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

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
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..
