of in-favor: None
Example of out-of favor: Death Vostaglufh (Death = Earth??)
Dragons are monsters that fly around all the time (almost all Dragons in M:tG have the effect "Flying", if not all). What's related to be sky?? Wind. Just so normal...anyway...
Example of one: Dol Dora
Example of "out of flavor": Armed Dragon (Armor is not make out of wind!)
Usually, cards in this type are the "holy monsters". While Dragon are harmful in most way, they can be the "holy object" that people praise for, or "god" send them to work. Also, Light can means Technology, and if Dragons with technology is not man make, they ARE Dragons!
Example of in-flavor: Divine Dragon - Ragnarok
Example of "out of flavor": None.
While this beast can be use by Holy one, they could also be use by the evils. Also, by the definition of "Dragon", they are "dangerous" creatures. Dragon, if not controlled, can just rage over the world and destory everything.
Example of in-flavor: Destroyer Dragon - Gandora
Example of "out of flavor": Red Eyes Black Dragon (they come from the flame, as shown in Yu-Gi-Oh GX)
As I said, Dragons want to have hard form. Also, this game have the sub-type "Sea Dragon", which is pretty much...ehh...Water/Dragon (they should be combine!!). EXAMPLE?? I wish...there's ZERO Water/Dragon in this game!
The attack of a Dragon sometimes involve "flame". Well, it's common sense that "flame" is associate with Fire main-type. Also, the explosiveness of Dragons can also catograize under this type.
Example of in-flavor: Black *Flame* Dragon of Horus LV4/6/8
Example of out-of-flavor: Masked Dragon (just do not find the art to have that Dragon to be explosive!)
OK, this may do it for this article.
