If you have not heard of Starlight Road, you are going to be shocked.
Simply put, its one of the most amazing cards ever. Its a promo in the newly soon to be released Yuusei Duel Disk.
Once set, its a time bomb. Its versatile in any deck and will (be the new Gorz?) I suppose?
effect: When an effect that destroys 2 (or more) cards on your field activates, negate it and destroy the card. Then special summon a Stardust dragon from your extra deck.
How awesome is that? Not only does it protects your field, it special summons stardust! Its saying "Let me negate a destruction effect then i shall bring forth a 2500 beatstick who negates every other destruction effect"
In this format, it kills " heavy storm", "judgement dragon", "celestia lightsworn angel", "Gladiator Beast gyzarus" , "lightning vortex" , "Icarus attack" and several more that I cant think off.
Its so good! Really? NOPE :P NYEK.
At first look its awesome. But after you think about it, is it worth running? Its rather situational, it probablly will be destroyed and negated beforehand before it can even activate (DAD, MST, Breaker (which is at 3!), Bestiari, ryko, and how many cards actually destroy 2 or more!
Certainly, heavy storm is one. But its only one. You want to waste your deck space to take out only one card??!! I much rather play My Body As A Shield. (quoted by Lazaro Bellido: Body is the new Solemn)
In LS, its possible they have a bad hand that even celestia cant be summoned. Or so, it might be destroyed by Ryko already. Judgment dragon is no exception. Its a late game situated card and as we all know, its too hard to play since the game will have finished already. Or, it will be destroyed by Lyla lightlord magician. With 3 charges berserk, its bound to die.
In BF it stops Icarus attack etc. But most BF variants are already converting to the Cemetery Vayu version. So does it really matter? They arent scared of Stardust thats for sure. And safe to say, normal BF decks have a Kalut in their hands just waiting to kill stardust. We all know how low stardust's attack is. A goyou can wipe it out, kalut takes care of it and just about everything. Even in anti meta decks dimensional prison, anyone?
In GB, i'd laugh. Most likely Bestiari has killed off that Starlight road. Also, there is trap stun, mst, giant trunade, cold wave in standard GB so what are we scared of? In DDGB, stardust wont even last one round. And the other spells/ traps do not read "destroy 2 cards" (except gyzarus). DD fissure will send it to hell. And its never ever gonna come out. I think we all have e-con, waboku, shrink, mirror wall etc.
Its too expensive, its too hard to obtain and you wanne waste RM 400 to buy a toy with 5 promos and some boosters? I wouldn't. Oh and i shall mention again that BREAKER IS AT THREE.
In short, starlight road is an overrated card. Changed your mind yet?
