Happy New Year! I like Ultimaya Tzolkin, I do,
but that name. Anyway, It comes to the field with
some interesting stats, It is a level 12 (kinda)
Dark Dragon-type Synchro Monster with 0 Atk and 0
Def. The Level is 12 as card text which is weird but
necessary I think. All the other stats are somewhat
disappointing. At least it has many effects.
So in some hybrid Synchro/XYZ deck where everything
is the same level, it might be easy to Special
Summon this card. All you need are 2 monsters with
the same level on the field to be sent to the
Graveyard. One of them must be a tuner and the other
not. For your troubles, you get an effect to Special
Summon any Level 7 or 8 Dragon-type Synchro Monster
or Power Tool monster from the Extra Deck when you .
Finally, while there is another Synchro Monster
face-up on the field, Ultimata Tzolkin cannot be
targeted by any attacks or effects.
I have some problems with these effects. Many of the
monsters you would want to Special Summon don't get
their effects because they aren't properly Synchro
Summoned. They can't even be revived later. Also,
when they get to the field, the protection is only
for Ultimata Tzolkin. In fun 5Ds based decks,
getting out those dragons will be fun. In most
decks, there are probably better uses for the Extra
Deck space. I like Ultimaya Tzolkin, I just like
many other monsters more.
Our first card in the new year is a doozie, if I
do say so myself. For starters, this Synchro card
doesn't even seem to have any stars on its art! But
then its effect reads that its original level is 12.
Confusing? If you're new to the game, maybe. See,
Synchros are usually summoned by monsters whose
levels add up to the number of the Synchro monster
being summoned. Tzolkin works differently; it
doesn't matter if its synchro fodders' levels add up
to his, you just need a Tuner and a non-Tuner with
the same matching Level- the only catch is, they
both have to be Level 5 or higher, and most Tuners
are Level 4 and below. Fortunately, high level
Tuners aren't that hard to find these days.
Once you've managed to get through the hard part of
summoning this bad boy, then things get fun. Once
per turn, when you've set a Spell or Trap card, you
can then special summon either a "Power Tool"
Synchro or level 7 or 8 Dragon Synchro, without the
requirements of their summonings! Also, this card
cannot be targeted for battle or by card effects, so
let's no as you have one other Synchro on the field.
Theoretically, you can have a whole legion of
high-powered Synchros on the field! Doesn't that
Maybe, if you're the type who plays Dragons or cards
with the words "Power Tool" in them exclusively.
The bottom line is this: Ultimaya Tzolkin is great
in concept, but it's summoning requirements and
limited resources may turn many players off. I say
give it a go if you're ambitious.
Final Score: 2 / 5
