Welcome back to the Card of the Days after a 1 day break. Today we’re going to be covering 5 cards, because today (Friday) had a special 3 card preview instead of 2, featuring the twins Ami and Mami.
Support at any place! Kotori
Yellow / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 2500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
[CONT] If you have 1 or less other characters, this card gains Power +1500.
This Kotori is a very simple beatstick. If you have a relatively empty field she’ll reach 4000 power, possibly 4500 if the one extra card is a support card. She can be deadly early game for killing the opponent’s cards, since if you’re both only playing down one attacker she can easily kills most things she faces, without major drawbacks for you. The disadvantage for her is of course the fact that if the opponent plays a Character with higher than 4500 you’ll really struggle to kill them with Kotori, and if you play extra cards to the stage she ends up becoming sub standard in terms of power.
If the number of cards on the Stage in general remains low then Kotori will be good, but if you end up with more she’ll be not so useful. Although then again you could hope that by playing her the opponent is forced to commit extra cards to the stage to try and draw out more cards from you and weaken Kotori. If you don’t it’s pretty easy to start gaining advantage over the opponent.
Becoming reliable!? Producer
Red / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 2000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
«音楽 Music» / «メガネ Glasses»
[ACT] [Put this card to Rest] Choose 1 of your «音楽 Music» characters, and it gains Power +500 for that turn.
[ACT] CONCENTRATE [(1)] Flip over the top 4 cards of your Deck and put them to the Waiting Room. For every 1 Climax card amongst those cards, perform the following action. [Choose 1 «音楽 Music» character from your Waiting Room and return it to Hand, and choose 1 card from your Hand and put it to the Waiting Room.]
The Producer is quite a powerful card since he combines a useful concentrate ability with a support effect. The support effect is weaker than the normal +500 in front type of cards, but at least it allows him to do something other than just use his 2nd effect. His concentrate effect has 3 uses, firstly like all of these effects it can be used to thin the deck, even when you don’t get the rest of the effect to work. Secondly it can be used to get useful «音楽 Music» characters back from the Waiting Room, and finally he can be used to cycle your hand, dumping useless cards or Change/Bond targets for later. A really nice thing about him is that you can use this effect repeatedly in a single turn, so you could either drastically thin your deck, or possibly gather all the cards you need at that point in time.
Full throttle idol! Ami
Green / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 8500 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
«音楽 Music» / «双子 Twins»
[CONT] All of your other characters gain the following ability. [[CONT] This card cannot Side Attack.]
[ACT] [Put 1 of your «音楽 Music» characters to Rest] This card gains Power +1000 for that turn.
Ami can easily become very powerful very cheaply, with the potential for a 4000 boost just from her own effect (if you rest all your other characters). It could go higher if you replace them with new characters and rest those, but you’d have to be really desperate for that. The downside of course is that none of your Characters can Side Attack. If you’ve got other powerful cards on Stage like Ami you won’t need to worry about this too much, but when you’re outmatched by the opponent you will suffer because of this.
Full power idol! Mami
Yellow / Level 1 / Cost 1 / 6000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
«音楽 Music» / «双子 Twins»
[CONT] RECOLLECTION During your turn, if [Costume Change] is in your Memory, this card gains Power +2000.
[AUTO] ENCORE [Put 1 Character card from Hand to the Waiting Room]
Mami can be very powerful for a Level 1 card, if you can pull off her Recollection effect. If you can she’ll be a 1/1 8000 with Encore putting her well above the power curve for most other Level 1 cards. If you can’t pull the effect off she’ll lage behind normal 1/1 Encore cards in power though. At full strength it will be very difficult to shift Mami out of the way until your opponent hits Level 2. The issue with this card is of course how easy it is to get Costume Change in memory. I assume it’s some kind of Event card that sends itself to Memory after use, which would make this easy to set up, assuming you draw both cards.
Demon pranksters! Ami & Mami
Yellow / Level 1 / Cost 0 / 4500 / 1 Soul / No trigger
«音楽 Music» / «双子 Twins»
[AUTO] (2) When this card is played from your Hand to your Stage, you may pay the cost. If you do so, choose 1 Level 1 or below Character from your Waiting Room with “Ami” or “Mami” in it’s name and play into any Border on your Back Stage. That card gains Power +2000 until the end of the turn. Afterwards, at the end of the turn, put that Character in the Waiting Room.
The final card for this week features both Ami and Mami, and it supports all your other low Level Ami and Mami cards. For a cost of 2 Stock you can bring another low Level Ami or Mami back with a 2000 power boost, enabling them to deal with threats from the opponent. Unfortunately though the Character will return to the Waiting Room at the end of the turn, meaning it’s really only a 1 shot play, unless you bring back something with Encore. For example Full power idol! Mami could be deadly with this card since she could have 10000 power and then survive due to her Encore. The fact the card goes Back Stage at first really doesn’t matter because you can simply rearrange the Stage before and after to accommodate for this.
This is a bit more costly than simply playing something from your hand, but it does give you much wider options for what to play.
