Mozarta the Melodious Maestra is a level 8 Light-attribute Fairy-type monster with the following effect: “Once per turn: You can Special Summon 1 LIGHT FAIRY-Type monster from your hand. You cannot Special Summon other monsters this turn you activate this effect, except for LIGHT monsters.” She has 2600 ATK and 2000 DEF.
That last part is very important. You can still Special Summon LIGHT monsters. If you’re playing a deck focused around Fairies, you very likely are playing a lot of LIGHT-attribute Monsters anyway. Also, the idea of being able to Special Summon an Archlord Kristya and shut down further Special Summoning is pretty awesome.
What has happened to one of my favorite Fairy gals, anyway?
All gushing aside, Kristya hasn’t received very much love in recent years. The Melodious Monsters give me a bit more hope. Thing is, do you want to play a Level 8 Monster in a Fairy-type deck that doesn’t have any way to Special Summon herself? Actually, she CAN Special Summon additional copies of herself! There are plenty of ways to cheat out LIGHT monsters, especially. With Pendulum Summoning now becoming a major mechanic, there might be some good Melodious Pendulum monsters available, too, right?
Unfortunately, Duelist Alliance only has Aria the Melodious Diva and Sonata the Melodious Diva for us at the common rarity. However, they are decent cards. Aria’s effect is actually pretty decent. As long as she was Special Summoned, your “Melodious” creatures can’t be targeted by card effects or be destroyed by battle. That’s pretty sweet. Sonata, of course, is considerably better. If you control a Melodious monster already, you can Special Summon her from your hand. If she’s been Special Summoned (in any way) your Fairy-type Monsters (all of them!) gain 500 ATK and DEF! Wow. Talk about the beginnings of a good archetype! The problem is, so far, these are all we have.
Watch out for Mozarta and her Melodious friends. They might get fairly good someday!
