Did you have any monsters in your grave that wasn't dragon type?

Don't over look this card. It's bum buddies with vanguard dragon. U take them both and use both effects simultaneously then summon tyrant dragon the next turn.
Is it worth it to have 3 copies of these though
Too bad this conflicts with blue dragon summoner.

Oh well

I bought two Vanguard of the Dragon and one of these Totem Dragons from Card Trader. Sadly, I don't have enough Earth Stones for my second Totem, yet.

I have two >:D but in all fairness one is a prismatic reward card from the KC cup.
5 SR Jewel for this is to much should be 3 or lower

I'd be fine with 4, but I do agree that 5 is a bit too much for basically a glorified Kaiser Sea Horse (or flame ruler if you're using Tyrant Dragon).
This deck is way better combined with tyrant dragon. And with the new dragon support; Vanguard dragon, this has potential to be OP. I'm suprised no one has made a deck around this card yet on the ladder, or I haven't seen it yet. I've been playing around with a tyrant dragon+REBD variant deck. I've made it to gold with it. need some work.
I found that if your running a dragon's only deck with Gandora or blue eyes this card can be extremely useful to regain board control.

I was just thinking this was the ultimate setup card for gandora. The opponent will pour all their cards on the field when they think they can attack an empty board and just totem dragon

So for a BEWD Deck we sould buy this card or just use 3 Kaiba-man? I mean you cant special summon it so easy... You have to set it on your first turn or sent it to the grave from the start of the game so you can speacial summon it later on... I mean is pretty hard to use it... and you cant play many dragons in BEWD Deck nor the REBD Deck so you can special summon it later on ... This card HAVE to come on your first hand or is pretty useless... But if you disagre tell me why i may be wrong...

Kaibaman's better IMO. Not only is it faster (can summon both Kaibaman and BEWD in the same turn) and more reliable (don't need an empty field), but it also gives you much more deck building freedom (can run non-Dragons safely). I'd only run Totem Dragon for BEWD if they ever release Solidarity.
