Stardust Dragon is another excellent Synchro monster who is Level 8 with 2500 atk (meh) and 2000 def (reasonable) who is of the Wind attribute and appropriately enough, a Dragon, and ovbiously a Synchro.

 

Stardust Dragon is Synchro Summoned by one Tuner monster and one or more non-Tuner monsters.  Now, you can tribute this card to negate the activation of Monster's effect, Magic card, or Trap card, that destroys a card(s) on the Field, and destroy that card.

 

If you negate an effect in this way, you can Special Summon this card from your Graveyard during the End Phase.  Here, we have a quicker and more resiliant Sacred Phoenix for Synchro Decks.  Negation is a great effect built into any card, and self-revival is even better.

 

The 2500 attack is a bit low for a Level 8 monster, but it helps add a little balance to a very powerful card.  It can take out the 2400 attack threats, but still falls to your 2800 attack monsters that are popular.

 

Ratings:

 

Traditional:  3.25/5  Easier to activate the effect, with more cards to negate. 

 

Advanced:    4.25/5

 

Art:  5/5

Stardust Dragon

Simply put, this is one of the most broken Synchros to exist.  Thank God it's in a tin, or else we'd all be paying $50+ each for them.

Let's see...8-star synchro = easy summon with 2-star Tuner + a 6-star monster.  An Emergency Teleport'd Krebons and Destiny Hero - Malicious easily come to mind, though any 2-star Tuner + a Monarch, a Mind control'd Gyzarus, or the like are also possible.

He has a self-protection effect, as well as the ability to negate Heavy Storm without wasting half your life.  While an opponent will have a few outs to it -- D. D. Crowing it before it can be revived, a Brain/Mind Control, a Dimensional Prison, or simply attacking over it, most of these are difficult to do without using a destruction effect somewhere along the line.  He forces your opponnet into a situation where they have to make a sloppy play or waste multiple cards to get rid of it.  If you play Stardust correctly, this will always generate an advantage for you even if your opponent does find an out to it.

5/5.  No reason not to play it.

Here is the grandpa of all Synchro monsters. 2500 ATK and 2000 DEF are horrible on a level 8 monster, but with this guy you aren't necessarily looking for an ATK value. The effect is that it will tribute itself to negate an effect that destroys your cards. Wait, you just put 2 (maybe even 3) monsters into summoning this guy! Well he will also Special Summon himself during the end phase of the turn.
 
This means that without DD Crow, Dimensional Prison or a monster with higher ATK, your opponent is going to have a hard time getting rid of him. There are other answers, like Compulsory Evacuation Device and Phoenix Wing Wind Blast. But if your opponent is low on cards, Stardust pretty much wins games.
 
The best thing about this card? It came out in a tin. That's right, we finally have an overpowered card that goes in every deck that is readily available for purchase at something less than 100 bucks. The widespreadness of Stardust Dragon menas that you always have to be ready for it, which kinda sucks. At my locals, there are 8 year olds wielding playsets of these guys, so that means that anti-Stardust tech is the next big thing, as chances are in a tournament anywhere you will run into it at least once.

    Todayʼs card up for review is Stardust Dragon. If you think this card is in anyway bad, leave the room, just kidding. But anyways, this guy is a one man wrecking crew. While this guy is on the board, anything that you try to kill I will negate. Then he gets to come back next turn

    I cannot really say much about him that isnʼt obvious. He is extremely easy to bring out via Destiny Hero Malicious and Jutte Fighter/Krebons. If you can get him out and have like 1 or so cards to protect him for a turn or two you will win the game he is that good. I highly suggest you go and get 3 copies of this.

Trad: 4/5
Adv: 5/5

Stardust Dragon

Anyone who tells you that this card is bad is flat lying to you. If you play Synchro monsters, Stardust Dragon is definitely a top pick. Its fairly easy to summon, has 2500 ATK, and an effect that will send Gyzarus to the hospital. If you're a teledad player liek me, you're probably already packing 3 of these in your Extra Deck. Lets go over why this card is just so great. First, Its level 8 which synergizes perfectly with the Emergency Teleport + Destiny Hero Malicious combo allowing a player to get this guy out quickly and early. Its effect is comparable to Prime Material Dragon, but one could argue that its even better. If you're opponent plays ANY card that has an effect of destroying cards on youyr side of the field, you have the power to decide whther or not you want to allow it. Im sure the other reviewers will cover the other great points to this card if I missed any!

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 5/5 Any player that wants to use synchros has this as a first pick!

This card is ridiculous. Level 8 makes it easy to Synchro Summon. Solid 2500ATK. It not only runs over Monarchs and Prime Material Dragons but tributes itself to negate destruction then reanimates itself afterwards. To get rid of it, it either has to be run over or baited into using the effect and then D.D. Crow'd. The first of which isn't terribly hard due to Dark Armed Dragon, Judgment Dragon, and Goyo Guardian but can still swing the momentum of the game until the opponent gets it.

Even in Traditional this card has uses. If you summon it first turn against Empty Jar the opponent will have to rely entirely on summoning Dark Magician of Chaos to get rid of it and if they can't, you essentially just won the game.

Overall, there's really not much reason to not have this in your Extra Deck. Even if you're not using Tuners yourself, you may as well have it on the off chance that you're Creature Swap'd one. If you are using Tuners, this is a more likely than not a staple in your Extra Deck. I can't imagine it wouldn't but with the new 15 card limit  for the Extra Deck and new cards coming out, that may change.

Traditional: 5/5
Advanced: 5/5

Here is one of the best Synchro Monsters in the game. He has an awesome effect for pretty much all situations. If any card of yours is trying to be destroyed, just tribute Stardust Dragon to negate and destroy it. At that time it may seem like a one for one, but at the end phase you get the powerhouse back and able to use his effect again. He is very easy to summon with use Destiny Hero Malicious and emergency teleport.

If someone is trying to destroy your spell or traps with Mystical Space Typhoon, Stardust Dragon will be there. Bottomless? Not a problem with Stardust. Attacking a Man Eater Bug? Even in the damage step Stardust will even negate that effect. The only time Stardust can't chain his effect is when someone uses a Counter Trap card. Easy summon and awesome effect will make Stardust Dragon one of the unstoppable forces in the game.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 4.5/5
