Vampire Lord works against

Vampire Lord can be special-summoned from the Graveyard when it is destroyed by the effects of cards. Use the effect to deal with cards like below.

Order to Charge

Commonly used in several meta decks, this card is what makes normal monsters quite strong and versatile, but using it against Vampire Lord will only stop it for 1 turn.


If your opponents uses Michizure, you can destroy your opponent's monster using your other monster aside from Vampire Lord. Activating Michizure will leave them with targeting either Vampire Lord, that can be special summoned next turn, or your other monster, allowing your Vampire Lord to attack.

Yomi Ship

An easy monster removal card that sometimes players use, often in Mako decks. If you see a Mako player setting this, there's a pretty good chance it might be Yomi Ship, so make sure you use Vampire Lord to attack first.

It would still be negated.
Another of Kaiba's epic signature cards.
Started using this against sylvan. It is actually decently affective
Free foolish burial to your opponent is an advantage somehow?

That's assuming your opponent declared monster.

It's always better to declare Spell or Trap to remove pesky backrow cards.
this card has an animation when played by kaiba its sick wish i had 3 copies lol i only have the 1 though RIP
This card is utter trash, not sure why is it even UR... and of course i end up with 3 copies of this useless crap.

1 tribute for only 2000atk, low defense and his effect does not cover his terribly low stats... I know this card was a thing in tcg old times but duel links is another format here we do not have trap hole, fisure, smashing ground, rageki, dark hole,torrential, mirror force, exiled force,ring of destruction... etc. Just frustrated i ended up really fast with 3 of this instead of gozuki,lotus or wyv

No way this is worth a UR spot in the box. How would u ever land an attack with this garbage card. It's basically a downgraded mefist. And mefist has penetration damage to use his effect. U gotta be playing a really crap opponent to gain board advantage with this.

Anti magic Arrows
Honestly I wish his defense was lower (under 1200), then I’d go for 3 copies
oh noooo

Is it just me or are the Pros/Cons sections in this site always bullshit?
with 48 packs left the remaining cards are 2 UR (vampire lord and dark paladin) and 2 SR (dark general freed and buster blader swordmaster)
should i reset or wait till i get vampire and paladin (are they worth it)
this is my first box so i don't have any copy of vampire lord or dark paladin
thanks for reading and hopefully answering

if you want to run red eyes zombies go for your wyverns and gozuki now, if you want some more fun/useful cards dark paladin is amazing for farming super Joey and other dragon users + vampire lord is a really cool card imo. I'd wait
