Zodiac Beast is a new archetype revealed in Raging Tempest (RATE). People think they're bad (mainly r/yugioh and /dng/). Too bad they are wrong, because the amount of combos and field flood this deck can perform is absolutely ridiculous. Yeah they lose to Kaiju and Raigeki and whatever but so does every deck, and the KAIJU excuse is so overdone.
I assume people already read the cards and thus I will not go on a long ramble like MegaCapG about how this deck is great and how its gonna be the best thing ever blah blah. So here's a summarized analysis of every Zodiac Beast card
S/T - Only good card is the one that e-tele a zodiac from deck which you get molmorat to start your combos the trap is better than avarice but you don't want to clog too much the field is s*** don't bother
Drancia - THICC AF WAIFU (1-3)
Tigress - You play it because you need to combo or you are a pedophile with s*** taste smh tbh fam (1-2)
Bullhorn - Contend among the best, literally could almost replace tiger king if it didnt lock you from dropping Hirume (1-3)
Wildbow - You'll never trigger it (1)
Ram - Nah (0)
Rabbina - s*** taste (0)
Thouroughblade - only run 0 or 1 and that is because you need it for the good stats (0-2)
Viper - Pretty good tbh (3)
Molmorat - The MVP of the deck, lets you combos, perform wacky s***, etc. What was konami printing this when they made this card? (3)
The true MVP though, is Speedroid Terrortop
Yeah this ain't a zodiac card, but the ability to go into invoker and then drop molmorat from deck is straight up ridiculous. This card is the enabler to almost every combo in so many decks, and it shines the best in zodiacs. There are number of things that bothers me when people say Zodiacs are bad, for example,
DRACNEA TARGETS AND DESTROY FACEUP - First off, yeah it pops and destroys but its DURING EITHER PLAYER'S TURN. That itself is good enough to disrupt plays. All these shitters who said its bad just don't play the game and is merely participating in internet arguments for the sake of their Ego
OMG TERRORTOP IS BROKEN - Yeah terrortop is broken, and?
WHY DO YOU RUN BEARMAN - This guy on r/yugioh doesn't even take one look to read the goddamn card
IT DIES TO KAIJU - Every deck does?
MAXX "C" - Yeah run Bubble Crash or Heavy Slump or just Manticore of Darkness your way out
TERRORTOP DRAW 3 IS SO BROKEN - Yeah that is pretty cool, but you know that there are OTHER combos you can pull off in zodiacs besides just dropping gianttrainer right? If you go second you cannot use giant trainer, you have to kill your opponent's field so you make titanic or something like that. There are much more annoying fields that can be established with a 1 card terrortop than just a 2800 vanilla, a 1600 vanilla, and a 0 atk quick pop.
This chart below I guess is to show what Zodiac Beast I can do. I was going to write a combo list but seeing the chart is better for me as I waste less time and better for you as you can learn it yourself instead of needing to be spoonfed.
Anyway yeah discuss Zodiacs also this is not endorsed by Ted Cruz.
EDIT: Oh s*** my man jacobblue pointed out a mistake
I forgot to remove nirvana high paladin thats a 2 card combo for it to work, this does not work as a 1 card combo.
EDIT #2: Hi r/yugioh, more is coming tomorrow
