TCG Rulings

  • The ATK of the targeted monster is halved for as long as that monster remains face-up on the field.[1]
  • If you target a monster with “Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind” that was already targeted before, its ATK will be one-quarter. Then one-eighth if you target it again after that.[1]
  • The ATK of the targeted monster can be increase/decreased from its new level.[1]
  • If a monster equipped with “United We Stand” has its ATK halved, the new ATK remains and is unchanged by “United We Stand”. (So if the number of monsters on the field changes, the ATK remains the same.[1]

  • The halved ATK/DEF lasts as long as the target monster remains face-up on the field.[9]
  • "Black Whirlwind" can only add to your hand a monster with less ATK than the ATK of the Normal Summoned monster. It cannot add a monster with equal ATK.
