■ 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.)
■ 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.

How to Use this deck
The early strategy of the deck is to simply play low cost creatures to lead into the Sympathy ability of Southern Renaissance, Resonance Dragon Elemental.
There are many choices for early creatures to play, such as Schreiber, Vizier of Strictness to increase the cost of non-light spells or Murmur, Apostle of the Formation to increase the power of your creatures that have Blocker. Acroite, Start Dash can help bring out your other light creatures you summon by reducing their cost, and Baronarde, Glorious Wings can provide conditional mana acceleration.
Besides this, Sullivan, Guidance Dragon Elemental and Valhalla Knight, Domination Dragon Elemental can be used to control and swarm the battle zone. Silver Glory, Invincible Fortress can prevent even the lowest power of your creatures from losing battles.
If it is based on the DMD-23 Due-ma Start Deck: Miracle Bringer Light Civilization deck, it can push an evolution focus with Miracle Star, Lord of Dragon Spirits, Shildite, Holy Ball and Tatebue Yahho, Holy Heaven Guardian to provide shield addition.
Diamond Sword is used to allow newly summoned cheap creatures as well as creatures with blocker that cant attack to attack your opponent as a finisher.
As it is a Light/Water deck, mana acceleration is difficult and you can fall behind other control decks that might ramp themselves or destroy your mana or hand with cards such as Mana Crisis or Jenny, the Dismantling Puppet. However they can be stopped to a degree with cards such as Tigunus or Sido.
Due to the prevalence of weenie creatures in the deck, it is vulnerable to mass Power Based Removal. It can be weak against cards such as Bolshack Superhero, Liger Blade, Fierce Tiger, Puchohenza, Mia Moja or 5000GT, Riot, with the latter 2 locking up the decktype dead and thus usually forcing the player to surrender. Depending on the number of included creatures with blocker, it can also by vulnerable to Super Explosive Duel Fire and Genji Triple Cross, Passion Dragon and other Blocker Based Removal.
Your creatures can also be prevented from attacking by your opponent's blocker creatures that have higher power than them, forcing you to rely on tapping and freezing abilities to get attacks through.
