Blackbird Close

Blackbird Close
TypeCounter Trap


When a monster your opponent controls activates its effect: You can send 1 face-up "Blackwing" monster you control to the GY; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy it, then, you can Special Summon 1 "Black-Winged Dragon" from your Extra Deck. If you control a "Blackwing" Synchro Monster or "Black-Winged Dragon", you can activate this card from your hand.

  • Negates opponent’s monster effect.
  • Special Summons Black-Winged Dragon.
  • Can be activated from the hand.


  • Requires you to send a Blackwing monster to the graveyard.

Black-Winged Dragon

Usually, this monster is not considered good except when facing burn decks, but because you get to summon him with Blackbird Close you essentially get a powerful beater for free.

Blackwing Synchro

Blackwing Synchro monsters are very easy to summon with their archetype so you will often be able to activate Blackbird Close from your hand. If you have Assault Blackwing - Sohaya the Rain Storm, you can use him as tribute and then later revive him with his own effect.

Limit to one like they did champs vigilance or bring back champs vigi
Yet another super dumb mistake from Konami of America. Based on this card's artwork, the card's name is supposed to be Blackbird Cross, as in "crossing into the sunset"......

Not to mention the origin of the artwork is the scene where Crow is CROSSING the gap between Satellite and Top.

Nope. The Japanese name is also very clearly close, not cross. It's probably a pun on "Crow".

No, クローズ (Kurozu) can also be translated as "Cross". In fact, "Cross" was the translation YGOrg used before the TCG version comes out.

And yes, there's the pun, クローズ (Kurozu) can also be translated as "Crows".

......But "Crows" is definitely more closer to "Cross" than "Close" lmao

So the pun actually makes it definitely intended to be "Cross", not "Close".

Also did you just completely glossed over the anime reference?

Everything points to the name being meant to be "Cross".

They made many blunders like buster launcher as buster rancher and giant tornado as giant trunade.
So I need it in my hand and not set? Because when I set it, it did nothing

It's still a trap card so you can't activate the turn you set it. The card can be activated if you have any black wing synchro, otherwise it needs to be set.
Amazing card
This is good but Parshath >>>>> this
semi limit this card also, and blackwing will be balance, but it wont never happen until komoney get their target profit
Best card of the box, cucks all decks while dodging cyclone. Tier 0

I would be incredibly ebullient if it would be banned. :>
Hope this would be added into the Limited / Forbidden List.
This trap claps
The summon is optional right? Can I use it if I Don't have the dragon

This is much better than Starlight Road.
When you activated it from the hand you don't need to pay the cost, right?

Even when activating from the hand you must pay the cost.

Being able to be activated from hand does not remove the cost, unless the card specifically says so.

Really? It doesn't seem to be much better than Canadia or Floodgate
Cool but useless
No. But you can Special Summon it from the GY / banished zone if it was properly Ritual Summoned ...
