Number 93: Utopia Kaiser - #YCSW-EN009

2 or more "Number" Xyz Monsters, with the same Rank, that have Xyz Material Once per turn: You can Special Summon Rank 9 or lower "Number" monsters with 3000 or less ATK that have different Ranks from each other from your Extra Deck, up to the number of Xyz Materials with different names attached to this card, but their effects are negated, then detach 1 Xyz Material from this card. For the rest of this turn, unless this effect was negated, you cannot Special Summon, and any battle damage your opponent takes becomes halved. While you control another "Number" Xyz Monster, this card cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects.

At first, the summoning condition sounds daunting, but it’s not that hard. So once you overcome the initial scare, the question for Number 93 is: does the benefit outweigh the cost? Well, it depends on the deck, but it’s probably too high right now.
 
Two rank 4 Numbers monsters are easy in the proper deck. Usually revolving around Utopia builds, Kaiser can be brought out in one turn decently, depending on the hand. And its best friend is probably the Clownblade combo, which doesn’t make Kaiser’s cost efficient, but at least reduces the burden. So what can be done when it’s brought out? Well unfortunately, Kaiser doesn’t keep the materials of the monsters it used to XYZ summon it, and that may be its ultimate undoing. If you used only two monsters, then by the time you use his effect, you’re left with only one material on Kaiser, which could be good enough, but maybe not.
 
Most commonly, Kaiser would bring out two 3000 ATK beatsticks. You would only get to deal half damage that turn, but that’s normally not bad. It’s the second restriction that really binds up Kaiser. There are a slew of plays one could normally do with free Number XYZ monsters. For instance, Numbers 53 and Number 37 each have graveyard effects. And then there’s Utopia and Shark Drake which have C. chaos options. And then there’s Rank-Up options. But those all require you to be able to continue to special summon in a timely manner to be optimal, but you can’t. And let’s not forget that a true Kaiser build would want to have a toolbox to summon whatever you need given the situation, but there’s only 15 spaces in the extra deck. You’re limited there, too.
 
I feel like Kaiser could one day be abused, as almost any card that summons any option from the extra deck so freely ends up being, but it doesn’t have that ability today. And even building a deck around him isn’t effective, as being unable to special summon or launch massive attacks in one strike is a huge blow that can’t really be avoided.
 
Advanced: 1.5/5
Future Potential: 2/5

Welcome Back from the weekend, the vacation, or just waking up. Number 93: Utopia Kaiser is a very splashable monster in the Extra Deck. It's still difficult to summon requiring 2 Same Rank Number XYZ Monsters that both have to have XYZ Material. Rank 12 with 2500 Atk is low. The self protection from all forms of destruction is good. The power effect is the ability to Special Summon Rank 9 or lower different Ranks Number XYZ Monsters up to the number of Utopia Kaiser's material with different names. Those monsters are effect negated, but they can attack. You have to give up 1 XYZ material, future Special Summons that turn, and the ability to do full damage to the opponent. All battle damage is halved, unless the effect is negated, but if you get Striked, then this monster won't be on the field either, and you'll have given up a lot of field presence. This prize card will be difficult to get, but even when reprinted, running 1 might be very surprising. Then again, it could just be Kaijued away. We'll see.
 
Score: 4/5 A long and growing list of support for an indestructible monster. 
Art: 5/5 Regal and Awesome.
