Photon Shockwave Sneak Peak

So the Photon Shockwave Sneak Peek was a great & I had a great time at 4 Color Fantasies in Rancho Cucamongua. Although I did not stay for the complete event(because there was no prize for first place), I really enjoyed myself & so did all the other people that I attended the event with.  As far as what I pulled, I got a Ghost Rare Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon. That was about the only thing that I pulled & i was not too thrilled since 3 days before, I had bought 2 of the Galaxy-Eyes tins just for that card & the reprinted Solemn Warnings. Still the Ghost Rare does look pretty nice.

Sexy right?

Now i have to say that I actually like this card. I understand why people do not like this card. Who's gonna wanna tribute two monsters with 2000 ATK or higher?  Not me. But you don't have to go that route. I was lucky enough to be able to summon this card in all 3 matches I was in before dropping out.

Thanks to this little guy!

 Anyway, I like Galaxy-Eyes Dragons effect of removing itself & your opponents monster until the end phase.  Using that effect was what won me my last match at the Sneak Peek. Banishing Galaxy-Eyes & my opponents monster allowed my other weaker monsters to attack directly & avoid my opponents traps like Fiery Fervor. I'm using two Galaxy-Eyes in my dragon deck & it seems to work pretty well. It's easily SS with my Darkness Metal or NS by tributing a Totem Dragon.  This cards effect is a Quick Effect that targets one Monster on your opponents side of the field.  Its effect of chain-able to cards like Number 39: Utopia if your opponent negates the attack, Galaxy-Eyes gets a nice little boost in ATK at the when it returns to the field at the end of the Battle Phase. I like this card but that's just the opinion of a guy who likes to see the glass as half full.  The one card that i was looking for at the Sneak Peek & was able to get a play set of was Alexandrite Dragon.

Sooo awesome.

This card is just great in my opinion. Level 4 LIGHT Dragon with 2000 ATK.  This card can do some damage that wont walk away from.  I don't think I really have to explain it but 2000 attack points & being a Light monster can really make Chaos Dragons or any other Chaos deck hilarious. At the Sneak, a friend of mine was lucky enough to win one of the Sneak Peek mats which looks really awesome & I was able to acquire it for a couple bucks.

Along with many other people at the event, I was disappointed that the art of Wattcancel was changed from this:

To this crap:

And on top of that, Watt King Cobra is a Common & not Watt King Cobra but Wattcobra. My girlfriend was probably the person who was most upset by this since she had been looking forward to this pack for months since we learned Wattcobra was in it.  Well that's all I have to say about the Photon Shockwave Sneak Peak. It was a great time & i was able to get what I needed & a nice Ghost Rare of a card I like. Soon we'll be able to see the prices & impact of this new set of cards.
