It began with Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon, it evolved into Neo Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon, and now, here we are again, Number 107: Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon. This card continues to steroid up the level and abilities you've seen in different variations before. This is a Rank 8 XYZ Dragon, XYZ Summoned with two Level 8 Monsters. A Light attributed Dragon with 3000 attack and 2500 defense.

Once per Battle Phase, at the start of your Battle Phase, you can detach an XYZ Material from this card to negate the effects of all other face-up Monsters on the Field. Furthermore, their attack and defense become their original attack and defense, respectively. If you do any of these, during the Battle Phase of this turn, each time an opponent's card effect resolves, this card gains 1000 attack until the end of this Battle Phase.

Also, as if all this weren't enough, it can make a second attack during the Battle Phase this turn. Cliche as this may sound, if you invest in this card, he can likely win you a game in one turn. Perhaps longer, but like anything involving high resources, you gotta protect it. Duel intelligently

Ratings:

Traditional: 3/5 A Rank 8, even with only two XYZ Material may not be easy in Traditional but a a Dark Magician of Chaos and a Monster Reborn in the Grave can make that easy enough.

Advanced: 4/5
Art: 5/5

The cover card of Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy pulls into the Number 7 spot. Number 107: Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon is a Rank 8 Xyz LIGHT/Dragon monster, needing any 2 level 8 monsters to summon. Its ATK/DEF are the same as its regular Photon Dragon counterpart with 3000/2500. But we're all familiar with those stats, aren't we? Tachyon Dragon can shut down a lot of things when he attacks, as once you start your battle phase, you can detach 1 Xyz material from this card to negate the effects of all other face up monsters, also their ATK/DEF stats revert back to their original state. Whenever you do any of these, Tachyon Dragon gains 1000 ATK for each card opponent's card that resolves, until the end phase. Also this card can make a second attack as well. Right off the bat, Fire Fists are a huge target for Tachyon Dragon, as they rely on a few cards that can alter their ATK, and negate their effects as well, so they can take a pounding from this guy. It can also negate monsters like Marshmellon, Spirit Reaper, and others that are hard to get rid of by battle. He's easy to summon, great stats, hard to overcome. Downsides? He can fall prey to Dimensional Prison, Mirror Force and all other defensive trap cards. But no risk = no reward.

Traditional: 3 (He's LIGHT, that means Chaos)
Advanced: 4

Welcome to number 7 of our list of the best cards from Lord of Tachyon Galaxy! Today we pay homage to the name of this set by covering the cover card. So, lets take a look at Number 107: Galaxy Eyes Tachyon Dragon!

Number 107: Galaxy Eyes Tachyon Dragon
Rank 8/ LIGHT/ Dragon

2 Level 8 monsters
Once per Battle Phase, at the start of your Battle Phase: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the effects of all other face-up monsters currently on the field, also their ATK and DEF become their original ATK and DEF, and if you do any of these, during the Battle Phase this turn, each time an opponent's card effect resolves, this card gains 1000 ATK until the end of the Battle Phase, also, it can make a second attack during each Battle Phase this turn.

3000/2500

Yet another remake of the classic Blue-Eyes White Dragon! Tachyon is quite the xyz monster and is my favorite rank 8 that we currently have, due to how powerful its effect can be. Its not too hard to summon as well, Photons can easily summon this; so can Hieratics and the new Blue-Eyes cards.

So what makes Tachyon Dragon stick out from the other rank 8's that we currently have? Well, it first can spread a field wide skill drain onto the field and return all attack and defense back to their original. Even without the second effect, this is quite potent. It can make your opponent's Zenmaines or Spirit reaper an easy target to kill or make all the new Brotherhood cards easy to kill. But the fun doesn't end there.

If your opponent activates an effect during the battle phase, such as Giant Rat, Sangan, a Madolche return effect, Ryko, etc etc; Tachyon gains another 1000 attack and gets to attack again! That can create some huge damage against the correct monster or deck.

In terms of disadvantages, Tachyon doesn't have any fancy protection effects that make certain xyz monsters strong. In addition, many of the effects that are commonly used during the battle phase are ones that can destroy Tachyon, such as Ryko. As such, this effect isn't too useful at times.

Advanced: 3.25

In the right deck, this card can be deadly. Make no mistake, be careful when facing down this monster without the proper backrow.

Traditional: 1.25

Not really suited for here....

