There isn't much to say about Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms that wasn't said yesterday.  Replace every time I said "Earth" with "Wind" and aside from stats (Wind, Dragon, Level 7, 2400 attack 2200 defense, still not great) we've about covered the differences...By discarding this card and a Wind type Monster, you can add a Dragon from your Deck to your Hand (any Dragon).  This guy is about as playable as yesterday, he has a better attack for a better punch I suppose, and these guys are great for a Special Summon for a Rank 7 XYZ Monster, but even so.

We talked about the Elemental Dragon theme yesterday and how that together the four Elemental Dragons form an extremely powerful deck. Today’s attribute Dragon is the Wind Dragon Ruler, Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms. As I pointed out yesterday, all of the Dragon Rulers have the same effects except for the one based upon their attribute. Wind’s effect is to add a Dragon-type monster from your deck to your hand. All you have to do is discard it and a wind monster. The reason that effect is so important in a Dragon Ruler deck is because it can get Light and Darkness Dragon in your hand for use with Dracossack. The idea is to special summon two level 7 Elemental Dragons to summon Dracossack, use Dracossack’s effect to summon two tokens, and then use those tokens as tribute to summon Light and Darkness Dragon.

Like the other Elemental Dragons, Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms can be splashed into almost any Wind deck, like Armed Dragon, Dragunity, and Harpie decks. The deck type that intrigues me the most is Harpie with Harpie’s Pet Dragon. Like with the other Elemental Dragons, you would also want to run their Baby Dragon, so Lighting, Dragon Ruler of Drafts makes a good partner for Tempest. Tempest also makes a good partner for Harpie Pet Dragon in making Big Eye or Dracossack. Along with cards like Return From a Different Dimension and Call of the Haunted, we could easily special summon level 7 monsters each turn. By running Effect Veilers, we can special summon Stardust Dragon as well.

In Dragunity decks, Tempest will get you any Dragunity that you need to pull off your combos. It is like having three ROTA’s in your deck that can be special summoned into 2400 attack monsters on your next turn. The Elemental Dragon Ruler monsters are just so good that it is scary.

Alright!! Today we are reviewing another Dragon Ruler monster but is it as good as the other Dragon Ruler monsters? Let’s see what this card can do.

Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms
Attribute: Wind
Types: Dragon/Effect
Level 7

If this card is in your hand or Graveyard: You can banish a total of 2 WIND and/or Dragon-Type monsters from your hand and/or Graveyard, except this card; Special Summon this card. During your opponent's End Phase, if this card was Special Summoned: Return it to the hand. You can discard this card and 1 WIND monster to the Graveyard; add 1 Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to your hand. If this card is banished: You can add 1 WIND Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to your hand. You can only use 1 "Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms" effect per turn, and only once that turn.
ATK/2400 DEF/2200

So this monster is very similar to the other Dragon Ruler monsters. It can be special summoned just as easily as the other Dragon Rulers. It can also add a Wind Dragon-type monster from your deck to your hand when it’s banished. Overall it’s a pretty decent monster. It has decent attack and defense stats but its discarding effect is kind of underwhelming. You can discard this monster and another Wind monster from your hand to add a Dragon from your deck to your hand. This effect might not seem that bad but it’s really only useful in a Dragon Ruler deck. Tidal, Redox, and Blaster seem to have better discarding effects than this card because they can be used in multiple decks. I’m not saying that Tempest is a bad monster but I think it’s just a little underwhelming compared to the other Dragon Rulers.

This monster is obviously most useful in a Dragon Ruler deck but some other decks that can use this monster are Harpies, Dragunities, and even Ninja decks.

Advanced:4/5
Traditional:4/5
Art:5/5

Wind/ Dragon/Effect/Level7/2400/2200

If this card is in your hand or Graveyard: You can banish a total of 2 WIND and/or Dragon-Type monsters from your hand and/or Graveyard, except this card; Special Summon this card. During your opponent's End Phase, if this card was Special Summoned: Return it to the hand. You can discard this card and 1 WIND monster to the Graveyard; add 1 Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to your hand. If this card is banished: You can add 1 WIND Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to your hand. You can only use 1 "Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms" effect per turn, and only once that turn.

