Card of the Day : 6th of Jan

8 Jan

Sorry about the delay, but here’s the Card of the Day from Friday, been a bit busy with real life. There’s been a gap in these since last year, because Bushiroad was on their New Year’s break, so don’t worry about the missing week or so.

Today we have a Nichijou and a Dog Days card.

Cosplay Hakase

Blue / Level 1 / Cost 0 / 3000 / Soul 0 / No Trigger

«科学 Science» / «お菓子 Sweets»

[C] Support All your characters in front of this card gain power + 500.

[S] [(2) Put the top of your deck to clock] Choose one of your characters whose name includes [なのNano] and during this turn it gains «Weapon» and the following ability [[C] When this card attacks you can choose one of your opponent’s Back Stage characters as the defending character for this cards Front Attack]

Here we have an interesting support card from Nichijou. The first effect is standard, but the 2nd one is very useful.

Since it’s usually fairly rare to be able to get rid of Back Stage cards (especially level 1), getting the ability to attack them instead of the Front Stage cards can really mess with your opponents strategies. Gaining the «Weapon» attribute probably does little to help the cards within Nichijou, since I doubt there are any «Weapon» support cards in the set, however it is in fitting with the setting of the show, where Hakase would sometimes outfit Nano with weapons against her knowledge.

This card also has lots of potential uses outside of Neo-standard, due to the fact that [なのNano] is not restricted to just within Nichijou. The most notable of which are the many Nanoha cards from the several Nanoha series. This greatly expands the number of cards which can attack the Back Stage, and potentially allows you to give every card in a deck that ability. The other cards that benefit from this ability come from THE IDOLM@STER, Everyone’s Idol Yayoi and Everyone’s Big Sister Yayoi (みんなの means Everyone’s and contains the phrase なの). Everyone’s Big Sister Yayoi is a level 3 who can pay 5 to Stand again, allowing you to attack both the Front and Back Stage in a single turn, or take out the entire Back Stage in one go. This is incredibly costly, but you could probably build a fun deck around it.

Leonmitchelli Galette des Rois

Green / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«動物 Animal» /«王族 Royalty»

[A][(1)] When this card is placed on the Stage from the Hand, you can pay the cost. By doing so you choose one of your «動物 Animal» characters and they gain power +2000 during this turn.

[A][(2)] When this card is placed in the Waiting Room from the Stage, you can pay the cost. By doing so look at your deck and select up to one «動物 Animal» card, show it to your opponent and add it to your hand, shuffle your deck.

Here we have apparently the princess of the Galette Lion Army (I wasn’t aware armies had princesses?). This is a support card for the «動物 Animal» cards in Dog Days, which I believe make up the majority of the Green Cards.

The first ability, is a powerful one turn support ability, and I feel is much better than the Eclair card from the 28th of Dec, because it doesn’t cost you a card. Your «動物 Animal» cards probably won’t have much trouble overcoming threats, at least early in the game.

The 2nd ability let’s you search from any «動物 Animal» card in your deck, which should be most or a fair chunk of them if you’ve built it around the Green cards. The cost and timing for activation is pretty standard for this ability. Imagine this card would be a mainstay in Dog Days decks.
