Default With the Xyz Material ruling debroken, is Leviathan Dragon still woth using?

I'm starting to think no.

Yet I saw at Target today several Zenmaester tins and no Leviathan Dragons, implying Leviathan is selling more. I don't get it.

It's still a solid Xyz all by itself, especially in Tour Guide builds. Probably a better turn 1 move than Leviair.

Wouldn't some nice Synchro be better, though?

Its easier to summon then a Synchro monster though. It can get to 2500 attack the turn you summon him and helps set up your graveyard depending upon the deck you summon him in. Also he is a Dragon and everyone loves Dragons even if they are afraid to admit it.

Okay, yeah, I can see that being good in some decks. Not mine, though.

My deck doesn't actually always need to Synchro, either. And Xyz aren't even really much of an option. I actually need to take out Utopia now.

My main deck only uses 1 Xyz and 1 Synchro. Formula Synchron and Numbers 83: Galaxy Queen. Those are the only ones I need. Granted when the new Banlist limited Synchron it kinda hurt my draw speed but I'm trying to get over that with tech.

It should be worth noting that Zenmaister is a terrible card in most decks, what with Utopia and Roach availible. If I had the choice and didn't need Krystia, I'd go for Leviathan too.

Okay, interesting.

How about Gachi Gachi Gantetsu? It's pretty popular. How is it usually used? If I had more 2-stars, I could certainly use it in mah wonderful Naturia deck of ultimate cuteness. But... I don't.

Think of it this way: Tour Guide can still effortlessly turn herself into a 2500 ATK beatstick, which is always a great option to have.

Aside from that, there's Enemy Controller and Mind Control shenanigans to be had, making most generic Rank 3-4 Xyz Monsters like Leviathan useful.

It's still the best Rank 3 alongside Leviair.

It's good for now, until Acid Golem come out. Then Leviathan Dragon will drop in price. Acid Golem is already 3000 attack and can be Creature Swap to lock the opponent.

Leviair is better when options are available; otherwise, Leviathan Dragon is better. Beatsticks are beatsticks. You don't see anyone randomly summoning Brionac for no purpose, and Gaia Knight, the Force of Earth is still good.

I still use it but I prefer acid golem cause in two turns it will either get destroyed or win you the duel, and runs over any and almost every boss monster. Levair is also good in chaos.

Your right, a tourguid making it effectively a 2500 that slims your deck as a +1 is horrible, I invite you to show the other good rank 3, please...have you ever even played against this combo, I could give a crud about the Sangan search, it's whatever broken cards come to an end somewhat...but a 2500 for one...is good...

This thing is still a major pain as an early (turn 1 or two) drop. It was a major thorn in my side this past weekend at my local. Tour Guide into the 3* Djinn, XYZ into Leviathan, detach Djinn, drop Relinquished.....
