Edit whole damn post...
One card synchro with mistil is still possible.
Summon Dux. Equip Phalanx, special Phalanx, send Phalanx to grave for the Mistil and equip Mistil with Phalanx, special summon it then you can sync a level 8 monster.
So..... still very much possible.
In theory may not sound so good. But.. from playtesting it works well.
Well , at least thats what my friend says. And he's been topping his uni's tourneys with Drags.
Yes, his uni has tourneys!
