Rainbow Dark Dragon
What Is Rainbow Dark Dragon
Rainbow Dark Dragon is one of my favorite cards in the entire game because of its strength and summoning conditions. Rainbow Dark Dragon is a Level 10 DARK monster with 4000 ATK and 0 DEF that cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Rainbow Dark Dragon can only be Special Summoned when you have 7 or more DARK monsters in your Graveyard with different names. You can banish 7 of those DARK monsters to Special Summon Rainbow Dark Dragon from your hand. Learn all about Rainbow Dark Dragon right here! See the best and easiest ways to play Rainbow Dark Dragon and use it to perfection.
Or Is It?
Do you want an awesome card that you can use to send 4 DARK monsters to your Graveyard at once? Then, you would only need 3 DARK monsters before you could Special Summon Rainbow Dark Dragon. Painful Choice is a Normal Spell Card that allows you to pick 5 cards from your Deck and show them to your opponent. Your opponent picks one of them, and the rest go to the Graveyard. The card picked by your opponent is sent back to your hand, but if you pick the bottom 5 DARK monsters in your Deck, you will have 4 DARK monsters in your Graveyard and 1 DARK monster in your hand.
Witch of the Black Forest
Rainbow Dark Dragon Goes Straight To Your Hand
Witch of the Black Forest is a Level 4 DARK Spellcaster-Type monster with 1100 ATK and 1200 DEF that has an awesome effect for Rainbow Dark Dragon. When Witch of the Black Forest is sent to the Graveyard, you can move 1 monster with 1000 ATK or less from your Deck to your hand, but you must show that monster to your opponent. I don't think it is the end of the world if you show your opponent a Rainbow Dark Dragon because if it is what you have to do to add a Rainbow Dark Dragon to your hand, then why not? Witch of the Black Forest is a DARK monster, so that just adds to the countdown for Rainbow Dark Dragon.
Rainbow Neos looks perfectly fit for Rainbow Dragon, but Rainbow Dark Dragon can still be used as a Fusion Material. Rainbow Neos is a Level 10 LIGHT monster with 4500 ATK and 3000 DEF that requires Polymerization but doesn't return to your Extra Deck during the End Phase at all. You can use 1 of Rainbow Neos' effects once per turn, so with a list of 3 effects, there are a lot of options to choose from. You can send 1 monster you control to the Graveyard to return every monster on your opponent's side of the field to his/her Deck. If you thought that was good enough, you can send 1 Spell or Trap Card on the field to the Graveyard to return all Spell and Trap Cards on your opponent's side of the field to his/her hand. Also, you can send the top card of your Deck to the Graveyard to return every card from your opponent's Graveyard to his/her Deck. This last effect might seem terrible, but it stops a Stardust Dragon from coming back with its effect.
Rainbow Dark Dragon on Amazon
Dark Grepher is a Level 4 DARK monster with 1700 ATK and 1600 DEF that has one of the best effects for Rainbow Dark Dragon. Once per turn, you can discard 1 DARK monster from your hand to the Graveyard to send 1 DARK monster from your Deck to your Graveyard. That is 2 DARK monsters right off the bat, and you can have 6 DARK monsters in your Graveyard within 3 turns. You can also discard 1 Level 5 or higher DARK monster from your hand to Special Summon this card so that you have even more DARK monsters in your Graveyard.
Rainbow Dragon is one of the strongest monsters in the entire game.
Help, I'm Running Out of DARK Monsters
Necroface to the rescue!
Necroface is a Level 4 DARK monster with 1200 ATK and 1800 DEF that has the perfect effect for after Rainbow Dark Dragon is Special Summoned. When Rainbow Dark Dragon is Special Summoned, you can use Necroface to shuffle all of your banished cards to your Deck. Necroface gains an additional 100 ATK for each banished card, so it will have 1900 ATK if you use it right after you use a Rainbow Dark Dragon. Now, you have 7 DARK monsters in your Deck and none of them are banished. You are basically starting over with a Rainbow Dark Dragon on your side of the field. When Necroface is banished, the top 5 cards of both players' Decks are banished as well.
If Rainbow Dark Dragon is ever send to the Graveyard from the field or your hand, you won't be able to Special Summon it with a Monster Reborn. However, you can get it back to your hand with Monster Reincarnation. Monster Reincarnation allows you to select any monster from your Graveyard and add it to your hand at the cost of 1 card from your hand. Monster Reincarnation gives you a second chance to have Rainbow Dark Dragon go to your hand, and playing Rainbow Dark Dragon is always awesome.
How To Prevent Your Opponent From Playing Rainbow Dark Dragon
Imperial Iron Wall
Imperial Iron Wall is a Continuous Trap Card that prevents cards from being banished. If you have 7 DARK monsters with different names in your Graveyard, you have to banish those monsters to play Rainbow Dark Dragon. Imperial Iron Wall makes it a little harder for your opponent to do that. Now, your opponent will lose turns trying to destroy Imperial Iron Wall in order to play their desired Rainbow Dark Dragon.
