Is this card useful for dueling?
Probably not a lot, honestly. But if you ever pull this, you should win the duel out of sheer awesome factor.
...that being said, did you know that it's actually easier to Summon this than it is to Summon Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon? Thanks to Fusion substitutes and the cards which search Ritual Monsters, grabbing the needed stuff to fuse this guy is easy.
The most effective way to Summon this card is in a dedicated Deck with a HERO engine splashed. That way, you can use Polymerization, Miracle Fusion and Dragon's Mirror to fuse stuff, while you search your pieces with King of the Swamp, E - Emergency Call and Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands. Black Luster Soldier can feed E-HERO Gaia and Master Knight, while King of the Swamp can feed Master Knight or Zero. Manju and Alius make The Shining, while Stratos makes Tornado. You can do silly stuff like Future Fusion for Gaia, then toss KotS to grab Poly, then Dragon's Mirror into Master Knight!
Anyways. Probably not the best card ever in terms of playability, but making a Deck around it is not only possible, but really fun as well.
Traditional: 0/10 The only Fusions here come through Metamorphosis or Magical Scientist.
Advanced: 0/10 on its own, 8/10 in a dedicated build centered around it. It doesn't do anything special, but being an easy-to-summon 5000 beater should count for something xD Yet it only gets an 8 because the splashed HERO Fusions are still better.
Art: 11/10 BEUD is awesome, but this is even MORE awesome. Definitely my favorite of them all.
