Evaluation

Rating-/10

Pros

  • High attack monster that can be special summoned.

Cons

  • Strict special summoning condition.
  • Since it's a level 7 monster, if you can't special summon it, you will need 2 tributes to tribute summon. Can potentially make it a dead card in your hand against opponents that don't use monsters with a monster destroying effect.

Tips

Since it can be pretty difficult to special summon it under its own condition, it can be special summoned much easier using cards like Dragon's Rebirth, which will only make him into a high attack beater with 2800 attack (3000 if you use Kaiba's Peak Performance).

The other cards in the structure box can somewhat help with using Dragonic Knight more effectively. Lighten the Load is good if you have multiple level 7 or higher monsters in your deck to prevent some dead hand. Trial and Tribulation and Strike of the Monarchs is if you plan on playing by tribute summoning monsters. Castle of Dragon Souls is mainly for a dragon deck, which can also special summon a banished Dragon-type monster.

Yet another card that looks cool but complicated to use.....

Complicated? Do you mean situational? Considering that effect monsters with destruction effects are flourishing, this card should see some use... though I never seem to have room for this card.

Fantastic, just had a match against a Yomi Ship card and I thought I was luring him into a trap only for the Dragonic Knight not to activate... wtf

This thing won't even work against Exploder Dragons.

I've used this card in my deck in several hundred games and I've managed to get it special summoned exactly once.

Let's answer some questions: Gravekeeper? Nope. Keith's dragons? Nope. 4 starred ladybug? Nope. Any spell/trap effect? Nope.

I can't remember exactly which card triggered the effect; I think it was an insect type, but I might be wrong. It wasn't anything used in any of the common pvp decks and it very specifically said on the card "target and destroy one enemy monster" as its effect (I think it was it's on death effect).

Dragonic Knights' effect says "when the effect of an opponents monster is activated that targets and destroys a card(s) you control", so it should therefore activate if one card or more cards are destroyed, whether it be monster or spell/trap.

4 star doesn't target
Barrel Dragon Targets first, tosses coins 2nd, then destroys.
That 2nd phase prevents Dragonic's effect from applying as they need to be targeted, then destroyed. If his effect read "if" not "when" then it would've worked.

Dragonic Knight doesn't work with Barrel Dragon because it isn't guaranteed to destroy a monster. (The same reason you can't use Destruction Jammer on it.) The card needs to target and be guaranteed to destroy it for Dragonic Knight to be used. (Oh, Barrel Dragon's coin flip and destruction happen simultaneously anyway, not that that has any effect on a Quick Effect being chained to it.)

Here is the reason this card sucks ass: Aside from the VERY SPECIFIC trigger for it to be special summoned, half of the monster destruction triggers on this game (Those from Bandit Keith gun machines) can't be countered by this card.

Why? Because they're not guaranteed to destroy the monster. It's the same with Stardust Dragon, the guy can't activate his effect against any of Keith machines on the IRL game.

Blame Konami, but ATM the card is absolutely useless.

I would just like it notified that I, DB, know HOW to look up the rulings. It isn't that hard, but complicated to new players which I get. However, I've legit been preoccupied w/ the 1.5x EXP event (which Bakura is in the way off) to even test the new Card Packs. So Edgar's tirades are w/e to me, but he still shouldn't be suck a dick to any & everyone. -_-

@Daemon Blitzkrieg my argument wasnt targeted at anyone in particular so im sure you are experienced enough to understand the more complicated nuances of yugioh,as you self stated however rulings are complicated to most newcomers,also as far as the average yugioh player goes most aren't even going to thinking about looking up rulings

its unfortunate however konami should consider adding rulings to this app so they're at least easier to find

Your analysis of this card is poor, please delete

At least it's neat to hear Chazz call it out

Flip effect not able to activate summon condition because only flip may not destroy any of your card(s). You must have a card in the field and destroy by opponent's monster effect. I doubt how can it happen... I think the activate condition of this card is UR, although the card placed in R. :p

Repost plz?couldn't understand one single word of that gibberish which I assume is some poor attempt at English.

As for the flip effect it depends on whether or not it targets and destroys a card you control (this won't trigger the summoning condition at all if the flip effect is activated in the middle of the damage step)as for the rest of your statement please use proper English not engrish(broken English) or just post in your own native language.

As may of you i tried to special summon this card with many other cards, but it never happen...
The only two things that i can think about this are this: 1 there's a bug in the game 2 if you go and check on the page of this card on fandompedia you could see in the section of the ruling that this card can only special summoned when your opponent target and destroy your cards, not yourself

It did work for me, but I can't even remember what card my opponent used to trigger it. And I have never been in another situation where it's effect could have been triggered. So I ended up taking it out of my deck.

I don't think Zorc's effect counts as targeting

You know, THIS fellow right here might be a REALLY good tool vs lvl 40 Bakura's Man Eater Bug.

I don't get how this card is supposed to work. Nothing seems to trigger it

I would not mind if Konami adds some racing elements but it will probably be for a new game mode ...
