Hello Pojo Fans,
Windrose the Elemental Lord wraps up the Elemental Lord week.
Probably the best Elemental Lord there is with one of the lesser Attributes in the game. 5 WIND monsters exactly gets you a board wipe of opponent spell/traps. This can seriously wreck your opponents gameplan, leaving them with not much to defend them against a 2800ATK monster. Harpies are one of the best known WIND decks, and Majespecter have some good support behind them, both could potentially run this as their boss monster. Harpies though have Hunting Ground to brutalize their opponents spell/traps and Majespecter have spell/trap destruction cards specific to their archetype, but being a Winged-Beast, Windrose could gel in a Harpie deck. This isn’t a bad EL, and compared to the others it does the most potential harm to your opponent. If you need to set up your grave like this for an Elemental Lord, you need to make it worth your while. Singular targeting and 1-for-1 effects don’t do it, you want maximum damage.
Until Next Time
Harpie’s Feather Duster on legs and it’s a Wind monster. The final Elemental Lord for the week is Windrose, who has the same stats but is a Winged Beast. You get to destroy every Spell and Trap card the opponent has just for Special Summoning Windrose properly. The only downside I see for this is turn one because the opponent can’t have set anything. All in all a great effect with the potential for the most destruction, but Windrose isn’t supported enough by Wind or Winged Beast to be the lord of anything but some obscure decks. Happy Friday!
Score: 4/5 Art: 2/5 What is that?
The last Elemental Lord released until Flames of Destruction in the middle of the year, and this one is really only hurt by the attribute it supports and not what it does, unlike Pyrorex. Windrose the Elemental Lord.
Windrose is a Wind Winged Beast with the Elemental Lord stats. Type is fine, Wind is another attribute with a lack of love. Windrose needs exactly 5 Wind monsters in the GY to summon. The only Wind decks I can think of that controls the GY well enough are Ritual Beasts and Gustos, and Ritual Beasts are more worried about their banished zone over the GY, while Gustos aren’t the greatest excluding Daigusto Sphreez plays, though they are one of the better Hidden Arsenal archetypes and I like the deck. Windrose when summoned is Harpie’s Feather Duster. The effect is outstanding against heavy backrow decks, though backrow is losing favor in 2018, still doesn’t make Harpie’s Feather Duster a bad card, so in turn, this card isn’t too bad either. Probably a good side deck option for Wind decks. It is a hard once per turn for the Harpie’s Feather Duster, because blowing away the backrow once is so good, you got to do it again in the same turn, lol. I guess it means you cannot try this gain if Windrose is Striked on the effect, but then you have 6 Winds in the GY if you summoned this guy and he gets negated. Also, Elemental Lord clause. 😉 As I said, this guy is only really hurt by the attribute he supports.
