Speaking of "Impossible to Summon Fusion Monsters..." Let me start out that Future Fusion or Dragon's Mirror are about the only way you're ever going to get this card out...ever. Anyway, we have a Level 12, Light attributed, Dragon Fusion Monster (again) with 5000 attack and defense.

Let's start with the good, 5000 attack (and defense) are virtually unrivaled. Unfortunately, this monster is vulnerable to all your typical Monster destruction, Traps, and everything else you want to use to destroy a Monster like this, which is what you need as what are you playing that can run over 5000 attack?

As for not so good...this is a Fusion Summon of Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon (a Fusion) and Black Luster Soldier (a Ritual) so you're likely using a Fusion substitue of sorts in place of Black Luster Soldier.
Sadly, the 500 attack powerup is not really an upside to warrant playing this card. I mean, if you're playing cards for pretty pictures, this is certainly a winner.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5 (sorta)
Art: In response to my friend who e-mailed me about card art, this is certainly top 3 monsters in the game for Art...5/5

Dragon Master Knight

This is the Big Daddy of Yu-Gi-Oh! cards, symbolic of what the best players in the game can do when they are not bickering over Exodia wins or trying to steal Egyptian God Cards or whining over who gets to beat Pegasus.

This behemoth has the largest NATURAL ATK and DEF of any card in the entire game besides the Five Headed Dragon which it is tied with, with a whoppin 5000 for each stat. Naturally, this guy will be a BEAST if you can get hom to the Field. He is a LIGHT Dragon Fusion with 12 stars. The Fusion Material monsters are Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon and Black Luster Soldier (the ritual one).

It even has an effect too, it gains 500 ATK for each Dragon type monster that you control other than the Knight. This effect is kinda useless, but is a nice add-on to the body. It can also only be Fusion Summoned, so that means that alternatives are out, just like E-Heroes.

You can however, use Fusion Substitutes like King of the Swamp. The problem is that then you either have to make a Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon (very hard to do and almost pointless) or be running an almost useless 3000 ATK Ritual Monster. Actually, the card CAN have a deck built around it. I have seen it work.

Basically, the deck runs Djinns and beats face with the Soldier, but useless Soldiers are Fused with a King of the Swamp in order to bring out the Master Knight for the final blow. I know that there are far better cards to use in this situation, but it was pretty darn fun watching somebody summon ip so many huge attackers.

Basically the card does not suck, but it eats up far too many resources to bring out and then doesn't even do very much except look big and menacing right before it disappears down that Bottomless Trap Hole. Five Headed Dragon is a far better behemoth if you really want to play one due to the existence of Dragon's Mirror. I love the card though, so it still gets a perfect score.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-5/5

Dragon Master Knight:

Cool looking card, crappy effect, should never really see play. Maybe frame it? But seriously, if you get this thing onto the field the proper way, you deserve a medal. Then start working on your Gate-Guardian deck.

Traditional: 1.5
Advanced: 1.5

Wednesday- Dragon Master Knight

To be honest, when I first started Yu-Gi-Oh! I thought this was the coolest monster in the history of the game (or Dark Paladin).

Unfortunately, it has not aged well. The components of this card are complete garbage. If you must insist on trying to get it out, I would suggest using Manju for Black Luster Soldier and using The Light Hex Sealed Fusion instead of BEUD.

Now watch it get Ryko'ed or Smashing Grounded.

T: 1/5
A: 1/5
