Dark Paladin
Wightmare, a Level 1, Zombie type, Dark attribute monster, these are all reasonably good things.  300 attack and 200 defense, are crap, in short, and this guy isn't even a Tuner, and it's hard to think many low Level, non-Tuner monsters have much playability, isn't it. 
 
Now, while in the Graveyard, this monster's name is treated as Skull Servant.  you can discard this card to activate one of these two effects...Select a removed Skull Servant or Wightmare and return it to your Graveyard.  Or second, you can select a removed The Lady in Wight or King of the Skull Servants, and Special Summon it.
 
This is all really interesting, as Wightmare can actually be trouble for the couple Decks that it can actually be used in, but, neither of those Decks happen to be the most playable.  Nice enough support, but poor execution I think...

Tuesday is double pun day! You're having a Wightmare! Discard it and special summon that King of the Skull Servants you removed through another King or Allure! Now you probably have two giant Kings! Woohoo! 2000 extra ATK in one discard!

Skull Servants use Magical Merchant to dump as many Skull Servant cards as possible into the grave. Then, they go crazy with cards like Book of Life and Zombie Master. You summon your bulky Kings and end the game in one or two Battle Phases. Thanks to Wightmare, you have more speed, more Skull Servants, more fuel, and more potential.

4.5/5
Art: British zombies?

Nameless

Here’s a new addition to our favorite zombie archetype, the skull servants: Wightmare. Having a very meek attack and defense, this card doesn’t really hit the field. Instead it stays in the hand, giving it an advantage. This card, being able to be discarded and either special summon a monster or add another monster to your graveyard (excluding itself) is very broken in this deck style.  This card has many targets to choose from in its case, because when using King of the Skull Servants or Mezuki, cards get removed from play all the time. But, on the other hand, it is a dead draw at the start of the game and can easily clog your hand. Also I mentioned earlier that its stats are, well… To put it bluntly, they stink.  This card is an essential for any skull servant deck… Very essential.

Traditional: 1.5/5
Advanced : 3/5
Art:  Tea time!


The
Crowing

The Skull Servant deck, just wont die will it? Here we have Wightmare, a play on the words Wight, which is skull servants name in the OCG and Nightmare, which is associated with zombies. He has the exact same stats and level as Skull Servant and is treated as him in the grave. Which sounds useless, but it's to set up King of the Skull Servants. His first effect is you can discard him from your hand to return King of the Skull Servants or Wightmare from your RFG to your grave, for those keeping track at home, this makes any Kings of the SS up by 2000 if any are on your field. his second effect is you discard him to special summon a King or Lady in Wight from your RFG. So if any of them got Dimensional Prisoned or removed by the Kings own effect.

Traditional:2/5 anything that cant be used for insane OTK combos is useless in this format. However Tradional DOES have Graceful Charity and Painful Choice

Advanced- (Skull Servant Decks only) 4/5, he adds moar attack to King of the SS and brings back any that got removed, so its really good.

Art: Definatly one of the more laid back looking Zombies ive ever seen.

Wightmare …
 
I like it. It gives a little ‘oomph’ to a deck subtype that’s  never been very popular but always seemed like it would be fun and possibly even decent if someone ever made a real go at it. It adds fuel to the Skull Servant fire, not only being treated as a “Skull Servant” in the graveyard, thereby boosting the ATK of King of Skull Servants to wild new heights, but also by being able to discard itself to the graveyard, via its own effect, to do so! – Nice!
And then not only that – u can either A) return  more Skull-fuel to your grave which was removed from play to boost things further, or B) special summon back from out of play your Lady in Wight – aka – ‘the Wall of Protection’, or the King, whose ATK should be through the roof right now.
 
Yeah, I’ve convinced myself. I’m gonna take a shot at building this thing.
