1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner DARK monsters
You can only use the (2) effect of "Hydreigon the Brutal Destroyer" once while it is face-up on the field.
(1) If this card destroys a monster by battle, it can make a second attack in a row.
(2) During either player's turn, if a monster effect is activated: You can negate the effect of that card.
- 2nd effect altered to be once while it's face-up on the field. (1.1)
Much like the previous stuff I did in the past, Hydreigon's effects are themed after actual sets that it runs in competition.
So yeah, Pokemon designed for the metagame.
Material-wise, made it require DARK non-Tuners for flavor purposes, so you can't splash Hydra into any Deck you please.
It's Level 7 though, as per some of my flavor notes from last time.
First one is themed after its Pokedex entry about it destroying everything.
Initially, I wanted to give it free double attacks [that don't require a monster to be destroyed], but considering this card's 2600 ATK, I was not keen on making this a 5.2k sweeper with minimal prior damage.
Second effect is themed off of Taunt, which in this case, I translated that to negation.
In-game, Taunt simply stops the opponent from activating status moves (or effects in this situation).
Unlike most negation stuff, I opted to not destroy the card it negated.
It is intended to stop floaters (see BAs, Clownblade [if still relevant] and others that trigger in the Graveyard) and hand traps (i.e. Yuki Usagi, Veiler, etc).
In essence, it's sort of like Divine Wrath except it also hits the Graveyard/hand also.
Originally was negation of card activations [including Scales], but I deemed that to be too powerful, even with a hard OPT.
I think double attacking and negation should be enough for Hydreigon (or rather, lack of viable effects that incorporate its moveset).
Something related to its ability might've been nice, but I don't know what that would've been: immunity to Trap Cards or something?

(There was another image I wanted to use, but didn't turn out too well in the cardmaker)
Reps will be given for helpful reviews.
