Number 83: Galaxy Queen, continues the week, and is
one of the more interesting XYZ Monsters out there.
Galaxy Queen is a Rank 1 XYZ Monster, XYZ Summoned
by three Level 1 Monsters, with 500 attack and
defense. This a Dark attributed, Spellcaster type
Monster. Now, Rank 1, and requiring three Level 1
Monsters, very likely to be all Tuners, we would
expect a big effect. By discarding an XYZ Material
Monster, until your opponent's End Phase, face-up
Monsters you control cannot be destroyed by Battle.
Furthermore, if your Monsters attack defense
position Monsters, they gain the ability of Trample.
This isn't a bad card at all, but I would say it
might get overshadowed by the fact that Galaxy Queen
doesn't destroy, it merely protects.
Number 83: Galaxy Queen requires 3 Level 1
monsters that can easily be brought out by a myriad
of methods. There are plenty of level one machine
monsters that will work great with Machine
Duplication, including a card we have already
reviewed, Cyber Larva. Add to that, Unknown Synchron,
Cyber Valley, and Turbo Booster and Machine
Duplication will get to that Galaxy Queen fast.
Another deck that can utilize Galaxy Queen easily is
Frog type decks running Treeborn Frog, Battle Fader,
and Effect Veiler. Inferno Reckless Summon can speed
it along even faster. Heck, even Naturia Cherries
can get most of what we need to make the Queen. And
the list keeps going. We haven’t even touched on
some of the new cards coming out in the next set,
like Photon Veil.
So the big question is, is it worth going through
all this hassle to bring Galaxy Queen out? I’m not
so sure. For one thing, the monsters that cannot be
destroyed by battle have to be on the field when you
summon her. Chances are that she will be the only
monster on the field and at 500 attack and defense;
she is not going to do much good except for
defending for three turns. With all of the
destruction and bouncing we have in the game, she
will probably not even last that long.
I’m sure there are some pretty nifty tricks out
there somewhere, ether now or with the next set, but
I just do not see it.
The middle of the week brings us to Number 83:
Galaxy Queen in our preview of Photon Shockwave.
This monster is the first Xyz monster that is a
spellcaster type. Galaxy Queen is a Dark, Rank 1 and
needs 3 level 1 monsters, with 500 ATK and DEF.
Doesn't seem like much, but her effect is not too
bad. Once per turn, detach one Xyz material to grant
your face up monsters protection from being
destroyed by battle and inflict piercing until your
opponent's end phase.While not being destroyed by
battle is good, added protection from at least
monster effects would have made this card a bit more
playable. Piercing is ok, if you have bigger
monsters on the field. Getting three LVL 1 monsters
can be a little bit of a chore, but with cards like
Treeborn Frog, TCG-exclusive D-Boyz, One-for-One,
Battle Fader and Mischief of the Yokai, makes
meeting the requirements easier. What makes Galaxy
Queen fall short is her effects. Not many duelists
use piercing effects these days and her ability to
protect destruction from battle is ok, but you still
take damage if your monsters are in ATK position.
This card falls just short of being really good, but
just by a bit. Try it out, I don't think it'll hurt
Tomorrow: Is that Thunder I hear?
Today's review is on the Xyz Monster, Number 83:
Galaxy Queen is a Rank 1 Xyz Monster that like all
Rank 1 Xyz' (currently) needs three Level 1 monsters
to summon. With 500 ATK and DEF it won't be winning
you any battles on its won, but what it is good at
is protecting your monster from being destroyed by
battle and allowing those monster to do piercing.
Pretty decent effect, however, being weak to monster
removal kills this card's playability. Why would you
get rid of three of your own monsters to summon this
weak monster that won't contribute to the win in a
big way, or last that long.
Shame, good card, just not worth it, not until we
get a Tour Guide for Rank 1 monsters that isn't
rubbish like D-Boyz...
Traditional 1/5 - Arg. Monster removal is plentiful
Advanced: 2/5 - Not easy to summon, and until then,
not worth using.
Art: 3/5 - Very rarely do we get cool female cards.
This is one of them IMO.
next card fits the theme of space, Number 83: Galaxy
This is our first Rank 1 Xyz monster that we’ve seen
so far, so let’s take a look. She’s got very low
attack and defense and requires 3, count ‘em, 3 Xyz
materials. Not looking so good; maybe the effect
will make this more appealing. When you detach a Xyz
material, all of your monsters become indestructible
by battle and will deal piercing battle damage until
the opponent’s next turn. This is promising, but
getting 3 Level 1 monsters on the field and then to
willingly overlaying them is usually difficult work.
There are some ways of getting around this though.
is a new flip effect monster in Photon Shockwave
that can special summon more D-Boyz when flipped
face-up. The advantage here is that you only need a
D-Boyz and a card such as Waboku or A/D Changer to
pull it off. The drawback is that you’ll take 2000
points of damage for it.
Another good card to use is Machine Duplication. A
lot of machine decks have a low-level basic form to
them. Cyber Larva from last week could be used for
Galaxy Queen when Machine Duplication is in your
hand and for walling when Dup. isn’t in the hand.
Genex Decks can use Genex Recycled, Genex Power
Planner, and R-Genex Oracle while Morphtronics have
several Level 1 targets (and some non-level 1
targets) for Machine Duplication.
Galaxy Queen herself has staying power, being
capable of making herself indestructible by battle.
She’s a little much of an investment for most decks,
but you could probably put her in a Morphtronic deck
since you’ll need some room and protection after
your Celfons use their effects for the turn.
Traditional: 1/5 (far more effective styles than
Advanced: 2.5/5 (the extra deck is very cramped
right now, but it could still be fun)
Art: 4/5 (more numbers!)
No. 38 Galaxy Queen
Hey pojo, today we have another xyz monster, galaxy
queen. She takes 3 level 1 monsters to be
summoned, and has 500/500 stats. Once per
turn, you an detach one xyz material from this card,
so that until your opponents end phase face up
monsters you control cannot be destroyed by battle.
And if your opponent(I think that’s what its
reffering to?) attacks a defense position monster,
you inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent.
That’s a pretty cool effect, however there are a few
problems. First is that it takes three level
one monsters, so short of veilers and faders nothing
immediately comes to mind, aside from glow-up bulb.
getting this out isn’t going to be easy (barring
some broken combo I don’t know about). The
second is that, if you do detach a material, your
opponent isn’t required to attack you, meaning they
can just sit and build their field. Now, this
could have been made better without being overly
broken by forcing your opponents monster to attack
All in all, I can’t see this card being main decked
outside of a stall/burn. And even then theres
