Weiβ Schwarz Cards of the Day: 18th of February

A new week means more Sword Art Online cards, and this time we’re getting even more cards with salvaging abilities. I’m curious as to whether we’ll see a whole week of SAO to finish the previews off, or whether we’ll start to see some of the other upcoming sets.

Straight Trust, Silica

It's like she's in a JJ Abrams movie!

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

«アバター Avatar» / «武器 Weapon»

[ACT] Brainstorm [(1) Rest 2 of your characters.] Turn over the top 4 cards of your Deck, and put them in the Waiting Room. For every 1 Climax card amongst those cards, choose up to 1 «アバター Avatar», «ネット Net» or «使い魔 Familiar» character card from your Waiting Room and return it to your Hand.

Silica’s back, and this time with a powerful Brainstorm effect. Her effect is fairly costly, requiring the Resting of 2 characters, however this doesn’t have to be Silica herself, like those that just need one Rested character. This means that you can Rest your support cards and still attack with Silica. What’s more, her 2500 power means it’s possible she might actually be able to win a battle, as opposed to most Brainstorm cards which cannot do this. When her effect succeeds, she can get back a «アバター Avatar», «ネット Net» or «使い魔 Familiar» character, which I think covers just about every type of card in the set. This will allow you to build up resources whilst thinning your Deck, and lets you set up for future plays.

Determined Confession, Lisbeth

Red SAO seems pretty good.

Red / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 4000 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger

«アバター Avatar» / «武器 Weapon»

[CONT] Assist All of your characters in front of this card gains Power +X. Where X is equal to that character’s Level x 500.

[ACT] [(2)] When this card is placed on the Stage from your Hand, you may pay the Cost. If you do so, choose 1 character from your Waiting Room, and return it to your Hand.

Lisbeth is a Level support card, which as always is one of the best support cards for power out there. On top of this, she can also salvage a character from the Waiting Room when you play her, meaning you can maintain your Hand size when you play her. You do need to be careful you have enough Stock for this though, since it Costs 2 Stock. Since you’ll hopefully be playing Lisbeth just before a Refresh, you should be spoilt for choice, with most of your Deck available to salvage. This can allow you to get back your powerful end game cards that you might have Clocked or discarded earlier in the game.
