Just when you were happy that Uberdragon Bajula got restricted to one copy per deck... He has a kid... who's not restricted and has an ability just as annoying as his father's depending on the situation. Dang It!!
For every Veteran Duelist who uses Dragons and/or faced Fire Decks, Uberdragon Bajula was always there. Evolving from Bolshack Dragon or whatever Dragon you had on the field thanks to your buddy: Cocco Lupia, You either commanded, or stared down this firebreathing Mana Guzzler, which everytime it attacked, you'd have 3 shields broken, and 2 mana sent to the grave. Not fun. His Son, which is an updated version of the card, instead breaks 3 shields, takes one mana, and burns away a creature with power 5000 or less. Still not fun.
Strategies and game play:
As implied, Bajula can be found in either a Dragon Deck or a Fire deck, as it needs to evolve from a Dragon in order to be summoned. (Fact: Dragonoids don't count noobs)Dragons are races like: Armored Dragons, Poseida Dragons, Appolonia Dragons, Earth Dragons, Zombie Dragons and Volcano Dragons to name a few. Best strategy i can think of is to make either one of the decks mentioned, and figure out a way to get dragons out early, either mana build or reduce the cost of them.
Combos with other cards:
Mana Building and Cost reduction are great strategies when it comes to dragons. Fire Birds are found in all civilizations and provide great support for Dragons and vice versa. Cocco Lupia From The Fire Civilization reduces all of your Dragons by 2 mana, making Bajula from 7 to 5. Other cards like my personal Favorite: The Nature Civilization, Rule Mana Building, with Creatures like Bronze arm tribe, and Spells like Faerie Life. both sends the top card of your deck to mana. And you always have the glorious treasure his Father left him: The Cross Gear: Bajula's Soul
Ways to counteract it:
The Classic Rush Deck, which helps end the game as fast as possible before Bajula can come out, summoning something over 13000 attack before he shows up (Which would be hard if he's already there). Water decks can bounce him back into your opponents hand, and Darkness cards like terror pit or discard cards can get rid of him faster.
7 Mana, 13000 Triple Breaker. Like his predecessor, Bajula the Second is just as Awesome/Annoying as the First.
At seven mana it's pretty steep and will be hard to bring out if the deck isn't properly constructed for dragons. Other than that he's pretty tough.
Artwork and aesthetics:
I really like the artwork since the Upgrade gives Bajula a better look to it. When it first appeared in DM-08, Epic Dragons of Hyperchaos, it looked like Carnage (Slimy red alien from Spider-man btw) in a dragon form, it's body being red and black like it surrounded by a never ending chain. Now he looks like a Humanoid Dragon with not a chain, but a gun that takes up the upper left corner of the card. better illustrated than it's predecessor.
Given the fact that it's 7 mana and 13000 Triple breaker, that's pretty sweet. the fact that it's not restricted (Yet) is also Great. yeah it's effect got less extreme but hey, you can have up to four, and it's not banned. I give it a perfect 10/10
