A series of LIGHT monsters who's effects are based on sending cards from the top of your Deck to the Graveyard, whether it be for a cost of a particular card or the effect of a Lightsworn monster. Due to the speed at which this archetype depletes the number of cards in your deck, running out of cards and decking out is always a risk. However, many of the Lightsworns are built for speed and ending the game quickly. In addition, the deck has a boss monster known as Judgment Dragon, which can basically reset the field and strike for heavy amounts of damage. If built correctly, sending cards from the top of your deck to the graveyard each turn will help the player much more than hurt him, and Lightsworn can be a deadly, and often frustrating, deck to be paired off against. A way to counter this is to use a removal deck, 'Banisher of Radiance' is useful because any cards sent to the graveyard are removed from play instead, if you activate 'Return from the Different Dimension' for half your LP you can Special summon your removed monsters.
