[Yu-Gi-Oh! News] Dracoslayer Special Feature

“Dracoslayer” Special Feature: Manipulate your Pendulum Monsters! Perform Fusion, Synchro and Xyz After Pendulum Summoning!

We’re introducing the “Dracoslayer” series that first appeared in “Clash of Rebellion“, and gained more cards in “Dimension of Chaos” and “Breakers of Shadow“! It’s a powerful theme that works together as a team using Fusion Monsters, Synchro Monsters, Xyz Monsters and Pendulum Monsters together via Pendulum Summons!

Let’s check out their quirks and features here!

Introducing “Dracoslayer” Pendulum Monsters!

The Pendulum Effect of “Luster Pendulum, the Dracoslayer” is an effect you have to see! By sending your Pendulum Monsters to the Extra Deck, you can add a Pendulum Monster with the same name from your Deck to your hand, allowing you to set up for a more explosive Pendulum Summon! It’s a powerful effect for various Decks centered around Pendulum Summon as their means to fight! Also, since it’s a tuner, it’s quite helpful for Synchro Summon “Ignister Prominence, the Blasting Dracoslayer” with an intense and explosive effect!

[ATK 1850/DEF 0]
(A Pendulum Monster That’s Also A Tuner)
Cannot Special Summon Fusion, Synchro or Xyz Monsters using this card as a Material, except “Dracoslayer” monsters.
【Pendulum Scale】 5
【Pendulum Effect】 ①: Once per turn, if you have a card in your other Pendulum Zone: You can destroy that card, and if you do, add 1 card from your Deck to your hand, with the same name as that card.

The Pendulum Effect of “Master Pendulum, the Dracoslayer”, can be used to destroy a card in your opponent’s Pendulum Zone! Also, you can destroy a card in your Pendulum Zone, making it quite useful when you want to change the cards in your Pendulum Zone! And since it’s a Normal Monster with no Monster Effect, you can proactively use the effects of Normal Monster Support like “Rescue Rabbit”, “Painful Decision” or “Unexpected Dai”!

Master Pendulum, the Dracoslayer
[ATK 1950/DEF 0]
“Luster Pendulum, the Dracoslayer” after having gained power from his comrades. He seems to be have manifested draconic power similar to the mysterious hexes used by the clan of the Dracoverlord, but he has lost all memories of who he was before he became the Dracoslayer, so the truth is unknown. Believing the “Dragon Alchemy” is the key to breaking this curse and unlocking his memories, he continues his journey, fighting the evils of the Dracoverlord wherever he finds them.
【Pendulum Scale】 3
【Pendulum Effect】 ①: You can target 1 card in either player’s Pendulum Zone; destroy it. This effect can only be used once while this card is face-up in the Pendulum Zone.

Introducing “Dracoslayer” Fusion, Synchro and Xyz Monsters!

The “Dracoslayer” Fusion, Synchro and Xyz monsters each have two powerful effect, their ① effect is an effect that involves Pendulum Monsters, while their ② effect Special Summons a “Dracoslayer” Pendulum Monster (Each of them Special Summons from a different location, though.)!

By utilizing each of their effects along with Pendulum Summoning, you can aim to Special Summon “Dracoslayer” Pendulum Monsters from various locations (Deck, Hand, Graveyard and Extra Deck) to set up for various combos, it’s possible to set things up to allow you to call each of the three “Dracoslayers” one after another!

“The ① effect of “Ignister Prominence, the Blasting Dracoslayer” resembles an explosion or a bomb blast that hits two cards on the field! Because you can also choose your own cards as the target for its effect, it’s an effect you can easily use!”

[ATK 2850/DEF 0]
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner Pendulum Monsters
①: Once per turn: You can target 1 Pendulum Monster on the field or 1 card in the Pendulum Zone; destroy it, and if you do, shuffle 1 card on the field into the Deck. ②: Once per turn: You can Special Summon 1 “Dracoslayer” monster from your Deck in Defense Position, but it cannot be used as a Synchro Material for a Summon.

The ① effect of “Majester Paladin, the Ascending Dracoslayer” adds a Pendulum Monster from the Deck is a sublime effect that sets up for the next effect! This effect activates once you successfully Xyz Summon this card to the field, so it’s not a problem resolving this effect during the End Phase even if this card leaves the field!

[ATK 1850/DEF 2000]
2 Level 4 Pendulum Monsters
①: When this card is Xyz Summoned: You can add 1 Pendulum Monster from your Deck to your hand during the End Phase of this turn. ②: Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; Special Summon 1 face-up “Dracoslayer” Pendulum Monster from your Extra Deck, but it cannot be used as an Xyz Material for a Summon.

The ① effect of “Dinoster Powerful, the Mighty Dracoslayer” is a sturdy effect that protects your Pendulum Monsters and cards in your Pendulum Zone from being destroyed! It’s particularly good in “Dinomist” Decks, as it becomes even stronger when combined with the Pendulum Effects of your “Dinomist” cards!

It makes “Harpie’s Feather Duster” in particular seem a lot less scary!

Must first be Special Summoned (from your Extra Deck) by Tributing the above cards you control.
