Leviair the Sea Dragon is one of the more interesting XYZ Monsters out there.  Its a Rank 3 XYZ Monster, XYZ Summoned with two Level 3 Monsters, and a Fish type, ironically enough of the Wind attribute, with 1800 attack and 1600 defense.  Leviair allows you to, by discarding one XYZ Material Monster, Special Summon a Level 4 or lower removed from play Monster, to your side of the Field.  Special Summoning is good, but I don't see this as the most splashable of XYZ Monsters.  I certainly see it having a place now that Black Luster Soldier is legal again, and Psychic Decks could likely have some fun utilizing this card.  The attack is very good for a Rank 3, and it can certainly make things easier, despite obviously being dependant on removed Monsters.

Advanced:   2.75/5

Leviair the Sea Dragon

There are two choices for good Rank 3s now--Leviathan and Leviair. It's really a Brionac/Gaia Knight kind of thing. You go with Leviathan if you have nothing good to do, and Leviair if you have a target. In a metagame filled with Chaos cards, expect a lot of banishing to be going on. Most of those are small cards that Leviair can summon, like Tour Guide from the Underworld and Effect Veiler (a Tuner).

It can summon your opponent's cards or your removed combo pieces.If you have this card, you're definitely running it, and if you don't, you're probably looking for it.It's a great card for this format. The only problem is his really low ATK. That's quite a problem. But it's still worth the effect.

4/5
Art: Do I like it? Do I hate it?
Fun Fact: Less than 3 weeks until Legendary Collection 2!
Tomorrow: We haven't even scratched the surface of GENF.

Leviar, what is there to say that has not been said already? This card started off moderately priced and just grew and grew as more people found ways to just abuse this card. Agents get back any number of banished monsters; Infernities can now loop Mirage through Hundred Eyes and then return it with Leviar, plant synchro revives Lonefires or Dandylions used by Spore, and that is just the tip of the iceberg. Requiring only two level 3 monsters this is an instant Tour Guide play. This card will become and likely already is a staple in any extra deck. Not to mention that he can grab banished monsters from either player.

Leviair the Sea Dragon

This is one of the new Xyz Monsters, coming in at a Rank 3, requiring 2 Level 3 monsters. To put it bluntly, this guy is broken. Putting two Level 3s on the field is very easy to come by nowadays thanks to Tour Guide from the Underworld and a few other cards. Leviair's effect lets you detach an Xyz Material to Special Summon a Level 4 or lower banished monster. It doesn't matter whose it is, as long as it doesn't have a summoning restriction. This card is seeing play in just about every single tournament-ready deck, and for good reason: it's way too easy to summon. The usual Tour Guide into Tour Guide/Sangan play still exists, but it's not as broken now thanks to the ruling change for Xyz Monsters. Leviair is also easily Summoned with many commonly seen cards: Dandylion, Lonefire Blossom, The Agent of Creation - Venus, T.G. Warwolf, Genex Ally Birdman, Infernity Necromancer and a few others. Leviair's effect is a +1, which often ends up initially as a break even after you summon him, but using his effect twice will give you advantage, not to mention that the monsters you summon with his effect will often generate more advantage. There are some nifty combos you can do with Leviair to put you in a great position, especially since Black Luster Soldier - EotB can give you a free monster to reuse with Leviair. An 1800 attack body is also very useful, making him a floater that creates pluses. He's too good not to run unless your deck cannot possibly make him.

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 5/5
