  • Similar to Skilled Red Magician, this card will not see much play because it does not fit in the same monster type that it is capable of Special Summoning (Archfiend monster for Skilled Red Magician).
  • Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight can be Special Summoned via this card’s effect.

To get the full benefit I have to run a gaia the fierce knight? Pass...

No. You simply need a card whose name counts as gaia the fierce knight. Swift gaia is one card that comes to mind and in a spell heavy deck it isn't too bad.

Swift Gaia is also the only other target we have in DL right now, since we don't have Arisen/Charging/Lord yet XD

We have charging now, will it work?
I like to use him in Silent Magician as his second skill helps giving Lv4 more Spell Counters. Plus with 1800 atk/def he's not a bad alternative if you're missing cards like Chow Len.
Even without using the effect it is still a decent Spellcaster Beater, especially useful for Auto Dueling with "Power of Dark" Skill.
Man been having bad luck with this, only one from the stage reward nothing from the draws, got around 7 dark sages I'm not going to use though
Deck for now til I get other needs like power grasp
Extra is 2 galloping gaia a reg gaia and a red eyes slash dragon.
For those who bought stuff from volume pack 1 there were 2 gaia related monsters in it if you got any then skilled is great to have as the new gaia fusion directly puts spiral to field plus when it attacks it switches the monster to defense you deal damage and draw thanks to spiral

Add in beast king is swamp and you can add poly to hand or use it to summon slash dragon with gaia.
Plus the new gaia is a material 1 dragon and 1 gaia monster so doesn’t have to be vanilla canbe Swift gaia

Handless is very fun, however they got powercrept out a long time ago, wished they were still viable.

Once we get Infernity, Handless decks will rise again, since Handless is the entire point of the archetype

Would Infernity be good in speed duel format? I remember back when those bastards could summon 3 Trishs and nuke the opponent.
Strong stats make it resistant to defense switching cards.
2k atk/def with power of dark, neat.
