Personal Comment:
There are two major problems with Illumiknight.  One, the summoning requirement is rather difficult for a Rank 4 monster.  Two, the card effect doesn't offset the summoning requirement.  Is it really worth sacrificing 3 level 4 monsters to have the ability to send 1 card from your hand to the Graveyard and draw 1 card?  In addition, you will need a card like Plaguespreader Zombie in your hand (or a card that thrives in the Graveyard) to make sending a card to the Graveyard beneficial.  Tough to summon, tough to play, and the effect isn't game changing.  But since this Blog is about "featured" cards I must say something good to justifiy my reason for writing about it.  The 2400 ATK and 2400 DEF are decent stats.  In addition, Illumiknight is pretty cheap to purchase right now and it's worth adding to any collection.  I would just hold off on using it in a duel right now.
