Pros

  • Good stats.
  • Can inflict piercing damage.
  • Can attack 2 times per turn.
  • Your opponent cannot activate anything while this card is attacking.
  • Destroys a Spell/Trap card on the field.

Cons

  • Could be costly to summon.
  • Has no effect protection outside of battle.
  • Some effects are dependent on monsters you tributed to summon him.

Tips

Summoning

Pay 2000 LP with Mausoleum of the Emperor to summon Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon. You can use Ancient Gear Castle with 2 or more counters as the tribute to summon Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon. Cost Down and Amarylease can be used together or individually to ease the summoning of Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon.

Keep in that the first two effects of Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon are dependent on the monsters you use to tribute summon him. Some of these methods may let you summon Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon without using any tribute fodder.

Geartown

When Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon attacks you can destroy your own Geartown to Special summon another Ancient Gear monster from your deck for an extra attack. Geartown will also help you ease the summoning of Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon.

It is not broken because in TCG everything is broken?

Unlike other Kuribohs, Winged Kuriboh's effect activates in the Graveyard after the Damage Step ended.

"...UNTIL THE END of the damage step..."
Winged Kuriboh effect activates after it is destroyed and sent to the graveyard, which happens AT THE END of the damage step. So Reactor Dragon can not prevent Winged Kuriboh effect from activating in the graveyard.

I see but how about other monsters like grave squirmer and FK avatar yaksha?

"until the end of the Damage Step" in this context means "until the Damage Step ends". You can't use cards like Winged Kuriboh or Grave Squirmer if Reactor Dragon attacks it. (The end of the Damage Step is still part of the Damage Step, hence why you can't chain a card like Silent Graveyard to Winged Kuriboh.)

The 1st & 2nd effect of Reactor Dragon only works if it was tribute summoned and since tribute summoned no longer relevant, this card is just same as other AG monster. Use Sphere Kuriboh or Hallowed Life Barrier to stall then you can destroyed it with Maximus or suck it with Vamp

Waboku is too strong for Duel Links since it doesn't require cost to activate

Sphere Kuriboh is useless against Reactor Dragon. As are cards like Shield Warrior (you cannot activate monster effects until the end of the damage step when Reactor Dragon attacks).

In a time where they're properly hitting the money cards, it is puzzling why this bs is still entirely free. It's so absurdly broken I can't even begin to describe. I really am sick and tired of seeing goddamn 3 of this 🔥 summoned in a SINGLE TURN every duel. The way it bypasses EVERYTHING including even monster effects ANYWHERE is just so bizarre. I never won against a Reactor Dragon deck other than it bricking.

I don't see them too much any more, but one randomly show up every now and again. I'll take it over fighting Vagabond with Lava Golem stall decks.

I don't know how to make them miss timing. Removal for the field spell (Cosmic Cyclone) isn't searchable quickly.. it just becomes all about luck and I can't defend myself quickly enough. I tend to try the "don't set anything" strategy to avoid Double Cyclone but they can just release Wyvern or the AG Castle (thankfully the Vagabond doesn't get this) and start all the triple Reactor Dragon BS.

Could you please tell me how you will by pass a Sunsaga, Chidory, Madame Verre, Pugatrio+invoker? Because once your opponent sees your character will just summon one of these and just laugh.

I hate BS comments about "year". They can summon three huge beaters that bypass everything in one single turn. And it's a deck bizarrely untouched by the banlist other than a skill nerf in late 2017. Wow, if you laugh and think you win simply by seeing the opponent's character, you're in for a big fall. None of those monsters are invincible.

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?
<< Anonymous

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.

There are also Cyberse Gadget and Ancient Gear Gadget, and the latter might gonna be in the structure deck.

So when AG came out the first time there was two monsters that gain effects via what gadget (red/green/yellow) was tributed. Long story short, ancient gadget was super awful and this is sort of a retrain that doesn’t suck and doesn’t use non archival monsters.

Too bad we still don't get Ancient Gear Gadget.

This card is only good because it can be special summoned and it can block all sorts of effects when it is attacked. Take that away, and it's just a 3k beater.

Another reason why a card like Cyber Twin Dragon and Cyber Dragon are fine in duel links... Jeeez Komoneyyyy

"This card is only good because [insert effect here]", applies to 95% cards of yugioh, just saying.

Yata-Garasu is only good because it skips the opponent's Draw Phase. Otherwise it's a 200 ATK monster that can't be Special Summoned, what a piece of crap.

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.

.....obviously, that doesn't need to be mentioned lmao

Box UR takes the most money to get, it's very unlikely they will get hit by anything other than the "limited 3" we still don't have yet for some reason.

They hit Vyon, who is a EX box exclusive. I think it’s still within reason they could hit something from these anytime down the line

How did you summon them? By the effect of a battlin boxer card? Maybe said effect locks you to on...
