Blackwings are an aggressive Synchro beatdown deck that loves going second, able to pump out multiple Synchro monsters in a single turn and OTK. Black Whirlwind is the main facilitator and searches for additional Blackwing monsters that can be special summoned. Blackwing - Simoon the Poison Wind is a Whirlwind searcher and extra normal summon wrapped together that can produce 2 Synchro monsters just by itself. Harpies’ Hunting Ground is a common skill of choice, increasing the range of monsters accessible from Whirlwind and allowing for Turn 1 Ancient Fairy Dragon plays into Necrovalley or Summon Breaker. Finally, because traps like Floodgate Trap Hole and Treacherous Trap Hole are problematic for Synchro summoning, some kind of backrow removal (Cosmic Cyclone, Hey, Trunade!, etc.) is typically standard in the deck.
