Zoodiac Whiptail

 

So, on Monday, we had the enabler of the deck. Today is the surprise and Friday is the muscle. Zoodiac Whiptail is the only card in the theme that can be considered a trap. For the most part, anything the theme does is in the open and with purpose. Zoodiac Combo is the only trap card it has claim to, and it doesn’t exactly frighten the opponent. So besides Maxx C or a standard trap, Whiptail is the only way you could surprise the opposite player.

 

If you run Zoodiacs, you run three Whiptail. 1200 ATK is the best you can ask for outside of Thoroughblade, and her ability to attach and then banish anything it battles is exceptional. She’s very much necessary filler for the deck, but the monster is no slouch and is an obviously superior option over monsters like Bunnyblast and Ramram. In fact, I not-so-secretly feel like Zoodiacs wouldn’t be anything close to what they are if Whiptail hadn’t been part of the lineup, but you could probably say that about a lot of the cards.

 

Unlike the rest of the Zoodiac monsters, Whiptail has some minor potential for future decks. Since she operates like an Honest for beast-warrior XYZ monsters, there’s definitely something to be said for that effect. There are quite a few, namely Fire Fists and Bujins. It’s not much, but if someone were to ask me which Zoodiacs they should keep once they’re no longer tier 1, I would say Whiptail, since its entire effect doesn’t reference Zoodiacs even once. She’s the only one of the twelve Zodiac sign monsters that can say that.

 

Advanced: 4/5

Future Potential: 2/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Zoodiacs are finally here and today we're taking Zoodiac Whiptail.
 
Another Zoodiac that is widely targetable by several sources: Giant Rat, Tenki, Invoker, etc., Whiptail can become an Xyz material monster from your hand our the field via its own effect. With Zoodiac Xyz monsters gaining and losing ATK/DEF depending on which Zoodiac monsters are attached to them, refueling their material resource is important. Attack with Whiptail, then attach it to a Zoodiac Xyz and increase its ATK for more damage that turn. Attach it from the hand on your turn for a surprise boost and take down an opponent's attacking monster. Remember though, you have to do this before the damage step (as it does not mondify ATK).
 
Banishing an opponents monster eliminates resources and avoids destruction or sent to the grave effects. Less targets for reborn effects is always a good thing, and with so many decks using the grave as an inherent part of their strategy, taking away a monster for them to use will always be welcome. Also, Whiptail's effects works with any Beast-Warrior Xyz, giving this card a wider range of play beyond Zoodiacs.
 
 
Advanced- 3.5/5
Art- 2/5
 
Until Next Time
