Due to all the work I had to do before spring break, I didnâ€™t have much time to write a post! Anyways though before I started my post, I wanted to answer a question I saw on Yahoo: How do you know if there are foil cards in your booster pack. Common and rare cards, foil cards have a special plastic over them that make them holographic which adds extra weight to the card. Therefore, you can get a pocket scaler and measure the weight of each pack and the heavier oneâ€™s will probably be the one with the foil cards.
In my last post, I talked about Assault Monsters, the new type of cards from Crimson Crisis. Today I will talk about the Black Wing monsters who also debuted in the Crimson Crisis. Black Wing monsters are the type of monsters Yusseiâ€™s friend Crow uses. Black Wing monsters are dark, winged-beast monsters. Black Wing monsters focus on changing attack and defense in order to weaken the opponentâ€™s monsters. All Black Wing monsters can be swarmed, or summoned numerously.
The strongest Black Wing Monster is Armor Master. Heâ€™s a synchro monster so you can easily play him. When Armor Master attacks he can put a Wedge Token on that monster. The selected monsterâ€™s attack and defense are 0 for the turn. An amazing combo with Black Wing monsters is to summon all of them in one turn (it is possible due to their abilities) and then Black Wings Bora the Spear and Sirocco the Dawn will gain a ton of attack points with their special abilities.
I find the Black Wing Monsters interesting because their group abilities are very distinct. And in the show, Crow looks like a tough enough duelist to handle these cards. Iâ€™d like to see what they can do.
