Xyz Territory--A much needed Field Magic card for
the Xyz player, but this, in my opinion, doesn't do
what it should to warrant being played. It IS one
of the better Field Magics out there, but I think
you're better off without it. Xyz need a card like
this that allows them to attack or use their effects
without having to discard an Xyz Material. Now,
when an Xyz Monster Battles, not yours, but any, so
this works for the opponent too, the Xyz Monster
gains attack equal to its Rank x200. Say an average
of 800, going on most that you see (easy enough
anyway) would be Rank 3-Rank 5. That's a
respectable enough increase. Furthermore, if this
card would be destroyed, you can discard an Xyz
Material from an Xyz Monster you control to negate
that destruction. The protection is nice,
especially in a Format with triple Mystical Space
Typhoon. But this doesn't do enough to warrant
being played I'm afraid.
2/5 all around, it's nice enough support, but just
doesn't do enough
It is the age of Xyz summoning, so along those
lines we are going to look at a field spell card
that gives our Xyz monsters a boost. Xyz Territory
will boost our Xyz monsters by 200 attack and
defense. When I say our, I mean both you and your
opponent’s as it works on all Xyz monsters on the
field. As Xyz monsters tend to have great effects,
but not the greatest in attacks, this card could be
the answer. Steelswarm Roach for instance only has
1900 attack, but combined with this card, becomes
Let’s take a look at some of the other monsters
this card pumps up. Gachi Gachi becomes 2600, Leviar
2400, Dollka 3200, Laggia 3200, and Utopia 3300
attack. The card we reviewed a couple of weeks ago,
Thunder End Dragon becomes 4600 attack. Gem Knight
Pearl, a non-effect Xyz monster goes from 2600 atk
to atk and now has a use for its materials.
Decks that you might see this card in are Evols,
Rescue Rabbit, Tour Guide, and Wind-Up decks to name
a few. The only reservations that I have is that it
is a field spell card and you have to use your Xyz
monster’s materials to protect it. Personally, I
like to use Xyz materials for my Xyz monster’s
effects, but chances are that your monsters will
stay on the field longer with Xyz Territory on the
I really do not like field spell cards because
they are a negative 1 and become Heavy Storm, Black
Rose Dragon, and Judgment Dragon bait. This is why
you do not see people running equip cards and field
spells like Mystic Plasma Zone in their decks even
though they would work great in them. The ability to
protect itself from destruction and the ease of Xyz
summoning boosts its ratings.

An okay power boost for Xyzs that can protect
itself by sacrificing Xzy material cards. Xyzs are
pretty powerful monsters as it is, and this card can
net anywhere from an exta +200 to +1200 A & D. A
nice card to include in any Xyz deck, but that's the
only place you'll want to put it, as it takes up
valuable room in other decks.
Today, we have a card
exclusively for the Xyz, Xyz Territory!
This is a field spell (yes, you
may groan) that increases an Xyz monster’s attack by
200 x its rank when battling another monster. Now
field spells are not very attractive unless they
provide quick and one-sided advantage (such as Gates
of the Underworld). But it’s easy to underestimate
the amount of help this card provides.
Leviair, which only has 300
attack, increases to Monarch levels – 2400! Tired of
you Grenosaures not destroying more things? Xyz
Territory puts it at 2600. That’s more than capable
of overrunning Stardust Dragon and Iron Chain
Dragon. Utopia increases to 3300, far stronger than
the majority of Level 8’s you’ll see.
Territory even has a protection
clause. If it’d be destroyed by a card effect, you
can detach a material. This at will at least let you
keep it around for longer than usual.
Overall, I could definitely see
this being played in casual duels but not as much in
competitive duels. If you Xyz summon at least once
or twice a duel, this will be the card for you.
Traditional: 1.5/5 (I don’t
know when a field spell would be used here)
Advanced: 3/5 (for general Xyz support, but 4/5 if
you’re in a casual duel)
Art: 5/5 (For a rare, this is pretty awesome art.
Easily ultimate rare worthy)
