Word of advice: don't make the mistake of ramming this into Nerokius. It will do nothing. I tried.

A monster with order to charge.

EXACTLY...a monster with "tribute to the doomed" (UR) or "order to charge" (SR) rated as a rare. I feel like these rarity rankings are complete BS.

Structured decks are for gay little boys who don't know how to play the game like you. You must be getting paid by the toddlers who run Konami to improve their public image.

I'm still receiving damage from this card even though the card says neither player takes battle damage when your opponent destroys it! Can Konami read english?!

what does that even mean lol. rarity means something if it impacts how hard it is to get the card. exploder dragon is from a structure pack, meaning that you will always get both the SR and Rs if you just buy it. please dont use whatever kind of retarded analogy like that again

If that card was a SR card, it would never be in a pack like this with another SR. So, yes rarity does have an impact here. The whole idea is that the card should not be in that pack because it shouldn't be a rare; It should be much more difficult to get. If I had an ultra rare card that I wanted and was told that I could just buy 10 packs and hope I get it or pay 500 and be 100 percent sure I...

...get it, then why would I leave it to luck? What's the point of people buying card packs to begin with? This is Konami trying to help starter noobs just like they ensure decks aren't shuffled randomly so that you can lose some games by force.

This card should be SR at the least. It isn't designed to have attacking capabilities. It's a kamikaze dragon as its name suggests. It can essentially destroy any monster more powerful than it with no consequential damage. Let's say I summon a Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon...they can just summon this card from their hand, attack and destroy BEUD due the effect, and take no battle damage. They lose a measly dragon...and I lose a BEUD which is super difficult to summon, and has waaaaay more attack power. Consider an UR trap card "Seven tools of the Bandit" that makes you have to pay 1000 life points only to destroy a trap card. If you think that this is a "rare" card, then you're one of the noobs using the preset overpowered deck cards because you can't make your own deck. This was Konami's attempt to help noobs, and the put a BS overpowered card for it.

you get the card guaranteed just for buying the pack, rarity doesnt have any meaning lol. its like bitching about how windstorm of etaqua should be sr/ur not R.

If a card has abilities that mean it should be UR, then it should be. Getting an UR gem isn't like getting a R gem when you trade a card, so no it's not bitching. It's little bitches who like to make stupid comebacks when they know something is overpowered and they can just abuse it themselves.

that's what you get for using an overpowered card

This card has a major problem. it can't deal any damage so even if you attack your opponent directly using this card, your opponent will not receive any damage. So, the only way to use this card is attack your opponent set monster or just set this card and let your opponent attack it.

Glitch: please report to konami, when an opponent attacks this card brought to the field this turn with Dragon's rebirth, and opponent is using Riryoku during battle, you still take battle damage. BS.

Indeed, I'm receiving battle damage as well with this card. :/ It wasn't like this before.

You don't take any damage from battles involving this "attacking card". If your opponent attacks, this card is not attacking and you will receive damage.

You should get banned from the game for using this card, not take battle damage. Don't see why you're complaining.

In my opinion this card should be at least SR, i dont understand why it is R lol

Summon this monster and try attack your opponent directly, then you know why it is R

It's in a pack where you're guaranteed to get it if you buy it. It makes no difference. It's like saying "Windstorm of Etaqua should be SR or UR, not R" when it really doesn't mean anything.

No. It does mean something. Getting a rare gem isn't like getting an Ultra Rare one. If it was UR, they would've never put it in this gay deck preset for noobs who can't play
<< Anonymous(Duel Novice)

It isn't designed for that. It can destroy monsters stronger than itself while taking no battle damage. It should be UR, not R. That's like saying "Seven tools of the bandit"" shouldn't be ultra rare because it causes 1000 points of damage to destroy a trap card.

Can confirm that Buster Blader fusion doesn't get destroyed and still do piercing damage when attacking this.

If this card is destroyed by Buster Blader dragon destroyer, will it still destroy? Buster blader make it so that effects can't be activated right?

Yeah the effect cant be activated since buster blader disables dragon effect
