I hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day holiday, and we're back reviewing Raging Battle cards this week, and it's a good one, selected by me! Strong Wind Dragon, a fun Ultra Rare, who is Level 6 with 2400 attack and 1000 defense (where have we seen that before?) and a Dragon of the Wind attribute...*shocked face*

Anyway, first we have a Kaiser Glider type effect, which is useful, where the monster isn't destroyed in Battle by a monster with the same attack, and there are plenty of 2400 attack monsters around. However, Strong Wind Dragon gains half the attack of the tributed monster if it's a Dragon, and odds are, it will be.

Now, it's probably going to be in the 500-750 attack range, as the monster you tribute probably won't have more than 1000-1500 attack, but it could be something strong like Luster Dragon or Spear Dragon (so 950 there). Anyway, 500 gives you 2900 attack, and still can't be destroyed by equal attack monsters.

750 gives you a monster with 3150 attack which is incredibly powerful, and still, not able to be destroyed by equal attack, but I can't think of any monsters who have 3150 base attack...and for my favorite ability, Strong Wind Dragon has trample :D

Nice monster, solid attack with an increase, and trample...who can take down powerful Tier one monsters...Dragons are far more powerful than people realize...

Ratings:

Traditional: 2.75/5 Really hurt some by being Wind
Advanced: 3.85/5

Strong Wing Dragon ...

There was another monster ... i'm forgetting its name right now ... that had a similar type of effect - where if it battled another monster of the same attack - it wasnt destroyed ... And at the time of first hearing it, i didnt think much of the effect. But then i saw it in action ... kinda changed my tune. 2400 ATK is like the 'industry standard' for a 1 tribute monster ... if u get MORE for 1 tribute, u are getting a huge bargain ... if u get LESS, then it better come with some extra fancy features ... but 2400 is usually the least u could hope for. What this means is that MOST 1 tribute monsters wont be able to stand up to this thing. Unless they have a monarch-like effect to clear it out of the way - suiciding against Strong Wind just wont work. ... And thats it u are NOT using him in a pure Dragon deck, wherein that 1 tribute will most likely carry him well OVER the 2400 barrier, and straight out FIGHTING him will then become out of the question. Even an average 1400 attacker, once tributed will give Strong Wind over 3000 ATK, giving u the equivalent of a Blue Eyes on your side of the field. And what's nicer? He's got a Fairy Meteor in his back pocket, meaning Defense is a joke against him.

Pretty awesome for Dragons ...

Welcome to another week of Card of the Day Pojo! We start the week off with Strong Wind Dragon, one of Jack Atlus' cards. I like this card a lot, it looks cool and has a pretty solid effect and stats. Strong Wind Dragon is a level six wind attributed dragon monster with 2400 attack and 1000 defense. While its on the field it cannot be destroyed in battle with monsters that have the same attack as this card. When its tribute summoned by tributing a dragon monster it gains half of the tributed monsters attack and it has trample. I honestly dont see any bad points to this card. Its one of the best dragon monsters currently out in my opinion. Imagine tributing Five-Headed Dragon. It'd be 100 attack points less than Five-Headed Dragon is, but it'd also have trample. That would do some seriously heavy damage.

If you are running a dragon deck, this card seriously is a must. Cards like Twin-Headed Behemoth and Masked Dragon prove to be excellent tribute food for this card as well as Tiger Dragon.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3.5/5
