  • Banishes all face-up spell/trap card your opponent controls if it's special summoned from the graveyard. Can remove cards like Xing Zhen Hu, Fire Formation - Gyokkou, or Sea Stealth Attack.
  • Can special summon a level 7/8 Dragon-type monster from the grave other than itself.
  • The second effect activates on the next standby phase after it's sent to the graveyard. This can make the effect usable many times in a duel if you can keep special summoning Arkbrave Dragon from the grave.


  • First effect requires it to be special summoned from the graveyard.
  • Second effect means that you need to bring a level 7/8 Dragon-type monster(s), which can increase the odds of dead hands.


Use Dragon's Rebirth to special summon Arkbrave from your hand or grave. If it ever gets destroyed, you can special summon a level 7/8 Dragon-type monster from your grave if you have any. Having multiple copies can be good since it essentially lets you recycle the dragon monsters as long as they're not banished.

Arkbrave Dragon works well with Red-Eyes since the support cards like Red-Eyes Insight and Cards of the Red Stone are already available. They help send a Red-Eyes, which is a level 7 Dragon-type monster, to the graveyard, either from your hand or your deck.

Red-Eyes Slash Dragon can be special summon by using Arkbrave Dragon's effect, as well as Red-Eyes Spirit in a Red-Eyes deck. Dark Horus lets you special summon a level 4 DARK monster whenever a spell card is activated during your opponent's main phase,.

Dragon Knight of Creation and Paladin of Felgrand are cards that are also released in the same structure box. These 2 help with special summoning level 7 or 8 Dragon-type monster from the grave, as well as getting them from the deck.

Looks like this 🔥’s second effect can special summon dragon monsters ignoring their summoning conditions.

Arkbrave can't ignore summon conditions, it just returns a Level 7-8 dragon from the graveyard to the field unless the card you are reviving explicitly states you can't for some reason (like Felgrand Dragon and Tyrant Dragon who require special conditions).

I made this mistake because I faced some tryhard who used it to respecial summon Maximus after it had been first summoned properly. Sadly the tcg text for Maximus is misleading but thankfully I'm reading the OCG cards now.

Yeah, the TCG text for Maximus is still pre-PSCT.
You can play Arkbrave + Blue eyes as 100% META. But you'd need 3 Arkbrave + 3 spirit of white + grass is greener. Probably with Silver's Cry as well, not very easy to build.

Silver’s cry doesn’t work with Arkbrave. Unlike Spirit of White, it’s not treated as a normal monster so it can’t be revived by it

I know. But I was talking about a 30 card blue-eyes deck that I saw in a YT vid long ago, I thought Silver's Cry was included because well, you can revive 6 dragons with it (3 BEWD + 3 DSOW) but I was wrong, 30 card deck blue eyes + grass is greener doesn't include silver's cry. :)

Anytime I see someone use this card in this current meta I can't help but smile. It's such a versatile and neat card to use in a deck. I respect anyone who uses a cool rogue-like deck with Arkbrave. Too bad the "dragon" meta is so dull and unoriginal.

In the TCG it commonly finds its home in Blue-Eyes, but with the limited revival cards we have available rn they can’t reliably run this card atm. Real shame tho, it’s quite a powerful effect
Arkbrave is a super strong card as I know it.
But for some reason, with the card pool in DL, I'm not having any good success building a deck around it.

Anyone achieve any good result with ark brave?
Maybe can share some ideas...:D

There are times when I have a lvl 7 dragon in the graveyard and Arkbrave is sent there but then nothing happens in the standby phase. Is there a special conditions where it doesn't work?

Arkbrave dragon can't revive another Arkbrave dragon. Otherwise, certain dragons cannot be special summoned because of the wording on their card. It works as it should though.

I just had this problem earlier today. I was up against an Ojama deck, had Arkbrave on the field (Was trying to pull out a Stardust Dragon that'd been destroyed by battle).

Chazz had out his Ojama King, two monster zones down, so I played Kidmodo as I had no other usable cards in my hands. He destroyed both Kidmodo and Arkbrave and there wasn't any activation prompt.
KOG worthy imo
Epic card
I use this card in my deck and it doesn't work.
At the 1st turn I equipped felgrand paladin with my arkbrave then it die then in the eight turn I had the second paladin equipped with white night dragon and when enemy destroy paladin equipped with this draqgon in the next turn i couldnt summon white night dragton Did I miss sth?

you missed this "Once per turn, during the Standby Phase, if this card is in the Graveyard because it was sent there last turn: You can target 1 Level 7 or 8 Dragon-Type monster in your Graveyard, except "Arkbrave Dragon"; Special Summon it."

and this mean you need white night dragon on graveyard first then arkbrave.
combo this with Ice Night Dragon ,,too op
K guys, let's buy this structure deck 3 times.

I could only afford it twice, and tbh I don't think you need 3 to make the Felgrand/Arkbrave deck that I run work. Actually I think running 3 of this card would ruin the decks consistency even more.
Meta breaker!!!
Release asap plz

Sadly not. Dragons still aren't good enough to compete, and probably aren't even tier 2 even with this card. Still fun though, and can be strong if played properly.

Okay so I am 100% sure now that it IS Axel we're getting in December. He even says that e...
Yeah anon is right 99% of the time you'll not be summoning it, It;s not a good moster at all...
I play Shiranui myself but I hate the fact that Konami took advantage of Shiranui to sell bad box...
For no cost? Does it target the two cards?
