Closing out the week is Thunder Sea Horse, an interesting little Monster in the often neglected and forgotten Thunder family.  Thunder Sea Horse is a Level 4, Thunder Monster, with 1600 attack and 1200 defense.  He's a simple Monster, who lets you discard himself, to replace with two Level 4, Light type, Thunder Monsters, with 1600 attack or less, and of the same name from your Deck.  You can't Special Summon in the turn you use this effect, and you can only activate it once per turn.  The effect is a +1, so I figure that makes him worthwhile, especially in a Deck with the "Hunder" Monsters we reviewed not too long ago.

Thunder Sea Horse is a monster that works well with the Hunder monsters Ma, Pa, and Sis who we reviewed a short time ago. The other theme that Thunder Sea Horse works well with is the Watt monsters. Using Photon Veil in these decks can net you three Thunder Sea Horses and using their effects will then net you a plus two after three turns and allow you to search for the monsters you need. Deck thinning and searching are always a good thing in Yu-Gi-Oh.
 
You can also use some draw cards to help you get to the cards you need, like Pot of Duality, Reckless Greed, Cardcar D, and Pot of Avarice. Currently, there are just a few monsters that meet Thunder Sea Horse’s requirements as Light Thunder monsters are sparse. Sense I do not see the above decks as being very relevant in today’s game, my ratings will reflect Thunder Sea Horse’s impact on the game. Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Our last card of this short holiday week is a personal favorite of mine. Thunder Sea Horse is a level 4 LIGHT/Thunder-type monster, with 1600 ATK and 1200 DEF. This card gives almost any Thunder deck a real good shot in the arm. 
 
You can discard this card; add 2 level 4 LIGHT Thunder-type monsters of the same name with 1600 ATK or less from your deck to your hand. You can only use the effect of Thunder Sea Horse once per turn. You cannot special summon the turn you activate this effect. 
 
Thunder Sea Horse's stats are alright for a level 4, but since it's a LIGHT monster, it can team with Honest to make sure it wins a few more battles. Once per turn you can discard Thunder Sea Horse to grab 2 LIGHT/Thunder monsters of the same name with 1600 ATK or less. It's like Thunder Dragon and Photon Veil made sweet love. Here's where Sea Horse gets good. You can grab cards like 2 Batteryman AAA, any of the three Hunder monsters, Voltic, Vylon Prism, a few Watt monsters or even 2 more Thunder Sea Horses. The only place I can't see this card really doing what it does well is in a Batteryman deck, as there is only 1 level 4 Batteryman and it's AAA. In a Hunder and Watt deck, this card will flourish as you have plenty of targets to choose from. Thunder Sea Horse is LIGHT and that is the halfway point for Chaos monsters. This card (if you can get one, cause I can't) is a great reason to build a Thunder deck, I already started working on mine....just need 2-3 of these hard to freaking get cards.

Okay, let me start with restating the first part of the effect: "You CAN discard this card." I kept misreading that part at first. :P

Anyways, TSH is meant to be a deck thinning card more than anything else. There's not a huge number of cards that match the requirements for his search effect, so you won't get a lot out of him. To be honest, The only main use I can come up for him is to thin out an Exodia deck to make drawing the pieces that much easier. All-in-all. not the best searcher because of the restrictions upon him, but usefull in a low-power Thunder deck, such as a Batteryman or Watt deck, I suppose. Thunder hasn't ever been a monster-type I've paid much attention to, to be truthful.

Traditional: 2
Advanced: 2.5

Happy Thanksgiving, all!
