As players begin to open copies of Ten Thousand Dragon the question becomes: "What do I actually do with this card?" This week, Sam has you covered with his new spin on a classic deck: Ten Thousand Dragon Dino!  Dinosaurs are a hugely popular strategy that can quickly overwhelm your opponent with a single Ultimate Conductor Tyranno, but they don't always have the power to push all the damage needed to OTK.

That's where our pal Ten Thousand Dragon comes in, to make sure your opponent's left with no options and no Life Points. To see how this deck can pull off a Turn 1 that gives you Ten Thousand Dragon and Ultimate Conductor Tyranno, check out the video and witness the awesome power of Dragon Dinosaurs!

Dinosaurs are typically polarizing: some players love the deck while others stick to their Eldlich the Golden Lord, but this is a Dino build anyone would take for a spin! Flooding the board to set up Link Summons can trick your opponent into a different line of play - always advantageous to you - and you can save the Double Evolution Pill for when they've expended all of their negates. But the best part of this deck is that it's the ultimate flex with enough high rarity cards to dazzle any opponent. Check out the decklist below and see if you've got the courage it takes to play with Ten Thousand Dragon.
