Weiβ Schwarz Cards of the Day: 9th-10th of March

10 Mar

Bushiroad have started a Weiβ Schwarz twitter account this weekend, and to encourage people to follow them, they’ve been posting extra card previews when they reach certain numbers of followers. As such we’ve got a surprising number of new card previews this weekend.

“39 Get!” Hatsune Miku

39!

Green / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 1500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«音楽 Music»

[CONT] All of your other characters whose card name includes [ミク Miku] gain Power +500.

[ACT] [Rest this card] Choose one of your characters whose card name includes [ミク Miku], during that turn, it gains Power +500.

Up first we have a support Miku that is essentially a Project Diva version of [O-Bento Duty Shinji]. This card will be essential if you plan on playing a Miku-centric deck. Not only does she give all your other Miku an extra 500, but an additional Miku can gain another 500. This could make your characters quite fearsome during the early parts of the game, since a single character could gain up to 2000 Power, without it costing you any resources at all.

Kagamine Rin “Transmitter”

This makes sense given that they're twins.

Yellow / Level 1 / Cost 0 / 5000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«音楽 Music» / «メカ Mecha»

[AUTO] [(1)] When this card attacks, if [Remote Control] is in your Climax Zone, you may pay the Cost. If you do so, choose 1 of your opponent’s characters and return it to their Hand.

Kagamine Len “Receiver”

Not what you usually envision as a Mecha card.

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

«音楽 Music» / «メカ Mecha»

[AUTO] When this card direct attacks, if [Remote Control] is in your Climax Zone, you may look at the top 1 card of your Deck, and put it either on top of your Deck or in the Waiting Room, and during that turn, this card gains the following ability. [AUTO] You may activate this ability up to 1 time per turn. When this card’s damage is cancelled, you may deal 1 damage to your opponent.] (Damage cancel can occur)

Remote Control

Sounds like an old video game.

Yellow / 2 Soul Trigger

[CONT] All of your characters gain Soul +2.

Since the next trio of cards all work together I’ll be covering them all at the same time. The pair of Rin and Len cards both work with the Climax card [Remote Control] and they complement each other, with Rin’s effect allowing you to use Len’s effect.

Rin’s effect will be the more useful in general, since bouncing away an opponent’s character can make a hole in their defenses. This could allow you to get a direct attack, or alternatively get rid of a support card to make winning battles that turn easier. It can’t deal with the card permanently, but it will mean your opponent has to use up Stock to reuse the card. This effect could be useful at just about any point of the game.

Len on the other hand will only be useful when you can pull off a direct attack, especially since he is such a weak Level 1 otherwise. Usually to get a direct attack you’d need to rely on the opponent not filling their Stage, or to defeat one of their cards with a Counter. However with Rin’s effect she’ll allow Len to get a direct attack no matter what the opponent has in the way. This could be very useful for ending the game, since you’ll be nearly guaranteed to get 1 damage out of Len, barring a double Cancel.

Akita Neru “Original”

I'm bored, I'll go to sleep.

Yellow / Level 1 / Cost 0 / 5000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«音楽 Music» / «ネット Net»

[ACT] [(1)] During this turn, this card gains Soul +1.

Akita Neru is a derivative of Miku created by the fan community, and makes her debut today. She has a simple effect allowing you to increase her Soul by giving up Stock. This could allow you to cause huge amounts of damage, or alternatively Side Attack past a Level 3 for a precise amount of damage. She’s probably need to be saved for situations like this, or for dealing with other low powered Level 1 cards.

Megurine Luka “Eternal White”

Did Luka make it to the Arctic?

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

«音楽 Music»

[AUTO] When this card attacks, if [DYE] is in your Climax Zone, during that turn, this card gains 1 of the following abilities of your choice [[CONT] This card gains Power +2000.][[CONT] This card gains Soul +1.]

DYE

Why is Luka mainly speaking in numbers?

Red / 2 Soul Trigger

[AUTO] When this card is placed in the Climax Zone from your Hand, draw 1 card, then select 1 of your characters, during this turn it gains Power +2000 and Soul +1.

Up next we have a Luka Climax combo that could result it quite a fearsome Level 0 card. If you apply everything to Luka you’ll either end up with a 6500 Power, 2 Soul card, or a 4500 Power, 3 Soul card. The former would allow her to take on even some Level 1 cards, whilst the latter would allow her to cause a lot of damage. All whilst without losing a card in the process. The latter effect will only really be useful in the late game though, since you don’t want to cause too much damage in the early game. By then you probably don’t want a Level 0 on your Stage though. The former effect will be useful until you get past Level 1, at which point the power boost simply won’t be enough.

Usually I’d rather have Climax effects that have usefulness during later parts of the game, than early on, since they’ll have less impact on the final outcome of the game.

Yowane Haku “Original”

The personification of bad songs.

Blue / Level 1 /Cost 0 / 4000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«音楽 Music» / «ネット Net»

[CONT] If you have another character with [ASSIST], this card gains Power +2000.

Our second fan made character is Yowane Haku, who was made as a representation of Miku music that ended up sounding terrible. Along with the Meiko card that follows, she seems to be a new type of card that becomes more powerful when accompanied by cards with [ASSIST]. Usually this will be easy enough to achieve, since you’ll probably be playing a card with [ASSIST] on your Back Stage anyway. This would make Haku a 6000 most of the time, with practically no drawback or need for commitment on your part. It’s quite unlikely you’ll be lacking a card with [ASSIST]. It does however mean you might need to forgo global support cards, since they don’t have [ASSIST]. However currently the only card revealed like that is the Miku support from earlier, so it wouldn’t be used her anyway.

Haihahaini

Kaito makes his debut!

Blue / Level 2 / Cost 1 / No Trigger

Counter / Event

COUNTER You cannot play this card from your Hand if you do not have any «音楽 Music» characters on your Stage. Choose 1 of your characters, during that turn, it gains Power +4000.

Kaito finally appears in this event card, but you don’t even get to see his face. Haihahaini is a quite powerful counter card for the deck, since it gives a 4000 boost compared to the usual 3000 you get for a 2/1. However it cannot be used if you don’t control a  «音楽 Music» character, but since the whole series is  «音楽 Music» this should be little issue. If you did mix it with non  «音楽 Music» cards you could still use the counter on them, provided you had another  «音楽 Music» character though.

Being an event has the advantage of allowing you to boost a character on your turn, but has the disadvantage that it will usually be very hard to get it to your Hand, since events rarely have searching or salvaging cards.

MEIKO “Rei no Sakura Benitsubaki”

Meiko seems to be getting some of the best cards so far.

Red / Level 2 / Cost 2 / 7500 / 2 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger

«音楽 Music» / «和服 Traditional Japanese Clothes»

[CONT] If you have another character with [ASSIST], this card gains Power +2000.

This Meiko has exactly the same effect as Haku from earlier, it’s just it’s attached to a 2/2 instead. This means she’ll be a 9500 with little effort on your part, which puts her 500 above a 2/2 vanilla. Considering there is very little drawback to this card, barring your opponent clearing your Back Stage, it could make her quite a threat during Level 2.

    […] KAITO is a basic Assist card, that as with most of them also comes with an extra effect to differentiate him from other cards. In this case he can give a character an extra 500 on the turn you play him, meaning you can have a little extra Power to try and get over equally as well supported cards. The fact he’s an Assist card might actually be important for Blue decks, given cards like Haku. […]
