Remember those days when you open with only Tefnuit/Eset with Nebthet and thought to yourself “Fuck My Life”. Well, many sought to reduce their chances of getting self-inflicted cancer in Hieratics by adding in Curse of Dragon into the equation. It worked for some people but the rest saw it as another form of cancer (playing two vanillas is bad enough seriously.) Probably the only reason I am excited with Shadow Specters is because they have a new Level 6 vanilla dragon Tuner in the set (yes, I am talking about Labradorite Dragon!) I have now found my solution to opening only with Eset/Tefnuit and Nebthet thanks to the existence of Labradorite Dragon and Celestial Dragon.
A quick analysis on this new vanilla, it is a Level 6 making it compatible with Hieratics for OTK combos and whatnot. Labradorite is also a DARK which is an added bonus if you are looking to run Chaos Monsters in the bunch. This card being a Tuner is the main point since it will be bringing more fun and love in Hieratics possibly spreading more joyous cancer to the community. In all honesty, this card would suck if it wasn’t for the availability of Celestial Dragon. It has zero attack points so you can't rely on Labradorite to perform the usual 3-Cards-OTK combo (Atumus+M7) which Wattaildragon does and at the very least Emerald Dragon comes with 2400 ATK. A side note, I might even consider constructing a build with Black Luster Soldier-Envoy of the Twilight in it (3000 ATK free massacre.) I am definitely going to be experimenting with new cards from Shadow Specters (mainly Labradorite Dragon and Kiganjo) and maybe come up with a good enough build to run when September Format arrives. Hopefully the Dragon Rulers and Prophecy bullshit ends while the Green Day dude continues to sleep. Hieratics is hardly a reliable competitive deck anymore but who knows maybe they can make a comeback with creativity (Verz Ophion still needs to go to Hell though.) So, I am off to once again mess around with my favourite deck. Thank you for dropping by!
