Tuesday

Ban List week continues with Mezuki, who went from being Restricted to Semi-Restricted. The obvious reason here is to make up for the Banning of Card of Safe Return. My theory about that is pretty much the same.
Zombies weren't THAT powerful.

Banning Card of Safe Return made about as much sense as Restricting Mezuki last Format. As for Mezuki himself, the 1700 attack is respectable, Earth is decent, although a bit odd on a Zombie, and removing himself to Special Summon another Zombie is good too.

Having the extra Mezuki obviously helps the Zombie Deck, but one extra doesn't replace Card of Safe Return...Zombie Decks are still going to be around the top this Format I expect, but I'm not sure if they will be number one.

Ratings:

Traditional: 3.5/5 Earth is bad
Advanced: 4.5/5
Art: 4/5 Zombie animals!
General Zorpa Mezuki

This guy is a level 4 EARTH Zombie with 1700 ATK. The effect is that if he is in the graveyard you can remove him from play in order to Special Summon one Zombie in your graveyard. This is MADNESS, or Sparta I can't figure out which. This card was used in one of the single most dominant OTK decks that have ever been made. Actually, I am thanking my lucky stars that Brionac has not reached our shores yet.

This card allows you to play cards like Dark Grepher, Zombie Master and Plaguespreader Zombie to their full potential, slinging away cards and then bringing them back even before their graves were dug. This card will see a lot of play. In fact, I am predicting that Zombie decks could be one of the better decks out there once the format solidifies.

Without Card of Safe Return this is not as good as it was, but still can be ridiculous in the right circumstances and amazing even in the wrong ones. you do not even have to discard him, you can just use him as basically a floater that will do amazing things in the right situation. In short, this guy rocks and will catapult Zombies light years into the forefront of the gaming elite.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-5/5

Today’s card up for review is Mezuki. Just by reading the card, you should see how valuable this card is to Zombies. A competitive Zombie deck would be based off mass summoning, and is a solid choice to search for. Using Burial From The Different Dimension just abuses this card even further. Get Mezuki and Plaguespreader in your yard, and you are just going to explode, and if you have a Burial in hand, it will be a massacre pretty much haha. Simply put, you use this card if you use Zombies

Trad: 3/5
Adv: 5/5

Mezuki ...

Man, Mezuki is a good card ... (anyone else suspect that Mezuki is in actually Gladiator Beast Darius who was killed and brought back as a Zombie??? ... Seriously - compare the two!)

Anyways ... 1700 ATK is passable on a 4 star monster. It can fight and dish out some respectable damage when it has to. But Mezuki shines when he's in the graveyard. Like any good Zombie he has fun being dead, and removing him from the graveyard allows for a special summon of any other Zombie monster from your graveyard. No restrictions. No limitations. No catches. A very simple ability that opens up a whole plethora ("Jeffe? ... What is a 'plethora'?") of moves and combos. Combos that usually result in the quick end of an opponent ... Thus ... this is why we're reviewing him this week.

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 5/5

Its Tuesday and todays Card of the Day is Mezuki, one of Zombies biggest assets. Between Plaguespreader Zombie and Mezuki, Zombies still have plenty of Synchro Summon possibilities as well as its swarming ability. Being able to send Mezuki to the graveyard with Zombie Masters effect as well as with Foolish Burial, and being able to search it with Pyramid Turtle helps speed things up. Mezuki has two flaws however. Most players now are running one or both D.D. Crow and/or The Transmigration Prophecy. The second Mezuki hits the graveyard, most players would play The Transmigration Prophecy and send it back to the deck. D.D. Crow would be more of a risk, since zombie decks use Burial from a Different Dimension to return removed Plaguespreader Zombie and Mezukis back to their graveyard, however if they only have one copy of Burial to use in their hand or on their field(if set), D.D. Crow can take care of Mezuki the second time it hits the graveyard. Having weaknesses while in the graveyard are natural though, and Mezuki is an absolute must for any Zombie deck.

Traditional: 5/5
Advanced: 5/5
