QQ: How Much Starlight Road?
Time for more QQ (that stands for Quick Questions!) This time, I asked several Duelists what Decks they’re using and how many copies of Starlight Road they play, to find out if there’s a pattern. Here are the results I gathered:
Ryan Spicer, Age 19, from Texas
“I’m playing Caliber Cat with 1 copy of Starlight Road in it.”
Matthew Herrera, Age 12, from Stratford Connecticut
“I’m using a Monarch Deck with a tech copy of Card Trooper. I play 1 copy of Starlight Road in my Main Deck.”
Andrew Gomar, Age 14, from Weston Connecticut
“I’m playing Cyberdarks! I don’t use Starlight Road in my Deck because it’s way too easy for my opponent to read.”
Josh Thomas, Age 22, from Illinois
“I’m running a Plant Monarch Deck with Skill Drain in it. I don’t Main Deck Starlight Road, but I do Side Deck a copy.”
Michaelangelo Krupka Janik, Age 14, from Queens, NY
“I’m playing Flamvell Cat. I’m not using any copies of Starlight Road in my Deck.”
Eric Peck, Age 15, from Shelton Connecticut
“I’m running Final Countdown in the tournament today. I’m not using any copies of Starlight Road. My Deck doesn’t need it.”
Dan Reilly, Age 13, from Hopewell Junction, NY.
“I’m playing Gravekeeper’s! I don’t run any copies of Starlight Road in my Main Deck, but I Side Deck 2 copies.”
Dan Rose, Age 20, from Rhode Island
“I’m running Miracle Glads. It’s a Gladiator Beast Deck that uses Miracle Fusion and Future Fusion to Summon Elemental Hero Absolute Zero and Elemental Hero Gaia. I’m using 1 copy of Starlight Road in my Main Deck.”
Adam Corn, Age 19, from Orange County, Southern California
“I’m running a Quickdraw Synchron Deck. I’m still debating whether or not to Main Deck 1 copy of Starlight Road. It has a really strong effect, but it’s also situational and can be a dead card at times.”
Jake Chammas, Age 11, from Long Island, NY
“I’m playing Vayusworn! It uses Blackwing – Vayu the Emblem of Honor, Blackwing – Sirocco the Dawn, and Judgment Dragon. I don’t use Starlight Road in my Deck.”
Seems like most folks are running with just 1 copy. But in the right cases, just 1 copy is all you need, and even the threat of Starlight Road can be a big deterrent to your opponent!
