"Dragon Spirit of White" also has a
Synchro Monster counterpart called " Blue-Eyes Spirit Dragon", who prevents both players from Special Summoning two or more monsters at the same time, locking down most Pendulum-based Decks.

Trade-In" or " Dragon Shrine" and revive it with the effect of " Gospel of Revival" or " Silver's Cry", you can then Normal Summon a Level 1 Tuner Monster and Synchro Summon a " Blue-Eyes Spirit Dragon" to prevent your opponent from Pendulum Summoning multiple monsters or, once per turn, from activating effects from their Graveyard.
"Spirit Dragon" can also Tribute itself for one of the recommended Level 7 LIGHT Dragon-type Synchro Monsters and then Synchro Summon "
Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon" if you have another Level 1 Tuner on the Field or if running " Mausoleum of White" can be done the same turn.

When you have two Level 8 Monsters,
Xyz Summon any " Galaxy-Eyes" Monster to Xyz Evolve into " Galaxy-Eyes Full Armor Photon Dragon", which can detach an Xyz Material to destroy any card and Xyz Evolution into " Number 95: Galaxy-Eyes Dark Matter Dragon"; if Summoned early enough can setup a good number of "Blue-Eyes" Monster combos from the Graveyard and can attack into the opposing Field with reckless abandon to test the enemy's defenses
If running "
Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon", Banish the first "Dark Matter Dragon" on the Field and use the effect of "Metal Dragon" to Special Summon the first "Galaxy-Eyes" Xyz Monster to Chaos Xyz Change into "Full Armor" and then "Dark Matter Dragon" to repeat the combination and effects twice in the same turn. This combination requires one or two "Full Armor Photon Dragons" and two "Dark Matter Dragons" in the Extra Deck, so it is not recommended to run this and "Neo Blue-Eyes" in multiples.
Common in both "
Dragon Rulers" before their banning, " Hieratic" Rank 8 Deck builds or any Level 8 Deck running " Soul Charge" and effects like it.
