Cyber Barrier Dragon
Hey, not EVERY card with "Cyber" and "Dragon" in its
name can be good.
Cyber Barrier Dragon is ESSENTIALLY a ritual-type
card that doesn't get the benefit of any of the
Ritual searchers. You play a Spell that forces a
Tribute to bring out another card (although you can
pull it from the deck.) It has a beefy 2800 DEF, but
as we know from last format, there are PLENTY of
ways to kill a monster without attacking it -- we
had to deal with Spirit Reapers, didn't we?
If you leave it in ATK, your opponent's first attack
is negated. You don't get to choose which attack to
negate, it's just their first. This could leave you
in a bad situation, as if your opponent has a weak
monster that couldn't take out Cyber Barrier Dragon
in ATK mode, they could just attack with that, then
with their real attacker.
...so in short, you either get a 2,800 defender that
will never get attacked, or an 800 ATK with a free
version of a card you wouldn't run anyway (Negate
Attack) once per turn. As I suggested with cards of
similar names in the past, see if you can't trade
some n00b who got a Cyber Dragon tin for his real
Cyber...but then again, since you need Cyber to run
this, they probably won't do that either. So just
see if you can trade them this for Wednesday's card
of the day instead!
Cyber Barrier Dragon:
I always wondered why anyone thought that Cyber
Dragon needed anymore support?
Barrier Dragon has a massive Defense that nothing
will realistically get through, so shoving this in
DEF acts as an effective wall. Well, until your
opponent uses Exiled, Smash, TT, etc.
It's effect is OK, but nothing amazing. If this is
in ATK (whereupon it will be dying by battle), your
opponent loses their first attack. It just makes
your opponent play around the problem, or just wait,
instead of doing anything particularly useful.
Now, it is summoned by a Trap, so you could have a
bit of fun with a battle phase, but nothing a Winged
Kuriboh couldn't do better.
Share and enjoy,
Cyber Barrier Dragon
Basic Summary: Today we look at one of Cyber Dragon
variant upgrades. Now to bring it out you need
another cards called Attack Relector Unit which is a
trap soo to make it simple its another nomi. Now
"if" you get this thing out it can negate one attack
once per turn which isn't worth all the trouble when
you could just use Magic Cylinders. Now unless
you're a character deck this card is just good to
trade bait to kids that watch the show ( YGO GX )
sorry for the short review but some cards in sets
Conclusion: Like I mentioned trade bait or fun anime
Traditional Format > 1/5: Just Noo !!!
Advance Format > 1/5: Fun machine deck only
Artwork > 3/5: Its cool looking
Cyber Barrier Dragon
Sorry for the short review coming up, as it should
be obvious that this card isnt good. Btw, sorry if
my writing looks sloppy, and its spaced out. Its not
my fault seriously.
This is today's card of the Day, Cyber Barrier
Dragon. Not really good imo, unless your making a
full blown Cyber Dragon type deck with stuff that
has Cyber Dragon in it. Use 3 copies of Cyber Dragon
and make a competetive deck people. Dont use this
card, it will give you brain damage and you will
Look on metagame.com, nobody uses these, cause they
Cyber Barrier Dragon is a cool monster with a decent
effect. He can negate the first attack of one of
your opponent’s monsters during the Battle Step.
However, this effect doesn’t work when you Special
Summon Cyber Barrier during the Battle Step by the
effect of Attack Reflector Unit (the card used to
Special Summon him). A replay would occur and you
would not be able to stop the first attack. If your
opponent attacks again after that replay situation
or with a different monster in that Battle Phase
then you will be able to activate Cyber Barrier’s
effect. Confusing? Yes.
He can be Special Summoned via Attack Reflector Unit
from the Hand or Deck if you Tribute one Cyber
Dragon as a cost. This could lead to some tricky
plays since Attack Reflector Unit is a Trap. Is your
opponent dropping Zaborg on your Cyber Dragon? Chain
Reflector Unit and Special Summon a Cyber Barrier
Dragon. Is your Cyber Dragon about to get hit by
Sakuretsu Armor? Chain Reflector Unit and get out
your Cyber Barrier Dragon.
Last Word: The card isn’t bad, but it might be a bit
slow due to its summoning requirement (you can’t
even Normal Summon or Set). It’s a Nomi monster…
