Back to the main COTD
Continuing to look at cards from Joey's World, we
come to a Mai Valentine character card, in Harpie
Lady Phoenix Formation. This is ridiculous support
for a theme, Ridiculously good support, that is. If
you control three or more Harpie Ladies and/or
Harpie Lady Sisters, you can activate this card.
Target as many Monsters as your opponent controls as
possible, so long as said number isn't more than the
number of Harpies you control. If successful, you
inflict Damage to your opponent equal to the highest
attack of the Monster destroyed. If more than one
Monster has the highest attack, you choose which
one. You cannot Special Summon from your Main or
Extra Deck the turn you use this card, but you still
can from the Graveyard. You can't conduct your
Battle Phase, which keeps this from being totally
broken, but it's still a great card for Harpie

Ah Harpie Lady Phoenix Formation a staple of Mai in
the Waking the Dragons saga and a card fans have
wanted ever since it was first revealed in the
anime. With Legendary Collection 4: Joey’s World the
fans dream has become a reality or is it a
Not surprisingly this card has been nerfed, the
anime version only required at least 1 Harpie Lady
and the opponent lost life points equal to the
combined ATK of all monsters that were destroyed.,
however Harpie Lady couldn’t attack. This card has
more conditions and a slightly weaker effect.
First off those Conditions, you need 3+ Harpie Lady
and/or Harpie Lady Sisters to activate his card.
Also you cannot conduct your Battle Phase and you
cannot special summon from your Main or Extra Decks.
These conditions really hurt this card, while
getting 3+ harpies isn’t really a problem for Harpie
decks, they mostly use cards like Elegant Egotist
and Harpie Channeller which special summon cards
from the Main Deck. These means that chances are you
will have to get the requirements for this card on 1
turn and then you would have to wait until the next
turn to use this card, hoping that your opponent
doesn’t remove your monsters in the meantime.
Of course, with so many conditions the effect has to
be good and overall it is, you can destroy cards up
to the number of Harpies you control; some that
would be at least 3 and then you inflict damage
equal to the highest original ATK of those destroyed
monsters, so monster destruction and life point
damage all in one, that is quite good. But of course
you can’t have a battle phase so you can’t really
capitalise on it.
Overall, this should have been Harpie decks killer
card, the card that should have made this deck
really good, but ii has too many conditions which
might actually slow down the deck rather than
