Mermail/Atlantean is one of my favorite Decks
ever. I got my first national invite with it back in
2013, and I loved the amount of options and power it
had behind it. Powercreep eventually got the better
of it, but Neptabyss, the Atlantean Prince helps the
Deck perform a lot better.
Searchable by One for One and Deep Sea Diva (both
Limited, unfortunately), Neptabyss can send an
Atlantean to Graveyard in order to add one to hand.
In other words, you’re triggering an Atlantean while
also adding one to your hand; a common target for
both effects is Atlantean Dragoons. And if that
wasn’t enough, if he’s used as cost himself, he
revives an Atlantean (like Dragoons). Combined with
Mermail Abyssmegalo, the amount of advantage he
generates is tremendous.
This is one of the best cards in Mermail/Atlantean
Decks now by a significant margin, and he helped
improve the Decks speed and power to points where
you can deal up to 12000 damage in a single Battle
Phase. Unfortunately, the Deck still struggles with
common matchups like PePe and Kozmo, but ultimately
it’s in a much better spot and is once again a
Hello Pojo Fans,
“Mermail” decks were once at the top of the Tier 1
choice list of decks to use. Alongside Atlantean
monsters, Mermails were vicious. With Neptabyss,
the Atlantean Prince released to the TCG, the
Mermail archetype may be coming back.
The Prince doesn't boast much for ATK or DEF, but
how it combos with WATER monsters is why it may be
what the type needs to make a comeback. Ditch an
Atlantean monster to pull an Atlantean monster from
your deck. The monster that comes to mind first is
Atlantean Dragoons. Ditch Dragoons to get another
Atlantean, then add a Sea-Serpent monster to your
hand as well. Heavy Infantry destroys a face-up
card, and Marksman will destroy a set card all while
Atlantean Prince will add another Atlantean to your
Regarding Mermails, Prince can be discarded for cost
for any Mermail monster, and, in addition to the
effect of the Mermail, Prince will Special Summon
another Atlantean monster (except itself). Abyssleed,
Abyssmegalo, Abyssteus all Special Summon off
discarding Prince, while Abysspike can discard it
when it's summoned to get you a search.
Searchable, easily summoned, and compatible with the
WATER monsters that made Mermails top tier,
Atlantean Prince is just what the deck needed.
Weenie monster takes the win! Naptabyss, the
Atlantean Prince is small. He comes in as a Level 1
Water Sea Serpent-type Monster with 800 Atk and 0
Def. These are very lackluster stats. His name has
interesting components of abyss and atlantean, so he
gets all that support. He needs to be Water so he
can satisfy 'Water monster's effect." This card is
only Ultra Rare because of its effects.
Neptabyss, the Atlantean Prince has 2 and a half
effects. Why? because the cost to activate the first
effect triggers other good effects. The cost is to
send any other Atlantean monster from the Deck to
the Graveyard. That in and of itself is good for
Deck thinning at the very least. It will also
trigger other Atlantean effects. Then, after paying
that no-lost-resource cost, search any other
Atlantean from the Deck to your hand. Further Deck
thinning is good, searching without the condition of
being Normal or Special Summoned is good, and the
artwork is good. I couldn't think of a third thing.
The second effect triggers when Neptabyss is used to
activate a Water monster's effect. Special Summon an
Atlantean from the Graveyard other than himself. So
all of his effects and costs can only be used once
per turn and they all exclude himself. Personally, I
would love to see a real duel that uses Catapult
Turtle's old effect to Tribute this for 400 Damage,
and then some other Atleantean from the grave for
even more damage. Sadly, they nerfed Catapult Turtle
to once per turn. Regardless, this prince is still
great for Atlanteans.
As a huge fan of Water decks in general, but moreso
the Sea-Serpents, I believe I have just found my
Neptabyss, the Atlantean Prince is a truly awesome
card for its theme. It thins the deck by sending one
Atlantean from deck to grave, then grabs another
Atlantean-themed card from deck to hand- and yes,
that includes Spells and Traps. Of course, it
doesn't work on itself, but you don't want to give
this card too much power- he is just a prince, after
all. Then, if you sacrifice this card for the effect
of another Atlantean card, you can special summon
one Atlantean from the geave. And if you're smart,
it'll be something big like Poseidra, or something
versatile like the Dragoons. Whichever one you've
picked from the deck to the Grave, it'll get them
out that much faster and give your opponent a run
for his/her money. At least, I hope it would; you
don't see many competitive Water-themed decks
nowadays outside Nekroz. Here's hoping that Prince
Charming here will help turn the tide in the Sea
Final Score: 5/5, but restricted to Sea Serpent/Atlantean
