1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner Normal Monsters When this card is Special Summoned: Dragon-Type monsters you currently control cannot be targeted or destroyed by card effects until the end of the next turn. Once per turn, during your Standby Phase: You can target 1 Normal Monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that target.
Protects Dragon-type monsters from destruction effects.
Revives Normal monsters.
High leveled Synchro monster making it more costly to summon.
Revival effect activates during the standby phase meaning it cannot be used immediately.
The Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon's effect is activated when he is summoned in any way. This means that aside from Synchro summoning you can also activate the protection effect by reviving Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon.
Use this card in a Blue-Eyes deck where it can easily be Synchro summoned and maximize it's effect. The "Eyes of Blue" Archetype consists of level 1 Tuner monsters you can use alongside Blue-Eyes White Dragon to Synchro summon into Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon. You can also use The White Stone of Legend as a Tuner and search out a Blue-Eyes white Dragon when it is sent to the graveyard.
Gemini monsters are treated as Normal monsters while in the graveyard so you can revive them with Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon's effect. Since they were special summoned you can normal summon them again to gain their effects.
Actually Maiden only serves to boost this cards viability, as it's a level 1 Tuner that combos with Protector and Blue-Eyes White Dragon. And when they release Blue-Eyes Spirit Dragon, oh boy will this card ever see play. Spirit Dragon can directly combo into this card, being able to tribute itself to summon Azure-Eyes straight from your Extra Deck during your opponents turn without any drawbacks.
Any Normal Dragon + Any Tuner Monster whose total levels add up to 9. So for example, the otpimal way to summon it would be to have Blue-Eyes White Dragon + any level 1 Tuner, like White Stone of Legend or one of the Eyes of Blue Tuners monsters, but you can also summon it with for example, Red-Eyes B. Dragon + any level 2 tuner, like Galaxy Serpent.
God, I love this card. Just look at that Artwork! It's so far the only really reliable Synchro deck in the game, with the only contestors being X-Sabers or Power Tool Dragon, but who even plays those? Anyway this card is glorious, and it does wonders in my Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon Deck, being able to bring back my Blue-Eyes from the grave after being used for discard effects to search out Polymerization and such, and it also works with Dragon Spirit of White since it's treated as a normal monster in the grave. If only the protection effect was permanent.
Until the end of the next turn means exactly what it sounds like. Until the end of the turn following the turn the effect was activated. (Which will usually be the opponent's turn, yeah.) It could end on your own turn if you Summon it in the opponent's turn with a card like Dragon's Rebirth, though.
