Hello Pojo Fans,
Wing Requital is one heck of a card for Harpies and Blackwings…and other Winged Beast decks.
Normal Spell draw support as long as you only have Winged Beast monsters on the field, and at least two with different original names. These, even in Harpie decks are terms you can come to. 600LP is nothing to pay when you are drawing two cards. Once per turn limit is standard. Wow, simple, easy draw support for a Type of monster, it’s like Allure of Darkness for Winged Beasts only you can shotgun this without threat of losing your whole hand. Sure, you can’t use this with a clear field, but the lack of draw support for Winged Beasts is stark Blackwings have Whirlwind, but Cards for Black Feathers was a disaster for supporting that archetype. Harpies…they don’t have a legit draw card like this. While Raidraptors may not need this as they already have Allure, the lack of banishing combined with their ability to splash the field make this card a good fit.
What else can you say other than: Why did it take this long to make this card?
Until Next Time
On today’s episode of “Pot of Greed” we have Wing Requital.
Wing Requital is a Normal Spell that can only be activated if the only monsters you control are Winged Beasts and you control at least 2 monsters with different names, you then pay 600 LP to draw 2 cards. So it’s an easy Pot of Greed for anything Winged Beast related just as long as you can spam the board. Floowandereeze could facilitate this if they don’t end up tributing all their monsters to Tribute Summon. Lyrilusc got some support recently and are all Winged Beasts, so you can use this to draw 2 before you Xyz Summon, especially if you want to summon something that isn’t a Winged Beast. The first archetype that came to mind initially was Blackwings, and we know how many free Special Summons that archetype has to the point where this is easy to use. This is a really good card that’s generic for a Type, even with a HOPT clause. It might be winmore in some Winged Beast Decks that don’t have consistency issues, but others would love to use this more than likely.
Advanced Rating: 4.25/5
Art: 4/5 There goes the Sacred Crane.
I’ve mentioned before, any card that says ‘Draw’ in its text is going to get some attention. The more cards you can Draw (2 in this case) the more attention said card will get. Wing Requital is a very simple Normal Magic with a fun spin on the Draw mechanic. Here, you have to only control Winged-Beast cards (and Winged-Beasts NEED support) and 2 of those Monsters have to have different original names. No absurd cost or requirement there. Then, for the small cost of 600 Lifepoints, you Draw 2 cards. You can only use one of these a Turn, but this is an absolute 3 of in a Winged-Beast Deck. Yes, it might be a time you don’t have the two Monsters, or you’re at less than 600 Lifepoints, but those are small, rare instances.
Art: 5/5 This is VERY pretty
Perhaps one of the more polarizing cards on reveal in 2021, Wing Requital is a normal spell with a simple effect. If you control only winged beast monsters, and among them at least 2 have different names, you can pay a negligible 600 LP to draw 2 cards, on an obligatory hard once per turn. Many winged beast decks can easily spit out 2 or more monsters with different names– Floowandereeze, Lyrilusc, Raidraptor, Harpie, and Blackwing all can resolve this card very easily. Before we cower in fear of “Bird of Greed”, though, remember that drawing is most impactful BEFORE you start you combos to access your starters, and swarm-type decks like many of the mentioned archetypes usually skimp out on hand traps and tech cards that would make drawing post-combo worth it. Still, Wing Requital isn’t a bad card by any means and has seen some success in tournament play, just to amass more advantage. It’s a relatively risky card in my opinion, but there are certainly worse options out there, and you can’t really go wrong with slotting it into almost any winged beast deck.
Art: 3.5/5 Sacred Crane in the background is a nice touch, being a winged beast card related to drawing.
