Card Review: Dark Armed Dragon

It really has been awhile since I've done reviews... see Colin so hardworking, I slacking..
I know reviewing this card is alittle late... but anyways...

Dark Arm Dragon

[Dark Armed Dragon]
Attribute: Dark
Type: Dragon
Effect Monster
Level: 7 stars
Atk 2800/Def 1000
Effect: This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by having exactly 3 Dark Attribute Monsters in your graveyard. You can remove away from the game 1 Dark Attribute Monster in your graveyard to destroy 1 card on the field.

Its time to talk about the gayest card in our current gameplay! Dark Armed Dragon!
The very good thing about this card is that its a free summon.

The only cost is to have strictly only 3 dark type monsters in the graveyard which can be easily done with the current Destiny variant decks and many others which has dark monsters as a majority. There are always Pot of Avarices, The Transmigration Prophecy to ensure not too much Dark types in the grave while [D.D Crow], [Destiny Heroes], [Foolish Burial], [Knight Of The End] and the upcoming UDE only [Dark Grepher] can fill it up with the right amount of Dark types!
A free special summoned 2800 Beatstick is BIG and PAINFUL!

The second effect of this card is what makes it too gay. Destroying many cards at a go is what the current game lacks (well, except for [Lightning Rortex], [Heavy Storm] and etc.) and this is one of the cards that is rather versitile as it allows the user to destroy ANY 1 card on the field just by removing 1 dark type in the grave. And remember, you'd probably have 3 dark types in the grave for the cost to summon this monster out already. Meaning you can destroy at least 3 cards on the field. If you need to refill the grave for more 'bullets' theres always [Burial from a Different Dimension] to help reuse your out of game dark types!
Theres always the [Magician Of Black Chaos]+ [D.D.R] + [Arms Hole] combo too (remember that recycling combo picture afew posts ago?). By removing MOBC with Dark Armed Dragon, not only you can start the above combo, but you also destroy a card on the field!

Overall I think this card deserves to be restricted to 1. Konami pls do something about it!
