Card Of The Day # 9 – Eclipse Wyvern
Light / Dragon / Effect Monster
ATK: 1600 DEF: 1000
If this card is sent to the Graveyard: You can banish 1 Level 7 or higher LIGHT or DARK Dragon-Type monster in your Deck. Then, if this card in the Graveyard is banished: Add the monster banished by this effect to your hand.
Eclipse Wyvern is another great card from the Draconic Legion Structure Deck. Eclipse Wyvern perfectly complements the chaos strategy. In the past the deck never really had an optimal target to Banish, one would just remove whichever Light or Dark that they didn’t think they would do any combos with or would want to Monster Reborn. But now chaos has an optimal target that will net them advantage when they Banish it. Getting to Banish your Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon and then get it back when you Special Summon a chaos card is just amazing. Some easy ways to get Eclipse Wyvern into the Graveyard with out Summoning it and waiting for it to die would be using Foolish Burial or Future Fusion to send it right from your deck to the Graveyard. The most common ways to Banish Eclipse Wyvern from your Graveyard would be to use chaos cards such as Lightpulsar Dragon, Darkflare Dragon, Chaos Sorcerer, Blackluster Soldier, or Dragons Mirror. Just like Eclipse Wyvern’s counterparts, Darkflare Dragon and Lightpulsar Dragon, this card combos very well with Chaos Zone, when you banish Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon for Eclipse Wyvern’s effect you get one Chaos Counter and when you Special Summon a chaos Monster you will get two more Chaos Counters as well as the Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon back, spectacular play.
This card is great in Chaos Dragons but really won’t see much play outside of that deck.
