To close the week, we shift back to Mermail, and we
look at Mermail Abysspike. Seriously, aside from
how good they are, my only real qualm with Mermail
Monsters is the length and craziness in their names.
Abysspike is a Level 4, Water Monster, who's a
Fish, with 1600 attack (meh) and 800 defense
(equally meh). Anyway, this is one of the more
useful Mermail Monsters, he gets the ability to
discard a Water Monster to the Graveyard, when
Normal OR Special Summoned, to add a Level 3 or
lower Water Monster from your Deck to your Hand.
You can only use this effect once per turn. Abysspike
is a combo card, he adds another piece to your Hand,
to further things along, adding speed to an all
ready speedy Deck.
We end this week the same we started off, by
talking about Mermails. Mermail Abysspike is a key
card in a Mermail deck and does everything we need a
Mermail monster to do. Fist, it discards a Water
monster to the graveyard to give us our Atlantean
and some Mermail monster’s effects. Next, it allows
us to search our deck for a level 3 Water monster
for use on our next turn or as a discard for one of
our Water monsters this turn.
Unfortunately, we can not search for a level 3 and
under monster as we could get Deep Sea Diva, but
there are still some pretty awesome level 3 monsters
we could get like Atlantean Marksman, Genex Undine,
and Mermail Abyssdine, Abyssgunde, Abysshilde, and
Now for just some of the cool things that you can do
with Mermail Abysspike. Set Mermail Abysslinde. When
it is destroyed by battle, special summon Abysspike
then use its effect to discard Atlantean Dragoons to
get Abyssgunde. Get Mermail Abyssmegalo with
Dragoons, and then on your turn, summon Abyssmegalo
by discarding Abyssgunde and another Water monster.
That gives you Abyssmegalo and Abyssgunde’s effects
and we have not even summoned yet. And the hits keep
I think you get the picture. Plusses for days. If
you are playing a Mermail deck, you definitely want
to be running Mermail Abysspike.
Advanced: 4/5 (in Mermail decks)
