Continuing from last week for a couple days, we're going to look at a couple cards from the Blue Eyes Structure Deck.  Castle of Dragon Souls is a Continuous Trap that is very good.  Hell, it's game breaking good, and has one tremendous thing going for it.  Some of this support in the Structure Deck specifically caters to Blue Eyes White Dragon being worded with phrases like "Normal Monsters."  This card doesn't have that restriction.  First things first, you can only control one of these at a time.  No big deal.  Once a turn you can Banish a Dragon from your Graveyard, to select a Monster you control.  Said Monster than gains 700 attack until the End Phase.  Even after this card leaves the Field or said Monster becomes unaffected by card effects.  When this face-up card is destroyed, you can Special Summon a Dragon you have that's removed from play.  Obviously Blue Eyes would be a great choice, if it were removed, but as stated, its versatile, not being limited by "Normal Monster."

Castle of Dragon Souls
Continuous Trap
Once per turn: You can banish 1 Dragon-Type monster from your Graveyard, then target 1 monster you control; it gains 700 ATK, until the End Phase (even after this card leaves the field or the monster becomes unaffected by card effects). When this face-up card on the field is sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 of your banished Dragon-Type monsters; Special Summon that target. You can only control 1 "Castle of Dragon Souls".

Starting off this week we are looking at Castle of Dragon Souls another new card from the Saga of Blue-Eyes White Dragon structure deck. It’s a continuous trap with two effects.

The first effect requires you to banish a Dragon in order to give 1 monster you control 700 ATK until the End Phase. Even though that monster keeps the ATK boost even if this card goes or the monster suddenly becomes unaffected by card effects, banishing a monster is quite a high cost for a one turn boost.

Of course that is where the second effect comes in, if this face-up card goes to the graveyard, you can special summon 1 of your banished dragons. Being able to special summon a banished monster is very good and the fact that this card just needs to go from the field to the graveyard without worrying how it got there is a plus.

Overall the first effect a bit costly for the small boost, but the second effect is quite useful especially if your deck banishes a lot of Dragons.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3.5/5
