Didn't we cover how about all the Evilswarm Monsters in this set have attacks and defenses that end in 50?  Does that annoy anybody else?  Evilswarm Thunderbird, a Level 4, Dark attributed, Thunder Monster, with 1650 attack and 950 defense, is a very interesting Monster.  During either player's turn, when a card or effect is activated, you can remove this card from play.  During the next Standby Phase, it returns to the Field, with 300 extra attack.  So that bumps you to 1950, I'd say you'd have to successfully do this three times (2550 attack) for him to really be a problem.  It's worth noting his effect doesn't negate or destroy any effects, simply removes himself.  He's not specifically Evilswarm support, you could certainly use him in other Decks, if you wanted.  He's kinda slow, and we're in a fast Format, but if you get one, hold onto him.  He may be more valuable as time goes on.

Evilswarm Thunderbird is a rather interesting card, as it reminds me of Strike Ninja (google it) in a way. A DARK/Thunder type, with the odd stats 1650/1050 for ATK/DEF. Once per turn, when an card is activated or an effect goes off (Except during the damage step) you can banish this card, and during the next standby phase of any player, Thunderbird returns to the field, and if it does so through this effect, it gains 300 ATK. I like this card as it can get around a lot of cards, including Torrential Tribute. And when it returns from the field, it gains an extra 300 ATK, going up to 1950 which is good. Thunderbird is not really a key part of the Evilswarm deck as a whole, but it can be a little handy at times.
