Tips, Related Cards, Rulings

Zombie Support

Zombie World turns all monsters from the Field and Graveyard to Zombie-type. This greatly assists Paladin of the Cursed Dragon to Special Summon any monster from your opponent’s Graveyard to your side of the Field. Call of the Mummy allows you to Special Summon 1 Zombie-type monster from your hand if you do not control any other monster, so this can potentially help you fill your Field in 1 turn, by Special Summoning 1 other Zombie-type monster, Normal Summon Paladin of the Cursed Dragon, use Paladin of the Cursed Dragon to Special Summon 1 monster from your opponent’s Graveyard.


  • You can use Zombie World with Il Blud combo to take control of your opponent’s monsters such as Sacred Phoenix of Nepthys or Cyber Angel Dakini, before their effect activates. These monsters are popularly known to have effects that activate from the Graveyard.
  • Without Zombie World, you are still able to Special Summon opponent monsters like Red Eyes Zombie Dragon from their Graveyard to your field, but this does not prevent them from chaining Red Eyes Spirit trap to your monster’s effect.

REZ does the same thing but not limited to lvl 4

No, it does not. Read the effects :v. This is actually better then red eyes.

It is not better, it is just Different, REZ can summon in the battle Fase leading to OTK's if u have Z-World on the field, and can summon any levels, including boss monsters destroyed by him.
This one can summon in the main Phase, and you can chose any monster that was destroyed by battle in the previous turn, so you get to chose, and that is good, but you can't summon high level monsters.

There's some difference:
This: Special summon any time.
REZ: Only can summon in the battle step when the destroyed monster was destroyed by rez.
only a 1900 beater card. effect is too specific.

Is as specific as REZ effect, but Zombie World/Postumous Army makes it versatile, you can use it allways if u have one of those activated.
If we can get 3 dna surgery, this card could be good

Are you sure? I don't think this will work, because it don't affect the graveyard's monster, so their type should be back to the original one = no use.

The best Way to use is Postumous Army/ZombieWorld.
Damn Paladin of White Dragon Zombie version (and it's not a ritual monster!). Wonder if there's Blue eyes zombie counterpart, just like REZD

there isnt specifically a red eyes zombie paladin but this goes well with red eyes zombie, they come in a tcg starter pack for zombie world, there is a paladin of dark dragon that comes with this box tho

Blue-Eyes has Blue-Eyes Alternative Dragon, which can be special summoned from your hand, the only cost is to show to your opponent a Blue-Eyes White Dragon from your hand.

Red-Eyes or Zombies does not have anything similar to it. That's why they are different archetypes, so they have different cards.
Zombie world

For those who cannot understand what they read: This card's effect need to be activated in the your main phase. It can special summon any lvl 4 or lower zombie that was destroyed anytime by any monster.
This is why we need zombie world skill

This is wy we don't need zombie world skill :p
1900 ATK beater that goes up to 2100 with Wasteland and can bring any lv4 or lower monster from your opponent's GY as long as it was destroyed by battle (not necessarily by this card!), and people are calling it trash? wtf?

Shoulda phrased my original comment better, but 1900 ATK is nothing to scoff at either.

Do you get high off of 🔥ing other people? Or are you compensating for something?

Piece of sh1t
Maybe only useful vs rezd and even then it can only summon gozuki or samurai skull
can be use with Zombie World !?
Finally another useful zombie
