The week ends off with a long awaited evolution to Number 62 as he now becomes Number C62: Neo Galaxy-Eyes Prime Photon Dragon.

Number C62 is a Rank 8 LIGHT Dragon Xyz with 4000 ATK and 3000 DEF. Nothting really changed from yesterday, so no new comments really. The basic materials are  3 Level 8 LIGHT monsters, but that likely isn’t happening since this does have a summoning condition similar to Number C39: Utopia Ray or Number C32: Shark Drake Veiss, letting you Xyz Summon this by overlaying it on top of the original Number 62 and its Xyz Materials. Thankfully, unlike the other two cards mentioned, this card’s effects don’t require 1000 LP or less, making it live more often. At the start of the Battle Phase, you can detach a material from this card to let it make up to 3 attacks on monsters during that Battle Phase, helping with some damage output. Also, if this card has Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon as material, it gains the effects where it is unaffected by your opponent’s monster effects and it gains 200 ATK times the Levels and Ranks of the monsters attached to this as material. Getting Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon on this should be easy since you can just use it to initially summon Number 62 or use the Battle Phase effect to detach Afterglow Dragon to get Galaxy-Eyes on this and double its ATK while you’re at it, along with the boost it already has. Considering you might likely have 2 Level 8s and a Rank 8 as material, that’s 2400 ATK gained, or just 2 Level 8s or just 1 and a Rank 8 give you 1600 ATK. This feels like a much better OTK machine than Number 62, whether it has Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon as material or not, but it’s better if you do. You’re still likely to run this in Galaxy/Photon more than anything, but the damage this can do is pretty high.

Advanced Rating: 3.5/5

Art: 4/5 Now this looks a bit more distinct from Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon at the very least.

I missed a few days this week because of school, but you just know I had to cover Galaxy-Eyes’s new boss monster, Number C62: Neo Galaxy-Eyes Prime Photon Dragon (which I will simplify to simply Neo Prime). Similar to its predecessors, it’s a Rank 8 LIGHT Dragon Xyz monster, and being part of the Number archetype lets it take advantage of various Number support cards like Numbers Protect. While it can be summoned with 3 level 8 LIGHT monsters, it’s much easier to summon with its alternate condition, Xyz summoning it using a Number 62: Galaxy-Eyes Prime Photon Dragon instead. Naturally, Neo Prime has a beefy stat spread of 4000 attack and 3000 defense, which is to be expected for a big Rank 8 Dragon.

Neo Prime’s first effect lets you detach an Xyz material at the start of your Battle Phase to grant it three attacks on monsters during the Battle Phase. If your opponent happens to have three weak monsters in attack position, you can expect the duel to end very quickly, though I still question Konami’s aversion to simply letting monsters attack multiple times without monsters. Still, even if the opponent’s monsters are in defense, with 4000 attack (or more!), it would be rather difficult for your opponent’s board to survive the turn. Neo Prime’s other effect grants it two bonuses as long as it has the original Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon as an Xyz material. First, it is unaffected by your opponent’s monster effects, and second, it gains attack equal to the combined Ranks and levels of its Xyz material times 100. I don’t think it would’ve been particularly broken if it was just blanket towers protection, but it’s better than nothing at all (not that it needs protection when you’re going for the OTK). The second bonus effect, in tandem with the multi attack, is what makes Neo Prime an OTK machine; even with just two Xyz materials, it will likely have 5600 attack, running over every unboosted monster in the game. While I don’t think Galaxy-Eyes is as efficient as Cyber Dragon for OTK strategies, the new support certainly helps a lot; I just wish Neo Prime wasn’t so overbalanced.

Advanced: 3.5/5

Art: 4.75/5 One of the things Yugioh does best, big dragons!
