Stardust Shimmer, another simple, and essentially Stardust Dragon support card.  This card would be a lot better if it were Quickplay or a Trap so you could spring it on your opponent.  You remove Monsters from your Graveyard whose total Level equals the Level of a Dragon type Synchro in your Graveyard, and Special Summon it.  This becomes even (slightly) more situational as the Level of the removed Monsters has to equal that of the chosen Monster, not be greater than...

Today's card is one that I'm a pretty big fan of, Stardust Shimmer. I like this card for many reasons. The first one is pretty obvious, after your Stardust Dragon, Scrap Dragon, or even your Dark End Dragon has gone to the grave, you can get revenge on your opponent by bringing it right back to the field on your next turn. Another reason I like this card is that you can use this card to bait out Solemn Warnings from your opponent. You can either summon a card and have them use their Warning, or use this and force their Warning so that you can summon whatever you needed to without fear of Warning. Another cool thing about this card is that, not only can you select any star level dragon monster in your grave, but you can also remove purely tuners or purely non-tuners from your grave to use this card, you don't have to use both. Over all, I think that this is a great card for casual play.

Stardust Shimmer is a spell with some potential at first glance. You summon any Dragon-type Synchro from your graveyard by removing monsters in the graveyard whose levels equal the Dragon's level. Usually that means you'll be removing the materials used to summon it the first time, but it could be any combination of levels.

The only problem is there are other cards that do this better. Monster Reborn is a staple in any deck, but if you find you need more recursion, there's always Call of the Haunted. Call has the advantage of summoning any card, not just Dragon Synchros. Stardust Shimmer does have the advantage of being a Spell and not leaving itself attached to the monster though.

Overall, I don't think it's necessary in most decks. Many of the strategies that throw down quick Dragon Synchros would rather keep their graveyard, like Dragunity or Fish. They also are capable of easily just making a new Synchro instead of reviving an old one. I don't see why Stardust Shimmer would see any play when something like Call of the Haunted doesn't even get used.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
