Now, the Dragon we covered Tuesday was good. Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos is great. We have a Level 7, Fire attributed Dragon, with 2800 attack (excellent) and 1800 defense (decent). This Monster has the same return to the Hand when Special Summoned effect, regardless of by its own effect.

Also, it has the same Special Summon requirement, as opposed to tributing, by sending two Fire and/or Dragon type Monsters from your Hand and/or Graveyard. Now, by discarding this card and one other Fire Monster from your Hand to the Graveyard you can destroy one card on the Field. Note you do target said card before destroying it.

You also note, that like yesterday, when this card is removed from play, you can add a Dragon, Fire type Monster from your Deck to your Hand. The trick here, like before, Fire actually makes this Dragon fairly difficult to play in Dragons. I'd play this guy in Fire Fist, and maybe even Laval, but aside from that, he might be difficult to play.

Ratings:

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 4/5
Art: 5/5

Today we are looking at: Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos

like all the other Elemental dragons he has a good search effect, and searches another card when banished. The only thing that is much different about him is that you can discard him and another fire monster to destroy 1 card on the field. That's good, but Draco is better and you won't always have extra fire monsters in hand while playing Edragons; but the option is nice.

Advanced: 4/5 (it's an Edragon)
Traditional: 3/5

If this card is in your hand or Graveyard: You can banish a total of 2 FIRE 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.

At number 3 of Pojo's Top ten from Lord of the Tachyon Dragon is Blaster Dragon Ruler of Infernos. If you remember I slated Tidal Dragon ruler of waterfalls will this be any better. Ah, the more things change the more they stay the same. First off, Blaster Dragon Ruler of Infernos has something that is very important for high level monsters, at alternate summoning method. In this case by banishing 2 FIRE Monsters or 2 Dragons or a combo of both from your hand or graveyard or again a combo of both, you can special summon this card from your hand or graveyard. A bit costly as it still requires you to give up two monsters but since it is so versatile it more than makes you for it. This also makes this card splashable in both FIRE and Dragon decks. Also if this card is banished you can add a FIRE Dragon-type to your hand, the only problem with this effect is that it is very limiting, granted there are monst ro choose from that the 9 Tidal Dragon ruler of waterfalls had.

Now we get to the problems with this card. The first is the great condition that if this card has been special summoned (by any means) it returns to your hand at the end of your opponent's turn. This is really bad, given the cost of special summoning this guy, it almost seems like a waste to have special summoned him in the first place. His other effect, it's clear what they are trying to do here, basically allowing you to get monsters so you can special summon him but you have to remind yourself this is will only destroy 1 card, whcih is really bad.

Overall Decent stats for a level 7, splashable which is good, but none of his actual effects are really worth the price.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
