How to Play Water XYZ

Main Combo

Deep Sea Diva.png

1. Normal Summon Deep Sea Diva, which will allow you to Special Summon any WATER Sea Serpent from the Deck. For this combo, it is preferable to Special Summon either Atlantean Heavy Infantry or Atlantean Marksman as your WATER Sea Serpent.
2. Activate your Territory of the Sharks Skill to turn Deep Sea Diva and the WATER Sea Serpent monster you Special Summoned into level 4 monsters.
3. Xyz Summon the Rank 4 Xyz Monster Abyss Dweller by overlaying the level 4 Deep Sea Diva and WATER Sea Serpent monster.
4. Once per turn, you can detach 1 material from Abyss Dweller. Detach either Atlantean Heavy Infantry to destroy a face-up card of your opponent or Atlantean Marksman to destroy a face-down card of your opponent.

Counters for Water XYZ

Weaknesses

  • Expensive to fill out deck for new players.

It was not until during the more recent generations like 5D's and ZEXAL that WATER received the support it needs to make strong decks. UR and SR cards are plentiful as staples for WATER decks, so Duelists might need a bit of luck to get the cards needed if getting them through Card Packs.

Counters

Bottleneck any Special Summons

The support of WATER Monsters are often associated with Special Summons from everywhere-- from the Extra Deck via Synchro or Xyz Summons, from the Graveyard or even from the Deck itself. If you can stop the player from summoning at the beginning, the deck's strength is effectively nullified.

Attack before Boss Monsters appear

For the most part, low-level Monsters have decent to lower-than-average ATK and DEF, which is offset by the powerful effect monsters the Attribute has. Beatdown decks can handle WATER Decks by sheer power if they can mitigate the effects of the various WATER monsters.
