Welcome to the only card that isn't junk this week, Blue-Blooded Oni.  We have a Level 4, Dark attributed, Zombie Monster, with 1000 attack and 1700 defense.  Zombies seem to have support out the ass, but fortunately, this isn't very good, even though it supports Xyz too.  You can detach an Xyz Material Monster from a card to Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Zombie from your Graveyard.  Aren't there far easier and superior ways to do this?  Yes--there are.  Oni isn't a Tuner, so he loses playability there, he isn't an Xyz, so that effect just wastes and kills off an Xyz sooner.  The Special Summon isn't a bad thing, it just is fairly painful to do.  I wouldn't use this in Xyz or Zombies...

Blue-Blooded Oni is the new Zombie Master, and he really doesn't hold back. Instead of being a beater, he's a defender, and instead of discard a monster, you detach one. Zombies have no problem making Xyz Summons, with Goblin Zombie (which works under the new rulings, like Sangan) and Zombie Master, along with Mezuki, and even Book of Moon. They've got plenty of ways to get to Utopia, Roach, Zenmaister and the like.

You can use the new summon to make a second Xyz with Blue-Blooded Oni (and another Goblin Zombie search), or you could revive Plaguespreader for a Synchro--or you could revive the Zombie Master you just detached and then summon another Zombie after that!

And this isn't a once-per-turn effect, either. Zombie players, go get your three Onis now!

4.3/5
Art: Some bats are cute. Not this one.
Fun Fact: "Blood" isn't getting censored out of names any more.

Finally some more zombie support. Zombies have always been a force to be reckoned with. They haven't been seeing as much play as they used, but even so they still manage to top an event every now and again. With the release of XYZ monsters zombie decks finally get the well deserved boost they need. Unless the rulings about material hitting the grave changes then Blue-Blooded Oni will be just another useful tool for this next generation of zombie decks. BB Oni can be search through many means; such as pyramid turtle, and sports fairly forgettable stats. It switches to defense mode upon normal or flip summon...which is also quite forgettable. Its useful effect would be sending attached XYZ material to the graveyard to special summon a level four or lower zombie type monster in said players graveyard. Thats pretty dam good, and allows for multiple monsters to hit the field leading to more XYZ summons. BB Oni gives zombies just another boost that may help them get back in the top tiers; which they are not far from to begin with.
Overall, zombies may have a larger presence in the months to come.

Blue Blooded Oni
 
Today's card actually looks like it could actually be a help to Zombie decks. Oni has a pretty cool effect, using an Xyz monster's materials to special summon Zombies from your grave. If you keep Oni on the field long enough, he could result in quite a bit of advantage. With 1700 defense, he could be on the field for a little while. Zombie decks I've seen lately utilize Tour Guide from the Underworld to Xyz summon as often as possible so combo all those Xyz summons and Blue Blooded Oni, you could be special summoning a lot. After testing the deck myself, Oni unfortunately isn't fast enough. He either ends up being a dead draw that I discard for Zombie Master or remove for Allure or sits in my graveyard because I have better plays. Oni has some cool combos and could be in Zombie decks, but I doubt you'd play more than 1 if any.
