Dragons are ingrained into every season of Yu-Gi-Oh, here’s your chance to write your own legend – Yu-Gi-Oh! Legendary Dragon Decks Review
Dragons are part of many cultures, with seemingly no evidence of ever existing. Yet they are recognized, honored, and even worshipped, throughout the world. Being born in the year of the dragon, dragons have played a noticeable role in my life as long as I can remember. Basically, what I’m getting at, is I like dragons and I know a lot of the world does too. Which is probably why they have been so prominent in Yu-Gi-Oh!.
The Legendary Dragon Decks gives you 3 highly structured decks that contain some of the most notable dragons throughout numerous series: The Legendary Dragons of Atlantis!, Cyber Dragons!, and Dimensional Dragons! You can read the information about the cards. I went over the major cards in the decks in the announcement piece.
Of the decks, I am extremely fond of the Legendary Dragons of Atlantis. I am extremely biased as that was the last major season of the show I watched adamantly, but after playing with the deck, it’s the easiest to understand and works very quickly. It’s really easy to pull out a Legendary Dragon Fusion, or the Legendary Knights and these cards are incredibly powerful and essentially don’t require summoning/control or even having the cards in hand. It’s an incredibly powerful and fast deck.
However, The Dragons of Atlantis is not really focused on the Dragons it’s focused on the Dark Magician. I didn’t realize that Yugi only used Timaeus on the Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl, it seemed like he used Timaeus on numerous cards. Aside from Dark Magician the Dragon Knight, none of the holographic cards weren’t even dragons. The other holos are Dark Magical Circle, Apprentice Illusion Magician, Magician Navigation, and Eternal Soul. Which are all great cards, and the deck is pretty great, but it just seems like a missed opportunity that none of the Legendary Dragons, or their Knight forms, are holographic. Also, Destiny Knight isn’t included, and it’s kind of the ultimate form of the Dragons of Atlantis. Though, Dark Magician the Dragon Knight is the much easier to summon.
Of the other two decks, the Cyber Dragons deck is a lot of fun, but the Dimensional Dragons feel overall more powerful. The Cyber Dragons deck is like chain after chain after chain of cards that can be fun, but takes a while and gives a lot of opportunities for interruptions. I’m also not a big fan of polymerization. Then there’s the Dimensional Dragons deck which can fill the field in a single turn with Pendulum summons, and since Pendulum monsters go to the extra deck when destroyed, you have a nearly endless supply monsters.
Overall, the Legendary Dragon Decks are extremely powerful and fast decks that are amazing as is or great bases to fledge out a themed deck. Personally, I am a huge fan of the Legendary Dragons of Atlantis deck, and have always wanted a Dark Magician deck, got a nice two for one there. I also really like the Dimensional Dragons deck, and feel I have a thorough understanding of the Pendulum summoning system, whereas I am now more convinced that I do not like Synchro and Xyz summonings because of the Cyber Dragons deck. Regardless, the Legendary Dragon Decks provide amazing decks, and cards, that are great additions to any duelist and collector for a more than reasonable price. If you like dragons or Dark Magician, it is a must-have.
