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.

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 🔥ing. It's little 🔥es who like to make stupid comebacks when they know something is overpowered and they can just abuse it themselves.

That effect only applies when you are attacking with it. If it is getting attacked, it is not applied.
Card is broken....Does nothing against Dark Magician of Chaos. BEWARE

It's not broken, so there's nothing to fix. It's just you.

Exploder: "If this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard"

DMoC: "If this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle, after damage calculation: Banish that opponent's monster."

Wait, it's just the destruction effect.

Forgot the no battle damage thing only applies if Exploder Dragon is the one attacking anyway.
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?!

The card states your opponent takes no damage and you take no damage if you ATTACK. If it is ATTACKED, you still take damage.
Why dont forbidden chalice work on it?

Structured decks are for 🔥 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.

Lack logic much?
If something is overpowered you can expect people to use it, because they won't trust others not to and then have an advantage.
If you have a problem with a card then that is what your problem is with. You can't blame people for playing the game their way.
Looks like crap again in dragon deck
Word of advice: don't make the mistake of ramming this into Nerokius. It will do nothing. I tried.
best rare as SR

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 🔥ed 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 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.
