Any effect that would inflict damage to a player increases their Life Points by the same amount, instead. During either player's turn, when a card or effect is activated that would destroy a monster(s) on the field: You can send 1 card from your hand to the Graveyard; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy it.

  • Protects monsters from effect destruction.
  • Turns burn damage directed at you into heals.


  • Turns burn damage directed at your opponent into heal.


Burn Damage

A very good Anti-Burn card. Get this monster on the field and Burn decks can't do anything against you. But since most burn decks use Lava Golem, the only thing you need to worry about is Lava Golem's removal. Try to bait out Lava Golem before you summon your Prime Material Dragon.

Counter negative effects

Some cards have the drawback of burning it's user making them risky to use. Prime Material Dragon could turn these drawbacks into additional advantages. Take for example Aegis of Gaia which gives you 3000LP but damages you 3000LP when it leaves the field.

Effect destruction

Destroying monsters via card effect is the most common way of getting rid of monsters without doing battle. Prime Material Dragon protects against this form of removal and in turn destroys the opponent's card, and is particularly useful against mass destruction cards like Special Hurrican, Armed Dragon LV10, and Steelswarm Hercules. Use this against popular cards like Sylvan Marshalleaf, Noble Knight Drystan, Archfiend Emperor, and Sea Stealth Attack.

I love Prime Material Dragon, good card and cool artwork.
Used to turbo this boi against 🔥 decks. Good times.
Sooo anyone gonna comment on the anti mass-destruction effect not working against yubel terror incarnate? Because i quite literally just summoned this thing with kimodo and yubel just ended turn and poof its gone. I had three cards in my hand.

I came here to see if anyone else knew how well this performed AGAINST Yubel. I don't know what you did but I discarded my card from my hand and boom yubel terror incarnet lost, If it came back out I simply had to ensure i had more cards in my hand.
This is the best counter to farming yubel
This 🔥ing card didnt negate marshall leaf effect I had 4 cards in my hand to counter destruction effect

^ Obviously you can't read. If Marshalleaf's effect was the last effect activated, then Prime Material Dragon should've been able to negate it. It's more likely that there were other cards activated between Marshalleaf and the OP getting a chance to respond.
Why do people STILL have issue differentiating between paying cost and inflicting damage

Because Snipe Hunter is not guaranteed to destroy the card (a 2/3 chance). Same goes with Barrel/Double Barrel/Blowback/Gattling Dragon.

This card is as powerful as it is beautiful! But, I just got it and I'm still having a hard time using its special ability to my advantage....

Aegis of gaia, graverobber, and axe of fools (as long as its not equiped to the actual dragon) works well with it
