- Use Dragons against Mono-Entropy only as the final shot. Antimatters are a very strong counter.
- Use 2-4 Dragons in traditional heavy-pillar fire-decks, or 5-6 in decks with Immolation/Cremation.
- Save quantum for 2-3 Fire Bolts/Fire Lances and shoot them at your opponent before you play the Dragon(s) for the final hit.
The Crimson Dragon is the Dragon with the strongest attack, but also the one with the lowest defense. That makes him a glass cannon. But, which fire deck needs defense?
With 12/3 or 15/2 upgraded the dragon has the most attack and the worst defense. It works perfectly in "traditional" fire decks, which use 2-4 of the Dragons as their only creatures. They often play with many Pillars/Towers so you should have the required fire-quantum fast. At the later stages of the game, you can use Dragons as additional "surprises"; for example, playing 2-3 Fire Bolts/Fire Lances on your opponent followed by a Dragon or two. The Dragon's high attack makes them perfect for fast damage and damage-reducing shields don't work as well. You need 10/12 fire quanta for playing the Dragon, so it can be a nice combo with Immolation/Cremation (and Minor Phoenix) and Brimstone Eaters. It's very nice in a deck with Fire Bolts/Fire Lances and Fahrenheits, since you'll need many Pillars/Towers in such decks to make them efficient.
Crimson Dragon embodies the theme of the Fire Element. It has the highest attack power in the game, but will die to almost any damage spell.
