  • Strong ATK stats.
  • Destroys all Spell/Trap cards your opponent controls when it is Special Summoned to the Field.


  • Requires exactly 5 WIND monsters in your Graveyard to Special Summon.
  • Cannot be Normal/Special Summoned through any other means.
  • If this card leaves the field, you have to skip your next Battle Phase.


  • Due to the lack of support for WIND type monsters, and the harsh requirements to Special Summon Windrose the Elemental Lord, we will not see much potential for this card in the current competitive speed duel format.
  • You can choose to use this monster together with Harpies’ deck as an optional boss monster to be Special Summoned if you have 5 WIND monsters in your Graveyard.

WIND support

Troop Dragon is an excellent monster to search for another copy of itself from the Deck to the Field, if it was destroyed by battle. 4-Starred Ladybug of Doom can buy you some time to setup your Graveyard, while potentially destroy your opponent’s level 4 monsters. Altitude Knight is able to help you setup your Graveyard, if you can return monsters to the Hand/Deck once per turn.

This card has a good effect, we only need more wind supports to make this card easier to summon

Here is why this card is bad and good at the same time. The first is that it will be a dead card unless you can summon it. The good thing is its effect is good. Tips? Maybe try playing it something like Switcheroo to put it back if it become a dead card in your hand and pray it doesn't return until you have EXACTLY 5 Wind cards in your grave.

You can't summon this hot chick if you have more than 5 winds monsters. You're welcome. ;3

I agree for now that Windrose isn't really a card to use in elite PvP rankings, but I'll still grab as many as I can because maybe something will come out to make it a threat

You will brick hard. Against normal beatdown deck they can finish you at about 5th turn.

Try stick to only 1 element and more ways to tweak the amount of monster in your grave

Will work well in a last-gamble desert twister deck. Time to make this deck ;)

to summon this Card, is it necessary to have EXACTLY 5 Monsters in the GY or can I have more than 5 in the GY?

Wrong. If you exceed the threshold of 5 wind monsters you will fail to summon it, unless you have some cards that banish monsters from the GY in order to have exactly 5; no more, no less

This card's effect is good, the only problem is his hard summoning condition
Frustration 13days ago
I can't see this getting much play at all outside of casual. The summoning condition is super specific and you neg your next battle phase once it leaves the field. You'd be losing less cards by using Storm.

None. It's just a random card game original monster from the very early days of the franchis...
I'm annoyed that YGO sometimes have cards with amazing artwork that is crap when used in due...
Well, both are based on naturally, both shares similar looks.
