Thursday 2/28: Street Bouncer
In a change of pace from the pattern of iconic,
glamorous cards of the past several days, Street Bouncer
is a pretty unassuming guy that is part of the Nova
He’s also a card that few people want to pull out of
their Awakening of Twin Blades booster pack, at least
compared to other RR cards.
Street Bouncer is an 8K Grade 2 that can rest
himself alongside another Nova Grappler in the same row
in order to let his controller draw a card.
In other words, sacrificing a full attack in
order to draw a card.
Now, you might be thinking that this is a
relative waste of space compared to the other Grade 2s
you could be playing, and you’d be kind of right.
But there are situations where he can be useful,
or at least not any worse than another Grade 2.
Let’s say you have way too many attackers on
hand, or only weak boosters.
By sacrificing your attack, you can bolster your
(much-needed for Nova Grapplers) hand size, and by
extension defensive presence, and possibly get yourself
one step closer to your next trigger rather than making
your opponent ditch a 5K shield or other card they
explicitly do not need.
If you wish to control the amount of damage you
are dealing, out of fear for a Limit Break or
Counterblast ability, or simply to invalidate opponent
heals, you may also choose to use Street Bouncer.
And as a Grade 2, Street Bouncer can be easily
moved out of the way via intercept (against most decks)
when you don’t want him anymore.
If you already have a surplus of attackers in
your Grade 2 Nova Grappler lineup and have no other form
of utility you may want, it’s definitely worth
considering this one.
