You can normal summon Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight without a tribute. However, his original ATK becomes 1,900. This effect is useful for setting up powerful summons and establishing a monster on the field. Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight can destroy many low level monsters in battle. You may also use him as XYZ material to summon a Rank 7 monster.

Second Effect

You may add a monster with “Black Luster Solider” in its name from your deck to your hand after you tribute Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight. The effect adds consistency to a deck with Black Luster Solider. Consistency is the key to every deck’s success. You gain access to the deck’s main monster. Then, summon it if you meet its conditions.

Furthermore, there are many versions of Black Luster Solider to chose from. There are effect monsters of the legendary warrior and ritual monsters of him as well. This is a great effect for adding a ritual monster of “Black Luster Solider” to your hand. You may already have the ritual spell card. Then, you may summon the monster to the field if you meet the requirements.

In addition, Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight has a light attribute. You may play him in Chaos decks for Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning. These monsters have great synergy with each other. First, you may search for the legendary warrior. Then, you may banish Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight and a Dark monster from the graveyard to special summon Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning.
