2700 2000 Rank 6 Light Warrior
Level 6 x2
When a monster your opponent control's effect is activated, you can detach 1 xyz material to actuvate this effect. Negate the activation of that effect and deal 1000 damage to your opponent's life point. This effect can be used once per turn.
Since it has a good effect, and is bigger than most level 6 monsters (which is exactly the point why one exceeds).
And now, Neo Galaxy Eye Photon Dragon
4500 3000 Rank 8 Light Dragon
3x Level 8
When this card is successfully xyz summon with Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon, negate the effects of all other face up cards. Once per turn, you can activate this effect by detaching 1 xyz material from this card. Remove all xyz material your opponent controls, and during this turn, this card gains 500 atk for each card remove this way. Furthermore, during that turn, this card can attack a number of times equals to the number of xyz material detached by this effect.
Basically, this guy just wanna remove all of Hope's xyz material and attack twice with 5500 attack, and win. How are we gonna get 3 level 8's out again? Maybe the new level 8 Dragon normal monster if it has 0 attack, with Ancient Rules and Inferno Reckless Summon?
So, people are playing Bubbleman again (according to Dueling Days), haven't been looking at the HERO beat deck list in a while.
Bubbleman has always been a good HERO card, and became way more playable in HERO decks since advent of monster exceeds. Fishtank had played a number of him in his deck to go for Hope since the YSD.
Good update on the current trend as usual. Too bad the card doesn't have a foil OCG version.
