update 09/04/2017


A partner of Water monsters

Mako's Mythic Depths skill seems to be the only skill that makes Water-attribute monster (Fish, Sea Serpent, Aqua-type monster) playable in meta competitive. This skill also provides great advantage for deck containing “Levia-Dragon - Daedalus” to activate its field clearing effect, also most of the useful Water-type monster can be obtain from Age of Discovery pack.
→ Daedalus: deck recipe

Do not have to get his level up higher

The only useful card for Water-attribute monster deck that player can receive from level-up rewards is “Water Hazard” (Receive when reach level 25). However it is also possible to obtain that card from dueling him at the gate, so player do not spend too much time grinding his level.

Defeat him to farm drop skills

Most of the dueling reward cards that player could obtain from him are only useful to Water deck. The monster obtained from him are not so useful when compared to other Fish-type monster obtained from Age of Discovery pack. Still, it is not a suggestion that players should ignore dueling him, since the difficulty for beating his level 40 deck is not so hard, players could duel him to farm for the skill drop.

Description in the game

Mako Tsunami participates in many tournaments so that he can use the prize money to buy a fishing boat and sail the mighty waves. He masterfully used his Sea Deck to give Yugi and Joey some of the toughest Duels ever. His signature monster "The Legendary Fisherman" unleashes its true strength when it swims out into his "Umi" field.

When you think about it, most of the known major tournament duelists that were such before the start of the series are kind of messed up, aside from Mako. Kaiba was pretty sadistic, Keith was... destroyed by Pegasus beating him, Weevil was dishonest even before Yugi beat him, Mai was super-depressed... I guess Rex and Rebecca weren't too bad.

i have 150 tribute summons but i did not get Mako Tsunami can somebody help me?
I just realized the article still says that there's no need to level him up beyond lv25, when now you need to level him up to 38-40 if you want to play Flying Fish deck XD
okay, so apparently you needs to do 150 tribute summons, THEN level up a stage in order for mako too appear.

Make sure you do an actual Tribute Summon.

Tributing to Special Summon, like it says, counts as Special Summon, not Tribute Summon.

Tributing for Ritual Summon also counts as a Special Summon, since Ritual Summon is a type of Special Summon.
I want konami to release another top tier water deck so that mako can be back on top.
vs mako tsubami lvl20 :O

You can get every rarity from every lvl. Just that higher level mean way higher chance to obtain for example SR/UR.

I highly doubt it. And if they do, it'd probably be a single one as a level reward.
I have 151 tribute summons and guess what... No Nano. Tf?
