“Stardust Dragon” is one of Yusei’s signature cards, a card that almost every Duelist has in their Extra Deck. Its high ATK and incredibly useful effect have changed the way the game is played ever since its release in The Duelist Genesis, forcing Duelists to think twice about cards that destroy other cards. Tthe Duelist Pack Collection Tin 2010, takes things to a whole new level with the new Trap Card that everybody’s talking about, “Starlight Road.”. “Starlight Road” is incredibly powerful, and it makes “Stardust Dragon” even easier to use!
Since anyone and everyone can put “Starlight Road” in their Deck, you’ll also want to know how to play against it. First off, when “Starlight Road” is activated, it tries to destroy the card it was Chained to. If you have a “Stardust Dragon” on your side of the field when your opponent activates their Road, you can use it to negate their “Starlight Road.” You can do the same thing if you’ve got “My Body as a Shield” and “Starlight Road” is trying to destroy a monster you control. “Starlight Road’s” effect also tries to Special Summon a monster when it resolves, so you can use “Royal Oppression” to negate its entire effect. Finally, “Starlight Road” can’t be used in the Damage Step, so if you’re using the effect of “Red Dragon Archfiend” to destroy your opponent’s monsters, they can’t stop it with “Starlight Road.”
“Starlight Road” is a card with 2 amazing effects and is likely to see play in almost every Deck from now on. Check back here soon when we’ll be looking at the more advanced tactics that “Starlight Road” creates, and which Decks get a big boost from its release.
