General description:
Kuraz the Light Monarch is one of the 7 monsters archetype "Monarch", is level 6 Warrior type, the effect is as follows:
When this card is Normal or Special Summoned, you can destroy up to 2 cards on the field. For each card destroyed, that card's controller draws 1 card. This card cannot attack during the turn it is Normal or Special Summoned.

Its main use is to attack and destroy (obviously), but apart from that everyone sees, has several uses depending on the situation, after summon it and use its effect can activate Emergency Teleport to summon 1 Tuner Psychic Level 1 (level 7 Synchro Monster) , level 2 (level 8 Synchro Monster). While in the cemetery we can remove it with a Dark monster and Special Summon Chaos Sorcerer and we can tribute for Special Summon Turret Warrior with 3600 ATK.

After summon it we can use Double Summon or Ultimate Offering and tribute for another card as a Monarch to use effect and attack.

Like its effect is optional (you can), so we can choose between destroy 1 or 2 or not destroy any card. But equally we can not attack with him. We can also summon without tribute using Star Blast or Cost Down and also activate the effect.

Combos with other cards:
Kuraz the Light Monarch + Dandylion + Emergency Teleport: Destroy Dandylion and draw 1 card, Special Summon 2 Fluff Token activate Emergency Teleport Special Summon 1 level 2 Psychic Tuner and Synchro Summon a Mist Wurm.

Kuraz the Light Monarch + Protector of the Sanctuary: Destroy 2 cards of the opponent and the effect of the Protector of the Sanctuary prevent the opponent draws a card.

Kuraz the Light Monarch + Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys: We summon Kuraz and destroy the Phoenix, draw 1 card and the Phoenix returns Standby Phase to destroy all Spell/Trap Zone.

Kuraz the Light Monarch + Big Bang Shot: Equip Big Bang Shot to opponent's monster, summon Kuraz destroy the equipment and the equipped monster is removed, and draw.

Kuraz the Light Monarch + Cost Down + Plaguespreader Zombie: Activate Cost Down discarding Plaguespreader Zombie, Kuraz to be level 4, we summon Kuraz and destroy 2 cards, Special Summon Plaguespreader Zombie and Synchro Summon level 6.

Kuraz the Light Monarch + Lightning Vortex + Monster Reborn: Discard Kuraz to activate L. Vortex, then activate Monster Reborn to be reborn Kuraz and destroy 2 cards face down.

Kuraz the Light Monarch + Smoke Grenade of the Thief: Like Big Bang Shot but instead to remove, we can see the opponent's hand and discard 1 card.

Kuraz the Light Monarch + Appropriate: Destroy 2 of opponent and draw. If we destroy one's opponent and 1 our we can draw 3 cards.

Kuraz the Light Monarch + Call of the Haunted: When Kuraz in the graveyard, we can be reborn in the opponent's End Phase to destroy cards and in our turn to attack.

Pretty informative and good. Monarchs really are broken now b/c of the new support they've been getting.

Decently balanced while very disruptive. It's a shame that it can't attack when summoned.
