Pros

  • Able to destroy 1 Spell/Trap your opponent controls.
  • Decent ATK stats.

Cons

  • Effect can be too slow to activate, and requires switching to Defense position.
  • Weak DEF stats susceptible to position switching plays.
    Requires you to discard 3 cards from your top deck to the Graveyard during each of your End Phase.

Tips

  • Generally her effects of destroying opponent’s Spell/Trap card are too slow compared to backrow removal cards that we already have in the current meta, such as Cosmic Cyclone, Nobleman of Extermination, and Gladiator Beast Bestiari’s effect.
  • Her effect also mills from your top deck, although it can help thining your deck, but you are not able to control this effect as it is a mandatory mill that may result in you decking out.
  • You can also choose to activate Forbidden Chalice during your End Phase, as a killswitch to stop the effect of sending 3 cards from your top deck to your Graveyard.

Synergy

Since Saffira’s effect activates during your End Phase as well, and it requires LIGHT monsters to be sent to the graveyard, Lyla can provide a good synergy as it will send 3 cards from your top deck to the graveyard every End Phase. Jar of Avarice can return 5 cards from your Graveyard back to your deck and allows you to draw 1 card. Pot of Benevolence can return a total of 2 cards from either player’s Graveyard back to their deck, and shuffle the deck.

Augmentation

A Field Spell that gains Counter for every “Lightsworn” monster sent from the deck to the graveyard, and increases 100 ATK of your “Lightsworn” monster for every counter on this card. You can also remove 2 counters from this card to protect it from being destroyed.

You're wrong. It's already in the game. Need about 2 years to be released.

And it's not broken anymore. Levianeer is much better.
Basically JD was dead on arrival

JD was never that broken in Yugioh. It supposed to be the boss monster of Lightsworn which is why it has awesome effect ( but not broken).
If any, it should be Charge of the light brigade to the point they limit it for quite a time in TCG

I remember there was a dragon type card which was part of the Lightsworn archetype, it was pretty op ! I wonder if it's released.

"it was pretty op"

isn't that clear enough

seriously, it's a 3k ATK monster that nuke everything except itself and still can attack afterwards, no way we'll ever get it in a 4k LP environment

How you phrase things can matter. That description applies to cards like Ocean Dragon Lord - Neo-Daedalus and Steelswarm Hercules, too. ;p

Granted, JD is too easy to use to be acceptable here. But still, just "3k nuke that can attack after" is a terrible argument.

"Judgement dragon? Hell no it won't be available"

And then we get 3 copies immediately due to it being released in a main box lol

Definetly not. Hit top 500 in region B without a single copy of it playing Spellbooks

love this card in archfiends, the backrow removal effect is awesome too, can backfire easily though
rate 9/10
This card seems to be highly versatile cuz it can be used as a decent backrow removal and I've seen plenty of spellbook kog decks using it.

it's great for a 4 star card both effects are decent and 1700 atk is not bad at all.
...
Funny thing this card is kinda popular in Archfiend decks and not in Lightsworn ones.
