Weiβ Schwarz Cards of the Day: 10th-12th of April

15 Apr

Little late on this, but the previews for the Vividred and Love Live TDs are now complete, so I suppose we’ll have something else to look forward to next week?

“Wonderful Rush” Minami Kotori

That's a straightforward effect.

Yellow / Level 2 / Cost 2 / 8500 / 2 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger

«音楽 Music»

[CONT] If this card is in the Middle Border of Centre Stage, this card gains Power +1000.

Kotori is a simple card, who is fairly limited in scope of what she can achieve. When in the centre she’ll outmatch 2/2 vanillas by 500, but anywhere else she’ll fall short by 500. This might be slightly useful when just playing with TDs, but usually you’ll want to get something more useful out of 2 Stock.

Momo on the way to school

Momo's back, and this time you can actually see her backpack.

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

«家事 Housework» / «ランドセル Randoseru»

[CONT] If you have any other character on the Stage whose name includes [あかね Akane], this card gains Power +1500.

This Momo is similarly a fairly powerful Level 2 card, except she’s cheaper and likely more consistent, however she’s not quite as powerful. When accompanied by Akane, she can reach 9000 Power. which is pretty good for a 2/1. The issue will be whether you can keep an Akane on Stage though, but if there’s an Akane support card this will be easy enough.

“Wonderful Rush” Nishikino Maki

Why are the Love Live previews less interesting than the Vividred ones?

Yellow / Level 1 / Cost 0 / 5500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«音楽 Music»

No effect.

Your basic 1/0 vanilla.

Connecting hearts

Nothing to see here...

Red / Level 1 / Cost 2 / No Trigger

Rest 2 of your Standing characters. After Resting the 2 characters, choose up to 2 «鍵 Key» characters from your Waiting Room and add them to your Hand.

Connecting Hearts is a useful event card since it allows you to salvage 2 cards, but comes with a fairly heavy Cost. Since you need to pay 2 and Rest 2, it means you’ll really need 2 Back Stage characters, and it can be quite a big drain on your Stock if used early. However you’ll ideally save this card for when important cards end up in the Waiting Room, allowing you to be ready for the late game.

“Wonderful Rush” Kosaka Honoka

The Level 3 finally arrives for Love Live.

Yellow / Level 3 / Cost 2 / 10000 / 2 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger

«音楽 Music»

[AUTO] When this card is placed on the Stage from your Hand, search your Deck for up to 1 «音楽 Music» character and add it to your Hand. Shuffle your Deck.

[AUTO] When one of your other «音楽 Music» characters attacks, during that turn, this card gains Power +1000.

The final Love Live reveal is for Honoka, who gets a fairly powerful Level 3, at least for a TD card. Her first effect will allow you to get another useful card, barring those rare instances when your Deck is simply out of worthwhile cards to search. Even then it could be useful for thinning it. Popular search choices might include other copies of this card, or character counters.

Her second effect allows you to buff her up, and hopefully defeat other Level 3 cards, but it does mean she’ll have to attack last. Also you can’t use multiple copies to their full potential at the same time. 12,000 Power combined with support can get through many Level 3s, but won’t usually be enough to get you outside Counter range.

Hearts passing by, Akane

If I knew the series, Rei would mean something to me...

Red / Level 1 / Cost 1 /6500 / 1 Soul / No Trigger

«鍵 Key» / «マヨネーズ Mayonnaise»

[AUTO] Encore [Place one character from your Hand in the Waiting Room]

The final Vividred preview is a standard 1/1 Encore card. It maintains the Stage better than other 1/1s, but lacks a bit in Power because of this. The usefulness will sometimes depend what deck you’re facing off against, and how many higher power 1/1s they’re packing.
