Over the past weeks, the price of Beast-Eyes Pendulum Dragon has been on a steady rise from a mere ¥500 to over ¥2200. Spoilers of the upcoming set, Clash of Rebellions, revealed various Red-Eyes cards, enabling a new combo with Beast-Eyes Pendulum Dragon.

Here is a look at the combo.

Conclusion

 

This two-card combo requires 3 turns to execute, but result in a Number 95: Galaxy-Eyes Dark Matter Dragon and a Red-Eyes Flare Metal Dragon (or any other Rank 7 Xyz monster). However the combo is based on spoiler text, and may be subjected to changes before the actual release.

Until the actual release of Clash of Rebellions on the 25th April 2015, we can only hope for Red-Eyes Dark Matter to become a thing.

  1. Extremely situational, as Scapegoat isn’t worth anything at all in the Deck. It’s garbage 9/10 times, and to top it off, this combo is slow.

    Yes, it’s cool but it’s not worth it.

    • I agree that this deck is rather unlikely to be top tier competitive, especially considering that even Dark Matter Dragon Ruler’s performance was mediocre.

      Perhaps a Kinka-byo build would be much more consistent in bringing out Beast-Eyes Pendulum Dragon. Nonetheless I’m quite intrigued by what else Clash of Rebellions will bring us.

    • Yeah, I’ve seen a couple builds teching Kinka to achieve the same instant Beast-Eyes method, but it can’t do the double Beast-Eyes into Dark Matter combo here.

      It looks inconsistent and kinda weird, but I’d try it out just to see if it’s at all workable. With Scapegoat at 3, it’s at least a chainable wall for a turn if nothing else.
