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.

Any ritual dipshit.
It's an extra monster in the hand to ritual summon with.

Definitely NOT any Ritual.

Some Ritual Spells asks for a specific monster (the most relevant one in DL, Machine Angel Absolute Ritual, restricts you to Warrior or Fairy), or asks for monsters on the field only, there's even a Ritual Spell that doesn't use tributes at all (one of Gishki's Ritual Spell uses your LP instead).

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
