Be Prepared for more Armed Dragons!
Chazz it up again with the Armed Dragons. These WIND Dragons level up by sending another Dragon from the hand to the GY, but their defining trait is that their effects trigger when sent to the GY to activate another Dragon’s effect. While I’ve covered this theme twice before, I wanted to take a stab at a pure build – that was, until I threw in the Speedroid Engine I talked about in my last Creative Channelside Chat. Overall, this deck is about triggering your Armed Dragon Thunder monsters: LV3 draws you a card; LV5 tutors a Level 5 + WIND dragon; and LV7 tutors any ‘Armed Dragon’ card. Led by Armed Dragon LV10 White and Armed Dragon Thunder LV10, this deck has boss Dragons galore, especially when you throw in Pile Armed Dragon (YGOrg Translation) and Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon. But let’s talk about some of my new tech cards.
Instead of just relying on Artillery Catapult Turtle, I’m now also including Knight of Armor Dragon, a Ritual tutor for WIND Dragons, and three copies of Pre-Preparation of Rites! Since Knight can tutor Armed Dragon Thunder LV7 from the deck, this combo only requires one discard to Level Up to your LV10, giving you more cards in hand to play with and unlock a stronger end board! Also, I’m also running 3 copies of Dragunity Guisarme (YGOrg Translation), a Level 3 tuner that can be used to recover your Armed Dragon LV3 when Normal Summoned. This pairs well with Level 7 Armed Dragon monsters to make powerful WIND Synchros such as Baronne de Fleur or Dragunity Knight – Areadbhair, but it also can combine into R3NK Xyz monsters such as Totem Bird or Leviair the Sea Dragoon. Finally, I’m using a full Speedroid Engine to give the deck more pseudo-draw power to get to the cards you need, especially since almost all the deck is WIND! So hope you enjoy as you check out how well my new iteration of Armed Dragons can soar.
