DM-Wiki: Article

Mono-Light rush is a Monocolored Rush deck type.


It consists of lightweight creatures in the Light Civilization.

It is often focused on the Initiate race with Evolution Creatures such as Silence Topaz, or light creatures that cost 3 or less and Hand Addition with Southern Renaissance, Resonance Dragon Elemental.

■ Sympathy: Light creatures that cost 3 or less (This creature costs 1 less to summon for each of your Light creatures that cost 3 or less in the battle zone. It can't cost less than 1.)

Blocker Blocker

■ Double breaker

■ When you put this creature into the battle zone, you may draw a card for each of your Light creatures that cost 3 or less in the battle zone.

Mono-Light rush can bring a standard rush of low costing creatures to the battle zone, while at the same time reducing the chance of opposing removal with cards such as Sagrada Familia, Vizier of Instant Seal or Silence Topaz preventing your opponent from casting removal, defensive or hyperspatial spells that put psychic creatures into the battle zone.

■ While this creature is tapped, your opponent can't use the "shield trigger" ability of spells.

They can be cheaply evolved onto other creatures such as Gunes Valkyrie, Holy Vizier or Glais Mejicula, the Extreme, and many tap effects can allow you to tap and attack your opponent's creatures, or attack past their creatures that have blocker.

Cards such as Medaros, Purity Wings can provide resistance to your opponents removal, as well as tapping your opponents creatures, thanks to its Mana Arms.

■ Mana Arms 3: Whenever this creature attacks, if you have 3 or more light cards in your mana zone, choose one of your opponent's creatures in the battle zone and tap it.

■ Mana Arms 5: When this creature would leave the battle zone and has power 0 or more, if you have 5 or more light cards in your mana zone, this creature stays in the battle instead.

Light also features many blockers that can be used to counter other opposing rush decks.

It's weakness is despite that it is in a metagame filled with powerful spells (such as those found in Miramisu decks), it has difficulties against creature-filled decks.

Additionally, as Silence Topaz only stops spells that cost 4 or more during the players turn, a card such as Reckless Cut Scrapper can counter this deck when cast as a Shield Trigger Shield Trigger.
