To summon this card: Equip Metalmorph to your REBD, tap on deck, tap on Special Summon, done! You're welcome.

This monster has to still be in the deck and not in your hand.

Instructions unclear. Clicked surrender instead.
So, everything there is to say about this card also applies to Metalzoa, since it's the same thing. This has got to be up there as one of the most pointless boss monsters ever. For one, it locks your character to Bandit Keith, as you need his Switcheroo skill in case you draw this card prematurely. So, let me get this straight, I need to summon Red-Eyes, equip it with a specific trap, pray my opponent doesn't use Twister, (an investment of 3 cards and 1 turn minimum,) in order to summon a beater with barely better ATK and DEF but no effect? Why would anyone in their right mind even consider it? Oh, if I also have another specific trap, Rare Metalmorph, I can put it on this card? Well, that begs the question, why are you playing a vanilla Dragon in a Machine deck in the first place? Red-Eyes already has stronger beaters in-game that take less effort; they're called Meteor B. Dragon and B. Skull Dragon.

Technically all three of those increase consistency anyway. At the cost of card advantage, which is arguably more important. But if I really wanted to use REBMD, I'd probably use Mallet or Trader. Gets you to your Metalmorph sooner, and puts REBMD back in the Deck. Seems like a win-win.

Though, I wouldn't use REBMD/Metalzoa when I could just play a better Machine like Reactor Dragon anyway.

Basically, those two cards are from the Duelist Kingdom arc, a time in the game where rules of the game were... Still really bogus, to say the least. Monsters effects were designed rather poorly. Maybe at the time, the whole MM concept looked cool as F, but has obviously aged terribly.

Even the anime kinda acknowledged how worthless Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon was. Joey used Metalmorph on Red-Eyes in Waking the Dragons. Didn't Summon REBMD, just used the Metalmorph'd Red-Eyes.

Czar made decent use of Metalzoa in GX, Call of the Haunted'ing back Zoa after Summoning it.

This card was one of the oldest, it was designed when original Yu Gi Oh manga (the one where Yami Yugi killed baddies all he want) came out.

While other old cards got banned for being too OverPowered (Raigeki, Harpie's Feather Duster, Change of Heart), this cards is unusable for being too useless.
Can you please add red eyes darkness metal dragon to this game it's an all time favorite in the region dueling world. I used to go on dueling network back in the day and made an amazing dragon deck with it. I know I'm not the only one who would agree that this dragon (red eyes darkness metal dragon) would be a welcome and sought after card. Please consider this addition.

Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon did get an errata.

Both of its effects are now hard OPT.
We need red eyes darkness dragon, bring Atticus in already to the game please. It would be a perfect addition to a red eyes deck.

no Atticus for u sir
I've found that REBD+MM+Trap reclamation is a great combo to get a REBMD×MM, which is OP AF. But is it possible to use REW to summon REBMD?

Yes, it is

You can, but only after you summon by tributing REBD w/ MM, so it’s not worth

YEP! Deadly combo btw

Well, the real worth of this card is that you can refresh a bad state from your rebd like, destroyed at the end of turn or something like that and it got a race change, I guess.

Wait, what? I don't understand what you're talking about. Could you please clarify?

lol he means that for example... red eyes has been sent to the grave yard and you use the regretful rebirth trap card to re-summon the rebd but only last til the end phase then its gone.

So to prevent that effect from happening.. you can use red eyes black metal dragon to summon from tributing rebd + metalmorph for a new refresh monster and that's how you remove the effect of that trap card.

IT's awesome, you can negate effects during main phase.
Kinda useless, it's an absolute brick if you have it in your hand, and you can't even summon it from the hand, waste of deck space.
Wish they'd replace with b eyes darkness metal dragon.

I hope they don't. That card would be way too good in this game.

as are ca and bamboo and they are still here, I think if they are going to release him (which will probably happen because of atticus) they are going to limit him to 2 or even 1 per deck

Yeah but why the 🔥 would you do that? You can only special summon it from deck.
<< Anonymous
Bryce Reply
Actually, you can't. Cards of the Red Stone requires you to discard a lv 7 "Red-Eyes" monster as cost. REBMD is lv 8... so yet another reason to not use it.
Way of sumon this creture...please write all... I dont understand it. I have cards but...

You need red eyes b. dragon on the field, equip it with metalmorph trap card. Now you can tribute the red eyes equipped with metalmorph to special summon red eyes b. metal dragon.
