2 Level 3 monsters
“If this face-up card on the field would be destroyed, you can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card instead. Once per turn, during the End Phase, if this effect was used this turn: Target 1 card on the field; destroy it.”
Just announced today is a new TCG exclusive Xyz monster called “Wind-Up ZenMaines”. This is kind of a surprise to see a card like this as a TCG exclusive. Rumor is that this card will be a secret rare in the new Photon Shockwave pack coming in November. The real question though is will Wind-Up Zenmaines be an extra deck staple or just another forgotten card?
In my opinion I think Wind-Up Zenmaines is pretty cool, it has impressive defense power for a rank 3 monster and a pretty strong effect. I think that Wind-Up Zenmaines will see a lot of play since it can stall and with a secondary effect like it has nobody will want to attack it. This also makes me think, could this card work in a Yubel deck some how since these kinda have a similar strategies? Maybe not but it is an interesting idea and I do see this card becomming a staple in the extra deck. You could also see this card coming in handy in Wind-Up decks, since you could use its effect then activate Wind-Up Factory. I can see endless possibilities for this card and I think Wind-Up Zenmaines will make a fine edition to any deck.
Do you guys think Wind-Up Zenmaines will be a useful card or will it be an over hyped card that will be forgotten? Please tell me what you think in the comments and tell me if you plan to use Wind-Up Zenmaines.
