Hello Pojo Fans,
Curious, the Lightsworn Dominion is the Lightsworn Link monster that is splashable in other decks.
Three monsters are needed, but they have to have the same Attribute but different Types. Lightsworns can do this easily depending on how many of each Lightsworn monster you run, but also can be found in the 60-card mix mash decks that have been seeing play. SPYRALS could Link Summon this card, though they likely wouldn’t, they have synergy with their own Link Monster. Curious is a 1-for-1 when it is destroyed by your opponent, but you also get a free Foolish Burial on Curious Link Summon. Its best effect is its Lightsworn effect of milling 3 off the top once per turn if a card(s) is sent from your deck to the grave. Foolish Burial, Charge, Recharge, Armageddon Knight, Glow-Up Bulb, and its own effect off its Link Summon will activate this effect.
This is another way for Lightsworns to get more mill power, but they already have 3 Recharge and 3 Charge. If you get this card out you should likely get a Judgment Dragon out that turn unless you make this over more than one turn. As for 60-card decks, this helps them as much as Lightsworn, but they don’t need to run a lot of Lightsworn monsters to benefit from its effects.
Until Next Time
We end this week off with another great Link Monster in Extreme Force in Curious, the Lightsworn Dominion.
Curious is a Light Warrior Link-3 with 2400 ATK and arrows pointing Up, Bottom Left, and Bottom Right. ATK is fine for a Link-3, type and attribute are good, and arrows are nice, though I don’t really like arrows pointing up, but I guess it helps balance a good Link Monster. The summoning requirements are 3 monsters of the same attribute but different types. Easy to do in Lightsworns are they are full of different types. There are also other combos to summon this card, but I won’t list them cause they can get too long in this case. If Curious is destroyed by battle or leaves the field by an opponent’s card effect while its owner controls it, you can add a card in the GY back to the hand. There are many great cards in the game players would love to use as much as possible, so this is great for recycling cards that can help advance your game state or win you the game overall. The two following effects can only be used once per turn each:
Obvious Lightsworn synergy is obvious. You can send anything to the GY with this, and Lavalval Chain has proven that being able to send anything from the deck to the GY is good. Also the first effect can trigger the second one to get some mills in, and you are likely playing this in a deck that wants to mill. Curious is a great Link Monster. Sure you got to go out of your way to get three monsters with the same attribute but different types, but that is not too hard in this game, it is very possible actually. Curious is a great Link Monster, play it in the proper decks.
Advanced Rating: 4.5/5
Curious, the Lightsworn Dominion, is another Link Monster, to close our week. Link 3, 2400 attack, Light and Warrior, although she does have a bit of an odd Link requirement. Three Monsters of the same attribute, but of different types. This is fun, because in addition to being usable in Lightsworn, she can be Teched other places as well. The first effect is the more splashable of the two. When Link Summoned, you get to dump a card from your Deck to the Graveyard. Obviously milling helps Lightsworn about any time ever, but it speeds along combos and many other Decks as well. Secondly, if a card is sent from your Deck to the Graveyard by effect (any effect) send your top 3 cards from the Deck to your Graveyard. Pretty much the same to be said there as with the first effect, although dumping 3 as opposed to 1 probably benefits Lightsworn more than anyone else. It’s funny, Lightsworn will definitely enjoy this card, but Lightsworn doesn’t NEED it to survive either. They have a full arsenal as it is. That doesn’t take away from this card though.
