Evaluation

RatingB

Pros

  • High attack and good defense.
  • Magic Jammer + a better Buster Blader effect in 1 monster.

Cons

  • Both the fusion material monsters are level 7 monsters.

Tips, related cards, skills

Trap Jammer

With its ability to stop/prevent spell cards altogether, you can pressure your opponent even further by using Trap Jammer. This will help protect, not just Dark Paladin, but your other monsters from cards like Mirror Wall or other traps.

Fusion substitutes

Dark Magician and Buster Blader uses different supports, and since it doesn't say that it needs those exact monsters as the fusion materials, you can use fusion substitute monsters instead. This will allow both of them to shine individually in their own decks, or make a fusion oriented deck by putting both Dark Paladin and Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman.

Outstanding Dog Marron

You can use Outstanding Dog Marron or Sword of Deep-Seated so you can activate Dark Paladin's ability without losing a card.

Tour Bus From the Underworld

Allows you to bring back your monster from your graveyard to your deck. This can be good if you have other cards to search for them again.

Diffusion Wave-Motion

Allows Dark Paladin to attack multiple monsters in a turn and negate all their effect monster's effects.

Mirage Dragon

Increases Dark Paladin's attack and prevents your opponent from being able to activate traps during battle phase.

Totally worth getting since many characters can be easily farmed with this card, such as alexis, etc.

Ask yourself do you like/good playing with fusion deck. also, if you start late in this game. i say NO.

Reason:
1) others cards are useless comparing to the latest boxes
2) ask yourself do you want a deck with either Dark magician or Busterblader in it?
3) i don't see many duelist running dragon deck
4) if you like it effect of negate spell card, Horus dragon does a better job

Thanks!
I just start since 2 month.
I thought of this card because it is often recommended for farm LG's and events.

Somebody use this on ranked duels? Any deck tips?

The best way I found to run this deck is to do either a blue eyes or red eyes - dark paladin fusion deck where the main parts of your deck consist of the dragons and summoning them while you have 3 polymerization, defusion and fusion substitute cards which allows me to play not only dark paladin but blue eyes ultimate dragon/ red eyes meteor dragon

Any new decks for this card using arkana's skill?

Not sure if it qualifies as "new" in your book, but here it is anyway:

You can build a Dark Paladin Deck with just one copy of Dark Magician and "A Trick Up the Sleeve" skill. Since you will start the duel with guaranteed Dark Magician in your hand you can focus on including more Fusion Substitutes / Buster Blader / Emblem of Dragon Destroyer, etc and / or ways to draw Polymerization.

Was reading these comments and on a whim bought 10x of CK: PULLED BOTH DARK PALADIN AND BUSTER BLADER DRAGON DESTROYER SWORDSMAN ?!

Happen to me to. But on the last 30 packs -_-
Someone.
Is this card still considered good?
The reason I ask is that since then, there are now Silent Magician Lv8 and Horus the Black Flame Dragon Lv8 who have similar effects of negating spell cards and being able to do so WITHOUT discarding a card for their effect. Both Horus and SM are easier to summon with Lv Up compared to DP.

Ok my bad (slightly). Silent Magician Lv8 only cancels spell effects used against it.
Dark Paladin can cancel any activation of a spell card. However Horus does the same.

It's still a good card.
Strangely enough, even with silent magician and horus in the game, they don't make this card useless or obsolete. Still a very viable card.

Yugi deserves a special animation upon summoning this guy since he beats BEUD under normal condition: Kaiba having at least 4 Dragon-type monsters in his field/graveyard so that Dark Paladin would have 4900 ATK. :/

Dragon Anal Expert. Aka Dank Paladin.
