Its tribute brought about another X-Saber Airbellum and D.D Crazy Beast. Shifu declared attack with the 1st X-Saber Airbellum on Dark End Dragon but was blocked by the Necro Gardna Dennis buried earlier. The 2nd X-Saber Airbellum attacked and brought Dark End Dragon down.Dennis seems to be in trouble.Shifu tuned both X-Saber Airbellum with the 2 other non-tuners to bring out Natural Beast and Goyou Guardian, things seems to be working out well for him.
