  1. For those who are not familiar with the concept of the deck:   Disaster Dragon is an Aggro Control deck that plays disruption strategies mixed with lockdown and high aggression to gain and maintain control of the board. It carries a lot of momentum and explosive power as the deck can consistently drop two or more monsters per turn without losing advantage and often times they will be big monsters. This is done through the use of the deck's backbone card, "Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon". This card is one of the most powerful dragons in the deck, outclassed only by a potential "White Night Dragon", or "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon". Red-Eyes' effect allows for the constant re-use of monsters from the Graveyard, as well as the ability to bypass the Normal Summoning limit and the requirements for Tributes that many decks suffer from. As a result, Disaster Dragon decks are packing some of the most destructive, highest ATK monsters in the present Metagame because they can bypass the tribute mechanic required to summon them.   Through the usage of cards such as "Koa'ki Meiru Drago", "Exploder Dragon" and "Light and Darkness Dragon" the deck is capable of shutting down and eliminating a majority of plays made by the current popular decks. The deck plays like a toolbox, with "Masked Dragon" working to recruit the dragons you need for tributes, Synchro Summon, Xyz Summon, monster removal, etc and cards like Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon and "Genesis Dragon" allowing you to reuse, manipulate, or trade dragons around. Cards such as "Foolish Burial", and "Dragon Ravine" allow you to dump dragons into your graveyard faster while also aiding in the deck's inherent synergy, but some dragons such as "Yamata Dragon" or "Light and Darkness Dragon" cannot be Special Summoned, thus they are unable to bypass their two-tribute requirement via "Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon" as most dragons would do. Instead, the deck utilizes "Totem Dragon", a self-recurring dragon that can act as two tributes in order to Tribute Summon a Dragon-type monster. Being a Dragon itself, Totem Dragon is a viable target to search with "Masked Dragon" or to dump with "Future Fusion". It can also be revived by Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon.   With the release of Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy, Disaster Dragon get another incredible supports in the form of Dragon Rulers, which have varied useful effects depending on their Attribute while also providing offensive boosts and fixing most issues that Disaster Dragon deck has ever since "Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon" is Limited in September 2012 Lists.     Monsters: 20   1x Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon 1x Light and Darkness Dragon 1x Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos 1x Tidal, Dragon Ruler of Waterfalls 1x Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms 1x Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders 3x Koa'ki Meiru Drago 2x Blizzard Dragon 3x Masked Dragon 1x Delta Flyer 1x Exploder Dragon 1x Totem Dragon 1x Eclipse Wyvern 1x Debris Dragon 1x Flamvell Guard   Spells: 10 3x Dragon Shrine 3x Mystical Space Typhoon 1x Gold Sarcophagus 2x Pot of Duality 1x Book of Moon   Traps: 10 1x Solemn Warning 1x Torrential Tribute 2x Raigeki Break 2x Skill Prisoner 2x Castle of Dragon Souls 2x Dragoncarnation   Extra: 15 1x Stardust Dragon 1x Stardust Spark Dragon 1x Scrap Dragon 1x Crimson Blader 1x Trident Dragion 1x Star Eater 1x Ancient Fairy Dragon 1x Black Rose Dragon 1x Queen Dragun Djinn 1x Lightning Chidori 1x Abyss Dweller 1x Number 101: Silent Honor Ark 1x Leviair the sea Dragon 1x Number 11: Big Eye 1x Mecha Phantom Beast Dracossack   The deck itself is quite consistent, it is able of controlling the pace of the game very fast through the use of your small dragons (Koa'ki Meiru Drago, Masked Dragon, Exploder Dragon) and big dragons (4 Dragon Rulers, REDMD, LaDD). Now that we have access to the dragon rulers, I feel like the deck is pretty good and can actually held its own againts the meta. Before anyone says that this particular deck is dead since the september 2012 list, I am just gonna say right now that this deck is far from dead. As long as Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon is not banned, the deck itself will stay alive and will keep evolving as format changes and as more dragon support are being potentially released.   People seem to forget that this deck greatess strenght is: Adaptabilty and the fact that it can evolve through formats as Disaster dragons has alot of variants to play from. In conclusion, as long as players such as Richard Clarke (The Deck's Creator) and other veteran Disaster Dragon players who loved the deck since its beginning still contributes into this deck, the deck would truly not ''die''.
