|This month's featured card is the red X-Rare The SengokuDragon Souldragon-Flash. It was released as a promo card in Battle Spirits Burning Soul Wafers, but don't let its origins fool you; Souldragon-Flash is a devastating card for your opponent.
To begin with, its statistics are almost exactly the same as the regular SengokuDragon Souldragon. It has a cost of 7 with 4 red reduction, and its level core/BP progression is the same too. The only marked differences are that Souldragon-Flash has no LV4, and is a Flash Dragon instead of a Lord. As both a Flash Dragon and a War Dragon, Souldragon-Flash can be easily be used in decks of either type.
At LV1, Flash has the rare ability Consecutive Blade, which has been portrayed in the anime numerous times. By sending Soul Core from the Spirit to the trash, the opponent must block with two of their Spirits and have two simultaneous battles. With Flash's high BP, it's more than likely that you can overpower most opposing Spirits. To increase your BP, a brave like The ShineDragon Shine-Blazer or The FlameDragonKatana Onimaru might be suitable.
Souldragon-Flash's second effect is significantly more Flash Dragon-like: all opposing Spirits and Ultimates destroyed through its Consecutive Blade have their core sent to the void. Even a single core's differerence can mean a world of change to a card battler's strategy. If you surprise your opponent with Flash, you can take enough core from them that they can't make a next move.
An excellent support card for this is Haganewurm. You'll be able to target attack whatever card has the most core and wipe your opponent's supply dry. Of course, it isn't invincible -- Flash can be easily stopped by flash. Just increase the BP of a blocker or take away core from your own cards to save yourself from its onslaught.
The cards that go with this card highly depend on what type of deck you're going for. If you want to use it in a War Dragon deck, it fits easily into the basic structure. For a Flash Dragon deck, while it isn't compatible with The Wandering Sky Temple, it still has great synergy with The Prelude to Destruction and Ryuuman-Vulca. You could even surprise your opponent with it in a red/purple rush deck, using Soulhorse for reduction. While it isn't usable everywhere, Souldragon-Flash is still versatile enough to be a powerful weapon with the right support.
