Unizombie

 

A sequel to Three-Legged Zombie, a card that was the innuendo of the ages.  Unizombie is a Tuner that can manipulate levels, and has a built-in Foolish Burial effect.  Zombies can also handle the discard, though this card doesn't inherently +1 for the deck.  It will make way for lots of combos for numerous  Zombie variants.  Will it make them top tier?  Probably not.  But it's a very big boost for them overall.

 

3.5/5

Uni-Zombie is an interesting little card.  This guy is supposed to make XYZ Summoning easier in a Zombie Deck.  At a glance, he's not very spectacular.  1300 attack on a Dark, Level 3 isn't anything to write home about.  You're allowed to target a face-up Monster on the Field, discard a card to the Graveyard, great for Zombies, and increase that cards Level by 1.  Secondly, you can target a face-up Monster on the Field, and then none of your non-Zombies can attack this turn, but that card also has its Level increased by 1.  Each effect can be used once per turn.  If you're running a solid Zombie Deck, try him and see if he works for you, but I doubt you'd need more than 1.

Uni-Zombie

While this will not break Zombies by any means, I certainly see this as a step in the right direction since it has the potential to remove the need for Zombies to use selective mill cards such as Mathematician or Foolish Burial as well as even remove the need (in some instances) for more random milling cards such as Kuribandit or Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter.

This is most primarily though because Uni-Zombie is well… A Zombie! Rather than when using other monster cards, this means that it can be Summoned from the Graveyard with Zombie support cards such as Book of Life or Zombie Master and it can also be recovered with Recurring Nightmare. 

Because of Uni-Zombie’s effect, it allows you to more easily make higher Level Synchro’s, rather than by using Plaguespreader Zombie, as well as being able to be used in a Rank 4 Zombie Deck… The one that uses Blue-Blooded Oni… Or in a Deck like Vampires that Summons Rank 5’s. But even being able to fill the Graveyard with useful Zombie’s more easily is more than reason enough to use this card.

The downside to the 2 different effects of Uni-Zombie is that in the first instance, you must discard a card to increase a monsters Level, and as Zombies generally use Zombie Master already, finding discards may be just a little harder to do, but since the card discarded can be any type of card, using the effect is more easy to fulfil. Using Recurring Nightmare in a Zombie Deck does become a little more practical now though… 

As for the second effect, which allows you to selectively send a card from your Deck to your Graveyard so that you can increase the Level of 1 card on the Field, which while at face value it may seem to be a total inconvenience because of the “Oh no! I cannot attack unless I use a Zombie-type monster(s),” the fact is, Main Phase 2 exists for a reason! 

In addition a more “secret” (it isn’t really “secret”) effect of Uni-Zombie is that you can use it to increase the Level of one of your opponent’s monsters… Potentially preventing them from Synchro or Xyz Summoning during their next turn. And while this would certainly be a move of desperation or clever creativity, at least it is always an obscure option that may present itself once in a blue moon.

More likely though would be using increasing an opponent’s monsters Level so that you can send a card from your Deck to your Graveyard without changing the Levels of your own monsters…

Doing so could be most applicable if you were going to Synchro Summon into Black Rose Dragon “Bomb” the field, Summon some Zombies, attack and then Synchro or Xyz into whatever is most useful to help you survive through your opponent’s turn. 

While Uni-Zombie is only ever going to find a place in Zombie-type Decks, Zombie Decks such as Skull Servants, Vampires or even Chaos Zombies will be able to make good use of Uni-Zombie.

And for those of you who like to make more obscure type Decks, look no further than using this to boost your Burning Skull Head Deck. 

RATING: 3.75. The 2 most important elements to Uni-Zombie is that it’s able to replace or be used as well as Mathematician and that it’s a Tuner. It can also be used in place of Plaguespreader Zombie, meaning that it doesn’t take up Deck space if you were already using Plaguespreader Zombie.

Surprisingly, it is only a Common, so being able to get a playset will be very easy Zombie fans.
