ExMinion OfDarkness
Cyber Dragon

He broke the game, plain and simple.

Without Cyber Dragon, we wouldn't have the aggressive format we have today. He's broken as hell and every single Top 8 Shonen Jump Championshp deck from the last event ran the maximum of 3 allowed.

There's so much to like about this;
*2100 ATK, more than any standard 4-star monster without a negative effect
*Free Special Summon, letting you not only have an attacking force, but still giving you your Normal Summon to possibly set something, giving you the best of both offense and defense
*Quick Tribute fodder if you have no monsters on the field, but need to get a Monarch into play

High ATK monster with no downside that still gives you another Summon that turn. Essentially this card went up to Marauding Captain and kicked him the groin, as he makes that little Warrior obsolete. It's enough to make you go Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! (Sorry, excited about the Wii's recent release.)

5/5 all formats.
 

Ryoga
Cyber Dragon
It resembles, but is legally distinct from Onix.

GBA games I waisted my summer on aside, Cyber Dragon continues to kick much booty. Cyber Dragon could be taken as the definition of a momentum shift. You go from having no monsters (and your opponent having
some) to having one good one (and your opponent probably having fewer). He combos brilliantly with Hand of Nephthys and similar cards. Basically, his tin shall be on shelves for a negative amount of time, as no one shall allow one to get put down.

Traditional: 5/5
Advanced: 5/5

Share and enjoy,
Ryoga
 

Tebezu
Cyber Dragon

Umm?

Umm?

Do you need me to tell you this card is good?

Decent stats, killer effect, even better attribute, and a damn good type.

This is not even mentioning the fact he has his own sub-theme and three fusions.

One of the best cards made in sometime. The ability to special summon a monster grants a player so many options and ways to deal with the field it makes me happy all over. Either he will be making your opponents life hard by hitting their monster and allowing reaper/don to steal a card, hitting them with a buddy knocking them below stein range, or being a fast sacrifice for one of the monarchs (whose effect nullifies the tribute).

Machine decks also grant this monster a ridiculous number of ways to abuse him. Summon Cyber Dragon, Exiled Force, last will, Cyber Stein :P

Overload fusion bait

Limiter for 4200

etc.

5/5

- But you already knew that.

(Does not need to be banned or restricted, the kind of card needed for a player to comeback from a second turn dice roll.)

I will keep it short & sweet since there isn't much to really talk about here, Alright of all the GX cards being released the best of the few were released in CRV which are Cyber Dragon, Cyber Twin, and obvious Cyber End Dragon. Now most cards being released nowadays in my opinion fall into three categories " Hero " or " Cyber " and random filler from GX. Now its no surprise Cyber Dragon is seen in most competitive decks its really good to return from overwhelming odds or excellent tribute fodder for Monarchs if there isn't a better option already available. With " Chaos " being banned right now Cyber Dragon is just remains a free beatstick and tribute fodder like I mentioned earlier plus a staple in Machine decks obvious . Now is it fair to really include this as a real tribute monster in most situations its just another free summon then it if it gets Sak,Armored for example you can then summon again or set which is very interesting and what makes Cyber Dragon very competitive.

Traditional Format > 4.5/5: Now being Light gives it a huge advantage in Traditional =/

Advance Format > 5/5: I hate to say it but if you want to win any major events Cyber Dragon should be in your deck

Artwork > 3/5: Like I said the last time I review Cyber Dragon the artwork is not very dragon like just a metal snake :P
 

Yugiman
Cyber Dragon

Sorry for lack of reviews in past few weeks, Ive been very busy with
school/work and stuff. But Im gonna do this weeks. Sorry for any short
reviews I do, as some we all know are good and some we know are crap.

Today we look at Cyber Dragon. Originally from CRV set, it came back out as
a Tin a month or so ago. Most decks will run this, check metagame.com and
you'll see almost all of them have these in them. This card is just too good
not to run.

If you have some, run them unless your bulding a non-cc deck, I unno.

Cyber Dragon is a card that seems great at first glance: as long as you have no monsters in play and your opponent has at least one, you can Special Summon this card.  Yu-Gi-Oh has long been a game where your opponent will often clear your field of monsters: we have mass removal cards that are staples and have been since they came out (Mirror Force and Torrential Tribute) and many “one for one” forms of monster removal that as a whole don’t leave us, this requirement is most apt to be something you meet.

 

Now, I said that it seems great at first glance: how could it be better?  Well, sadly I suspect some might dwell on the fact you’re “burning your hand” if you Special Summon this and then another Monster, but no I am not being that silly.  I simply mean that it goes from being a great card to broken when you consider what it does.  Precious few decks aren’t enhanced by it, which is a clear danger sign for a card.  It undermines a lot of value in this game as well: 2100 ATK is essentially the new “beatstick” threshold.  Remember Berserk Gorilla?  He fell out of favor in part because he was an Earth-Attribute monster and did not feed Chaos, but that is only part: the other is Cyber Dragon would be so apt to a) run over Berserk Gorilla, b) force Berserk Gorilla to suicide into Cyber Dragon for 100 LP loss and one card loss, or c) force a player to shift Berserk Gorilla into DEF mode so it doesn’t do “b”.  1900 ATK became less than useful because of the monkey (unless they had a good effect to go with them); now Berserk Gorilla is less useful (as would many other 2000 ATK Level 4s if they existed).  Its “stat” inflation and its getting annoying.  When this game began in the U.S. 1800 was the pinnacle of vanilla beatsticks, and 2500 of single-Tribute monsters.  For all intents and purposes, Cyber Dragon is just a Level 4 2100 with unusual drawbacks but a nifty bonus effect.  This also knocks some Tribute Monsters down a peg.  Vampire Lord at forced Berserk Gorilla to suicide into it, but with Cyber Dragon they don’t lose field presence.  Simply put if things keep growing this way, it doesn’t seem likely to stop.  Already, we are due for a 2000 ATK Level 4 Vanilla Monster if spoilers I’ve seen are accurate.

DeathJester
Cyber Dragon

To start off this week’s ‘Cyber Monsters’ theme we have to review Cyber Dragon. No card has caused so much controversy since Yata, Black Luster Soldier, and Chaos Emperor Dragon. Cyber Dragon is literally in 95% of decks. Even in decks it shouldn’t be in, but it still works.

Players thought it shouldn’t go in Recruiter decks and it did. People thought it shouldn’t be placed in Controls decks and it did. Cyber Dragon is an excellent card, but it doesn’t belong in every deck. Decks can win without Main-Decking Cyber Dragon.

Last Word: Cyber Dragon has changed the game since its release. Players have called for it to be restricted or limited. I say that it’s here to stay (just like Stein). Play Cyber Dragon if you want to, but you don’t HAVE to play it you know?
