  • Can be Special Summoned from your Graveyard or Hand, by tributing 2
    WATER monsters.
  • Can negate a card or monster effect that targets any WATER monster on
    your field and destroy that card, once per turn.


  • Can be costly to Tribute Summon.
  • If you Tribute Summon this monster, you cannot set “Sea Stealth Attack”
    directly from your Deck.


  • You can use Moray of Greed to shuffle Citadel Whale and another WATER
    monster to your Deck and draw 3 cards.
  • Sea Stealth Attack set via Citadel Whale’s effect cannot be flipped
    during the same turn.
  • Citadel Whale automatically destroys the monsters it attacks when Sea
    Stealth Attack is active on the field.

Field Spell

This card is essential to lower Citadel Whale’s level to level 6, and increase its ATK and DEF at the same time.


When this card is destroyed by battle or card effect, it can search for Citadel Whale from your Deck.

Special Summon

In order to have 2 WATER Tributes on the Field, you will need to fill your Field fast, and these monsters are able to do so. Hammer Shark can Special Summon another level 3 WATER monster from your hand during the same turn, Lekunga can banish 2 WATER monsters from your Graveyard to Special Summon 1 “Lekunga Token”. You can also use Big Wave Small Wave to destroy at least 1 WATER monster on your Field to Special Summon Citadel Whale.

Why its not negate the effect of order to charge?

Citadel Whale's card text says "when your opponent activates a card or effect that targets 1 WATER monster you control (and no other cards)..."
Since Order to Charge targets 2 monsters (one is your Citadel Whale and one is opponent's normal monster), you can not use Citadel's Whale effect to negate Order to Charge's.

I don't think so!
I think that the reason is, Order to Charge targets and destroys Citadel WHEN IT RESOLVES, so simply Citadel's Whale effect couldn't be chained to Order to Charge's.

Order to Charge targets normal monster you control (to be tributed), and it doesn't target the opponent's monster (the one to be destroyed).

Thanks guys
Still very relevant in the meta, damn I whaled hard back in the day when SSA was the big thing and ZERO d*mn regrets so far.

Genex controller totally claps btw.
Negates card effects, that's pretty op since it applied to spells and effect monsters as well. No surprise why people reached a high score with it at the 2nd stage of the KC CUP. (Genex controller is another great card btw)

No surprise you're a spambot trying to mindlessly allure people into thinking the game is easy and grind-free. At least, if you want to show the efficiency of a deck, back it up w/ statistics (like what duelinksmeta did on their site). As for you, you just spammed your SSA deck in KoG page with no attention to coherence whatsoever. Makes me think you are a "mindless drone" paid to do spams. >_>

"strong attack stats" no its attack so low for level 7 average.

Most Level 7's are much harder to Summon, however. I think that point's justified, just as it would be for a card like Cyber Dragon or Chaos Hunter.

Whale isn't about the atk points, its main purpose is to set up SSA.

i dont talk about effect to set up ssa, its about stats. lmao

any suggestions on my version ? :)
Some smuck
So many people forget about this cards effect nullification. Last 3 times I've used this card people try to use man-eater bug or enemy controller and quit when they realize it didn't work

I think deep inside they already know those things wont work. HAHAHA
This card can be special summoned from the grave.

Invoke a super powerful trap card

And can nullify ANY effect without any real cost, Red Eyes Slash needs a warrior equipped to nullify an effect, this whale just gets it for free without any real cost
What is this card relation with fortress whale?

similar ignition effect to red eyes slash same amount of cards (if special summoning to your hand) but has the ability to set a powerful card as opposed to special summoning a warrior type monster when its destroyed. interesting to see if it will become higher than a teir 4 deck with combos between hammer shark, the new spell that lets you raise levels of your water type monsters while being treated as umi face up and the skill beatdown

Higher then tier 4? This is going STRAIGHT to Tier 1, just wait for the weekly meta tournament to finish and ALAS the game will be flooded with these.
