Cyber Laser Dragon

Ehh, we got a card noobs will be all over because it's on the show...

Cyber Laser Dragon is essentially a Ritual; it's a 4-card investment. You know how I feel about 4-card combos when 3-card combos can win games straight out (Cyber-Stein + Megamorph or Limiter + Trunade). Well, 3-card investment if it's not in your hand.

For your three or four cards, you get a 2400 with built in monster destruction against stronger cards. Wow...I think we already have something better than this. It's called Smashing Ground! And we can use three of it! I think I'd much rather have two Cybers and two Smashings available to me rather than a card that functions like a Smashing with +300 ATK.

As I mentioned at the very beginning here, newbies will want this card. But the BAD thing is they need Cybers to run it, which means they'll need THOSE too. This will make it harder for us to get the Cyber Dragons from them, which is really the only thing we're after...so start hoarding Proto Cyber Dragons from the dime/quarter bin, as your best chance is gonna be to trade someone 3 of those for their real Cyber, if they're at all interested in Cyber Laser.

1/5 all formats

To close the week, we'll be looking at one of the new Cyber Dragon nomi-monsters, Cyber Laser Dragon.

Cyber Laser Dragon is a Nomi monster, as stated, which usually isn't good. CLD can only be summoned by the card Photon Generator Unit which requires you to tribute to Cyber Dragons on your side of the field.

Then, you have a 2400 attack monster who can destroy one monster per turn (should you choose) whose attack or defense is higher than Cyber Laser Dragons.

Not that bad of an effect, but you are giving up three cards in order to summon it. Photon Generator Unit plus the two tributed Cyber Dragons. The effect can be really annoying to the opponent if you keep him on the field for long.

Ratings:

4/5 Cyber Dragon deck, as it's the only place it belongs.

Art: 4.5/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Cyber Laser Dragon:
Looks cool, but I prefer the real Cyber Dragon.

The idea here is a monster that can destroy all other monsters. However, it is basically a Ritual monster (does Blue not go well with Cyber Dragon's?) since it requires two tributes and a "Ritual Spell" known as Photon Generator Unit to summon.

I'd say it's not worth the bother. Use your Cyber Dragons, however Proto they may be, to summon the fusions. They are good.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5

Share and enjoy,
Ryoga

Zomg. This card is so bad.

I'm sorry, I don't like reviewing cards the way I do, its just me though =[. I'm like an active sand trap, and I'll pull one from his book:

This card is a steaming pile of $h!t, and will never see top 8 of an SJC unless its a joke in someones side deck =[.

I just read this card...and wow, its effect is near useless, nothing much is over 2400, actually, NOTHING played today is over 2400, so its effect is already pretty bad, but then I read Photon...omg.

ROFL.

Terrible, come on Konami, GIVE ME SOMETHING PLEASE.

Don't give up hope readers, the next two weeks are great.

1/5 ALL AROUND.

Cyber laser dragon :

A card many like, but do realise its limited play.

Cyber laser dragon is a recent addition to our game which was what can only be described as an attempt to draw people away from their CC ways and to try using Cyber Dragon in its own deck.

Needless to say, they failed miserably. Both incarnations, though awesome in artwork, were lacking effect wise, and more often than not you are better off keeping your Cyber Dragons.

Not to mention the enormous cost of this cards summoner card, which requires the offering of 2 Cyber dragons to do, (although granted you could use 2 Proto Dragons).

In a Cyber Dragon deck, I would suggest running this just for some 1 hit kill combos and the like, but I don’t advise your hopes of winning with it. Cyber laser has decent attack, and strangely enough, there in lies the problem. You can only kill monsters with higher attack, which at 2400 is not going to happen any time soon.

Traditional : 1/5
Advanced : 2.5 /5

Art : 5/5 Very cool
MPS :4/5 I admire what they were trying to do.

Cyber Laser Dragon

this monster is playable simply because it can be summoned from the graveyard. Plus its summoner is a quick play magic card. Imagine hitting your opp. with 2 cyber dragons and then Bam, bringing out this bad boy for 2400 extra damage. Or you attack into a sakuretsu armor or something. Bring out this monster. Your opp. Snatch Steals, Brain Controls, Soul Exchange, etc. you get your investment back.

See, Cyber requires 3 cards to use, but by activating the generator unit in response to a card you get one, bring out cyber laser, kill a monster you now have 2 cards payed for. If your opp. smashing grounds, 3 cards have been payed for. Plus his effect, though kinda weak, it useful in case you ever come across a tribute monster.

I like him alot.

3/5

Yeah so I’ve been extremely busy this week, hence why I haven’t had any cotds for a bit. Today I will sum up all of the 5 cards for the week. And I’ll do it in 2 words….

They suck.

That’s my thoughts on all of them. For details you can contact me or I may submit full reviews if I have time.

For ratings, essentially pick a rating between 0.2 and 1.0 for both traditional and advanced for all of them. But the catch is that the total value of ratings can’t be above 3.5 combined for traditional and the same limit for the total for advanced.
