This week we're reviewing cards from the Kaiba
Duelist Pack, and one of these is knew as far as I
know...anyway, just enjoy the week! Anyway, Blue
Eyes Ultimate Dragon is a Level 12 Fusion Monster,
of the Light Attribute with 4500 attack and 3800
defense, made of three Blue Eyes White Dragons.
Now, let's open with a piece about Fusion
monsters...Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon is obviously a
choice for Dragon Decks, and 4500 attack will stop
next to everything. The question is, why play a
Do you have room in your Extra Deck among Synchros
you're all ready playing?
There are obviously some easier ways to play a
Fusion monster, in the likes of Fusion Gate, Future
Fusion, and Dragon's Mirror in this case.
It's difficult enough to play a Fusion Monster,
despite how much you may want to. IF you're playing
competitve Dragons, you might not even be using Blue
Eyes White Dragon at all.
Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon ...
"That Dragon's Attack Points are off the
As something of a Kaiba Cards week, we kick it
off with a monster that holds a relatively special
place in my heart ... The first time I ever started
watching Yu-Gi-oH was during the formation of the
Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon and that one duel -
between Kaiba & Yu-Gi - got me completely hooked.
Anywho ... onto the Dragon. Is it good? - Well
its as good as any No Frill monster with a super
huge attack, with no other accessories, and is next
to impossible to summon, could possibly be. Ok,
there are some shortcuts to getting out this huge
beast, or the 3 Blue Eyes White Dragons necessary to
summon it (anyone remember Cyber-Stein? ... he was
great, wasn't he? ...) ... But why would u want to?
4500 ATK points could flatten just about anything
... but so could ANY light monster with an Honest in
hand. And that's far easier to come by. To somehow
get the 3 dragons on the field separate but at the
same time, u could wipe out an opponent's life
points faster than with this.
Blue Eyes Ultimate isn't a BAD card by any means
... Just a bit out-dated. In this day and age, the
work that it will take to get this thing out just
isn't worth the reward, nor is allocating the room
to your extra deck. If u are building a Kaiba themed
deck, then by all means - give him a shot. If u do
get him out, u will love it for all of the 1 turn
that he's around, before BEUD falls victim to a
Smashing Ground ... and u are left wishing u'd
worked to out a Stardust Dragon instead.

Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon:
Ah... one of the original OTK cards. If not THE
original OTK card, along with Cyber-Stein. Go 2nd,
play removal, drop Stein, pay five grand worth of
life-points, and put this bad boy on the field,
equip him with Megamorph, proceed to attack with
over 8000 atk points! Of course, later on he was
replaced by Cyber Twin and Cyber End Dragon, and
then eventually thrown into trade binders when
Cyber-Stein hit the ban-list, never to return again
(let's hope). This card was Kaiba's ultimate win
condition on the show, and was actually highly
sought-after when first released. Ha, imagine that,
people scrambling to get their hands on a non-effect
Fusion monster... oh, how the game has changed.
Traditional: 2.0 (Stein is still running around
this format, so he is usable here, but there are
better picks now.)
Advanced: 1.5 (non-effect Fusion monsters don't fair
well in my scoring department, regardless of atk
The new Card of Consonance engine actually makes
Blue Eyes White Dragon a valid tier 2 option. You
can use BEWD with White Stone of Legend and actually
be able to dump the card repeatedly for advantage. I
had a nifty Quickdraw Dragon deck that ended up
being scrapped due to consistency issues.
Having said that, Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon is
pretty terrible. Unless I am missing some relatively
new interactions, the most efficient way of getting
this monster out would be Future Fusion or Dragon's
For Future Fusion, Five-Headed Dragon is a far
better dump. It lets you send White Stone, Totem
Dragon, and Red Eyes Wyvern to the graveyard for
immense card advantage. Sending three BEWD would be
wasteful in comparison.
Dragon's Mirror requires a lot of setup to use
for no card advantage. And in this current
environment, with nonstop 1 for 1 removal, a vanilla
4500 isn't really going to cut it.
