Infernity Doom Dragon? I don't see konami giving us that cause of its burn effect.

Burn effect?
1. It inflicts only half ATK.
2. This card cannot attack during the same turn you activate its effect.
3. You can only activate its effect if you have no cards in your hand.

Also, we have that E-Hero fusion that inflicts full ATK as damage, yet nobody use it.

Why? Because Lava Golem is easier to use, and summoning it alone already mess with your opponent's resource.

With Shining Flare Wingman and Infernity Doom Dragon, you have to use your own resource.

I say Lava Golem is the more broken one.

"most likely won't have any good monster left to attack with."
"This card cannot attack during the same turn you activate its effect"
" You can only activate its effect if you have no cards in your hand."

Some genius will show us a way to work around those disadvantages. Besides, at this moment, we don't know whether Infernity will get useful support cards like Launcher (or even better cards).

In this video, the video owner activated the effect of Infernity Doom Dragon and attacked with it in the same turn, resulting an OTK.

Maybe it's not easy to do, but see, it is possible.
I loved this character, he plays the harmonica in the taunt "......."
Just checked the level up rewards. Komoney is fkn 🔥ed, they refuse to give us a second archer (I can agree with 1 barrier and yes, we get a copy of barrier for free) and instead give us 2 more infernity break and necromancer which means we have 4 necromancer and break for no reason...

Archer’s pretty busted so I agree with cap at 1 for that card but giving us a useless copy of necromancer and break makes me mad, they could’ve given us 2 more infernity avenger or even guardian, but I see komoney has now stooped this low in duel links

Still better rewards than most of the time, so they don't 🔥ed up that big.
I'm thinking his Ace is gonna be a Skill and a Box UR, same as how they did for the Signers and Leo.

Yes but actually no.
I’ll just say it we didn’t need a 4th copy of necromancer that’s just lazy konami we could have used a second archer
"i was faster" skill is dangerous with stein + ojama king

But the recovery effect only works to the player that got the first turn right?

That doesn't matter. If you're not going first, then you can't perform that gimmick anyway.
Day 809 of "Where's Atticus?" Red-Eyes Darkness Dragon continues to search for answers as to why Atticus has yet to make his Duel Links appearance. Meanwhile, Atticus remains perched on the high cliff overlooking the seas surrounding Duel Academy, lost in melancholic brooding over whether or not his plot significance in GX matters to Konami or not...

Easier to get ANOTHER Yugi (the 4th one) than Atticus. Konami likes Yugi like Bandai likes Goku.

in this point of the game darkness dragon is useless. i will just hope for him bringing useful red-eyes skills, maybe it would make konami buff joey dsod red-eyes skills to be as good as blue-eyes ones from kaiba
Normal kalin used infernity destroyer, which used as his dark singer form. But its effect is so deadly, so I cant see us get it. I guess archfiend and archer won't be achievable too. Without them, launcher is a possible card to get.

Launcher is the most broken card in that deck. I highly doubt that we'll get it.

Lol new box has proven this comment wrong, not even a UR
If we can have Infernity Doom Dragon, why don't we have Hot Red Dragon Archfiend?
so excited about new infernity cards
