I am Spellcaster to and through, but the nerd and science side of me picked the card we close the week with.  Number 9:  Dyson Sphere, is a very interesting XYZ Monster.  A Dyson Sphere, for those who are unaware (or may be familiar with via science, or Star Trek (ala the Next Generation episode Relics) is an idea coined by the scientist Freeman Dyson.  Theoretically, it's a giant metallic sphere that could house countless people, harnessing the energy of a star or sun, for a livable community until the star or sun went dead.  You would have unlimited energy, at least for the life of the star.  It''s an incredibly ingenius and remarkable idea that's always fascinated me!
 
As for the card itself, Number 9:  Dyson Sphere, is a Rank 9 XYZ Monster, and a Light attributed Machine, with 2800 attack and 3000 defense, who is XYZ Summoned with two Level 9 Monsters.  That alone is probably about enough of a detriment to anyone who might even want to play this card.  This card has a Quick Effect, being if its attacked, during the Battle Step, so long as it has XYZ Material, that attack is negated.  That's worthwhile, (ignoring actual cards to destroy this card) if your opponent only has one Monster stronger than Dyson Sphere, it won't be destroyed.  The effect can be used more than once a turn, so long as the XYZ Material can be discarded.  Now, you're probably thinking that's not all too special as you're only going to get that twice.  Wrong--the next effect is very fitting of the name and use of a Dyson Sphere.  If Dyson Sphere is targeted for an attack while holding no XYZ Material, you can add two Monsters from your Graveyard as new XYZ Material to this card.  Furthermore, if your opponent controls a Monster (or Monsters) with attack higher than this card, during your Main Phase 1, by discarding an XYZ Material, Dyson Sphere can attack your opponent directly.  Getting Dyson Sphere to the Field may be tricky, but if you can, he's going to be a lot of fun.  Enjoy!

Today we are going to look at a Xyz monster that takes 2 level 9 monsters to summon. Number 9: Dyson Sphere is well named. It is pretty beastly at 2800 attack and 3000 defense. And then there are the three effects that it has. The first is to protect itself from attacked as long as it has material attached to it. The second effect is to attach two monsters from your grave to it if is attached and has no material. As it has already been attacked, it can not then negate that attack. However, you could then play cards like Book of Moon and Forbidden Lance to save it from being destroyed. You could also grab cards that get their effect when sent to the graveyard from anywhere like Eclipse Wyvern and Dandylion. The last effect is to attack directly if your opponent controls a monster with a higher attack by removing a material.
 
Now comes the tough part; getting those two level 9 monsters on the field. There are not too many level 9 monsters in the game and most of them have to be synchro or fusion summoned. You could play Winged Kuriboh LV9 against spell heavy decks like Spellbooks and E-Heros. Then use the effect of Tragoedia to make it a level 9 while LV9 is in the graveyard. Then special summon Winged Kuriboh with Call or Monster Reborn. Likewise, you can do the same thing with a synchro or fusion deck that plays level 9 synchro or fusion monsters.
 
The second way to get level 9 monsters on the field is to make them. The fastest way to do this is with a new card from Abyss Rising called Tannhauser Gate. All you need is two monsters on the field with their levels adding up to 9 to make them both level 9 monsters. If you have a level 9 monster on the field and one other monster, you can play Galaxy Queen’s Light to make them both level 9 monsters. You can also play spellbook of Life on High Priestess of Prophecy using a level 4 Spellcaster to make her a level 9 monster.
 
As you can see, it is not easy getting two level 9 monsters on the field and in order to do it, you have to expend a lot of resources. Once you get Number 9 out, I am not sure all the hard work and dedication is worth it. There are much better Xyz monsters to choose from that are much easier to summon.
