XYZ Monsters are usually tough to summon without any cards that support them, but they can often end up being worth it if you succeed in summoning them. Some of the most popular ones include Number 39: Utopia , Number C39: Utopia Ray V , Number S39: Utopia the Lightning , or even Evilswarm Exciton Knight . Unfortunately, summoning any of these XYZ monsters is usually an almost impossible task for your average beginner due to their hefty costs. However, there are a few XYZ monsters that are much easier to summon, but which still pack quite a punch!

Strongest xyz monsters for beginners

  • Smile Universe

Level 6 LIGHT Fairy Effect Monster (ATK 2300)

When this card with Xyz Material is sent to the Graveyard: You can Special Summon 1 “Cardian” monster from your Deck. If you control a face-up “Cardian” monster, your opponent cannot target monsters for attacks, except this one.

Smile Universe has 2300 attack points, a great amount for a level 6 monster. While you can only special summon a Cardian from your deck with its effect, that can still be extremely powerful if played at the right time. To get this guy out fast, run cards like Tune Warrior and One for One . If you have a few strong level 5 monsters to discard, you can bring this guy out for a measly 1-card investment!

  • One for One

Normal Spell Card

Discard 1 monster from your hand. Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower “Black Feather” monster from your deck. Blackwing – Kris the Crack of Dawn immediately comes to mind, but you can also use Giantrex, who will give your opponent a headache with his trample ability.

  • Starliege Lord Galaxion

Rank 8 LIGHT Machine Xyz Effect Monster (ATK 3000)

2 Level 8 monstersIf this card battles an opponent’s monster, any battle damage it inflicts to your opponent is doubled. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; its ATK becomes half its current ATK.

  • Galaxion

is a powerhouse machine with an attack of 3000 and the ability to cut down your opponent’s monsters by half! This guy can do serious damage when combined with Black Rose Dragon and Crimson Blader . Because of his high attack, you can also use him to get rid of pesky cards like Stardust Spark Dragon or your opponent’s most powerful XYZ monsters.

  • Crimson Blader
  • Red Dragon Archfiend with even more attack points (3000), but it does not have any effect that can help you out.
  • Gachi Gachi Gantetsu

Level 3 EARTH Rock-Type Effect Monster (ATK 100)

When this card is Normal Summoned: You can Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower “Gachi Gachi” monster from your Deck in face-up Defense Position, except “Gachi Gachi Gantetsu”.

When the other monsters are able to get over this one’s effect, you can then blow them all away with Mobius the Frost Monarch , who will destroy all cards on the field! This is just another card that you can use to help out your other Xyz Monsters, and ensure that they do not get destroyed.

  • Number 5: Doom Chimera Dragon

Rank 6 DARK Dragon Xyz Effect Monster (ATK 2400)

2 Level 6 monstersOnce per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls with less ATK than this card; destroy it, and if you do, inflict damage to your opponent equal to the destroyed monster’s ATK on the field. After that damage is inflicted, while the destroyed monster is in the Graveyard, all monsters your opponent currently controls lose 400 ATK.

  • Doom Chimera Dragon

is a powerhouse monster that is able to easily destroy your opponent’s monsters and make their life points drop as a result of the battle. It can also punish your opponent for having weaker monsters on the field with its effect, which will weaken all of them by 400 attack points!

The only flaw in the effect is that it can’t affect face-up Xyz Monsters, but with all of its other qualities, this card is still extremely powerful. Use this guy as a one-two punch with Number 11: Big Eye to steal your opponent’s monster and attack again!
