Today we get a rank 5 Xyz monster with a nice effect. Wind-Up Arsenal Zenmaioh may not be the best rank 5 Xyz monster in the game but if you have room for it with the ability to get level 5 monsters on the field, then this monster is for you.
 
The first thing we notice about this card is that is says to target 2 set cards on the field so there has to be two set cards to activate its effect. One or both of those cards could be yours, so if you have effects that activate when a card is destroyed or you just want to get rid of that one back row card or possible Ryko, just set one of your own cards. You could also use Book of Moon or Book of Eclipse (before you summon your monsters) to get the set cards you need.
 
The other thing we notice about this card is that it is a machine with 2600 attack. That makes it very useful with Limiter Removal to get to 5200 attack. There are better options for rank 5 Xyz monsters, but in the right situation, Wind-Up Arsenal Zenmaioh can mean the difference between winning and loosing.
 
Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5

Thursday on another Wind-Up week and w're taking a look at Wind-Up Zenmaioh. Zenmaioh is a Rank 5 Xyz monster, thus needing two level 5 monsters. It's a WIND/Machine type with 2600 ATK and 1900 DEF. The stats, very solid and can run over almost all the used monsters from Stardust, Monarchs, and almost all other Xyzs. Its effect is a good one. Once per turn you can detach one Xyz material from Zenmaioh to target 2 set cards on the field, and destroy them. Book of Moon is very helpful here. Being able to wipeout 2 of your opponent's set cards is good, not having to worry about set monsters with nasty flip effects, or those set spell/trap cards. Need two level 5 monsters? Wind-ups Dog and Soldier can make it happen. Also Cyber Dragon and The Tricky can do the trick as well. #PlayOnWords. While it's not a popular as Zenmaity, Zenmaioh is stronger and can clean a field of your opponent's cards. I like it.

Thursday:

Wind-Up Arsenal Zenmaioh
Rk 5/WIND/Machine/2600A/1900D
"2 Level 5 monsters
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card to target 2 Set cards on the field; destroy them."

FINALLY! A W-U that can be splashed into any deck, so long as you can get 2 Lv. 5 monsters on the field at the same time.

W-U Arsenal Zenmaioh has a very useful effect, as it can destroy S/Ts and Monsters, so long as they're facedown. Combo-ing this with Swords of Concealing Light can really hose over the opponent. He also works well against an opponent who likes to use a good number of traps and set Spells. His stats are fairly good as well, so you can make him serve as the muscle of the W-U deck.

He's highly useful and I wouldn't be surprised to see him splashed into the extra deck of non W-Us.

Tradional: 3.5
Advanced: 4.25

Spring Disguised Attacker Zenmaioh!
 
A Rank 5 Xyz is not an easy task, a feat usually only accomplished in the average Deck with a combination of Cyber Dragon and Monster Reborn. I also would like to stress that having "Wind-Up" in its name has limited significant value outside of activating Factory of Zenmaighty, as oftentimes other Wind-Up support cards go unused.

As splashable as this Power Ranger is and as unlikely as you will be exploiting the "Wind-Up" in its name, I'm not denying that compared to the other Rank 5 Xyzs, it certainly has a high destructive power. Wind-Ups do not have difficulty to Summon this, and they will definitely be running it alongside other Rank 5 Xyzs. This is the Wind-Ups' brawniest attacker and is their tool to eradicate any face-downs you have. It's a liability that is says exactly 2 facedowns

It's not easy to Summon, but when you can do it, you won't be disappointed. And Wind-Ups can play this down more easily that other Decks.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3.8/5
Aesthetics: 3/5 Shiny card art and pretty colours hurt my eyes!! DX But I suppose it's a reference to how it's the real boss monster of the Wind-Ups; you can see how it has components from the other three WU Xyzs. Oh, oh, oh if Tori from the anime/manga were to Duel, she should TOTALLY use the Wind-Ups. Number 88 can be a Wind-Up and then Yuma, Tori, and Kite would have this epic three-way [Duel].

Philosophy Corner: Why should you do it? Because you want to. Why would you do it? Because you can.

Wind-Up Arsenal Zenmaioh, continues in the line of Wind-Up XYZ Monsters.  This is a Rank 5 XYZ Monster, XYZ Summoned with two Level 5 Monsters.  Also a Wind Monster, with 2600 attack, and 1900 defense.  Now obviously we have a wide arsenal of cards that can change the Level of a Monster requiring you not to actually use Level 5 Monsters.  As for what this guy does...by detaching an XYZ Material from this card, you can destroy two set cards on the Field.  Interesting here with this Monster it HAS to be two cards, not up to two.  So that gives your opponent a way to work around this.  So your opponent could set just ONE card and know you can't destroy it.  However, this Monster lets you destroy ANY set cards, as long as its two...yours or your opponent's, so maybe the power still lies in your Hand.  More often than not you obviously don't want to go around destroying your own cards, I'm merely stating you have said option.

Ratings:

Traditional:  2.25/5

Advanced:  3.25/5

Art:  5/5
