Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth...say that five times fast.
Superancient? All right, anyway...this is a very interesting monster, and I believe I like Levia Dragon better than this, but more on that later.

Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth (SDKC for short) is a Level 7 Water montser, who is appropriately a Fish, with 2800 attack and 2200 defense.

Now, once per turn, you can discard one card (of any type) from your Hand to Special Summon as many Level 4 or lower Fish-type monsters from your Deck as possible. That's good, as it gives you other monsters, if only to protect yourself, and this monster.

However, the monsters you choose to summon can't attack, and if they have an effect(s), they are also negated. That sucks, in my own opinion. So, what the hell do you use them for? You can tribute them to negate the effect of a targeting Monster, Magic, or Trap card against only SDKC...

He IS a decent enough card for Fish Decks, but Fish are still lacking some solid support, sorry folks. If you use a Water deck, I'd stay with Levia/A Legendary Ocean, etc.


Traditional: 1/5 Worthless in Traditional

Advanced: 2.25/5 Nice idea, poor execution.

Art: 4/5

Finally, a really good fish monster. BTW this was a COMMON in Japan. He is 7 stars, which is great and a WATER monster, and you all know how much I love WATER monsters. He is a Fish, which is less than desirable, but hardly counts against him. With 2800 ATK he can hang with the best of them and even tango with DMoC. However his effect is what sets him apart. He gets to discard one card from your hand in order to Special Summon as many level 4 or lower Fish type monsters form your deck.

Most of you are thinking, wow, what a great OTK card. Unfortunately our little fishy friends cannot declare an attack while they are on the field or activate their effects. But whenever The Coelocanth is targeted by ANY effect of your opponents, you can tirbutre a fishy to negate the card and destroy it. Deepsea Macronema and Golden Flying Fish both fit this requirement as well as Ocean's Keeper from TAEV. Macronema also has nifty effect of increasing al your WATER monsters by 500 when it is sent to the graveyard, and Keeper also activates it's effect to search for Cranium Fish or Thousand Eyes Jellyfish since their effects are only negated on the field.

And the big plus? You can do this as many times as you want! Just for a discard. You can also get the Sea KIng out fast with A Legendary Ocean, turning him into a level 6 monster with only one tribute. 3000 ATK monster that summons it's own army and thins the deck? Yes Please. If WATER was not playable before, it pretty much is now, with Skreech, Dragon Ice and these new fish leading the way.

David "BobDole" Hoffman Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth

And the award for the most run on name goes to.

Well, Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth (hereby named SDKC) is a monster that's fairly interesting. I'm personally not a huge water deck person, but this card does have some decent effects.

- The first effect is definately a double edged sword. Sure, mass summoning from the deck for only 1 card is always nice, but you HAVE to summon as many as possible. Which means chances are likely you're going to be pulling anywhere from 3-4 monsters from the deck straight to the field. What does this mean? Mill will rape you. Just hope you don't mill yourself out of monsters. PoA is definitely suggested in this deck.

- The second effect isn't really that bad. I mean, if this card allowed card effects, it would be simply rediculous. What I like is how it doesn't mention anything in regards to tributes.

- The third effect is most likely the whole reason you even summoned this monster in the first place. It allows you to protect him from targetting spells (Sakuretsu, Brain Con, Soul Exchange) in exchange for a fish-type monster on the field. Well you've certainly got enough fodder that's for sure. It does kind of make him invulnerble to some degree. Obviously Smashing Ground will still work, along with anything that doesn't specifically target, but he does gain you a pretty good killer for atleast a little while.

He's also a level 7 (One tribute with A Legendary Ocean out on the field), and 2800 (3000). For the cost, he can actually serve as a pretty good beatstick. I would certainly suggest water decks running this with a couple copies of Mobius. It's not like you're not going to have anything on the field to tribute.

Traditional: 2/5 Since he can atleast stall for awhile
Advanced: 3.5/5 I really kinda like him. Granted his name is it's own tounge twister.

