How good is this card? luckily enough, I got two copies of this one while building X sabers. Do you guys think it would be competitive in the future like ties of the brethen, etc?

3 copies of unexpected dai (aka the terminator card? xd). Seems a bit odd to me, dunno if it's worth getting, the only person I've seen playing 3 UDs is gunsblazing. But that guy loves to go against the rules, so u never know if it's going to work or not lol

If you're running Unexpected Dai, you should be running 3 of it. It's the kind of card that's most useful very early on, so you want to see it as soon as possible.

No. Nobody. Ever.
This is a good card even in the TCG. Getting a SS from the Deck can really matter in the early game.

some guys don't really play UD in their X-sabers build. Is there any deck beside sabers in which this spell would be any good? cause I have 3 :/

How much is Synchro still a thing in the TCG? I mean, does it even matter anymore now that there are more powerful mechanics out there?

Crystal wing synchro dragon is still a good card. And just like the person above me said, it depends on the card, not the synchro mechanic.

Let's just say that there's a reason why people keep asking for Crystron Needlefiber to be imported into TCG already.

Borreload Savage Dragon is actually a good powerful Synchro that I can see getting some use once it is released.

So...i saw someone using it kinda like emergency teleport in a x saber but he didnt have more than 1. My guess is dai into galaxy serpent and normal summon a lv4 x saber+synchro into hyunlei.
Oof I have one copy of this card but Stardust Dragon is still in the box so I can't reset. I wish I had 2.

Personally, I would reset if I were you.
Especially if you are aiming for 3 U-Dai. 1-2 Stardust should be more than enough in most cases.
Amazing card, really useful to synchro shokan your Hyunlei :D !
works with good with gemini and normal tuners

Geminis are treated as normal monster only when they're on the field or GY not in the deck; this will not work.
