A ferocious dragon with a deadly attack.
Joey Wheeler’s signature card is the Red-Eyes Black Dragon. It is rivals the Blue-Eyes White Dragon. Red-Eyes Black Dragon represents Joey’s potential, and Blue-Eyes White Dragon symbolizes Kaiba’s strength. The archetype has grown over the years to compete with its rival. Red-Eyes Black Dragon has aligned itself with the legendary dragon, and has become a zombie.
Red-Eyes Black Dragon does not look impressive on paper. It suffers from the game becoming more advance with better cards. Red-Eyes Black Dragon requires a lot of support because it is a Normal monster. Its stats are decent, but it cannot do anything special by itself. Surround it with cards that support Red-Eyes monsters.
Furthermore, the most effective way to play Red-Eyes Black Dragon is to play cards to special summon it to the field, and special summon stronger versions of the fierce dragon. Black Dragon’s Chick quickly special summons Red-Eyes Black Dragon to the field. The little chick grows to become Red-Eyes Black Dragon. Its effect is one of the best methods to special summon Red-Eyes Black Dragon. Then, your fully grown dragon is ready to duel.

There is also a large library of Fusion Monsters for Red-Eyes Black Dragon. I recommend playing Red-Eyes Fusion instead of Polymerization. Red-Eyes Fusion can Fusion Summon any Red-Eyes monsters from the Extra deck with cards from your deck, field, or hand. You only need to play this card to Fusion Summon! Then, you can fuse your Red-Eyes Black Dragon with another monster to create a more powerful monster. You are now dueling like champion!

However, Red-Eyes Black Dragon is not a good card to justify it in a competitive Red-Eyes deck. It is a very slow card to play. Then, it does not have an effect to give you an advantage as it is unable to protect itself. Retrained versions of Red-Eyes Black Dragon are better cards. Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon and Red-Eyes Black Flare Dragon are superior cards.
Overall, Red-Eyes Black Dragon has never been a good card on its own. Red-Eyes Black Dragon is just a fun card to play for casual decks. I recommend playing retrained versions of it. These cards have strong effects, and give you a better chance at winning duels. Then, you will be able to experience the true potential of a Red-Eyes deck.
