Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss

As we all know, it's the captain of the deck. It's burly with both 2500 ATK and DEF. It's easy to make. It mills 3 monsters and triggers your Burning Abyss effects. You want to make this card turn one. Also, it can retrieve Cir and be revived via Cir in a loop.

5/5

Ah Dante. I love the name so much I might name my first born son Dante. What more needs to be said about Dante that wasn't said in the 2 reviews he received in 2014? Burning Abyss remains relevant and continues to see support in coming sets. As a monster, Dante is a Rank 3 Light Warrior-type XYZ with 1000 Atk and 2500 Def. He lives in defense position most of the time, while his effect lets him boost that Atk to 2500. As more time goes on, more monsters seam to want to overlay on top of him or Special Summon him. His effect cost triggers all of the Malebranches, so he fits very well even when his boost effect is negated. Finally, he has a grave effect to send up any other Burning Abyss card to the hand. When Burning Abyss got hit, Dante did not. You run 3 and wait for more support. Then again, the deck would be fine with 1 or 2 because of how easy it would be to recycle Dante back to the Extra Deck. He's just that good.
 
Score: 4.5/5 Lightsworn loves him, too.
Art: 5/5 All the Burning Abyss cards have great artwork.

Whammin-dorf, King of Smash

So here we are on Tuesday and we're reviewing Dante, Traveler of The Burning Abyss. Now this card is good. Like with a capital G. So Dante here lets you mill 3 cards off the top of your deck and for each card you send he gets 500 atk. When he attacks he is able to automatically change to defense position leaving him safe from most attacks. With this effect you're able to mill hopefully multiple Burning Abyss monsters so that you're able to get their effects off giving you multiple plusses. So his effect is a slight gamble with possibly milling cards you don't want milled. I would say a good choice would be Galaxy Cyclone so you can still get some use out of it if it ends up getting milled. Then if he's destroyed he gets to add any Burning Abyss card from the grave to your hand. So his effect is what makes this deck extremely fluid and gets mad plussing going on. And he's very easy to summon only requiring 2 level 3 monsters which is what this deck focuses specifically on.
 
Advanced: 4.5/5 (for Burning Abyss only)
Art: 4/5 background art is really cool to see the tortured souls 
P.S. love this archetype especially for the fact that it is based off Dante's Inferno or the Divine Comedy

Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss

Dante changed the game for a good chunk of time, and it will continue to be a player for years. The game is in extremely short supply of powerful rank 3’s, and that’s putting it mildly. So any deck with a surplus of level three monsters runs this. Not only that, but milling three cards from the deck is gold. I don’t need to express the value of the card in Burning Abyss decks, because it’s obvious, but outside of Burning Abyss, Dante still has real value. Phantom Knights love Dante, and the graveyard is a huge focus in Japan right now, as Blue-eyes/Felgrand decks are running over everything. This is just the tip of the iceberg for a rank 3 with the pleasant secondary attribute of being a fairly large beatstick that protects itself after attacking.

The future potential of Dante is high. He was restricted to one in Japan, but that’s a move against Burning Abyss, not the card itself. Being able to mill three cards (twice) is going to be in play in the future. As more and more cards are released that give resources for simply being sent to the graveyard or that benefit from a large early graveyard, Dante’s value will continue to increase. Just off the top of my head, the Dark Magician Girl support card, Apple Magician Girl comes to mind. A level 3 spellcaster about to be released in Japan that can add three monsters from the grave to the hand. Cards like these will always trickle into the game over time, and Dante will be there to help people use it well. He isn’t a monster that will fade into obscurity.

Advanced: 4/5
Future Potential: 4.5/5
