Hello, everyone

Back again with me, Kusari Hanzai

Finally I have free time to share my deck with all of you

Just like yesterday I use OCG card and TCG ban list

I hope you all like it

Thank you, and let's go



Do you know about the Zoodiac? but the Zoodiac I will discuss is not the Zoodiac that is in the sky, but the Zoodiac in Yu-Gi-Oh!

Zoodiac known as twelve beasts is an archetype of earth beast-warrior monsters with level 4

One of the most popular archetypes in Yu-Gi-Oh!

Zoodiac has the extraordinary ability to make XYZ summon using one monster card

Anyways, let's just jump to the deck list



3x Nibiru, The Primal Being

The greatest meteor that can destroy everything, very useful for dealing with decks that rely on complex combos like Virtual World, Dragon Link, Drytron and several other rogue deck

2x Artifact Lancea

Stop opponent banish card

2x Skull Meister

Love him more often, he deserves it. Why? Listen carefully. He can stop the activation of Eldlich trap card in graveyard

2x Ghost Belle & Haunted Mansion

Sometimes, quite useful for blocking enemy combo. So here 2 copy of her should be enough, since we have Skull Meister in deck

3x Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring

As usual the competitive deck has a hand trap to support its performance, and here comes 3 copy of Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring

3x Droll & Lock Bird

This level 1 spellcaster that looks like a beast is very useful in dealing with meta decks that are hot right now, he stop opponent to add more card from deck

1x Zoodiac Raptier

Normal summon and send 1 Zoodiac card to graveyard, also can special summon other Zoodiac monster. Amazing

3x Zoodiac Thoroughblade

He has the highest attack and piercing effect. He also gave us free draw by discard 1 Zoodiac card

3x Zoodiac Ramram

The strongest defense of Zoodiac with 2000 DEF and provide protection against trap card

3x Zoodiac Whiptail

Free banish monster by battle, no more no less also can attach from hand to XYZ Zoodiac monster.

And and that's it the front line monster on this deck. 10 monsters from Zoodiac archetype. Trust me

10 is more than enough. We have a very high chance to open a hand with 1 Zoodiac monster.


1x Pot of Avarice

Very useful for recycling XYZ monster, Zoodiac monster, hand trap also draw 2 card

3x Pot of Desire

It takes a lot of determination to use this card. Banish 10 card and draw 2 cards. if you have desire to win, don't think just use this card

1x Monster Reborn

Special summon monster from either graveyard. Good for recovery

3x Lightning Storm

Best removal

1x Zoodiac Barrage

Zoodiac searcher

3x Fire Formation - Tenki

Useful for searching Zoodiac monster

3x Forbidden Droplet

Use it well, especially when facing Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon



1x Infinitrack Fortress Megaclops

Only for emergencies

3x Zoodiac Tigermortar

Cute tiger, use her effect to attach more Zoodiac monster to XYZ Zoodiac

2x Zoodiac Chakanine

Special summon other Zoodiac monster from graveyard

2x Zoodiac Hammerkong

1x Zoodiac Drident

Quick effect, once per turn detach one material and destroy 1 face-up card.

3x Zoodiac Boarbow

Attack opponent directly, and XYZ summon Divine Arsenal AA-ZEUS - Sky Thunder with countless material

3x Divine Arsenal AA-ZEUS - Sky Thunder

Expensive boss



2x Gadarla, The Mystery Dust Kaiju

Kaiju monsters to avoid the Tri-Brigade lockdown

1x Artifact Lancea

If two is not enough we have three, perfect for the current meta situation

2x D.D. Crow

This card is very helpful against deck that often use graveyard like Eldlich

2x Three Tactical Talent

Amazing card with 3 effect

1x Harpie’s Feather Duster

Amazing removal for spell and trap

2x Cosmic Cyclone

Pay 1000 LP feel’s good

3x Evenly Matched

Great removal for some specific situation

1x Macro Cosmos

Any card send to graveyard is banished instead. Amazing

1x Imperial Order

Burn 700 LP each turn to negate all spell effect on field, guess i'll die


Strategy in 1st turn

  1. XYZ summon Zoodiac Drident, strong 6/10, well this is all we can do at the first turn


Strategy in 2nd turn

  1. XYZ summon Boarbow, directly attack and XYZ summon Divine Arsenal AA-ZEUS - Sky Thunder with a lot of Zoodiac XYZ monster, the best 8/10, if this doesn't work then nothing will be able to help