Today we are looking at number seven on our top ten countdown: Number 107: Galaxy Eyes Tachyon Dragon
“2 Level 8 monsters
Once per Battle Phase, at the start of your Battle Phase: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the effects of all other face-up monsters currently on the field, also their ATK and DEF become their original ATK and DEF, and if you do any of these, during the Battle Phase this turn, each time an opponent's card effect resolves, this card gains 1000 ATK until the end of the Battle Phase, also, it can make a second attack during each Battle Phase this turn.”

So right off the bat this card looks really good in Heretic decks. With him on the field any dragon brought out at 0 attack has its attack restored. He is also good in Darkworld, Blue Eyes, and anything else that spams level 8 monsters. His effect to negate effects also appears to be permanent, unless I missed something in the wording, which is a HUGE boon to his playability. His attack reset for monsters on the field, and getting an extra 1000 attack whenever an opponent’s effect resolves also makes for nice damage potential. If you can play him I don’t really see a reason not to.

Advanced: 4/5
Traditional: 2/5

Today we have another great card from Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy. It’s a really good card that is #7 on the Top Ten List for LTGY. This card shows a lot of potential and will probably just become even better as time goes on. Let’s see what this card can do!!

Number 107: Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon
Attribute: Light
Types: Dragon/Xyz/Effect
Rank 8
2 Level 8 monsters
Once per Battle Phase, at the start of your Battle Phase: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the effects of all other face-up monsters currently on the field, also their ATK and DEF become their original ATK and DEF, and if you do any of these, during the Battle Phase this turn, each time an opponent's card effect resolves, this card gains 1000 ATK until the end of the Battle Phase, also, it can make a second attack during each Battle Phase this turn.
ATK/3000 DEF/2500

So this monster has great stats for a rank 8 monster. Tachyon Dragon’s effect may seem a bit confusing at first but it’s a good effect. Once per battle phase you can activate its effect and negate all the effects of all other face-up monsters on the field. That can make a lot of cards like Spirit Reaper, Zenmaines or even Dracossack useless but this effect is also nice because the monsters’ effects will stay negated as long as they remain on the field. This monster can also increase its Attack points by 1000 and attack twice during the turn you use this effect. Tachyon Dragon’s effect is pretty great no matter how you look at it. It’s also a generic Xyz monster because it can be made with any level 8 monsters. That makes it a great choice in decks like Malefics, Dark Worlds, and eventually in Gimmick Puppets.

Advanced: 4/5
-Overall this card is pretty good. It can be used in a multitude of decks but probably won’t make too much of an impact this format.

Traditional: 2/5
Art: 5/5
-This dragon looks really amazing. It’s easily one of the best looking dragons in the game.

Today's Card of the Day review, and #7 of Pojo's Top 10 cards from the newly-released Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy cards is the cover card itself, Number 107: Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon!

This Rank 8 Dragon has 3000 ATK and 2500 DEF, which has the same stats as the iconic Blue-Eyes White Dragon, which is funny because this can be Xyz Summoning using 2 Blue-Eyes White Dragons.

Anyway, it is the effect that mechanical dragon has that makes it so worthy of the being a booster pack cover:

Once per Battle Phase, at the start of your Battle Phase: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the effects of all other face-up monsters currently on the field, also their ATK and DEF become their original ATK and DEF, and if you do any of these, during the Battle Phase this turn, each time an opponent's card effect resolves, this card gains 1000 ATK until the end of the Battle Phase, also, it can make a second attack during each Battle Phase this turn.

Needless to say, that is quite a complex effect it has.

First of all, the TCG badly needed this card. Our Rank 8 options before we got Number 107 was Number 40: Gimmick Puppet of Strings, Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo, Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon, and Hieratic Sun Dragon Overlord of Heliopolis. The first 2 is 2-material Rank 8 but Number 40 is not that good at all for competitive play (OKish for casual play though) and Hieratic Sun Dragon is our best Rank 8 but it normally costs resources to get full value out of it. The latter 2 (Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon and Number 88) needs 3 Level 8 monsters to summon making them big gimmick at best.

Therefore we needed a good but low-resource Rank 8 Xyz Monster. We finally got it in Number 107 and it certainly delivers.

