World Superstars – The Real Star Power Starts Here

April 7th, 2015

Great news for Galaxy geeks and Photon fans: the World Superstars booster delivers four new cards for Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon and its swarm of space-time supporters! The Galaxy-Eyes theme has no shortage of heavy-hitters, but it’s needed two key factors for ages; more ways to get those big attackers onto the field, and problem-solving cards to protect big monsters and make sure they connect when they attack.

World Superstars delivers both, starting with one of the most brutal removal cards ever printed. Check out Photon Stream of Destruction!

Photon Stream of Destruction
is a Quick-Play Spell that you can activate when you control a “Galaxy-Eyes” monster: that means Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon or any of the “Galaxy-Eyes” Xyz Monsters. You can only activate it on your opponent’s turn if you control Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon, which is coincidentally the easiest one to Summon.

What does Photon Stream do? Target a card and banish it. That’s it – one absolute answer to any threat. Need to push through your opponent’s backrow? Photon Stream is Mystical Space Typhoon and then some. Need to defend yourself from an attacker? Photon Stream takes down any threat. And if you want to swing in for damage, this high-impact Quick-Play nixes any monster card… without sending it to the Graveyard.


That’s awesome, because you can eliminate Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss or Virgil, Rock Star of the Burning Abyss without triggering their Graveyard abilities. You can banish Pendulum Monsters like Qliphorts instead of destroying them and sending them to the Extra Deck, and you can take a Nekroz out of the game to stop stuff like Nekroz of Unicore, Nekroz Mirror, or the search effects of your opponent’s Ritual Spells.

And if you think that’s crazy, you might want to fasten your seatbelt.

You can only activate Tachyon Transmigration if you control a “Galaxy-Eyes” monster. If you do, this ridiculous Counter Trap negates the activations of all of your opponent’s Spell Cards, Trap Cards, and monster effects in the current Chain. It then shuffles any of the cards that were activated on the field and negated back into their Deck – it doesn’t even leave the monsters. It won’t affect your cards in the Chain either: those resolve as normal.

Surely that can’t get any crazier, right? Wrong.

If you control a “Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon” monster you can play Tachyon Transmigration straight from your hand. Because why not. Xyz Summon Number 107: Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon off a simple two-Material overlay, or unleash the beast with Rank-Up-Magic – The Seventh One into Number C107: Neo Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon. Then watch as your opponent realizes they’re double-powerless to stop your rampage.

Photon Stream of Destruction and Tachyon Transmigration are the ultimate problem solvers. So, how do you get Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon into the battle to make them live?

There are lots of ways to Summon Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon: cards like Galaxy Knight, Galaxy Expedition, and Starliege Lord Galaxion all fit different situations. But World Superstars brings two new, easy ways to unleash Kite’s signature Dragon.

The first searches any “Galaxy” monster from your Deck: you can send one other LIGHT monster from your hand to the Graveyard to Special Summon Galaxy Soldier from your hand, and when it’s Special Summoned you can search your Deck for Galaxy-Eyes… or whatever else you need. If you already have Galaxy-Eyes, sending it to the graveyard can set up plays with cards that revive it, like Galaxy Knight.

…Or the new Galaxy-Eyes Cloudragon. You can Tribute Cloudragon to Special Summon a “Galaxy-Eyes” monster from your hand or Graveyard, so whether you search Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon with Galaxy Soldier, or pitch it for the Soldier’s search effect, Cloudragon combos to get Galaxy-Eyes to the field. It can revive fallen Xyz too, and once per Duel you can attach it as an Xyz Material from your Graveyard to buff any of your “Galaxy-Eyes” Xyz.


Attaching Cloudragon as an Xyz Material gets you more out of your best Xyz. Number 107: Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon can negate the effects of face-up monsters, and erases their ATK and DEF boosts. It even gains Attack Points and can battle extra times.

Number 62: Galaxy-Eyes Prime Photon Dragon can detach Xyz Materials to gain ATK once per attack. It also deals more damage and kicks in a killer revival effect if you keep Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon attached to it as an Xyz Material. Having Cloudragon as a spare Xyz Material helps you keep Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon attached longer, ensuring Prime Photon Dragon stays at peak performance.

Finally, the new Number 95: Galaxy-Eyes Dark Matter Dragon from Return of the Bling can attack two monsters per Battle Phase, if you have an Xyz Material to detach. Galaxy-Eyes Cloudragon helps keep the hits coming by giving Dark Matter Dragon an extra turn’s worth of double attacking. And if Dark Matter Dragon’s destroyed, another Cloudragon can bring it right back into the fight at 4000 ATK.

Photon Stream of Destruction, Tachyon Transmigration, Galaxy Soldier and Galaxy-Eyes Cloudragon zero in on key challenges for the Galaxy and Photon Deck, then obliterate them. They’re exactly what this strategy needed, and you can find yours in World Superstars when it launches on April 17th!
