“Shiranui” Special Feature: Synchro from the Graveyard!? Atack with Synchro Monsters by manipulating your Zombie-Type monsters that are banished or are in the Graveyard!
“Shiranui”, who first appear in “Breakers of Shadows” (which is currently on sale, and was released October 17th, 2015), are a new series of Zombie-Type monsters that fight using Synchro monsters, as well as manipulating your Zombie-Type monsters that are banished or in the Graveyard!
Their effects that trigger upon being banished or that return their allies to the Graveyard are powerful! And powerful monsters appear with strong effects, such as the ability to Synchro Summon from the Graveyard!!
Let’s check out their quirks and features here!
Introducing the “Shiranui” Monsters!
On top of “Cursed Katana Shranui” being able to be used as a Tuner for a Synchro Summon, it has an effect that sorta-kinda Synchro Summons from the Graveyard, allowing you to Special Summon a Zombie-Type Synchro Monster from the Extra Deck! Also, the three other “Shiranui” monsters have effects that activated if they’re banished as well as one other additional effect, allowing you to pull off various combos!
Cursed Katana Shiranui
[Tuner ATK800/DEF 0]
You can only use the effect of “Cursed Katana Shiranui” once per turn. ①： If this card is in your Graveyard, except the turn it was sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 non-Tuner Zombie-Type monster in your Graveyard; banish both it and this card, and if you do, Special Summon 1 Zombie-Type Synchro Monster from your Extra Deck whose Level equals the total Levels of the banished monsters.
[⇒ By using its ① effect, you can Special Summon cards like “Revived King Ha Des” that specify “Plaguespreader Zombie” as a Synchro Material! Also, the ② effect of “Ikusagami – Shiranui” (discussed later on) can return this banished card back to the Graveyard, allowing you to reuse its effect once more! ]
Swordsmith of Shiranui
[ATK 1000/DEF 0]
You can only use the ① effect of “Swordsmith of Shiranui” once per turn. ①： If this card is sent from the field to the Graveyard as a Synchro Material: You can add 1 “Shiranui” card from your Deck to your hand, except “Swordsmith of Shiranui”. ②： If this card is banished: You can activate this effect; for the rest of this turn, Zombie-Type monsters you control cannot be destroyed by battle.
[⇒ This card doesn’t just add “Shiranui” monsters from the Deck to the hand, it’s also OK to add “Shiranui” Spells or Traps! By adding “Shiranui Style: Swallow Sword” to your hand, you can use its powerful effect to help create combos while controlling your opponent’s field! ]
Chief Priest of Shiranui
[ATK 1500/DEF 0]
You can only use the ② effect of “Chief Priest of Shiranui” once per turn. ①： When this card is Normal Summoned: You can Special Summon 1 “Shiranui” monster from your hand or Graveyard, except “Chief Priest of Shiranui”, but banish it when it leaves the field. ②： If this card is banished: You can target 1 face-up card your opponent controls; destroy it.
[⇒ Not only can you use its ① effect for a Synchro Summon, but you can also use it to set up for an Xyz Summon! It’s also quite potent to use in a combo with “Shiranu Style: Swallow Sword” (discussed later on) which can banish this card from the Deck, thus allowing you to aggressively activate its ② effect! ]
Bushi of Shiranui
[ATK 1800/DEF 0]
You can only use each effect of “Bushi of Shiranui” once per turn. ①： During either player’s turn: You can banish 1 Zombie-Type monster in your Graveyard: this card gains 600 ATK until the end of this turn, and if it does, if this card battles with a monster this turn, banish that monster after damage calculation. ②： If this card is banished: You can target 1 “Shiranui” monster in your Graveyard, except “Bushi of Shiranui”; add it to your hand.
[⇒ Its ① effect can be activated during the opponent’s turn, making it an effect that restricts your opponent’s monster’s combat options! ]
Introducing the “Shiranui” Synchro Monsters!
The Level 6 “Katanagami – Shiranui” has two separate effects to dominate the monsters your opponent controls! Its ① effect can be used during your opponent’s turn, allowing you to return important cards back to the Deck, which in turn lets you set up for your next big move!
Katanagami – Shiranui
[ATK 2500/DEF 0]
1 Zombie-Type Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner Zombie-Type monsters
You can only Special Summon “Katanagami – Shiranui(s)” once per turn.
①： Once per turn, during either player’s turn: You can target 1 of your banished Zombie-Type monsters; shuffle it into the Deck, and if you do, change all monsters your opponent controls with ATK lower than or equal to that monster’s to Defense Position. ②： If this card is banished: You can target 1 monster your opponent controls; it loses 500 ATK.
The Level 8 “Ikusagami – Shiranui”, if you banish “Katanagami – Shiranui” from the Graveyard with its ① effect, can make its own ATK 5500! Its ② effect is also powerful, allowing you to prepare your combos with your “Shiranui” cards and your Zombie-Type monsters, allowing you to get ready to strike back!
Ikusagami – Shiranui
[ATK 3000/DEF 0]
1 Zombie-Type Tuner + 1 or more Zombie-Type non-Tuner monsters
You can only Special Summon “Ikusagami – Shiranui(s)” once per turn.
①： If this card is Special Summoned: You can banish 1 Zombie-Type monster from your Graveyard; this card gains ATK equal to the banished monster’s original ATK until the end of this turn. ②： If this card on the field is destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 of your banished Zombie-Type monsters with 0 DEF; return it to the Graveyard.
Introducing “Shiranui” Spell & Trap Cards!
“Shiranui Style: Reincarnation Formation” has an effect that lets you set up your combos with your “Shiranui” and Zombie-Types! It’s quite handy for preparing your counterattack, allowing to instantly wipe out your opponent’s monsters!
Shiranui Style: Reincarnation Formation
[Field Spell Card]
①： Once per turn, if you control no monsters: You can send 1 card from your hand to the Graveyard, then activate 1 of these effects.
• Target 1 Zombie-Type monster with 0 DEF in your Graveyard; Special Summon it.
• Target 1 of your banished Zombie-Type monsters with 0 DEF; return it to the Graveyard. You can only activate 1 “Shiranui Style: Reincarnation Formation” per turn.
“Shiranui Style: Swallow Sword” has a powerful effect! Since the “Shiranui” card is banished from the Deck when this card resolves, you can arrange combos according to the circumstances! If the card you banish is “Chief Priest of Shiranui”, you can create a powerful combo that wipes out 3 on the field!
Shiranui Style: Swallow Sword
[Normal Trap Card]
You can only activate 1 “Shiranui Style: Swallow Sword” per turn. ①： Tribute 1 Zombie-Type monster, then target 2 cards on the field; destroy them, then banish 1 “Shiranui” monster from your Deck.
What kind of cards will you add to your Deck?
Use 0 DEF cards like “Uni-Zombie” and “Zombie Master” that have fantastic chemistry which have powerful effects that can allow you to create combos with Zombie-Types, as well as bring them out! Also, the effect of “Cursed Katana Shiranui” can Special Summon “Archfiend Zombie-Skull“, allowing for a nearly endless combos with relevant Zombie-Type related cards!
You should try and think about other cards that should work well!
