Blackwing-Blizzard the Far North, closes out the week, and it's going to be short and sweet. We have decent theme support for a respectable theme...that hasn't quite completely taken off, but may after another set or two...we'll see.

A Level 2, Winged-Beast type monster, who gets the bonus of being a Tuner and oddly Dark attributed...Blizzard, Bird...Wind, Water...but Darwing, whatever...1300 attack, 0 defense...no problems really, you just want the effect: Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Blackwing monster from your Graveyard in face-up defense postion when this card is Normal Summoned.

General Zorpa Blackwing-Blizzard the Far North

Well, everybody is going to be reviewing this guy in pretty much the same way, so it seems kinda pointless to do a full review. He Special Summons Blackwings, is a Tuner and does everything that they like to do except o be Special Summoned. He is not even a potent force in the Blackwing deck, usually only being played in a singleton or in a pair. When you can search for it so easy, you really don't need to play more than that.

Usually this guy synchros up with a Blackwing of the level 4 variety for a quic Synchro of Armed Wing or Goyo Guardian. He does not negate their effects like other Tuners that Special Summon, so you can even get Gale back if you need to get a particular monster dead.

That is pretty much Blizzard in a nutshell, he's good at doing what he does and is a potent weapon in the Blackwing Arsenal.

    Today’s card up for review is the highly talked about Blackwing-Blizzard the Far North. This guy is wicked simply put! Simply put you can summon this guy, grab a Level 4 from from your yard, and make a Level 6 Synchro right there. You can also grab something like Gale to help get rid of a threat on the board, and possibly synchro after that, depending on what the rest of your hand looks like. Only downside is that you cannot special summon him, but if you could, he would be utterly broken. Very good card and a staple in Blackwings!

Blackwing - Blizzard the Far North ...

As a Blackwing player, i'm kinda partial to this card, although he's not all THAT great ... don't get me wrong - he's PRETTY good ... just not fantastic. 1300 ATK ... meh. Forgivable. And fairly ok for a Level 2 monster. He can deal damage if he has to. Dark attribute? - awesome. We know. And his effect of special summoning a level 4 or lower blackwing monster is obviously excellent. Himself being a Tuner, we all know what that sets up. So these are all plusses.

But what takes points away is that his attack would better if it was either higher OR lower ... that way black whirlwind would work with this guy. Right now, there are no blackwings with less than 1300 atk so his normal summon does nothing to replenish your hand. if he were a bit lower, then Gail's normal summon could fetch him with whirlwind, making Blizzard that much better.

Also, he only gets said effect when he's normal summoned. That definitely balances him, but also bringing out the special summoned monster in DEF mode? awww ... man? ...

But he still rocks.

Well, today is my birthday, hurray! And whats weird is today we look at a card that is in my main deck, the mighty Blackwing - Blizzard the Far North. Our fine feathered friend is a 1300 attack level 2 tuner monster that special summons 1 level 4 or lower Blackwing monster from the graveyard in defense position. A lot of the pro players only like to use 2 of these in their decks where as I like to use 3. This being because I use cards like Ultimate Offering as well, which combined with cards like Dark Eruption allows for multiple Synchro Summons in a single turn, who wouldn't like a Goyo Guardian and 2 or 3 Blackwing Armed Wings in one turn? The only bad thing is it can't be special summoned but if it could it'd kind of be rather stupid as most people would want its effect.

This card cannot be Special Summoned. When this card is successfully Normal Summoned, you can Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower "Blackwing" monster from your Graveyard in face-up Defense Position.

This card is a Junk Synchron for Blackwings. The things that make this card a little bit better is the wider range of levels and you can use your blackwing monsters effect(s). This is one of those “you get something good for playing inside of the theme” things and it's not that bad. Unfortunately this card can't be special summoned so that limits his potential in a swarm deck. He should be ran at one at the most two but don't try to push it in there because this a late game card.

Trad: 2.0 (Maybe some good for BW's in Traditional)
Advanced: 3.0 (Over hyped Chicken Wings get a Junk Synchron.)
