Zoodiac

 
Mono Zoodiac is the main predominant build – Kaiju Zoodiac continues on a decline and Master Peace Zoodiac is gone.

Players continue to test out various different Level 6 Synchro Monster as a tech card against Flying “C”. After Coral Dragon and Stardust Charge Warrior, the flavor of the week is Goyo Predator.

 

True Draco

 
With mono Zoodiac on the rise and Kaiju Zoodiac on the decline, in a quintessential rock-paper-scissors fashion, Zoodiac True Draco makes a comeback.

Yabaiyo (やばいよ) had a spectacular run this weekend, going 8-0 at the 8th Mitsui CS, and then 7-0 at the 9th Mitsui CS.

The deck he played at the 8th Mitsui CS is shown below. At the 9th Mitsui CS, he made a minor change of cutting 1 Dinomite Knuckle, the True Dracofighter to add 1 more Pot of Desires.

 

Conclusion

It might have been too early to count out Zoodiac True Draco yet. They are making a strong last-ditch effort in the last stretch of the OCG 2017.01 format.

However, I don’t really see Zoodiac being dethroned anytime in OCG 2017.01.
