Number 37: Hope Woven Dragon Spider Shark
2 Level 4 WATER monsters
When any player’s monster declares an attack: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; all monsters your opponent currently controls lose 1000 ATK until the end of this turn. When this card is destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 other monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it. You can only use each effect of “Number 37: Hope Woven Dragon Spider Shark” once per turn.

Can Be Found In: Premium Gold: Infinite Gold (PGL3-EN007)

Xyz Monsters are one of the easiest types of cards to play arround due their simple requeriments along all sorts of mechanics involving their attached materials. But while many Extra Decks can become quite similar by carrying the most popular choices, depending of the Deck’s theme they’ll gain some additional options exclusive for that build. A good example of this are Rank 4 monsters as the most recurrent in any Extra Deck thanks to their quick availability, but if the player focuses on a particular archetype and/or group of monsters they’ll gain additional options to Xyz Summon and obtain slightly better benefits over the most famous choices among players.

“Number 37: Hope Woven Dragon Spider Shark” is a WATER exclusive Xyz Monster capable to take full control of the board against all sorts of threats. During any battle regardless of the attacker and player’s turn, “Spider Shark” is able to spend one of its  materials to temporarily reduce the ATK of all opponent’s monsters by 1000. If “Spider Shark” is taken down by any destructive source, in return we will be able to revive any other monster in our Graveyard. So in resume, “Spider Shark” can weaken opposite fields to not only answer any disadvantageous battles but also assure easy targets to take down afterwards if possible, and even though “Spider Shark” has some openings it can still keep a strong field pressence by being replaced by one of our many other monsters in the Graveyard.

“Spider Shark” might be limited to work along WATER materials, but that doesn’t make it harder to summon than other Xyz Monsters. “Unexpected Dai” and “Rescue Rabbit” will let us start the game by summoning Normal Monsters from inside our Deck such as “7 Colored Fish” or “Giant Red Seasnake” among many others. A more extreme alternative is playing arround “Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth”, allowing us to swarm the field with Fish monsters from our Deck to summon “Spider Shark” as well Link Summon if needed. From our hand we have many chances to gather atleast two monsters together, ranging from “Tin Goldfish” ability to Special Summon another monster, to “Instant Fusion” bringing out a Fusion Monster like “Rare Fish”. Archetypes are no exception to easily summon “Spider Shark”, with Mermails and Atlanteans using their mechanics arround the Graveyard to easily swarm the field, or Gishki working along “Gishki Beast” while busy with their Ritual Summons.

Alone or with other monsters, “Spider Shark” can easily become a tough monster to take down. If the opponent tries to attack it or any other monster on our field, “Spider Shark” will respond with its effect to weaken all their creatures to not only defeat the attacker but make most of their Battle Phase null. But this ability will show its best capacity during our turn, not only making any monster able to defeat tough enemies but also assure the most destruction and damage in a single Battle Phase the more monsters affected by this Xyz’s effect. “Spider Shark” might be easily taken down like any other monster by card effects and unpredictable stat boosts, but it will follow with a revival effect to replace itself. That can go from bringing other strong monster to take on the opponent’s turn including a copy of itself (Even though not having materials to use) to a material for an immediate use during the rest of our turn.

“Number 37: Hope Woven Dragon Spider Shark” can make a strong impact on the field depending of the situation on the Duel, and that might be its biggest problem. But even though we can’t expect an opposite field full of monsters to weaken and overcome with “Spider Shark” along other monsters, its in-battle effect along a revival ability when defeated makes the Xyz Monster a very tough creature to overcome. Despite its strong pressence is a monster with clear weaknesses the opponent can easily go arround with. But “Spider Shark” still manages to cover them together with its easy Xyz Summon and ability to summon any other monster when taken down.

Personal Rating: A-

+ Able to weaken all opponent’s monsters during any battle
+ Revives a monster in our Graveyard when destroyed
+ Well supported for an immediate summon

- Efficiency depends of the opponent’s field
- Common openings and weaknesses

Sweet Dreams III by thomasconrad Diving during the day is great. But diving at night is something special. On this dive in the bahamas we had some great encounters. Even with this beautiful lemon shark. Most of us fear sharks more than mosquitos. Did you know that Mosquitos as carriers of Malaria and other Diseases kill up to 725.000 Persons each year. Crocodiles 1000. Snakes 50.000. Sharks kill 5 to 10 Persons each year.

Whether we fear sharks or not…we should preserve our oceans!
