Extreme Force: Curiouser and Curiouser

January 23rd, 2018

Lightsworn monsters have always been popular, and they managed to stay at the forefront of competitive Dueling for nearly a decade. Soon, a new Lightsworn monster will be released in Extreme Force. This new Lightsworn Link Monster will be a curious addition to Lightsworn Decks, as it helps Lightsworn Duelists keep up with the times.

Curious, the Lightsworn Dominion is a 2400 ATK Link 3 monster with arrows pointing directly up and to the bottom left and bottom right. You can Link Summon it by sending 3 monsters with the same Attribute but different types to the Graveyard. Fortunately, this is an easy requirement for a Lightsworn Duelist to fulfill, since all Lightsworn monsters (except for Twilightsworn monsters) are LIGHT, and they span lots of different types.

Curious has a bunch of powerful effects that make it worthwhile to Link Summon. First off, as soon as you Link Summon it, you can send any card from your Deck to your Graveyard. You can use this effect to send Wulf, Lightsworn Beast to the Graveyard and Special Summon it with its effect; you can use this effect to send Lightsworn Judgment to your Graveyard and use its effect to add Judgment Dragon to your hand; or you can use this effect to send a non-Lightsworn card like Glow-Up Bulb, Mezuki, Performage Trick Clown, Lost Wind, or Breakthrough Skill to your Graveyard and take advantage of its in-Graveyard effect.

Curious’s next effect sends the top 3 cards of your Deck to your Graveyard once per turn if a card is sent from your Deck to your Graveyard by an effect. This power is immediately useful, since it lets you send the top 3 cards of your Deck to your Graveyard right after you choose a card to send to the Graveyard with Curious’s other effect. If Curious survives on the field for more than one turn, its effect can be used in conjunction with your other Lightsworn monsters to pile on to their effects and send an extra 3 cards to the Graveyard each turn.

Curious’s final effect activates if it leaves the field. If Curious is destroyed by battle or leaves the field because of an opponent’s card effect while you control Curious, you can add any card from your Graveyard to your hand. Since Lightsworn Decks are notorious for sending lots of cards to the Graveyard throughout a Duel, and Curious’s effect that activates if it’s Link Summoned lets you send any card to the Graveyard, Curious’s parting effect can grab you just about any card you desire. That includes Limited cards like Raigeki, That Grass Looks Greener, and Soul Charge.

Curious is a powerful addition to Lightsworn Decks and fits in perfectly with the Lightsworn theme. Since it can be Summoned by combining any 3 monsters with the same Attribute and different types, it is certain to be a strong card in other Decks as well. Any Duelist will benefit from sending a card of his or her choice from the Deck to the Graveyard and adding a card of his or her choice from the Graveyard to the hand. As a result, expect Curious, the Lightsworn Dominion to be used in lots of different Extra Decks in the casual playing field and competitive tournament scene alike.
