What is better than a monster with 3000 atk? A monster with 3000 atk and a GREAT effect! Infernity Doom Dragon is just that monster! This card is going to be released in the upcoming "The Shining Darkness" Booster series, so I thought you might want to know what is in there and there is some good stuff!
This can be used as a great beatstick, or you can use its great effect. However, heads up, you need to have an empty hand! This would be great in infernity decks since they work with no hands, but it also can work with blackwings because their easy swarming ability may leave you with no hand, plus they are dark monsters so you can synchro summon this! The best part about this effect is that it is not limited to face-up monsters! You are able to destroy face-down monsters your opponent has! The draw back to that is that no damage will be inflicted. Better to destroy a face-down ryko than to atk it and be destroyed by its effect. Another great thing to point out, (see there is alot of greatness with this card) is that this can be used in any dark deck since it only needs a DARK attribute tuner. If you can get two of these on your field, your opponent will be scrambling!
Strategies and game play:
This will be used for atking or destroying more powerful monsters on your opponent's side of the field. This is the staple dragon in Infernity decks that will be coming in "The Shining Darkness" but, as stated before, it can be used in any dark deck. So you could just add this to your extra deck if you already have a dark deck! Also, those that use hopeless dragon decks or the F.G.D. fusion could add this to their arsenal for pure atking power!
Combos with other cards:
If this has gotten destroyed, never fear there are some really easy ways to get it back on your field! "Infernity Necromancer" can easy bring back any "Infernity" monster from your graveyard! There is also a new card coming out in "The Shining Darkness" called "Zero - Max" which lets you special summon any "Infernity" monster from your grave and then destroy every monster on your opponent's side of the field with lower atk than the monster you special summoned. Hopefully you choose "Infernity Doom Dragon" with "Zero - Max" cause that will devastate your opponent's field most likely.
Also there is a trap that works great with Infernities called "Phantom Hand" which for 1 turn removes all the cards in ur hand face-down. So with ur hand temporarily removed you can initiate Doom Dragon's devastating effect!
Ways to counteract it:
There are ways to defeat this, any card that negates and destroy's the activation of the monster (divine wrath, stardust) or if it doesn't get on the field (solemn judgment, bottomless trap hole). Also, you need to have an empty hand. Ya got a hand, ya got no effect.
Great atk, Great Effect!!!
There is only one disappointment with this dragon, you can't atk with Doom Dragon if you used it's effect. However, if you used it to destroy a more powerful monster, the same satisfaction of destroying a monster by battle is given by using it's effect since you still inflict damage to your opponent. Another weakness, but not a disappointment because this should be obvious, but you need to have an empty hand if you wish to use it's effect.
This next note doesn't relate the card by easy destruction, effect or anything like that, but a little peak in the future and we might find this card on the limited list. But that's a long ways away and it might not happen *crossing fingers*
Be on search for this powerful monster in "The Shining Darkness" as it comes in Ultra and Ultimate rare status!
Artwork and aesthetics:
The artwork shows a very fearsome dragon. Your opponent won't like the look of this dragon. ;)
This card is really great. Can't wait to get my hands on it that's for sure! At the end of this review I'd give it a 8. Because with no hand, there really isn't many surprises that you could spring on your opponent. But then again, ya got an "Infernity Doom Dragon" so you best be winning! Hope you enjoy the review!
