Felis, Lightsworn Archer Snipes the Competition!

August 27th, 2014

Lots of awesome new Lightsworn cards were recently released in the Realm of Light Structure Deck, but what you might not know is that there’s one more new Lightsworn monster in Duelist Alliance! Felis, Lightsworn Archer works alongside the rest of the newly released Lightsworn monsters to enhance the Lightsworn strategy.

Felis, Lightsworn Archer
is a Level 4 Tuner with 1100 ATK and 2000 DEF. Like Wulf, Lightsworn Beast, you can’t Normal Summon or Set Felis, and can only Special Summon her with a card effect. If you draw her, you’ll usually want to put her to use by discarding her to pay a cost, like to activate Solar Recharge or use the effect of Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner.

Fortunately, Felis, Lightsworn Archer has an awesome effect that makes up for the fact that she can’t be Normal Summoned. If Felis, Lightsworn Archer is sent from your Deck to your Graveyard by the effect of a monster, you Special Summon her from your Graveyard.

Most Lightsworn monsters, including Raiden, Hand of the Lightsworn and Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner, have effects that send cards from your Deck to your Graveyard. Use one of these monsters’ effects to send Felis to your Graveyard and Special Summon her to the field.

While Felis is on your field, you can Tribute her to activate her effect and target 1 monster on your opponent’s field. Felis destroys that monster, and then sends 3 cards from the top of your Deck to your Graveyard. This play will eliminate an opponent’s threat, while filling up your Graveyard with the Lightsworn monsters you need to advance your strategy.

But if you don’t need to destroy a monster with her effect, Felis is also a Level 4 LIGHT Tuner monster! She’s perfect for Synchro Summoning high-Level Synchro Monsters. Combine her with a Level 4 non-Tuner like Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress to Synchro Summon a Level 8 Synchro Monster like Stardust Dragon or Scrap Dragon.

Combine her with a Level 3 non-Tuner like Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner to Synchro Summon a Level 7 monster like Black Rose Dragon, Ancient Sacred Wyvern, Arcanite Magician or Michael, the Arch-Lightsworn. You can even use Lumina’s effect to discard a card from your hand and Special Summon Felis from your Graveyard, instantly enabling a Level 7 Synchro Summon!

Felis is also handy with a standout card from Dragons of Legend: Mathematician! Mathematician sees a lot of play in the new Shaddoll and Burning Abyss Decks and can send Felis directly to the Graveyard to be Special Summoned, giving you the Synchro Material Monsters for a Level 7 Synchro Summon. Look for her to make an impact in your local and Regional tournaments, as well as at the YCS level now that Duelist Alliance is out!
