Psychics get their own Xyz monster in the form of Chronomaly Crystal Chrononaut.  A light monster with 2100 attack has some possibilities, but not much. Honest is as option unless you are playing a Psychic deck which does not have light Psychics. However, if you are running a Chaos deck, Chronomaly Crystal may be a good fit. By summoning Tour Guide and using its effect to summon this card, you have your light and dark monsters for Lightpulsar, Darkflare, Chaos Sorcerer, and BLS with just one card.
 
In a Psychic deck, Crystal Chrononaut can be used with cards like Psychic Lifetrancer, Psychic Overload, Psychic Sword, and Psychic Trigger. Once you use up your Xyz material, you can even use Psychic Jumper to switch control of it with a more powerful monster your opponent controls. The nice thing about Chronomaly Crystal Chrononaut is that it can protect itself from attacks for 2 turns. It can also protect itself from Catastor.
 
The bad thing about Chronomaly Crystal Chrononaut, besides its low attack, is that it only protects itself from destruction when it is attacked,. If you attack or your opponent activates a destruction card that is not in response to their attack, then it can not save itself from destruction.
 
The part where your opponent takes damage is just OK as they will usually find a way around it. All in all, this card is not bad, it is just not great as there are much better Rank 3 monsters. Still, Psychic and Chaos decks may find a use for Chronomaly Crystal Chrononaut.

Chronomaly Crystal Chrononaut is a interesting monster. A rank 3 LIGHT/Psychic Xyz, and needs any 2 level 3 monsters. This monster stands in with 2100 ATK and 1000 DEF, which aren't the best, but not the worst. 
 
Once per turn, when this card is targeted for an attack: You can detach one Xyz material from this card; this turn, this card cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects, also your opponent takes any battle damage you would take from battles involving this card. 
 
I would rank this card along side yesterday's card, as a card with decent stats and an ok effect. The high points of this card is how easy it is to Xyz summon, and it might make your opponent think twice about attacking especially if they are running low on LPs. Overall, not a bad card, but its uses are situational if you want to use Chrononaut to its fullest. On a side note, it is a LIGHT monster, so using Honest might surprise your opponent.

All righty, silly Dark Paladin did today's card yesterday, so you get yesterday's card tomorrow, ie today.  Sorry about that folks.  Chronomaly Crystal Chrononaut (again if that was too hard to follow, today's CotD is on yesterday, and this review is for yesterday, apologies again).
 
This is a Rank 3 XYZ Monster, XYZ Summoned with two Level 3 Monsters.  This is a Light attributed Monster, incredibly well supported, and Chaos food, and has 2100 attack.  Not overly impressive, but not bad for a Rank 3 XYZ, although the 1000 defense leaves something to be desired.  C3 as I've dubbed him for the review, is also a Psychic, a Decktype (in various forms) I feel to be underrated and under-appreciated.  So, as for effects, if you discard an XYZ Material Monster, C3 cannot be destroyed by Battle OR by Effects.  Superb, aside from the whole "must be targeted for an attack" disclaimer.  In addition to that, any Battle Damage you would take from a Battle involving C3 via the effect here, is dealt to your opponent.  The stipulation seems unnecessary, and the latter effect doesn't seem all that game breaking either.  Might be worth while in Psychics, maybe not.
