Galaxy Knight is our card today, one that works rather well with yesterdays card, especially if you're looking to XYZ Summon a Rank 8 XYZ Monster, and in a Galaxy Deck you might be trying to accomplish such a task. We have a Level 8, Light attributed, Warrior, with 2800 attack and 2600 defense, both of which I consider great for a Level 8 Monster. Now, Level 8 is two tributes, however, Galaxy Knight can be Normal Summoned from your Hand without Tribute, if you control a Galaxy or Photon Monster. When you do, you target a Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon from your Graveyard, and Special Summon it, if possible. If not, then oh well, but regardless (as stated on the card) this card loses 1000 attack, down to 1600. That's awful, BUT I'm thinking you'd only use this in a situation where you could at least get the Galaxy Eyes, and then the attack drop might not be so much. Plus, he's still Level 8, so you can XYZ or whatever else you see necessary. But, remember too, the 1000 attack decrease only lasts until the End Phase, so he returns to his 2800. He's a very solid card for a Galaxy/Photon Deck.

Ratings:

Traditional: 3.25/5 Light, Warrior, and a Normal Summon 2800 attacker? Even if its Deck specific, that's still good.

Advanced: 4.25/5

Art: 5/5

Galaxy Knight is the perfect fit in a Galaxy/Photon deck. All you need is a Photon or Galaxy monster on the field to normal summon it. With all of the special summoning abilities that this deck type possesses, getting a Galaxy or Photon monster on the field is not too difficult. Photon Thrasher and Slasher can both be special summoned. We also have a ton of reborn cards like Call of the Haunted, Monster Reborn. Limit Reverse, and Galaxy Zero.
 
Once you normal summon Galaxy Knight with it’s effect, you have a mandatory effect that special summons a Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon from your graveyard and low and behold, we have a rank 8 monster. Even if you do not have Galaxy-Eyes in your graveyard, you still have other monsters that can make level 8 and you still have a 2800 attack monster on the field after your turn ends. If you have our card from yesterday on the field, Galaxy Wizard, you can make it a level 8 and Xyz for a rank 8.
 
Once you get Galaxy Knight in the graveyard, you have 7 cards listed above that can special summon it back to the field. Once on the field, you can use Galaxy Expedition to summon Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon from the deck and Xyz for a rank 8. If you have not figured it out by now, the Galaxy/Photon theme can summon level 8 monsters like crazy, so making rank 8 monsters out of 2 or 3 monsters is a piece of cake and Galaxy Knight is a key piece to the puzzle.

Welcome to Zexal Tin week part 2! This week we are covering Kaito cards (as I am sure many of you already know from yesturday). Today we are looking at a card that really brings the theme together and allows for some amazing rank 8 plays. Let's take a look at Galaxy Knight!

Galaxy Knight
Level 8/ Light/ Warrior

If you control a "Photon" or "Galaxy" monster, you can Normal Summon this card without Tributing. When you do: Target 1 "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" in your Graveyard (if possible); regardless, this card loses 1000 ATK, and if it does, Special Summon that target (if any) in face-up Defense Position. This ATK decrease lasts until the End Phase.

2800/2600

Normally main deck tribute monsters are not that great, however Galaxy Knight changes that for sure! Being level 8 allows you to utilize Trade-In in the Galaxy deck now, as you have 6 potential discards (3 Galaxy Eyes and 3 Knight), thus giving some great draw power. You can also easily summon it off of Photon Sanctuary (another easy throw-in into the deck). Plus, thanks to the easily summonable Thrasher, you can special Thasher and then normal summon this for no tribute! That's 4900 points of damage off of 2 summons, though Thasher can't attack.

So we can see it is easy to summon, but it only gets better. So, when it's summon by not being tribute summoned you can special summon a galaxy-eyes photon dragon instant from your graveyard. This helps to set-up some fast rank 8 plays to summon the deck's ace monster: Neo-Galaxy Eyes. Even if you don't have another level 8, it is an instant 2 material rank 8; which is really good.

Advanced: 3.5

Amazing support for the Galaxy deck! It allows for some easy rank 8's and provides amazing synergy with the deck! However, it can be a dead draw without the proper field set-up, which is why the rating is a bit lower than normal

Traditional: 2.0

It could work? Being a light isn't too bad.

Art Work: 3.0

Not too bad. Though the giant warrior look is very common now.

Welcome to next card from the Zexal Tin. This card is an interesting card that might see some play in Photon/Galaxy decks.

Galaxy Knight
Attribute-Light
Types-Warrior/Effect
Level 8
If you control a "Photon" or "Galaxy" monster, you can Normal Summon this card without Tributing. When you do: Target 1 "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" in your Graveyard (if possible); regardless, this card loses 1000 ATK, and if it does, Special Summon that target (if any) in face-up Defense Position. This ATK decrease lasts until the End Phase.
ATK/2800 DEF/2600

This monster is pretty decent in a Galaxy/Photon deck. It has 2800 Attack points even though it would lose 1000 points for the turn it’s summoned. It is nice that it can get you a plus if you have Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon in the grave. This monster is nice because it can be used effectively in a Photon Skill Beat deck or a Galaxy Deck. The only issue with this monster is that a Photon or Galaxy monster has to be on the field to summon this with no tributes. That isn’t a big problem but can cause this monster to be a dead draw at times.

Advanced:3/5
-In a Photon/Galaxy deck, this card can be useful. It isn’t amazing but it’s pretty decent.

Traditional: 1/5
-This monster is just too slow for this format.

Art: 4/5
-It looks cool. It isn’t the best card art I’ve seen, but it’s still decent.

Galaxy Knight
Light/Warrior/Effect/Level8/2800/2600
If you control a "Photon" or "Galaxy" monster, you can Normal Summon this card without Tributing. When you do: Target 1 "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" in your Graveyard (if possible); regardless, this card loses 1000 ATK, and if it does, Special Summon that target (if any) in face-up Defense Position. This ATK decrease lasts until the End Phase.

The Next card from Kaito’s cards from the 2013 ZeXal Collection Tin is Galaxy Knight. Konami clearly designed this guy so you would get out Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon, but this guy screams I can summon any generic Rank 8 Xyz monster that requires 2 materials. This main effect is that of you have another Photon or Galaxy monster you can normal summon him with tribute, then you can special summon 1 Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon from your graveyard but Galaxy Knight loses 1000 ATK.

On the plus side he only loses his ATK until the End Phase so you will have a monster with 2800 ATK which didn’t need any tributes, and he does allow you to special summon a Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon without any condition to it barring it’s in DEF mode. However the main problem with Galaxy Knight is that both effects require you to have other monsters available which can be a problem.

Overall, if you play Galaxy/Photon decks, then this card is a must, other than that, if you want a level 8 that you can summon with a tribute use Beast King Barbaros instead.

Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced: 3.5/5
