Hello Pojo Fans,

Exosister Mikailis is our final choice of card to review and the only Xyz we are reviewing of the Exosisters.

Generic Rank 4 with generic Rank 4 ATK power, Mikailis has some protection to her, keeping with the theme of the deck to hate against stuff from the graveyard. While that isn’t too likely to come into play, any protection is better than none. On the turn she’s Xyz Summoned Mikailis can do some spot removal via banishing a card on the field or in the grave. You will likely always choose the field because it is more applicable to your current situation, but it isn’t out of the question to take away a resource in their grave. The 1-for-1 Exosister Spell/Trap search is a good way to get to the cheap cost spells and trap in the archetype, and would allow you to provide further offense during your turn. With all three of the four cards searchable with Mikailis being able to be played during your opponent’s turn, you have many options with how to use your Spell/Trap you search with Mikailis.

Mikailis is the strongest Xyz Exosister for now in the TCG. Easy to summon, good 1-for-1 deck search option, and has at least some form of protection. Her ATK will keep her safe against Main Deck monsters, but you’ll need some help against bigger stuff. Can’t help but think a negation ability would’ve been better than the 1-for-1.

Advanced-3.5/5     Art-4/5

We had to get to at least one of the Xyzs at some point, so the week will end off with what seems to be the main Exosister Rank 4 you want: Exosister Mikailis.

Mikailis is a Rank 4 LIGHT Warrior Xyz with 2500 ATK and 1800 DEF. Pretty good stats for a Rank 4, LIGHT is still great, and we trade Spellcaster for what might be the equally good Warrior typing. Any 2 Level 4s summons this, so generic. This cannot be destroyed in battle by monsters summoned from the graveyard, which is fine protection considering this isn’t a massive boss monster you put a ton of effort into summoning. Each effect is a hard once per turn here. First off, you get a Quick Effect on the turn it was Xyz Summoned using an Exosister as material, letting you target and banish a card the opponent controls or is in their graveyard. Quick Effect banishing is a pretty good form of removal, even if it does target. Too bad she can’t trigger your Exosister effects herself here since it isn’t the opponent moving the card from grave. If you do get the opponent to help you by triggering your Exosister effects, then this would be really nice to have on the opponent’s turn, but on your turn it’s pretty good still. Second effect lets you detach a material to search an Exosister Spell/Trap from the Deck, likely getting you to Pax so you can search any other card you want and thin the Deck of two cards instead of one. Mikailis is probably the best of the Rank 4s in a pool of monsters that on their own are pretty solid already. You do run multiples of each Exosister Rank 4, but this might be the one you would want to make sure you got the most of.

Advanced Rating: 4/5

Art: 4/5 Kinda like the Main Deck art style better over the Xyzs, simple is key sometimes.

My review for yesterday is up.  Anyone who knows me should know I’ve always taken pride in being regular and on time with my reviews.  My problem right now is I start doing these Thurs/Fri and do the weekend and whatever is next and forget to check back for the rest of the week until it’s too late.  

Anyway, Exosister Mikailis is a Rank 4 XYZ Monster to end the week.  Light/Warrior is a great pairing, 2500 attack is good enough (1800 defense meh) and XYZ Summon only requires two generic Level 4s…not two of the Sisters, for whatever reason.  Let’s see…Battle Immunity from Special Summoned Monsters from the Grave is…something.  This is incredibly easy to play around, in multiple ways, of course, but I do appreciate seeing protection.  A Quick Effect lets you Target and remove a card from your opponent’s Grave, or a card under their control.  Both are welcome and each will have a place.  Note, however, you do have to have used a Sister (as you should) as XYZ Material for this Effect.  Secondly, detaching an XYZ Material nets you a Theme Magic/Trap from your Deck.  A nice, fair and honest 1-for-1 there.  Pax is certainly more versatile for that, but it’s still plenty easy to accomplish here.  She’s a solid card without being broken, and I always like that too.

We close off the week with arguably the most important XYZ monster for Exosisters, Exosister Mikailis, a rank 4 LIGHT warrior XYZ monster. It’s generic and only needs 2 level 4 monsters, so you can technically make this in any rank 4 deck. 2500 attack is on the high end for rank 4s, so it’s a decent beater compared to how easy it is to summon, with 1800 attack being mediocre but fine for a rank 4.

Mikailis is yet another example of modern boss design, functioning as both a disruptive monster and an extender depending on the situation. It can’t be destroyed by battle by monsters special summoned from the graveyard, which is nice but largely irrelevant unless you’re facing something like Zombie pile or Ogdoadic, as most decks will pull their bosses straight from the extra deck. Both effects are hard once per turn. Mikailis’s first effect can only be used on the same turn it was XYZ summoned and if it was summoned with an Exosister monster; it can target and banish a card from your opponent’s field or graveyard. Quick banishing is always pretty strong, and while the requirements seem a little strict, they shouldn’t be much of a hassle in a dedicated Exosister deck. Mikailis’s other effect is more relevant on your own turn, allowing you to detach an XYZ material to search any Exosister backrow. If you need to extend your plays, you can search Exosister Pax and, more often than not, get another Exosister on the field, either for its own effect or as XYZ fodder to make Number F0: Utopic Draco Future. Alternatively, you can grab Exosister Vadis for a more explosive play, assuming that you’re confident you can get it to trigger. Overall a great card for Exosisters though they’ll still need more in the long run.
