Synchro Summoning methods

  • In a "T.G." Deck, it is possible to Summon it through the use of 1 "T.G. Wonder Magician", 1 "T.G. Recipro Dragonfly" and 1 "T.G. Hyper Librarian".
  • Yusei-themed Decks can Summon this card using many different combinations, such as 2 "Junk Warriors" and 1 "Formula Synchron" or "Junk Gardna", "Turbo Warrior" or "Drill Warrior" with "Armory Arm" and "Formula Synchron". Cards such as "Unknown Synchron" and "Salvage Warrior" also helps this type of Deck to Summon this card quickly.
    • If you have a "Quickdraw Synchron", "Level Eater" and a "Synchron Explorer" in your hand, you start by Special Summoning "Quickdraw Synchron" by discarding "Level Eater". Then use the effect of "Level Eater" to Special Summon it from the Graveyard. Next tune "Quickdraw Synchron" to "Level Eater" to Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior". Summon "Synchron Explorer" and revive "Quickdraw Synchron". Special Summon "Level Eater" (decrease the Level of "Junk Warrior"), and Synchro Summon "Road Warrior". Use its effect to summon a Level 1 Tuner monster. Decease the Level of "Road Warrior" to Special Summon "Level Eater" and Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron". Decrease the Level of "Road Warrior" again to Special Summon "Level Eater". "Road Warrior" is now Level 6, "Junk Warrior": Level 4, and "Formula Synchron" Level 2, which will allow you to Synchro Summon this card.
    • Alternatively, Normal Summon "Junk Synchron", Special Summon a Level 1 Tuner with its effect. Hence, Special Summon "Doppelwarrior" with its own effect. Synchro Summon "T.G. Hyper Librarian" using "Junk Synchron" and "Doppelwarrior", summoning 2 "Doppel Tokens". Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron" with the Level 1 Tuner and a "Doppel Token". Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior" using "Level Eater" and "Quickdraw Synchron" as above. Synchron Summon "Shooting Quaser Dragon".\
    • (Traditional Format/OCG only) This strategy uses "Unknown Synchron", "Quickdraw Synchron", "Foolish Burial", "Level Eater" and "Monster Reborn" in hand: Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior" as above. Normal Summon "Unknown Synchron", "Foolish Burial" on "Dandylion" for 2 Level 1 "Fluff Tokens". Tune "Unknown Synchron" and 1 Token for "Formula Synchron". Special Summon "Eater" (reduce "Junk" to 4), Use "Monster Reborn" on "Quickdraw Synchron", tune "Quickdraw" with either "Eater" or the remaining Token for "Drill Warrior". Synchro Summon this card with "Formula", "Junk" and "Drill" (1 "Eater" or Token leftover).
  • In a "Fabled" Deck: Special Summon "The Fabled Nozoochee" by discarding "The Fabled Ganashia". Special Summon "The Fabled Cerburrel" through the effect of "Nozoochee". Special Summon "The Fabled Chawa" by discarding "Fabled Lurrie". Normal summon "Fabled Kushano". Tune "Nozoochee" with "Cerburrel" for "Armory Arm". Tune "Ganashia" and "Kushano" for any Level 6 Synchro Monster. Tune "Chawa" with "Lurrie" for "Formula Synchron".
  • If your opponent controls a monster(s) and you control no monsters, you can Synchro Summon this card in one turn if your hand contains the following: "Unknown Synchron", "Boost Warrior", "Machine Duplication" and "Reborn Tengu."
    • 1) Special Summon "Unknown Synchron" via its effect. Activate "Machine Duplication" to Special Summon 2 more from your Deck. (NOTE: The other copies MUST be in your Deck for this to work.)
      • You can substitute "Machine Duplication" with "Inferno Reckless Summon", provided that the monster(s) your opponent controls are face-up.
    • 2) Normal Summon "Reborn Tengu".
    • 3) Tune 1 "Unknown" with "Reborn Tengu" for "Hyper Librarian." Special Summon another "Reborn Tengu" from your Deck when the first one leaves the field.
    • 4) Tune another "Unknown" with the other "Reborn Tengu" for any Level 5 Synchro Monster. Draw 1 card via the effect of "Hyper Librarian."
    • 5) Special Summon "Boost Warrior" via its effect. Tune it with the last "Unknown" for "Formula Synchron". Draw 2 cards with its effect and the effect of "Hyper Librarian."
  • Interestingly, this card can be summoned in an "Infernity" Deck using just "Infernity Mirage" and a few cards from your Graveyard. Do not use "Hyper Librarian" for the Level 5 Synchro Monster.
  • You can Summon this card in your first turn in a "Laval" Deck with "Molten Conduction Field", "Rekindling" and a Level 1 non-Tuner monster in your hand, this way:
    • 1) Activate "Molten Conduction Field" and send "Laval Magma Cannoneer" and "Laval Volcano Handmaiden".
    • 2) With "Handmaiden" send a second "Handmaiden", with it send a third and finally send a second "Cannoner".
    • 3) Activate "Rekindling" and Summon all your "Laval" monsters, then tune 2 Level 5 monster like "Hyper Librarian" and "Laval Dual Slasher" with "Cannoneer" and "Handmaiden".
    • 4) Summon your Level 1 monster, to do this use better "Boost Warrior" or "Searing Fire Wall" or the like, that way you don't use your Normal Summon;
    • 5) Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron" with your Level 1 monster and the last "Handmaiden", then Synchro Summon this card.
    • With the above strategy, you can Summon this card with 3 attacks if you also have "One for One" and "Level Eater" in your hand, and also draw 5 cards, this way:
      • Do the same step 1 to 3 of the above strategy and tune "Hyper Librarian" and "Laval Dual Slasher" (and draw 1 card with "Librarian").
      • 4) Synchro Summon "Laval Dual Slasher" with the last "Handmaiden" in any Synchro Level 6 (like "Lavalval Dragun", to set some other combo) and draw 1 card, that way you set the grave with 3 different "Laval" monsters ("Cannoneer", "Handmaiden" and "Slasher");
      • 5) Activate "One for One" sending "Level Eater" to Graveyard to Summon "Soaring Eagle Above the Searing Land";
      • 6) Use the effect of "Level Eater" on your Level 6 monster to Special Summon it from the Graveyard, then Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron", draw 2 cards and Summon "Eagle" with its effect.

