Card of the Day: 15th of March

Today we’re back to Guilty Crown, and we have two Inori cards that are linked by Change.

Shuu’s Partner, Inori

Red / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 6500 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger

«音楽 Music» / «葬儀社 Funeral Parlour»

[A] CHANGE [(2) Put 1 card from your Hand to the Waiting Room, put this card to the Waiting Room] At the beginning of your Climax Phase, you may pay the cost. If you do so, choose 1 [Yuzuriha Inori] from your Waiting Room and put it in the Border this card was in.
[S] [Put this card to Rest] Choose 1 of your characters. It gains Power +1500 for that turn.

Both of today’s Inori cards are pretty good, especially if you can pull off all their abilities in one turn. This Inori card has Change, allowing you to upgrade to a Level 3 whilst still at Level 2. The overall cost for doing the change is 3 Stock (1 for this card, 2 for the change) and 2 cards (This and a card from your hand), but you get Yuzuriha Inori from the Waiting Room, so you can a card at the end. This means you pay an extra 1 Stock and an extra card from your Hand in order to play a card a level early, which is worth it, especially with the card you get access to. If the next card we’re looking at today pulls off its Climax ability you’ll make up for the extra discard anyway.

Her other ability gives a +1500 boost by Resting her, which is no problem, since you’ll just be changing this card anyway before you get to battle. This means you can give +1500, then change up to an even more powerful card without giving up your abilities to attack. Since you’ll end up with at least a 10000 attack Level 3, and another card boosted by 1500 you can expect to defeat 2 of your opponent’s cards in that turn.

Yuzuriha Inori

Red / Level 3 / Cost 2 / 10000 / 2 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger

[A] When this card is put from your Hand to the Stage or put by [CHANGE] to the Stage, you may put the top 1 card of your Clock to the Waiting Room.
[A] [Put 1 card from your Hand to the Waiting Room] When this card attacks, if [Euterpe] is in the Climax Zone, you may pay the cost. If you do so, choose up to 2 character cards from your Waiting Room and return them to your Hand, and this card gains Power +1000 for that turn.

As expected of a Level 3 this Inori comes with 10000 attack and heal, but she also has Climax synergy. The Climax hasn’t yet been revealed, but depending on what effect it has, it could make this card even better. When the right Climax is in play you can discard a card from your hand, and get back any two characters, netting you a +1, as well as giving her a 1000 attack boost. Due to the timing of the Change card it means you can boost another card, change into this card, heal, play your Climax, and fetch whatever characters you need for the next turn, before going into battle.

This means you’ll have a strong turn when you play these cards, and can follow it up with another strong turn thanks to the cards you’ll have fetched back. Even if you don’t pull off the Change, you can still play this card once you reach Level 3 and still use her abilities.

Both of these cards allow a Guilty Crown deck to have a very strong late game.
