Early February, Konami released another dragon-oriented structure deck known as Dragons Collide. It is a decent structure, though it is nothing compared to the Dragunity structure deck. However, Dragons Collide does have some powerful dragons such as Dark Armed Dragon, Darkflare Dragon, and Red Eyes Darkness Dragon. However, there is another monster that may not be as well-known as the previous three but is still really good: Lightpulsar Dragon.
Lightpulsar Dragon is a powerful dragon with a solid 2500 attack points. Plus it looks really, really cool! It looks like a mix between Stardust Dragon and Thunder End Dragon, if you look closely. Anyways, the reason I like Lightpulsar Dragon so much is because of its outrageous effect. First of all, you can special summon Lightpulsar Dragon from your hand by banishing a dark and light monster. It can be special summoned from the graveyard by discarding a dark and light monster as well. However, while these effects make playing Lightpulsar Dragon easy, it’s the third effect that makes Lightpulsar Dragon extremely powerful.
When Lightpulsar Dragon is sent from the field to the graveyard, you can special summon one level five or higher dark, dragon monster. Doesn’t sound that great at first, does it? However, this effect allows for a first turn win and is a reason why Lightpulse Dragon has its own deck. By using Red Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon and Cannon Soldier or Toon Cannon Soldier, Lightpulse Dragon creates a dangerous loop. Here’s how it works:
1. Special summon REDMD with its effect and use REDMD’s effect to special summon Lightpulse Dragon.
2. Normal summon Cannon Soldier and activate its effect. Destroy Lightpulse Dragon and REDMD to inflict 1000 life point damage to your opponent. (Make sure you sacrifice REDMD first!).
3. When Lightpulse Dragon goes to the graveyard, activate its effect to bring back REDMD and then use REDMD’s effect to bring back Lightpulse Dragon.
4. Repeat and destroy your opponent
It is such an easy and consistent combo. Many duelists having been calling the ‘Lightpulse loop’ the most easy-to-do first turn kill ever. That’s why Lightpulse Dragon is so scary; it creates a dangerous loop that can end the duel in the one turn.
