This card gains ATK and DEF equal to the ATK and DEF of all "Zoodiac" monsters attached to it as Materials. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 Xyz Monster you control and 1 "Zoodiac" monster in your Graveyard; attach that "Zoodiac" monster to that Xyz Monster as Xyz Material.

If Zoodiac Ratpier is the engine,
Zoodiac Tigermortar is one of the
important parts. Zoodiacs as a whole
are the sum of many significant
cogs. Often, the best tier 1 decks
are like that. Each part that does
an essential function makes the
whole, and the more you have, the
better the deck. Tigermortar does
one thing really well, and that’s
attaching Ratpier to itself in order
to summon another Ratpier.
That’s really all there is to her,
though. She can, of course, target
something else in a pinch, such as a
Whiptail in order to get rid of
something bad. But the reality of
Tigermortar is that as Ratpier goes,
so does Tigermortar. Then she
becomes material for a better
monster like Drident or Broadbull.
She’s the classic enabler monster,
but she will have zero reach beyond
Future Potential: 1.5/5
Zoodiacs are crazy. One card equals XYZ monster?
That's nuts and everyone knows it. And plays it.
Tigermortar starts the craziness by requiring any
Zoodiac monster to allow for its successful XYZ
Summon. Crazy. Zoodiac material usually gives
Tigermortar bonus effects. Additionally, Tigermortar
gains Atk and Def equal to the Zoodiac Materials
attached to it. If one of them isn't giving you
anything, you can ditch it and target Tigermortar to
gain a new Zoodiac Material from the grave. I can't
even begin to expand on all the combos this card can
create in one turn. Zoodiacs were created to be the
pinnacle of abusable spamming of Extra Deck
monsters. Honestly, I'll be glad to see that aspect
go in the future. Regardless, Zoodiac Tigermortar is
a necessary component of the engine and is worthy of
a high score.
