…and people complain that Burning Abyss have overstayed their welcome. Lightsworns have come a long way since their introduction in 2008, when the deck revolved around drawing into and setting up Judgment Dragon. Raiden, Hand of the Lightsworn not only gave the deck a much better outlet for milling during its main phase, but as a tuner it opened up a variety of Synchro options for the deck. Far more important, though, is the release of Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn, a Rank 4 Xyz which allows the deck to generate massive advantage from its milling mechanic beyond just getting lucky milling Wulf or setting up JD. Unfortunately, Minerva’s only release in the TCG thus far has been as a YCS prize card, but players with access to it also have access to a deck with incredibly strong potential plays that is surprisingly consistent for how heavily it focuses on sending random cards to the graveyard. These are the best options for Lightsworn monsters to run in the main deck. The level 4 Lightsworns’ biggest issue is that they’re either normal summons, or cannot be summoned from the hand easily at all, so the rest of the deck has to be structured around accommodating such subpar cards. Speaking of bypassing normal summon limitations, Gem-Knight Seraphinite is a more than perfect solution. As a bonus, Performage Trick Clown provides fairly constant board presence for the deck. Other enablers for Synchro/Xyz plays. Goblindbergh isn’t always played, but it gives the deck an option to summon Felis or Wulf in hand. Fairy Tail – Snow arguably contributes just as much, if not more, than Minerva to Lightsworn decks’ recent success. It’s usable from anywhere, at any time, making it not only a combo enabler but also an interactive play on the opponent’s turn. Lightsworns perfectly complement her difficult-to-meet but minimal summoning cost, as without Judgment Dragon the deck doesn’t actually need to keep all of its cards in the graveyard at all times. Other options: Zombie engine -Uni-Zombie -Mezuki -Shiranui Solitaire Galaxy Soldier for access to Cyber Dragon Infinity and Constellar Pleiades
