In a surprise move Bushiroad have posted cards over the weekend, so there are 4 new Da Capo III cards to look at.
Spoiled Mode, Aoi
Blue / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 3000 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
«新聞 Newspaper» / «ウェイトレス Waitress»
[C] All of your other «メイド Maid» or «ウェイトレス Waitress» characters gains Power +1000.
[A] When [Full of Dreams] is put into your Climax Zone, put 2 cards from the top of your deck to the waiting room. If there is a Climax amongst those cards, put the top card from your Clock to your Waiting Room.
Full of Dreams
Blue / Book Trigger
[C] All your characters gain Power +1000 and Soul +1.
Up first we have a pair of Aoi cards for a Climax Combo. The Climax itself is the standard style of Book trigger, which personally I like just a bit below the Door trigger. The actual Aoi card is a bit limited in its uses though and I think you’re unlikely to get the Climax effect to work properly very often. The attributes she helps should mean all your other Aoi cards will get a power up, and could be helpful in a Maid deck. However I’m not sure how many non-Aoi cards in the set have Waitress, or if there are many in set Maids at all for that matter. The fact it boosts all other characters gives it a wider range of boosts than the Level support cards, however it can’t match them on pure power.
The Climax effect is basically a Concentration effect, just without the name. If you somehow pull the combo off then hit another Climax or two you’ll get to heal 1 damage. Whilst healing is always nice I think losing at least 2 Climaxes in the process is too high a cost. Admittedly it’s better the 2nd one is in your Waiting Room than the Stock, but it could be something with a useful trigger. Additionally I think it’s rather unlikely this effect will succeed. If it doesn’t I suppose at least your deck is thinner.
Feelings of “love”, Ricca
Red / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 1000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
«新聞 Newspaper» / «生徒会 Student Council»
[A][(1) Put this card to Memory] When this card is front attacked, you may pay the cost. If you do so, choose 1 [Public Newspaper Club’s President. Ricca] from your hand, put that card in this card’s slot as a defending character.
Without knowing the card this works with it’s impossible to judge properly how good this is. I would assume it’s a bigger card, possibly a Level 1, but that’s just a guess. Getting cards into Memory is useful for the next card though.
Blue / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 5500 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
«魔法 Magic» / «お菓子 Sweets»
[C] All your other characters gain the ability [[C] RECOLLECTION If the number of cards in your Memory is X or more, this card gains Power + 1000. X is equal to this character’s level.]
This is an interesting ability if you play enough cards that end up in Memory. It will basically power up all your other characters by 1000 if you manage to get 3 cards into Memory, although of course you need less for lower level cards. The fact it’s not attribute restricted means it can fit into any kind of deck, unlike the Aoi card earlier which only works in certain decks. It might for example find a place in Memory based decks in Standard, although I imagine they already have plenty of options. One unfortunate point about this card is that I would assume the ability wouldn’t stack if you played 2 copies, since they’d just give all your cards the same ability twice, meaning only a +1000 boost. I could be wrong on this though.
