Weiβ Schwarz Card of the Day: 16th of May

Today we see a pair of new Charles cards from Da Capo III, and I expect the rest of the week will be filled with even more cards from that series. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep up to date on things this time so I don’t end up having to do 26 in one go again…

After the First Date, Charles

[A] RECOLLECTION When this card is put from your Hand to the Stage, if your Memory has 2 or more cards, choose 1 of your other characters. It gains the following ability for that turn. [[A] When this card is put to Reverse, if the Level of the character this card is in battle with is equal to or less than this card’s Level, you may put that character to Reverse.]

Both of today’s cards have a Recollection effect, which fortunately shouldn’t be too hard to pull off in a Da Capo III deck, especially one based around Charles. We’ve already seen [Very Much in High Spirits! Charles], [“Ed’s Wish” Charles] and [New Years’ Eve Kiss] to name a few cards capable of helping you fill up your Memory.

This Charles card will be very useful at any point in the game provided you have at least one other character of the appropriate level. She turns any of your other characters into a Reverser, which could mean a painful time for your opponent. Usually Reversing cards come with a low attack due to their powerful effect, but with this card you can give it to characters with high power. Ideally you want to use it on a character with higher or equal power than your opponent’s card since it’ll force them into a tough decision. If your power is equal it renders your opponent’s counters useless, but you’ll of course both still lose your characters. If you have more power it leaves them with a tough choice between losing their character on Stage, or losing a Counter and their character on Stage in exchange for taking yours down. In situations where you can’t match the opponent’s power it at least offers an out to whatever threat you’re facing.

After using her effect this card is basically expendable, but taking out a threat is very much worth it.

Smile You Want to Protect, Charles

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

[A] When this card is Front Attacked, look at the top 1 card of your Deck, and put it to the top of the Deck or to the Waiting Room.
[A] RECOLLECTION When this card’s battle opponent is put to Reverse, if your Memory has 3 or more cards, you may put that character to the top of the Deck.

This is a very powerful Charles card for the end of the game. Instead of coming with a healing ability this card allows you to check the top of your deck when you get attacked, which means you can increase your chances of cancelling damage and staying in the game longer. Her second effect allows you to increase the amount of damage you can cause to your opponent by sending a defeated character back to the top of their deck, which also prevents them from Encoring it. If she’s the last card to attack it can also force the opponent to redraw a potentially useless card.
