First Effect:

Dragon Knight of Creation sends one level 7 or 8 dragon from your deck to the graveyard after he destroys an opponent’s monster in battle. This effect sets up plays with many cards that want dragons in your graveyard. You can those the effects of those cards to gain advantages.

For example, Arkbrave Dragon is a good target for Dragon Knight of Creation. Arkbrave Dragon from the graveyard special summons a level 7 or 8 dragon with a different name from your graveyard. You gain a strong monster from this combo.

The first effect of this monster requires a successful battle. An opponent can avoid this effect by activating an effect to protect his or her monster in battle. For example, an opponent can activate Mirror Force to destroy Dragon Knight of Creation. Therefore, you are unable to activate Dragon Knight of Creation’s first effect.

Dragon Knight of Creation special summons your strongest dragons to the field. You may discard a card and send Dragon Knight of Creation to the graveyard to special summon a level 7 or 8 dragon from your graveyard. This effect complements the first effect. It also provides an additional option for access to your powerful dragons.
