Yazi, Evil of the Yang Zing
Yang Zings never took off.
They were always just a weaker version of
Maybe Yazi can change things a bit, but Yang
Zings still have a way to go.
Yang Zings had floaters but lacked power.
Yazi packs lots of it with 2600 ATK.
Can't be targeted by opponent's effects.
This effectively makes it immune to a lot of
things, though Exciton, Raigeki, etc. Is still fair
Thankfully, if it ends up being destroyed, it
replaces itself, which helps.
But all Yang Zings do that, and this hasn't
helped the deck too much.
It's removal effect is kinda weak, like a Scrap
You can break even on your own card being destroyed
but its still a little situational.
Virgil's removal effect is much superior.
Criticisms aside, for Yang Zing standards, this card
is really good.
I still have my doubts about Yang Zing rising
up some tiers.
Traditional – 2
Advanced – 3.5
|Yazi, Wickedness of the Yang Zing
A new generic level 7 synchro monster. This monster
allows you to take advantage of your floating
monsters and destroy an opponents monster. Also when
he is destroyed he floats as well. I'm not a fan of
this card outside of Yang Zings but I look forward
to this card impacting future Yang Zing decks!
Hello Pojo Fans,
Wyrms get another Xyz in the new set with Yazi, Evil
of the Yang Zing. Good stats for a level 7 Synchro,
Yazi has the added benefit of not being able to be
targeted by opponent card effects. Two effects that
can be activated once per turn each gives this card
flexibility. Yazi has an archetype Scrap Dragon
effect as its first effect. Select a “Yang Zing”
monster along with a card your opponent controls and
destroy both. This effect is going to end up always
as a +1, as all “Yang Zing” monsters have the option
to Special Summon another “Yang Zing” monster
(except a copy of the one you destroyed) from your
deck upon destruction. Use this effect to clear a
monster or card off the field while at the same time
setting up an Xyz or Synchro summon by cycling out
one Yang Zing for another.
If Yazi is destroyed while you control it and sent
to the graveyard, you gain the standard ability of
all other “Yang Zing” monsters and can Special
Summon another “Yang Zing” monster from your deck in
face-up defense position. A 1-for-1 upon destruction
is always good. As with swapping out one “Yang Zing”
with another with Yazi's first effect, this effect
can set up future Synchro and Xyz plays during
either turn depending on which Yang Zing's are
present on your side of the field.
Yang Zings needed a monster that could kill cards
your opponent controls, and now they have it in the
form of a Synchro monster. With several different
level Yang Zings to choose from, and two Tuner
monsters to choose from, Yazi shouldn't be hard to
make or plus off of.
Until Next Time
Yazi, Wickedness of the Yang Zing
For today's card, we have, possibly, one of the
greatest level 7 Synchro Monsters ever made. For a
brief description of it, think Diamond Dire Wolf and
Leo, Keeper of the Sacred Tree combined.
Standing at level 7, with 2600 attack, it is one of
the beefier level 7 Synchro Monsters. Being generic,
it is not simply restricted to use in Yang Zings,
but any deck that can possibly summon a level 7
monster(Shaddolls come to mind, but are obviously
not the only deck). Dark allows for some neat
things, such as more compatibility with Shaddolls
for fusions, but it's type will usually be
As for its effect, it is, to say the least, amazing.
At best, it is a non-targetable powerhouse with no
Main Phase 2 weakness, unlike some other giant lion.
At worst, it is a Diamond Dire Wolf, able to pop
itself(or another Yang Zing) to destroy a card your
opponent controls. It's last effect is only usable
in Yang Zings, but it is still better off in other
decks. Still, being a floater on top of all of this
makes it a big threat if your opponent can get it
What might you summon this against? The deck that
this hurts the most is most definitely Burning
Abyss. With 2600 attack getting over everything in
the deck except some Astral Force targets(which is
losing play fast), Acid Golem(which can be a death
sentence to them), and Black Luster Solder:Envoy of
the Beginning, this card can spell doom for the
Burning Abyss player. It also says "No" to all of
their valuable backrow, such as Phoenix Wing Wind
Blast and Karma Cut. It is better at doing this than
Leo was, in that you can't just Wind Blast this in
your Main Phase 2.
Overall, a fantastic addition to the level 7 synchro
pool. But this still doesn't make Yang Zings much
