But does it tho? I have read you need to fusion and sent to the graveyard to be even used by SRM
For the most part, this card is "better" than meteor black dragon, simply because it's fusion materials are better.
summoned skull is superior to meteor dragon any day, meaning that if you somehow could not get a poly or red eyes with you, summoned skull still makes a decent monster to use by itself. The same cannot be said for meteor dragon.
