Card Tips
  • You can send Totem Dragon to the graveyard where it can activate its special summon effect.
  • You can send Red-Eyes B. Dragon or any other Red-Eyes monster to the graveyard to special summon with Red-Eyes Spirit.
    • In the same method, send Red-Eyes Wyvern to the graveyard to later use its effect on a fallen Red-Eyes.
  • Better alternative to Spirit-Ryu as it keeps its ATK gain, has higher base stats, and can special summon monsters.
