Photon Satellite is similar to, yet different than, Monday's card. Here we have a Level 1, Light attributed Machine, with 0 attack or defense. You use this effect, and use it in the turn you Summon this Monster, cause so long as you do, the 0 attack and defense are pretty much a moot point. You select and target another Photon Monster you control. The Level of both that card, and this card, become the total Level of the two Monsters combined Levels. Obviously here again we're going for XYZ Summon, just play it to whatever you need, of course. I think Monday did it better, and did it more, but here you're not forced into Level 8.

Satellite is a card that like to jumble around the levels of your Photon monster. Once per turn you can target one Photon monster you control, and then you add them up, and the targeted monster and Satellite's level become the combined number you get. So if you target Photon Thrasher with this card, both monsters become level 5. That sets up a for a lot of Xyz summoning. Satellite's stats are 0/0 for ATK and DEF, that speaks for itself. LIGHT and Machine are supported heavily so that works well. My favorite way to use this card is One For One, thus setting up for cards like Photon Pirate. Stats aside, this card is handy, but is to be used in tandem with other Photon monsters. Not to be left alone out there, cause it will get shot down real fast.
Traditional: 2

Today we are looking at: Photon Satellite

“You can target 1 face-up "Photon" monster you control; increase this card's Level by that target's Level. This card can be treated as 2 Xyz Materials for an Xyz Summon.”

So we have a 1 star 0/0 light machine that can make a Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon, maybe. Call me crazy, but I like it. As I mentioned yesterday Photons still need something broken to really let them break the top tier, but if and when they do this card is a nice way to make Galaxy Eyes Photon dragon.

Advanced: 3/5 (In Photons)
Traditional: 2/5

After yesterday’s all out attacker, we return to the other main focus of Photon monsters, allowing the easy summon of Xyz monsters. For the most part Photon Satellite isn’t much poor stats and an effect that requires another Photon monster on the field. But if you do that another Photon monster then you can summon any generic Xyz monster that requires two materials in the game (barring Rank 1). Chances are you will most likely be summoning Rank 4 or 5 but still there is a lot you can do with this card. Also its extremely low stats means there are plenty of ways to special summon him.

Overall a really useful card in Photon Decks but limited outside of that.

Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced: 3.5/5
