Default Mermail Abyssteus

Level 7
WATER
1700 ATK/2400 DEF
You can discard 1 other WATER monster to the Graveyard; Special Summon this card from your hand.
When you do: add 1 Level 4 or lower "Mermail" Monster from your Deck to your hand.
You can only use this effect of "Mermail Abyssteus" once per turn.

This is amazing, gets you Pike and is a tad bit more flexible than Megalo. Shame it's not a sea serpent or a bit beefier though.

Very nice addition to what is already a brilliant archetype.

A picture of the full card if anyone cares.

I like the art, reminds of that green alien from F-Zero but otherwise there is nothing really outstanding that makes this card a staple in Mermaileans. There aren't a lot of situations where you want to search a Pike or Linde, Sphere does this job better. It's only positive aspect is imo the level 7, so it's easier to make rank 7 xyz monsters.

Unless they plan on hitting Abyss-sphere in March 2013 and using this as a replacement? I think it's a little random that they've given them another searcher.

Best Exclusive of the bunch, not much else to say. Highly playable.

This guy gets it.

He conflicts with Abyssphere, though you can tutor quicker Rank 7 Plays via summoning him or Megalo by Abyssphere if you already have a Tues or Megalo on the field, and is not searchable via Dragoons. If he was Rank 6 I would most likely not attempt to run him.

I mean getting Linde or Spike to the hand is nothing special, its those beefy Big Eyes and Gaios plays that appeal to me. So I will be running 1-2 to try him out; with 3 of each Atlantean, too.

2x Abyssmegalo
2x Abysstues
2x Abysslinde
2x Abysspike
3x Atlantean Dragoons
3x Atlantean Marskman
3x Atlantean Heavy Infrantry
1x Moulinglacia
3x Deep Sea Diva
3x Genex Undine
2x Genex Controller

Might try something like that.

I think an ideal play with Abyssteus involves getting Abysspike to your hand before you Normal Summon, and then Normal Summoning Abysspike for yet another +1.

In that case, Id say three of each Atlantean is most defiantly the way to go.

Tues -> Ditch Dragoons -> Grab Spike/Meaglo, or Glacia, -> Ditch Atlantean Marks/Heavy -> Grab Undine.

I love it! Highly useable, and it makes Abyssgaios that much easier to summon.

My only question is: Will it make Abyssmegalo go down in price?

No, it will not alter the pirce of Megalo. Running Tues will not dimish the main power play card of Mermal Atlanteans at all. You will be running the same number of Megalos you ran before, even with Tues.

Megalos price will only drop when he is either reprinted or when Mermail Altanteans go the way of Blackwings.

That means when all their sh** gets limited. Somehow this card might be an indicator for heavy hits.

I play Mermail Atlanteans myself and just dread that type of punishment, in a Blackwing banlist, could do to the deck's ability.

Good card but like people said, seems like a precursor to hits on 1 of either Megalo, Sphere, or Dragoons.

There are scans from Italian cards.
Anyway, as this card is Aqua, it will never do Megalo's job. Megalo has a better interaction with other cards in the deck overall.
