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
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

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
P.S. love this archetype especially for the fact
that it is based off Dante's Inferno or the Divine
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.
Future Potential: 4.5/5
