  • Halves your opponent’s attack.
  • Self Special Summoning effect.
  • Tuner.


  • Special Summoning requires you to already control a Blackwing monster.


  • The attack halving effect is useful for bringing down powerful monsters and is generic enough to be somewhat useful outside of Blackwing Decks.


Most of the better Blackwing monsters are good at Special Summoning, opening up opportunities for Synchro plays. Some non-Tuner Blackwing monsters can Special Summon themselves when another Blackwing is on the field, allowing you to pair them with Gale the Whirlwind. Blackwing - Sura the Blue Flame and Blackwing - Tornado the Reverse Wind can Special Summon Gale the Whirlwind.

Blackwing Synchro

You will usually be summoning level-7 Blackwing Synchro monsters with Gale the Whirlwind, and luckily this is also the level of their more powerful Synchro monsters.

Too bad targeting effect is terrible as long as Cocytus still exist in the meta.

Still great Synchro material even if you don't use that effect, though the effect is a good option too for cards that can be targeted

Yeah, I don’t use it’s atk reduction effect nearly as much as I use it to special summon for synchro plays. Most of your opponents monsters end up getting blown up by Raikiri’s effect anyways by that time you get to your battle phase.
can you debunk this?

Nope, its effect activates on the field.

If you are talking about it's special summoning, that is summoning condition, not effect activation. So, no as well.
His facial expression reminds me of Yagami Light when he says something like: "this is not possible, how did he find out?!"
This chick has a facial expression as if he is sitting in a toilet with constipation.. sorry
I was waiting for this Card for 1 year and finally we will get it!

The Box box in duel links yet, absolutely worth it to buy packs.

Isn't goblindergh a slightly worse version of dynaterium? It takes your normal summon that ...
As a Roaming Duelist. He won't be unlockable
They sure like to release cards that can get through strong established boards.
Imagine playing antimeta deck but unable to climb high enough to play against meta decks
