Garveyard. When this card is sent from the field to
the Graveyard, add 1 Zombie-Type monster with 1200

Continuing the week, we go back to looking at cards
from Phantom's Darkness, We look today at Goblin
Zombie, a Secret Rare of the set, who I have rather
mixed feelings about. Goblin Zombie is Level 4 with
only 1100 attack and 1050 defense, who is a Dark
monster, and appropriately, a Zombie.
Now, first, if Goblin Zombie inflicts damage to your
opponent's Lifepoints, the top card of your
opponent's Deck is sent straight to the Graveyard.
That is usually a good thing, unless you're feeding
Dark monsters into their Graveyard to summon
Darklord Zerato, Dark Armed Dragon, or something.
However, with only 1100 attack, how often are you
going to inflict damage to your opponent?
Not very often. The second effect, however, is
certainly handy. When Goblin Zombie is sent from the
Field to the Graveyard, even by an effect of your
own, you can add one Zombie monster from your Deck
to your Hand that has 1200 defense points or less.
Spirit Reaper? Soul Absorbing Bone Tower? Those are
just a couple that come to mind.
Traditional: 2/5 Dark, yet a Zombie.
Advanced: 3.25/5 More solid, especially in Zombie.
This little guy gave everyone a reason to run
zombies again. his stats are less than impressive,
only able to tango with Sangan and live, but as
always, it's the effect that counts. He does have
two effects, but the effect of milling your
opponent's deck when he inflicts damage is not very
appealing. Your opponent will often WANT you to do
that, giving them access to their power cards. But
when he is destroyed, you get a Zombie from your
deck to your hand with a DEF of 1200 or less.
This effect does exclude Pyramid Turtle, but the
ability to get Zombie Master easily is a blessing.
You really do need the Master in the modern zombie
based deck, both to get things started as well as
continue the aggression. This little guy has all but
replaced Pyramid Turtle because of that fact, but I
think it is more likely that top players want their
decks all blinged out with Secret Rares rather than
a super, or common.
Tuesday - Goblin Zombie
Today we're reviewing a card that has received an
exceptional amount of attention in the past few
weeks because of its great uses in Zombie decks. For
one, Goblin Zombie is the Zombie's Witch of the
Black Forest. In case you don't know or weren't
around when this card was legal, Witch of the Black
Forest allowed so for multiple cards to be added to
the hand that would cause the opponent huge problems
later on in the game like Jinzo or Yata-Garasu. In
Zombie decks, Goblin Zombie can search out numerous
useful cards like Zombie Master, Il Blud, and Spirit
Reaper. Goblin Zombie has the potential to speed up
a Zombie deck by a lot, and it can also help the
deck to work itself out of multiple problems that
might arise. Overall, Goblin Zombie wouldn't be
included in a deck other than Zombies, but when it
is included in a Zombie deck, it can create
Traditional: 1/5 - We have Witch here.
In a Zombie deck: 5/5
man, I wish pojo had done something like the time
the team had to interview shapesnatch and they all
gave it a 5/5. But I guess today's card is a really
Goblin Zombie was just released in the new dark
deck. On the subject, that deck is the best place to
get cheap ddv, orc, and this. This can search out IL
blud, or Diabalos King of the Abyss. This is a
must-have in all zombie decks, and turbo is no
5/5 any zombie deck anywhere anywhen
Tuesday April 1st: Goblin Zombie
Happy April Fools everybody!
Today and for the rest of the week, we'll be
reviewing some of the OCG cards that made their way
to Phantom Darkness. Today's review is on Goblin
Zombie. Goblin Zombie is the latest of the best
supports Zombies need. Having a low 1100 ATK,
Goblin Zombie can mill the top card of an opponent's
deck whenever it does Battle damage. When Goblin
Zombie is sent from the field to the graveyard, you
can search for a Zombie with 1200 or less DEF and
add it to your hand
GZ's current targets (or best thereof) are Zombie
Master, Il Blud, Spirit Reaper, Vampire's Curse, and
itself. Now one could make an argument on how its
better to search it to the field in the case of
Pyramid Turtle, but that strategy has seperate
flaws. At times its better to have that Zombie
laying in your hands and adds as additional tutoring
support alongside Pyramid Turtle
Too bad its a secret. I would run 2 at most
Trad: 2.5/5 (Whether Zombies see play in Trad is
unknown to me)
Until Next Time
