If you control a "Black-wing" monster other than "Black-wing - Gale the Whirlwind", you can Special Summon this card from your hand. Once per turn, you can halve the ATK and DEF of 1 face-up monster your opponent controls.

Well, this card or bw used in decks can also be used in other deck that can help because its effect is very good and served on many occasions to reduce points of attack and defense and also to make the deck synchro but exploits its power bw it can be called special and so is easier to make a synchro but both the other deck and deck bw can be used either for this is limited

Strategies and game play:

This card can be played in several deck if you know it but most use either use it on deck because there bw exploits its power by the effects and is easier to use this card deck is used specially convened bw and then synchronized and so is easy and you can also use your other hand to weaken the effect that is what is done in the other deck if you're not using a deck bw

Combos with other cards:

gale + other bw no tuner
Normal summon the bw no tuner and special summon gale= easily summon a synchro

gale + Black whirlwind + bw
Active black whirlwind and then summon a bw so you can bring and summon gale

Gale + Black whirlwind + breeze + sirocco + bora
First of all activate then summon a black whirlwind normal sirocco either by their effector to activate normally black whirlwind, and bring a breeze and its effect will be convened after that especially after a gale summon bora and especially that will leave a perfect field on your side and more on top can make a perfect offensives since their powers reach the 6100 points of attack that can destroy your opponent

foolish + vayu + gale + shura + armor master (en el cemetery)
foolish active and carry the cemetery vayu synchro of 8 Black wing silver wind the ascendant after a shura normal summon and special summon gale after gale effect and divide in half the atk and then synchro of 7 armor mater (a perfect offensive).

gale + bw Zephyros (graveyard) + other monster face up
First activate the effect of Zephyros the Elite and the cemetery summon another monster to get at you in her field and then summon a gale so you can very easily summon a synchro

Gale + Icarus Attack + Delta Crow Anti Reverse
Summon a BW, then Especially Gale. Active Delta Crow and then Icarus Attack. So you can sacrifice Gale having another monster you control to destroy all cards face-down Spell or Trap. With Icarus, you can destroy trap or magic cards or face up monsters on the field quickly. Then a direct attack with your BW

Ways to counteract it:
The good thing is you can not stop by BTH or Trap hole because attack is 1300 and isa special convocation but by Solemn Judgment or solemn warning

Solemn warning

solemn judgment

royal oppression

Thunder King Rai-Oh

Compulsory Evacuation Device

Raigeki break

torrential tribute


Its special summon effect is very good and can be divided up more points of attack and defense and is not affected by BTH or Trap hole and is very easy to synchro summoning its effect


The downside of this letter is that the special convocation is if there is a bw in the field and in the other deck can not be used to its full potential and more over is very vulnerable to traps and spells as their attack is under


Artwork and aesthetics:

The letter is very good gale the image is very good I like

Overall rating:
10 perfect card

Gale is used in so many decks now not just Blackwings because it halves the attack of any monster on your opponents side of the field and with a level 4 on the field you can make the best synchro ever Blackwing Armor Master.
This card is great

this card is in way so many other decks than BW
although ur right in a BW deck is the best way to use it to full pontential as you can easily in one turn synchro summon a level 7 or 6 synchro
