Blue Flame Swordsman and Harpie Lady Phoenix Formation Revealed!

The upcoming Legendary Collection 4 has three World Premiere cards in it - Blue Flame Swordsman, Card of Last Will, and Harpie Lady Phoenix Formation. Let's take a look at the two who were fully revealed today!

 Fire / 4 / Warrior / 1800 / 1600
Once per turn, during either player's Battle Phase: You can target 1 other Warrior-Type monster you control; this card loses exactly 600 ATK, and if it does, that monster gains 600 ATK. When this card you control is destroyed by your opponent's card (either by battle or by card effect) and sent to your Graveyard: You can banish this card from your Graveyard, then target 1 FIRE Warrior-Type monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that target.

It's a little bit better than the anime version since it can revive any Fire Warrior and not just Flame Swordsman, but also a little worse since it can only pass along 600 ATK at a time. It looks like a nice new plaything for Battlin' Boxers, but I'm not sure what else it might be useful for. Let's check out Phoenix Formation.

Normal Spell
If you control 3 or more "Harpie Lady" and/or "Harpie Lady Sisters": Target as many monsters your opponent controls as possible, but not more than the total number of "Harpie Lady" and "Harpie Lady Sisters" you control; destroy those targets, and if you do, inflict damage to your opponent equal to the highest original ATK among those destroyed monsters (your choice, if tied). You cannot Special Summon monsters from the Main Deck or Extra Deck, nor conduct your Battle Phase, during the turn you activate this card.

This is obviously watered down quite a bit compared to the anime effect, and for good reason. It's a very tough card to use now though - notice the fact that you can't summon from the Main Deck in the same turn you play this card. So you have to have three Harpies out, and Summoner Monk and Elegant Egotist can't even pitch in on the same turn. Brutal.

What do you guys think of these two cards? Leave a comment below and share your thoughts. Later!
