Sorry about being late with these, but I’m going to be doing the card of the day for the past 3 days in one. Fortunately for me it’s a trio of cards that all work together, the main characters from Nichijou.
Yellow / Level 1 / Cost 0 / 4500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
[C] If there is your other [相生 祐子Aioi Yuuko] on your stage, this card gains power + 2000.
For the first of the trio we have Mio. This card effect is very simple, but powerful. If the next card in the list [相生 祐子Aioi Yuuko] is on the stage it becomes a 6500 attack cost 0 card. This is very strong for a cost 0. A cost 1 level 1 has only 500 attack more, and this beats out level 1 experience cards which only reach 6000 attack. Nichijou decks based on the school girls will have a powerful beatstick at level 0. Of course there might be consistency issues with trying to gather both cards at the same time.
Yellow / Level 1 / Cost 1 / 6000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
[A] When this card’s battle opponent is reversed, if there is your other [水上 麻衣Minakami Mai] on the stage, you choose one of your other characters and give them soul +1 during this turn.
[A] Encore [put one of your character cards from your hand to waiting room]
The second of the trio is Yuuko. Here we have a quite resilient level 1 that can help cause extra damage to the opponent. It’s relatively weak for a cost 1 card at 6000 attack, however Encore makes up for this, making it quite hard to get rid of. If the final card of the trio [水上 麻衣Minakami Mai] is around you can increase the damage you can cause. Because of how the trio works together this would often be the Mio card, which would make her a 6500 2 Soul card, without even counting the boost from the final card in the trio.
Yellow / Level 1 / Cost 0 / 2500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

[C] When there is your other [長野原 みお Naganohara Mio] on your stage, this card gains following ability. [[S] [Rest this card] You choose one of your characters and give it power +1500 and level +1 during this turn.]
[C] Support Gives power +500 to all your characters in front of this card.
Finally we come to Mai, the support card of the trio. Her second ability is the standard support ability that you would expect from a level 0, so seeing it on a level 1 is a bit disappointing. However she is cost free, and her 1st ability more than makes up for it. When you have [長野原 みお Naganohara Mio] you can give a large attack boost and avoid reversing cards like [8th Angel] by increasing their level.
If you manage to gather all three of the trio at the same time you can have a very powerful level 1 game. For a grand total of 1 cost you will have at least a 7000 attack cost 0 and a 6500 attack Encore. Depending on who you give the +1500 to you can reach up to 8500 which should be more than enough for most level 1 cards, barring counter cards. You would probably want to give the boost to Yuuko, so Mio can gain the extra Soul though. With a second Mai this can become even more devastating. If you can successfully gather all of these cards at level 1 it will prove quite the formidable force. We’ll just have to wait and see if they get any counters to protect it during the opponents turn.
