Luster Pendulum the Dracoslayer
 
In an era with Pendulums on the rise, this card will be very useful.  Destroying a Pendulum to fill up your Extra Deck and then adding 1 to your hand.  This is particularly useful for abusing once per turn effects: Summon another Pendulum, activate it's effects, use Luster to destroy it, add another copy of it to your hand, and activate it.  It's a low cost easy to use card that can increase the consistency of the deck and set up combos.
 
3.5/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Luster Pendulum, the Dracoslayer has decent stats, attribute, and type as a monster, but it is better in the Pendulum Zone. A lesser version of Archfiend Eccentrick, you destroy this card and a card of your own, then replace it with a copy of itself. This can be a combo starter, activating effects of monsters like Shaddoll and Yang Zings that activate upon destruction. It ends up as a -1 unless using it for its combo ability, which would be the only reason to use this monster. Players would rather play Archfiend Eccentrick because it destroys your opponents resources instead of your own in an effort to combo. Players who benefit from destruction effects don't usually need to destroy their own cards, they force their opponent to.
 
A fun card that can be useful if you want to get rid of a card on your field because it's preventing you from progressing (Skill Drain) or a monster is affected by something like Fiendish Chain.

Wow do we have some great stats for a monster. Luster Pendulum, the Dracoslayer is a Level 4 Light Dragon-type tuner Pendulum Monster with 1850 Atk and 0 Def. All of that is usually great, but it's effect makes it extremely limited. At least you can Pendulum Summon whatever you want between 5 and the other scale. It has 1850 Atk which lets it beat out other 1800 monsters. It is also a good target for Honest after it is Pendulum Summoned.

Why is this limited. Its monster effect says you can only use this as material for Dracoslayer monsters. There is only one. It's ok, but even if it was great, that card would score well while this card scores low because of how restricted it is. Its Pendulum Spell effect is more useful. You can destroy your other Pendulum scale to search another one to your hand with the same name. This could work with Igknights, but I don't think they need this.

Score: 2/5 Maybe later, this will do better.

Art: 5/5 Light Dragon Hero with Shield and Sword! Nice!
