Since the release of Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s there has not really been an abundance of synchro monsters released, but out of the select few it may be hard to know which have the best and most practical effects. When constructing a deck that’s based around a synchro summon, it’s good to focus on a few monsters, and thus you should really know which synchro monsters pack the biggest punch in the Yu-Gi-Oh world!
Stardust Dragon – Ah ha, we have Yusei Fudo’s famous monster from the Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s anime and manga. Of course this card would be at the top of any list. Stardust dragon is a huge synchro monster that can be tough to put on the field due to its high level but the rewards are well worth it. Stardust Dragon can discard itself from the field to the graveyard to negate the effect of any monster, magic or trap card, then special summon itself at the end of the turn.
Another great advantage to Stardust Dragon is the fact that it requires no specific tuner monster in order to perform its synchro summon. This means you need any tuner monster + 1 or more non-tuners as long as their level equals Stardust Dragon. What this means is you don’t have to plan too specifically in order to summon Stardust Dragon. And with 2500 attack points this beast of the Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s world is defiantly one of the best synchro monsters on the circuit.
Red Dragon Archfiend – Ok now to be in contrast with Yusei we have his rival, Jack Atlas’s famous Red Dragon Archfiend! He’s a bit like Stardust Dragons big mean brother, with more attack and the same summoning requirements. When Red Dragon Archfiend attacks and destroys a monster in defense position he has the effect of killing all or your opponent’s monsters in defense position. This means that your opponent’s field will be clear for all you other monsters to attack directly and wipe out their life points!
Same as Yusei’s Stardust Dragon, Jack’s Red Dragon Archfiend has no specific tuning requirements, just 1 tuner + 1 or more non-tuners, as long as their stars equal the exact level as Red Dragon Archfiend. This makes Red Dragon Archfiend very easy to get onto the field, and he hits just a bit harder the Stardust Dragon, boasting an impressive 3000 attack points. Red dragon Archfiends high attack and wicked effect make him a very powerful and devastating synchro monster.
Junk Warrior – Another one of Yusei’s famous monsters, Junk Warrior is a rather easy synchro monster to obtain, but don’t think that makes him weak. Junk Warrior can be an incredibly powerful attacking monster, in the right deck. His effect gives him an attack boost equal to the total attack of all level 2 or lower monster you control once he’s summoned. This effect takes a bit of strategy to play effectively, but with an initial attack of 2300, and low level monster cards like Speed Warrior with 900 attack points, Junk Warrior can come onto the field more powerful then either Stardust Dragon, or Red Dragon Archfiend!
A difficult fact about Junk Warrior is that he requires a specific tuner monster, Junk Synchron, but no worries, with Junk Synchrons special ability you can automatically summon Junk Warrior from your synchro deck. The reason for this is that Junk Synchron special summons a level 2 or lower monster from your graveyard to your side of the field, and since Junk Warrior only requires 5 stars for a summon this is a perfect way to get him into play, or boost his attack!
Goyo Guardian – Ok last on the list here is one of the best synchro monsters in the Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s series, Goyo Guardian. He may not look like much but the Goyo Guardian has a really great effect, and a high attack. All of this plus he’s really easy to summon! When Goyo Guardian kills an opponent’s monster and sends them to the graveyard, they are special summoned onto your side of the field in defense position. That effect will give anyone using the Goyo Guardian a massive monster and field advantage.
Goyo Guardian also has a very high 2800 attack points. This means that almost any monster your Goyo Guardian faces down will be returning to your side of the field. Of course one of the greatest advantages of the Goyo Guardian is the fact that he requires no specific tuner monsters and is only a level 6 synchro monster! This makes Goyo Guardian a powerful addition to any synchro deck.
There’s still many more synchro monsters in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s but the above are some of the elite. They all have amazing abilities, and are defiantly worth the effort of putting together a synchro deck, and as the 5D’s series continues they are only going to get better. With a wide ray of support already introduced who knows what kind of surprises synchro decks will receive in the future. With cards like Stardust Dragon, and Goyo Guardian around synchro decks promise to be a force to be reckoned with, in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh.
