Detonix Drill Dragon

 

Make a Gurren Laggan reference and you seriously need to get out more.

 

Anyway, he sucks. Anything that operates on the assumption you're losing tends to suck.

Another card that would have been cooler in the format it was actually created for. Detonix Drill Dragon was obviously the prototype to Eradicator's Tempest Bolt Dragon, but Detonix only wipes the board when you ride him. Bummer. At least paired with its partner-in-crime, Detonix Stinger Dragon, you can breakride and make a 31k vanguard column with an extra crit and Glory effect. That means your opponent better had saved their good G-Guards for a good shot at surviving this. 

If you really want to build Detonix.dek, running the Drill Dragon is less cumbersome than trying to run Tempest Bolt (or any Eradicator Grade 3) with Detonix Stinger Dragon, since most of your Eradicator units will be vanilla while you're sitting on Stinger.

Of course, setting up the breakride turn won't always happen. But hey, I'm the guy who ran around with a cheesy Heroic Saga Dragon/Dauntless deck for a few weeks, so I'm one to talk about playing silly breakride gambits. Build Detonix if you like Oldguard. Detonix's breakride is honestly one of the best breakrides out there, but missing the breakride turn results in Detonix Drill Dragon being very underwhelming. 

2.5/5
