[YU-GI-OH!] Card Of The Day #22 – Number C39: Utopia Ray
Number C39: Utopia Ray
Light / Warrior / XYZ / Effect Monster
ATK: 2500 DEF: 2000
3 Level 4 LIGHT monsters
You can also Xyz Summon this card by using 1 "Number 39: Utopia" you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials of this card.) You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; it gains 500 ATK and 1 monster your opponent controls loses 1000 ATK until the End Phase. You must have 1000 Life Points or less to activate and to resolve this effect.
Number C39: Utopia Ray is the cover card of “Order Of Chaos”, and like most cover cards it is far from one of the best cards in the pack. Usually you will be XYZ Summoning this the second way by using Number 39: Utopia as the XYZ Material since there isn’t any efficient way of getting three Level Four Light Monsters on the board to XYZ with, also the second condition only requires for you to use two cards (the original two materials) instead of three. If you do get it onto the board its Effect isn’t all that great, you can only use it when you are in the red and all it does is manipulate ATK. You can make it a little better by equipping ZW – Unicorn Spear to it to let it further dominate the Battle Phase but you are using up yet another card just to boost a fairly mediocre card.
Number C39: Utopia Ray seems to me a lot like Dark Magician Knight. It’s a cool card but you don’t gain a whole lot by playing it. With no real way to easily Summon Number C39: Utopia Ray and its lack luster effect I don’t recommend playing this card.
