  • Special summons itself from your hand for no cost.


  • Gives your opponent a free revive.
  • Can only be special summoned once per turn.


  • Special summon this card during the first turn when there are no monsters in the graveyard.
  • Use this card in decks that use tribute summon to bring out their big monsters like Hazy Flames, Ancient Gears or Monarchs.
  • This card can be special summoned and then used as food for another monster with Beast Rising. Significantly boosting it's attack by 1600 points. A deck that can utilize this strategy is Haze Flame.


Monarchs are an archetype of level 6 and 5 monsters heavily reliant on tribute summoning to get their effects out. Dynatherium is a great card to use because special summoning it provides you tribute fodder on the field. You can special summon Dynatherium and then tribute into Thestalos the Flame Monarch, this combo easily knocks a card out of their hand balancing your card advantage.

Banish graveyard

Use these cards to remove form play level 4 monsters in the graveyard, so that your opponent will have nothing to revive when you special summon Dynatherium.

LV monsters

Special summon Dynatherium and then tribute into either Armed Dragon LV5 or Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV6. You can then use the tribute summon LV monster to destroy the revived monster. This allows your Armed Dragon LV5 to turn into Armed Dragon LV7 or Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV6 to turn into Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8 during the end phase.

Its OCG name is even more confusing lol.

It's "Swift Hippo Balucitherium".

Not only it's clearly not a hippo, but also, Balucitherium is a prehistoric animal related to horses and rhinos. Not hippos or elephants.
Way better than Tricky, especially if you’re just using it to triune summon. Your opponent won’t likely benefit from this cards effect early game, and you don’t have to do anything dumb like negging yourself in a four card format.
Maha vailo for farming or dynatherium for U.A. Which is more valuable(i dont have any copies of any of these 2)

Dynatherium is more valuable for any OTK deck that requires tributes. There isn't a single character that can only be farmed with a Maha Vailo deck, so it's not really an important card imo.
I'm gonna use this card with my U.A deck, so I can use Zane in my ranked.
I think you can replace Caligo Claw Crow with this card.
Can you chalice Dynatherium to cancel his ability and summon another one ?

No you cant, it is a condition not an effect, thus you can only summon it once per turn.

But, you can chain chalice to negate its effect to prevent opponent from getting a free special summon
Why is this a UR?

It can be special summon directly from your hand. This means you can summon twice in one turn. For example, special summon it first, then upgrade it with the Purple colour Beast Lord(SR from rank duel bonus) which allows single monster upgrade but it is Lv7.

A free Level 4 Special Summon would be really useful once we have Synchro and especially Xyz in the game.

Also, Special Summoning this card in your first turn allows you to get a Level 5-6 monster out right away.

Special Summon this card first, then Tribute it to Tribute Summon a Level 5-6 monster.

purple color beast lord = behemoth king of all animals
Chaos hunter would be viable with this maybe
