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.

Pros

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

Cons

  • 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.

Is there a reason this won't summon Black-Winged Dragon?

Read this trap card, then read BW Dragon carefully.

All shall be revealed.

Nope, I understand fine. OP probably didn’t read the “Negate AND destroy” part of this traps condition to summon Black Winged Dragon. Happens when you negate something in the graveyard, but nothing was actually destroyed.

Either OP has English as their second language or they went to public school in America. All the commas probably confused them.

Agreed. Hand trap thats also a counter trap wtf. What next red reboot? Watch ppl call that balanced too.

It only counters very specific things, so it is balanced. And if you're facing a BW deck you know that they might have this card in their hand and thus try to play around it.

To whoever thinks this bs is “balanced”: a trap card is supposed to be set in your spell and trap zone and wait one turn before its activation. Furthermore, a synchro monster is supposed to be synchro summoned on the field by having 2 or more monsters on the field to be sent to the botch for its summon. This card here completely bypasses BOTH these extremely big costs AT ONCE.

This card is very expensive and it special summon a very expensive monster. Because of their high prices this card is hard-limited through its price.

These two things make Blackbird Close very balanced. Now you just have to accept that fact and stop whiiiiining.

Probably the most clutch card to use in the current meta along with Necrovalley in the current meta. With Black Wings, those two cards helped me achieve KoG/DLv Max. Negate your opponent’s freedoms.

Do you need black-winged dragon for this to work or just any blackwing synchro monster

Any BW Synchro should work, literally says so on the text, you can use either Black-Winged Dragon or a BW Synchro.

Broken 🔥 card changed the whole duel and I couldn't even stop it with magician navigation for whatever made up reason.
There's not a single sentence in the card that tells you it can't be countered.

Yeah it's a good card. Anyway, the reason you couldn'y counter it it's because it's a counter-trap. It has an additional level of speed compared to a normal trap, so normal traps can't be chained to it.

doesn't it work on the hand with raikiri ?

Yes, I think this a bug. I can activate this card only if I have a Blackwing Tamer. Seems you cannot activate it from the hand if you control Assault Raikiri or Assault Chidori. Good that I haven't spent real money on those cards.

Maybe I'm mistaken about the activation of this trap card. Since I cannot remove my previous comment, I have to say that Duel Links is an awesome TCG game and I'll continue to spend money for UR cards. Anyway, sorry for the spam and if you can please delete my previous comment. Thanks :)

This card is working fine. You can use it with all Blackwing monsters, even if with Raikiri. Have in mind, that you cannot activate this trap to negate the activation of an effect after a monster is destroyed and/or is already in the graveyard.

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.

Not surprised there. The game reached a point of no return already for F2P. Not sure anything can...
It might be crazy with mayakashi.
Skill: Titan Showdown 3x Demise, King of Armageddon 2x Cyber Angel Dakini 3x senju 3x Sonic B...
This deck is powercrept beyond reasoning, can't do anything once your normal summon dies.
