When this card is Normal Summoned: You can choose either 1 or 2, then excavate that many cards from the top of your Deck, send any excavated Plant-Type monsters to the Graveyard, also place the other cards on the bottom of your Deck in any order. If this card is excavated from the Deck and sent to the Graveyard by a card effect: You can target 1 monster on the field; destroy that target.

  • Can destroy your opponent's monster if excavated and sent to the grave.
  • Optional effect to excavate 1 or 2 cards from your deck.


  • Effect to excavate only activates when it's normal summoned, which can backfire if you don't excavate any useful cards.
  • Effect to destroy your opponent's monster only works when it's excavated and sent to the graveyard.
  • 1500 attack and low defense.
  • Excavated non plant type monsters will get sent to the bottom of the deck.


Sylvan monsters have effects that excavate and send plant monsters to the graveyard, and Komushroomo can excavate up to 5 cards. Magical Merchant can also work well since it excavates and sends to the graveyard, possibly more than Komushroomo but with a potential to be lower. Being able to excavate multiple cards can potentially turn a duel around if you manage to excavate multiple Komushroomo or Marshalleaf.

Rose Lover is a really good card to put in a plant deck since it allows you to special summon higher level monsters much easier. Raging Mad Plants is a quick-play type spell that can be used in the damage step. You get higher attack increase the more plant type monsters you have in your graveyard. Amarylease is similar to Rose Lover, except you still have to use your normal summon.

It's better to make a sylvan deck with less spell and trap cards, but if you feel like you want to play it safer, you can use Jar of Avarice or Pot of Benevolence to prevent milling yourself out.

Not really, as the entire point of Sylvan does not match with what Black Rose Dragon does.

You'll want Sylvans to be excavated from the deck, not destroyed from the field.
And BRD's second effect does not help Sylvan either as you'll want to return them to the deck so you can reuse them. BRD banishes them instead.

Semi-limit the carrot and unban this card for sylvans to be back in the meta.

The entire points was to kill them, nobody wants them back in the meta, including Konami who prefers you buying the latest boxes instead.

Not to mention semi-limiting Carrot also further kill other Plant decks.
I am trying to make a deck with this + rose lover. It doesn't let me put 2 of both though. Why?

semi-limitation works different from the normal tcg in duel links, you can only play 2 copies from all semi and 1 from all limited cards.
