Card of the day 25/10/08

Yes ladies and gentlemen its my first card of the day review. Lets start big with a new card from the zombie world structure deck. Lets make it a shint one.


Attribute: DARK
Types: Zombie/Effect
Level: Level 7
ATK/DEF: 2400/2000

You can Tribute Summon this card in Attack Position by Tributing 1 Zombie-Type monster. When this card destroys a Zombie-Type monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard, you can Special Summon that monster to your side of the field.

So what can we say about this big fellow? Well, lets try looking at it from the main decktype it is used in. Zombies with this card are even more pure evil than they ever were before. Not only do Zombies get Plaguespreader in CSOC* they have this bad boy which is a 1 tribute (If using a Zombie-Type monster as trib food) 2400 ATK Goyo Guardian. If that wasn't evil enough he is also searchable by Pyramid Turtle.

Some people may be thinking: "Well sure he is big and evil but is he really that great?" Let me set up a scenario for you. Say Zombie World is active. You attack your opponent's monster, whatever it is, it doesn't matter as long as it can be destroyed by battle. It goes down and you get to Special Summon it. Not only do you get to Special Summon it you get to put it in attack mode unlike with Goyo Guardian.

Try this as well. Zombie World is active. You have Pyramid Turtle on the field and your opponent has a Marshmallon or other such indestructible monster. Creature Swap and sac their Marsh for Red Eyes and attack your Turtle bringing out another Red Eyes. That's 2 Red Eyes and a Pyramid Turtle and you've done a total of 4800 damage while removing his monster threat, whatever it was.

In Zombie decks built around Zombie World or with a Creature Swap or two in the build, it is well worth sticking it into the mix. Of course, when the next top tier deck could conceivably be Zombies, then side decking a couple might not be a bad idea for other decks out there. After all, since Zombie World makes all your monsters Zombies you don't have to worry about being able to bring him out.

Zombie deck - 10/10
Other decks side deck - 7/10 Not always guaranteed to be facing a Zombie World style of Zombies, but if they use Creature Swaps then there's still good uses for it.