Another Elemental Dragon, well yesterday’s Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders wasn’t too bad, so maybe the Elemental Dragon are making a turnaround… no scratch that, they are still bad. Tempest is really bad, his stats are Red-Eyes standard (which isn’t good for a level 7) and his effect isn’t any better. An overly expensive searcher which is more expensive than this other search effect just not as restrictive, but why give a card two effects which are nearly identical? It’s stupid.

Overall, the worst of the Elemental Dragons by far and sadly I can’t give 0.5 as a mark.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5

Philosophical
Psycho
I had a mix-up with my Redox and Tempest reviews. The one I had for Redox was my review my Tempest. If you go back to it, it will be changed for Redox, and the Tempest one is reproduced here. The next two paragraphs are copy/pasted from my Tempest article, so if you already read them...yeah..

 

There are certain powerful monsters I consider very splashable because they only require certain Attributes in your Graveyard. Dark has Dark Counterparts, perhaps the most famous of them being Dark Armed Dragon. Light has a variety of Lightray monsters, and also Soul of Purity and Light. Of course, there are many "Chaos" monsters that require you to Banish one Light and one Dark monster from your Grave. Fire, Rock, Water, and Wind all have at least two monsters that are summoned by Banishing one corresponding monster. Fire has Spirit of Flames and Inferno; Rock has The Rock Spirit, Gigantes, and Gigastone Omega (Omega needs two). Water has Aqua Spirit and Fenrir; Wind has Silpheed and Garuda the Wind Spirit. Fire, Rock, Water, and Wind also have the Elemental Lords, which you can plop down by having exactly five monsters of an Attribute in the Grave. Now what we got are the Dragon Rulers.

 

There are four Dragon Rulers, one for each non-Light/Dark/Divine-Beast/Creator-God Attribute out there. Each monster has three effects, and you can only use one of these effects under its name per turn:

1. Banish two Dragons and/or your own Attribute from hand and/or Grave and summon this from hand and/or Grave (usually you'll be banishing from the Grave to play this from the Grave). This is NOT something like the aforementioned "banish from your Graveyard to summon" cards because this effect can be chained to.

2. Discard from your hand this card and a shared Attribute from your hand to activate your unique ability.

3. When this card is banished, add a Dragon from your deck with the same Attribute.

 

The Dragon Rulers for Fire and Water were in our Lord of the Trachyon Galaxy Top 10 Countdown, presumably because how splashable they were into the popular Fire and Water Decks coming out (particularly Fire Fist, Fire King, Hazy, Mermail, Atlantean). Tempest is splashable too in Wind Decks (it's particularly fantastic in Harpie Decks, and I also use a copy in my new Disaster LaDD Deck). However, in a Dragon Ruler Deck (more popularly referred to as the Elemental Dragons, EDragons for short), you will be using ALL THREE COPIES OF THESE DRAGONS.

 

In the EDragon Deck, the only thing that separates the different Dragons is their unique ability, and I think Tempest's unique ability is probably the most important, to search any Dragon from your deck. I should also mention that all Special Summoned EDragons will return to your hand when your opponent ends turn. In a true EDragon Deck, this will almost never happen. You're supposed to use the baby versions to help summon out the Level 7 versions from your deck, use the first EDragon ability to summon them out of your Grave, and at the same time activating the third EDragon abilities of those that are banished to add clones to your hand. Then you Xyz Summon Rank 7 like crazy.

 

Trad: 3/5 (I'm unsure how EDragons would work as a Deck here, but one thing I like a lot is how Tempest's unique ability can search Chaos Emperor Dragon...on the first turn!)

Adv: 5/5

 

Philosophy Corner: "The dragons who stand closest to the divine, condensing the power of each Attribute inside their bodies."

 

Aesthetics: 4.9/5  The "Dragon Rulers" dwell in locations that are very strong points for the elements of Earth, Water, Fire and Wind: one in the deep mountains, another at a grand waterfall, yet another at an active volcano, and the last in a region known for its raging storms, and so on and so forth. By absorbing the forces of nature into their bodies, they continue to grow into huge dragons as those forces are condensed and stored into their bodies. "Lightning, Dragon Ruler of Drafts", having unleashed the power of Wind, reincarnates in the storms, giving birth to "Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms".
