Chiwen, Light of the Yang Zing

 

Satellarknights, Burning Abyss and Shaddoll archetypes were introduced in DUEA and each of the three had been successful in tournament play.  Yang Zings never took off.

 

Like Burning Abyss, they replace themselves, but while Burning Abyss effects work on discard, Yang Zing has an even narrower band (battle/card effect).  Chiwen does have a nice Glow-Up Bulb-like ability and as a LV1 tuner along with the varying levels other Yang Zing monsters, it can come in handy.  It's a pretty good card for the deck type overall.

 

Yang Zings still have hope yet.  They're getting more support in future expansions and since Wyrm is a new monster type, it still has a lot of room to grow and get more support.  Maybe it's a good time to invest in them while they're overlooked, but they're just not strong enough yet.

Chiwen, Light of the Yang Zing

This is the key turner to the Yang Zings. His ability to "float" makes him the ideal piece to summon multiple monsters. The deck does suffer from key issues that make them unplayable in the eyes of shaddolls, burning abyss, and stellar knights. I do like the concept behind an entire deck of floaters; but, its just to late for them in the current format.

Advanced 2/5
Traditional 1/5

Ugh. Yang Zings, why must you be a disappointment? Well, let's take a look:
Level 1 Light Wyrm 0/0
"When this card you control is destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to your Graveyard: You can Special Summon 1 "Yang Zing" monster from your Deck, except "Chiwen, Light of the Yang Zing". When a "Yang Zing" monster(s) you control is destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to the Graveyard, while this card is in the Graveyard: You can Special Summon this card, and if you do, banish it when it leaves the field. You can only use 1 "Chiwen, Light of the Yang Zing" effect per turn, and only once that turn."
 
Level 1 means one for one, but that is probably a bad idea. It is searchable by literally every other yang zing monster, and light for honest, but again, probably a bad idea. The tuner interactions are fairly obvious, and it has that obligatory once per turn effect tacked on at the end.
 
The main thing that sets this card apart from the other Yang Zings is the effect that when a Yang Zing dies, you can special summon this card from the grave. A nice effect, and potentially abusable with Imperial Iron Wall.
 
Still, like every Yang Zing, it has a multitude of problems, ranging from Abyss Dweller, Soul Drain, and Macro Cosmos. Yang Zings bite.
 
Advanced:2.5/5
Traditional:1/5
