Pros

  • Your opponent cannot respond with cards or effects when this monster is Normal Summoned to the field.
  • You can pay Life Points until you have only 100 left, in which the Life Points paid will contribute to this monster’s ATK and DEF value.
  • You can pay 1000 Life Points to destroy any monster on the field. This effect can be used multiple times in 1 turn provided you have Life Points to spend.

Cons

  • Cannot be Special Summoned by any means, except by Sphere Mode which ignores this specific condition.
  • If you paid Life Points for Ra’s ATK and DEF value, leaving you with only 100 Life Points makes you very vulnerable to your opponent’s effect damages.

Tips

  • Due to the lack of support for Divine element and Divine-Beast type currently, it is quite challenging to for your Divine monster to exhibit further potential on the field.
  • Although immune to Floodgate Trap Hole, The Winged Dragon of Ra is not immune to Spell/Traps or Monster effects after it was Normal Summoned, therefore your opponent can take use a variety of plays to handle your monster, such as Enemy Controller, Super Rush Headlong, Mirror Wall, Mask of the Accursed etc.
  • The Life Points paid to increase this monster’s ATK and DEF is not optional, meaning you will be left with 100 Life Points and that is the mandatory result of this effect. This makes you very vulnerable to virtually any cards that burns your Life Points without going through Battle Phase. Hence it is important to have some healing cards as backup and only activate after you paid Life Points for your monster.

Speed Summon

These are the cards recommended to fill your field with enough monsters to Tribute summon the Winged Dragon of Ra. Ra’s Disciple is able to fill your field with another 2 Ra’s Disciples during the turn it was Normal Summoned. Bubonic Vermin is able to Special Summon other Bubonic Vermins from your deck, but you must protect the 1st Bubonic Vermin. Since it is flip summon and Special Summon performed by Bubonic Vermin, you can use Normal Summon on Ra. Cosmic Compass is able to generate 2 more tokens provided your opponent has at least 2 monsters on their field. You can also use Creature Seizure to force your opponents to trade 1 of their monsters to your field, by trading 1 of your tokens. Since Cosmic Compass was Normal Summoned, you need to protect all your monsters for that turn until you can Summon Ra on your next turn. Mecha Phantom Beast Hamstrat is able to generate 2 more tokens when it is flipped summoned. Worm Bait can be used if you control 1 face-up insect-type monster, which allows you to Special Summon 2 Worm tokens. Ra is a Level 10 monster so it is unaffected by Worm Bait’s effect of unable to Normal or Special Summon level 3 or 4 monsters the turn Worm Bait was activated.

Life Points Support

Since using Winged Dragon of Ra requires considerable amount of Life Points, these are some of the cards to help you regain Life Points faster.

Additional Support

Windstorm of Etaqua and Curse of Anubis generally functions to protect your monsters on the field for your Tribute Summon. Double Magical Arm Bind to take over 2 of your opponent’s face-up monsters and include them in your Tribute Summon instead, potentially making their field open for a direct attack. Different Dimension Capsule to place your Winged Dragon of Ra from deck to your banished zone face-down, and add it to your hand during your 2nd Standby Phase after this card was activated.

Future Support

Currently it is unknown whether Konami will release this support card for Winged Dragon of Ra, but it is used by game AI therefore included in Future Support Section.

Usually you don't need using it's effect to convert LP to ATK, so you can nuke opponent's monster.
And for farming, it's really useful to reach 10k atk more faster or even bother to recover LP.

P.S.A

You can now unlock Marik at the Gate. When you've unlocked him you need to duel yami yugi 1 time and you unlock RA (special mission at the bottom of the list)

So Yami Marik is at the gate, but for those of us who missed the first 2 events still can't unlock him and Winged Dragon of Ra? Tnx Konami, I really appreciate how equally you treat all your playerbase

My bad, apparently all the info on how to unlock him and Ra is inside duel links and not posted on this website.

good for collection, prism tally, and as finisher in PVE.
I would never play it in any competitive match as it has no protection at all after it is summoned ... not even on the turn it is summoned. utter failure compare to the original animation version.

Let's see based on this card and it's effects the victory points will be
--
Divine Summon - 1000 Points ( just for getting on the field)
LP on brink - 1000 Points ( effect built into card drains all but 100LP )

over 9999 damage - 3000 (possible to get 9999+ damage yep either LP or Marik skill)
Win a duel - 2000

So a 7000 point win without anything more then a skill or some LP increasing cards.

Do the union attack, gravekeeper vassel and pin that last 1000 points for effect damage.

But you know its a failure of a card.

Are you kidding me...? It should be better if you remove the God Cards...!!! They're useless. The All mighty Slifer, Normal Summon-> Enemy Controler -> GG....!!! Pls Fix.. :(

God cards are better used as a finisher, because of the lack of immunity compared to the anime version.

Your opponent using E-Con means:
1. You didn't use it as a finisher.
2. You didn't clear your opponent's backrow, which is a bigger sin actually, than 1.
