I think I've mentioned before, cards with THUNDER in their name should be THUNDER type Monsters, but I digress. Number 91: Thunder Spark Dragon, is a Rank 4 XYZ Monster, XYZ Summoned with with 3 Level 4 Monsters. I'm almost immediately turned off by that, especially considering it only has 2400 attack and 2000 defense. Being a Dragon is good, as they are well supported, so what does he do? By discarding all three XYZ Material, you can destroy all face-up Monsters your opponent controls. That should really be all Monsters, not just face-up, as that is only half your problem. Ignoring back row, and any face-down your opponent controls. By discarding five XYZ Material, destroy all cards your opponent controls. Obviously that's excellent, but we're in a fast, aggressive, countering Format. He's not the best at what he does, and the cost is pretty ridiculous. There need to be more ways (there aren't many) to recycle and/or transfer XYZ Material to other Monsters.

Ratings:

Traditional: 2/5 Better ways to do these things
Advanced: 3/5
Art: 5/5

Today's card is a favorite of mine from Return of the Duelist, Number 91: Thunder Spark Dragon. A Rank 4 LIGHT/Dragon Xyz monster. With the decent stats of 2400 ATK and 2000 DEF, and needs 3 level 4 monsters.

Once per turn you can activate one of these effects:

Detach 3 Xyz materials from this card; Destroy all other face up monsters on the field.

Detach 5 Xyz materials from this card; Destroy all cards your opponent controls.

I really like this card because you can really build a good LIGHT/Thunder deck around this card. The best way to do so are the new Hunder family (PaHunder, MaHunder and SisHunder) along with Thunder King Rai-Oh along with Spirit Converter and Overlay Regen. Can get you Thunder Spark Dragon out and loaded with 5 Xyz material to wipe out your opponent's side of the field. Gadgets can use that one Ultimate Offering as well. Yeah you will most likely go through your whole hand but it could pay off just by wiping out your opponent's field, leaving you with the only card on the field. Even removing just 3 Xyz materials can get you an open shot and might win the duel. Yeah, Veilers and other cards like Bottomless and Torrential can put the kabosh on Thunder Spark Dragon, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Yeah, I like this card.

Number 91: Thunder Spark Dragon
Rk 4/LIGHT/Dragon/2400A/2000D
"3 Level 4 monsters
Once per turn, you can activate 1 of these effects.
● Detach 3 Xyz Materials from this card; destroy all other face-up monsters on the field.
● Detach 5 Xyz Materials from this card; destroy all cards your opponent controls."

Today we have yet another Number card. #91 needs 3 Lv. 4 Monsters to get out, but since it can be any LV. 4 monsters, that makes him playable. His stats for a Rk. 4 are pretty good, but it's his effects that are the real killer. While it's a once only effect, he can either net you a Raigeki effect or a Raigeki PLUS a Harpie's Feather Duster effect along with it! Getting the second effect takes major effort, but is possible with the right build. I wouldn't be surprised to see this card appear in tournament-level decks as a 'just in case' board clearer as it can be that good... Under the right circumstances, of course. Needing three Lv. 4 Materials hurts his usability somewhat, but not enough to avoid using him at all.
