At the end of the Damage Step, if this card attacked: Destroy the monster this card attacked. You must control a face-up "Six Samurai" monster with a different name to activate and to resolve this effect. If this card would be destroyed, you can destroy another face-up "Six Samurai" monster you control instead.
These are cards from the same box that helps keep your Six Samurai monsters alive. If you have multiple monsters in your graveyard, you can choose which one to summon using Powerful Rebirth. This gives you more option during certain situation to make more plays. Legendary Ebon Steed protects your monster from getting destroyed.
All of the Six Samurai monsters are warrior-type monsters, so using The A. Forces will help boost their attack, which can be devastating if you can swarm the field. Swiftstrike Armor can be a little slow, but it can potentially let you get an extra summon during your turns, allowing you to get 2 monsters out on the field. It can also be used with Reload since all of the monsters you get after using Reload can be special summoned with Swifstrike Armor.
not really, i managed to pull the effect with zanji and another six samurai, obviously zanji will be destroyed if attacking a higher atk monster but still that monster is destroyed after that BUT mind you, you must control another six sam with a difeerent name AFTER zanji is destroyed too so you cant save zanji by destroying another sam you control
The best way to use Zanji's effect is to have another face up six samurai monster on the field. One of those monsters should be equipped with Ebon Steed. Using Zanji, if you attack a monster with a higher ATK than Zanji, destroy the monster equipped with Ebon Steed to resolve Zanji's effect and keep two monsters on the field in the aftermath.
