Shiranui Solitaire 

Even another bad translated name can’t sour this amazing monster. Shiranui Sage, now Shiranui Solitaire for whatever reason, is an instant MVP of zombies. By being able to tribute any other zombie, including himself, he gains the player access to Level 1, 2, or 3 tuners from the deck (Scapeghost, Spectralsword/Plaguespreader, and Unizombie). And his combos are out of this world right out of the gate. Solitaire and Instant Fusion gets you a quick Trishula. Sage into Unizombie and then dump Spectralsword is a turn 2 Crystal Wing for no cost, and the list goes on. 

Sage is the perfect storm of form and function. He can search the deck to special summon a wealth of good monsters depending on any situation, and then he has an excellent second effect that harmonizes well. Used in combination with Shiranui Spiritmaster or Swallow’s Slash nets you big gains, especially if you’ve managed to get important pieces like Mezuki and Goblin Zombie into the graveyard already or you’ve already managed to banish monsters like Spiritmaster or Spectralsword. And the fact that he is a zombie is itself a huge perk, because there are so many ways to special summon him with ease. 

Solitaire gets the highest future rating I can give. Zombies have several tuners that make Solitaire a must, the best of which is Unizombie. But even if Unizombie were to get restricted or banned, Solitaire would just become more important, not less. I truly believe that zombies are just a card or two away from being tier 1 in the current meta, and Solitaire is a big reason why. 

Advanced: 4.5/5
Future Potential: 5/5

Shiranui Solitaire
 
Finally Zombies get a REALLY good card, and this one is a real ripper!
 
Essentially, this card could be likened to Lonefire Blossom... Except for the part where card designers got a bit more sensible and ensured that they put a "Once per turn" clause of each of this cards effects! Finally it seems, lessons of bad card designing from the past seems to be being learned!
 
The most likely target for the effect of Shiranui Solitaire currently is going to be Uni-Zombie, especially since that is able to further promote your Graveyard fuelling as well as manipulating monsters Levels.
 
This card is really going to help to take Zombies to new levels, and for those of you planning on playing any type of Zombie utilising Deck, this card is a must. Actually, this is one of the cards that most excited me about this set and makes me want to get back into some of my Zombie Decks.
 
Rating: 4.25. Good card is REALLY good!!!

Shiranui Solitaire is a good monster. It has balanced effects and functions independently in its own deck and in decks that want a Shiranui engine. It's weak for Level 4, but it's still worth running as a good way to make Synchro plays.

Shiranui Solitaire...a Fire attributed Zombie Monster.  There's something you don't see everyday.  This card, much like yesterday, isn't very strong.  Having only 500 attack and 0 defense.  So first off, you can Tribute this card, to Special Summon a Zombie Tuner from your Deck, so long as it has 0 defense.  And we don't need to tell you who you're taking with this effect, as this is obvious.  This card also allows you to target (note target) one of your Shiranui Monsters that's been removed from play and Special Summon it, and you can Special Summon two of said Monsters, if you have Shiranui Style Synthesis on the Field.  And you can use each effect once per turn, and I appreciate, even as weak as the card is, that you could use the effects more than once, if you can keep it on the Field.
