A new mechanical friend appears for… LP and Normal Summon support?



CHIM-JP023 機巧嘴-八咫御先 Kikoushi – Yatanomisaki (Mechanical Bird Yata no Misaki)
Level 5 LIGHT Machine Effect Monster
ATK 2050
DEF 2050
You can only use the (2) and (3) effects of this card’s name once per turn each.
(1) You can Special Summon this card (from your hand) by Tributing 1 Normal Summoned/Set monster.
(2) During your Main Phase, if this card was Normal or Special Summoned this turn, you can: Immediately after this effect resolves, Normal Summon 1 monster, but you cannot Special Summon monsters for the rest of this turn, except monsters with the same original Type as the Summoned monster.
(3) If this card Special Summoned by its own effect is Tributed: Gain 2050 LP.

Note: This card seems to be the same ‘series’ or ‘theme’ as Murakumo Orochi, so when we know that card’s TCG name, we should be able to help with this card’s name as well.

Note: Kikoushi sounds like “Young Noble” “Young Man of Noble Birth”. So they used the Kanji for Beak, but that’s clearly to force a joke, we’re going to be sensible and go with bird.

Note: Yatanomisaki seems to be implying its name is referencing “Yatagarasu” as a “Misaki”, i.e. a messenger of the Gods.
