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.

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 🔥 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

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.)

As far I know lady bug doesn't target so I'm assuming the answer is no, I'm sure edgar will start screaming at me if I'm wrong though

The other anon already answered. It doesn't target. I don't see why should I answer back to you, but seeing how you're so 🔥ing salty right now...

I myself am the other anon,my saltiness is directed more towards your attitude towards less knowledgeable players more so than your personal 🔥 (🔥ed 🔥),long story short ignorance of rulings does not equal lazy players/playerbase,there are some players who actually are lazy but most don't fall into that category

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.
<< Anonymous(Anonymous)

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.
Edgar81539
Another situation where this card won't work is when flip side effects are activated thanks to an attack. Since flip effects activate in the middle of the damage step, you can't use the effect of Dragonic Knight to counter the activation of Man-Eater Bug or a similar monster or any of their like. It's a different story when the opponent flips the monster on his own.

Considering how situational this card is Konami should just ditch and replace it with Tragoedia or something similar

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.

Well, extremely situational means the card is too complicated to use.

doesnt trigger off of crimson ninja destroying a trap card?
<< Anonymous(eMi)
Edgar81539 Reply
Crimson Ninja faces the same dilemma as the Keith machines; since you don't know the card you don't know if it's going to get destroyed or not. So Dragonic Knight can't be used against it.

Too bad there aren't too many triggering effects atm

Some duel links guy
His effect didn’t activate when my opponent used man-eater, is that ok, or is this a glitch?
<< Anonymous(Some duel links guy)

If you attacked and destroyed Man-Eater Bug, its effect activates during the Damage Step, a period where you cannot summon monsters.
Berger
Ok, so most of the card effects that target and destroy a card won't trigger this card's effect... so, isn't it easier to build a list of cards that can actually trigger this card special summon effect? I've never been able to special summon this monster with his effect, so I can't even start the list, but if anyone here could start it, sure sooner or later we all will be able to use this card better.

Oh, and before someone get angry with me because of the "engrish", yeah, it's not my 1st language so I'm sorry if I offended someone. It's just that It's not easy to find answers in any brazilian blogs. Anyway, I hope everybody can understand me and focus in answering the all questions 4 new and old players alike. Thnx

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.

Doesn't trigger off of Gravekeeper's Oracle either...

Gravekeepers oracle effect doesn't target and unfortunately this card only be special summoned the effect of the opponents monster targets, another reason to hate Oracle if you ever face it lol :p
