Formerly known as Shaddoll Lizard.
Flip Effect – Destroy 1 monster
Graveyard Effect – Send 1 Shaddoll from Deck to Graveyard
It's graveyard effect is quite important.
In some situations, it may seem circular.
Why dump a monster if you're just going to
use that monster to dump another monster.
For cards like Sinister Shadow Games, this
may be true, although who would not like an extra
target in the graveyard for Shaddoll Falco?
The main point of Squamata's effect is to
essentially allow you to dump the whichever of the
other 4 you want.
Mathematician cannot dump Shaddoll Beast.
But it can dump Squamata which can dump
If you use it for Shaddoll Fusion, you can activate any of the
other Shaddoll effects from your deck.
So, it basically acts as Beast/Falco/Dragon/Hedgehog
in your hand for the purposes of discarding via card
It serves as monster removal, as well, with its flip effect.
Monsters are often floaters, and therefore,
Squamata's monster removal isn't as important as
Dragon's spell/trap removal.
But it still helps you clear by those hard to
get monsters, especially ones with high ATK.
It's also a LV4 with a good 1800 ATK, so it
can work for Rank-4 plays.
All in all, well-rounded.
Power – 3/5 ; Helps the consistency of the deck.
Versatility – 5/5 ; Between
milling whatever monster you want, monster removal,
being a beater and a LV4, it's pretty diverse.
3/5 ; It does kinda depend on what's in your deck
and whether there's anything you want to remove on
the field, but it is all around self-sufficient.
Card Advantage –
3/5 ; Like the other Shaddolls, this is a 1-for-1,
that can plus.
However, removing a monster is a weak
The graveyard effect is quite nice though.
Speed – 4/5 ; High marks on this one.
Now you don't have to wait to draw Beast,
Falco, etc as this card can emulate them.
Traditional – 2.5/5 ; It's a
DARK and it helps consistency.
Advanced – 3.75/5 ; A core part of the deck
that may not be as devastating as the others but
Mechanic Design – 4/5 ; Quite good.
I feel it is the most unique and complex of
all the Shaddoll monsters due to it having a diverse
range of functions.
– 3/5 ; Pretty cool dinosaur-bones kinda vibe to it.
A bit scary.
Monster-removing card which can essentially emulate the others
