Another new member to the Blackwing archetype,
Kogarashi the Wanderer has a slightly easier effect
to pull off than its kin, Hillen the Tengu-wind, and
as such, could find its way into competitive builds
Like most Blackwing monsters, Kogarashi doesn’t help
the objectives of any Traditional format deck.
In the Advanced format, Kogarashi can Special Summon
itself from the hand whenever a face-up Blackwing
monster is destroyed by a card effect and sent to
the graveyard. This can be useful in a variety of
situations. Responding to such cards as Scrap
Dragon, Mirror Force, Torrential Tribute, Black Rose
Dragon, and others, gives Kogarashi a versatility
that few Blackwing cards have, at least from a
defensive perspective. With a respectable 2300
attack, it can be the perfect card to drop after the
field is nuked, leaving the opponent with one more
problem to contend with. Even if the field is left
intact, Kogarashi’s second effect can come in handy
in a variety of situations: aside from having its
summon negated, it can protect whatever Synchro it
summons from cards such as Torrential, Effect Veiler,
Bottomless Trap Hole, and also makes it so that the
first effect that happens upon a successful Synchro
Summon cannot be responded to by the opponent. This
means that if you decide to drop a Black Rose
Dragon, your opponent can only negate the Summon –
otherwise, the entire field gets wiped, and nothing,
not even Divine Wrath or Effect Veiler, can be used
in response. Taking these two effects into account,
Blackwing Kogarashi the Wanderer seems like another
good tech card that could find its way into
Whoa...nice pose guy. This is the blackwing that
should have you shook up. Nah not really, but far
from trashington. When a faceup BW you control is
destroyed and sent to the grave you can SS this bad
boy...bird...whats with that anyway? Blackwings
being either strange birds or dudes in cosplay or
humanoid birds...what was I oh yeah sent to the
graveyard you can SS this wanderer. 23/16 stats are
Level 6 is pretty high for a tuner but still the
option remains. In synching with this card you are
basically free to have a good time as the monster
cannot be stopped by spell, trap or monster effect.
Solemn, nope, Warning, nope, janky replacement for
Warning since you spent your money on some new J's
doesn't work either. Overall, not a terrible
blackwing, and should see some play. I still think
the archtype needs something better to get back on
the top tables in large numbers.
