  • 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.

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?
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.
Hope we get a structure deck based on him so that he's a lot easier to obtain.

Well, seems it is rumored to be Chazz structure deck. Leaked page have posted the cards for the structure deck as well, but not sure if it's legit or not. (high chance should be legit)

Predictions on point
The "last turn" part of this cards description is key. Don't give them that chance if possible.

Yet for some reason my opponents basically always seem to without fail attack my Paladin equipped with Arkbrave despite me having a summonable Felgrand Dragon in the grave that would go up to 4200 and could win me the game if it was summoned. Mostly just Sylvan players though.
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

i m f2p player, i can't test the deck. but i like people building their unique deck instead of copy and paste.

if i am using arkbrave dragon as theme deck. i will try mill them from deck to graveyard.
I use a modified structure deck of dragon knight using felgrand cards to grab felgrand and arkblaze then I use their effects to grab level 8 felgrand next turn arkblaze summons another. Use gaurdian to grab arkblaze from graveyard then sacrifice gaurdian for dragon arkblaze effect activates so 2 high monsters
I can sense this card is coming soon...

What amazing foresight! But then again, so did I. Or maybe I was just hoping it would be released rather than predicting it's release? Either way, it's finally here and I love it!
how come sending it to the graveyard using Vanguard Of the Dragon's effect doesn't activate arkbrave dragons effect?

"except arkbrave" so you need another lv 7or8 dragon in your graveyard.
and the effect only active on your next standby phase..

Correction: Non-targeting Banishment. One of the few abilities of Removal that can't be stopped easily. It just happens.

Like the Ancient Gear ability.
