So is this card overpowered? What defines overpowered? Well: -Is it easy to summon? Its requirement are heavy but there are ways to summon him very easily (especially with T.G. Librarian) -Effect? I think we can all agree this thing is beast in terms of effect. Plus if your opponent manages to get rid of him (with a ton of minuses), Shooting Star Dragon says hi, and even he is tough to beat, bar removal but you would have lost too much card advantage and resources, chances are you'll hate him more then SQD :P -ATK/DEF: Can't really ram this thing at all 4000 is tough to beat. -Seal? Pretty much a powerful lock down.
He often seals the game when used, so my question is will he be limited or banned. Because people only run one copy so limiting it is no use. My guess is they will try and nerf 'ways' to summon him (i.e. T.G. Librarian but even then one is enough to skyrocket. But there will always be new ways to summon him.
The best counter I know is Super Polymerization as I run a HERO deck. It steals their SQD and along you warrior monster to make Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste. Also SQD misses the timing to summon SSD because it is an optional effect. To add insult to injury you can remove their SQD from their grave to have an unstoppable Draco for the turn :) I forgot to mention Counter Traps, I guess they can work but they will only disrupt his arrival, I'm talking about if he finally gets out (Hint hint if they have a special Giant Trunade ready)
Play a bait card, like lightning vortex, that will force SQD to negate it, then play Soul Exchange. Tribute Quasar himself and summon Causis. Problem solved for Frog Monarch, Plant Monarch, and any other Monarch decks.
Also, I played a YGO game that has manga and anime cards and I beat SQD by using one of the planetary monsters' effect, triubte a monster and discard two cards to absorb it's power. It was lolzy 5 card combo. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:05, June 28, 2011 (UTC)
Shooting Quasar doesn't miss the timing for Shooting Star unless killed by something like Ryko which has an effect that activates immediately after it destroys cards. Shooting Quasar is like a Shi En but on steroids. The best way to beat him is to get it to negate something then use Dimensional Prison. If you're using T.G. try to destroy him then use the TG control switch card.BobaFett2 (talk)
wait doesnt he miss if he was super poly'd because at the time of his removal a monster was fusion summoned thus missing the optional effect? oh and what game had both anime+manga cards? Superboltboy (talk • contribs) 02:33, June 29, 2011 (UTC)SBB
Shooting Quasar Dragon missing the timing to Special Summon Shooting Star Dragon after it was used as a Fusion Material Monster by Super Polymerization is correct.
Just like Elemental HERO The Shining misses the timing when you use it as a Fusion Material.
