Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Hope you got to enjoy the Solar Eclipse, if not, there's another one in 7 years. Anyways, today's CoTD is the handy hand trap-like monster, Zoodiac Whiptail.
 
Whiptail has decent ATK, the support of Zoodiac and EARTH-based support behind it (Giant Rat search target), as well as Beast-Warrior support like Horn of The Phantom Beast. As a Hand Trap, Whiptail attaches to a Beast-Warrior Xyz as a material and empowers that monster with a banish after defeat in battle.
 
Banishing most monsters destroyed in battle is a good effect. It gets rid of resources and keeps the graveyard from gaining monsters. Flexible to work with any Beast-Warrior Xyz, Whiptail can be played in Bujin, Zoodiac, and Fire Fists. Whenever a monster can be played in three different archetypes without interrupting their strategy, the card is good. In Zoodiac it will also lend its ATK to the Zoodiac Xyz, in the other mentioned archetypes it will add another material and the ability to banish, both handy.
 
Advanced-3.5/5
Art-3/5
 
Until Next Time,

So six months ago Zoodiac Whiptail got the review treatment to the tune of 3.75 out of 5. Still worthy. The combo of this and the rat makes it a very simple engine to run while the ban list keeps looming but not doing anything. Zoodiac Whiptail is a Level 4 Earth Beast-Warrior type monster with 1200 Atk and 400 Def. Any Beast-Warrior type XYZ Monster with this as material gets to banish monsters it battles whether it destroys them or not. Its first effect allows it to attach itself as material to your targeted Beast-Warrior type monster during either player's turn from the hand or the field. This would grant the banishing effect and act like a banishing Honest without the attack boost for Beast-Warrior XYZ monsters. As a monster with low stats, Zoodiac Whiptail is ok, but as a searchable Zoodiac with a good effect, it certainly jumps up in score. 
 
Score: 4/5

Zoodiac Whiptail:
 
Welcome back to another week, we took a break on Monday for viewing the Solar Eclipse, but we have returned! This week, we will be looking at some OTS Pack 5 reprints that we have never reviewed. The first one is part of everyone's favorite deck, Zoodiac, and is a staple in the deck besides Ratpier, the second best Zoodiac monster is Zoodiac Whiptail.
 
Whiptail allows you to target a Beast-Warrior XYZ Monster you control and attach this card from your hand or field to that XYZ Monster as material. To be able to get more XYZ Materials on powerful XYZ Monsters like Zoodiac Drident and Zoodiac Broadbull is outstanding, plus those Zoodiac XYZs and the others will gain 1200 ATK thanks to Whiptail being under it. Not only that, but when a XYZ Monster with an original type of Beast-Warrior battles, the monster it battled is banished after the damage calculation. Cause Zoodiac wasn't broken enough, we had to be able to out floaters as well. Banished cards can be hard to get back for most decks, as well as the fact that most decks rely on the GY, yeah you should play three of this in Zoodiac decks.
 
Advanced Rating: 4/5

Welcome back everyone. After yesterday's hiatus so everyone could enjoy the eclipse, we're taking a look at some OTS5 cards and we're starting things off with Zoodiac Whiptail.
 
Whiptail is a level 4 earth beast-warrior, with 1200 attack and 0 defence. He enjoys the standard benefits of being beast-warrior and also part of the Zoodiac archetype. Recently, Whiptail has become a more staple card of the Zoodiac engine in many of its hybrids due to the effects it grants a Beast-Warrior Xyz.
 
Whiptail has a simple effect, during either players turn, you can attach him to any Xyz who is originally a Beast-Warrior, from either your hand or your field. Then if that monster battles another monster, you can banish the opponent's monster after damage calculation.
 
The sneaky thing, is that as a Zoodiac monster, you can equip it to a Zoodiac Xyz during the damage step, as it would give that Xyz an attack boost.
 
Advanced 3/5 It's become more used and versatile, finding its way into the Zoodiac "engine" that many decks are utilising now.

We took yesterday off, as we were blinded by the eclipse, which I hope you got to see, wherever you are.  But the week now opens with Zoodiac Whiptail.  On his own, this card isn't that impressive, being a Level 4 with only 1200 attack.  But it's effect more or less makes it a Union Monster.  As a Quick Effect, you can add this card as XYZ Material from your Hand or while on the Field, to an XYZ Monster of the Beast-Warrior type, by targeting that Monster.  Said Monster then gains the effect of removing from play a Monster it is involved in Battle with.  After Damage Calculation, that is.  I do like that you still get to apply Damage before the removal, but this card overall is just meh.  It would definitely score higher if it did more, or anything, on it's own.
