Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Neo Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon isn't the easiest monster to summon. The best way to do so is using Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon and Rank-Up-Magic Cipher Ascension. You'll still have up to two materials attached, and the added boost of 500ATK for each Level 4 or higher monster you control.
 
Neo Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon needs a Cipher card as a material for its effect to kick. If you have one, you can steal up to 3 monsters your opponent has until the End Phase. While they won't have their effects, and can't attack, you can still do a host of things with them. They gain NGECD's name and gain its attack, making it a great target for LP damage through card effects. You can Xyz, Tribute, Synchro and Fusion with them as well. Don't forget, if you steal monsters that are Level 4 or higher, and used Cipher Ascension to bring out NGECD, it will gain 500ATK for each.
 
Its a card meant for its own archetype.

I want to give this card a 5 but I know it doesn't deserve the score. I just always thought the Galaxy monsters were so cool. Neo Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon is a Rank 9 Light Dragon-type XYZ Monster with 4500 Atk and 3000 Def. If it has a Cipher card as material it's very good at stealing face-up monsters. This counts as non-targeting removal until the End Phase which would be enough to win the game, but the stolen monsters can't attack directly. Balance is good, but without a Cipher material, you have a generic strong dragon which are a dime a dozen. Great for its theme, but Neo Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon is just too late to be relevant. 
 
Score: 4/5
Art: 4/5

Neo Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon:
 
You know a set isn't that good when they take a card that was recently printed as a Super in a recent set and put it in there where it is harder to get. Neo Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon was a Super in Raging Tempest, and you get a Super Rare per pack. So why did it need to be an Ultra Rare in Dimensional Guardians? This is likely the Ultra you don't want from Dimensional Guardians, assuming you actually want one, but we are reviewing it today because it honestly isn't horrible, despite it being a Rank-Up monster.
 
Neo Cipher Dragon requires 3 Level 9s to summon him, or you will summon him like a normal person would and use a Rank-Up Magic. This guy only gets his effect if you have a Cipher as an XYZ Material, which you are likely summoning this by Ranking-Up Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon. Once per turn, you can detach up to 3 XYZ Materials from this guy, only this guy will be able to attack directly this turn, but you can take one monster your opponent controls for each material detached, their effects are negated, their ATK becomes 4500, and their names are Neo Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon. You will have to give them back during the End Phase and they will get their effects and normal ATK back, but a wise person will use them for Synchro/XYZ/Tribute/Link material if they are able to.
 
This isn't bad, but the problem lies in the fact that this is a Rank-Up monster, and those are usually pretty slow and you have to run bricky cards like the Rank-Up Magics.
 
Advanced Rating: 2.75/5
