LTGY Preview: Mecha Phantom Beast Mayhem!

May 9th, 2013

With their favourable Type and Attribute along with the ability to modify their Levels almost at will, Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy’s Mecha Phantom Beasts have access to an incredible range of Xyz Monsters. For a refresher on how Mecha Phantom Beast monsters work, click here. Once you’re ready, read on to learn about the wealth of Extra Deck options that await you if you choose to deploy with the Mecha Phantom Beasts!

The non-Xyz Mecha Phantom Beasts all share 2 effects: they can’t be destroyed while you control a Token, and they gain the combined Levels of all Mecha Phantom Beast Tokens you control. The first ability is great, because it helps you keep a monster on the field in order to Xyz Summon with it next turn, and the second ability dictates what Ranks of monsters you’ll be able to Xyz Summon. Remember that most Mecha Phantom Beasts can Tribute Tokens to use their effects, allowing you to easily control how many Tokens are in play and altering the Levels of your monsters in your favour. With the Level 3 and 4 Mecha Phantom Beast monsters, you can make Xyz Summons for Rank 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, and 10 Xyz Monsters!

With 2 Level 3 Mecha Phantom Beasts, you have access to Rank 3, 6, and 9 monsters. Mecha Phantom Beast Hamstrat is king when it comes to setting up these plays. When it’s flipped face-up, you can Summon 2 Mecha Phantom Beast Tokens. You can also Tribute a Token you control to Special Summon 1 Mecha Phantom Beast monster from your Graveyard, manipulating your Tokens (and your monsters’ Levels!) so you can make the right Xyz Summon while also providing the second Xyz Material. After it’s been flipped, you have 2 options:

· Normal Summon a Level 3 Mecha Phantom Beast during your turn, and Xyz Summon a Rank 9 Xyz Monster since you control 2 Tokens. OR

· Tribute a Token during your turn to Special Summon 1 Mecha Phantom Beast monster from your Graveyard – in this case, a Level 3 Mecha Phantom Beast – and Xyz Summon a Rank 6 Xyz Monster, since you control 1 Token.

Two of the Level 3 Mecha Phantom Beasts, Mecha Phantom Beast Stealthray and Mecha Phantom Beast Turtletracer are also eligible targets for Machine Duplication, allowing for quick Rank 3 Xyz Summons, including Xyz Summons that require 3 Materials! And since they’re WIND, you can even play the all-new Totem Bird and give yourself some extra Spell/Trap negation power. Here’s a visual guide to monsters you might want to Xyz Summon with your Level 3, 6, or 9 Mecha Phantom Beasts.

The Level 4 Mecha Phantom Beasts can set up Rank 4, 7, and 9 Xyz Summons. Mecha Phantom Beast Megaraptor Summons an additional Mecha Phantom Beast Token whenever you Summon one, which combos really well with Aerial Recharge. With these 2 cards, you can Summon 2 Tokens every turn, including your opponent’s turn! It’s easy to start your turn controlling Megaraptor and Aerial Recharge. There are lots of different Xyz Summons you can do from here: you could Normal Summon another Level 4 Mecha Phantom Beast, and simply Xyz Summon a Rank 4 Xyz Monster, but here’s a combo you can use to Xyz Summon a Rank 7 or 10 Xyz Monster!

· Activate the effect of Aerial Recharge, and Summon 1 Mecha Phantom Beast Token. Mecha Phantom Beast Megaraptor will also Summon 1 Token.

· Use Megaraptor’s effect to Tribute a Token and add 1 Mecha Phantom Beast from your Deck to your hand – select Mecha Phantom Beast Tetherwolf.

· Normal Summon Tetherwolf, Summoning a Mecha Phantom Beast Token.

You now control Mecha Phantom Beast Megaraptor, Mecha Phantom Beast Tetherwolf, and 2 Mecha Phantom Beast Tokens. From here, you have 2 options:

· Tribute a Token for Tetherwolf’s ATK-increasing effect, and Xyz Summon a Rank 7 Xyz Monster, OR

· Don’t Tribute any, and Xyz Summon a Rank 10 Xyz Monster!

Aerial Recharge and Mecha Phantom Beast Megaraptor creates heaps of Xyz Summoning combos, so it’s important to learn how to use them both together. Additionally, the more Tokens you have, the better Scramble!! Scramble!! becomes. With the above combo, or with the Tokens from a destroyed Hamstrat, you can activate Scramble!! Scramble!! to get multiple Level 4 Mecha Phantom Beasts for an all-out assault or a Rank 4 Xyz Summon. Here’s a visual guide to monsters you might want to Summon with your Level 4, 7, and 10 Mecha Phantom Beasts!

The Mecha Phantom Beast monsters can easily Xyz Summon all kinds of Xyz Monsters that are often out of reach for most other Decks. You can even take advantage of hard to Summon Xyz Monsters like Number 9: Dyson Sphere, Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon, and Superdimensional Robot Galaxy Destroyer! If you’re interested in Summoning huge Xyz Monsters while still having lots of other powerful options, then pick up some Mecha Phantom Beasts at a Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy Sneak Peek event this weekend!
