Well, considering you cant obtain it by any other than buying, it is obivious.
Does dimensional prison work on this card? It just says "when it attacks", not if a attack is declared. So when they say "I attack!" with reactor dragon, can you still use dimensional prison to banish it?

But why? As long as the attack isn't happening yet, then shouldn't it work according to the card text? Or is declaring an attack considered the same as actually attacking?

Duel links doesn't differentiate between the two.

As soon as the swipe is in then it's attacking. No window.

In short, it's binary. You attack or you don't attack.

Okay. I got confused at first because both of the cards' text make it look like it could be two separate situations when you read them. But I should have known that would be too good to be true.

Dimensional prison is targeting the attacking card the moment you carry out the atk ( u move the red arrow ), meanwhile reactor dragon eff make the ATK cant be interupted the moments he ATK.
lol it can be destroyed with golden castle
just get higher than 3k atk and ancient gear becomes a joke
To me, this card makes the deck a solid Tier 2. A bit bricky tbh, but when you have the right hand, it totally kicks ass.

It's extremely bricky and it can be countered with VERY old decks such as amazoness or buster blader.

Hi guys.
Believe me when I say, THEY WILL NEVER limit this card.

They never limited silent magician, anki or canadia. What does make you think they are going to limit this one?

Not gonna happen.
armades and slugger are superior.

Slugger maybe, due to all of its supports, but Armades? lol no

Armades requires a specific condition to summon and only has 2300 ATK most of the time.

Slugger only if midfielder is on field as well. He will need more than one turn to reach more than 2800 ATK points which in the OTK meta is crucial. But yeah, it can PENALTY box the reactor dragon lol.
Good deck, extremely vulnerable to a strong back row.

It's a UR from and EX deck.

We're more likely to get 5000 gems than this getting hit.
