Dragonic Overlord the End is an iconic unit from Cardfight!! Vanguard. The mighty dragon from Kagero enters the D-Standard Format! The signature ability of this legendary unit is standing himself for an additional battle! The might flames from Dragonic Overlord the End spells the end for the opposition.
Dragonic Overlord the End is the second version of Dragonic Overlord in the D-Standard Format. Like his predecessor, he has the ability of Persona ride. He is also a vanguard with the ability to attack twice in a turn.
The first ability is the key to the card’s consistency and success. Dragonic Overlord the End does not decrease his drive checks if Dragonic Overlord is in the soul. You maintain the same number of cards and you do not lose an advantage in exchange for a second attack.
In addition, Dragonic Overlord the End gains 5,000 power if Dragonic Overlord is in the soul. The additional power creates a strong offense for multiple attacks. Therefore, Dragonic Overlord the End has 18,000 power and his power becomes 28,000 when you persona ride a copy of himself!
Furthermore, the additional power puts more pressure on the opponent. Dragonic Overlord the End forces an opponent to use many cards for defense if he or she does not have a perfect guard. Two triggers add 20,000 power to your vanguard. An opponent must take triggers in account when they defend their vanguard.
Therefore, the best strategy is riding Dragonic Overlord for your first vanguard. It sets you up for success. Dragonic Overlord the End maintains twin drive, and he constantly pressures the opponent.
Vanguards with multiple attacks put pressure on the opponent, and Dragonic Overlord the End (D Series) stands himself for a second battle. Two attacks from a vanguard are difficult to block. You have many drive checks and each attack weakens the opponent’s resources.
The second ability puts a lot of momentum in your favor. Dragonic Overlord the End has a second chance to deal damage with the chance to win the game. The additional drive check increases your odds of a trigger, and a single trigger boosts your offense.
However, Dragonic Overlord the End only has one drive check without Dragonic Overlord in the soul. The second ability weakens your hand. It presents a disadvantage because you must discard two cards for the ability’s cost and you only gain one card from the second drive check.
Dragonic Overlord the End has a lot of good support in the D-Standard format. You want to play Dragonic Overlord with this card because he needs his original version. The support for the archetype complement his strategy of multiple attacks.
Dragonic Overlord the End and Dragon Deity King of Resurgence, Dragveda are a fantastic duo. They strike fear in opponents during battle. Dragon Deity King of Resurgence, Dragveda stands your vanguard without a cost. Therefore, Dragonic Overlord the End would have three attacks with the overtrigger!
Embodiment of Armor, Bahr (D Series) is a complementary piece for Dragonic Overlord the End. Embodiment of Armor, Bahr gains 5,000 power when your vanguard hits the opponent. Due to this ability, you have a rear-guard with good offense. The additional power strengthens this rear-guard, and he becomes a booster with 13,000 power. Embodiment of Armor, Bahr may also have 23,000 power when you persona ride Dragonic Overlord the End on the same turn.

This version of Dragonic Overlord the End is not a good fit in the premium format. His only value is his name for the archetype of Overlord. His abilities are very slow in this format and they do not provide a strong advantage. In addition, persona ride is not a good mechanic for the premium format because it is too slow and is a poor use of resources.
Dragonic Overlord the End (V Series) is the best version of Dragonic Overlord the End in the premium format. This version has the Imaginary Gift: Force. In addition, Dragonic Overlord the End (V Series) has an amazing synergy with Dragonic Overlord “The X” (V Series). Dragonic Overlord the End (D Series) does not offer the same value as Dragonic Overlord the End (V Series).

All in all, Dragonic Overlord the End is a respectable card for the D-Standard Format. He personifies the original card with his abilities. I recommend playing four copies of Dragonic Overlord the End in your deck in the D-Standard format. The end is never ending with his multiple attacks!
