Xyz Veil, reasonable Xyz support, or support in
general, although has the unfortunate category of
being a Continuous Trap, but I guess helps add some
balance to a decent enough card. Face up Xyz
Monsters with Xyz Material cannot be targeted by
card effects. Now, first let's clarify that this
card does not, repeat, does NOT, finally, DOES NOT
state anything like "your Xyz Monsters" it says
"face up Xyz Monsters" to include both players, and
that does hurt the playability of this card also.
Anyway, this essentially means that (so long as
there is/are Material(s)), your opponent must Battle
them, which will likely have their own Monsters
destroyed, via some sort of ability, or not being
strong enough. One might be worth trying out, if
only for Tech value.
3/5 all around, for reason listed above

We're starting this week with Xyz Veil, the Sneak
promo for Generation Force. There really isn't much
to say about this. It only saves your Xyz from
targeting effects like Mind Control or monsters like
Scrap Dragon. It can still be killed in battle or by
cards that don't target, like Bottomless Trap Hole,
Dimensional Prison and Dark Hole. Even worse, your
monster needs to have Xyz materials remaining in
order to get this protection.
It's almost like Konami said "Hold it, that might be
a good card," and decided to kill it.
Art: Have you seen it in real life? It's odd.
Fun Fact: This promo should've been an actual Xyz.
Tomorrow: A new set of Hero cards.
Xyz Veil is an interesting continuous trap card from
Generation Force. Our sneak preview card could have
been a lot better. I was hoping for another
exclusive Xyz monster, but no, they gave us this.
It’s effect is simple, face-up Xyz monsters cannot
be targeted by card effects as long as they have Xyz
materials. Unfortunately this effect isn’t very
good. This card may prevent a Dimensional Prison,
Book of Moon, Compulsory Evacuation Device, or even
an Effect Veiler from hitting your Xyz monster, but
is it really worth it to play a continuous trap
designed to protect Xyz? I can think of 1 deck that
consistently Xyz summons (Offering Gadgets). Maybe
you could combo it with Magic Planter because the
deck already runs continuous traps, but I really
don’t see the point. Xyz Veil could have been a lot
better, but unfortunately it’s what we got. I
definitely won’t be running this card any time soon.
A relatively unimpressive exclusive Trap Card, Xyz
Veil makes all Xyz Monsters with Xyz Materials
invulnerable to targeting effects. It's not that
bad, really, but the issue that you have to have a
face-up Xyz Monster that's relatively fresh makes
this card fairly situational. And it only takes a
Dark Hole to render it pointless. Konami probably
felt they had to give us this to buffer the
monstrosity that is Reborn Tengu.
