Daybreaker, a Level 4, Light attributed, Warrior
Monster, who has 1700 attack and 0 defense.
What does Daybreaker do...not a whole lot
unfortunately. IF you Special Summon him, he
Special Summon another from your Hand. There's
not a whole lot to say here, it could make Synchro
Summoning easier, but Daybreaker isn't a Tuner.
It makes Summoning a Rank 4 XYZ easier though.
Even in Warriors, there's not a huge reason to use
him, and don't let the Light attribute be that
Today we are going to take a look at another card
that supports the Xyz theme whose era we now reside
in. Daybreaker has the ability to swarm the field
with all 3 copies of itself. Two things have to
happen for this to occur. First, you will need to
have all three copies of this card in your hand. The
best way that you can accomplish this feat is a card
called Photon Veil. Photon Veil is a spell card that
allows you to shuffle 3 light monsters from your
hand back into your deck to search for up to 3 Light
monsters of the same name level 4 or lower from your
deck to your hand. Of course that means that you are
playing a deck with a lot of light monsters. You
could use Daybreaker in a Lightsworn or Fairy Deck
for starters. You could try something original and
play Thunder Kings, Effect Veilers, Elemental Hero
Alias, and Gemini Spark with Miracle Fusion and
maybe even Super Polymerization.
The second requirement you have in order to summon
all of your Daybreakers is for the first one to be
special summoned. We have another nifty card from
Photon Shockwave called Photon Lead. This card
allows us to special summon a level 4 or lower light
monster from your hand. We have some monsters that
can start our special summoning as well.
Goblindbergh, Marauding Captain, and Summoner Monk
can do it even though they are not light monsters.
The one question that remains is why spend all of
our resources to summon 3 Daybreakers? Lets start by
throwing in another nifty card called Photon
Booster. This card boosts all of our light monsters
to 2000 attack, so at worst; we are attacking with
6000 attack points. If we have Galaxy-Eyes Photon
Dragon in hand, we are summoning a powerful monster.
Speaking of powerful monsters, Xyz monsters with 3
level 4 monsters to summon them can have some great
effects. Right now we have Number 10: Illumiknight.
There is another powerful Xyz monster called Vylon
Disigma that can steal your opponent’s monster and
has a Castor effect.
There are plenty of powerful monsters that require 3
tributes, like the God cards, Wicked God cards, and
Beast King Barbaros to name a few. I am just not
fond of cards that need combos to make them work. In
a light deck like Lightsworn and Fairies, this is
not so much of a big deal as you can use combo cards
for other reasons and you are not dependant on
Traditional: 2/5 (only because it is a light
Our second day here on pojo, *AKA: Tuesday* and
we're looking at a very interesting and a possible
sleeper card from Photon Shockwave, Daybreaker.
Daybreaker is a level 4, Light/Warrior....that alone
can cause problems. 1700 ATK and 0 DEF are not the
best stats. Daybreaker's effect is if it special
summoned in anyway, you can special summon another
Daybreaker from your hand. Reinforcements of the
Army and/or Photon Veil are a few ways to get one or
more copies to your hand. If you get an opening hand
of 2 or all three, you can start out strong.
Marauding Captain, Photon Lead, GoblinDeburgh and
X-Saber Wayne are all great ways to get out
Daybreaker(s). This card has a lot of uses, other
than just swarming the field and using The A. Forces
to boost all three Daybreakers. Synchros, Xyz, even
using Photon Booster for Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon.
This card is is useful in almost any deck, ranging
from pure Warrior decks, Light variants, Synchro/Xyz
and even Chaos. This card is a real swiss army knife
as it has so many uses, I look forward to getting my
playset sometime soon. If you have any plans of
using Daybreaker, you must you 3 copies, no
Tomorrow: Snakes.....Why did it have to be snakes?
Warrior/Light/Lv 4/ 1700 ATK/ 0 Def
When this card is special summoned, special summon
another copy from your hand.
Basically if you play this, you have multiple Utopia
or Roach ready at your disposal.
This card has HIGH swarm potential that can easily
lead into a XYZ spam or a near OTK. Using cards such
as Photon Veil, Reinforcement of the Army, Field
Commander Rahz , etc can get you all the pieces to
your hand for one BIG swarm with Marauding Captain,
Summoner Monk, etc.
Pros: A lot of support for Light and Warrior, effect
works when special summoned from anywhere, swarm
Cons: Horrid defense, can be dead in hand,
semi-decent attack stats.
Traditional: 3/5 Chaos food and swarm
Advanced: 4/5 if you can get the pieces going.
"When this card is Special Summoned: You can Special
Summon 1 "Daybreaker" from your hand."
This card could potentially swarm the field, but
that relies on you having two or three if him in
your hand at the same time. The Warrior Returning
Alive can help with this, and Reinforcement of the
Army can help you get another copy in hand, but
that's not the best use of such cards. There's
other, better swarming effects and this guy wouldn't
make the must-have set of cards for a warrior
Hello everyone. I apologize for my misread of the
CotD for yesterday.
Anyways, our next card from Photon Shockwave is
Daybreaker. This is a 4 star, Light attributed
warrior, with 1700 atk and 0 def. His effect says
that when this card is special summoned, you can
special summon a Daybreaker from your hand.
I actually see this card being a great addition
to warrior decks, being that it has the T.G. Warwolf
type effect. If you have multiple copies of this
card in your hand, and Reborn one from the
graveyard, you can actually pulls both from your
hand in succession. This makes for som great Xyz
fodder, with there being a plethore of cards that
can special summon this guy. Goblindbergh, from
GenForce can easily put Illumiknight on the field,
and the lesser Rank 4 Xyz monsters of Roach and
Utopia.(and those guys are better too)
Being of the Light attribute makes it able to be
used for some chaos fodder, including the new
version of Utopia that comes out in Order Of Chaos.
At 1700 atk, thats about mediocre for 4 star
monsters, and you wouldnt expect to have him stay on
the field for long anyway, being as you would want
his effect for Xyz materials. I do not believe that
Daybreaker will see any real play otherthan in caual
play, but I may be wrong, Ther are many cards that
combo well with this card, but I am not sure if it
would be worth it in the current format that we
Overall, Daybreaker looks like a fun card, and
I'm wondering if it cold be used in conjunction with
the trap card Copy Knight.
I don't see this card making any impact at all right
now. But time will tell.
Until next time, this is Blackmarketyugioh saying "
play hard or go home"
Traditional: 1/5- don't see this making any positive
plays in this format.
Advanced: 1/5- has potential, but not enough to go
Artwork: 2/5- what is that sword caled??? I
