There's a number of benefits this card can provide for a Harpie deck.  It's another Harpie name for Hysteric Sign and Harpie's Hunting Ground.  It replaces itself when destroyed, searching Harpie's Channeler, Harpie's Dancer and Harpie Lady 1.  It's Normal Summon effect, if you have a monster to spare, can remove an Extra Deck monster and set you up for a direct attack.  And 1700 ATK, considering you can boost it with HHG and HL1, is good stats for a monster with quality effects.
 
Harpie's won't be high tier, especially in a format where Spells/Traps are relatively less important, but they can win locals or top Regionals.  Harpist doesn't address the core weaknesses of the deck, such as having a strategy other than Spell/Trap removal, but it improves the consistency of the deck.
 
3.25/5

Harpie Harpest opens are week as we dive into our new set.  This is another good Harpie support card, how about that?  It's Harpie Lady on the Field or Graveyard, and is Wind, of course.  Level 4, 1700 attack, and 600 defense.  When Normal Summoned you can target a Winged-Beast on the field other than this card and return it to the Hand.  Wind Monsters like to bounce.  During the End Phase if this card is in the Graveyard, select and add a Winged Beast from your Deck to your Hand who has attack lower than 1500, like Harpie Lady.  I know there aren't many HL Decks out there, but if there were, you'd be playing one or two of these.  Love seeing good support for old themes

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
New set sneak peak, new cards to review! Harpie Harpist adds new support to the Harpie archetype, potentially revitalizing their playability. Two effects, each able to be used once per turn. Good stats and compatible with the rest of the Harpie Winged-Beast support. Also Harpiest is considered “Harpie Lady” while on the field and in the grave, adding more “Harpie” support for Pet Dragon or Pet Baby Dragon.
 
When Harpie Harpist is Normal Summoned you have the option of popping another Winged-Beast of yours and 1 monster your opponent controls back to the hand. While you typically want all the Winged-Beasts in a Harpie deck on the field, this effect is handy for getting rid of that troublesome monster that's blocking you from your opponents LP, as well as getting around monsters that gain effects off being destroyed.
 
If Harpie Harpist is in the grave the turn she was sent there by any means (monster, spell, trap effect(s)), you can search out a Level 4 1500ATK or less Winged-Beast from your deck. This in a Harpie deck will give you a free Channeler, Dancer, or any of the Harpie Lady 1, 2, or 3 monsters.
 
While the first effect can be beneficial for any deck that uses an abundance of Winged-Beasts (Blackwings), the second effect is mainly for Harpie decks only. Harpie Harpist could find its way into Blackwings if they had a space for her, but that deck is pretty clogged as is with the ability to run 3's of Blizzard, Kalut, and Gale. Harpies always could use some support and this card offers that. Special summon a few Harpies off of Elegant Egotist, Hysteric Party, Summoner Monk, or Symbol of Heritage, then Normal Summon Harpist and use her first effect. Then Xyz using Harpist, detach her, and gain her effect at the end of the turn.
 
Advanced-3/5- Limited to Winged-Beasts, but useful with all the Special Summoning Winged-Beasts do.
Art-4/5

A new booster set means new cards to review. We start with Harpie Harpist.  Weighing in at 1700/600 for ATK/DEF and is a WIND/Winged Beast type. Harpist is an added boost to its type and attribute. When normal summoned, you can target 1 other Winged Beast monster you control and 1 face up monster your opponent controls, and Harpist sends those monsters back to the hands of their owners. Also, during the end phase of the turn Harpist was sent there, you can add 1 level 4 Winged Beast monster with 1500 ATK or less from your deck to your hand. In a Harpie deck, this is a welcome addition to that lineup, as it can search out several Harpie monsters, but outside of that, not really much help. If you are using this card, then you're using Harpies. 
 
Traditional: 1.5
Advanced: 2.5 (Harpie deck only)
