Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Cyber Slash Harpie Lady

[Winged Beast / Synchro / Effect]

ATK/2,600 DEF/1,400

1 Tuner + 1+ non-Tuner monsters
For this card’s Synchro Summon, you can treat 1 “Harpie” monster you control as a Tuner. This card’s name becomes “Harpie Lady” while on the field or in the GY. When a Spell/Trap Card or effect is activated (except during the Damage Step) (Quick Effect): You can target 1 monster your opponent controls or 1 “Harpie” monster you control; return it to the hand. You can only use this effect of “Cyber Slash Harpie Lady” once per turn.

Harpie Lady is one of the classic archetypes from Yu-Gi-Oh! Mai Valentine’s signature monsters have evolved through the years. The newest form of Harpie Lady is Cyber Slash Harpie Lady! Her name is based on Harpie Lady’s attack, the Cyber Slash!

First Effect: Special Summon Cyber Slash Harpie Lady

Cyber Slash Harpie Lady is a unique effect to Synchro summon her. For her Synchro Summon, you may treat a Harpie monster under your control as a Tuner. This effect adds consistency and efficiency to play her from the Extra Deck.

Two copies of Harpie Lady may Synchro Summon Cyber Slash Harpie Lady. You can easily set up this Synchro Summon. You only need one copy of Harpie Lady on the field and Elegant Egotist for special summoning the second copy of Harpie Lady. My steps for this combo are listed below.

Special Summon Cyber Slash Harpie Lady
  1. Summon Harpie Lady
  2. Play Elegant Egotist
  3. Special summon Harpie Lady from the deck with the effect of Elegant Egotist.
  4. Synchro Summon Cyber Slash Harpie Lady with the two copies of Harpie Lady as material.
Second Effect:

Cyber Slash Harpie Lady’s name changes to Harpie Lady when she is on the field or in the graveyard. This effect creates synergy with cards in the archetype. Your deck maintains consistency with your monsters, Spells, and Traps.

For example, you may play Elegant Egotist with Cyber Slash Harpie Lady on the field. Then, special summon a Harpie Lady from your deck. These cards have a nice combo for special summoning a monster to your field.

Third Effect:

Finally, Cyber Slash Harpie Lady’s third effect counters your opponent’s strategy. She returns one of the opponent’s monsters or one of your Harpie monsters to the hand when an opponent activates a Trap or Spell. An opponent loses a monster on the field if he or she plays a Trap of Spell.

Play these cards with Cyber Slash Harpie Lady!
  • Elegant Egotist

Card Rating:

Overall, Cyber Slash Harpie Lady is a strong Synchro Monster for Harpies. She is an easy card to summon, due to her first effect. All of her effects complements the deck’s strategy to control the field. Cyber Slash Harpie Lady counters the opponent’s strategy as soon as he or she activates a Spell or Trap. I recommend playing three copies of Cyber Slash Harpie Lady in a Harpie deck.

Card Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)
