Default Blackwing - Gladius the Midnight Sun

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Blackwi...e_Midnight_Sun

If the only face-up monster you control is a "Blackwing" monster, except "Blackwing - Gladius the Midnight Sun", you can Special Summon this card (from your hand). Once per turn, this card cannot be destroyed by battle.


Seems like the new BW is on DN now.
As promised by the Jump, here is our new Blackwing Card. Effect's the same as stated weeks before. So what are your impressions? A decent addition to the Blackwing pool or just another useless card for the black birdies?

In my opinion it may not be all in all that great card but it opens some new plays for the BW archetype - and in comparison to the crap Konami released, except for Zephyros, it seems godlike.
Gladius makes rank 3 xyzs/6 star synchros with Breeze, Gale and - if you're in a pinch - Kalut, xyz at least, and also the summon of Silverwind or Mist Wurm easier.

Not that great. There are better BWs out there right now than this.

A substitute of Spirit Reaper for Blackwings... it's not so bad but it's not so good either. The special summon thing saves it though

This card has been out for awhile on DN. And is simply put: Amazing. such an amazing card. People who say its terrible most likely haven't tested it themselves.

This is being released along with Gram and Damascus? Are there any other BW cards announced for release? I never thought Konami would once again revisit the archetype and with such emphasis.

At this point they're pretty much just printing the cards Crow used in the manga.

It allows for some nice rank 3 plays and is an effective floater. Worth maining 1 if you want to play it.

[I don't see why people are just saying it's bad. It's main purpose is to get out Rank 3s and opens up synchro options]

In yugioh, there is a difference between bad and not good
