    [DANE] Fairy Dragon Larvalaur aka Not!Firewall baby

    A new DARK Dragon monster following the footstep of Iron Dragon Tiamaton, Mana Dragon Zirnitron, Chaos Dragon Levianieer and Illusion Dragon Phantazmei (which means, it is based on dragons from myths and legends) was revealed by Konami's Twitter:



    DANE-JP020 妖醒龍ラルバウール Youseiryuu Larvalaur (Strange Awakening Dragon Larvalaur/Fairy Dragon Larvalaur)
    Level 1 DARK Dragon Effect Monster
    ATK 0
    DEF 0
    You can only use the 1st and 2nd effects of this card’s name once per turn, each.
    (1) If a monster you control is destroyed by battle or an opponent’s card effect: You can Special Summon this card from the GY (if this card was there when that monster was destroyed) or hand (even if not), and if you do, banish this card when it leaves the field.
    (2) If this card is Special Summoned: You can target 1 face-up monster on the field; discard 1 card, and if you do, add to your hand 1 monster from your Deck with that target’s Type and Attribute, but a different name.


    My thoughts:

    Despise is appearence and former name suggested, it have nothing to do with Firewall Dragon. He's following the same theme as Iron Dragon Tiamaton, Mana Dragon Zirnitron and Illusion Dragon Phantazmei. Which means he's based on a mythical dragons (like Tiamaton is based on Tiamat and Zirnitron is based on the slavic dark magician dragon Zirnitra. Phantazmei ressemble Thanos... who have nothing to do with dragons... but seems Phantazmei is based on the slavic dragon Zmei which is an ennemy of the celestial gods... Well now the Thanos reference make sense now. And Chaos Dragon Levianieer is based on the Leviathan obviously).

    On a more technical point: more consistency for Blue-Eyes (Red-Eyes doesn't need this at all. Black Metal Dragon and Red-Eyes Insight covers the deck consistency quite well) is always welcomed. Now the deck have 6 Melody of the Awakening Dragon to run max.

    Quite good. It also makes DAD-centric decks more consistent. It also searches BLS - Envoy the Beginning, Levianieer, Diabolos, REDMD for Not!Red-Eyes decks.

    Me likey.

    By itself only on the field it can search a DARK Dragon.

    With Oasis of Dragon Souls it can search a DARK Wyrm.

    With Zombie World it can search a DARK Zombie.

    And Larvalaur here is named after the dragon Balaur from Romanian folklore.

    And its discarding is on the effect rather than the cost, so it triggers Dark Worlds.
