Sea Monster of Theseus
I really don’t like this monster and it’s something
I’m glad to say soon won’t be nearly as powerful as
it is now. Sea Monster of Theseus is a monster that
was specifically marketed by Konami as a target to
abuse through Instant Fusion. By itself, the monster
is garbage, but with Instant Fusion, all kinds of
combos can be had, most notably an easy path to
Don’t get me wrong. In the past, I touted Instant
Fusion as a great card, and I used it extensively in
the days of froggy monarch and plant-synchro, but
with the release of Norden and Theseus, Instant
Fusion has gone from a tech play for a free summon
of a crappy monster to a sometimes godly spell card
that can turn whole tides of the duel. And Konami
markets it that way! Not a fan, and I’ve been one of
the loudest voices lately to say it has to be
As for Theseus in a bubble, it’s a terrible card.
There’s no reason to waste precious extra deck space
for this card, and this goes double for after the
Link Monster era begins, which will demand even more
precious spots. If you’re not running Instant
Fusion, there is no deck that would need this. And
once Instant Fusion is finally banned (as it should
be), this will never see play again.
Future Potential: 1/5
Hello Pojo Fans,
Sea Monster of Theseus wraps up this week.
Tuner Zombie with the ability to be brought out
with Instant Fusion? That is something we don't get
to see. Level 5 Tuner could be hand in making bigger
Synchro monsters, not to mention being compatable
with Rank 5 monsters. No Special Summoning
restrictions lets you revive this monster later on
for more Rank or Synchro plays. As a Zombie, Sea
Monster of Theseus gains the Zombie-Type support
like Book of Life and Mezuki for more Special
Summoning. Needing only 2 Tuner monsters makes this
monster very easy to Fusion Summon as well.
Any deck that runs an Instant Fusion or two could
run this in the Extra Deck. If you have a space and
this could help make it easier to Synchro Summon,
give it a try.
Until Next Time
Sea Monster of Theseus
This is such a weird card since to me, this card
looks as though it has been designed specifically
for use with Instant Fusion!
Especially since the Summoning requirement of 2x
Tuners and Polymerization (or proxy) for a 2200 ATK
monster is simply not worth the investment.
Sea Monster of Theseus really is about how you use
it and what it's Summon is going to advance you to.
The first thing to note is that this is a Level 5
Tuner, that means that it is that much easier to
Summon Ultimaya Tzolkin and means that you can
Summon it without requiring Gofu as the Tuner.
This will also come in very useful since it will
help to open up more available options when it comes
to Synchro'ing, and may in some instances make
Synchro'ing into Level 8's a little easier...
Especially when you consider the use of cards like
Speedroid Terrortop and co.
Rating: 4. What makes this card good is that
it is easily Summoned via Instant Fusion, the fact
that it is a Level 5 makes what you can Summon from
it very varied, and in some cases easier... And to
note, this card can be Summoned by yesterday's
card... Mezuki! Which really is just the cream on
the top of this cards cake tbh.
