Pojo's Yu-Gi-Oh Card of the Day

Silpheed
Common

Fairy / Effect Monster
This card can only be Special Summoned by removing 1 WIND monster in your Graveyard from play. When this card is destroyed and send to the Graveyard as a result of battle, your opponent discards 1 card randomly from his/her hand.

Type - Wind / 4 / 1700 / 700
Card Number
- IOC-022

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale 1 being 
the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating

Date Reviewed - 5.06.04

dawnyoshi Slypheed isn't too bad at all. It's a special summon, it has average attack strength, and its effect is true annoyance. It's basically saying to your opponent, "hey, want to attack?"

Of course, your opponent may just do that. 1 card isn't going to kill them all the time, or perhaps they have emptied their hand already. Perhaps they want to use monster removal on Slypheed, which works as well, since it requires your opponent using a card up in his/her hand. Either way, it will cost the opponent to destroy Slypheed.

Constructed: 3/5

Limited: 3/5

Slypheed's ability in limited isn't as useful as in constructed, but the special summon ability certainly helps bring out higher level monsters. 
ExMinion OfDarkness Thursday:
Silpheed

Tuesday gave us a modified Yata, Thursday gives us a modified Don Zaloog.

You only have to remove one Wind monster, and you get a 1700 attacker with the only part of Don Zaloog's effect you actually use. However, you're giving up an extra card in hand (as you're most likely summoning the same turn you use this). I'd only use this if you -KNOW- you're going to get the discard. It IS witchable, so if you have a wind in the graveyard, it might be something to think about grabbing if you can get rid of an opponent's monster threats.

However, I personally think you're better off playing a Don Zaloog with an Equipment card on it rather than risking having this be a dead card in your hand without any monsters to special summon it. Keep in mind, people ARE playing Kycoo more these days because of the two Envoys, so if your opponent knows this is coming, they'll remove all your Wind monsters in order to keep this card stuck in your hand.

But at least you have Slate Warrior as backup in this kind of Deck. In threes, if you want to stand a chance.

2.75/5 Wind Deck 
Tranorix Thursday: Silpheed

Silpheed is yet another remove-from-grave-to-summon monster, in my opinion one of the better ones. For it you remove a WIND monster; WIND is another attribute for which it shouldn't be too hard to find good monsters; off-hand I can think of Yata, Spear Dragon, and Slate Warrior. These certainly won't inhibit very many decks.

The stats aren't bad; 1700 is fairly respectable. It can take out most monsters in a typical Control deck, and it can hit for a nice amount of damage if need be; but of course, it gets obliterated by the everyday Beatstick. 700 DEF is, well, pretty bad.

That's fine though; you (probably, possibly) WANT Silpheed to be destroyed. When it is, your opponent discards one card from his hand. Okay. There's really not much more to be said about that; it can be good and bad. It's bad if you get something like Despair from the Dark or Sinister Serpent, and it's good if you get something like Raigeki or Duster. It's definitely a nice little effect to have, and Silpheed certainly couldn't hurt in a Wind, Control, or, dare I say, Wind-Control deck.

Typical tournament deck: 3/5
Wind-Control deck: 4/5
OVERALL RATING: 3.5/5
