Lunalight Reincarnation Dance

 

Well this trap is just bonkers. Lunalights are really unique in that they have multiple cards you just assume no theme should ever have. They have a spell in Lunalight Perfume that lets you summon from the grave for no cost and doesn’t equip or stay behind. Then, that card can be banished to search the deck for a new monster! They have pendulum monsters that provide outrageous advantage with no cost. And they have this trap, which is a 2 for 1 search from the deck since it’s really not tied to the monster you lost. A card that lets you search for any two monsters in the theme from the deck and puts them in hand? Imagine that in Monarchs, Burning Abyss or Kozmos (*shudder).

 

And Reincarnation Dance isn’t just a one-hit wonder. Its real power lies in its combos with Lunalight Blue Cat, which summons a monster when destroyed, and in the Lunalight pendulum monsters. While you wouldn’t be able to use Dance when one of your pendulums is hit, it would be able to be used if a pendulum is destroyed in the monster zone, since Dance does not need the monster to go to the grave.

 

I think this card has really great potential. Lunalights will definitely get more support in the future, making this trap better and better. Any card that is a double deck searcher should be on the radar of good players, especially when the requirement is basic and the cost is nonexistent. Watch out for this card.

 

Advanced: 4/5

Future Potential: 4/5

As a searcher that is a trap card, it is slow.  Unlike ROTA, this won't do anything for you in the first turn of the duel, it's a bad card to topdeck and if you have no monsters, this card can't search.  However, the Lunalight deck already runs 3 Tenki's to mitigate these problems. 

It's not chainable to Spell/Trap destruction but on the upside, monsters being destroyed in battle or by either player's card effects is a common occurrence, so there will be many ways to trigger this card.  As a reward for some of the slowness, you get to add 2 cards instead of 1.  Despite the low to moderate level of risk, this card does generate positive advantage.  At the end of the day, every archetype needs to +1 in some way if it wants to win duels. 

And it's not just a plus 1.  It's a search as well, so you can choose to add 2 monsters that have very good synergy in accordance to the situation you are in.  For that reason, it's an essential card for the deck.

3.5/5

This one might seem like it's coming out of nowhere. However, there might be some natural synergy with Dark Magician and Lunalight. Then again, it could be a huge train wreck. Either way, Lunalight Reincarnation Dance is a good and necessary option for Lunalight decks. It is a Normal Trap with no cost that can only be activated once per turn. If any of the monsters you control are destroyed by anything, you can search your deck for any 2 Lunalight monsters. This is a good way to gain advantage when you lose a monster by destruction. If Lunalights ever become too popular, it will be this card that gets hit by the Ban/Limit Hammer. It's good that the monsters destroyed don't have to be your own, nor do they have to go to the grave. I believe this even works if a token is destroyed. The cons come up when you look at all the cards that don't destroy that still remove your monster. You could also end up having no monsters on your field and this being completely useless. Lunalight Reincarnation Dance is good themed support for an only average theme. We'll see what happens. Have a nice weekend!
 
Score: 2.5/5 If only it worked off tributes. 
Art: 3/5 Not enough dancing.
