Other cards you control cannot be destroyed by your opponent’s card effects. You can only use each of the following effects of “Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon” once per turn, and can only activate them while “Blue-Eyes White Dragon” is on your field or in your GY. If a card(s) on the field is destroyed by battle or card effect: You can Special Summon this card from your GY (if it was there when the card was destroyed) or hand (even if not). At the start of the Damage Step, if this card battles: You can target 1 card your opponent controls; return it to the hand.

Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon is a powerful dragon with amazing artwork. Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon is an effective monster for Blue-Eyes. This monster has 3,000 ATK and 0 DEF. This monster also has three powerful effects.

Inspiration:

Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon is not a card in the original series. Seto Kaiba flies a jet with a similar design. It has a model with the design of a Blue-Eyes White Dragon.

First Effect:

Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon offers protection for your other cards. The first effect does not allow the opponent to destroy your other cards with effects. Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon protects your monsters, spells, and traps on the field. The deck consistently functions without any interference from the opponent.

Furthermore, the protection is not limited to Blue-Eyes. Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon provides protection to cards regardless of their archetype. This is a nice effect, and you can avoid many of your opponent’s effects.

However, Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon’s effect does not apply to itself, and an opponent can destroy it with an effect. This monster is unable to protect itself. This limitation balances the card for fairness.

Second Effect:

Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon requires a Blue-Eyes White Dragon in your graveyard or on your field to activate its third and fourth effects. The setup for the card will require a few resources from the duel, and the conditions will be set after a few turns during a game. It is a secondary monster due to the time of this effect.

Furthermore, you can easily send a Blue-Eyes White Dragon to the graveyard. Foolish Burial is the most obvious card for support. Foolish Burial may send a Blue-Eyes White Dragon from the deck to the graveyard. Then, the conditions for the third and fourth effect are set in place.

Third Effect:

Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon special summons itself from the graveyard or your hand after an effect destroys one of your cards. You instantly gain a powerful monster with a high ATK and effective abilities. It is a powerful counter against an opponent after he or she destroys one of your cards with an effect from a card such as Dark Hole.

Furthermore, many cards in Yu-Gi-Oh! have effects to destroy other cards. You are very likely to activate Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon’s third effect. Your opponent can destroy one of your cards to trigger the conditions for the special summon.

The effect to special summon itself provides huge value to this monster. You do not need to tribute monsters or pay a cost for Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon. You are not losing any resources to play this monster, and you may continue to use your current resources on the field.

Fourth Effect:

The final effect of Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon is its best ability. He returns an opponent’s card from the field to the opponent’s hand. Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon establishes control of the field. This effect counters the opponent’s strategy and removes their cards from the field.

Furthermore, this effect is a great tactic against monsters from the extra deck. Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon return those monsters to the opponent’s extra deck because they cannot be in the hand. An opponent must spend many resources to return those cards to the field.

Support:

Konami loves creating new cards with good effects for Blue-Eyes. Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon has a large library of support. This effect monster is a perfect fit in the archetype and its current support.

One of the best support for Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon is The White Stone of Ancients. The White Stone of Ancients special summons one Blue-Eyes from the deck, and you may special Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon with this effect. It is an easy and simple combo to place this powerful card on the field.

Card Rating:

Overall, Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon is a great card for support of Blue-Eyes. I recommend playing one to two copies of Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon. it complements the deck’s strategy with its effects. Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon can special summon itself and protect your important cards on the field. Its impressive offense and protection make it to be a great addition to the archetype.
