Closing the week is Bahamut Shark, a Rank 4, Water
XYZ Monster, XYZ Summoned with two Level 4 Water
Monsters, and has 2600 attack and 2100 defense.
Once per tun, by discarding an XYZ Material, you
can Special Summon a Rank 3 Water XYZ Monster from
your Extra Deck. This card cannot attack if you use
this effect, but the new Monster you Special Summon
can, so it's not an awful trade off. Also I'll
point out that if/when the Special Summoned XYZ
Monster goes to the Graveyard, it can't be Special
Summoned as it wasn't properly XYZ Summoned.
Anyway, I looked up Rank 3 Water XYZ Monsters, and
here are notable ones you could use via this effect:
Mermail Abysstrite--really you would only see her in
a Mermail Deck, and she's only Japanese, but would
make a nice 2800 defender
Number 30: Acid Golem of Destruction--But you'd
only take Damage each turn it's on the Field, and it
couldn't attack since it had no XYZ Material
Number 17: Leviathan Dragon--Although it can't
increase its attack via its effect, but still has
2000 base attack, but can't attack directly
Submersible Carrier Aero Shark--who is rather
unremarkable, and only has 1900 attack
On his own, Bahamut Shark is a reasonable attacker,
and easy enough to summon. I wouldn't fault anyone
for playing him in a Water Deck.
Atlantean and Mermail decks got exactly what they
needed in the Xyz monster Bahamut Shark. Getting the
effect of Bahamut is just the icing on the cake. The
real value of the shark is in paying the cost with
one of the above Water monsters in order to get
their effects. Unfortunately for Mermails, the level
4 monsters are only good for pitching monsters to
the grave and for Altanteans we only have Atlantean
To be honest, rank 4 Xyz monsters are not the
easiest monsters for Mermail decks to make. They are
really good at making rank 3’s, and with the Field
Spell card, Lemuria, the Forgotten City, rank 5’s
and above. Obviously you can still use two level 4
Mermail monsters but you will not get the sent
effects so let’s explore the “sent” effect Water
monsters a little more. For Atlanteans we have
Dragoons, Heavy Infantry, and Marksman. For Mermails
we have only Abysshilde.
With Abysshilde on the field, you can remove Mermail
Abyssmander from the grave to increase Abysshilde’s
level by 1, and then summon or special summon a
level 4 monster. With Heavy Infantry, Marksman, and
even Abysshilde you can use the effect of Lemuria,
the Forgotten City to adjust their levels to level
4. Probably the easiest way to Xyz summon Bahamut
Shark is to summon Deep Sea Diva and special summon
Atlantean Heavy Infantry with her effect with
Lemuria on the field.
Now that we have Bahamut Shark on the field and have
used its effect, we need to summon a good Rank 3
Water Monster. We currently have only 5 monsters to
choose from: Mermail Abysstrite, Number 17:
Leviathan Dragon, Number 30: Acid Golem of
Destruction, Submersible Carrier Aero shark, and
Wind-Up Carrier Zenmaity. With no Xyz material
attached, only Mermail Abysstrite has the stats and
effects to make it worth summoning, unless you play
Creature Swap. Then Acid Golem would be a good
choice. With Mermail Abysstrite, you have a 2800
defender and when it is destroyed and sent to the
Graveyard, you can special summon another Mermail
from the Graveyard.
If you are running a Water deck then there is no
reason not to run Bahamut Shark with its 2600 attack
points. With Mermails at the top of the duel world
right now, the shark will be feeding on a lot of
Looking at Bahamut Shark, it has quite a few uses
and we're gonna find them all, I hope. You need 2
level 4 WATER monsters and once per turn, you can
detach a Xyz material from this card to special
summon 1 Rank 3 or lower WATER Xyz monster from your
extra deck, although that summoned monster cannot
attack that turn. A few cards you can get are Acid
Golem, Leviathan Dragon, Mermail Abysstrite and
Zenmaity. You can't attack with that monster, but
you can use its effect, if you have Overlay Regen,
or you can use Creature Swap on Acid Golem. Bahamut
Shark is strong enough to stand on its own, but its
effect to get you another Xyz monster is even
