Dark Paladin
Today, as my Shadow of Infinity week progresses, we look at what seems to be a very popular tribute monster from the set, Divine Dragon-Excelion.

Excelion does have the downside of being a Level 5 monster, requiring one tribute. Furthermore, he only has 1500 attack points which is quite low for a tribute monster. However, Excelion has a wide-variety of effects for you to choose from if he mirrors himself in the Graveyard.

•Increase the ATK of this card by 1000 points.
•If this card destroys your opponent's monster as a result of battle, it can attack once again in a row.
•When this card destroys a monster as a result of battle and sends it to the Graveyard, inflict damage to your opponent's Life Points equal to the ATK of the destroyed monster.

1000 extra attack almost makes this worth a tribute, but then for that to be the effect, that's not that great, is it? Or, you can choose the BLS type effect and attack a second time if you destroyed something.

How many monsters is something with 1500 attack going to be destroying?
Not many...Elemental Searchers, Sangan, Magician of Faith, that's about it, right?

Or, you can give it the ability to burn your opponent if he destroys something. That monsters attack is dealt to your opponent as damage.
Sadly, you probably won't be doing death to anything to really hurt your opponent unless they are fairly low on lifepoints anyway.

Ratings:

3/5 in its own deck but 1/5 elsewhere

Art: 3/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Divine Dragon - Excellion:
Meh.

An interesting idea, but not properly done in my opinion. To get your one tribute monster's worth out of this (and you dang well better tribute summon it because there's no effect off a Special Summon), you MUST choose the first effect to ensure your divine dragon isn't stamped on by a spent Breaker. Also, the third effect is mostly useless.

So, you've got to find a way to get at least one of these into the graveyard to have a standard, Smashable monster. It seems too much work to me.

Though, why they didn't have some fun and give this the type Divine-Beast?

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5

Share and enjoy,
Ryoga

Divine Dragon Excelsion

A card I was much sought after until I discovered that it does not get its effect when its special summoned AND that its level 5. Playability greatly got shot after these points were brought to my attention.

Excelsion is a recent addition to the dragon deck arsenal , sporting one of the new ‘For every’ cards where the summoned monster receives an effect depending on the number of copies of itself in your grave.

Divine dragon can receive either an attack boost, a multi attack function or a direct damage effect depending on your preference.

Overall, if you can pull it off its very worthwhile, but since you cant, I’d advise staying clear. It’s really a shame as I’d have loved to make a deck around these, shinning angel and DD Dragon.

Traditional ; 1/5

Advanced : 2/5
Art : 4/5 Redeeming

MPS : 3/5 I still like it…

Divine Dragon is an interesting card. His stats and effects get better and better for each one in your graveyard. Plus he is search able via Masked Dragon and Shining Angel. Thus simply by this he extremely playable. I look forward to giving him a try as soon as I get 3 :P

He is also a light monster. Thus in such a deck ever-bodies favorite tech card, chaos sorcerer and pot of avarice have uses. I look at this card and see potential. And honestly I think it deserves a 4/5 simply losing points b/c it is a tribute. But once 2 hit the graveyard, it won't matter :P