First of all, by entering your Battle Phase, you can detach an Xyz Material to send out permanent Effect Veilers to every other monster on the field. That's sick right there. Spirit Reaper, Wind-Up Zenmaines, Tragoedia, Mecha Phantom Beast Dracossack, Metaion the Timelord......none of them can avoid that wrath. Even better, it is a permanent negation so they are basically just Vanilla monsters while on the field. Secondly their ATK/DEF goes back to what it was originally was. Now, I'm not sure if this will work so check up on it beforehand but this can render Equip Spells like Axe of Despair to be useless since the monster it is equipped to loses the benefit from Axe of Despair. If so, that is pretty darn sweet.

Now, keep in mind: Number 107 does this to ALL monsters on the field except itself, including your monsters. However, you can use that to your advantage. For example, if you have Number 107 and Photon Thrasher on the field, by using Number 107's effect, Photon Thrasher can actually attack while another monster is on the field now since its attack-restriction effect is permanently negated. This is just one of the neat benefits you can use Number 107 for.

Fortunately for you, there's more to it if you use this effect. Once you do so and start attacking, if your opponent activates and resolves any card effect (it doesn't matter if it is a monster effect, Spell, or Trap card effect), your Number 107 becomes even more fearsome by gaining an 2nd attack along with a 1000 ATK boost. If your opponent keeps resolves card effects, it will keep gaining ATK however you can only get one extra attack a Battle Phase. So if you were to see a Tragoedia being activated and resolves, Number 107 will have 4000 ATK and can blast Tragoedia in the face. Gorz isn't so lucky either since either Gorz or the Token will die as well esp. since Number 107 will have a grand total of 5000 ATK.

This is why it is a good idea that if you were to attack with Number 107 and there is backrow that you keep some Forbidden Lances and Forbidden Dresses on hand. If they were to activate a Dimensional Prison or Mirror Force, you can protect Number 107 with a Forbidden Lance and still gain the extra attack and an ATK boost, which will override your Forbidden Spell card ATK reduction to begin with.

This is merely the tip of the iceberg here as, if you were to watch the Japanese version of Zexal, we have already seen the Chaos Number of this monster, Chaos Number 107: Neo Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon. Unfortunately, its effects is not known just yet. In the meantime, definitely keep your eye out on this and if you do play Rank 8 Xyz monsters, I would say that Number 107 is definitely a staple and a MASSIVE boost for Galaxy/Photons since this card does count as a Galaxy monster so you can use that to drop Galaxy Knight with no tributes or bring it back to the field with Galaxy Zero just so you can use Rank-Up-Magic Barian's Force (also in this cool set) to bring out Chaos Number 107.

But I'm getting ahead of myself.

Case-in-point: I love this card name, I love its effect, and frankly, the artwork on this card does make for a pretty sick mat.

Watch yourself. Number 107 is here. Ignore it if you dare.

Traditional Format: 1/5 (Unfortunately, it won't make the cut here. I would play it there just for the coolness factor though.)
Advanced Format: 4/5 (It's one of the best, if not the best, Rank 8 Xyz monster we have and will most likely be the best one for quite some time. It takes something truly broken to beat out Number 107 from being a Rank 8 staple at this point of the game.)

Number 107: Galaxy Eyes Tachyon Dragon
LIGHT/Dragon/Xyz/Effect/Rank8/3000/2500
2 Level 8 monsters

Once per Battle Phase, at the start of your Battle Phase: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the effects of all other face-up monsters currently on the field, also their ATK and DEF become their original ATK and DEF, and if you do any of these, during the Battle Phase this turn, each time an opponent's card effect resolves, this card gains 1000 ATK until the end of the Battle Phase, also, it can make a second attack during each Battle Phase this turn.

At number 7 of our top 10 cards from Lord of the Tachyon Dragon is Number 107: Galaxy Eyes Tachyon Dragon, the cover card of this set. Number 107: Galaxy Eyes Tachyon Dragon wants to be the next Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon, but is it? To be honest… no. GEPD’s effect ruined your opponent’s Xyz monster by removing their material and it could protect itself from cards like Mirror Force and the like. GETD doesn’t have that, GETD is designed for one thing, attack, attack and attack. Granted it can negate all other face-up monster’s effects and reset their stats, and it can gain loads of extra ATK and have the chance of a second attack, but it has no protection and its effect only works on face-up monsters at the time the effect resolves. So attack a face-down Ryko and it still will get destroyed. Mirror Force will still destroy it, etc.

Overall, GEPD is better, same stats and it has at least a bit of protection.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2.5/5
