  • Special summons low-leveled monsters from your hand.
  • Destroys Field spells.
  • Searches your deck for Field spells.
  • Good defense.


  • Using the special summon effect costs you your battle phase.
  • Weak attack.


A Legendary Ocean

Use A Legendary Ocean to turn your level 5 WATER monsters into level 4 monsters which you can then special summon with Ancient Fairy Dragon's effect.

Zombie World

Use Zombie World to turn all your opponent's graveyard monsters into Zombies. Special summon Paladin of Cursed Dragon with Ancient Fairy Dragon's effect and revive a low-leveled monster in your opponent's graveyard to swarm your field.

Switch Attack and Defense

Since having a good attack stat is usually more useful than a good defense stat, so you can use cards like Inverse Universe, Shield and Sword, and Ojama Country to switch these stats.


Twins Together adds Double Ripple to your hand which could be a good way of summoning Ancient Fairy Dragon along with Power Tool Dragon.

[Skill] descriptionUser
Twins Together
Can be used when your LP is 1000 or below. Add 1 "Double Ripple" from your deck to your hand. This skill can be used once per Duel.

Use Spell Recycle: Field to return Field spells sent to the graveyard by Ancient Fairy Dragon's effect to gain LP back to your deck. An upgraded version of this skill is Field Restock which does almost the same as Spell Recycle: Field but this time it adds 1 Field card from your graveyard to hand and another Field card form graveyard to the deck. The downside is that you do not choose the Field spells to be added and you can only use Field Restock once per duel.

[Skill] descriptionUser
­Field Restock
Can be used when you have 3 or more Field Spell cards in the Graveyard. 1 random Field Spell in your Graveyard is added to your hand. Then, shuffle other Field Spells in your Graveyard into your Deck. This skill can only be used once per Duel.
Spell Recycle: Fields
Can be used when you control "Ancient Fairy Dragon". Place 1 Field Spell in your graveyard to the bottom of your deck. This skill can be unsed once per turn.

No Dragon Ravine or Destrudo combo in Duel Links so AFD is fine to be released. It maybe not a tier 1 material but it is still a good card : generic synchro, huge DEF, nice effect

However, it also means we're not getting Destrudo in DL.

I am not sure but I have heard from another duelist that they faced Ancient Fairy Dragon AG so I am sure that it will work but you might want to test it first.
Not going to help against Geartown.
I love how the signer dragons are all like, only useful in a handful of situations but *extremely* effective in those situations.

AFD is even so effective, she gets banned (as in Forbidden, not just Limited) in both OCG and TCG.

Same :D
Yusei and Leo have lines for using Ancient Fairy Dragon. Check them out in the level 3 duel quiz.

It makes sense for Leo and Luna have lines for the other's Signer Dragon.

While Yusei has lines for all of the Dragons, as he used them all during his duel against Z-One.

Not only they are siblings, but also, in one Tag Force game they accidentally have their deck, including their extra deck, swapped. So I'm not surprised they have the lines.

By the way, Luna dropping Wattfox is a reference to the same Tag Force game.

And oh, they got their deck swapped by plot, not a bug.
This could make harpies pretty relevant again with harpies hunting ground

Yay finally a slightly better Solomen Wishes with the added effect of not attacking to special summon something weaker lol
The banned card will be release
I'm sooo excited to see this card getting limited to 1 when it's released lmao

She won't, at least not now. AFD was banned for creating multiple FTK decks with her field loop, as long as FTK components aren't in DL yet she won't be banned.
Still find it funny how she is actually the first and the only Signer Dragon to get banned in both OCG & TCG.

Mainly because she is arguably the weakest Signer Dragon (with the weakest Signer partner) back when 5Ds aired

This card's effect is definitely box material, not free drop material
You activated it in the damage step.
