Personal Comment:
As the Synchro era is coming to an end, many people have debated if the new Xyz (pronounced "ek-seez") will be better and more powerful than the Synchro monsters that have dominated the dueling world.  Only time will tell.  I added Number 39: Utopia to my collection because it was one of the first Xyz monster to be released and it also gave me a chance to try him out.  The first thing you need to know is that Xyz monsters can't be used for Synchro Summoning because they are RANKS, not LEVELS.  In this case, Utopia is a Rank 4 monster that requires 2 level 4 monsters to bring him into play.  Once summoned, the two cards used become Xyz materials (which you place under the Utopia card on the dueling field).  While the stats are decent at 2500 ATK and 2000 DEF, the main purpose of this card is to hold off your opponent for two rounds when they have a beat stick above 2500 ATK in play.  Also note that once Utopia is out of Xyz material to discard, he will be destroyed by whatever monster attacks him (doesn't matter if it is a 100 ATK monster).  Overall, this is a useful stall card that you should try out and learn to play.  It will prepare you for things to come.  Because like it or not, the Xyz are coming.
