Card Of The Day # 8 – Darkflare Dragon
Dark / Dragon / Effect Monster
ATK: 2400 DEF: 1200
You can Special Summon this card (from your hand) by banishing 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK monsters from your Graveyard. Once per turn: You can send 1 Dragon-Type monster each from your hand and Deck to the Graveyard to target 1 card from either player's Graveyard; banish that target.
Darkflare Dragon is another great chaos card that comes out in the new Draconic Legions Structure Deck. Like Lightpulsar Dragon it has the standard Special Summoning condition that most chaos cards have, and like Lightpulsar Dragon it doesn’t have restrictions on its summoning such as saying “it can only be Special Summoned by” or “it can not be Special Summoned except by” meaning it is much easier to abuse this card. Though this card isn’t really meant to be abused since it is more for set up and control. Darkflare Dragon is basically a Dragon Ravine and Dark Smog on legs. This is great to deal with your opponents combo cards in their Graveyard while setting up your own with cards such as Red-Eyes Wyvern or Eclipse Wyvern which both will set up your Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon plays for latter. Another interesting card to use with this would be The White Stone Of Legend, discard it or send it from your deck to the Graveyard and then search out your Blue-Eyes White Dragon, and it will give you some more chaos food for later. As I have mentioned in my previous article about Lightpulsar Dragon this combos well with Chaos Zone as well, Banishing two Monsters and getting two Chaos Counters.
Very solid card but it only really has a place in Chaos Dragons, Darkflare Dragon isn’t as spashable as cards like Chaos Sorcerer.
