Card of the day: 1st of May

1 May

We start off May with even more Zero no Tsukaima F cards in the form of Level 0 Tiffania and Louise cards.

Fairy of the forest, Tiffania

Green / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 2000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«魔法 Magic» / «虚無 Void»

[A] [(1) Discard 1 card to the Waiting Room] When this card is placed from your Hand to the Stage, you may pay the cost. If you do, search your Deck for up to 1 «魔法 Magic» Character, reveal it, and put it in your Hand. Shuffle your Deck afterwards.

Tiffania is a useful searcher card allowing you to fetch cards you need from your deck. If you use Saito not everything will be «魔法 Magic», but the vast majority of things in this set are. Since you lose a card in the process the card’s effect will be break even, but you can use this to ditch things like useless cards, Climaxes or Change targets. Since she’s a character card she can then attack to make up the stock you’ve just paid. Since she’s only a rather weedy 2000 attack card though she’ll likely not survive until the following turn. If possible you’ll want to ram her into the Reversing cards and save your better cards for bigger threats.

Can’t be truthful, Louise

Red / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 1500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«魔法 Magic» / «虚無 Void»

[A] [Put 1 Marker under this card to the Waiting Room] When this card attacks, you may pay the cost. If you do so, choose an Opponent’s Level 0 or below Character in Front Stage and put it in the Waiting Room.
[S] [Rest this card] If there are no Markers under this card, put the top 1 card of your Deck under this as a Marker.

This Louise card has an interesting form of Character removal since she’s reusable, has no Stock cost and you’re in control of who you take down. Of course she comes with drawbacks though. Firstly it takes two turns to set this up, since you must Rest her to gain a marker. This also means you’ll need to place her Back Stage otherwise she’ll get defeated before you can use her effect. This could also force you to hold off on playing a support card. The card is also only restricted to Level 0 meaning that if you don’t draw her very early on in the game you’ll possibly miss out on a chance to even use her effect. Since she’ll stick around after using her effect, unlike the normal Reversing cards, she can also block a little bit of damage during the following turn. If you can set her up this card can be helpful, but the normal Reversing cards, or just cards with massive attack scores are probably easier to use.
