Wind-Up Zenmaister, a Rank 4 Xyz Monster, (and you all know how I feel about Xyz Monsters) with 1900 attack and 1500 defense, both excellent base statistics, and of the Earth attribute (meh), and actually a Machine.  Now, Zenmaister is Xyz Summoned with two Level 4 Monsters, which is simple enough, as at the very least, the two we looked at this week are Level 4, and essentially garbage.  First, this card gains 300 attack for each Xyz Material it has, since it starts with two, that 1900 attack becomes 2500, which is quite awesome.  However, again, even if this is automatic, referring to Creator of the Point System, why not start with something that has 2500 points?  Anyway, by detaching an Xyz Material from himself, you can flip a Monster you control face-down, and then put it back to face-up Attack position during the End Phase.  I'm under the impression (if only because the card doesn't say otherwise) that this can work during either player's turn, which is a bonus, if true.  Furthermore, it adds a bit more playability to the earlier cards this week, as flipping them down and back up should allow their effects to be used again.  As I believe I've mentioned before, Xyz need a card that lets them move Xyz Material from one card to another, like Magic Counters, or something of that nature.  Even for how this more or less brings the Deck together, it's still not impressive.

Ratings:

Traditional:  1.75/5
Advanced:  2.75/5
Art:  5/5

Wind-Up Zenmaister

Closing the week is the Wind-Up boss monster, Wind-Up Zenmaister. Zenmaister is a Rank 4 Xyz Monster, requiring 2 Level 4 monsters. He comes onto the field as a 2500 attacker, which is solid, and his effect lets you detach 1 Xyz Material to flip one of your monsters into face-down Defense Position and then it flips into Attack position in the End Phase. He probably won't see much play outside of Wind-Ups, since not many decks benefit from flipping their own monsters. With Wind-Up Magician, Zenmaister becomes very easy to summon, and his effect lets you reuse the Wind-Up monsters' effects. Since he does go in the Extra Deck and he's pretty easy to summon, there's no reason not to run two or three of him.

Traditional: 3/5 (Probably some cool Thousand-Eyes Restrict combos here, basically he's another Tsukuyomi)
Advanced: 3/5 (Outside of Wind-Ups), 4/5 (Within Wind-Ups)
