"Hieratic" decks can also utilized this card well, also to prevent dead draws due to large number of high-level monsters associated with the archetype.
This is a good card to have in your Graveyard late game. That way, if you draw a high Level monster and you have no monsters to Tribute for it, "Totem Dragon" can keep it from turning into a dead draw.
Works best with "Yamata Dragon", since it's effect can instantly netting you up to +5 in card advantage (depending on the situation).
Use this card to easily Tribute Summon "Felgrand Dragon". After that, you may send the latter to the Graveyard to fulfill its Special Summon condition.
This card works well with "Imperial Iron Wall" active. When it leaves the field, it'll just go back to the Graveyard since it cannot be banished, enabling it to be reused over and over during your future Standby Phases.
This card can speed up the summon of "Yamata Dragon" and/or "Light and Darkness Dragon".
Summon "Light and Darkness Dragon" if you're going into full-force direct attack (if possible, have a "Koa'ki Meiru Drago" also). This can ensure that your opponent cannot, or at least waste more resources to block your attacks.
When this card banishes itself after using its own effects, you can use "D.D.R. - Different Dimension Reincarnation" to bring it back to the field next turn, use it to Tribute Summon another Dragon, and put "Totem Dragon" back into the Graveyard for later use.
This card makes "Overwhelm" easier to use since it won't be hard to Tribute Summon a Level 7 or higher Dragon monster. "Light and Darkness Dragon" is preferred choice, since "Light and Darkness Dragon" cannot negate Counter Traps, which is complimented by "Overwhelm".
You can send this card and "The White Stone of Legend" with "Future Fusion" to Fusion Summon "Five-Headed Dragon" in 2 turns. This will put a copy of "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" in your hand from your Deck. Then, you can Special Summon a copy of this card from your Graveyard and Tribute it for "Blue-Eyes". By sending 2 copies of this card and 3 copies of "White Stone" with "Future Fusion", you will thin 8 cards out of your Deck and have a 3000-ATK monster on your side of the field all from 1 card.
