What’s going on fellow duelist, today I have yet another Yugioh TCG review for you guys. Recently my friend from Konami gave me the privilege to review one of their newer sets and that’s the new Dragons of Legend 2. This set was an amazing set, so good I ended up buying a whole booster box and some to try and get the cards I want. So about the set a box comes with 24 packs and in each pack contains 5 cards. It will have 4 super rares and 1 secret rare in each pack. This set contained support the red eyes and toon decks, also introduced two new arc types prediction princess and aquaactresses. I’ll cover a little on some of the arc types in the set and let you know what I thought about it at the end.
First off I’ll talk about the prediction princesses. I actually liked these cards, they are all flip effect monsters that have some really good effects. Three of them search either for a ritual spell, a ritual monster, or any level 3 or higher flip effect monster, but the ones I enjoy are the ones that alter the field. Petalelf allows you to change all face attack position monsters your opponent controls and switch them to face down defense, and they are unable to change their positions afterwards. Then to complement that the other monster, Astromorrigan, allows you to destroy as many defense position monsters on your opponents side of the field and lose 500 for each monster destroyed this way.
Now they also have a boss monster, Prediction Princess Tarotrei, she is an amazing card her effect says,” You can Ritual Summon this card with “Prediction Ritual”. During your End Phase: You can Special Summon 1 Flip monster from your hand or Graveyard in face-down Defense Position. You can only use 1 of the following effects of “Prediction Princess Tarotrei” per turn, and only once that turn.- During either player’s turn: You can target 1 face-down monster on the field; change it to face-up Attack Position.- During either player’s turn: You can target 1 face-up monster on the field; change it to face-down Defense Position.” So this card specials a flip monster every turn and also has a built in book of moon and taiou. But there are still some more amazing cards in this set.
Next up is the legendary knight and dragons. Now like the previous dragons of legend set it had the legendary dragon spell card, the legendary knight monster to go with the spell, and of course the fusions. This set is no different we had received both Hermos and Critias in both spell and knight form and we also got some amazing fusions to go with each. For Hermos he had about 4 fusions that can easily be made with the claw of Hermos and either a dragon, warrior, or a spellcaster type monster. Each are very good in certain situations, but the one I like is goddess bow, it allows you to equip it to any monster on the field and then, when in the battle phase, you can negate the first card your opponent activated during either players battle phase. In addition to this effect you can make a second attack with the monster that goddess bow is equipped to.
Now the Critias cards are where the insane stuff happens. Just like Hermos, Critias is the same with the spell card, but now this time your looking for certain cards like mirror force, tyrant wings, and crush card virus. So just like the claw of Hermos, you activate the Fang of Critias and tribute one of the selected cards like mirror force and then you can get out mirror force dragon. His effect reads,” Must be Special Summoned with “The Fang of Critias”, using “Mirror Force”, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. When a monster(s) you control is targeted for an attack or by an opponent’s card effect (except during the Damage Step): You can destroy all cards your opponent controls”. All the legendary dragon cards have a ton of potential and I would not doubt that you will find a lot of decks running them or maybe even siding for them.
Time to talk about the arc type that I got really excited about before it came out, and that is the toon cards. Back in the day toon decks were alright they had small windows of success and that was because of the fact that toon world had to be on the field to actually do any type of plays with the toon monsters. Now that this set released a ton of toon support you are for sure gonna see a lot of toon decks out there. There’s three cards I want to talk about comic hand, mimicat, and toon kingdom, all are amazing cards and all are just for toon decks. First off comic hand is a decent card it acts just like a snatch steal but with no downside. All you have to have is toon world on the field then your good, you take control of one of your opponents monsters and then make it a toon card, then if your opponent does not control any toon monsters, it can attack your opponent directly. So you get to take a monster your opponent has and have it attack your opponent directly with now down side.
Mimicat is on a higher tier then comic hand its effect is,” If you control “Toon World” and a Toon monster: Target 1 card in your opponent’s Graveyard; if it is a monster, Special Summon it to your side of the field, or if it is a Spell/Trap Card, Set it to your side of the field. You can only activate 1 “Mimicat” per turn”. So this card is like a monster reborn but to anything your opponent has and like comic hand all you need is just toon world on the field to do all these shenanigans. Finally toon kingdom, the card most people were looking for in this set its effect is,” When this card is activated: Banish 3 cards from the top of your Deck, face-down. This card’s name becomes “Toon World” while in the Field Zone. Your opponent cannot target Toon monsters you control with card effects. If a Toon monster(s) you control would be destroyed by battle or card effect, you can banish 1 card from the top of your Deck, face-down, for each of those monster(s) instead”. So this card acts like toon world, can protect all your toon monsters from being destroyed and prevent all your opponents card effects that target toon monsters void, toon kind is one of the best cards I have seen in yugioh in a long time.
When I had bought the box of cards I was hoping to get at least two of mimicat and toon kingdom, but that didn’t happen, those two cards are really hard to get because they are short printed, meaning that there were only a few made compared to the rest of the cards in this set. Now im not saying that its impossible to get them, its just going to be very difficult to get the cards that you want from it. I’m gonna give this set a 9/10, the reason for the near perfect score is that the cards that I wanted were the ones that of course are the ones that were short printed. Now it wouldn’t be so bad if they were a reasonable price to buy online, but once they saw how rare they were both mimicat and toon kingdom almost shot up to $33 a piece.
Meaning im gonna spend $200 for 6 cards and that made me feel saddened that in order to build a deck I was looking forward into making, I got to spend a ton of money and that’s why I had to knock it down. But other then that I really enjoyed everything this set had to offer. So if you guys agree with my review comment and and let me know why you think.
Also FBG has cards to trade, so if you are looking for something let us know and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Thanks and happy dueling everyone.