Deck Statistics

Attack : 8/10

Defence : 6/10

Consistency : 7/10

Recovery : 7/10

Overall : 7/10

    Side out Lightning Storm, Side out Solemn, play all your handtraps at 3, play 3 Desires, play either Skull Meister or Ghost Belle (don’t play both)

    Another competitive and balance deck. 13 hand trap, now this is an avangers level threat… because from the start this is pure Zoodiac It’s natural to have a lot of empty space which can be filled with a lot of hand trap. Keep playing droplet is a wise decision, since we can use fire formation on field to trigger droplet effect, also still the best to counter Dragoon. 3 Zeus, that’s a surprise, normally people expect Zoodiac only have 2 Zeus. Macro cosmos in side, well OCG Zoodiac use that in two copy, very reasonable. Good job.

    2 Skull 2 Belle is balance since we never know what deck is your opponent have. Lightning storm on main deck i’m support that since zeus will wipe out everything and if zeus just got destroyed lightning storm can be used.

    For 3 desire is optional, since its gonna be stupid if you use desire and draw desire.

    If you draw desire play carefully, if you draw avarice play aggressively.

    This is nice but I personally prefer to play zoo eldlich

    Maybe try dimension shifter in this?? Zoo does not care about the grave and some topping ocg decklists have been playing that card

    Well the idea of shifter is not bad, kinda agree. Since it’s truth that Zoodiac doesn’t care about graveyard unless you wanna trigger every effect of Zoodiac XYZ. Since it’s up to player for hand trap which are suitable for their local. But for me side deck for PSY-Frame is better since OCG always have that. #Colossus to 1 #Free Colossus

    Nice deck list, don’t worry this is really good for only zoodiac deck, some local deck have similarity with this one.

    I prefer zoodiac tri-brigade. Since they both beast and can be searched using fire formation. Once tri-brigade resolve combo and fill graveyard i can use desire without worry, also I have zoodiac that can go to zeus when I needed. Of course, this deck is quite slow because the tri-brigade effect makes me send the cards back to the deck. Mystic mine 3 copy and terraforming in side, talent in main since if opponent ash everything talent can draw more card. I use dark ruler instead of droplet since I have 4 link bird that can banish dragoon and zeus. Much trap than hand trap like solemn, summon limit, torrential and trap trick plus waking in side. 1st turn lock with simorgh, set some trap, 2nd turn just go to zeus at any cost. done.

    No it isn’t, you play all your handtraps at 3 since you want to see them. Lightning Storm should be sided because of how unreliable and bricky it can be.

    You also need to play 3 Desires for consistency.

    1. you forget we’re in a control format with high impact traps and relying on your side deck to win half of the time is bad practice in most cases, 2. there’s a difference between formats when it comes to the tcg and ocg where they run 2 handtraps or in most cases people want to balance it, it’s a similar mindset and practice when it comes to people also running 2 avarice and 2 extrav to boos the consistency of a deck, 3. S/T removal isn’t brick, i’m sorry but this mindset is kinda just getting stupid and garbage where people are saying shit is bricky just based on their own principle, i’ve mained s/t removal because of the shift in format and me not wanting to rely on my side deck in case of a unexpected matchup, you could argue it’s the same thing with people saying handtraps are bricks since they’d clog your hand and you wouldn’t see your combo pieces

    i have experience this sort of thing dueling and watching my friends explain their deckbuilding theory and adapted it into my own, it’s planning ahead for the shift in a format and adapting your own playstyle so it’s fun for you and it can work out, just because it’s different from the norm doesn’t exactly mean it can’t work out

    keep in mind again this is an ocg deck were their deck philosphy differs so we need to respect that and understand why they do it, it’s the equivalent of respecting and abiding to the culture of foreigners in a foreign country

    I’ve noticed OCG players play less cards at 3, I wonder why
