Kurikara DivincarnateStarlight

On paper, Kurikara has an incredibly powerful effect that lets it gain 1500 ATK for every attacking monster in the Opponent’s Monster Zone. These monsters need to be tributed in order to activate Kurikara’s effect. However, practically using this effect is a bit more complicated and might not work well in many scenarios.

Nonetheless, certain decks can benefit greatly from Kurikara provided they base their strategy around it. Besides this, Kurikara is a great collector’s item, and having it in your deck is definitely a flex.

Magnifica is arguably the strongest in the Exosisters Archetype that can only be summoned using two rank 4 Exosisters. She can attack twice in each battle phase, making her quite formidable. 

Her quick effect allows the player to detach one material from the card and banish one of the opponents’ cards. This can, in turn, ruin your opponent’s game strategy depending on the conditions.

Her abilities make her very effective against Graveyard heavy decks. Magnifica is often seen used alongside other exosisters in competitive play. The price tag on the card is justified due to its collection value.
