This card is crappy because it falls under one of my
big beliefs about the game: Destruction effects >
It's almost ALWAYS better to destroy a card outright
as opposed to stopping it from being used. This is
why Jinzo fell out of favor once better options
became available, this is why Giant Trunade only
belongs in decks that can win in the one turn of
freedom it provides, etc.
This is horrible, seriously. 500 ATK and you only
stop S/Ts for one turn...or if it's attacked, 1500
DEF and your opponent just has to not activate their
S/Ts in Main Phase 2 -- they can still set stuff and
just use it next turn!
This card is filler at its finest -- will never see
any kind of competitive play and for good reason.
Yu-Gi-Oh continues to widen ones horisons (well,
about the living) to the realm of flying Weasels.
Locking down the activation of most cards a player
controls can be powerful, as shown by Cold Wave.
However, you would prefer to be able to trigger this
effect in your own turn (in order to attack without
fear) or at the start of your opponent's turn. A
Flip effect does not provide this flexibility, and
with a fairly unimpressive body, this spinning
otter-esque thing doesn't make the cut.
Share and enjoy,
This monster is not really all that bad.
As far as decks that could utilize him, I think
Cyber Stein could work closely in hand with it.
Acting like another s/t protection card (DUH).
Yet being a flip effect hurts his playability. His
stats are way to low. He will probably never be seen
in the main/side decks of a top 8, simply b/c he is
Right now it is all about speed. My Body as a Shield
does what he wants to do only better. Simply b/c it
rids itself of the threat.
I think Cold Wave does this better, but at least
with this the opponent is fairly screwed. Lock-down
tech is sweet, and if Tsukuyomi was back I could see
this being fairly sweet in the right tempo deck ,
still as it is it’s not that good.
Flip this on the opponent turn (somehow) and that’s
fairly decent, locking them in for the turn. Odds
are though that this won’t happen because the most
likely way of flipping this will be through battle,
but if you manage it on your turn then you’re fairly
safe since their traps are their own, and unless
they chain to the flip summon they’re locked down.
In short, enormous potential, but limited this
Traditional : 1./5
Advanced ; 1.5/5
Art ; 3/5 Nice
MPS ; 3/5 I like it
I really love this card.... Not really for the card
itself but for its hilarious name. No actually it
isn't a very bad card most reviewers will probally
disagree but could potentially work in a Beast deck
for a Flip Effect version of " Cold Wave " kind
of..... Not really but I try to make these cards
usefull =/. No this card isn't going to doo much if
your opponent triggered the effect during their turn
they will just not play anything else then end their
turn. Now " If " you flip WW during your turn you
have a great protection for a offensive attack with
anything big like Berserk Gorrilla, Enraged Battle
Ox, Or Indomitable Fighter Lei Lei for a Beast deck
but other then that it isn't really something you
want to add to your deck without any thought.
This card could benefit Beast deck but in my opinion
" Cold Wave " is a better card or just sidedeck
Whirlwind Weasel to test out new stuff ^.^
Traditional Format > 1.0/5:
Not of any use here in Traditional like most recent
cards released nowadays
Advance Format > 2.1/5:
Beast deck maybe ?
Artwork > 4/5:
I love the artwork of this card but I love the name
more lol :D
Today we look at WhirlWind Weasel. Didnt even know
this card was out till I looked at the review. But
Basically its stops your opponent from activating
any spells or traps for the rest of turn. Could be
good, if you think you have game. Might be good will
Cyber Stein, could be game ending. It still doesnt
destroy them though.
Short review today, but I wont be hard on this card.
