Counters for Blackwings


  • The Deck is not very consistent
  • Requires several Synchro Monsters.

Take out their first Summon

Because Blackwings Decks rely on combos, the best way to counter their gameplan is to prevent them from performing these combos in the first place. By negating or destroying their first Summoned monster, which is usually Blackwing - Simoon the Poison Wind, you can severely incapacitate them for the rest of the Duel.

Disrupt their Combo

Blackwings Deck combos are quick and powerful but are also very unstable. You can easily disrupt their combos by negating a single effect or destroying a monster. Having a variety of Trap Cards is also recommended.

Go Second

If you are also running an aggressive Deck, similar to Blackwings, the player that goes second gains a significant advantage over the other player. However, this factor is one that players cannot control.
