White Aura Whale
White Aura Whale is a fantastic monster and might
just be the best Fish type in the game. With four
distinct and useful effects, how can you possibly go
wrong? If Kaijus didn’t exist, I would probably
guess an entire deck could be developed around White
Aura Whale and be extremely difficult to deal with.
But that can be said about a lot of monsters. The
point is White Aura Whale is an instant staple in
water decks that run any kind of tuner. From Mermail/Abyss
decks to Crystron to pure Fish, there’s no reason
not to run this bad boy, and usually it should be
your main focus. Mermail/Abyss decks have always
been on the cusp of tier 1, and White Aura Whale
gives it an uppercut to the face to add to its
repertoire. With a slew of tuner options in Sea
Monster of Theseus, Fishborg Launcher, and Deep Sea
Diva, there are a ton of ways to summon him. Unless
you really need Brionac or some other option in a
pinch, White Aura Whale should now be the focus,
especially post-link. He’s that good.
And that’s not mentioning his future potential,
which is off the charts. He’s so generic and yet so
solid. He deals with threats in an instant and none
of his four effects are once per turn. Use them over
and over if you’re able to. He can win you an entire
duel in a single turn without breaking a sweat.
White Aura Whale is one of the best synchro monsters
ever released, easily in the same class as beasts
like Crystal Wing, Brionac and Trishula. If you run
waters, you need to try and summon White Aura Whale.
That’s all there is to it.
Future Potential: 5/5
Lots of strengths going for it. Great
stats. Free Lightning Vortex. Two
attacks (like a BLS Envoy). Game finishing.
And there's piercing too. If that's not
enough, it can also summon itself again just for a
banish. And it's a tuner (so you can use it to
make something even bigger). And it's LV8; a
popular level for Synchroing. This is
significant support for WATER monsters. It has
a variety of effects, all of them good. If
it's not a game finisher, it's still a powerhouse
that can cut through a setup and get a plus.
Moreover, you don't even need 2 WATER monsters.
You could theoretically use this in a whole deck
full of FIRE non-Tuners monsters and 1 WATER Tuner.
5/5 (I'm lenient because of the Ex Minion of
Darkness Rule ; Extra Deck cards don't have the draw
probability issues of main deck cards ; and this is
a staple for all decks that can make it.
Hello Pojo Fans,
Today we are Captain Ahab and going after today's
card: White Aura Whale.
WATER-specific Synchro for WATER-based decks like
Mermails and perhaps Nekroz. Making eight for
a Synchro Summon isn't hard. Raigeki-effect upon
Synchro Summon for any Attack Position monsters your
opponent controls can potentially wipe the board.
Piercing damage added to this cards arsenal of
weapons ensures when your opponent is on the
defensive they will still take damage. Turning a
Level 8 into a Tuner may not be handy, but
resurrecting for the price of one banished WATER
monster is very handy. Fishborg Launcher and Deep
Sea Diva are the main Tuners to use for this
monster. With the new Sea Monster of Theseus, you
have access to a Level 5 Tuner and can then use a
Level 3 WATER (6 Mermails are Level 3, and 3
Until Next Time
It's always nice to get new Synchro monsters, and we
got a pretty good non-generic Synchro here in White
White Aura Whale is a Level 8 Synchro requiring 1
WATER Tuner and 1+ WATER non-Tuner, which shouldn't
be hard to come across in WATER decks that can
Synchro Summon. When Whale is Synchro Summoned, you
can destroy all Attack Position monsters your
opponent controls. Potentially destroying a boss
monster your opponent has is very nice, as getting
rid of a big threat like that almost guarantees you
a win. During the Battle Phase, Whale can attack two
monsters, which is great for clearing a board and
going for game. This effect gets better because
Whale does piercing damage, which will never be bad.
If Whale is destroyed and sent to the GY by an
opponents card, you can revive Whale by just
banishing a WATER monster and Whale comes back as a
Tuner. Don't think the Tuner part is too relevant,
but the ability to revive yourself is great.
If you are playing a WATER deck that can Synchro
Summon, this Whale is for you.
Advanced Rating: 4/5
