Merry Christmas everyone! This does it for our
short week, but we close out with a good one :)
Shooting Star Dragon is the new trump card of
Yusei, if you hadn't guessed, (and seen in Season 4
of 5Ds) and is Synchro Summoned with Stardust Dragon
and one Synchro Tuner monster, which is actually
more difficult that the original monster and two
Tuners of yesterday, in my opinion.
Anyway, Shooting Star Dragon has 3300 attack (at
Level 10 (and still Wind) to the 3500 of the Level
12 Red Nova Dragon) and 2500 defense. Now, what
can't Shooting Star Dragon do? Well let's have a
look...you can activate each of these effects once
1) Reveal the top 5 cards of your Deck, then
shuffle your Deck. During this turn's Battle Phase,
this card can attack once for each Tuner revealed in
this way. Two would probably be average or a lot in
five cards, but even one gives you an extra attack.
2) You can negate the activation of a Magic,
Trap, or Effect of an effect monster that would
destroy a card(s) on the Field, and destroy that
card. That's fabulous, as at the very least, you
force your opponent to waste something to play a
second card to do the same thing.
3) Finally, like Red Nova Dragon, when your
opponent declares an attack, you can remove Shooting
Star Dragon from play to negate the attack.
(Remember that they don't have to attack Shooting
Star Dragon to activate this effect.) Then, you
again can Special Summon this card during the End
Traditional: 3/5 Very difficult to pull of in
Advanced: 5/5 If you get it on the Field, you're
very likely to win :)
