Fighting the Metagame: Blackwing

Mensagem por dracofu em Seg 05 Mar 2012, 20:51

With numerous success including winning the World Championship 2009,
Blackwing is the deck to beat this metagame. Largely unaffected by the
Restriction List for the Asian format, Blackwing has an advantage with
the lack of Starlight Road.

Blackwing’s biggest strength lies in Black Whirlwind; allowing a
consistent flow of monsters. Having access to an arsenal of Synchro
monsters makes it very versatile; able to response to almost every

Playing Blackwing
Blackwing is mainly a Aggro-Control deck; it aims to dominate game
through flooding the field. Generally when Black Whirlwind is in play, a
Blackwing player would want to summon either Blackwing – Sirocco the
Dawn or Blackwing – Shura the Blue Flame to fetch Blackwing – Kalut the
Moon Shadow, Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind or Blackwing – Blizzard the
Far North, accordingly to situation. Kalut provides a 1400 ATK boost for
your Blackwing monsters, while Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind and
Blackwing – Blizzard the Far North provides options through the Synchro
monsters. Icarus Attack has no activation timing, making it possible to
chain to a spell or trap to generate a 2 for 3 trade. Ability to main
Royal Oppression without affecting the deck itself also makes Blackwing
strong against most decks that are heavy on Special summoning.

While Blackwing – Sirocco the Dawn is on the field, special summon
Blackwing – Bora the Spear and Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind. Using
Blackwing – Sirocco the Dawn’s effect to focus on Blackwing – Bora the
Spear, making it ATK 5000. Tune Blackwing – Sirocco the Dawn and
Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind for Scrap Dragon or Infernity Doom
Dragon. Activate Scrap Dragon’s or Infernity Doom Dragon’s effect to
take out opponent’s monster, and direct attack for 5000 damage with
Bora. A potential One-Turn-Kill.

When Black Whirlwind is on the field, summon Blackwing – Blizzard the
Far North and choose to have the both trigger effects to go on the
chain as follow:
Chain 1: Blackwing – Blizzard the Far North’s effect
Chain 2: Black Whirlwind’s effect
Having Black Whirlwind’s effect at Chain 2, prevents your Blackwing –
Blizzard the Far North’s effect being negated by Royal Oppression or
Divine Wrath. However, do note that this is only useful for flooding,
since Oppression will still be able to negate your Synchro summon.

Playing against Blackwing
Bottomless Trap Hole and Trap Hole are extremely effective as they stop
the Blackwing player from gaining a card through Black Whirlwind.
My Body as a Shield is decent in stopping Icarus Attack, turning it into a 2 for 1.
Dust Tornado is able to take out Black Whirlwind and Royal Oppression.
As much as possible, do take out Black Whirlwind as it will heavily slow
down the Blackwing player.

Despite being heavily teched against, Blackwing is still a very
strong deck due to its consistency and versatility. Expect about 30-50%
of the players to be playing Blackwing.
