Well it’s draft day and we are proud to announce that with our 1st overall pick we have selected Dreadnought Dunker to join the Ultra Athletes! Or so the picture would lead you to believe. It would’ve been more accurate to depict Midfielder since 9/10 times you’ll be using this for Midfielder.
Special Summon 1 “U.A.” monster from your Deck, but its effects are negated, also it cannot be used as Synchro or Xyz Material for a Summon. Then you lose LP equal to the Level of the monster you Special Summoned by this effect x 300. You can only activate 1 “U.A. Signing Deal” per turn.
So this will potentially let you special anything out of your deck. Sounds broken, but it is on a very tight leash.
You lose your effects, you’re paying life points, it can’t be synchro’d or xyz’d, and it’s only once per turn. Most of the time you will use this to pivot off the field for something in hand. And those life points get expensive – take a look
- Midfielder – 1200
- Perfect Ace/Mighty Slugger – 1500
- Goalkeeper/Rival Rebounder – 1800
- Blockbacker/Dreadnought Dunker – 2100
- Playmaker – 2400
So most of the time you’re looking for Midfielder but in a pinch there are other options. But for all its draw backs, it serves one vital purpose, getting Midfielder on the board to start plays. This card I believe is a staple 2 in nearly any U.A. build that leans pure. Certainly not great, would have been nice as a quick play so you could snap it on their turn to boost your field or sneak in a pivot set up before your actual turn starts.
But for what it was meant to do – it’s good. Although for all the draw backs it could do to throw in a “cannot be destroyed or targeted by your opponent’s card effects”. Because there’s nothing worse than shelling out those precious LP just to get trolled with a Solemn or Bottomless..
