Dark Desertapir

Wikipedia Link:

You guys are probably wondering why am I discussing this? Well, for starters, I think it's an interesting tech card inside a Beast Deck. Now, let's talk about the Pros and Cons.


  • Not really a good card on it's own, so it can't really stay on the field for more than a turn or so.
It makes you consider making a Beast Deck yourself since some players depend on the Graveyard for support. For competitive use, I suggest to side it, however, if you figure out a way to use the effect, then by all means, go with it. Personally, I think it's times like these, where Soul Release is viable.

Anyway, enjoy! Feel free to comment if I made a mistake or if you want to discuss something further.


  1. Dark Desertapir misses the timing, as evidenced by its "When... you can..." wording, so being removed from play for the effects of Yellow Baboon, Bazoo, or other cards that remove from play as a cost will not trigger its effect.

  2. Fixed the post.

    There's still other ways to use the effect, I mean, some players depend on the Graveyard, so cards like Dimensional Fissure, Macro Cosmos, and Soul Release might be seeing some play.

    At least, that's how I see it working well as.
