Dark Paladin


I chose some great cards for this week, so I hope everyone out there enjoys them! Blackwing--Breeze the Zephyr is another great Tuner monster to come into the Blackwing World. We have a Level 3, Winged-Beast, Dark attributed (Wind or even Fire seems more
appropriate) with 1100 attack and 300 defense.

Now, if our cute little friend is added from your Deck to your Hand by the effect of a Monster, Magic, or Trap card, you can Special Summon this card from your Hand. As a bit more of a side-effect, you can't use this as a Synchro Monster except for a Blackwing Synchro Summon.

No big deal here at all. It's quick, makes Synchro Summoning for Blackwings faster and easier, and even as someone who likes Blackwings you can't help but wonder if the pouring of support will ever let up...

Blackwing-Breeze the Zephyr

This is one of the new Blackwing cards form the TSHD set, and arguably one of the better ones. We start off with a level 3 DARK WInged-Beast with 1100 ATK and 300 DEF. DARK Winged-Beast gives this guy a lot of wiggle room as far as playability, and the fact that it is a Tuner is just great.

The effect is that when it is added to your hand by the effect of a Spell, Trap or MOnster effect, you can Special Summon it. It can only be used to Synchro Summon Blackwing Synchro monsters though.

This is NOT a replacement for Gale. A lot of people are saying that. It just menas that Whirlwind is that much more important to the deck and that Sangan may be teched in the deck so that you can get some defense as well as comboes off. As far as I am concerned, the card is hyped. IMO Ghibli is more of what the deck needed, a way to stop OTK's that is searchable by Sangan and Whirlwindable by ANY other Blackwing. It can be offensive as well as defensive too.

I woul dnot by any means say that Breeze is bad, he just may be tech in an already crowded Blackwing lineup. I have to say if you find you are putting Mistral in your deck, this guy is way better.



Blackwing - Breeze the Zephyr ...

Brand new Blackwing ... as if they needed any more help. Simply stated - Zephyr is awesome. Awesome name. Awesome picture. Awesome effect. Added to your hand from the deck by any special means - u get to summon this little level 3 tuner. The only drawback is that u can only use her to tune for a Blackwing synchro monster ... Which isn't a HUGE drawback as most of them are pretty great. Blackwings are already awesome, and have various methods of extracting Zephyr from the deck, but she isn't just limited to Blackwing decks, and the most popular searcher in the game (Sangan) can fetch her, regardless of WHAT deck u are playing. U will at least get a free summon of an 1100 ATK monster, and depending on what else u have going on, u can probably use her to do much more. Think of the fun if u 1st tune and synchro summon with Sangan, and then get its effect, bring Zephyr to the field, and then tune Zephyr with another floating level 4 that u also had out, to also bring out the Armor Master? - fun times. The only other hiccup to Zephyr is if u draw her 1st, without having extracted her from the deck on your own terms. Then it'll be like any other level 3 tuner monster .... with loads of theme support.

Tons of combos will be used an abused. Blackwings have the best tuners in the game.

N o V a

Today we introduce another new Blackwing to the Yu-Gi-Oh! universe. Blackwing - Breeze the Zephyr, basically the new Blackwing - Gale the Whirlwind strictly for Blackwings. When its added from your deck to your hand by a card effect, you can special summon it from your hand, and it cannot be used for a synchro summon unless its for a Blackwing synchro monster. Its got 1100 attack so its easily searchable with Black Whirlwind if you summon Kalut, Shura, Sirocco, Bora and even Gale. It gives Blackwings a way to synchro faster, since Gale was limited which slowed down their synchro engine. Breeze adds more ways to speed up synchro summons, Vayu was one card that was going to help speed things up, but it only worked while in the graveyard. On top of that, if you wanted to special summon the monster you special summoned off of Vayu's effect, you couldn't because it wasn't properly summoned. With Breeze, those monsters are properly summoned. Shame it doesn't activate its effect whenever its added to the hand from anywhere, if it did you could use it with Dark Eruption, which would add it back from the graveyard to the hand, but unfortunately its only from the deck. However that should be more than enough for Blackwings.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3.5/5


Breeze the Zypher is a solid new addition to Blackwing decks and was bumped up to Ultra Rare status. Why is this a Blackwing when it's completely orange? Anyway, Breeze is meant to be used in leiu of the two Gales missing from your deck since last September, even though it's orange. This card is an improved Watapon (blasphemy!) that can only make Blackwing Synchros, because it's orange.

Aside from being orange, the only way to get max use out of this is by getting it through Black Whirlwind, even though there are absolutely no black feathers on it. It can be extremely useful, but dead if you draw it because it's not black.

Art: It's Gale in Kalut's position... But how is it a Blackwing?
Fun Fact: Falkner uses this card... Even though it's orange.
Tomorrow: Thank Arceus this card is actually black.
