The King

For YGO players, King = JACK ATLUS which somehow = Red Daemon's Dragon//Red Dragon Archfiend

While most players either go for Colossal Fighter, Scrap Dragon or maybe even Stardust Dragon when they have a level 8 worth of tuner and non-tuner, not many would bring out Red Daemon as his effect unlike Fighter and Stardust doesn't protects itself, or Scrap Dragon which sets up play. Some may even go for Mental Sphere Daemon//Thought Ruler Archfiend because it can't be targeted by spell/traps.

The only advantage of bringing out Red Daemon would be having a 3000 beat, which would come handy if your opponent brings out tokens, I'm afraid thats about it.

BUT!! As un-useful as he might be, many duelist, that are running generic syncros and not themed extra deck, would still have a copy of this dragon in it. Why? While he is situational, his good.

Lets see what deck this card is good against.

1. DandyWarrior//Quickdraw Dandy

- MY major problem with the deck is Ryko and the tokens, Red Daemon clears them for me. While you might say he may end up being blow up by Black Rose or Junk Destroyer ... doesn't that happen to everyone aside from Stardust?

2. Scrap

- Slowly BUT surely, Scrap is picking up steam and coming into the competitive scene and annoy the crap out of us. This card DESTROYS Scrap Goblin(the most annoying card outside the syncros) before it gets the loop going. And can take out Scrap Dragon and tie up with Scrap Twin Dragon. Stardust just ends up getting rape here, Colossal Fighter and Red Daemon can act as beats, but Red Daemon has his destruction effect, the only other good level 8 generic syncros which can work against Scarps are Scarp Dragon himself and Dark End Dragon (which for us SEA players ... )

But I'm afraid thats it, AND its really not that good a solution too...

Well, let us take a look at a GENERIC extra deck.

1x Trishula (OCG)//Mist Wurm (TCG) - FOR DA RICH!!
1x Stardust Dragon
1x Scrap Dragon
1x Colossal Fighter
1x Black Rose Dragon
1x Brionac
1x Goyo Guardian
1x AOJ Catastor
1x Arms Aid // Armory Arm

9 spaces taken (8 for us common people).

We really DO have space for him. So, thats why we end up having Red Daemon in here so it might save our butt when Stardust can't.
