Photon Streak Bouncer V.s. No.25: Fullmetal Photoglide - Focus Force

Galactic Overlord released a lot of new Xyz monsters which boosted the Hieratics power. Among those Xyz, there are 2 rank 6 Xyz with unique "effect-negating" effects - Photon Streak Bouncer and No.25: Fullmetal Photoglide - Focus Force.
First, let us look as each effects:
Photon Streak Bouncer
2 Level 6 monsters 
Once per turn, when a monster your opponent controls activates its effect: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate that effect, and inflict 1000 damage to your opponent.

Number 25: Fullmetal Photoglide - Focus Force
2 Level 6 monsters 
Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card to target 1 face-up Level 5 or higher monster your opponent controls; its effects are negated until the end of the turn.

Both of them are quick effect monsters, meaning their effects can be used in either player's turn, and being able to activate during either player's turn means that it can activate anytime in a player's turn, be it draw phase, main phase, battle phase etc. The good point about streak bouncer is that it does not have level restrictions, but it is good only when it negates monsters with "Once Per Turn" effects, because monsters without OPT effect can activate again after it gets negated, like Brionac and Dark Armed. As for Number 25, although it has the level restrictions effect, it's effect lasts until end of turn so effects that are once per turn or no does not matter.

 Each of the following cards have their own targets in this meta,
Vs. Inzektor
Streak Bouncer: If you want to eat cards like Card Car D or Burn opponent life, this would be the most appropriate one, of course, if u don't meet any dark armed dragon. And at times it becomes a card that would mind-trick yourself because u can't really choose when to negate.
Number 25: Anything below level 5, it can't negate, but it's inzektors, hornet and gruf ups level so if they don't level up, I don't think there's really any threat.

Vs. Hieratic
None of it is really useful lol. Unless,
Streak Bouncer: You want to negate xyz monsters effects, and red eyes effects (If they are not 2800 atk).
Number 25: You want to negate red eyes effects.

Vs. Laval
Streak Bouncer: Not so useful against it because its effects activates either in grave or not once per turn
Number 25: Their monsters are all synchros so naturally level are 5 & above, negating Librarian is a good choice.

Vs. Rabbits
Streak Bouncer: The best choice.
Number 25: Useless as there are no monsters > level 4

If you are going to otk and you have a chance to make either one to stop effects,
Streak Bouncer: Negating Gorz and burn 1000 damage making OTK easier.
Number 25: If you met a tragoedia with 204024121293938133 atk power, of course this would be better as it makes tragoedia's attack and defense 0/0, so if you had a gaia dragoon on the field, it makes its pierce into a direct attack.

So each of them have their pros and cons, its up to the user to decide what to make.

Asia Championship is approaching in 2 weeks time, without book promos like gorz, tragoedia will be the most common defense, making Number 25 when you are otk-ing would be the better choice.

Number 25 + 2 Dragoon = 2800 + 2600 + 2600 = 8000 just nice

Thats all for today~~

Below are rulings for each of the following monsters:

Streak Bouncer

It can be activated during opponent's turn (Since it doesn't states like Number 25).

Its effect can be activated during damage step

Its effect can be activated on cards that activates on field, but are not on field during activation (e.g. Stardust Dragon).

The burn effect and negate effect activates at the same time.

Number 25

Legendary 3 words whether it can be activated during damage step

Cards that activate when leaving field (e.g Stardust Dragon) still loses its effect..

Q:このカードの効果を受けたモンスターのレベルが4以下になった場合、そのモンスターの効果は適用されますか? A:いいえ、この効果適用後にレベルが変化しても、そのモンスターの効果は適用されません。(12/02/19)
Cards that changed level (Damsel equipped with Hornet becomes Level 6), still loses its effect even if the level were changed.


First thing I thought off when I saw the art for number 25: how is a camera so strong

I prefer streak bouncer out of the both of them. Looking like something that got ripped from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann with a awesome effect is always a good Yugioh card
