  • Attack is high for a monster that doesn't require a tribute. It can go higher by using Mountain or Rising Air Current field spell.
  • It inflicts battle damage upon attacking a defense position monster with lower defense than this monster's attack.


  • When this card attacks, it switches to defense position. Defense is 0 which makes it an easy target.


0 defense countermeasures

Use Half Shut on Spear Dragon to protect it from attacks when it's on defense position. When it switches to defense position due to its effect, Labyrinth of Nightmare switches it back to attack position at the End Phase. Gamushara can switch Spear Dragon to attack position when it's targeted by an attack, it also inflicts damage equal to the attack of Spear Dragon when the attacking monster is destroyed by battle.

Attack Boost

Spear Dragon can get a very high attack along with Rising Air Current. The decrease in defense doesn't matter since it has a very low defense to begin with.

Switch to another Dragon

If used in a Dragon deck, you can use Dragon's Rebirth after it attacks to do a second one, or to prevent yourself from being vulnerable.

This card is amazingly underrated. Ive been lucky to score 3, and has been running this as a beatstick in my red eyes (ties that bind skill) deck, and this is an amazingly threatening monster that completely destroys exodia along with red eyes fast pace. The piercing is devestating if used right, 1900 base atk is insane even if you do not attack with it, very satisfied with getting 3 of this. Furthermore,i experimented a bit and super rush is obviously super good with this too. Try 3 of this in red eyes. You wont regret it

In the 1st place, trying to get 3 Spear Dragon is just pure bad. Running it alongside Red Eyes is just another level of bad. I mean, the guy did says he's beating exodia deck which mostly runs by either bad duelist or memer

Sure, i dont run a refined version of red eyes with 3 wyvern or gozuki. Since I have 3 spear dragons, I experimented with it in dragon beatdown and red eyes and really saw a potential in red eyes, as the red eyes can be board prescence, making your opponent scared to go aggressive on your spear dragons. And if they go on defensive, piercing from spear every turn is pretty devestating

Im just saying with super rush and other defensive cards around, with this card having high base atk and piercing on its own, people do underrate the power of this card. Exodia decks may be a meme, but i ran up against many exodia deck that just straight up have head in their hands, and win after i destroy 2 or 3 monsters. With piercing, I'll kill them faster, through their Blue dragon summ

I think you're on to something using it with super rush, it also can put Winds in the graveyard for desert twister if you are using Votd or kidmodo to filler in your red eyes beatdown decks

Level 4 beatsticks that are only beatsticks should not be UR. They're almost never worth it. Not only do they often get powercreeped out by an N or R card in the very next pack or so, but they're not even extremely valuable when they're freshly released.

Are there that many competitive decks with Blazing Inpachi that wouldn't also work with Great Angus? These marginals gains in ATK rarely tilt a game one way or the other in a meta swarming with non-battle removal like SRH and tribute to the doomed, and even moreso swarming with cards that change battle positions like econ, security orb and windstorm that are all staples. Not to mention Mirror wall or even wild tornado for goodness sakes.

Obviously the higher attack on any monster the better but let's be real, you won't win many games with an 1850 beater that you wouldn't have won with an 1800 or even a 1700 in its place, especially if those weaker monsters have actual useful effects or a better DEF. It's all just superficial. Of course the first 1900ATK level 4 should be rarer than most but I think SR is sufficient.

They don't have to be ultra powerful but In need theory they should be the best cards in the game, which you can certainly argue this card is not one of. In fact, you could probably list several SR and maybe even a couple R/N cards that are superior to this card. For fairness you could even use cards in boxes of the same size like the SR super rush headlong which should probably be an UR instead

Why make a card ultra rare if it's not ultra strong relative to non-UR cards in the game? Why else should a card be in the highest tier of rarity?

That's a good point. Technically speaking, you have the same odds of pulling this card as you have to pull any of the SR cards (1 out of however many packs you have left because there's only one of each SR In a box). With that said, there's only two spots for URs in a box, only two spots for cards that in theory are of of the highest caliber - why waste one spot on such a mediocre card?

I hope and wish if there is a rational reason why this is an UR card. There must be an idea behind this (?)

Konami says it's 1900 base atk, piercing damage and 2100 atk when Mountain is active on the field. That's enough for a card to be UR.

Without taking account of its drawback or the fact that standard beater are going to be powercreep'd quickly. Typical komoney

This card is arguably better than GAF since it has trample and unlike GAF you can switch it to attack mode at the start of your turn whereas GAF more or less forces you to wait 2

If you have them both. This card is UR and gamushara is event exclusive. Getting multiple copy for gimmicky strategy is not worth it.
