  • Great ATK stats and strong DEF stats.
  • Adds 1 Spiral Spear Strike from Deck or Graveyard to your hand upon Special Summoning.
  • Upon attacking opponent monster, you can choose to change their battle position during Battle Phase.
  • Flexible Fusion conditions, you can use any Dragon-type monster as one of the required materials.
  • You can use Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight as Fusion material.


  • May consume resources and draws to perform Fusion summon.


  • You can also use Kidmodo Dragon as a Fusion material from your hand. Once Kidmodo is sent to the Graveyard, you can Special Summon another Dragon-type from your Hand in addition to your Sky Galloping Gaia the Dragon Champion, but you cannot attack during that turn.
  • You can also use tech cards like Powerful Rebirth, if you are using a level 4 Dragon-type monster as Fusion material, to bring back that monster to the Field.


With this card on the Field, Curse of Dragonfire acts as 1 of the Dragon-type monster for the Fusion materials, and you can use another 1 of the monsters on you Field, to Fusion summon Sky Galloping Gaia the Dragon Champion, without using Polymerization. The challenge however, is to summon Curse of Dragonfire out, as it will require 1 monster for a Tribute Summon.

Fusion Support

You can use these cards to support your Fusion actions. Fusion Recycling Plant can recycle 1 fusion material monster to your hand, and also search for Polymerization from your deck. King of the Swamp can be treated as 1 fusion material required for Fusion Summon, and at the same time it also can be used to search 1 Polymerization from your Deck. Fusion Sage can search 1 Polymerization from your deck.

Archetype Support

Gateway to Chaos is able to add 1 Gaia the Fierce Knight from your Deck to your hand upon activation. Beginning of Heaven and Earth is able to mill out your Deck for Gaia the Fierce Knight to be added to your hand. Spiral Spear Strike is a Spell card that supports the monsters in this archetype to deal piercing damage, additionally for "Gaia the Dragon Champion" monsters, they can draw 2 cards, discard 1 card upon using this piercing effect.


You can use “Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight” as 1 of the Fusion Summon material for Sky Galloping Gaia the Dragon Champion.

Please tell me you didn't wasted your gems for this pathetic card on the useless burning nova packs instead of just buying the master of chaos structure deck.
Why can't I fusion summon this monster using 1 Goddess of the Third Eye and a Red-Eyes Black Dragon?

It does not replace Buster Blader anymore.
I have Buster Whelp , Destruction Swordsman Fusion and Goddess with the Third Eye in my starting hand going first. And I cannot fusion summon Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman. Any advices??

It's because of the ruling change in the OCG. You cannot use Substitutions with DSF or Red-Eyes Fusion anymore.
You can’t use King of the Swamp with this, I’ve tried. It’s because it’s fusion condition is “One Gaia the Swift Knight Monster”, which is not a specific monster. It’s pretty stupid and ruined a bunch of my plays Lol
This card is haunting me...i got 5 now and 4 if his stupid dragon.and the box im currently opening still have 2 in it.

I know that feeling.

Valiant Souls feels like it forces me to play Fabled with how many Soulkius I got from guaranteed SR campaign.....

And now Burning Nova feels like it's doing the same thing to me with Gem-Knight Fusion for Gem-Knight deck.

*Although, I also got a Puddingcess from guaranteed SR campaign when I bought some more Burning Nova packs, so I guess Burning Nova isn't as evil as Valiant Souls
What the f is this

It's a "Gaia the Dragon Champion" that's actually useful.
it doesnt work for me
This card is definitely fun, I ran 3 Gaia in basically a red eyes deck with 3 birthright and it got me a couple platinum wins, overpowering the field with 2000+ attack monsters early on is great, and as many times as you can summon them from the graveyard is great.. Tribute of the doomed would also work out. Must summon early
Deck I built around this card:
Skill : Restart

3x King of the Swamp
2x Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight
3x Gaia the Fierce Knight
3x Curse of Dragon
1x Tribute to the Doomed
3x Polymerization
1x Fusion Recovery
1x Spiral Spear Strike
1x Enemy Controller
1x Beginning of Heaven and Earth
1x Windstorm of Etaqua

Extra Deck:
1x Sky Galloping Gaia the Dragon Champion
3x Gaia the Dragon Champion
1x Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman

Not a perfect deck. Open to any suggestions.

How are you meant to summon Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman without Buster Blader?

King of the Swamp can substitute for Buster Blader
This card is still useless against the meta nowadays

It is a good card, and great against the backrow heavy Meta that we actually have, you are underestimating it. lemme give you an example:
You Summon that guy, use its effect to add a spiral from your deck, you activate the spiral and if u do piercing damage you can draw 2 cards, and that will allways be the case cause when u atack you can change the oponents monster battle position. not tier 1 but

You're talking in a situation if the attack goes through, which does not happen 90% of the time.

He did say it's not tier 1. If you use it against SD or gold and below, you can still put up a fight. Kinda fun deck this actually is
This is why they gave out spiral spear strike but nobody took it I guess

If you have 3 of this, then only 1 Spiral Spear Strike is enough.
I made a descent Gaia deck using this card here is the formula. Character Yugi. Skill restart. 3 Gaia, 1 swift Gaia, 3 Curse of Dragon, 1 Vanguard, 1 Red Eyes Wyvern, 3 Polymerizations, 2 e cons, Gateway to Chaos, Spiral Spear Strike, Mirror Wall, Wall of Disruption, 2 Gaia the Dragon Champions, 1 Sky Gallopinng Gaia.Anti Magic Arrows. I think I'm missing a card. ill check later.

Not really worth playing if you only have 1 copy of sky gaia. And instead of crappy curse of dragon why not run red eyes variant instead. Sky gaia + red eyes fusion monster/ dragon buster blader; materials you can use red eyes + vanguard/ mirage dragon etc. And with fusion plant you can re-use/ recycle your dragon like mirage dragon.. for better synergy you can even tech in dark flare dragon but..

... But by this point the deck would be a bit messy and bricky. However once you pull of combo with sky gaia and draw 2 discard 1 combo, you are gaining superb upper hands
This guy would be good in a busterblader dragon deck.
