Yugioh Dark Monsters – Strongest Attribute

I think dark yugioh monsters are the strongest in Yugioh. Most of the strong yugioh cards have dark attributes such as Dark Armed Dragon.

Yugioh Dark GrepherYesterday, I received a comment  asking me what the best monster attribute in Yugioh was. Though I replied with Dark attribute monsters are the best, every type of attribute has its own characteristics. Light attribute monsters are usually fairies and they mostly have healing effects. Earth attribute monsters are the most common, water attribute monsters rely heavily on field spells, etc… However I feel that  it is easier to create startegies with dark attribute monsters.

Yugioh Dark Armed Dragon VS. Judgement Dragon

Dark Armed Dragon and Judgement Dragon are two of the strongest monsters in Yugioh! However, which one is stronger, Dark Armed Dragon or Judgement Dragon?

1. Dark Armed Dragon
Dark Armed Dragon is one of the strongest monsters in the game with 2800 attack points and a stellar effect. It is pretty easy to summon him as well, especially if you run a fiend deck. Dark Armed Dragon cannot be normal summoned or set, however if you have three dark monsters in your graveyard, you can special summon it. By removing one dark monster from your graveyard, DAD can destroy one card on the field. Sounds like a decent effect, right? However, if you run a Dark-Attributed/Fiend deck, DAD’s effect could nuke your opponent. By stocking up large sums of dark monsters in your grave, DAD could easily clear your opponent’s whole field and make space for direct attack!Artwork: 6/10, Deck
Adaptation (How useful it can be in various decks): 8/10, Effect: 8/10, Power: 9/10, Playability (In its respective deck): 9/10, Game Changer: 10/10. Overall, DAD gets a rating of 8.3/10 – B.

2. Judgement Dragon
Another incredible monster, Judgement Dragon puts D in Dragon. Not only does it look awesome, but everything about it is awesome as well. Unless you run a Lightsworn deck, Judgement is pretty much impossible to bring out. However, it still is the best support card a Lightsworn deck can have. Not only does JD have 3000 attacks points and 2600 defense points, it has a really good effect as well. It can only be special summoned by having four, different Lightsworns in your grave. You can pay 1000 life points to destroy all cards on the field, so unless your opponent can somehow defeat JD, it can end the duel in three turns (or less, depending on how much life points your foe has). The only negative side to JD’s effect is that you have to remove four cards from the top of your deck every turn! Still, it is a very powerful monster.Artwork: 8/10, Deck Adaptation: 1/10, Effect: 10/10, Power: 10/10, Playability (in its respective deck): 8/10, Game Changer: 10/10. Overall, Judgement Dragon gets a rating of 7.8 – C+.

Dark Armed Dragon
And DAD is the winner, although it was pretty expected. The sole reason of Dark Armed Dragon’s victory is because it is a much versatile monster that can be useful in 90% of decks. Judgement Dragon however, cannot be of any help to a deck that doesn’t use Lightsworns so its Deck Adaptation rank tanked. You can apply the same theory to DAD too, “It won’t be of any help to a deck that doesn’t use three dark monsters or more.” That’s true, however a lot more people have dark monsters in their decks than Lightsworns. Effect wise though, Judgement Dragon outmatches DAD completely, but overall, DAD is the better monster!

Lightsworn Deck

X-Sabers, Six Samurai, etc… are just a couple of very powerful Yugioh meta decks, but a very ovverated Yugioh meta deck is the Lightsworn deck and I will explain my opinion.

X-Sabers, Six Samurai, etc… are just a couple of very powerful Meta decks. The term ‘Meta’ refers to a group of decks that dominate play in a certain areas. Other Meta decks you have probably heard of are Blackwings, Gladiator Beasts, and Lightsworns. Now, I have dueled against several Lightsworn decks and usually defeat them. For those who don’t know, the primary goal of a Lightsworn is to mill several cards from your deck in order to summon Judgement Dragon, which requires four Lightsworn monsters in the graveyard to be summoned. However, though Judgement Dragon is strong, should it truly make Lightsworn decks rank highly among duelists?

Before you pro-Lightsworn readers start hounding me, here is my argument: Lightsworn decks revolve around summoning a monster who can be destroyed by a card effect at anytime. Sure you may have Dark Bribe or Solemn Warning/Judgement set, but a simple Dark Hole or a Lightning Vortex can eradicate it. Now, I know that logic applies to many monsters, like Dark Armed Dragon and Herald of Perfection, two monsters that are equally as powerful as Judgement Dragon. However, in DAD’s case, it doesn’t have a deck that revolves around specifically summoning itself (Tele-DAD was more about quick synchro summoning, with DAD as a key tool to do so). In Herald’s case, all good Perfection decks either have Royal Decree to negate Trap Holes and/or have several Herald-of-Light monsters that can negate Trap Holes/Solemns as well.

Another bad thing about Lightsworns is that they mill so much in order to bring out Judgement Dragon. If you summon Judgement Dragon and it gets negated, you just lost half your deck trying to futilely play it. I think Lightsworn decks are good, but I just don’t think they deserve the high-level status they have. What are your guys’ views?

