At first glance, this appears to be nothing more than side-deck fodder for field card heavy metas. But if you take a closer look at the fusion monsters available that only need “a dragon-type monster,” the possibilities begin to form in one’s mind. Amulet Dragon, Beast-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, Buster Blader the Dragon Destoyer Swordsman, FGD, Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight, Panzer Dragon, and yesterday’s card, Sky Galloping Gaia. That’s a pretty strong lineup.

 

I’m not going to make too much of an argument for this monster, because it’s not good. But the low and potentially searchable stats along with double costless effects shouldn’t be forgotten. It has future potential, especially if formats come along that make field cards the I Ching of the game. There’s nothing bad about free destruction of opponent cards.

 

Advanced: 1/5

Future Potential: 2.5/5

I like this card. Curse of Dragonfire is a Level 5 Dark Dragon-type monster with 2000 Atk and 1500 Def. The stats are as average as the Normal monster, Curse of Dragon. Unfortunately, this card does not count as Curse of Dragon on the field or in the grave like I was expecting. As it stands, Dragon monsters have a ton of support with more on the way. Level 5 isn't Level 4, but no monster is perfect. Whatever deck this ends up in will want to run those 2 Allure of Darkness cards. Normally I would want at least 400 more Atk on a monster that requires a tribute, but this card's effects make up for it. 
 
Curse of Dragonfire has two effects. First, if it is Normal or Special Summoned, you can target and destroy one Field Spell on the field. At the moment, Domain is the prime target and would allow you to use this monster's second effect. Curse of Dragonfire lets you Fusion Summon one Fusion monster from your Extra Deck for free using monsters you control, including itself. You can only do that once per turn, but not having to draw a Fusion Spell really opens up a lot of possibilities the way Performapal Trump Witch does. Fusion Summoning isn't really relevant at the moment, but future sets might really be able to take advantage of this effect. At the moment, it can easily summon yesterday's card, which is why it is in that card's artwork. 
 
Score: 3.5/5 This + Fusion Tag or other substitute fusion material = fun deck. 
Art: 4/5 Red is my favorite color, but I don't know why this has ever been a curse. Is it the skeletal imagery?
