Weiβ Schwarz Cards of the Day: 26th – 29th of November

With Robotics;Notes now released (and last Friday’s preview merely repeats), it’s time to start looking at the new Milky Holmes 2 and Sword Art Online cards due out soon.

Drifting on a float, Sheryl

Yellow / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«探偵 Detective» / «カメラ Camera»

[CONT] ASSIST All of your characters in front of this card gain Power +500.
[ACT] [Put 2 of your «探偵 Detective» characters to Rest] Choose 1 card in your Level and 1 card in your Waiting Room, and switch them.

Up first we have a Sheryl support card, which can also help power up several of the other cards in the preview. The first effect is the standard +500 in front, but it’s her second effect that makes her stand out. By resting two «探偵 Detective» characters, which is basically anything in your deck, you get to switch a card in your Level with one from your Waiting Room.

This has several possible uses. Firstly if you’re playing an Experience deck, it makes it much easier to fulfill the requirements your cards need. Secondly it could be used to change the colour in your Level, allowing you to play different cards if you’ve yet to get any of that colour into your Level / Clock. This will probably rarely happen though. The third use is to work alongside some of the new cards from the Milky Holmes 2 set. They have an effect that activates when a card is put in your Level, something this card can do every turn, as oppossed to only when you Level up.

Summer dress, Cordelia

Blue / Level 1 / Cost 0 / 4500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«探偵 Detective» / «スポーツ Sports»

[CONT] EXPERIENCE If the sum of the Levels of the cards in your Level is 2 or more, this card gains Power +1000.
[AUTO] This ability can activate up to 1 time in 1 turn. When a card is put in your Level, this card gains Power +1500.

Our first new Cordelia card has both Experience, and an effect that works with the Sheryl support card. Her experience effect turns her into a 1/0 Vanilla, meaning that even if you never get her second effect to work, she’ll still be fairly useful. However she’ll shine when combined with the above Sheryl. When a card is put in your Level she will hit 7000, 7500 if in front of Sheryl. This means she can start defeating Cost 1 cards, without costing you anything at all. She will of course be weaker on the defense though, but that’s to be expected.

Time of confrontation, Sheryl

Red / Level 1 / Cost 1 / 6000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«探偵 Detective» / «カメラ Camera»

[AUTO] This ability can activate up to 1 time in 1 turn. When a card is put to your Level, this card gains Power +1500 for that turn.
[AUTO] [(1)] When this card attacks, if [Revival of Toys] is in the Climax Border, you may pay the cost. If you do so, choose 1 of your opponent’s Level 1 or below character in the Center Stage, put it to the Waiting Room, and this card gains Power +2000 for that turn.

Our next Sheryl card has a Climax combo, in addition to working with the above support card. With [Drifting on a float, Sheryl] around she can reach 7500-8500 without too much of a problem, meaning she can defeat other 1/1s, but would probably fall short of most Level 2 cards. However when defending she’s going to be fairly weak for a 1/1, only coming in at 6000, barely above a 1/0 vanilla.

She has a powerful Climax combo though, since it would allow you to get rid of an opponent’s Level 1 or below Character, and gives herself a +2000 boost. When combined with her first effect, and the Climax itself, it’s quite likely she’ll be able to defeat an extra Character in battle. This means you’ll hopefully be able to get rid of two of your opponent’s cards in exchange for your Climax card. Since she can only get rid of Level 1s though, her removal effect will become less useful as the game goes on.

Start of the battle, Asuna

Yellow / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 3000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«アバター Avatar» / «武器 Weapon»

The first Sword Art Online card showed in the previews is just a Vanilla, so there’s nothing much to say about this Asuna.

Japanese clothes, Elly

Blue / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«探偵 Detective» / «本 Book»

[AUTO] BOND/[Japanese clothes, Cordelia] [Put the top 1 card of your Deck to Clock]
[ACT] [Put 2 of your characters to Rest] Choose 1 of your «探偵 Detective» characters, and it gains Power +1000 for that turn.

Our first new Elly card is a Bond card, that can also support the rest of your deck once she’s served that purpose. It also means she’s not useless when you can’t pull off the Bond.

Since it’s a Clock Bond, you can get an extra card without losing any of your resources, you’ll just put yourself closer to defeat. The Bonded card we’ll see next, and I’ll cover it there.

The second effect gives one of your «探偵 Detective» characters +1000, which will prove very useful during the early game, and could push [Japanese clothes, Cordelia] pretty high allowing you to defeat most Level 0 cards. Unfortunately this effect might conflict with [Drifting on a float, Sheryl], so you’ll have to choose which is the more important card to Rest your characters for.

Japanese clothes, Cordelia

Blue / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 2500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«探偵 Detective» / «スポーツ Sports»

[CONT] During your opponent’s turn, if your other [Japanese clothes, Elly] is in the Stage, this card gains Power +2000.

This Cordelia is the Bond target for the above Elly card, and she can become pretty powerful when the two are combined. When they’re both on the Stage Cordelia can hit 4500 during the opponent’s turn, meaning they’ll probably have to resort to Reversing cards in order to defeat her. Or else use up a Climax very early in the game.

During your turn you’ll probably have to use your support cards in order to push Cordelia over your opponent’s cards, since she’ll only be at 2500 otherwise. You should at least be able to build up Stock with her though, since the opponent might not be able to deal with her during their turn.

Rabbit ears, Nero

Yellow / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 2500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«探偵 Detective» / «お菓子 Sweets»

[CONT] If you have 1 or less other characters in the Stage, this card gains Power +1000 and [[AUTO] ENCORE [Put 1 Character card from Hand to the Waiting Room]].

The final Milky Holmes 2 card in this preview is a new Nero card, and is yet another powerful Level 0 to add to the deck. Like several other cards in the game she gets more powerful when she’s accompanied by only 1 other card, which is of course easiest to achieve during Level 0.

At 3500 power, she can handle many unsupported Level 0s, but also has survivability due to Encore. However if the opponent puts down something with above 4000 power she’ll probably struggle, unless they get a new support card to aid this.

Seasoned culinary skills, Asuna

«アバター Avatar» / «武器 Weapon»

[CONT] During your turn, if you have 2 or more other «アバター Avatar» characters in your Stage, this card gains Level +1, Power +1500.

Finally we have an Asuna card which actually has an effect this time. If you have 2 or more other «アバター Avatar» characters, which the deck should have most of the time, she’ll become a Level 3 with 10,000 power. This essentially makes her a vanilla Level 3 that you can play during Level 2. This could be useful for overpowering other Level 2 cards, or trying to match Level 3s that come out early. It will also allow you to get around Level 2 Reversers.
