What could be the next Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Manga Dragon?

Since Synchro Summon was first introduced in "The Duelist Genesis", synchro summoning has become a serious consideration in deck building. It involves playing the right monsters to go towards the required star level, and also using several monsters for their tuner aspect, such as "Effect Veiler".

However, ever since Xyz Summon was introduced, and this new introduction has diminished the popularity of Synchro Summon. Nonetheless, with the introduction of Dragon Rulers, Synchro Summon has once again picked up popularity, especially the level 8 synchro monsters as players can now synch a level 1 tuner with a level 7 dragon ruler monster.

Although it is not released in the TCG yet, one level 8 synchro monster has become a popular tech in the OCG build of Dragon Rulers in order to protect the extremely important "Vanity's Emptiness" in mirror matches. This card is none other than "Flashing Karat Dragon, Stardust"!

"Flashing Karat Dragon, Stardust" is the duel dragon version of "Stardust Dragon" in the manga, and for the rest of the signer dragons, duel dragon versions also exist. However, not all of them has been released yet. As for now, only 4 has been released, and they are as follows:


The above is "Stardust Dragon" and its duel dragon counterpart, "Flashing Karat Dragon, Stardust"

Name: Flashing Karat Dragon, Stardust
Level 8/ Dragon/ Light/ Synchro/ Effect/ 2500/ 2000
Effect: 1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can target 1 face-up card you control; once during this turn, it cannot be destroyed by battle or by card effects.


On the right of the above picture is the newest duel dragon that was recently released, "Jeweled Demon Dragon, Red Daemon", which is the duel dragon version of "Red Dragon Archfiend"

Name: Jeweled Demon Dragon, Red Daemon
Level 8/ Dragon/ Dark/ Synchro/ Effect/ 3000/ 2000
Effect: 1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
Once per turn, during your Main Phase 1: You can destroy all other face-up Attack Position monsters on the field. Other monsters cannot attack during the turn you activate this effect.


Name: Power Tool Mecha Dragon
Level 7/ Machine/ Dark/ Synchro/ Effect/ 2300/ 2500
Effect: 1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
During your turn, when an Equip Spell Card is equipped to this card: You can draw 1 card. You can only use this effect of "Power Tool Mecha Dragon" once per turn. Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can target 1 face-up Equip Card on the field that can be equipped to this card; equip it to this card.


Name: Ancient Faerie Dragon
Level 7/ Dragon/ Dark/ Synchro/ Effect/ 2100/ 3000
Effect: 1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
During your turn, when a Field Spell Card is activated: Draw 1 card. You can only use this effect of "Ancient Fairy Dragon" once per turn. Once per turn, if there is a face-up Field Spell Card on the field: You can target 1 face-up Attack Position monster on the field; destroy it.

As can be seen from the above images, out of the six main dragon synchro monsters in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's era, 4 of the duel dragon counterparts has already been released, what is left now is only the duel dragon counterpart for "Black Rose Dragon" and "Black-Winged Dragon".

So, readers, which one of the two remaining dragons do you all think will be released next? :D


The card on the right of the above image is "Moon Flower Dragon - Black Rose", which is the unreleased duel dragon counterpart of "Black Rose Dragon".

Name: Moon Flower Dragon - Black Rose
Level 7/ Dragon/ Attribute-unknown/ Synchro/ Effect/ 2400/ 1800
Manga Effect: 1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
Once per turn, when a monster is Special Summoned (including this card): Target 1 monster on the field; return it to the hand.


And the above image is "Mysterious Winged Dragon - Black Feather", which is the duel dragon counterpart of "Black-Winged Dragon".

Name: Mysterious Winged Dragon - Black Feather
Level 8/ Dragon/ Attribute-unknown/ Synchro/ Effect/ 2800/ 1600
Manga Effect: 1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
When you take 400 or more damage: Send 1 card from the top of your Deck to the Graveyard for every 400 damage you took, then this card gains 400 ATK for each monster sent.

I'm not sure about you guys, but I'm certainly looking forward to the release of "Moon Flower Dragon - Black Rose" because if it retains the effect from the manga, it will definitely be an awesome addition to the Extra Deck. :)

    1. haha yea, Constellar Pleiades can only use its effect twice whereas Moon Flower Dragon - Black Rose can use its effect multiple times. Of course the drawback is that Moon Flower Dragon - Black Rose can only activate its effect when a special summon occurs while Constellar Pleiades can use its effect anytime. However, just like you, I prefer Moon Flower Dragon - Black Rose. XD
