This card works very well in Dragon decks. Set "Masked Dragon"; then, when your opponent destroys it by battle, activate this card's effect, while Masked Dragon brings out a Tuner like "Delta Flyer" or "Magna Drago" for an easy Synchro Summon.
This card is an easier to summon version of "Dragonic Knight" and can replace it for most of its purposes.
You can use this card with "Shocktopus" when it is destroyed. Not only will your opponent have a weaker monster but you will also have a tougher monster.
Use this card in Inca deck, since duelists often use card such as "Destruct Potion" to destroy their dragons. Also work well as Synchro Material for the Inca dragons or to protect you against direct attack.
This card is brilliant as a safety measure in most decks lacking effective anti-destruction spells. If your field is hit by a destruction effect, you can add this card to maintain an offensive presence on the field. Keeping it in your hand in case of an emergency like that mentioned above is an excellent strategy.
Use this card as backup in a Malefic deck in case you lose your field spell so you won't be left open to attack.
Special Summon this card when you activate "The Seal of Orichalcos". Not only will the Seal boost its ATK to 2700 but your opponent will be unable to attack your weaker monsters until they've dealt with the massive beatstick that the Seal turns this card into.
Splashing this card into Gusto decks will also grant you access to unique Synchro Monsters like "Exploder Dragonwing" and "Dark End Dragon", and both of them can be an excellent choice for offensive purpose (which most Gusto decks rarely have), or you can use this card in tandem with "Shrine of Mist Valley" for Synchro Summoning higher Level Synchro Monsters like "Scrap Dragon". This card's DARK Attribute also makes it easier to Summon "Dark Simorgh".
