Ice Beast Zerofyne

June 14th, 2013

If you’re playing with a Blackwing or Harpie Deck, make room in your Extra Deck for Ice Beast Zerofyne! Zerofyne is a Rank 4 Xyz Monster from Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy that can be Summoned by combining 2 Level 4 Winged Beasts. When you’re getting overwhelmed by powerful card effects, Ice Beast Zerofyne will level the field by negating every face-up card your opponent controls and increasing its own Attack Points to incredible heights!

Blackwings: Neither down, nor out

March 17th, 2011

After the release of the latest Forbidden & Limited Cards list, many Duelists seem to be writing off Blackwings as no longer a competitor. With two Book of Moon and two Blackwing – Kalut the Moon Shadow eliminated from the Deck, as well as the loss of an Icarus Attack and (in many builds) a Solemn Warning, some people no longer see Blackwings as an option. It’s just not true though, and it’s very unfortunate to see so many Duelists taking that stance.

Monday Night Matchup: Blackwings VS LIGHT Gemini Beatdown

November 1st, 2010

Back in September, some Duelists had written off Blackwings as a competitive force. With Black Whirlwind Limited, people were taking a very pessimistic stance on the Deck’s chances to thrive. They were wrong. Duelists who were clever enough to see that Delta Crow – Anti Reverse along with Pot of Duality and Cards for Black Feathers paved the way for Blackwings to take two of the top 4 spots in YCS San Jose, as well as two top 8 placements in YCS Philadelphia.

LIGHT Gemini Beatdown has only recently become a huge hit, starting with a Top 16 appearance at YCS Toronto, and then later with a victory at YCS San Jose. While both versions had their own creative stance, they both retained the same basic strategy. With the ability to completely shut down the opponent with cards like Solemn Warning and Thunder King Rai-Oh and then defeat their opponent with very high ATK monsters, LIGHT Gemini Beatdown can cause an unprepared Duelist a pretty big headache.

But what happens when these two Decks meet? Find out in this week’s Monday Night Matchup!
