Normal Monster again?  Wattaildragon, a Level 6, Light attributed, Dragon Monster.  This Dragon has 2500 attack and 1000 defense, and where else do we go with this...works in Normal Decks, Beatdown perhaps, Watt Decks I suppose, if only because of the name. Capable of "indefinite" flight.  I guess meaning it can fly forever, but just because one is capable, doesn't mean it does said thing.  Capturing this Monster is apparently illegal, specifically, forbidden.  By the "Ancient Rules" (a Magic card capable of Special Summoning said Monster).  Said action is a Level 6 offense, also again, the Level of the Monster.  Capturing this Dragon receives a sentence of imprisonment for no less than 2500 heliocylces.  I'm not sure what the hell a heliocycle is BUT "helio" refers to the sun.  So a sun cycle, would be a day, so 2500 days.  Trap at your own risk.
 
Ratings:
 
2/5  Unlike yesterday, where the Monster was moderately splashable, despite being Normal, this isn't the LOB days...

Art:  5/5

Today we are going to look at a key card in a Hieratic deck. Even though it is a normal card, Wattaildragon is very useful in summoning those powerful rank 6 monsters like Photon Strike Bounzer, Number 25: Force Focus, Hieratic Dragon King of Atum, and Inzektor Exa-Bettle.
 
Even if you were to get Wattaildragon in your hand, you are still in good shape as you can special summon a Hieratic monster and then tribute it for Wattaildragon to get another Wattaildragon to the field with the tributed Hieratic monster to Xyz a rank 6 monster. With 2500 attack, this level 6 monster is still a good beat stick to have on the field.
 
Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5

Today we look at another Normal monster, which has to be some kind of Pojo record of two straight Normal monster reviews in a row. Wattaildragon is a Level 6, Light/Dragon-Type, with 2500 ATK and 1000 DEF, and its flavor text breaks the 4th wall of Yu-Gi-Oh! as well. Wattaildragon could be used as a heavy hitter for the Watt archtype, as it can be searched by Wattcobra and special summoned by Wattdragonfly. Also, like yesterdays's card, since it's Light and Normal, it goes with all that good stuff as well. But it's a Dragon-type too, that means it can be used in a Hieratic deck as well as Dragons. 2500 ATK can get over a lot, and makes it a bit hard to beat in battle. Sometimes all you need is a big monster to solve a few problems. Wattaildragon has a bit more going for it than yesterday's card. 

Traditional: 2.5
Advanced: 3.5

Angelic Nightmare

Today we are reviewing Wattaildragon.

Light/ Dragon/ Lv 6/ 2500 ATK/ 1000 DEF

This card is a bit odd, but it’s useful in two decks. The first deck I’m going to go over will be Watts. This archetype is very underrated, and somewhat of a gimmick in today’s meta. It is very slow, and combo oriented. What the deck has going for it is that it is full of weenie monsters that can attack directly, cause locks, have tuners, and have searching cards. Wattcobra can easily fetch this card from the deck to the hand and Wattdragonfly has the ability to Special Summon a 2500 ATK beat stick onto the field. Also, Wattkey allows any “WATT” monster to attack directly. All of this is possible because of “Watt” in Wattaildragon’s name.

Now, onto Heiratics. This card is easily special summon-able because it is a level 6 NORMAL monster. Granted it’s ATK will be decreased to 0, it provides for easy XYZ summon material. In Heriatic Decks, you should only run 1 Wattaildragon and 1 Luster Dragon #2 because they are both level 6 normal dragon types, but that isn’t the reason why. The reason why you should run one of each is due to the fact that a lot of players have “Chain Disappearance” and can remove all copies of that monster. So instead of removing both copies, you have another monster to rely on just in case that happens.

Pros: Versatile

Cons: (insert personal cons here)

Advanced: 3/5 in Watts and Heiratics.
Traditional: 1/5. These two archetypes cannot survive here.

Hello. My computer is been having quite severe problems lately. Therefore, things have been really glitchy, so I may be missing out on some important notes about some cards, but it should be fine. The problems should be fixed within a week. If you missed them, I have given my analysis for Noble Knight yesterday, as well as the last three Hieratics from last week. 

This is the fourth Normal Monster we're doing this year, not to mention we did Alexandrite Dragon and Sabersaurus very late 2011. What is UP with the world?

Hieratics and Rabbits, what up.

As I've mentioned before several times over the last two weeks, Wattaildragon is the most popular Dragon to summon with the Hieratics' swarming powers. This is due to it being Level 6, meaning an easy Xyz Summon into Atum, which gives you Red-Eyes Darkness Dragon, which revives Wattaildragon to give you entire bucketfuls of combinations. Watttail is the Level 6 Normal Dragon with the highest ATK, not to mention being Light, but this mostly doesn't matter as it is employed for pretty much that one, important purpose. Luster Dragon #2, the Level 6 Dragon with the second-highest ATK, is also sometimes used for backup.

Otherwise, I do concede that this card IS a Watt monster, so I GUESS it does get all the support from that group... This deviates heavily from the Watt strategy to use Solidarity for very scary direct attacks, however. Perhaps the most potent strategy is using Dragonfly to summon the strongest Watt monster right out on the field, then using Wattkey so that it can attack directly...once.

Traditional: 2.5/5 (if only for its role in Hieratics)

Advanced: 3.9/5

Aesthetics: 5/5 For those of you who do not get the reference, Ancient Rules is a Spell from all the way back in the Strike of Neos set; it lets you Special Summon a Normal Monster out of your hand. It has a picture of a Dragon on it, previously thought to be Blue-Eyes, but now it's clear it's this guy. I can just picture this monster getting Summoned, spiraling around as it bursts out of a scroll of paper, similar to the movie version of Harry Potter Apparating or perhaps Shenron from Dragon Ball. Just handle with care, lest you be imprisoned for 2500 heliocycles.

Philosophy Corner: So if Yugi is supposed to be the reincarnation of the Pharaoh, how the hell are they able to talk to each other?

Wattaildragon
 
Hey Duelists, Coming to you with today's COTD is Team Sentinel's BlackMarketYuGiOh and Shad0wslayr. Today we will be discussing Wattaildragon. Normal, Dragon, Light, Level 6, 2500/1000.
 
Whaca be said about this card? Hieretics abuse the crap outta this card due to their abilities and the effect of King Atum. The Watt Archetype can abuse this Card with the ability of "watt key". Making him a double attacking BeastStick. nuff' said. He is the highest attacking normal dragon out to date. So kudos
 
Advanced: 3/5 Only seen in Hieretics
Traditional: 1/5
Artwork: 2.5/5 Shoulda been a foil, if only it was foily..
