#4--Stardust Dragon

I'm a little sad that Stardust Dragon only made the list at fourth, as I think a couple spots higher wiould have been more appropriate. I love Stardust Dragon and have since it's release, and it continues to be my favorite Synchro monster (just wait until we get the assualt
form.)

Stardust Dragon is a Wind monster who is Level 8 with 2500 attack and 2000 defense, and obviously a Synchro monster of the Dragon type, who is Synchro Summoned simply by one Tuner and one or more non-Tuner-type monsters.

You know what Stardust Dragon does, and while it may not be as completely destructive as Black Rose Dragon, the revival is what makes this card so delicious. Games have been and continue to be won solely on this card, as difficult as that may be.

You don't even have to wait until your next turn for the revival to kick in. If you activate the effect, he automatically returns during your End Phase, and that is awesomeness, in a word, pure awesomeness.

Traditional: 3.85/5

Advanced: 4.85/5

General Zorpa Stardust Dragon

This behemoth and Yusei's favorite Synchro monster has changed the game. 2500 ATK and the Synchro Level of 8 make this guy really easy to get to the field, as Malicious+Krebons=Stardust. He is actually rather weak for a level 8, but he can handle most of the threats that come his way.

Basically you Summon this guy when your opponent has destruction effects. Simply because he tributes himself in order to negate the destruction effect and destroy the card that activated. Then, he comes back for another swing during the end phase of the turn. This i shuge, as a continual source of negation means you will likely win the game if you can protect the Stardust for that long.

Basically you will use this guy when you are afraid of Mirror Force, Torrential Tribut or another kill card. Phoenix Wing Wind Blast made a resurgence altely because it is one of the few cards that can deal with Stardust without triggering it's effect. Remember, Synchros are return to the Extra deck when they are spun or bounced, so it effectively becomes a kill card.

There is not much to say about this guy, except that he is insanely good and insanely easy to get, so there should be no reason why at LEAST 2 copies are in your extra deck.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-5/5

4: Stardust Dragon

    Today’s card is Stardust Dragon. He is the most Commonly summoned Synchro. He is very easy to bring out with the cards we have in our arsenal. His effect is sick. There is so much destruction around right now, this guy will help ya out with that problem by popping himself to negate destruction, then will come back to your field. You have to use 2-3 of this guy period!

You can Tribute this card to negate the activation of a Spell Card, Trap
Card, or Effect Monster's effect that destroys a card(s) on the field, and
destroy that card. If you negate an effect this way, you can Special Summon
this card from your Graveyard during the End Phase.

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
