Scrap Twin Dragon, a Level 9, Earth attributed,
Dragon type Synchro Monster, with 3000 attack and
2200 defense. I think the attack and defense should
both be a little higher since they threw the extra
star on their, but STD is Synchro Summoned with a
Scrap Tuner and one or more non-Tuner monsters.
Let's discuss Level 9 Synchro monster...obvious the
Tuner is very important...Level 4 would still leave
at least a Level 5 monster you need to Synchro, so
you're probably looking at a 3 monster Synchro
So does Scrap Twin Dragon pay off for your (very
likely) 3 card investment? Well, by destroying one
card of yours, you can return two cards on your
opponent's Field to their Hand. Obviously if you
choose a Synchro Monster(s) it (they) return to the
Even though the cards aren't destroyed, you can
essentially treat this as a 2-for-1, or even more,
potentially. Since you are destroying one card you
control, you can make that a Scrap monster, as when
Scrap Twin Dragon is destroyed, you can Special
Summon a non-Synchro Scrap mosnter from your
Scrap Twin Dragon …
It’s initials say STD … But this card may be a
LITTLE bit more fun than all that. It does what ALL
the Scrap monsters do. Destroy and destroy or
destroy and bounce. It’s hella strong, which is
nice, and it will most likely clear the field of
most any opposition, be it spell, trap, or monster,
provided u have a good target to also destroy of
yours … ideally another Scrap monster that will
yield u a benefit once u do. So once it comes out
your opponent better brace themselves because u
should be on the verge of winning.
It’s 2nd effect is the lesser of the 2, but still
ok. If u CAN’T manage to win with him, and ur
opponent finds a way to kill it, u can resurrect any
other Scrap monster, provided its not a Synchro.
That’s pretty decent depending on what u’ve got
laying in the graveyard, even though most of best
Scraps are Synchros anyway … Nevertheless, once ur
STD comes into play, it will probably never even
come to that.
Today's card is Scrap
Twin Dragon, referred to in this review as STD.
Okay, maybe I won't use its abbreviation.
Scrap Twin Dragon is more powerful than the normal
Scrap Dragon. Oh... crap. Blow up one of your Scraps
and you can spin two of the opponent's cards - no
Stardusts, Starlights or Body Shields to worry
about, here. As if that wasn't good enough, taking
down Scrap Twin Dragon only means you have to face
down a new Scrap monster in its place. That's just
awful because, one way or another, you're about to
get blasted by a new Scrap Dragon.
Scraps are good, now. And if you haven't figured it
out, yet, use Scrap Mind Reader to blow up a Scrap
and summon this. The old Scrap retrieves your
Chimera, which you summon, bring out a level 4, tune
for Scrap Dragon, blow stuff up, then tune with Mind
Reader to make Scrap Twin Dragon and blow even more
stuff up. There you go. Knowledge is power.
Art: Double shoop da whoop.
Fun Fact: Golden Sun is like Final Fantasy if Final
Fantasy was the best RPG ever made.

Hey Pojo, Pheano here with another Card Of The
Day For you.
Today we will be taking a look at one of the new
cards from Starstrike Blast, Scrap Twin Dragon.
Scrap Twin Dragon is a Level nine Earth Dragon
Synchro Monster with three thousand Attack and
twenty-two hundred Defense that requires one Scrap
Tuner and one or more non Tuner Monsters to Synchro
Summon. Once per turn you can destroy one of your
own cards to return two of your opponents cards to
their hand. Also when this is destroyed and sent to
the Graveyard you can Special Summon one non-Synchro
Scrap Monster from your Graveyard.
Scrap Twin Dragon is a pretty good card but
unfortunately it can only be used in a Scrap deck.
The main way you will see people Synchro Summon this
will be by playing Scrap Golem and then using his
effect to Special Summon Scrap Beast from the
Graveyard and then Synchro Summoning Scrap Twin
Dragon with them (5+4=9). And then when he is
destroyed you can get back the Scrap Golem so you
can play Scrap Twin Dragon or Scrap Dragon again.
The one thing that makes this a 3/5 over a 4/5 in my
mind is that it requires a Scrap Tuner, if it was
any Tuner making this card splash-able like Scrap
Dragon then I would have made this a 4/5.
In the Traditional Format this card won’t see much
play. Scraps are far to slow in that format to be a
relevant deck so being able to Synchro Summon this
will be impossibly hard. If you do play against a
deck that lets you reach a late game so you can
Synchro Summon this, your opponent will have a very
easy time stopping this with a card like Black
Luster Soldier – Envoy Of The Beginning.
Great support for the Scrap arch-type.
Hit me up on Pojo or Youtube (pheanoblack) if you
have any comments or questions, I’m always open to
Finally, a level nine scrap
synchro. This opens up mounds of possibilities for
scrap decks. Well, Scrap twin is a 3000/2200
which is very powerful for how usable this card is.
It is also a earth and a dragon.
With a level nine scrap synchro
you can do all sorts of things. Such as, cyber
dragon an be run in the deck without fear of chimera
tech, because they aren’t all machines, and with
cyber dragon, your scrap goblins and scrap beast
become more versatile of what they can go into,
instead of beast always going into dragon and goblin
going into archfiend, except in the case of goblin
and golem. So this card is easily able to be
brought out with cyber dragon and beast, or beast
Now, on with it’s effect. This
effect is quite powerful, being able to clear two of
your opponent’s cards at the cost of destroying one
of your own, which will probably be a scrap tuner or
a dark coffin. The effect may not destroy your
opponent’s cards but it gets them out of your hair
so you can swing in with this very powerful card.
Also, in the event that your opponent destroys this
card one way or another, you can revive one of your
non-synchro scraps from the grave. Possibly being a
goblin or a golem, thus giving you the chance to
bring out another one of the scrap synchroes.
So, this single card gives
scraps a new set of combos to spit out at you.
Over all, I would say that scrap twin dragon is
