This video explores Zatanna's many ways to reset you. Is it as much for Zatanna players as it is for those who play against them and have no clue how to block. I don't take credit for discovering these resets although most of the combos shown are my own. Notation is shown beneath the video. Hope you guys enjoy :).

I like that you included Deg's early setup from a combo ending in levi cancel j2. It's a really legit setup that often goes overlooked.

Also, for anyone who is unaware, the smoke and mirrors setup requires the d1 to be performed BEFORE the smoke and mirrors special. If it is performed after, you can see which clone they are by simply looking at the hand of the front clone; if you see the glitter effect from Zatanna's d1 then they are at the front and will cross you up, and if you don't see it then they are in the middle and will not cross you up.

Yup, also, if you do it after, the camera adjusts to follow whichever clone it is.

I just got into the habit of doing it before.


Also, the double j2 deg setup is hella legit. I try and use it when possible because it always screws with people's minds.
