There’s a lot going on here!  First, Land uses the Lunalight cards to end with a field that has Knightmare Mermaid pointing down to a Knightmare Gryphon whose effect Set Summon Limit from the Graveyard that was sent there from Curious the Lightsworn Dominion.  And Link Summoning Curious the Lightsworn Dominion is easy in a Deck with multiple types of monsters.  This one has Beast-Warriors, Winged-Beasts, Machines, Reptiles, Beasts, Aquas and Fiends, so getting 3 different ones isn’t difficult.  Using the Lunalight monster effects to field monsters for additional Summons is the bread and butter of this strategy.  And just in case that wasn’t enough, there’s also the skeleton of the Orcust engine in here too!

While there’s only one of each of the key Orcust cards like Orcust Harp Horror, Galatea, the Orcust Automaton and Dingirsu, the Orcust of the Evening Star, its more than enough since Dingirsu protects the Summon Limit lock and can be revived with the one-of Orcust Cymbal Skeleton.

In our Feature Matches, you may have noticed Land send Lunalight Panther Dancer to the Graveyard during his combo when Lunalight Panther Dancer didn’t factor into the Summon Limit field.  Sending Lunalight Panther Dancer sets up for Lunalight Wolf’s Pendulum Effect which is effectively Miracle Fusion for Lunalight Monsters.  Lunalight Leo Dancer’s Fusion Summon requires Lunalight Panther Dancer plus 2 more Lunalights, so sending Panther Dancer to the Graveyard skips the 2 Fusion Summons you’d normally need to get to Leo Dancer (Panther Dancer requires Lunalight Cat Dancer plus a Lunalight, and Cat Dancer requires 2 Lunalights. And you can see from the list that there is no Lunalight Cat Dancer, so sending Lunalight Panther Dancer with Lunalight Kaleido Chick is the only way to Summon Lunalight Leo Dancer.)  And Lunalight Leo Dancer is no joke.  A 3500 ATK double attacking monster that can’t be targeted by opponent’s card effects and once-per-turn destroys all of the opponent’s Special Summoned monsters after it attacks a monster… it’s a really good backup plan.

All in all, Land’s Lunalight Orcust Deck is etremely powerful in the right hands, and we saw that this weekend.  Congratulations to Clifton Land on his second place finish!
