Bushiroad has been continuing the triple bills this week. They’re also sticking to the pattern from Tuesday of a Rewrite Harvest Festa! Climax combo, and a new Accel World card.
Strongest spot, Shizuru
Green / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 8000 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
«風紀委員 Public Morals Committee Member» / «オカルト Occult»
[AUTO] When this card attacks, if [Promise Kept] is in the Climax Border, this card gains Power +3500 and the following ability for that turn. [[AUTO] When this card’s battle opponent is put to Reverse, you may put the top 1 card of your Deck to Stock.]
Green / Treasure Trigger
[CONT] All of your characters gain Power +1000, Soul+1.
Strongest spot, Shizuru has quite a powerful Climax combo, since not only do you get a powerful character, but you also gain a Stock. With the Climax and her effect Shizuru can reach 12500, more than enough to handle Level 2s and can handle most Level 3s, even if they have support from the Back Stage. If you’re successful in battle you’ll also gain a Stock, which makes up for the 1 Stock you paid to play her. Shizuru seems quite powerful when you pull off the combo, but just be careful that she only has 8000 attack under normal circumstances.
Carefree talk, Chiyuri
Green / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
«スポーツ Sports» / «ネット Net»
[CONT] ASSIST All of your characters in front of this card gain Power +500.
[AUTO] ACCELERATION [Put the top 1 card of your Deck to Clock] At the beginning of your Climax Phase, you may pay the cost. If you do so, choose 1 of your characters, and it gains Power +1500 for that turn.
Finally for Wednesday we had a new Chiyuri card. She’s not only a standard 500 in front boost, but she also has an additional Acceleration effect. This means that she can outshine cards which merely come with the assist effect. Her Acceleration allows you to give a character an extra +1500, meaning one of your characters could get as much as 2000 Power just from Chiyuri alone. This can push your weaker Level 0s up to take on opponent’s cards around the vanilla threshold, whilst the stronger cards should be able to defeat anything in their way. You can even take down weaker Level 1s without needing to play a Level 1 card yourself.
Greatest blessing, Kotori
Yellow / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 7000 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
[AUTO] When this card attacks, if “Intersecting feelings” is in the Climax Zone, look at the top 5 cards of your Deck and search for up to 1 «植物 Plant» or «オカルト Occult» Character, reveal it, and put it in your Hand. Put the other cards in your Waiting Room, and this gains +2000 Power for the turn.
[AUTO] CHANGE [(2) Put this in Waiting Room] At the beginning of your Encore Step, if this card is Rested, you may pay the cost. By doing so, choose a [Dear explorer, Kotori] in your Waiting Room and put it in the Slot this was in.
Yellow / 2 Soul Trigger
[AUTO] When this card is placed in the Climax Zone, put the top card of your Deck in your Stock, and all your Characters gain Soul +1 for the turn.
Kotori has a useful, but potentially risky Climax combo, as well as the ability to Change into the Kotori Level 3 from last week. With the Climax combo you’re unlikely to fail to add a card, since the majority of the new cards seem to be «オカルト Occult», whilst in a Kotori deck you’ll of course have lots of «植物 Plant» cards.
An added bonus of the effect is that you’ll also end up thinning your deck by 5 cards, but this is where the card gets risky. If a Climax sits in the first 3 cards (or however many attacks you have left) you might be quite pleased that it won’t get stuck in your Stock, but if it’s in the rest of the cards you’ll be a bit annoyed that you’ve just lost a cancel. Thinning can increase the chances of you cancelling on the next turn, but it could also increase the chances of you hitting a Climax when you attack.
If you use her Change ability you’ll be able to play the quite powerful Dear explorer, Kotori who can get you even more «植物 Plant» cards. In addition the fact you can potentially drop an 11000 3 Soul during Level 2 could be quite a scare for your opponent.
Angel mode, Niko
Red / Level 1 / Cost 1 / 6000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
[AUTO] ENCORE [Discard a Character card from your Hand to the Waiting Room]
[AUTO] ACCELERATION [Put the top 1 card of your Deck to Clock] At the beginning of your Climax Phase, you may pay the cost. If you do so, this card gains Power +1500 and “[AUTO] When the battle opponent of this becomes Reversed, you may put that card on top of the Deck” for the turn.
Finally we have a very powerful Niko card. She’s relatively weak for a 1/1 at only 6000 power, but Encore ensures she can stay on the Stage for a long time. However once she uses her Acceleration effect she becomes very deadly. Not only can she reach 7500, a high point for a Level 1, but she can send a defeated card to the top of the opponent’s deck. This means your next attack will be able to cause at least 1 damage, which is the likely amount of damage you will be causing at Level 1 anyway. It also allows you to get rid of other cards with Encore.
