This will be my last card of the day and likely last article for a while, since I’m off to Japan for just over 2 weeks from tomorrow. As such it’s unlikely I’ll be writing any new articles from out there, but we’ll have to wait and see. This week’s Weiβ Schwarz cards appears to be going for 3 a day, possibly because lots of new products are coming out soon. This time in addition to new Shana and Angel Beats cards we get the first preview for Accel World.
God of Creation, ‘Snake of the Festival’
Blue / Level 2 / Cost 2 / 10000 / 2 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
«炎 Flame» / «蛇 Snake»
[CONT] Unless you have [“Priestess” Hecate], [“General” Sydonay], and [“Strategist” Bel Peol] in play, you cannot play this card from your Hand.
[CONT] All your other «炎 Flame» Characters gain Power +1000.
First up with have quite a powerful card in the form of the God of Creation. Not only does he come with stats matching that of a Level 3 card, but he also makes all your other «炎 Flame» characters even more powerful with a +1000 boost. This means you can play him alongside supporting card to allow for at least 3 lots of power boosts, meaning your other two Front Stage characters can be pretty powerful.
To balance this out though he comes with a restriction of playing him, which means you must already control 3 specific other characters before you can play him from your Hand. Currently we don’t know what all these cards do, or what their requirements are, so it’ll be a bit hard to judge how hard this is to pull off. Unless they aid in playing each other this could be quite hard to pull off. You could alternatively use the Climax combo of [“Unparalled in Battle” Beauty Wilhelmina] to play him instead.
Yellow / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 5000 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
«死 Death» / «生徒会 Student Council»
[CONT] ASSIST All of your Characters in front of this card gain Power +X. X is equal to 500 multiplied by that Character’s Level.
[AUTO] When this card is put from your hand to the Stage, choose 1 of your other Characters with «死 Death», during this turn, that card gains Power +1000.
Continuing with the Angel Beats! Vol 2 reveal we get a new Kanade card, which finally gives the deck a Level support card. This gives the deck a late game power boost it was lacking a bit in before and potentially opens up new builds for the deck. On top of this she also gives one «死 Death» an extra 1000 on the turn you play her, meaning a card could potentially receive +2500 from Kanade alone on that turn. I can certainly see this being useful for Angel Beats! decks.
Miraculous survival, Kuroyukihime
Yellow / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 4000 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
«生徒会 Student Council» /«アバター Avatar»
[CONT] ASSIST All of your Characters in front of this gain Power +1000.
[ACT] [(1) Rest this card] Choose 1 of your Opponent’s Level 0 or lower Character and return it to the hand.
Finally we have our first Accel World card in the form of Kuroyukihime. Not only is she a support card, but she can also counter other support cards. Firstly she gives +1000 to the cards in front. As I’ve previously mentioned this is as good as a Level support card at Level 2, outperforms it for lower level cards, but lags behind for higher level cards. This power boost is useful if the deck doesn’t have many Level 3 cards, and as such isn’t so worried about the loss of 500 power.
The 2nd effect might not seem like much, because you should be able to kill Level 0 cards fairly easily by the point you reach Level 2, however you need to realise it’s for bouncing Back Stage cards, not Front Stage cards. Normally it can be very tough to get rid of Back Stage cards and this allows you to avoid them for at least 1 turn. Unfortunately it can’t actually get rid of those Level 0 cards, so you’ll probably have to deal with them again on the following turn. However sometimes the 500 reduction by taking out a support could be all you need to turn the tide of the game.