My Dark Armed Dragon Deck

Last month, I decided to create a dark monster deck that revolved around summoning Dark Armed Dragon and The Wicked Avatar. It was a decent deck, but I believed it had the potential to surpass my Infernity-Dark World deck. I knew in order for it to reach its maximum strength, I had to add more dark oriented spells and traps, add more swarm monsters, and replace Rainbow Dark Dragon with another trump card. Last week, after buying five Phantom Darkness booster packs and acquiring a super rare Dark Armed Dragon to be my ace, I received the proper additions to create my ultimate dark deck (obviously, there were a few forbidden cards in the deck, so it is only a deck for leisure duels).

The point of this deck is to quickly bring out Dark Armed Dragon through spells like Graceful Charity and then quickly swarm dark monsters in order to play The Wicked Avatar, then remove the monsters in my grave to summon Rainbow Dark Dragon. Due to The Wicked Avatar’s effect, my opponent would not be able to activate any spells or traps for two turns, allowing me to destroy them with my high powered monsters. Monsters like Witch of the Black Forest and Dark Grepher makes this a fast process. If my opponent was able to halt my strategy, I had cards such as Dark Necrophear, Relinquished, and Blast Sphere as back ups. Overall, I’d say this deck is Dark Armed Dragon Burn deck.

The only weakness this deck has is the weak spell and trap support. I don’t really need to utilize much spells or traps for my strategies, but it would still be useful if I had some in the scenario that both my plan a and b were halted, in which case I would have to really on my various dark monsters (Dark Crusader, Barrel Dragon). Otherwise though, I think this deck is good enough to take on a lot of decks out there, however, it is strategies like the ones I use in this deck that make many of these cards forbidden!

Do you guys have any suggested improvements I should make on this deck? If so, list them in your comments.

Top 15 Strong and Easy to Summon Monsters Part 3

Here is part three of the list:

5. Dark Armed Dragon

Dark Armed Dragon is equivalent to the Lebron James of Yugioh. It’s a great card, very powerful, over-hyped sometimes but a great addition to any deck. Dark Armed Dragon is just too easy play, especially in dark attribute decks (the most commonly used decks in Yugioh). All it takes to summon D.A.D. is to have three dark monsters in your graveyard, which is a simple task which can be made even easier with a Graceful Charity or a Card Destruction. D.A.D. has a pretty sweet effect as well: by removing one dark monster from your graveyard, it can destroy any card on the field. That’s not only a great effect for clearing the field for direct attacks, but you can also use D.A.D’s to get rid of your opponent’s suspicious and dangerous traps. D.A.D. seems like a killer, but it has a big weakness: remove all the dark monsters from your foe’s grave, and it’s mightily weakened. This can be easily done with a Soul Release; that’s why it should become the basis of any Anti-DAD deck.

4. Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning

Black Luster Soldier EOTB is obviously the powerhouse monster of Yugioh. It’s fairly easy to summon; all you have to do is remove a light and dark monster from your graveyard. It can destroy one monster per turn through it’s effect, opening up attacking space for other monsters. When Black Luster Soldier, EOTB destroys a monster, it can attack again. That’s a strong effect considering that it could then wipe out your opponent’s field of monsters. That effect allows EOTB and the rest if your platoon of monsters to attack your foe directly and deal some serious damage. Just like DAD however, you can easily prevent the summoning of EOTB with cards like Soul Release,

3. Gorz Emissary of Darkness

Gorz is probably the easiest to summon in this list. All your opponent has to do is deal damage to you; even a dealing a mere 50 life points would cause Gorz to be special summoned. Not only can Gorz, a strong monster with 2700 attack points, arrive to the duel, he would bring this mates token one and token two as well. If your foe inflicts battle damage to you, when Gorz is played you can also summon two tokens with attack and defense equal to the amount of damage taken. Gorz’s tokens are great as tributes, as offensive monsters, and even synchro material monsters for a synchro monster. You could tune a Alien Ammonite with a Gorz token to synchro summon Black Winged Dragon! If your opponent inflicts effect damage to you however, Gorz is still summoned but you deal the same amount of damage you took back to your opponent rather than special summoning tokens. Gorz is just a fantastic card and I’m glad that he is easily findable at your local stores!

2. Stardust Dragon

Dragons were only known to be the strongest type of monsters but until Tyrant Dragon and Decoy Dragon, I haven’t seen as good of a defensive dragon as Stardust. With 2500 attack points, it can kill you in offense, but with its effect, it can save your butt on the defensive side. If your opponent activates a spell, trap, or monster effect during a crucial moment for you in the duel, no worries. All you have to do is remove Stardust Dragon from play and boom, your foe’s card’s effect is negated and the card is destroyed! The best part is, Stardust Dragon comes back for more at the end of the turn. Unlike EOTB or DAD, it’s very difficult to destroy Stardust Dragon. It’s basically impossible to destroy it by a card effect, and it’s very tough to be beat it in battle. Stardust Dragon is also a synchro monster, making it fairly easy to play as well. This dragon is surely a God.
