General description:

This card is very very interesting. It's extremely selective in it's deck type though. This was the first fire searcher card. It didn't really see much use until later in the game's development. It's basically a Rumbling Terrahorn with 7000 power, double breaker, and a race specific search effect, as compared to Terrahorn's general search effect. Let's see how this card stacks up.

Uses:

This card would ONLY see use in a dragon deck with Armored Dragons. I would mostly suspect this card to be used to bring out Bajula, especially if they only have 1 copy of Bajula. I have seen it used to bring out Bombazar though, very rarely. Even though I use it alot, there really is not too much use for this card, unless you're playing a real Dragon deck. But, in a real dragon deck that has both Armored Dragons and Cocco Lupia, it is superior to Terrahorn.

Combos with other cards:

It would go good with Cocco Lupia, and very good with Bajula. It got popular, because, it appears at a very special point in the game. It appears about right after your opponent would have used up their weak destruction spells before its appearance, and would have probably already used up their Terror Pit. It's strong because it gives a free evolution base for Bajula, which is really really helpful. It can end the game, in a Bajula deck.

Ways to counteract it:

Nothing to say here. Blockers, Terror Pit, death smoke etc.

Strengths/Pros:

Is a very powerful creauture
Can search out Bajula
Double Breaker

Weaknesses/Cons:

Nothing other than the weaknesses that all other cards face.

Variations:

There is no direct variation of this card.

Artwork and aesthetics:

It is pretty cool, it has heads for hands.

Overall rating:

It's a 7 out of 10 generally, but, in an Armored Dragon deck, it's a 9.5 out of 10
