You can use Gateway to Chaos to get Black Luster Soldier into your hand, and spell card later on after 3 spell counters. Beginning of heaven and earth can also be used to add Black Luster Soldier to hand or mill him to the graveyard.
Super Soldier Synthesis is a more cost efficient way to ritual summon Black Luster Soldier, but requires more specific tributes. Additionally can be used to ritual summon a Black Luster Soldier in your graveyard.
I'm putting BLS on the back burner until super soldier shield comes out. The new box just has to many monster removal cards and every time I lose I think how I would have won with super soldier shield.
2. This card is so goddamn expensive to pull more than 1 copy of that it's support cards aren't gonna come in handy to you if you're FTP since getting 3 copies of this guy to use in a deck is a nightmare.
Still like this card though, but it shouldn't be UR. They just did that so it could be the cover card.
Forget it, he used Djinn Disserere of Rituals, that made it inmune to SSA.. nice combo.
I love this card, but on it's own it does not deserve UR status. They only did that so it could be the cover card of it's box cause it's a recognizable classic card, but on it's own the card isn't that good, and wouldn't be worth the gems and money spent to get multiple copies if he doesn't get more support soon. And even if he did, good support is only good if you can actually get multiple copies of the card easily, which you can't.
Given they gave us Super Soldier Synthesis, you don't really NEED multiple copies, since it can Summon from the Graveyard. (And if you're using Black Luster Ritual instead, you might's well use a stronger Ritual Monster like Masked Beast or Shinato anyway.)
Why is this card a UR and Magician of Black Chaos is Rare.
Because they wanted it to be the cover card for it's box because it's a recognizable card. Making it an UR makes pretty much no sense because it's not a good card on it's own without support, and to effectively use it's support you'd probably need mutltiple copies, which is a shame since there's only 1 of him in each box and pulling him every time you reset the box is gonna be incredibly expensive
It must because it seems like a costly ritual bewd with way worse support cards. I don't see the point of ritual monsters that don't have effects. Sure you have a high attack guy but u just die to mirror wall.
I've been using him lately and ya with the lack of current support u gotta have djinn equipped to him. He's a pretty heavy hitter when equipped right tho.
Is the best strategy behind this card to get tons of power on the field as fast as possible and beat the opponent before he has time to set anything up. Seems like it's super easy and quick to get 2 of him on the field maybe even a swift Gaia too in the first turn may be possible with the right deal.
