Since both this and Ex-Tyrannon are Purple/Green, I wonder what the mega will be since there seems to be an evolution chain here.

I would guess Deathmon, but he's not even remotely dragon themed.

Sneaky Ex-Tyrannomon is spying on DarkTyrannomon. I'm glad Koki's use of green and purple reminds you what colors the card is but it evokes such an odd mood; is it supposed to be uneasiness?

As always, koki has a really distinct art style.

Also nice to see that DarkTyrannomon's hands are properly drawn with 3 claws. It's funny how the stylistic perspective of its official artwork can result in DarkTyrannomon losing a claw, to the point that it's become the predominant interpretation. I think the last recent 3-clawed depiction was the DarkTyrannomon card drawn by Watanabe (unless you count its sprite in the Mad Black Roar Dim).

I feel like like the inherited is shit. Kogamon is also green/purple for 2 and has retaliation so kogamon is a better card.

I see, Digimon artists are still confused whether DarkTyrannomon has 3 claws or just 2 on it's arms.

I wouldn't say confused, there's just always been two variations of DarkTyrannomon, both being valid (going back to old cards, toys, and game models, you'll see a mix of both variations). Similar to Greymon sometimes having a back-toe, or Agumon having 4 fingers. The difference being those mutations aren't used anymore for Agumon and Greymon. However, with DarkTyrannomon we know it's meant to have two valid designs with its claw structure. Look at DarkTyrannomon X, one hand has 2 claws and the other has 3, a nod to how DarkTyrannomon is often seen with either mutation.

What you're talking about is how the original designs of those Digimon have been altered or replaced due to misinterpretations becoming more, if not just as, accepted over the original intentions.
Typically, the anime interpretations (in the case of Agumon and Greymon) end up taking priority, because the animes are usually the most popular form of Digimon media (thus becoming the most popular interpretations).

Likewise, with DarkTyrannomon, it was originally meant to have 3 claws. It's just that the claws are arranged in a Y-pattern, so with DarkTyrannomon's hands so low to the ground in its official artwork, only the two upper claws are really visible (you can barely see the tip of the third claw). This ended up being interpreted as 2 claws, especially in DarkTyrannomon's anime appearances.

Another example is WereGarurumon's tail. The tail is an original part of the design, but because the Adventure interpretation excluded the tail, the tail-less design has become fairly prominent. However, unlike Agumon and Greymon, the tail-less design hasn't become overwhelmingly dominant, with the tailed design still popping up fairly often even to this day.
Even recently, Watanabe himself has been inconsistent between including or excluding the tail (the artwork for the Digimon Adventure: gummies had a tail, while the BT7-026 and the P-073 cards didn't have tails).

I understand the history, but this doesn't make the two-clawed design invalid, nor does it make the three-clawed design the "correct". Both are valid and still used today, and given X's concept, Bandai is fully aware that there's two different designs.

When an artist draws DarkTyrannomon with two claws and then I see comments saying the artist is "confused", or "not drawing it correctly" (which is common), it just feels like disingenuous criticism to me. Regardless of the origin, 2-clawed DarkTyrannomon exists and is just as valid.

I wasn't saying that the two-clawed design is invalid. I'm saying that it wasn't intended that way at the beginning. Intention and validation are separate distinct concepts.

Also, the X-Antibody designs are not meant to be representative of the viewpoint of Bandai itself. They're meant to be re-interpretations of the original Digimon by the respective artists that designed each X-Antibody. It only represents that specific artist's viewpoint (albeit an officially validated viewpoint).

Edit: Looking closely, DarkTyrannomon X doesn't even have a two-clawed hand. There's a third claw that's visible on the bottom (it's not a toe-claw, unless DarkTyrannomon has an enormous gap between its toes; it's not angled like a toe either).

I realize your points weren't about validity, but you responded to my post about validity with commentary on intention/origin. My next comment is that intention/origin is irrelevant to whether or not artists are drawing DarkTyrannomon "incorrectly". All that matters for the original argument is validity.

As far as intent/origin, I agree with you, but that isn't what I'm arguing against. I'm arguing against others (not you) calling artists confused for drawing a legitimate version of DTyranno. I don't want to use the word strawman, but that's pretty much where this conversation has ended up.

Also, I'm fairly certain that isn't a claw on DarkTyrannomon X, but rather a tiny spike coming off of the metal bracer. That'd be a very small claw if it were a claw, and the shading of the spike is the same darkness as the two square pegs poking out, which means it's likely alligned with them.

If DarkTyrannomon X is missing a claw I guess it's because the artist didn't notice the third one on DarkTyrannomon like so many other times. Cyclonemon has the same problem.

Those aren't 'pegs'. If you look closely, there's a slight curve to them and a brownish tint. They're more than likely belt ends, meaning whatever that claw is, is wrapped in belts.

Digimon designs tend to be overlooked often depending on the certain artists huh.

I feel like I won't bother ranting on the details I just give up honestly... Digimon continues to give me tons of endless questions.
