For this week’s 3rd card of the day we’ve finally broken out of the Climax combo period, instead we’re seeing new cards for both Zero no Tsukaima F and Symphogear.
Ideal room, Louise
Red / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 2000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
«魔法 Magic» / «虚無 Void»
[C] If your Stock has 2 or less cards, this card gains the following ability. [[A] When this card is put to Reverse, if this card’s battle opponent is Cost 0 or below, you may put that character to Reverse.
For the second time we’ve got a new card which functions best when your stock is low, this means it’s generally best on the first 2 turns or if you find a way to keep your own stock low. This Louise might look like one of your usual suicide cards, however she takes out Cost 0 cards, rather than Level 0 cards. This means that she can take down a large number of Level 1 cards as well, should the situation ever arise. Most of the time she’ll just be acting as a Level 0 reverser though, which still makes her a good card. This Louise also has slightly more attack than the normal Level 0 reversing cards, which tend to sit at 1000, this makes it slightly harder for the opponent to clear it out with weaker disposable cards.
Future best friend, Hibiki
Yellow / Level 1 / Cost 0 / 4500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
[A] [(1) Put the top card of your Deck to Clock] When this card is put from the Stage to the Waiting Room, you may pay the cost. If you do so, search your Deck for up to 1 «音楽 Music» character, show it to your opponent and add it to your Hand. Shuffle that Deck.
With this card we get a searcher for the Symphogear deck, but could also find use in Standard «音楽 Music» decks. Since I assume everything in the Symphogear deck is «音楽 Music», this means you’ll be able to search for absolutely anything you need. This could either be a card you need for the current situation, or a card you need later, possibly for something like a Climax combo. One problem with searches like this is that you need to give up a card (although you do break even overall), and generally speaking will not be playing the card on the turn you search it. If you wanted to use the searched card you’d have to replace Hibiki manually rather than waiting for her to get defeated in battle. I think this card could be very useful in the Symphogear deck, but you don’t tend to see that many search cards used for some reason.
