Hello Pojo Fans,
Galaxy Summoner starts off another Galaxy-themed week on Pojo, seems like we never can run out of cards to review from this archetype.
Standard-style Level 4 monster, LIGHT with 16001400 stats, Summoner gets you any “Photon” or “Galaxy” monster Special Summoned from the grave in defense when Summoner is summoned in any fashion. When you think of all the monsters that fall under those two archetypes…there’s A LOT to choose from. The high attack power dragons, obviously come to mind first. Even in defense mode, the ability to summon back a behemoth of an Xyz monster as just a beater is something more archetypes wish they could have. At base level it is a Link 2 or Rank 4 play without a cost, but you should be shooting big with Summoner.
Its ability to make another LIGHT monster Level 4 for the turn only solidifies the Rank 4 play previously mentioned. There are a few archetype Rank 4’s that exist outside the standard Rank 4 plays. Making Galaxy Serpent a Level 4 Tuner gets you to Level 8 Synchro plays, but it shouldn’t be underestimated how that first effect is the better one.
Galaxy Summoner is fantastic for either archetypes and a must. Getting a big body on the field is great, even if it is defense, and being an instant Rank 4 or Link 2 makes you a great card automatically. Good start to the archetype look this week.
Until Next Time
New Photon/Galaxy support headlines Photon Hypernova, so we’ll look at some of the new cards today by starting with Galaxy Summoner.
Galaxy Summoner is a Level 4 LIGHT Spellcaster with 1600 ATK and 1400 DEF. Stats aren’t terrible on a Level 4, LIGHT is always great, and Spellcaster is good. First effect triggers on Normal or Special Summon, letting you revive any Photon or Galaxy monster from your graveyard in Defense Position, besides another Galaxy Summoner. It’s good to get another body on board to help make a Rank 4 or go into your Link-2 for the archetype. It doesn’t really matter what the Level of the monster in the grave you revive is if you’re going to make a Rank 4, since this card can turn the Level of any other LIGHT monster into a Level 4, making a near guaranteed Xyz. Hard once per turn on each effect, something you will almost always see on modern archetype support. Galaxy Summoner is a fine card for reviving a monster to go into some Extra Deck play, with the Level modulation effect helping your options. It feels like a good addition to the Deck.
Advanced Rating: 3.5/5
Art: 3/5 Looks kinda close to Galaxy Cleric to me.
