Orbital 7

CBLZ-JP020 Orbital 7
4 Stars/LIGHT/Machine-Type - Effect/500 ATK/2000 DEF
When this card is flipped face-up: Place 1 "Yessir Counter" on this card. You can remove all "Yessir Counters" from this card; this card's ATK is 2000, cannot attack directly and is sent to the Graveyard during the End Phase. You can Tribute this card; add 1 "Photon" or "Galaxy" card from your Graveyard to your hand.

More Photon/Galaxy support card which is much needed because the Kaito theme is so weak.

The usefulness of this card is not the effect but its stats.

Being a Machine type with 500 attack means it is another target for Machine Duplication. Photon decks are already running Machine Duplication for Photon Satellite and Cyber Valley anyway. Also another Debris Dragon revival target after Galaxy Wizard.

As a Light type monster, you can get XYZ summon Radiant Photon Paradios which is so good. Monster effect negation and making the monster into 0 ATK forever. On top of that, if Paradios is destroyed and is sent to grave by your opponent, you get to draw a card similar to Card Trooper. You can also summon Shock Master which is one of the most broken XYZ around. And don't forget Constellar Omega.

Best card to take back from grave is obviously Photon Thrasher which is one of the most splashable card in a long time.

I think the deck should be able to flow better as a Rank 4 XYZ spam deck now instead of the intended Rank8GalaxyEyesXYZwtfbbq.deck

The only problem with this deck concept is how vulnerable it is to Maxx C. Since everything is so small, if you dont make big monsters you will get over run easy. Unlike windup which is super rewarding when you do the Magician Shark combo.

- Machine Duplication 
- Photon Paradios and Shock Ruler made easy
- Friends with Photon Thrasher
- Also friends with Debris Dragon who is already friends with Card Trooper


  1. Lol, they're actually turning the anime character into a monster? Hilarious.
    For the rest, it's a nice addition to the Kaitotheme.

  2. How does Photons run Card Trooper?


  4. Wouldn't it be a nice idea to run Cyber Eltanin in Photons? I use two on my deck, since it runs, valley, satellite and now Orbital.... Just my two cents...

  5. Did think about it, but space is rather limited in the deck since everything is in 3s. I'm still thinking how i am squeezing in the Orbitals lol
