Blazewing Butterfly is our Gemini for today, and this might be one Gemini monster to go ahead and think about using...that is, of course, if you are all ready playing a Gemini Deck, as he obviously has no place anywhere else.

After second summoning our blazing friend here, you can tribute this Insect to the Graveyard to Special Summon a different Gemini monster from your Graveyard who all ready has its second summoend effect.

Right now, there aren't that many Gemini monsters, let alone good ones, and it really isn't too solid of a decktype yet. If some of those problems can be worked out, than this guy could take hold, at least in the Deck.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1.5/5

Advanced: 2.5/5

Art: 4/5
General Zorpa Blazewing Butterfly
 
This guy makes Geminis almost playable. It allows you to tribute it while face up on the field in order to Special Summon a Gemini from your graveyard with it's effect turned on. The problem with this is that it itself is a Gemini, requiring you to use your Normal Summon in order to even get it eligible to activate it's effect. It is searchable by UFO Turtle, but it is just not worth the effort to play Gemini monsters other than Il Blud and Doom Shaman. If we get more effect monsters that help the Gemini cards as a theme, then they are stuck in the annals of mediocrity.
 
Traditional-1/5
Advanced-2/5
Master Tricks
Blazewing Butterfly
    This card supports all Gemini monsters which is excellent for them, but again, isn't worth our time and effort to use unless running some mad Gemini deck with Chtonian Emperor Dragons or the King Pyron Burn Deck.
 
Tradtional: 1/5
Advanced: 2.5/5

i think i've just about caught up. phew!  i know it looks like its going to be 'forgotten crappy themes' week, or 'gemini week,' but fridays is going to be good.
 
so blazewing butterfly is a cool idea for geminis, but the second summon throws if off. i guess if you're going to run geminis, run this. good gemini support, but geminis are so bad that this card sadly gets shunted off to the side with a measilly 1/5 in all. good concept though, and geminis need it. cool art though. oh and by the way, i know i'm writing short reviews; but when i cant think of anything else to say, i stop writing. nothing more.
 
trad. 1/5
 
adv. 1/5
 
gemini deck 5/5
 
art. 3.5/5 attack of the burning butterflys of death!
