Hello Pojo Fans,
Lyrilusc – Celestine Wagtail is your Spell/Trap searcher for the archetype.
As mentioned above, Celestine Wagtail is the Lyrilusc Spell/Trap searcher. Once Special Summoned you get to search out an archetype-specific Spell/Trap from the deck. As for how it benefits your Xyz monsters, Celestine Wagtail can attach itself to any Lyrilusc Xyz, so you can continuously keep attaching and detaching them and not lose advantage. In terms of what you will be searching it will depend on your situation. Bird Strike will act as a blanket negation for opponent’s monsters, while Bird Call will likely be your #1 choice. Phantom Feathers being the only trap is more of a setup card to use for next turn, the most direct path to offense is Bird Call. Of all the Lyrilusc monsters, Celestine Wagtail is the only one that reattaches itself to an archetype Xyz monster, making them very valuable to triggering effects.
Lyrilusc are meant to swarm the field and throw out multiple Xyz monsters or one really big one. When you do that, you will still activate effect(s) unless going for an OTK. When you activate those effect(s), you want to have Celestine Wagtail attached.
Until Next Time
From one little bird to another we now look at Lyrilusc – Celestine Wagtail.
Celestine Wagtail is a Level 1 WIND Winged Beast with 200 ATK and 0 DEF. This card being Special Summoned via any means nets you a search for any Lyrilusc Spell or Trap. It’s simple enough and easy to trigger with the effects of cards like Sapphire Swallow, Turqouise Warbler, or Beryl Canary and you do have a few options for this. A draw power option each turn is there in Bird Sanctuary, we got a Dark Ruler No More like card with Bird Strike, you can disrupt the opponent by making all their monsters Level 1 with Phantom Feathers, and tomorrow we’ll see their consistency card. Second effect lets you attach this from grave to a Lyrilusc Xyz you control, which is good to get more materials on them to keep using their effects and to give them more ATK considering all but 1 bases their ATK on the number of materials, and the lone exception boosts on summon per material. Anyways, double hard once per turn on these effects as standard. Celestine Wagtail overall is pretty decent. It searches a variety of options for your Spells and Traps and it gives your Xyzs more materials. It’s easy to resolve as well, with your birds or with One-for-One. Another decent bird.
Advanced Rating: 3.75/5

Next up in the Lyrilusc line is Celestine Wagtail. The flavor and stats are the same as yesterday, just the attack/defense swap here at 200/0 respectively. Today, a Special Summon nets you any Theme Magic/Trap from your Deck to your Hand. This is very common to find Effect wise in Themes anymore, and a free card of a Summon, namely a Special one, is always a friend to a player. There are a handful of options there (one would assume this card pool will continue to grow, but time will tell). This card can also attach itself to a Theme XYZ Monster if it resides in your Graveyard. More XYZ Material is (nearly) always a good thing. Both Effects here are once per Turn. This card, while not quite as good as yesterday, still does a couple of necessary and decent things here for you in the Deck. I stand by that yesterday could be used in threes; this probably is good enough in a pair, or even just the single copy.
Art: 4.5/5 This bird is much cuter than yesterday. I’m not sure why, I think I just really enjoy the face here more.
Next up is the other new main deck Lyrilusc monster, Lyrilusc Celestine Wagtail. Just like the other Lyriluscs, it’s a level 1 WIND winged beast, this time with 200 attack and 0 defense. As the main deck monsters exist solely to facilitate rank 1 XYZ summons, this is largely irrelevant unless you’re forced to pass turn early.
Both effects are hard once per turn and are pretty straightforward. If you special summon Celestine Wagtail, whether through the other Lyriluscs or otherwise, you can search a Lyrilusc spell or trap. Currently, the pool for that is very small, and one of them will be covered tomorrow. You can search Lyrilusc Bird Sanctuary to help Lyrilusc Assembled Nightingale get an OTK, or search Lyrilusc Birds of a Feather to…maybe prevent your Lyriluscs from being destroyed by battle? It’s not particularly good, so you’re most likely searching for tomorrow’s spell, which is a great extender. Furthermore, if Celestine Wagtail is in the graveyard while you control a Lyrilusc XYZ monster, you can attach it as an XYZ material. Not much to say about this effect other than giving Assembled Nightingale a power boost or giving more XYZ fodder to the card we’ll cover on Friday. Not as impactful as Beryl Canary, but still a solid card for Lyriluscs, though you’ll likely skip it in hybrid builds.
Art: 4/5 Ditto with Beryl Canary.
