You can Special Summon this card (from your hand) by banishing 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK monster from your Graveyard. Once per turn: You can send 1 Dragon-Type monster from your hand and 1 Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to the Graveyard, then target 1 card in either Graveyard; banish that target.
Using Darkflare Dragon's second effect, you can discard a Red-Eyes monster from your hand or deck to the graveyard. This will make special summoning them through Red-Eyes Spirit much easier.
As long as this card gets sent to the graveyard, whether it's from your hand, field, or deck, you can special summon a Dragon-type monster from your hand.
You can discard a LIGHT or DARK Dragon-Type monster from your hand by using Divine Dragon Apocralyph's effect. By doing this, you will achieve faster the special summon requirement of Darkflare Dragon.
Darkflare's effect to send a monster from your deck to the graveyard can be treated as a search card if you are using cards that can bring them to the field, or to your hand.
You can use Darkflare's effect to banish a card from your opponent's graveyard to stop certain plays, or banish monsters so you can special summon them if you use certain cards.
Last Gamble would be useful in a deck that aims to summon this monster. When using the skill, discard LIGHT and/or DARK monster(s). Then, after summoning Darkflare Dragon, try to go for an OTK.
