Towards the end of the OCG 2016.10 format, Zoodiac Invoked was catching up to Zoodiac.
Zoodiac Invoked was relatively untouched by the OCG 2017.01 Limit Regulation and continues strong into the new format.
Despite the limitation of Speedroid Terrortop and Fire Formation – Tenki, Zoodiac continues to perform well.
The hit to their consistency brings them down a notch to the same level as the other decks, but they are still one of the best in the new OCG 2017.01 format.
Relatively untouched by the OCG 2017.01 Limit Regulation, Infernoid gains a new support in the form of the reworked Future Fusion.
However, Imperial Order stops Infernoid in its track, and could even outright end the game when Left Arm Offering is negated.
Mono Zoodiac decks are much less prevalent, but the Zoodiac engine is still ran in almost every top performing decks.
Magician fails to find a solid footing as players are prepared with Anti-Spell Fragrance and Imperial Order in the Side Deck.
