We’re drawing to the end of the Psycho-Pass previews now, especially since the full list has now been revealed on the Bushiroad site. For completeness I’ll still cover today’s cards here though. In addition to this, we’ve got yet another Climax card called Little Busters!
“Lemonade Candy” Akane
Red / Level 0 / Cost 0 / 2000 / 1 Soul / No Trigger
«公安 Public Safety» / «アバター Avatar»
[AUTO] When this card is Reversed, if this card’s battle opponent is Level 0 or below, you may Reverse that character.
Our first Akane card of the week is a basic Level 0 Reverser. These sorts of cards are useful for taking out early game threats, and just about every deck runs this kind of card. Since that all she does, she has slightly higher Power than many other Reversers.
Red / Level 2 / Cost 1 / Counter / 2500 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
«サイコパス Psycho-Pass» / «公安 Public Safety»
[ACT] [COUNTER] Backup 3000 Level 2 [(1) Place this card from your Hand into the Waiting Room]
This is your standard 2/1 counter. Nothing fancy about it, but it can give a decent Power boost.
‘Time’ to take action, Riki
Red / Level 2 / Cost 1 / 4000 / 1 Soul / 1 Soul Trigger
[CONT] If you have characters with 3 or more different Colours on your Stage, all of your other characters gain Power +1000.
[AUTO] [(1)] When [Little Busters!] is placed in your Climax Zone, you may pay the Cost. If you do so, all of your characters gain Power +2000.
Riki is a support card, but he might be a little hard to use without a deck dedicated to making the most out of him. His first effect is a powerful global 1000 boost, but it only become active when you have characters with at least 3 different Colours on the Stage. This means that you’ll need to be playing at least tri-colour to get him to even do anything. Since Riki is Red you could try and splash only a little bit of Red, and make the other two colours something else. Otherwise you might struggle to have a field that consistently get the boost.
The second effect is a Climax combo that gives your characters an even bigger Power boost, meaning that from his effects alone, you could boost your entire Stage by 3000 Power. If you manage to get two of him out everything you control could become quite frightening for the opponent.
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.
This is the Climax for the above Riki, and is apparently the 3rd time this Climax has been released. The TD had a Green one, whilst the original set had another Red version.
