Tempest the Storm Dragon
Tempest, the Storm Dragon
WIND/Dragon - Effect/7/2400/2200
Activate this effect by removing from play a total of 2 Dragon-Type or WIND Monster from your hand and/or Graveyard, except this card. Special Summon this card from your hand or Graveyard. Return this card Special Summoned by this effect to its owner's hand during your opponent's End Phase. Also, activate this effect by sending this card and 1 WIND Monster from your hand to the Graveyard. Add 1 Dragon-Type Monster from your Deck to your hand. When this card is removed from play, add 1 Dragon-Type WIND Monster from your Deck to your hand. The effect of "Tempest, the Storm Dragon" can only be used once per turn.
This is a pretty interesting quick summoning card due to release in Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy, with Wind, Water, Fire, Earth versions of the monster with varying stats.
Pretty interesting card for Phantom Beast Planes, assuming you use Debris Dragon in your build. And of course works nicely for Harpies too, since you can search for Harpy Pet Dragon / Pet Baby Dragon. And of course things are looking up for Dragunities with its monsters as all wind and tons of Dragons. Some things this card enables.
1. Quick summoning from hand/grave. Seems like easy free summon for a 2400 attacker
2. Deck tutor for Dragons, though right now I think best is Debris. (If you use the Earth version, throw Dandylion like a pro and search for Debris)
3. Level 7 makes for easy Drago-Sac / Big Eye xyz material
4. Free summoning combo - pending ruling confirmation
I think even Dragon deck fanatics can start to think if playing multiples of like 2-3 varients of this dragon coupled with good monsters from the respective attributes would work nicely.
Yes, discarding Tidal (Water varient) and Marksman to send a water monster to grave while destroying a card is really pretty boss too. Blaster (Fire varient) with some Volcanic Shell action anyone?
And yes, Earth version for Machina sounds good too, though Redox (Earth varient) is only 1600atk sadly. Remove whatever you discarded to summon Fortress to get out Redox, then Big Eye / Drago-Sac your way to victory! Or you can just discard Redox and another earth to revive any Earth you want, including Fortress himself. This card and its different varients really creates alot of combos for many many decks. I expect them to be Super even in OCG so prices are gonna soar.
PS: Yes, Ophion will stop the combos cold, all you negative "my opponent always has Maxx C/ Veiler so combo fail" players but not as if your opp will always have Ophion on the field right?? Anyway to Ophion players I say, Token sundae them then chain spin them away with Miyabi!
