Rating8.0 / 10

The effect of the card allows a player have two more Thunder Dragons in hand. Additionally can be fusion materials for Twin-Headed Thunder Dragon.



  • Can be used to thin out your deck.
  • Easy fusion summon high attack monster with only needing 1 copy in your hand an a Polymerization or Fusion Gate.


  • Low attack monster that requires 1 tribute to summon.
  • Not really useful other than to use for fusion summoning Thunder Dragon.
  • Costly investment since it requires 2/3 copies and also needing to buy Fusion Dragon from card trader.


  • It's best to use it's activation as soon as you get this card to avoid getting a second or third copy from your normal draw phase.
  • Recommended use is in a deck that focuses on fusion similar to Two Fusion Dragons
  • You can use Switcheroo with 3 copies of it to get a better starting hand advantage if you do not use them for fusion summoning.

This thing was overused pre-nerf switcheroo in relinquished / venus decks. A +1 and a deckthinner.. what more did you want? Not to mention the 2 dragon fusion recipe to endlessly grind SDs.
Yeah, a real crappy card..
You need 7 dragon balls to summon shenron.

Sorry my mistake. I think you shall get 3 of this and 2 of its fusion monster (twin headed thunder dragon). Because its effect is quite useful ( to thin your deck) on most PVP deck.

Why I can not use optional fusion material with this card? Is it bug?
I want to build some strategy against this deck. Recomendations?
Is bubonic vermin a good substitute if you don't have thunder dragon?
Why would you use this card over the other one?

Because for one you don't need to set it and wait a turn to do your deck thinning? Bubonic Vermin also gets fucked by effect negation like the one from Element Saurus and Wicked Flamberge Baou
Glitched. In pvp you consistently see people with 4 thunder dragons in their deck. And no it is not because of switcheroo. Seen 4 in enemy graveyard multiple times
Ok so what's up with the cheaters some how pulling 4 thunder dragons out their decks? And you know what the funny part is? You still lose and stay below gold rank 4 lmao

and most likely, if they knew how to build relinquished properly, you'd be going back to gold 4

Listen..I can count to 4. More than 20 times already, I've watched people WITHOUT using bandit Keith do this. I've watched them throw 1 TD out, get 2 more, throw 1 of those 2 out and grab another. If you play enough you will see what they are doing. It's very easy to see the thunder dragon card is glitched as they are surpassing the card limit and holding 4 in their deck. I've been dueling 4 years

Very expensive. But extremely good! I have fusion summoned so many times on the FIRST GO! However make sure to have solid beat down monsters in your deck. Counter spells and Counter traps are recommended. Along with some equip spells. GO FOR 2 POLYMERISATION'S.
