After damage calculation, destroy the opponent's monster that battled with the selected monster.

Do you ever look at a Blackwing card and think I should be playing this Deck, or perhaps, do Blackwings need MORE support?  Blackwing-Boreas the Sharp is kinda like Neo Spacian Grand Mole, except obviously for Blackwings.
 
We have a Level 5,Dark attributd, Winged-Beast monster, wih 130 attack and 900 defense, so you will likely never ever actually tribute for this Blackwing, it isn't even a Tuner.  You want Boreas in the Graveyard, as he activates his effect by removing himself from the Graveyard. 
 
By removing himself from the Graveyard, you choose a face-up Blackwing you control.  Said Blackwing can attack a monster this turn, without taking damage, or being destroyed, and the monster it chooses to have batted is destroyed. 
 
This is awesome.  Who doesn't like being able to destroy the "undestroyable" by simply removing a card from play?  Of course, your attack has to be successful.  Watch out for Traps and various other stoppers, but that would be par for the course.

Blackwings, oh Blackwings... Konami wants to give you so much "support".  Boreas isn't very sharp, let's get that out of the way. He isn't even very Boreas. Probably, I don't know. He's searchable through Black Whirlwind, but you don't want to search something like this. He's pathetic! Even Cards for Black Feathers (Crow's charity of choice... dammit alliteration) doesn't get this guy in the grave.

And because even getting him all the way to the graveyard just gives you a one-time effect that can't be used alongside Vayu and is no better than Smashing Ground... run-on sentences accomplish a lot more than Boreas the Blunt.

1/5
Art: Not as good as Vortex the Whirlwind and his googly eyes.
Fun Fact: Three weeks until Pokemon Black and White!
Tomorrow: Doppablehba.

Today’s card of the day is Blackwing – Boreas the Sharp. This is a level 5 blackwing with 1300 attack and 900 def, which is a pretty big insult to 5 stars in general. Its ability is interesting though, because you can remove him from the grave, choose a blackwing you control, and you take no battle damage, the bird is not destroyed, and the monster it battles dies at the end of damage calculation.

It is a situational card in my opinion. Though it is great at protecting tuners, it would probably see more play offensively than defensively. It looks more like a tech card for this format. Hit glads using its effect before they tag out, surprise sams with it when they try and hit hard, it seems like it would be sided rather than main decked.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
Art: 2/5

Boreas the Sharp is just a generally useless filler Blackwing card for STOR. His stats are terrible, he requires a tribute, he doesn't even do anything until he hits the graveyard, and even then, does nothing spectacular.

If you're really determined to use Boreas, you could try using Dark Grepher. That way, Grepher can also set up Vayu plays for you. Burial from a Different Dimension would work nicely too, reusing Boreas, Vayu, and Dark Armed Dragon fodder.

The main reason you should consider Boreas (and you really shouldn't) is that works similarly to Kalut, allowing you to attack anything you want, and guarantee it will go down. I really recommend you just avoid this card though.

Traditional: 1/5 Blackwings are already bad here, don't make them worse.
Advanced: 1/5 This is possibly the worst Blackwing released yet. Possibly.
Art: 2/5 Bora's useless older sibling?
