Sea Dragon Lord Gishilnodon, a Dragon and a Sea
monster, fun I suppose, who is a Level 5, Water
attributed Synchro monster, who is also a Sea
Serpent, which is neat, as there aren't many of
those, who has 2300 attack and 1800 defense.
Sea Dragon Lord Gishilnodon is Synchro Summoned with
a Tuner and a Level 3 non Tuner monster. It's a bit
odd, and obviously a bit more difficult to Synchro
Summon as it requires a specific level of non Tuner,
but there are plenty of Level 3 Water monsters.
Speaking of Level 3 monsters, when a face-up or
lower level monster is sent to the Graveyard, this
cards attack becomes 3000 until the End Phase, which
can be a nice surprise I suppose, and this card
could be fun to use, but not the most competitive.
Sea Dragon Lord
Another mouthful of a name. This guy boasts 2300 ATK
and 100 DEF on a level 5 WATER Sea Serpent. You HAVE
to have a level 3 non-Tuner though. The card that
comes to mind for us with this guy is Deep Sea Diva,
a card that has garnered some fame int eh YGO world.
Basically, you will not play this guy without Diva
getting a level 3 Sea Serpent, as then it is
basically a Normal summoned 2300 Beater. His effect
is that if a level 3 or lower monster dies, his ATK
becomes 3000. As you essentially Normal Summoned
this guy, that is pretty good. His Synchro
requirements are far too specific for there to be
really any use outside of a deck packing Diva, but a
deck packing multiple level 3 or lower monsters is
where it belongs.
He doesn't really work with the older Sea Serpent
stuff, but as the new stuff is pretty good, you can
use it with that or do some crazy combos with Pot of
Avarice and Salvage for pretty much a Synchro Summon
Sea Dragon Lord Gishilnodon
Today’s card up for review is Sea Dragon Lord
Gishilnodon. What a name huh? This guy has a pretty
cool effect. The big question would be if you could
pull it off. You will have to use up two monsters to
bring him up, and then have a level or 3 monster get
sent to the yard. I have seen this go off, and it’s
hilarious when it does. If you have the room, why
not use one? If you are using a Synchro oriented
deck like Cat Synchro, why not use him? You would
see his effect goes off more easier in there
Sea Dragon Lord
eh ... it's ok.

We're going to finish
off the week with a pretty cool synchro monster. Sea
Dragon Lord Gishilnodon. Quite the mouth full eh?
Well Gishilnodon is an interesting monster to be
sure. Its a level 5 synchro monster than can be
summoned with 1 tuner and 1 level 3 non-tuner
monster. It has a solid 2300 attack 1800 defense
stats and when a level 3 or lower monster goes to
the graveyard from the field, Gishilnodons attack
goes up to 3000. For a level 5 monster thats not
bad. Its rather easy to summon as there are multiple
cards like Krebons and Road Synchron to get this
There really isn't much to this card except for it
being an easy to summon beatstick.
Sea Dragon Lord
I don't really know what to say, this card is pretty
bad. The only time I could see it being useful is
during sealed, and you pulled a Blizzard and Kalut
or Diva and Level 3 Sea Serpent. You really have no
reason to play this over Magical Android, and even
Android is pretty bad.
I like Sea Dragon
Lord. It's a five star synchro that gets stronger
when level three monsters are destroyed. Just by
looking at the card you can tell the Sea Sephants
may start abusing level three monsters. It card be
the boss monster for the theme providing that it
could help some major combos in the future.
Trad: 1(The only thing I see competitive is Chaos in
Adv: 2.5 (I can this card having its own deck.)
Sea Dragon Lord
Gishilnodon…. It’s nice to finally see another level
5 synchro monster other than Magical Android.
However, this one is kind of a disappointment. You
can literally ignore its effect of gaining 3000
attack…because chances are given the decks being
played right now, in order to even summon it, you’ll
have already used one of the few level 3 monsters in
However, if you do find yourself running more than
the usual 1-3 level 3 monsters, you might as well
just reserve a spot in your extra deck for this card
for kicks. Anything can happen in this game, and
that 700 attack boost can even win you the duel. But
for the more competitive decks, I rather use his
spot in the extra deck for something with more
Reality is that there will not be many instances in
which you find yourself even summoning a level 5
synchro, and when you do, there’s no reason why you
should choose Gishilnodon instead of Magical
Android. With most decks these days running Solemns,
that little 600 LP recovery from Android can
actually prove to be a deciding factor of a game.
Fun deck, perhaps…competitive deck, no chance.
