We’re continuing the Accel World previews with a new Kuroyukihime card, in addition to a new Silver Crow card. The two cards can work together, allowing you to play Silver Crow a level early.
Close relations, Kuroyukihime
Yellow / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

[AUTO] BOND/[Bullied Child, Haruyuki] [(1)]
[ACT] [Put 1 card from the top of your Deck to Clock, put 1 [Bullied Child, Haruyuki] from your Stage to the Waiting Room] Choose up to 1 [Challenging a Strong Enemy, Silver Crow] from your Hand and put it in any Border in the Stage you wish.
The latest Kuroyukihime card comes with a Bond to the 1/0 Vanilla Haruyuki from the TD, making it even easier to put a Level 1 on the Stage when the time comes. You also have the option to play a Level 2 early, if you send the bonded card from the Stage to the Waiting Room and take 1 damage. This should be fairly simple to achieve, since you’ll always have access to [Bullied Child, Haruyuki]. Just as always with these sorts of effects you need to be wary of taking too much damage.
Challenging a strong enemy, Silver Crow
Yellow / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 8000 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
[AUTO] ACCELERATION [Put 1 card from the top 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 +2500 and Soul +1 for that turn.
Once again we get another Acceleration effect, which is expected given the series title. As you might have noticed it’s also the card that [Close relations, Kuroyukihime] allows you to play early. Without its effect it’s a bit under par for a standalone 2/1, but it should still be bigger than most Level 1s, so that’ll be of little concern to you. However once your opponent reaches Level 2 you’ll need to start using the Acceleration effect in order to keep up with larger Level 2s. In fact Silver Crow could even match Level 3 cards, since he can reach 10500. You’ll just need to use this effect carefully so as not to kill yourself.
