Eclipse Wyvern is the midweek card, and one that obviously combos well in the Dragon Deck, not to mention with other cards we look at this week.  Let's look at basics...Light is good, 1600 attack is respectable, and Wyvern literally can pull of essentially the equivalent of an eclipse.  If sent to the Graveyard (regardless of how) you can remove a Light OR Dark (key word OR = awesomeness) Level 7 or higher Dragon-type Monster from your Deck.  Then, if Wyvern itself is banished (and it IS Light remember, possibilities people), you add the Dragon removed by this prior effect to your Hand.  Beautiful, just incredible, not a Special Summon, but I think then we'd be border line broken, at least for the Deck.  Likely whatever you removed can/will be Special Summoned anyway.

The next piece to the Chaos/Dragon puzzle is Eclipse Wyvern. It is a light monster, so it helps in summoning the cards we just reviewed this week, Lightpulsar Dragon and Darkflare Dragon, and Chaos monsters. The nice thing about Eclipse Wyvern is that its effect activates whenever it goes to the graveyard, so things like foolish, milling, discarding, tributing, and being sent as Xyz material all work.
 
The effect banish a level 7 or higher monster from your deck gives you access to Dark Armed Dragon and Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon. You can use the effect of Darkflare Dragon or special summon a Chaos monster or one of the above monsters. This will get you the monster you banished to set up your next play of ether special summoning DAD or REDMD to control and swarm the field and push for game.
 
The other nice thing about Eclipse Wyvern is that the monster that you banished can be special summoned with cards like Escape from the Dark Dimension and Return from the Different Dimension. You can even run Dimensional Alchemist is this deck to grab one of your banished monsters as this deck does a lot of banishing. Needless to say, Eclipse Wyvern is an important piece to the puzzle that cannot be left out. If Chaos Emperor Dragon-Envoy of the End comes off the ban list, you will need to take my ratings and make them all a 5.

Our look at the Dragon's Collide structure deck rolls on with a look at Eclipse Wyvern. Wyvern is a level 4 LIGHT/Dragon type with 1600 ATK and 1000 DEF. Wyvern's effect is If this card is sent to the graveyard, Banish 1 level 7 or higher, LIGHT or DARK Dragon type monster from your deck. If this card is in your graveyard and is banished, you can add the banished monster from this effect to your hand. This card is excellent for setting up a few plays ahead. There are a few Dragon monsters you can banish with this effect, but the most popular choice will be Red Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon. Wyvern is great, as its effect doesn't really where it has to come from as long as it goes to the grave, so Foolish Burial, Future Fusion and a few other ways will get you Wyvern's effect. If you're using the new Dragons, This card is a must.

Traditional: 3
Advanced: 4
Tomorrow: No Chaos Emeralds here.

"If this card is sent to the Graveyard: Banish 1 Level 7 or higher LIGHT or DARK Dragon-Type monster from your Deck. If this card in the Graveyard is banished: You can add the monster banished by this effect to your hand."

One of the best search engines a Dragon deck could ever hope for. Sadly, if the dragon you want to search out is already in your hand or graveyard, this guy won't do much, but when combined with Darkflare Dragon and Dragon Ravine, this makes for an amizing search combo that can grab you cards like Blue-eyes White Dragon, Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon, Gandora the Dragon of Destruction, or Dark Armed Dragon.

So far, the official rulings on combining EW with Darkflare Dragon are unclear, but if you can use EW's effect to search out a dragon to banish, then remove EW from the graveyard as the last part of DD's effect to add the removed dragon to your hand, then it's a rather fast combo to make use of that seems almost cruel.

If that's not the case, then I'd recommend using Dragon Ravine first, then Darkflare Dragon or a chaos summon to get the high-level dragon into your hand, or use D.D.R to special summon the removed dragon.

An amazing card that works well in any dragon deck.
