Weiβ Schwarz Card of the Day: 4th of June

Today we get a pair of cards which become more powerful when played together and could become quite dangerous if many copies are played at the same time.

Owner of Symphogear, Kanade

Red / Level 1 / Cost 1 / 6500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«音楽 Music» / «武器 Weapon»

[C] For every 1 of your other [Tsubasa from that day], this card gains Power +500 and [[A] ENCORE [Put 1 Character card from your Hand to the Waiting Room]].

Tsubasa from that day

Blue / Level 1 / Cost 1 / 5000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«音楽 Music» / «武器 Weapon»

[C] During your opponent’s turn, for every 1 of your other [Owner of Symphogear, Kanade], this card gains Power +2000.

Since these two cards are designed to be used together it’s only worth looking at them both together. When on their own they both fall at 500 below the standard for their level and cost, but when together they can become very powerful. Kanade it more of an offensive card whilst Tsubasa is more of a defensive card. At their absolute limits (1 of one, 4 of the other) Tsubasa can be a 13000 on the defense, whilst Kanade could be an 8500 1 cost with Encore. In both of these situations this is quite good, but highly unlikely to ever happen. Even if it could happen you’d probably be better served just having your regular support cards back stage instead.

The general situation you’ll expect to see is having one of both. This means Kanade will be a 7000 with Encore, meaning she just outdoes normal 1/1 vanillas due to the Encore, whilst Tsubasa will be a 7000 on the defensive, which is very good for a cost 0. Another potentially common scenario is to have 2 of one, and 1 of the other, filling your Front Stage. If you have 2 Kanade and 1 Tsubasa, then you’d have a pair of 7000 Encore on the offense plus a 5000, whilst on the defensive you’d keep the pair and be aided by a 9000. This means that not only will you have a powerful offense at Level 1, but you can also weather just about any attack. If you switched it to 2 Tsubasa and 1 Kanade it would mean Kanade hits 7500, enough to overcome the 1/1 vanillas, whilst both Tsubasa are 7000 on the defense. I think 2 Kanade and 1 Tsubasa would serve you slightly better because you have more offensive power.

The issue of course with all this is that unless you draw the pairs the cards will be lackluster on their own. You also need to consider the fact the colours are different, meaning sometimes you might not be able to play both of them at the start of Level 1. which could be very problematic.
