Dark Paladin

Blackwing Armed Wing, which sadly should be our card for tomorrow, as it's the best card of the week, and I use the term "best" loosely, is a Winged-Beast Synchro monster who is Level 6 of the Dark attribute with 2300 attack and 1000 defense.

Blackwing Armed Wing is Synchro Summoned with a Blackwing Tuner and one or more non Tuner monsters. So, in short, we have a monster with trample when attacking defense monsters, who also gains 500 attack in the same situation...so 2800 and trample IS good...

However, you still have 2300 when attacking or being attacked in any other situation, but Blackwings are good enough, strong enough, and quick enough to get around little things like 2300 attack on a Level 6 monster.


Traditional: 2.65/5 Dark is good
Advanced: 3.65/5
Art: 4.5/5 Again, better if holo
General Zorpa Blackwing-Armed Wing

Here we have the second of the blackwing Synchros, and he is not quite as much of a doozy as his older cousin. He has 2300 ATK and 1000 DEF. This is subpar even for a level 5 Synchro, as Magical Android far outstrips it. What makes it good is that it is a level 6 Blackwing DARK Winged Beast. You do need a Blackwing Tuner to summon it though.

The effects are ok. He gains 500 ATK when he attacks a DEf position monster, which kills hoplomus and he has piercing, which is ratehr good. The effects are just icing on the cake pretty much. You almost exclusively use him after Goyo has died or for use in the OTK with Vayu from the next set.

All in all you need to play him as your level 6 Synchros in a Blackwing deck, but really nowhere else would need to have him at all.

Blackwing Armed Wing

    Today’s card up for review is Blackwing Armed Wing. This card is pretty cool. You only need one of this guy in a extra deck if you are using Blackwings. You won’t bring him out much, if you could, you would bring Goyo out first in most situations you will come across. Main reason I like him, besides the trample, is that you could drop Kalut with him. Not much to say about him besides that he is a solid card and staple in a Blackwing deck.

Trad: 1/5
Adv: 3/5

Blackwing Armed Wing …

Well, I’m a Blackwing player, so I kinda like this card automatically … essentially is just another Synchro option if u only have 6 stars available … but then again, for 6 stars – maybe u want to grab Goyo Guardian instead, no?

2300 ATK is on the lighter end for 6 stars, but when attacking something in DEF mode, his attack goes up by 500 and he pierces … that’s pretty good if it is down to the stretch and u are trying to finish you opponent off, or u have a Kalut in hand, and need to put the extra hurting on someone … But if neither of those are the case, like I said – u may wanna grab Goyo Guardian instead.

He’s really somewhere between a 3 and a 3.5 … but I hate giving those quarter ratings … and his picture DOES rock, so ....

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

We review another Blackwing monster today, the second synchro of the Blackwing series, Blackwing Armed Wing. Im going to go to the point on Armed Wing only because the card is completely thrown out there. Yes, the card is easy to summon regarding Blackwing decks as well as any deck that uses any level 3 monsters with Gale the Whirlwind. Armed Wing, when it attacks a defense monster it gains 500 and does piercing. Goyo Guardian is much better than Armed Wing and so is Iron Chain Dragon because they affect the opponent in a way the deck doesn't already. Bora the Spear already does piercing and you have Kalut if you really feel the need to boost up a monster. Dont get me wrong Armed Wing isn't bad, in fact its another good target for Kaluts effect and provides another level 6 synchro for Blackwings. Personally I dont like Armed Wing in any deck in multiples. 1 Armed Wing, 1 Goyo Guardian and 1 Iron Chain Dragon in any Blackwing deck is fine.

Traditional: 2.5/5
Advanced: 2.5/5
Lol Pisko Blackwing Armed Wing

Armed Wing is probably one of my favorite Synchros to summon in Blackwing. No matter what the opponent does, you're constantly putting pressure on them. There are times when Goyo is obviously superior(like when the opponent has Stardust out), but this thing just destroys everything else. Summon Armed Wing and set Icarus and you are in almost complete control. If you play Blackwing, there is no reason not to own one.

Traditional 5/5
Advanced 5/5

Black Wing Armed Wing is a simple yet good card. If it wasn't a synchro or if it was level 7 it would definitely see less play due to its effect being good, but not good enough. This card is great when you need an extra push towards your opponents life points and can usually end games premature coupled with the infamous Dark Strike Fighter. All in all it ios a good card but isn't used as a staple synchro due to its requirements.

Trad: 1.5
Adv: 3.0
Parallel Fates Blackwing Armed Wing…. Not only tramples, but gains another 500 attack points in the process when doing so. Already equipped with a base attack of 2300, it’s enough to get over pretty much anything that’s being played today with the exception of Destiny Hero Defender. The extra 500 is just icing on the cake.

When I look at this card, I think of a game finisher. Unless you can end the game with the trample, there is no reason why this monster should be favored over Goyo Guardian. It has lower attack and presents less field control/presence. Compared to Goyo’s 2800 attack, Armed Wing’s 2300 seems rather small as there’s plenty of monsters that can attack over it, or kamikaze.

Of course with Goyo only at 1, and the ease Blackwing decks have at synchro-summoning, this card is definitely worth running in the extra deck. That way if the Goyo synchro is negated or destroyed, you still have options aside from Gaia (which no one uses anyway)

This creature will likely only be seeing playing time in dedicated Blackwing decks, unless people decide to use Gale as tech in others.
