Re: Covenant With the Lightsworns- My Lightsworn deck

Assuming this is the deck we are looking at, it currently costs about 115 dollars to make. Given that price range, I will also assume this is something meant for locals, and my card suggestions will be within twenty dollars' budget.

I've played it about a dozen times. The deck's biggest issue is the opening hand has trouble getting the opening mills and its boss monsters almost never hit the field. Almost all of the wins were piggybacked off of Judgment Dragon hitting the field off of sheer luck.

Minerva never actually resolved her Normal Summon effect.
Garoth was too difficult to keep on the field to resolve his effect.
Gragonith did not have time to be Normal Summoned.

Reinforcement of the Army only has two targets in the deck.

Armades almost never hit the field.
Black Rose Dragon also never hit the field, and its effect is a worse Judgment Dragon.
Stardust Dragon has difficulty hitting the field at an appropriate time.
Mist Wurm was never Summoned, nor was there a time to.
Utopia only had one instance where he was a strong option, but the duel was lost anyways.
Constellar Omega felt completely useless.
Queen Dragun Djinn is a worse Daigusto Emeral.

Here are the changes I made to the deck:


Monster List (27): $12.65
3x Blue-Eyes White Dragon - $0.50 ea.
2x Card Trooper - $0.10 ea.
1x Ehren, Lightsworn Monk - $0.10 ea.
1x Honest - $0.10 ea.
3x Judgment Dragon - $0.25 ea.
2x Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner - $0.10 ea.
2x Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress - $0.15 ea.
2x Minerva, Lightsworn Maiden - $0.25 ea.
3x Raiden, Hand of the Lightsworn - $2.25 ea.
2x Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter - $0.10 ea.
3x The White Stone of Legend - $0.25 ea.
3x Wulf, Lightsworn Beast - $0.10 ea.


Spell List (13): $4.15
3x Cards of Consonance - $0.15 ea.
1x Charge of the Light Brigade - $0.10 ea.
3x Monster Reincarnation - $0.10 ea.
3x Solar Recharge - $0.35 ea.
3x Trade-In - $0.75 ea.

Extra Deck: $107.85
1x Ancient Fairy Dragon - $0.15 ea.
1x Goyo Guardian - $7.20 ea.
2x Michael, The Arch-Lightsworn - $0.35 ea.
1x Star Eater - $4.00 ea.
1x Thought Ruler Archfiend - $1.35 ea.
1x Vulcan the Divine - $3.50 ea.
2x Daigusto Emeral - $20.85 ea.
1x Gagaga Cowboy - $3.25 ea.
1x Kachi Kochi Dragon - $3.45 ea.
1x Lavalval Chain - $29.00 ea.
1x Number 49: Fortune Tune - $3.65 ea.
1x Number 50: Blackship of Corn - $8.90 ea.
1x Wind-Up Zenmaines - $1.00 ea.

$124.65 to Create

I only managed to play one match with these changes, but it went 2-1 against a deck that the original variant went 0-8 against.

Please keep in mind these recommendations are under the assumption that this deck is being played at locals, and its budget is as such. If you can afford it, I highly recommend cutting Kachi Kochi Dragon for Castel, the Skyblaster Rocketeer.



Overall, it was a fun deck to play, and the Blue-Eyes engine can create some very silly situations. Great laughs were had playing it.

Also might wanna take note that honest will be semi limited at the end of this month, so ya could consider going for two of em.

Plus what of starliege paladynamo?
Ya got plenty of lvl 4 light monsters so it could be a good card for the extra deck.

Finally ya got mathematician. Ik it's a bit .....expensive, but it's still a better option than card trooper so if ya happen to have one I say go for it.

1 Gragonith, Lightsworn Dragon
1 Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner
1 Raiden, Hand of the Lightsworn

from this list of monsters to add a bit more consistancy I would change the following:
-1 Gragonith +1 Lumina: Reason being Lumina helps you get off synchro, xyz, and spam plays which make lightsworn without Judgment Dragon a bit more playable.

-1 Ryko +1 Raiden: Reason for this while Ryko can deal with pesky cards Raiden makes the deck much faster and easier to manage. Not only that be he can help you go for Micheal plays which does 1 better than Ryko and banishes the card instead of destroying it.

-1 Lumina +1 Honest: Reason for this While again Lumina deals with pesky cards you don't need 2 since by the time you use it then you're done with that card and you're going to xyz or synchro with it or it just gets destroyed. Instead place an Honest in there for some attack boosts that will help you get over problem monsters that you normally wouldn't be able to get over.

Im not very good at Lightsworns. What if I replace Raiden entirely with Felis? And I also add some Plaguespreader and Glow-up Bulbs for added tuning?

To be honest if you wanna get better with lightsworns the person to speak with is Razren. I'm not the greatest with them either. However Raz uses lightsworns and only has 1 JD in his deck yet OTKs almost every single duel.

My problem with J.D. is I think he's the kind of card where if I use him, I either have to focus on him, or not use him at all.

Oh, and I didn't notice everyone else's suggestions until now. @Collin- well, I'm not only going to use them for locals; they'll be for special occasions in general. And I want to use the structure decks as the base.

Re: Covenant With the Lightsworns- My Lightsworn deck

Post by Dullahan on Mon Dec 29, 2014 5:39 pm

So I went out and bought 3 of the Lightsworn structure deck, and built a deck from only the cards they had, and this was my result:

Monsters- 24:
1 Celestia, Lightsworn Angel
1 The Fabled Cerburrel
1 Honest
1 Jain, Lightsworn Paladin
3 Judgment Dragon
1 Lightray Daedalus
2 Lightray Diabalos
2 Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner
2 Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress
1 Minerva, Lightsworn Maiden
1 Necro Gardna
3 Raiden, Hand of Lightsworn
2 Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
3 Wulf, Lightsworn Beast

Spells- 11
1 Charge of the Light Brigade
1 Foolish Burial
1 Lightsworn Sanctuary
3 Monster Reincarnation
2 Realm of Light
3 Solar Recharge

Traps- 5
1 Beckoning Light
1 Breakthrough Skill
2 Glorious Illusion
1 Vanquishing Light

Extra Deck- 3
3 Michael, The Arch-Lightsworn

The deck does very well, and only lost twice: to my brother's Gravekeeper's, cuz he got really lucky with his draws; and to my Geargias, cuz they survived a triple J.D. barrage by toolboxing multiples of Swift Scarecrow. I'm pretty happy with the results.
