Hello fellow Duelists, and welcome to a special card post! I normally talk about the attributes of various monsters, but today I’m mixing it up! We will be discussing the types of monsters in the game. Today, this post will go over one of my favorite types, Zombies. Zombies have been around since the game’s creation, and I love the various effects. Now, let’s do Ghost Kazuka (Bonz) proud, and unleash the ghouls!
- Pilgrim Reaper Type: XYZ/Zombie/Effect Attribute: Dark ATK/ 0 Def/ 0 Rank 6 Appearance: An ultra-cool skeletal monster with a huge scythe. Effect: Requires 2 Level 6 Monsters: This card gains 200 ATK and DEF for every DARK monster in either player’s Graveyard. You can detach one Xyz Material from this card; each player sends their top 5 cards from their Deck to the Graveyard (or their entire Deck, if less than 5). You can only use this effect of “Pilgrim Reaper” once per turn.
Here we have one of the most well made Zombie cards in existence! Its effect is incredibly good in multiple decks that require cards in the graveyard, and you can easily deck out your opponent this way. Also, Zombies are usually DARK attribute, so this thing could gain some massive stats quite easily.
- Plaguespreader Zombie Type: Zombie/Tuner/Effect Attribute: Dark 2 Stars Appearance: A small, disease-ridden ghoul. ATK/ 400 DEF/ 200 Effect: If this card is in your GY; You can place 1 card from your hand to the top of the Deck; Special Summon this card, but banish it when it leaves the field.
One of the oldest Tuners in the game, and also one of the best. It’s easily searchable by Allure of Darkness, and is mainly used in destructive Synchro plays. The card used to be limited to one because of how easy it was to make Synchros with.
