Welcome to another week of various Abyss Rising goodies!  We're nearing Christmas, and the end of the year, and faithful followers should know that means a Top Cards of the Year List!  That will start next week and take us through and to 2013!  There's no theme per say this week, although we did end up with three Mermail cards, beginning with Mermail Abyssmegalo.  This is a goon, at least in appearance.  We have a Level 7, Water attributed, Sea-Serpent with 2400 attack and 1900 defense.  Level 7 obviously requires two Tributes, A Legendary Ocean would make this a Level 6 Monster with 2600 attack, which is better.  That point becomes fairly moot, because if you Tribute, you don't get it's effect.
As for said effect, you can Special Summon this card (from your Hand) by discarding two other Water Monsters from your Hand to the Graveyard.  I'm assuming since (minus ALO) it would require two Tributes, they put two discards.  Sure, it would still be a Level 6 in your Hand (via ALO) but you still have to discard the TWO Monsters, via its own effect to get the rest of this going.  If you are successful in Special Summoning Abyssmegalo via its effect, you can add an "Abyss" Magic or Trap card from your Deck to your Hand.  
Certainly a useful and good effect there, but there's more.  You can tribute a face-up attack position Water Monster for this card to attack a second time during this Battle Phase.  I don't believe, as this seems relevant, that it has to attack twice in a row.  If you successfully activate this effect, you can attack twice, I suppose in any order you choose (at least until I'm told otherwise).  It's still a Special Summon that gets you a card from your Deck, and can attack twice.

Apparently, if you want to build one of the best decks in the game, you are going to have to spend some money, pull amazing, or make great trades, because most of the cards you need to build Mermail decks are ether Secrets or Ultras. We will be looking at some of the key cards that you will need from Abyss Rising to make the new Mermail/Atlantean deck.
First up on our list is the Secret Rare Mermail Abyssmegalo. Abyssmegalo is the perfect match for the Atlanteans. By discarding 2 Atlanteans to the graveyard, you can summon Mermail Abyssmegalo, get both of your Atlantean effects, and then get an Abyss Spell or Trap card from your deck. That card is usually Abyss-Sphere. With Abyss-Sphere, you can get Mermail Abysslinde and then get Mermail Abysspike for more shenanigans.
Abyss-Sphere is not the only Abyss card that you can search for, even though it is the card of choice. You could also search for Abyss-scorn, squall, strom, scale or the Cetus, and scale of the Kraken to do things like negate traps and effect monsters and for more special summoning.
Mermail Abyssmegalo’s greatest benefit is in its discard effect and not in its summoning. The summoning is just icing on the cake. As good as the Atlanteans are, their biggest issue is that they need to be discarded by a Water monster to get their effects. Mermails fulfill that need and Abyssmegalo does that at a supercharged rate. While doing all of the things above, Mermail Abyssmegalo loads the graveyard with Water monsters making way for the special summoning of another secret rare card that we need in our deck called Moulinglacia the Elemental Lord.

A new week starts us off with a very hot and hard to get card for the Mermails, Abyssmegalo. You can use this card card's discard effect to not only get a pretty big monster on the field, but it works well for getting the "I was discarded" effects that some of the Atlantean monsters gets, such as Heavy Infantry and Marksman. You can also use Salvage to get back whatever two monsters you used to get Abyssmeglo on the field. Need to get it to your hand? Use one of my favorite cards, Slushy to grab it. Another added bounus for special summoning this card through its effect is getting a Spell/Trap card with Abyss in its name. That is handy, but it let's your opponent know what you are up to. It's final effect lets you tribute a face up attack position WATER monster you control so this card can attack twice. For a 2400 ATK monster, that isin't bad, but you are giving up field control to hopefully not run smack into something like Dimensional Prison or Mirror Force. But I can see why this card is a must for the Abyss/Mermail deck. If you have this card, you are either using it, or selling it on Ebay.