    We finally end the week with a card that I believe most of you have underestimated greatly and I HATE it when people underestimate great cards that has potential if you use your brain carefully. This card is great in many ways and here is a list to explain the pros of this card and how you should or might use it in your future Fish Deck:
  1. Has a whopping 2800 ATK/2200 DEF which can match up with Dark Magician of Chaos' ATK.
  2. A WATER Fish-Type monster who can combo with The Legendary Ocean to become 3000 ATK Level 7 monster.
  3. It is Level 8 so you can combo it with Trade-In so long as Legendary Ocean isn't on the field. With Trade-In, you get more cards into your hand if you don't have enough tribute monsters to summon the Deepsea King. Then you can use Premature Burial or Call of the Haunted.
  4. Once per turn, you can special summon as many Level 4 or lower Fish-Type monsters as possible from your deck, but they have their effects negated while on the field and cannot attack while on field. This is where people underestimate this card, but believe me, this part is probably the best part of this monster's effect.
  5. With it's effect stated above in 4, you can special summon the new other underestimated cards Deepsea Macrotrema and Golden Flying Fish from Phantom Darkness while you have Golden Flying Fish on the field to tribute the Deepsea Macrotremas and destroy multiple cards on the field and at the same time, allowing Golden FLying Fish and the Deepsea King gain 500 ATK for each one tributed.
  6. You can use the effect stated in 4 to use the special summoned Fishes as tribute fodder for either Light and Darkness Dragon or Raiza/Mobius the Storm/Frost Monarch.
  7. You can tribute a Fish you control to negate the effect of a spell, trap, or monster effect that targets your Deepsea King.
    These are some excellent, combolicious (not a real word) ways to abuse Superancient Deepsea King Coleocanth, but if you have any other combos, deck ideas about this card, or need help in Yugioh, please feel free to contact me at pathoon@aol.com. Have a good weekend and happy dueling!
Traditonal: 1.25/5 (Fish do no good against Chaos and/or other OTKs)
Advanced: 4/5 (Really good card and should see play in a Fish deck with the combos I stated above)
Art: 3/5 (Decent picture of a King of FIsh)

Ed Friday - Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth

Today we're reviewing a card that's not DARK, but WATER and a Fish-Type, with an extremely powerful effect. This card, combined with Ultimate Offering or Double Summon, can open up OTK opportunities by tributing the Fish monsters special summoned by its effect. It's also a great effect because you can summon high-level Fish monsters and magnify their power with The Calculator. Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth can also be used with Reasoning to make its effect easier to pull off or making itself easier to get onto the field, since not too many players choose Level 7 for Reasoning's effect. However, the Fish-type theme isn't too prominent right now, and can't really reach tier 1, especially not only with this card. If this card is to see play in competitive areas, either someone has to be really innovative with deck ideas, or more Fish support needs to be released.

Traditional: 1/5 - Chaos Reigns.
Advanced: 2/5

Fish Decks: 4.5/5

Art: 3/5
Pwii ok, I finally sealed my yami have in a piece of cardboard. Oh, hi! um, todays card is a rather pointless one.
superancient deep sea colecanth is pointless bcuz the monsters summoned cant attack. the only maybe thing it could fit in is monarch, and it wouldnt even be that good there.

1/5 all.



Friday is here once more and today we have a really good card… Not really actually. It isn’t that horrid though so lets look at the bright sides:

1)      If you play a Legendary Ocean Deck this goes to 6 and only needs one tribute.

2)      You can special summon and thin your deck at the same time, which is honestly worth 1 card from your hand.

3)      Most legendary ocean decks usually go for high attack monsters, that are normal so really the part of the effect that will negate their effects’ aren’t a biggy.

4)      Fun Fun Fun

Really this is a classic example of a fun card that is on the verge of tournament worthy. What is hlding it back? Well I mean come on it is a 7 star piece of crud lol. I would run it for fun though, so yay for that!

Tradition: NO

Advance: 1.75/5   Eh
