  • Destroys a card.
  • Mills your deck.


  • Milling your deck can be risky in decks that run single copies.
  • Flip effects can be slow.


  • Ryko is the most useful Lightsworn monster when put outside of a Lightsworn deck, so he is often the best choice for a deck that needs on-demand milling.


Lightsworns specialize in milling their own decks and gaining advantage off of it. Ryko can mill your deck while simultaneously destroying an opponent’s card.


Ryko can help put Archfiend monsters into your graveyard to be revived by Call of the Archfiend.
The combination of LIGHT and DARK monsters in your deck also potentially allow you to use monsters like Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Evening Twilight. Put in some Wulf, Lightsworn Beast to balance the LIGHT and DARK monsters.

Graveyard Effects

Here are some other cards that are only useful when in the graveyard, so you should send them there with Ryko’s effect.

Well, at least the text is finally updated. The pic is still the old one though XD
I wonder if Lighsworn would make a cool, popular meta deck.
So, if this card needs to target something on the field for it’s first effect, how come it can target Obelisk?

It can because you don't read the other anon's comment below.
Gamea still hasn't update this card, even though the official website has clearly shown that DL uses the latest errata (that changes the effect into non-targeting) XD

Ah, at least we know Gamea noticed the error and will fix it. Thank you :)

Also, don't forget to fix the one in the minibox's page as well ;)

Oh, so that' why it works against Slash Dragons. I'm running a Darklord deck with three Rykos and I found weird being able to destroy them when they had a warrior equipped. Doesn't make much sense since you're literally targeting a card, but ok.

never will be
This card is much more assuring rather than snipe hunter, which i believe is rigged sometimes.
Next is Debris dragon
Can't wait for another noob to call this card op.

.....which one
Flip is too slow, but can be good against samurais if they attack it. You may be able to avoid OTK

Set a card and when it's attacked it's flipped and the flip effect activates.
Gamea should update this article with the card's latest errata, if this card's really in the next minibox. The errata is a very important one, and DL always use the latest version.
