Windwitch – Glass Bell

 

I don’t understand how Windwitch – Glass Bell’s name fits with the rest of the Windwitches, which is winter-themed. Regardless, this monster is nearly as exceptional as her sisters, and should be included in the engine. I’ve seen decks that don’t run her alongside Ice Bell and Snow Bell, but I think that’s a mistake.

 

Obviously, when it comes to Windwitches, you want to draw Ice Bell, which gets the entire deck into hyperdrive. But if you don’t have her, Glass Bell can retrieve her, setting up your hand nicely. I won’t avoid the obvious caveats in her effect that make her less appealing than Ice and Snow, but I also won’t knock her for abilities that are very good. She’s a level 4 tuner monster that searches the deck when summoned in any way. How can that be bad? Especially in an environment rich with wind type monsters? Even if you could find a way to rate Ice and Snow far above Glass Bell, there shouldn’t be any reasonable argument for not at least teching her. The combo to get an easy Crystal Wing doesn’t exist without her. And let’s not forget that she only prevents non-wind special summons if she uses her effect and only for that turn. That’s a very important distinction from monsters that prevent no matter what. In decks like Invoked that make good use of Call of the Haunted, Glass Bell is a perfect target much of the time.

 

As Windwitches go, so does Glass Bell. Ice Bell could one day get restricted, but Snow Bell is easily used outside of Windwitch decks. Since Glass Bell searches for Snow, I believe Glass Bell has the same good potential as both Ice and Snow. It’s a good card, folks.

 

Advanced: 4/5

Future Potential: 4/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Windwitch - Glass Bell completes the trio of Windwitch monsters this week.
 
The searcher of the Windwitch archetype, Glass Bell searches any Windwitch except itself. With a restriction of only WIND monsters being Special Summoned for the rest of the turn after her Normal or Special Summon, that won't be too much of a downside to Glass Bell. The aggressive combo of Ice Bell to Special Glass Bell from the deck, which then gets Snow Bell, who can then Special Summon itself, giving you two Tuners on the field without spending your Normal Summon sets you up pretty well for a big play. Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon is the standard play for this, and can be made without spending the Normal Summon. I don't know about you, but that's a huge turn one off of just one monster (Ice Bell). Even if you don't start with Ice Bell, if you have Snow Bell in the hand you just search Ice Bell out with Glass Bell. Combined with Speedroids, this deck can Special Summon at will and never slow down. Every monster is capable of being Special Summoned with Flying Kamakiri #1, and they inherit many of the Majespecter support cards.
 
Advanced-4/5
Art-4/5- Nice art and creative touch with the broom being a bell
 
Until Next Time
