Starglassed Crimson, Heaven Beyond
LIGHT - Rank 12 - Machine/Xyz/Effect - 4000 ATK/4000 DEF
3+ Xyz Monsters, including 1 Rank 10 or higher Xyz Monster / (This card is always treated as a "Sunglassed" card) Must first be Xyz Summoned (from your Extra Deck) by transferring all of the above cards' materials to this card so that it has 12 or more materials. This card and Xyz Monsters that have "Starglassed Crimson, Heaven Beyond" that was Xyz Summoned this duel as material gain these effects. ● Cannot be Tributed, nor used as material, except for a Xyz Summon of a monster with a different name than this card. Once per Chain, when a card or effect effect is activated (Quick Effect): Detach 2 materials from this card; negate that effect, also Xyz Summon 1 Xyz Monster (from this card’s Xyz Materials) with a Rank lower than this card by using it as material. (Transfer this card’s materials to the Summoned monster.)
For context, this is for a archetype I've been working on (and failing to PSCT because of not just the obviously weird effects on this card), I felt the boss monster was generic enough to showcase. You might be wondering "HOW DO YOU GET 3 XYZ MONSTERS OUT IN LINK FORMAT!??!" and while "yeah no ur screwed" usually, the main mechanic of the other Xyz is that they can be Xyz Summoned from the materials of another Xyz Monster, which isn't from the Extra Deck. Makes it so you can escape Link Format without having to resort to mechanics while doing so in a way only Xyz Monsters could do.They also have the gimmick of giving the monsters they're attached to their effects in a similar fashion to Star Drawing and some of the Zoodiac Main Deck, and if some are worried about Zoodiacs 2.0, I've been doing my best to make it not that. There is a Xyz Monster that can use only 1 material, but it can only use monsters with levels, and on its own is harmless.
As for this card, its Kaiju/Chimeratech proof, and it has a negation effect similar to LADD but with Rank-Down shenanigans. This is mainly to adapt a moment of Gurren Lagann I'd rather not spoil, but if you watched it then the way that you continuously float into the lower Rank Xyz should give you a hint as to what I'm adapting. Another weird thing is the lack of a Level/Rank requirement. This is because I don't particularly care about a gimmick that isn't exactly necessary to the mechanic, so I'd rather distance myself from it when it isn't necessary. The Rank in place of referencing the Level of materials now references the amount of materials needed for this card to be Xyz Summoned. Lastly I made it so to get the effects on your monster's materials you have to actually Summon the thing. I'd rather this card not get ruined by generic Extra Deck attaching, so that was added so that it couldn't be exploited in this manner.
It can negate anything and they can't Kaiju/Lair of Darkness it, but remember that the negation is mandatory and can deteriorate your monster to a point that it will lack the ability to keep going. Also remember that your opponent can quick effect respond to this card since its "Once per chain" similar to how LADD gets countered. I wouldn't say that its effect itself is not broken, but remember this is nigh-impossible even for the archetype to Summon in 1 turn. I'm guessing you could go crazy and and make a Deck with Link monsters to specifically Summon this, but at that point just run Herald of Perfection its a lot easier to Summon and a lot less punishing if it actually gets removed from field
Haven't posted in awhile since I haven't found a good reason too. I've been on Duel-Portal testing my cards, which has been very helpful in improving my ability to make cards and to recognize problems I wouldn't have otherwise. I do love this place that got me into this, so I'm planning to post more, even if its only once in a while in generics.
