Zoodiac Barrage is as big of a card in the Zoodiac
build as Ratpier.
Destroy a card you control, special a Zoodiac from
the deck. Pop itself and bring out Ratpier to
start your combo, or any Zoodiac for that matter,
with Barrage you have an instant Zoodiac Xyz Summon
coming up. If you fire this card off, or it's
destroyed while you have a Zoodiac Xyz on the field
already, this card will attach, giving you another
material for it to use. When attached, you can use
this to detach to activate your Zoodiac Xyz effect
and not drop its ATK/DEF.
This one card, along with Ratpier, are the keystones
to the Zoodiac deck, and MUST be played in a set.
TOOO STROONNG, CAN"T CONTAIN...Zodiac Barrage is
a Continuous Spell Card that simply disregards the
concept of balance. First, when activated you can
target to destroy any card you control as effect to
then Special Summon any Zoodiac monster from the
deck. Sure you can only use this effect once per
turn, but Ratpier and Whiptail love to be on the
field, and then they love to be XYZ Material. Since
the card targeted is destroyed by effect, it can
activate any and all of its own grave effects.
Second, if Barrage is destroyed by an effect and
sent to the grave, it can attach itself from the
grave to a targeted Zoodiac XYZ Monster as Material.
I'm not mad, it's just so good it hurts how other
cards call themselves support while this exists. So,
try to own three because that's where this meta is.
This is one of the KEY cards for Zoodiac's, and is
an absolute 3 of Staple in anything Zoodiac due to
the fact that it has an otherwise zero real cost or
The first effect of this card is for the most part
the only effect that is of real significant
importance since this is the card that gets it all
going... Barrage is able to destroy any "Dead" or
unneeded card on the field, but this card can also
target itself for the effect, ensuring that you will
always have the sufficient payment required to use
this card effectively.
Zoodiac turns often start with a Barrage play, and
this is certainly one of the cards that you as an
opponent hope to either not see, or at least have an
out that can be activated either before your
opponent can use this cards effect, or that you have
something lined up that can negate the effect of
And in addition to the first crucial and very
powerful effect, when Barrage is destroyed you can
attach it to one of your Zoodiac Xyz's as an Xyz
material, allowing you to use effects of those Xyz's
that you may otherwise not be able to, or simply
stacking on extra Xyz materials for later use... I'm
thinking Drident here.
Rating: 4.75 The ONLY weakness that this has is that
it is a Continuous card, and that makes it
vulnerable to MST, TwTw and Typhoon before it can be
activated, otherwise this card is extremely good...
The only card that I can think of comparing this
card to in strength of effect is A Hero Lives, and
that is most certainly a very good, albeit extremely
