Now we look at Glow-up Bulb, one of the more
interesting Tuner monsters out there. Level 1,
with 100 attack and defense, but as with most
Tuners, the attack and defense don't matter for a
whole lot. Being a Plant increases
playability, at least as far as Plants go,
obviously. If Glow-up Bulb finds itself in the
Graveyard, you can send the top card of your Deck to
the Graveyard to Special Summon it. You can
only use this effect once, and again, it's likely
easiest and most logical with Plants. However,
you could work your way to using this, it's another
solid Tuner option.
Glow-Up Bulb …
Hmmm … interesting … and I like interesting. It’s a
very simple effect and one that will 9 times out of
10 be useful to you. The obvious downside is that u
can only do it once per duel. Otherwise, it would be
SMASHED and thusly, banned with the quickness. Even
once per turn would be too much for people.
Even still, Glow-Up Bulb is still pretty great as an
extra card to be able to special summoned from your
graveyard for almost whenever u need it, and a tuner
at that. Why not try tuning it with something to
make a Synchro. Then immediately bring it back and
Tune it with the Sychro to make a better Synchro.
Fun? – You bet.
Oh, Glow-Up Bulb, the newest addition to the
"Let's make this Common into an Ultra!" club, you
crazy Plaguespreader Plant. If you actually manage
to find one of these Glow-Up Bulbs, which I'm sure
just wants to burst into a light show and not grow
up, you're probably using it in Quickdraw.
It just functions as a handy Tuner. It doesn't do
too many special things other than make Naturia
with such a tight Extra deck, you might not have
room for it. This is THE card for making Formula
Synchron and Shooting Star Dragon, though, because
it brings a level 1 Tuner out of nowhere as thanks
for milling it. Spore can do that, too, but the Bulb
provides a replacement mill (although it really
isn't much) and stays level 1, and can double as a
level 2 (no pun intended).
If you aren't using it in Quickdraw, you're using it
in Plants, which may or may not be more successful,
but is definitely friendlier for Glow-Up Bulb. With
more Plant support, you're more likely to hit
Naturia Beast. Although it's overrated in some
places, Glow-Up Bulb can be very effective in the
right deck. It's the ability to make a Synchro
whenever you want that makes this card good . . .
although level 1 Tuners really aren't the best. But,
Glow-Up Bulb can give you something for nothing,
which is why it's usually a good card.
Fun Fact: New Golden Sun game at the end of the
Tomorrow: A very (anti-) suggestive acronym.
Today we will be taking a look at one of the new
cards from Starstrike Blast, Glow-Up Bulb. Glow-Up
Bulb is a Level one Earth Plant Tuner with one
hundred Attack and Defense. You can mill the top
card of your deck to special summon this from your
Graveyard once per game. So once its in your
Graveyard it’s a free +1.
This card is down right amazing; its card design was
perfect. I love how they put the “once per Duel”
clause on it to prevent it from being broken like
Plaguespreader Zombie was with a “remove from play”
clause instead. This will prevent it from seeing the
Ban List since people will only play one of these
since they can only use one, which effectively made
it “limited” with out actually putting it on the
When finding a deck to put this in two decks come to
mind. The first one is Lightsworns. In a Lightsworn
deck their primary objective in their stage one, or
early game, is to load their Graveyard up with
different Lightsworn Monsters for their Judgment
Dragon so the milling effect of this works perfect
for this since it allows them to get a free mill
from their deck. Also this combos nicely with Wulf,
Lightsworn Beast since you can mill it for this
Glow-Up Bulb’s effect and then Special Summon him
since he is Special Summoned whenever he is sent
from the deck to the Graveyard. The Second one is
Quickdraw or Debris-Hime. This has great synergy
with this deck since it is a deck that focuses
heavily on spamming Synchros and it uses a number of
cards to load up their Graveyard like Card Trooper,
Foolish Burial, and Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter. One
great play they have with this card is to Special
Summon this and when they mill the top card they
mill Dandylion which will net them two more tokens
that they can Synchro with. They also play another
card like this called Spore which is another tuner
that can Special Summon itself from the Graveyard by
removing a Plant monster in your Graveyard from play
so we already know that the deck works well with
tuners that can Special Summon them self from the
In the Traditional Format this card is ok, it can
set up some nice plays in a Chaos Deck but again the
Traditional Format is just too FTK based for a card
like this so most of the time you won’t get a chance
to even summon.
This card is amazing in Quickdraw and Lightsworns. I
didn’t get it a 5/5 because 5/5 should be reserved
for broken cards which this isn’t.
Hit me up on Pojo or Youtube (pheanoblack) if you
have any comments or questions, I’m always open to
Glow-up Bulb might just be the most broken card
Konami printed in Starstrike Blast. Once per duel,
with virtually no cost, you can instantly summon a
level 1 plant tuner. The applications of this card
are huge, especially in plants and Quickdraw.
Glow-up Bulb is like an easier to use Plaguespreader
In the plant decks, this card is great fodder for
Super Solar Nutrient, so that they can get to their
lonefires even quicker. In the Quickdraw decks, you
can discard this card for Quickdraw’s effect, or you
can put it in the grave from one of your Ryko’s.
Anyway you look at it, this card is broken. In decks
that aren’t plant and Quickdraw, this monster is
still a great choice. A tuner on your field for
virtually no cost is always a plus. This card might
even see some play in Monarch decks. It allows for
them to have a monster to tribute, and if they need
it, can also allow them to go into Black Rose and
clear the field.
Glow-Up Bulb is a great card. That’s really all
there is to it. He can fit nicely into just about
any deck and is able to be used without paying much
of a cost.
