About Starlight Road
Everyone is talking about how it's going to be THE response to Storm this format and how it will magically save your deck from destruction. Yes, it's a good card...but it's always been situational. Sorry to say this, but Road is still vulnerable to 3 MST or any other means of singular destruction.
Is it a good card to still use in a side deck? Yes, especially if you know the deck is destruction-heavy and will be of some use. But maining it, I'm not too sure.
Not just that, but it's still too easily countered by cards like Trap Stun, especially now that chainable traps are going to see more use.
But it's too early to tell, we need more time for the meta to develop.
But for now, those are my thoughts on the card. Good, but very situational. Overhyped defenses.
