Spiritual Wind Art – Miyabi

Bet you didn’t see this one coming.

Today’s card is Spiritual Wind Art – Miyabi, which forces you to tribute a – you guessed it – WIND monster! Then you take a card on your opponent’s side of the field and put it at the bottom of his deck.

Meh. You can use this to get rid of cards you don’t want to see again for the rest of the duel, such as BLS-EotB or Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys, I suppose. You could use it on recently set cards if you’re that afraid of them. But tributing a monster (and I really can’t think of any WIND monsters you’d particularly want to tribute), along with using this Trap, to get rid of one card usually just won’t be worth it.

I daresay this is the worst of the Spiritual Arts. That’s not to say it doesn’t have uses, of course. WIND Decks can be fairly strong, and I’m sure this would make a decent addition to them.

CCGCC: 1.5/5
WIND Deck: 3.5/5

Spiritual Wind Art - Miyabi

Different effect, not so different style of play.

Again, it's either a 2 for 1+ or a 2 for 2+.

You either give up your Wind monster (a DEF position Spear Dragon or a Slate Warrior, perhaps?) and your Trap card for 1 opponent's card + them not seeing it again for the rest of the Duel, most likely...or you get them to waste a card in the process.

It's a nice little trick for a Wind deck but not really something I'd concentrate too much on.

Traditional: 1.25/5
Advanced: 2.75/5

Coin Flip
Now we come to the ultimate Arts and the penultimate card for the week, Wind. Wind is like bounce except far better. However, there is single problem here, and that is the complete lack of useful WINDs to use. What are you going to summon, Bladefly? Here. Here's a list of all the WIND monsters in the game with an effect.

4-Starred Ladybug of Doom

If you can build a deck with any of the aforementioned cards in it and want some high-power bounce (Literally. This is uber-bounce. This isn't just send back to deck, it's You-Might-Not-See-It-For-The-Rest-Of-The-Game bounce.), then try it out. If not... Well, the lack of good bait monsters to tribute for it is uncool. WATER had Serpent. EARTH has Scapegoat. This has... Twin-Headed Behemoth?

Yeah. GG.

2.3/5 WIND/High WIND monster deck
1.1/5 General
Snapper Spiritual Wind Art - Miyabi

Today's card is the final installment of the Spiritual Arts, Spiritual Wind Art - Miyabi.

At the cost of Tributing a WIND monster on your side of the field, Miyabi allows you to put a card on the opponent's side of the field at the bottom of the owner's Deck. Yeah… so… it's bounceage. Whopee. But wait; there's more! It's an almost identical variant of bounceage as that which Abyss Soldier and Phoenix Wing Wind Blast offer. And you know what? They're easier to pay for! With Abyss Soldier you can discard the "staple" that is Sinister Serpent every turn, and with PWWB you can discard any card you want!

While neither of the aforementioned cards returns cards to the bottom of the Deck (and one of them doesn't return cards to the Deck at all) their effects are much easier to use. The reason for this is simple: There are virtually NO good WIND monsters, which leads to almost NO way of using Miyabi. With the exceptions of the Harpies, some Dragons, a couple of Insects, and 3-4 other monsters, all 105 currently available WIND monsters are terrible, and therefore should not be used, and subsequently gives Miyabi little to work with.

So with that said, what are the chances Miyabi will see play? Not high.
Should they ever release a card that produces WIND tokens, Miyabi may see some sunlight in some pure Bounce Decks. Until then however, Miyabi shall forever be stuck in the collections of those who like the Charmers, and those who enjoy humorous rulings, like this one: If you target the opponent's Fusion Monster for "Spiritual Wind Art - Miyabi", the Fusion Monster is placed on the bottom of the Fusion Deck. (Oh no!)

P.S. The actual ruling has the "(Oh no!)" in it.

Advanced: 1.5/5. It's difficult to use a card you can't easily pay for…
Traditional: 1.5/5. See Advanced.
Overall: 1.5/5.
Art: 5/5. Wynn is the second coolest Charmer, only because she has no jurisdiction over Fox Fire.

Dark Paladin
Spiritual Wind Art-Miyabi

Tribute one Wind monster on your side of the field. Select one card on your opponent's side of the field, and return it to the bottom of the owner's deck.

Here we go...*sighs* This card isn't bad, not at all. Of course, in a Wind deck, the only place this card can be used, it can be quite the opposite of bad.

Now, the Wind decks aren't played very often due to several reasons including the following:

One--There aren't many Wind monsters
Two--There aren't many GOOD Wind monsters Three--The only common Wind deck there is would be Harpies Four--How successful ARE Harpies

So, if you are brave enough to run a Harpie deck, run one of these, or at least try to.


3.5/5 in Harpie decks...I guess

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
Spiritual Wind Art - Miyabe
Group: Trap Card
Type: Trap
Tribute 1 WIND monster on your side of the field. Select 1 card on your opponent's side of the field, and return it to the bottom of the owner's Deck.
No. Just no.

Good wind monsters off the top of my head are...Spear Dragon, Ultimate Insect Lv5, Slate Warrior, and Spell Canceller. Which all of those couldnt just be thrown into a deck with 3 of these, That's WAY to ghetto. Spell Canceller has to stay on the field to get its effect, so....Just no.

None of these cards are like Spiritual Earth Art - Kurogane where you have Goats, and a lot of Earth support =/.

Traditional: 1/5

Advanced: 1.2/5

=|. Sorry.
