Speaking of garbage Utopia support...I shouldn't have been so hard on Salamander yesterday, because Utopia Ray Victory is a far bigger waste of resources, and many times worse than yesterday.  This is a Rank 5 XYZ Monster, with 2800 attack (good, but you have easier to summon XYZ with better effects with better or more attack) and 2500 attack.  Light is good and obviously well supported, as is Warrior.  This card does prevent your opponent from activating Magic or Trap cards until the end of the Damage Step if it attacks.  If it has a Utopia Monster attached as an XYZ Material, if this card attacks an opponent's face-up Monster, said Monster has its effects negated, and this card gains attack equal to that Monsters attack, until the End Phase.  So many unnecessary hoops to go through, waste of too many resources, just junk.  See if you can trade any of these you come across for something good.

Traditional:  1/5 
Advanced:   2/5 
Art:  4.5/5

We are going to continue with yesterday’s Utopia theme and talk about Number C39: Utopia Ray Victory. If you missed yesterday’s review of V Salamander, you may want to review it before proceeding. Although there is a requirement of 3 level 5 monsters to summon it, Utopia Ray Victory is best summoned using a Utopia monster and any one of the Rank-Up Magic cards. Once out, it becomes a real force to be reckoned with on offense.
First we start with 2800 attack. Then we add in the fact that your opponent can not activate any spell or trap cards during this attack. If you have used a Rank-Up Magic card then you will also use the effect to negate the monster you are attacking and gain that monsters attack. So basically, you do not have to worry about almost anything once you declare an attack and you’re almost guaranteed to do 2800 damage. That is pretty good.
What Number C39: Utopia Ray Victor gives us another answer to a deferent situation that we may face. As we saw yesterday, Number C39: Utopia Ray V is good against an opponent who has a lot of monsters on the field. Utopia Ray Victor is useful against heavy back rows that play cards like Mirror Force and Dimensional Prism. While Utopia decks are not what we call top Meta right now, there could be OTK’s made with this type of deck. All you have to do is to give Victor the ability to attack twice.
Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2.5/5


Today's Card of the Day is an extension of yesterday's card selection and the cover card of the Judgment of the Light booster set, Number C39: Utopia Ray Victory.
This is the 3rd Chaos Number 39 released for the game and this one is actually pretty good. This card is made for the Rank-Up-Magic Spell Card archetype since it is a Rank 5 Xyz monster but it has 2 good effects that is worth using.
First of all, this is a Rank 5 Xyz monster, which I already have mentioned, with 2800 ATK, 2500 DEF (which is pretty good overall), and is also a LIGHT Warrior, which gives me a good amount of indirect support. The first effect allows it not to be concerned with Spells/Traps is not affect it when it attacks. No Dimensional Prison, no Mirror Force, no Forbidden Lance, etc etc. It is an overall good effect.
What makes that first effect so good is when you get to the 2nd effect, which only happens when you bring out Utopia Ray Victory via a Rank-Up-Magic Spell Card because you need an "Utopia" monster attached to it as an Xyz Material. That effect allows you to detach an Xyz Material when it attacks an opponent's monster to negate that monster's face-up effects and add that monster's ATK to Utopia Ray Victory's ATK until the End Phase. This card breaks down walls like Marshmallon and Spirit Reaper and basically beats any monster in combat since Utopia Ray Victory's ATK will always be 2800 higher than the opposing monster. Combining this with the fact that your opponent can't Dimensional Prison or Prideful Roar it during the attack phase is pretty darn brutal and can easily end a game.
One other thing that I need to cover about this card is the fact that you only need an "Utopia" monster as an Xyz Material to get Utopia Ray Victory's 2nd effect so you can bring this out using either Number 39: Utopia or Number C39: Utopia Ray since they both would count when you Rank-Up-Magic it to Utopia Ray Victory. This is a nice little added bonus for those who want to give this card a try and an excellent supplicant for the Super Starter Deck that was released a few months earlier.
This is a budget cover card that is pretty good for the price tag where the Ultimate copy is $5 or less currently right now and is worth looking into, along with the Rank-Up-Magic Spells, for any budget players out there.
Traditional Format: 1/5 (I doubt this will make the cut there unlike Utopia Ray V because it does need to attack making it a lot more vulnerable overall. That does hurt in that format.)
Advanced Format: 3/5 (If you are willing to use Utopia Ray V, I don't see why you wouldn't use at least 1 Utopia Ray Victory. It is definitely worth using at least 1 copy, if not 2.)


Number C39: Utopia Ray Victory
3 Level 5 monsters
If this card attacks, your opponent cannot activate any Spell/Trap Cards until the end of the Damage Step. If this card has a "Utopia" monster as an Xyz Material, it gains this effect.
● When this card declares an attack on a face-up monster your opponent controls: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate that opponent's face-up monster's effects, also this card gains ATK equal to that opponent's monster's ATK. These changes last until the end of this turn.

Today we have yet another Utopia Upgrade in this case, Number C39: Utopia Ray Victory. Statwise this is quite good, 2800 ATK and 2500 DEF is very good for a Rank 5, also it is a LIGHT/Warrior so plenty support already for it and that is excluding all the ZW cards.

Normally Number C39: Utopia Ray Victory has an effect similar to many of the old Ancient Gear Monsters which is always a great effect. However if you have an Utopia monster as material it gains another effect like all Chaos Xyz.

Simply when this card attacks a face up monster, you detach one material and that monster’s effects are negated and it gains attack equal to that monster’s ATK until the End Phase. So for one material you have an effect similar to Effect Veiler and an effect similar to Honest combined into one effect. That is very useful and combined with its normal effect and there is very little that can stop this from winning any time it attacks.

Of course it isn’t perfect, the second effect only works on face-up monsters and both effects are only useful and playable during your Battle Phase so it is still quite vulnerable despite having a lot of protection.

Overall if you are playing a lot of Utopias and Ranked Up cards this is almost essential, otherwise it is a good monster but not the perfect card the anime likes to portray it as.

Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

Hey guys today we are doing Utopia Ray Victory, yet another Utopia/version that has been reprinted. This card overall isn't much too talk about. When he's xyz summoned by using three materials your opponent cannot activate spells and traps when he attacks.... I'd rather have Armades.. When he's summoned through Utopia (keep in mind you have to xyz summon Utopia then use Rank Up Magic Barians Force) he can negate a face-up monster he declares an attack on and gain it's attack. Not bad I guess, just not worth the setup in my opinion.
Trad: 1/5
Adv: 2/5
