First Effect:

The name of Firewall Dragon reflects the card’s first effect. Firewall Dragon returns monsters on the field and graveyard to a player’s hand as the number of monsters co-linked to the card. The effect controls the field for your advantage. Due to the effect being a quick effect, you may activate this effect during either player’s turn.

The best option is returning the opponent’s monster from the field to his or her hand. The opponent would need to spend resources to summon the monster again. You may have the opportunity to declare direct attacks to deal massive damage. You have a great opportunity to seal the deal to win the game.

Furthermore, Firewall Dragon neutralizes an opponent’s normal summon. He returns the opposing monster to opponent’s hand. Firewall Dragon provides an effective strategy for shutting down the opponents. You maintain the advantage with control of the field.

Second Effect:

Firewall Dragon special summons a monster from your hand if a monster it points to is destroyed or sent to the graveyard. The effect either helps you gain an advantage or maintain your advantage on the field. You would simply replace one of your monsters. In the scenario of an opponent’s monster being destroyed, then your field gains an additional monster.
