Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Dictator of D.

[Spellcaster/Effect]

ATK/1,200 DEF/1,100

While you control a “Blue-Eyes” monster, you choose the attack targets for your opponent’s attacks. You can only use each of the following effects of “Dictator of D.” once per turn. You can send 1 “Blue-Eyes White Dragon” from your hand or Deck to the GY; Special Summon this card from your hand. You can discard 1 “Blue-Eyes White Dragon”, or 1 card that mentions it, then target 1 “Blue-Eyes” monster in your GY; Special Summon it.

Dictator of D. is another version of Lord of D. with new effects. This spellcaster supports Blue-Eyes. This spellcaster has 1,200 ATK and 1,100 DEF. His useful effects compensate his low stats on offense and defense. Dictator of D. is a useful monster for Blue-Eyes.

First Effect:

Dictator of D. dictates the opponent’s offense, and this pun was intended! Dictator of D. picks the opponent’s target when he or she declares an attack if you control a Blue-Eyes monster. It is an useful effect for turning the tables in battle. The effect forces the opponent to attack your strongest monster and this may lead to your monster winning the battle!

Furthermore, this effect provides protection for Dictator of D.. The Dictator of D. has low ATK and he would be the opponent’s prime target due to his effects. This effect allows you to control the flow of the game. You may force the opponent to target a monster such as Blue-Eyes White Dragon instead of Dictator of D.

Second Effect:

Dictator of D. special summons himself to the field. You must send a Blue-Eyes White Dragon from your hand or deck to the graveyard. This useful effect sets up the ability to use this spellcaster’s other effects. You gain those effects when he is on the field.

Furthermore, this effect sets up cards such as Ultimate Fusion. These cards use Blue-Eyes White Dragon in the graveyard for their effects. You can perform a fusion summon with Ultimate Fusion with the same Blue-Eyes White Dragon that you discard for Dictator of D.’s second effect.

Third Effect:

In addition, Dictator of D. has the ability to special summon a Blue-Eyes from the graveyard. This effect requires you to discard a Blue-Eyes White Dragon or a card that mentions Blue-Eyes White Dragon to the graveyard. It is a fantastic effect for getting a monster on the field. You consistently have a Blue-Eyes on the field for your deck’s strategy.

Furthermore, Dictator of D. smoothly fits in decks with Blue-Eyes because this effect provides consistency. Every type of deck in the archetype has targets for this effect. Dictator of D. may special summon monsters such as Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon.

For example, Dictator of D. and Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon have amazing synergy. Both cards complement each other. Dictator of D. may special summon Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon with this effect. In addition, Blue-Eyes Jet Dragon protects Dictator of D. from the opponent’s effects. You gain a powerful dragon with a high ATK and amazing effects.
