Mermail Abysstrite is a Rank 3 XYZ Monster, and a Water attributed Sea Serpent, with 1600 attack but an incredibly awesome 2800 defense. She is XYZ Summoned with three Level 3 Monsters. Make no mistake, this girl is good, adding a lot of good things to an all ready powerful Archtype. When exactly one face-up Mermail Monster you control is targeted for an attack, or with an effect of a Magic or Trap card that could have targeted this card, by discarding an XYZ Material, you can switch the attack or target of said card to this card. It would be nice if the effect wasn't so specific, ie it didn't have to specifically target just one face-up Mermail, but protection is always a good thing! Furthermore, when destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, you can Special Summon a Mermail Monster from your Graveyard. Excluding the present company of course, She does lots, protection, Special Summon, you definitely play her in the Deck.

Let’s look into another Mermail Xyz monster that came in Cosmo Blazer. This monster’s effect is a huge wall of text which isn’t normally a bad thing. Let’s see if this wall of text actually does something good.

Mermail Abysstrite
Attribute- Water
Types- Sea Serpent/ Xyz/ Effect
Rank 3
3 level 3 monsters
During either player's turn, when your opponent targets exactly 1 face-up "Mermail" monster you control for an attack, or with a Spell/Trap effect that could have targeted this card (except during the Damage Step): You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; that attack/effect now targets this card. When this card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 "Mermail" monster in your Graveyard, except "Mermail Abysstrite"; Special Summon that target.
ATK/1600 DEF/2800

Abysstrite can help to protect your other Mermail monsters from attacks and effect’s that target outside of the damage step. Also if this monster is destroyed and sent to the grave you can special summon another Mermail monster from your grave other than this card. This monster does look like a bad card at first because it needs 3 level 3 monsters to make. This card is actually pretty good when combined with Bahamut Shark. The shark can special summon Abysstrite and then she can be used as a defensive wall or a way to bring back your monsters. It really is a pretty nice card that can be very useful in a Mermail deck if you run Bahamut shark. Without this shark, Abysstrite isn’t worth using at all.

Advanced: 3.5/5
-In Mermail decks this card is a good card. Just make sure to use Bahamut Shark if you are going to use this card.

Mermail Abysstrite
Water/ Sea Serpent/Xyz/Effect/Rank3/ 1600/2800
Level 3 monsters

During either player's turn, when your opponent targets exactly 1 face-up "Mermail" monster you control for an attack, or with a Spell/Trap effect that could have targeted this card (except during the Damage Step): You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; that attack/effect now targets this card. When this card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 "Mermail" monster in your Graveyard, except "Mermail Abysstrite"; Special Summon that target.

Next up we have a Mermail Xyz monster Mermail Abysstrite. Mermail Abysstrite is already off to a good start being a Rank 3, so it’s easy for Water decks to get out, but it is also a Rank 3 with 2800 DEF! That is going to protect your life points for quite a while. Also it has two effects, so let’s look at them.

The first effect is very similar to the trap card Shift. Let’s be honest no-one ever played Shift when it first came out and no-one plays it now, but make it a monster effect and things change. For 1 with that high DEF it will make the opponent think twice about attacking. Also it might help get off effect number 2.

Mermail Abysstrite’s second effect requires it to be destroyed and sent to the grave.  If it is you can special summon any other Mermail monster from your grave. Another good effect, with no restrictions barring it has to be a Mermail monster.

Overall two really good effects, easy to summon and really good DEF, means that this will see plenty of play in WATER decks.

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 4.5/5