Uses of Shooting Quaser Dragon

  • Use this card against "Monarch", "Dragunity", "Junk" Decks and other archetypes that are heavily dependent on Normal Summoning monsters to gain effects.
  • This card can create a mini-lockdown when played with "T.G. Halberd Cannon", as you will be able to negate the first Summon and first effect the opponent plays each turn, meaning that they will have to sacrifice many cards to remove the monsters from the field.
  • If you have conditions to Xyz Summon "Baby Tiragon", do it and activate "Falling Current" to make this card a Level 1 monster and then use the effect of "Baby Tiragon" to allow it to attack directly.
  • Use "De-Synchro" to have this card leaving the field and be able to Special Summon "Shooting Star Dragon", then Synchro Summon it again.
    • Don't forget that for this combo to work, any of the Synchro Monsters used to Synchro Summon this card cannot be Nomi monsters and must be able to be Special Summoned by other ways and not only through Synchro Summon.
  • Because this card can only negate one Spell/Trap/Monster effect once per turn, it is important to have a face-down such as "Dark Bribe", "Breakthrough Skill", etc, in case your opponent has more than one dangerous effect they can use on the same turn.
  • Equip this card with "Silver Wing" and you will be ridiculously hard to stop. It would take either 2 destruction effects or 3 attacks from a monster(s) with over 4000 ATK and even if your opponent somehow pulls that off, they'd still have to deal with your "Shooting Star Dragon" which is still hard to destroy even though it's not as powerful as this card.
  • Activate "Shadow Impulse" when this card is destroyed by battle or card effect, and Special Summon a "Red Nova Dragon", in addition to the "Shooting Star Dragon" you get from the effect of this card.
  • In a "Nekroz" deck, you can Special Summon "Shooting Star Dragon" by using the effect of "Nekroz Kaleidoscope" to send this card from your Extra Deck to your Graveyard and Ritual Summon 2 copies of "Nekroz of Brionac". Overlay the "Brionacs" to Xyz Summon "Inzektor Exa-Beetle", and equip this card in your Graveyard to "Exa-Beetle" via its effect for a potent beatstick. When this card leaves the field, you can Special Summon "Shooting Star Dragon" from your Extra Deck. You can even send this card to the Graveyard yourself with "Exa-Beetle's" own effect to facilitate this.


  • Because your opponent will be very likely to use up a lot of resources to bring this card out, try to use Summoning negation effect(s) upon its Summon instead of the Summon of its Synchro Materials.
